Combining the trilogies edit?

Author
Time

I’ve seen a couple projects (Reborn and Redemption namely) with the goal to edit together a cohesive trilogy of films that flips back and forth between the prequel and original trilogies to create a story where the Vader reveal is still a surprise and the prequels are used essentially as flashbacks. It’s truly a shame that both projects came to a halt and I was wondering if more like them existed in a completed state, or if anyone here has plans for one. I’d work on one if I had the time or the experience tbh

There was a edit called Lord Vader or something which did this exact thing. Not sure if I still have it though.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them.

What you’re referring to seems to condense the prequel trilogy into one film. I’m looking for three films that simultaneously tell Luke and Anakin’s story in a way that doesn’t spoil the Vader reveal and reveals every detail in the prequels at the right time to fit the original trilogy. Obviously it’d require substantial cuts to both trilogies, favoring the original ones.

Ideally it’d be something like film 1:ANH+TPM/AOTC, film 2:ESB+AOTC/ROTS film 3: ROTJ+ROTS

EDIT: A project called Renascent also planned to do this but I think only ANH/TPM+AOTC was ever finished, and it seems to be unavailable now

Have you heard of that edit called ‘The Mentor’ ? It’s basically A New Hope with injected Prequel scenes. It’s a fun watch - might be worth looking into.

I made “Vader” - a 7 in 1 edit, when I started here. it’s definitely not my best work, but if you are looking for a 3.5 hr movie that condenses the PT / RO / OT into a cohesive film (with a Vader POV; I cut out most of the rebellion’s scenes from the OT) then feel free to PM. My full outline can be found on its page.

I was hoping for them to be a trilogy in order to fit in a bit more content, but heck if this doesn’t look interesting. I’ll have to check it out when I have the time.
