I think there’s some stuff to add back in, maybe not as much though. What about just these changes? Some of the more tolerable that is more of a mix between the theatrical and your edits:

TPM:

  • Use Sir Ridley’s crawl but stick with original TPM title.

  • Put back the battle droid dialogue to one other, starting when they talk before going into where the Jedi are.

  • Have them go underwater to Otah Gunga, but trim it up however you can. Only use the first part of the submarine trip. (Mixed on this, the cut works so well for the pacing in your current edit but adding back in makes this edit different enough)

  • Make sure to include “sitting ducks.” But can still trim up Ric being so delighted by that little droid.

  • Could put back some of Jar Jar’s handful of, “Muy muy” lines.

  • Recreate the theatrical version of the engine startup sequence for the most part, but still remove “me no watchin’”

  • Put back Anakin’s “yes!” after Qui-Gon says “these are yours”

  • Put back “you mean I get to come with you in your starship?”

  • If any cuts remain to the farewell to Schmi, undo them.

  • Put back Qui-Gon’s line, “Tell them to take off!”

  • Put back scene on Naboo where the Viceroy sits on his walking throne, originally removed because it references the underwater trip to Otah Gungah.

  • Put back scene where Obi-Wan apologizes to Qui-Gon and Jar Jar emerges from the swamp. Be sure to remove added line over shot of company approaching gungans.

  • Revise Jar Jar’s antics throughout the battle. (Keep it as is, but put back “steady, steady” line, “ouch time.” Also, when retreating, imply he’s riding away on the animal and is shot off and lands onto the tank, using a boomer.)

AOTC:

  • Use Sir Ridley’s new title crawl, but with the original AOTC title.

  • Put back Anakin losing his saber and being (more gently?) reprimanded for it. And conversation entering the bar.

  • Anakin can mention attachment being forbidden.

  • Yoda and younglings instead of Mace on platform deleted scene.

  • Put back little description of Boba Fett.

  • Put back Obi-Wan and Jango’s dialogue, including name drop of Darth Tyranus.

  • Put back angry Ani in the garage, but cut down his confession of a slaughter and blaming Obi-Wan, when he turns to walk away cut to when he sits down:
    Anakin: “Why did she have to die? Why couldn’t I save her? I know I could have.”
    Padme: “To be angry is to be human.”
    Anakin: “I’m a Jedi, I know I’m better than this.”

  • When Obi-Wan reports to Yoda and Windu, put back Mace asking about the assassination of Amidala.

  • Maybe work harder to have only R2 leave the ship on Geonosis and save the day, as at least one other edit has done. Ideally not flying, though, as it’d be the only time in the films.

  • Put back the crowdpleasing saber duel with Yoda.

  • Sidious can address Dooku as ‘Tyrannus.’

ROTS:

  • Use Sir Ridley’s crawl, but use original ROTS title.

  • Put back line “this is where the fun begins.”

  • Use suggested order of scenes for the second act of the movie

  • Reorder dialogue for “The Senate scene”, if possible:
    Mace Windu: In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic…
    Palpatine interrupts with: I am the senate.
    Mace Windu: …you’re under arrest, Chancellor.
    Palpatine: Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?
    Mace Windu: Not yet.
    Palpatine: It’s treason then.

  • Reinstate youngling slaughter

  • Put back Obi-Wan and Yoda fighting to reenter the Temple.

  • Put back Kenobi and Yoda planning to destroy the Sith.

  • Keep trims to Obi-Wan and Padme, but add back in “killing younglings”

  • Redo Anakin’s and Padme’s conversation on Mustafar based on what makes sense now.

  • Reinstate Yoda duel, minding saber ignition sounds for consistency, and referring to L8wrtr’s version.

  • Put back dialogue about the ‘high ground’ at the end of the duel.

  • Film ends similarly to the theatrical, of course. Vader can still have his Russian yell, but Padme dies and we see her funeral, etc.

  • Try to keep the new shots that remove the droids from the twins’ birth.
