A New Hope - Reimagined

 (Edited)

I’m thinking about editing A New Hope with a few changes that I know will not be for everyone as a go-to but I think it’ll be a fun supplement. Mainly, I want to:

-New Soft Opening with Palaptine telling Vader the base on Scarif has been infiltrated and tells him to go there and secure the death star plans

-Battle of Scarif montage
(in this style but shorter) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jkNs7JtgC4&t=10s

-Merge Rogue One ending with ANH beginning

-Add in Sc.38 (in my own way)

-Fix Death Star explosion

-New VFX for TIE attack

That’s all i really have so far.

Any takers?

I’m currently working on a similar project. Would love to see how you handle this though. I think you’re very creative. This should be interesting.

This might be sacrilegious, but what about instead of an opening crawl, try to use prequel and spin-off footage to create a crawl in more of a “show don’t tell scenario”

Kinda like the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring

I’ve long wanted to see some short scene of the plans being stolen before the movie proper starts, so now I imagine clips from Rogue One such as Gold Leader going into battle and the Raddus receiving the plans cut into a short, impactful scene. Cut to “A Long Time Ago” then the crawl explaining what we just saw.

I’m thinking about a soft opening with Palpatine arriving at Vader’s castle on Mustafar (using Rogue One footage). I want to replace Vader’s servant with the Emperor speaking these lines (i’ve reached out to a voice actor for Palpatine’s dialogue) - only showing the Emperor from behind:

"Lord Vader…a small group of rebels have attacked(or infiltrated) our base on Scarif.

I want you to go there and secure the Death Star plans.

I expect you not to rest until you can assure me those plans have not been compromised in any way."

The bacta tank empties and we cut to the battle of scarif.

A montage of quick battle scenes of rebels vs the empire ensues (something like this, but not as long https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jkNs7JtgC4&t=9s ) with a build up and then goes black (no vader in any of these clips)…“A long time ago…”… and then a modified ANH intro https://vimeo.com/272771625

The plan for the bacta scene is to show Palpatine only from behind BUT if somebody wants to contribute some VFX work, i think THIS would be a great final shot for the scene… (no speaking lines from the front… just end the scene showing Palpatine from the front)

I think it would be kind of weird for The Emperor to kneel before Vader.

I agree. And I’m one step ahead of you… the kneel is cut. 😃

I like it in concept. Execution is good too. But I have no idea how you could make it feel more natural with royal guards or him exiting. What if instead of him going to Vader, vader has to go to a hologram room. It does seem weird that he would come get his subordinate

It’s cools though

I have a version of this ready to roll if anybody wants it. Right now, it is sans-rogue one intro but it has all the other additions:

-Add in Sc.38 (in my own way)

-Fix Death Star explosion

-New VFX for TIE attack

I wanted to use revisited as a base, but the quality just isn’t there. I used an edit for the base but only slight changes in the base (i.e. no jabba, lightsabers fixed, etc) Also, needs some additional color correction but ready to watch if anyone is interested. This one is mainly to put SC.38 into a cut for the people itching to see it in context.
