First of all, I know I’m going to be editing the prequels for my personal enjoyment. I’m not yet sure how extensive it’s going to be. However, I’ve had an idea for a while and want to know what you think of it.
Good idea or too ambitious? I want to dub Anakin’s voice in a few scenes in Episodes II to experiment with alternate lines of dialogue, a more serious quality, and a lower voice that would fit Darth Vader better. If it works out, I’m thinking of completing re-dubbing Anakin in Episode II and Episode III , rebuilding the sound mix from scratch.
Before you ask, I do indeed have the technological capability of doing that. My only problems would be some assorted sound effects (I can create my own), and unreleased music (I guess I’d have to replace it with available music). MagnoliaFan did something similar with the alien languages.
Good idea? I think if it was done right, it could make the films a lot better. Think of how much better the romance scenes could be with better dialogue. I could even change Anakin’s dialogue aboard the spaceship so as to avoid the awful droid factory subplot! It would take really good acting, but my question is whether you think it would be worth it to redo both movies, and also your suggestions on what of Anakin’s dialogue I could change, or anything about the character that you think could be changed by better voice acting or alternate dialogue. Even if I don’t have the time or energy to pull this off, it’d still be fun to talk about. However there’s a high possilbility that I might try this, being the crazy Star Wars fanatic that I am.
Your input, please?
