Help Wanted: for my Clone Wars prolog - 'Begun the Clone War Has'

 (Edited)

The official word on the Clone Wars series is that it picks up right after episode II, but that clearly isn’t the case. The goal of this edit is to fill in as much of that gap as possible. Using the 2003 Clone Wars series from Cartoon Network I have created a prolog to the 3d animated Clone Wars series that mostly fits with canon. My edit includes the battle of Muunilinst (excluding Durge), the recruitment of Assajj, the first dual between her and Anakin, Anakin’s promotion to Jedi Knight, and Padme’s gifting of R2 to Anakin. The edit is basically complete; however I need some VFX help. I need to replace Anakin’s Eta2 with his yellow Delta 7. I have created a back plate to replace the ship but I’m terrible at masking. I also have created a new ship image for the Delta 7 that needs to me mapped over the other ship in a single angle take of shot, and map R2 to the center of the ship. Its 10 seconds of film that needs the VFX work. If anyone could lend a helping hand I would appreciate it.

Sounds quite interesting!

I could give my best crack at it.

Working on many edits, may take many years to complete…

This is awesome! I’m still new to VFX, so this is probably not my cup of tea, but please do send me a link when it’s done!

This sounds great! The first half of the show hardly contradicts anything seen in TCW (besides the Jedi interceptor showing up earlier) so it would fit nicely in a saga marathon.

Just being curious, are you keeping the first battle with General Grievous? I think some parts of it could be trimmed to better fit with the rest of the saga, but it would be nice to include this scene considering Grievous appears from nowhere in TCW (and the fact that the modern canon has sort of acknowledged that battle as having happened).

I have thought about it and even played with it a bit. I might come back to it and include it later, especially if I can get the part re-voice acted so it matches better with the movies and shows.

Thought about your suggestion and added Grievous back in. I will relase the film when the VFX is done.
