This project has evolved somewhat since I embarked on it a few weeks ago. Initially I was hoping to create a single cohesive Clone Wars film that would fit between Episodes II & III and would answer the main questions of who created the Clone army, what happens to Ahsoka, what is the nature of the Anakin/Padme relationship, and why doesn’t Anakin trust the Jedi.
This turned out to be too much and so I’ve moved to making a trilogy that tries to meet those stated goals of ensuring that the questions raised in the prequel films are answered by the time ROTS has ended.
So the first film, which is fairly close to completion will consist of:
The Clone Wars
Like fire across the galaxy, the Clone Wars spread.
As more and more planets choose to join
Count Dooku’s Separatists it falls upon
the Jedi Knights to lead the newly formed
ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC.
While the Jedi are occupied fighting a war,
no one is left to keep the peace. Chaos and
crime spread, and the innocent become victims
in a lawless galaxy.
As the heat of war grows, so too grows the
prowess of the Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker.
To prevent him from reaching his full potential
the Sith send the assassin Asajj Ventress to
strike down the young Jedi….
Anakin vs Ventress/Knighting Ceremony from 2003 Clone Wars
The Hidden Enemy(with the Clone arc cut)
Bombad Jedi(edited so that Padme is the sole hero)
The Movie (Christophsis battle/agreeing to train Ahsoka)
Senate Spy and Cloak of Darkness cut together
Landing at Point Rain/Weapons Factory/Legacy of Terror/Brain Invader (brain worms cut)
The film ends after the capture of Poggle and the burying of the Queen.
The scene where Sidious orders Dooku to kill Ventress plays after the credits.
Film 2 will (hopefully) consist of:
The opening battle of Nightsister
Pursuit of Peace/Senate Murders
The Citadel episodes
and the Zygerian Slavery arc
Ventress waking up in the wreckage is End Credits scene
Rise of Clovis Arc
The Wrong Jedi arc
Dooku ordering Greivious to prepare his attack as End Credits scene.
The hardest thing about these edits is transitioning from one arc to the next because so much of the setup for episodes is relayed through the Narration rather than dialogue.
But that’s what I’ve got so far.
