Hi Eddie (or anyone else here with knowlegdge on the subjeect).
I am diving into the world of Star Wars fan edits.
We were quite daunted by the thought of 14 seasons of animated content between TCW, Rebels, Bad Batch, Tales of, even the live action shows on top of that with some of the filler they have. I say we haven’t watched it, truthfully we’ve both seen a few episodes here and there in passing and felt we would definitely not be able to stomach that much animated content in the writing style of the Filoni-verse.
However, we were both intrigued by the idea of movie cuts because it seems much more digestible (might take a couple weeks instead of months). I especially wanted to do this after I decided we were going to watch acbagels Mandalorian and BoBF movie cuts. Ideally I was aiming to just watch movie cuts of all the series. ((the only thing I didn’t see working was Tales of the Jedi, but its so small I didnt see it being a big deal)).
Hi Patali! I can’t speak for Eddie but I can speak as a fan and a faneditor. I would tend to avoid movie cuts for the animated shows as a first watch. I feel the movie edits work better for the live action series as they tend to follow the trend of one ark per season, the animated shows however tend to follow a few different ark’s throughout.
I’d think you’d find the most enjoyment from tv style edits such as Eddie’s as it takes the content and makes it more approachable. It cuts down drastically on the watch time and presents it in a way where if you’re not enjoying an ark, for the most part, you can skip it! This is much harder to do with the original series and difficult to do with movie style edits. On top of this for Eddie’s edit, there is a spreadsheet that covers different watch orders for what you’re interested in!
I hope this helps answer your questions 😃
