Wondering what the status is on this project and if it will ever come to fruition.
I am generally in favor of conservative edit of Ep 3. Hal9000’s is quite good, but I think it was a mistake to try to have Padme live by adding scenes from The Other Boleyn Girl.
I currently watch L8’s version as my go-to edit. However, one thing I strongly dislike is Anakin killing the younglings. I think it makes him irredeemable in Ep 6 and is also too dark for a Star Wars film. The security footage of him killing much older children gets the point across and is more palatable.
I also think people should get over the whole “Yoda shouldn’t wield a lightsaber.” He’s a Jedi; he knows how to wield a lightsaber. He does so all throughout The Clone Wars. It’s canon.
But those are just my thoughts. I feel like people are far less critical of the PT than they were even a few years ago, and thus a carefully crafted “conservative” edit is in order.
