For a while now, I’ve been working on my own fan edit that implements the very last arc of Ahsoka Tano.

I’ve seen one or two other people doing this.

Not going to lie, though, I’ve noticed those tend to be four whole hours long, which I think is WAY too much for a movie.

It’s like fans just want an excessive amount of fan service, rather than a movie that flows well.

In my fan edit, I’ve cut a handful of scenes from ROTS that I’ve always felt were way too dialog-heavy and dragged the story down to a crawl.

I’m referring to scenes like the one where Obi-Wan tells Anakin about the Council wanting him to spy on the Chancellor; with the addition of scenes from the Siege of Mandalore arc especially, that happens off-screen.

I’m about to work on my custom crawl, which is drastically changed from the original version.

Here it is so far.

TITLE CRAWL:

Episode 3

REVENGE OF THE SITH

Over the course of three years, the Clone War has raged on across the Galaxy between the Galactic Republic and the Separatists.

After Ahsoka Tano was framed for an attack on the Jedi Temple, she left the Order, but a chance to capture Maul has motivated her to join forces with Mandalorian warriors and Clone Troopers of her former mentor.

Now that Separatist forces have ambushed Coruscant and abducted the Supreme Chancellor, two Jedi Knights lead a brave mission to rescue him and reclaim peace for a crumbling Republic.

PAN DOWN TO CORUSCANT.

Obviously, I’m thinking about switching the episode number from Roman Numerals – I, II, III, IV, V, VI – to Arabic Numerals – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Roman Numerals are a Lost Arc.

I’m also thinking of changing the color from yellow to light blue, the same shade as the title card that says “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…” Already tried a preview, and I think it looks beautiful.

Also, would it be cool if I used the animated logo of OriginalTrilogy.com?

I saw that in the very beginning of IlFanEditore’s edits. That and the disclaimer were things that made me WANT to keep watching to the end.
