The Clone Wars is some of my favorite Star Wars, and the four part Siege of Mandalore/Order 66 finale was absolutely amazing. When watching it I thought it would work really well with RotS(as have many people), but I didn’t want to just use the theatrical or even extended version of the film…
Star Wars: Fall of the Republic
(This isv1 of my own poster that I’m working on)
This is my first edit to be publicly released, and I’m pretty pleased with what I’ve put together so far, rough as it is.
First off, Fall of the Republic is NOT a fanfix of Revenge of the Sith. This is an interweaving of
NFBisms New Canon Cut of Revenge of the Sith and The Siege of Mandalore four part finale of The Clone Wars.
The changes made to RotS by NFBisms can be found here, and for more info on that edit, check out the OT thread.
FotR includes Hal9000’s alternate ending from Labyrinth of Evil.
I have myself made only two minor cuts to RotS footage, both to facilitate the inclusion of Ahsoka’s story.
First off, New Crawl, and new title cards throughout the edit
Day 1 title card:
Brief appearance of the “Battle over Coruscant” piece that bleeds into the Battle of Yerbana
-We follow the events of Old Friends Not Forgotten until Anakin and Obi-Wan get recalled to Coruscant.
-Siege of Mandalore and Battle over Coruscant happen at the same time
After Anakin & Padme’s Balcony scene,
Day 2 title card:

-Ahsoka joins the final Jedi War Council

Anakin is “knighted”
Yoda is attacked
Rex’s Order 66 segment starts
The Temple burns and Padme cries
Rex gives out the details of Order 66
Ahsoka releases Maul
Ahsoka captures Rex
Ahsoka removes Rex’s chip
Atm all of part 4, Victory & Death happens here purely because I haven’t figured out how to intercut it with the rest of the film
Anakin returns to Padme
Day Five - Empire Day title card:
No changes from Obi-Wan finding Organa through to the epilogue, for the time being.
Birth of the Twins/Padme survives
This is the same as Hal9000’s version in Labyrinth of Evil
Cut C-3PO and R2’s last scene, the comedy of 3PO’s mind wipe doesn’t fit tonely with the epilogue, isn’t necessary to explain ANH, and makes a joke out of his sacrifice in TRoS
Replaced Padme’s funeral with Ahsoka and Rex’s final scene, followed by the scene of Yoda arriving on Dagobah. From here on the ending has been rescored to accommodate the darker tone.
After Obi-Wan passes Luke off to the lars, Vader’s final SoM scene plays out, and the film ends on a more somber note.
Anakin’s Betrayal plays over the credits, ending with a message from a familiar voice.
Clips For Feedback:
New Crawl (adapted from the final TCW announcer intro, coloured red to match the finale episodes and because I felt RotS should have always been red. The first title card appears after the crawl in the same font as “a long ago”. The music here and the sound overall as we transition from the crawl to the battle of yerbana are temporary until I can figure out what to replace the TCW audio with.
Battle of Mandalore into Battle over Coruscant:
I’m trying out different ways of starting off the two battles and getting from one to the next. Here’s one option.
Ahsoka senses Anakin’s Fall:
This is pretty straightforward. It is my attempt to show Ahsoka sensing Anakin’s fall as it is happening. Inspired by hedgesmfg
Order 66 - Extended:
Again, fairly straightforward. Ahsoka’s and Rex’s initial Order 66 segments intercut with the sequence in the film.
Extended Epilogue Rescored:
This is my current version of the ending, using the Labyrinth of Evil ending and TCW footage.
