  • Opening space battle to the tune of Take On Me.

  • Together Forever for the cringey balcony scene.

  • Plastic love playing faintly on the radio during one of the Jedi Council meetings.

  • The Psycho Soldier theme for the Grievous fight.

  • Never Surrender for that scene of Anakin and Padme looking off into the sunset from different parts of Coruscant.

  • The Bangles’ version of Hazy Shade of Winter for Palpatine’s Arrest.

  • Burning Heart for the Mustafar duel.

  • Weird Science for Vader’s reconstruction, with additional shots taken from the music video for it and Batman Forever to make Palpatine’s lab extra cooky.

  • The rest of the soundtrack (instrumentals) is taken from 80s Doctor Who.

  • Color regrade inspired by Joel Schumacher’s Batman films.

  • MTV logo in the bottom corner.

  • Slightly degraded VHS look. Not too overdone though.

  • Use next-generation hair simulation technology to increase everyone’s hair volume.

  • Deepfake 80s actors onto the existing ones.

And there we have it, Direct-to-Video Revenge of the Sith (1989). Unfortunately, there’s no room for Michael Jackson’s Jar Jar due to the character’s more or less absence from the film.

Is it possible to see that clip?

Ask TheAlaskanSandman. I’d rather not have to go through the trouble of reuploading it myself if it can be avoided.

I know this gets said jokingly in this thread a lot, but (other than the deepfakes joke) this would be a really cool comedic edit of ROTS and I would absolutely watch it.

I saved a link to the post so that I can make you this edit when I get around to fanediting again. This would be a simple ~1 hour project, aside from stuff like the hair I probably wouldn’t actually do. Then again, I’d actually have to host this thing somewhere. It also opens up a can of worms of similar edits for the other films. That post was more just me killing time sharing my playlist than anything else. Kinda tempted to do Palpy’s Weird Science though.

Wait, Oingo Boingo’s frontman is Danny Elfman?! I never knew!!
