Reason for edit

Here’s a list of things I plan on doing for my 3-in-1 prequel edit:

  • The edit will be called “The Fall of Skywalker: A Star Wars Story”, in a nod to The Rise of Skywalker

  • Have the scene in TPM where Yoda allows Obi-Wan to train Anakin as a Jedi play at the very beginning before the Lucasfilm logo plays. If not, have it play after the “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” and before the opening crawl shows up.

  • No mention of the Chosen One (this means that I’ll be removing most of the dialogue at the end of the Mustafar duel, and that the only line staying there is Anakin’s “I hate you!!” line).

  • Removing tons of awful dialogue, obviously.

  • Mention in the crawl that Anakin is the son of Qui-Gon (who was Obi-Wan’s old master who was also secretly married to Shmi, and he wanted Obi-Wan to train his son as a Jedi at the time of his death).

  • The whole “Jedi aren’t allowed to have attachments” thing is removed.

  • Since I’m removing most of TPM, this means that I’m removing Maul altogether, and that Jar Jar will just be a background character. This also means that Padmé is just a senator and not a queen.

  • Save Yoda’s lightsaber for his duel with Sidious, and he’s a Force projection during the fight (the latter idea is not mine, it’s by IlFanEditore).

  • Some edits will be borrowed from other edits by users such as Hal 9000, ForceGhostRecon, IlFanEditore, etc.

  • After the binary sunset scene, the film ends with Anakin’s full transformation as Vader, ending with the shot of the metallic bed moving as we see a close-up of Vader’s helmet (no traditional Star Wars end credits theme, and will instead use this track by Alan Silvestri but without the Avengers theme at the end)
