A New Hope intro with integrated Rogue One Vader Scene

I put this together as a little experiment to see if it could work. The idea was to pretend (obviously) that the Vader scene didn’t happen at the end of Rogue One, but rather Vader was the first onto the Tantive after the ship was taken into custody.

So it goes:
-ANH intro
-Star Destroyer blast hits the Tantive
-We see rebels inside the Tantive running from explosion inside
-A rebel shuts down their main reactor (insert exposition by our fav droids)
-this causes the door to get stuck as the ship is being taken up into the star destroyer
-the rebels hear an explosion
-Vader carnage
-Rebel hits button to close the door
-the rebels prepare for second wave (stormtroopers and Vader again all ANH)

I’ve seen so many RO ending/ANH beginning mash-ups online, and they are all pretty similar, so I really just wanted to try something new. Let me know what you guys think!

The difference in filming style and the sound design don’t really allow for something like this. The shots in ANH are wide and long, RO is tight and short. Interesting take though, and unique among what I’ve seen.

I agree the filming-style differences were a bit hard to work with in this project and make it successfully mesh - and I actually rebuilt a lot of the audio, I appreciate the feedback!

Cool idea and well executed. Nice work!

Personally I would’ve put just the RO scene, and cut to the opening crawl after the shot of Vader watching the Tantive IV flee. The music always sounded like cliffhanger music to me. The way you edited works too, though.

Why guess how old Frink is when it’s easier just to say he’s a crotchety old man?

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?

pretty good I always thought this film was meant to cross over very slightly.

You could reverse the release clamp from Rogue one also to show the tantive being clamped in 😃
