Ideas for the Revenge of the Sith Fan Edit

Author
Time
I say first, I'd love to see an edit of Revenge of the Sith when it does eventually come out on DVD later in the year, but decided we can still talk about the possible changes people can/will make

-edit in the audio all the caughs that the General makes

one thing off the top of my head would be the "you're shmoopy!" "no, YOU'RE shmoopy" exchange between padme and anakin. if I recall correctly, that little bit of scene could be lifted wholesale out without losing anything, although it may interfere with the continuity of the wipe/pan down to the balcony.

i can't wait to see how MagnoliaFan deals with the midichlorians mention! i personally think that's a kind of cool story, except of course for the midichlorians bit. perhaps the whole bit will have to be lifted wholesale from the film?

Why Anakin really turned to the dark side:
"Anakin, You're father I am" - Yoda
"No. No. That's not true! That's impossible!" - Anakin

heh, dont think you have to be that extreme.

I was actually more pointing it out because of all the info there, and if i remember correctly MagFan posted some info on his plans for his edit, and i figured you guys would like to see that. Wasnt really about the repeat subject, cause its not like you did it purposly should have seen all the 'duplicate' threads the week after RoTS came out

It's really easily to lift the midi's line.

1. recut so Palpatine's mouth isn't showing (either a behind the back shot looking at the opera or an Anakin reaction shot) and change the line to "he could actually manipulate the force to create life."

2. cut the "creating life" line altogether to just "he could actually keep those he cared about from dying."

you know, this is what I've been trying to do in ANH to get the line 'If my blade should find it's mark, you shall cease to exist, but no matter', using an extended shot of Vader. Unfortunately, I can't get the audio cleaned up enough.

I'm not sure if this idea has ever been mentioned, but I'm not going through the whole ROTS thread to find out!

That Vader scream at the end of ROTS that everybody hates: the first thing I thought after hearing it was that the scream of rage sounded far more convincing in the "Vader vs. the Energizer Bunny" commercial where Vader's lightsaber fails and he opens it up to find cheapo batteries!

So, if you want to edit that scene, use the scream out of that commercial. I believe it's even James Earl Jones' voice.

I just hunted down the clip and ripped the audio for the scream.
You're right, the energizer scream does sound 10 times better.
The only tricky part would be isolating the scream from the music underneath it.

It's the same problem with cutting in the dialogue exchange from the Episode II trailers:
"I've heard this lesson before" "You haven't learned anything!"
The music underneath it throws everything off.


Oh, and if anyone wants a little cut footage, check out the Xbox game:
"Don't assume just because there are two of you, that you have the advantage."

Just try taking the scream and lowering the octave, I mean the one in the film. Open it up in Goldwave and lower the pitch, but preserve the tempo. See if that makes it better. Just seemed too high pitch to me.

In another thread I pointed out that this can easily be fixed by putting the tram in the background as these lines are said. As if they tram is passing. It covers the music pretty well.

Yeah, I've been talking about that line for a few weeks now. I have it ripped in MPG form, just waiting to get the ROTS DVD in November.

I was thinking of removing the Noooooo and replacing it with just an agonised scream or 'growl' or arrrggg or anything really.
Anyone got adio of James Earl Jones quietly sobbing? ;-)

The Aaaaargggghh from when he fights Luke in ESB. It may be too short, I dunno, but that's where I'm going to start.

Hmm, manipulating that into a Darth Vader voice.

Try lowering the pitch, I guess

Add in Deleted scenes, Siege of Mandalore, 2003’s Battle of Coruscant, and Fallen Order.

I wonder if there’s any threads from the upcoming laserdisc release of ESB in '84 you could bump.

Man, I felt genuinely bummed to recall looking forward to MagnoliaFan’s Episode III.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
