A few weeks ago I watched Darth Lunar’s The Blackened Mantle and it changed the way I look at fan-editing. Not only was it emotionally engaging, it actually made me feel emotions other than boredom!
This was entirely due to the superb Japanese voice acting and the brilliant dialogue changes. This got me thinking, “Why don’t I make my own version of this?”
And so DESTROY ALL JEDI was born!
My list of changes:
Non-linear story structure
This is done both to pay homage to the films of Quentin Tarantino and to provide better flow and emotion to the story. For example: the first scene in the edit is Anakin’s immolation. This sets the tone that this film is a tragedy.
No John Williams score
This is also done in order to achieve a Tarantino-esque feel. I have made sure to match the song to the tone of the scene.
This is done for obvious reasons.
Vader won’t be named and the suit won’t appear in this movie. Leia won’t be mentioned either.

I want as much criticism as possible! Please tear apart my new dialogue!
This edit will be relatively quick to put together, I just want to slow down and take my time with the dialogue.
