Edits that rename IV-VI to I-III

Many of us don’t like the prequel trilogy, and I’m wondering if there’s any edits that rename Episode IV - A New Hope, Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI - Return of the Jedi to Episode I - A New Hope, Episode II - The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode III - Return of the Jedi, for those who don’t consider the prequels as canon anymore. If not, do you think these edits might get made someday? (I know, you’ll all ask me if I’ll do the same thing, but I’ll eventually make edits of IV-IX and rename them to I-VI, while making a standalone 3-in-1 prequel edit that acts as an anthology film similar to Rogue One and Solo)

Adywan’s Star Wars Revisited edits are to Blade Runner: The Final Cut as the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy are to the original version of Blade Runner.

I like parts of the prequels, but that would be interesting.
I sort of want to make a trilogy edit that combines the 3 movies of each trilogy into one film to create only 3 long episodes…

Pretty sure I saw you post this on Reddit, but there was an old thread about this from 2017 on here.

Yep, that’s me.

Honestly it seems like a waste of time. If it’s the only change your making, it’s not really a fanedit as much as a subtle tweak, not really worth rendering and downloading. If it’s one of many changes, why isolate a significant part of the audience by changing the episode number?
