Original Info:

Lately, I've been reading the e-book version of The Secret History of Star Wars (http://www.secrethistoryofstarwars.com) and thinking a lot about the Prequel trilogy and what they ultimately mean towards the original SW films. In going over these thoughts, I've realized something important about my previous attempt at a SW Prequel fanedit, Shadows of the Old Republic:

I'm not really as satisfied with it as I thought.

Don't get me wrong, I do like some of the work that I did on that edit. However, as a narrative work that details the events prior to Star Wars, I think that that story does work better as a series of films... abit, ones that could be greatly improved over it's original "Lucas" forms. Therefore, I've decided to go ahead and create my own versions of The Phantom MenaceAttack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith
