Duel of the Fates

"This is how it feels to be Anakin Skywalker. Forever."

 

Long before the battle of Endor, Anakin Skywalker was a Jedi Knight of the Republic. This is the story of how Darth Vader came to be, told by the Dark Lord himself. He recounts his life from gifted boy to Jedi hero to Sith villain.

 

The story is told in black and white, with contrast and brightness adjustments throughout to create new, striking cinematography.

 

The film contains all three prequels, reworked to be from Vader's perspective. Original Trilogy era bookends surround it, with a brief prologue detailing the end of the Great Sith War, a thousand years prior to the birth of Luke Skywalker. An intermission breaks up the action, allowing it to be viewed in two parts if you prefer.

 

New music is added throughout to create a new feel to existing scenes.

 

New narration, new character voices, new music. A whole new vision of Star Wars unlike anything before it. Purists beware!

 

A VAGUE CUTLIST:

- Entire movie is black and white.

- Added Overture.

- Added narration throughout.

- New music throughout from a variety of sources.

- Added Prologue Sequence: The Great Sith War.

- Added Darth Vader bookend scenes.

- Removed Gungans.

- Removed most of Jar-Jar. He is now just a senator.

- Redubbed Jar-Jar.

- Removed Padme/Queen decoy subplot.

 

More as I work on it.

I cant help feeling we're clutching at straws here, we need to at least wait and see the trailer first....

No hot models, nor any new effects other than visual style changes.

And no british Anakin. The only british Anakin ever was Sebastian Shaw, so I see it as his mistake. We had a pretty big discussion about this on my Jedi thread, but Hayden did the right thing, just did it poorly.

There may be some new dialogue recorded, however...

I'm actually moving Jar Jar's scenes to a Star Destroyer. I think it will really improve the narrative flow and create more tension.

I wish I could remember who did this, but someone moved the duel to the Trade Federation ship.  IMO it failed because it was just a cut/paste job so it was obvious the scenes didn't match.

That's a really damn cool idea, though!

Maybe with my color adjustments it would fit better.

Hmmm... You may have just spurred something on.

I don't really remember, it struck me as odd when I saw it....

It might have been one of the 3-in-1 edits on FE.org.  You might check my cutlists.
