* * * * *  Imp's MOVIE TRAILER SHOWCASE - Past, Present, And Coming Soon...  * * * * *

Welcome! 

Movie trailers, ya gotta love 'em.  From blockbusting epics to low-budget hokum, they've given us the first proper glimpse of many a cinematic gem to come.  And introduced us to a few 'turkeys' too, of course!

So being a huge movie fan in general, I wanted to take a look back at some of the trailers for the more fantastical and imaginative concepts that have ended up on the big screen over the years...especially if they've involved some sort of 'special effect' or 'man-in-a-monster-suit' along the way... 

As well as some old favourites, there may be a few things recalled that you've never seen yet...and looking ahead, I'll be adding future trailers of certain upcoming movies here too, as they become available.

(Note: I'd ideally like to keep a certain consistency to the layout here, but if there's any specific movie that anyone would like to see added (within reason!), please PM me, and I'll try to include it's links and poster at some point)

So feel free to add any thoughts on anything featured, and hopefully there'll be a few things of interest along the way for all you fellow movie fans out there.

And here's a little something to set the mood, as you settle in - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jG3m0YfVmk

 

Of course, I couldn't kickstart this roundup without starting with the previews that introduced me to my own favourite all-time movie...and my BEST cinematic experience ever! -

 

STAR WARS  (released 1977/directed by George Lucas)

Teaser Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEDFGzqMgpI

Theatrical Trailer 1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trFN69F--8g

(This next longer Theatrical Trailer happens to be my personal favourite STAR WARS trailer, but it wasn't included on the DVD boxset!  Unfortunately, this was the best quality I could find of it, so if anyone knows of a better version on YouTube, please let me know) - 

Theatrical Trailer 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BhZI9GcWdI

Re-release Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRilpXzwnto

The great characters!  The triumphant storyline!  The amazing effects!  The incredibly inventive design work!  As a fan of all things fantastical and imaginative, it had everything I wanted in a movie...and was perfectly wrapped up with one of the best movie scores ever!  Then, when a sequel was announced, it seemed like movie heaven at the time, and gave me the longest of waits to see if it would be anywhere near as good or not, and find out what would happen next...

…and after much speculation, the day eventually came where a little bit more movie magic was revealed…

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK  (released 1980/directed by Irvin Kershner)

Teaser Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKxOsPVB-u4  NOW GONE!  Will look for replacement soon.

Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9utBrJhfw60  NOW GONE! Will look for replacement soon.

Re-release Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AapHi7NB9GY  NOW GONE!  Will look for replacement soon.

Thankfully, EMPIRE turned out to be yet another triumph in movie terms, exceeding my high expectations in certain ways, and guaranteeing another sequel to conclude things.  However, it was to prove yet another looooong wait for me to see how things would eventually pan out…

RETURN OF THE JEDI  (released 1983/directed by Richard Marquand)

Teaser Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP-AUktxHhw

Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4cIPi_cBmI

Re-release Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMBbgdf05g0

As it turned out, I was more than satisfied with all the new visuals that rounded things off in JEDI!  It succeeded on many levels in giving a final, rousing send-off to the franchise and characters that had caught my imagination over the years.  All was well, and the overall ‘STAR WARS trilogy’ couldn’t have been more highly regarded by audiences at this point…

...and then one day years later, it was announced that everyone would get the chance to see 'souped-up', effects-enhanced versions back on the big screen again!  It turned out that you just couldn't get away from all the build-up surrounding their re-release, and so my anticipation was great indeed, once again...

 

STAR WARS TRILOGY 'SPECIAL EDITIONS'  (released 1997)

'Special Edition' Trilogy Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRgsMKu8oNA

...and it was indeed a blast to see and hear them on the big screen again!  And to see them introduced properly to a whole new generation of movie-goers. 

However...once the initial thrill had passed, there came the realisation that there were a few mis-steps amongst all the new box of tricks...  The 'Greedo now shoots FIRST!' thing was a travesty, and all the original fans knew it.  And did the guys who CGI'd the 'added' Jabba even bother to refer to how he looked in ROTJ, I wondered?  There were a few other new problems of course, but still, it was great to see them back on the big screen again, at least.

 

Then finally, at last!...the long-overdue DVD versions (with further 'enhancements') became available for everyone to own, to replace the much-loved videotapes of old...

 

2004 'Special Edition' DVD Release Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnLHCVf3seU

2006 'GOUT' DVD Release Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlrKLkugNaw

...but after all the waiting and waiting, the 'Special Editions' turned out to be somewhat of a let-down in the end...

Sure, they'd improved the likes of the ridiculous first CGI'd Jabba attempt, but the 'Han/Greedo shootout' scene was still bad compared to how great it had originally been...and it was obvious that quite a few problems remained throughout each 'SPECIAL'-ised movie now.  And the great look of the colours I'd been used to over the years were nowhere to be seen anymore on the 'Special Editions'...with many scenes being strangely-'tinted' and overly dark now. 

Whatever they'd done, I knew that Luke's suddenly-'green' saber, and Vader's occasionally-'pink' one, were not what I'd hoped for either.  And when I discovered that the sound mix was a mess in places too, then it suddenly hit me just how botched this whole 'Special Edition' release had been...  And the GOUT versions had ended up a poorly-treated, secondary afterthought too, in these days of high-quality transfers...  And to think that the people responsible used to be at the forefront of technical excellence...  Damn!

 

...but then by chance, I came across a certain little 'work-in-progress' trailer one day...

 

STAR WARS: REVISITED  (released 2008/fanedited by adywan)

Final Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlYpNo2vRmw

...and it led me to what turned out to be STAR WARS on steroids!  REVISITED was everything that the 'Special Edition' was not, and it's quality and amazing ambition blew me away.  And continues to do so!  It was one of my coolest finds ever, and it's given me the kind of 'enhanced' STAR WARS that I'll be able to enjoy time and time again into the future, without feeling disappointed now.  And Han gets to be the one to shoot FIRST, of course.  I only wish every other fan of the movie could discover it too. 

...and it doesn't stop there, as there's the next chapter to look forward to all over again as well, just as there was all those years ago...

 

EMPIRE: REVISITED  (coming 2011/fanedited by adywan)

Final Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ie_3YIF9s2s

 

...with JEDI: REVISITED to look forward to eventually too, of course...  In the meantime, here's a neat re-creation of the original STAR WARS teaser using adywan's enhancements, which I came across recently...

...and then out of the blue one day, it was announced that a whole new STAR WARS trilogy was coming after the big screen release of the original trilogy 'Special Editions'!!  And so the great anticipation started all over again...

Unfortunately, things didn't turn out to be quite what I'd hoped for this time around...and I was disappointed to find that the 'beginning' of the saga had ended up more 'childish' than 'child-like' in far too many places...and that there were many moments throughout 'Episode 2' and 'Episode 3' that grated badly too!...

 

STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE  (released 1999/directed by George Lucas)

Teaser Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYkHD9y8EqI

Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fo--sWDK_nU

Teaser Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SA6q3vHC5L4

Teaser Trailer 3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7DC-kNCS8c

STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH  (released 2005/directed by George Lucas)

Teaser Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0BWpIFZGDc

Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrBih5yMkT4

 

So as we now await to see whatever the BLU-RAY releases bring, I'm pretty certain that the next big screen showings will give us a few 'surprises' too...when the STAR WARS saga eventually gets premiered in 3D!

I'll certainly be there to check it out when the time comes, and I'm sure it's gonna be a thrill to see *some of* it back on the big screen once again.  Who knows what might end up being further 'enhanced' this time around?...but I just hope that the next generation of cinema audiences get to see Han firing FIRST, once again, if nothing else!

Okay, moving on from all things STAR WARS for the time being, I’ll continue onwards in no particular order…

THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD  (released 1951/directed by Christian Nyby)

Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYkcZMzBTpU  NOW GONE!  Will look for replacement soon.

THE THING  (released 1982/directed by John Carpenter)

Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hp8SkoRwS8

**Coming Soon… ** Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.'s THING prequel/remake is due for release in 2011…


PLEASE NOTE - JUST IN CASE anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime - although I’ve got many diverse ‘scene edits’ worked out for future use, I’m just temporarily using this space to visualise a few select ones for myself before I get a chance to start a couple of threads in the relevant forums to show a lot more ideas eventually!

But I’m still working on ideas for the wording and layout of all this for myself still, so things aren’t going to be written in exactly the way I written below. 😃

NEW THREAD TITLE - THE STAR WARS ‘SAGA’ RETOLD, from a certain point of view…

2021 UPDATE - I initially started this lengthy ideas thread shortly before the concluding sequel instalment THE RISE OF SKYWALKER was due to be released at the end of 2019. Finish off my comments here sometime - Maybe add that I’ve given it some thought since then, and what conclusions I’ve come to about it all. Not sure if I should be disregarding everything but the original trilogy, given everything I’ve written here already. perhaps mention I wasn’t expecting much, and I was even more disappointed. Emperor returning was the worst aspect for me…followed closely by the dad-killing Kylo getting a kiss from Rey. Confirm that I can’t include the existing versions in my own SKYWALKER SAGA viewing order, and that my preferred original trilogy ‘special editions’ will ONLY be adywan’s revisited versions in future. Also mention that I’ve gone back and streamlined my initial posts somewhat - should I only mention this when I post my new 2 - episode Sequels ending?

1st POST

Welcome!

There was a time when things were much simpler concerning the STAR WARS ‘saga’.

But over the years, the additional instalments conflicted me…and despite plenty of impressive visuals and soundtrack goodness throughout the ORIGINAL TRILOGY’s various PREQUELS and SEQUELS, I ended up wanting to ‘unlearn what I had learned’, where some of their content was concerned…

However, I wondered if it was possible to undo some of the footage and dialogue more to my own liking…so I checked back-and-forth…and after much scrutinising (and agonising too!), I found that MUCH LESS worked MUCH MORE for me in certain areas…

…so with THE RISE OF SKYWALKER about to conclude the current trilogy at the end of the year…I thought it might be fun to show what I’d change, and describe the moments I’d prefer to TWEAK, REARRANGE, OR COMPLETELY DISCARD for my own ideal ‘saga’ re-watch someday…

Just to clarify, I’m not currently editing any of these movies, and this is purely a visual description of how I’d LIKE to alter them for myself someday, if I ever find the time.

And while there’s sure to be things you don’t agree with along the way, perhaps some of you will find something of interest here and there.

Every now and then over the coming weeks and months, I’ll describe my proposals for various scenes from across the ‘saga’ in separate, numbered posts, and will update this initial post with the ones I’ve covered, for easy reference for myself.

All thoughts are welcome of course, but for the sake of everyone’s scrolling sanity…please don’t ‘quote’ the WHOLE of these lengthy posts if you wish to comment on anything, as just posting your thoughts will suffice, without us all having to see every single screenshot again, thanks. 😃

NEXT UP, I’ll describe my THREE (!) favourite ‘viewing orders’ which begin and end in the same way, no-matter-what…


2nd POST

By the end of this year, eleven ( ! ) major live-action STAR WARS movies will have been released in this particular ‘production/release’ order - A NEW HOPE - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK - RETURN OF THE JEDI - THE PHANTOM MENACE - ATTACK OF THE CLONES - REVENGE OF THE SITH - THE FORCE AWAKENS - ROGUE ONE - THE LAST JEDI - SOLO - THE RISE OF SKYWALKER - and there’s various potential ways to re-order them for ourselves…with different views on the best way to do it, as described HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , and HERE for example!

…so the first decision I had to make was…HOW would my own ideal re-watch of the existing movies begin?

Well, for certain reasons, I knew that I definitely WASN’T going to start off with the events of THE PHANTOM MENACE…

…and while I briefly considered the notion of beginning with ROGUE ONE instead, I soon realised that didn’t work for me either, due to one thing or another…

…so with apologies to George, here’s the only answer that absolutely works best for me EVERY time -

…AND SO ON…

(If you’d like a quick re-watch, here you go - CLICK HERE , and continue here - CLICK HERE)

Along with it’s majestic score and explosive sound effects, EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE’s dramatic mid-adventure opening scenes were my first introduction to the worlds of STAR WARS and it’s characters…and remains the greatest cinematic opening to any movie ever, as far as I’m concerned.

On top of that, it also remains the best movie to properly establish the overall look and feel of the STAR WARS universe in my view, which is why it will ALWAYS be how I’d begin any ‘saga’ re-watch for myself. 😃

…and while there are a number of possible ‘viewing order’ methods to watch the various STAR WARS movies released so far, I also consider watching the entire ORIGINAL TRILOGY to be the BEST starting point for someone completely new to the franchise too…so that ALL the great original character introductions and ‘reveals’ are kept INTACT for themselves, while giving better context for the various ‘references’ and ‘call-backs’ featured in everything else that followed…

…then by watching the entire PREQUEL TRILOGY storyline AFTERWARDS as an extended ‘backstory/flashback’ to earlier events, it allows for a longer period of viewing time to pass before they eventually go on to watch the entire concluding SEQUEL TRILOGY storyline too…so that the much older versions of Luke, Han, and Leia won’t seem as jarring, by the time they get to watching the THE FORCE AWAKENS.

So for all these reasons, I’ll always consider the original Episode 4-5-6, 1-2-3, 7-8-9 ‘Theatrical/Production’ release order to be the most satisfying and least confusing way to watch these movies for myself and others, if they were ALL to be included…but MAINLY because I’d recommend someone new to the franchise begins with A NEW HOPE first, no-matter-what.

EXCEPT… this scenario is messed up by the fact that George decided to replace elderly Sebastian Shaw’s ‘Forceghost’ with a creepy-looking young fella in the current ‘Special Edition’ of RETURN OF THE JEDI instead…which will make newbies ask “Who on Endor’s Forest Moon is THAT?!” if they HAVEN’T watched Hayden in the PREQUELS first!

It’s almost as if George INTENDED it to be awkward, if watched in any way other than his favoured ‘chronological’ order…

I wouldn’t normally want newbies to split-up the ORIGINAL TRILOGY to go directly from the highs of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK to the lows of THE PHANTOM MENACE (as it makes for a rude interruption of the hooded Emperor’s mysterious identity and menacing aura in the RETURN OF THE JEDI), but I’d certainly recommend that they use the 'Ernst Rister 4-5, 1-2-3, 6, 7-8-9 order if they’re going to watch the ‘Special Edition’ of RETURN OF THE JEDI…so that they’ll actually KNOW who that random ‘Forceghost’ guy is, by the time they get to him in that particular order!

And it still ensures that someone new starts off with A NEW HOPE first, so that’s good.

But luckily for my own re-watching intentions… (those 2006 GOUT ‘bonus’ DVD discs aside), the likes of Harmy’s ‘Despecialized Edition’ of RETURN OF THE JEDI and ‘Project 4K83’ both sort out the ‘Hayden’ problem in the meantime.

…and for future purposes, adywan’s ongoing RETURN OF THE JEDI REVISITED has got my back too -

NOTE: This is work-in-progress shot that was previewed recently.

Which brings me to the versions of the ORIGINAL TRILOGY I’d ideally include in my own ‘saga’ re-watch…

I’ll always have a huge nostalgic preference for the actual '77 - '80 - '83 original versions over the existing ‘Special Edition’ recuts…but adywan’s incredible enhancements and fixes for A NEW HOPE and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK took things to a whole new level for me, and will always amaze…so his ongoing REVISITED TRILOGY is my definitive choice nowadays…and I’m looking forward to seeing his inventive new ideas for RETURN OF THE JEDI too, someday.

And of course, the fact that the Tantive IV recedes further away than ever in adywan’s makeover of A NEW HOPE’s iconic opening shot, is what clinched it for me… 😃

CLICK HERE for the sheer perfection of that.


SO TO RECAP, HERE’S MY FAVOURITE ‘VIEWING ORDER’ OF EVERYTHING SO FAR -

  • ORIGINAL TRILOGY storyline to kick things off with Luke, Han, and Leia…

  • PREQUEL TRILOGY storyline as a ‘backstory/flashback’ to earlier events…

  • SEQUEL TRILOGY storyline as a ‘jump-forward-in-time’ to conclude the ‘Skywalker saga’ with much older Luke, Han, and Leia…

  • SOLO storyline as a ‘backstory/flashback’ to fun times with Han and Chewie…

  • ROGUE ONE to ALWAYS finish things off as a final ‘backstory/flashback’ to bittersweet events involving some familiar faces and settings…as a way of rounding things off with where it all started off in the first place…

  • …and then I’d eventually start off with the exact same ‘viewing order’ once again…whenever I decide to have ANOTHER re-watch of the whole ‘saga’ spread over a period of nights, someday in the future! 😃


…AND HERE’S MY 2nd-FAVOURITE ‘VIEWING ORDER’ -

There’s also a case to be made for watching the entire ORIGINAL TRILOGY and the entire SEQUEL TRILOGY back-to-back, despite suddenly seeing much older versions of Luke, Han, and Leia as I mentioned previously…so that I could have SIX continuous movies in-a-row with the ‘main cast’ throughout…WITHOUT interrupting things with the PREQUEL TRILOGY storyline as a ‘backstory/flashback’ in-between…and WITHOUT the need to place it at the beginning either…

…so that when THE RISE OF SKYWALKER concludes, I’d then follow it up with THREE ‘backstory/flashbacks’ in-a-row for some extra STAR WARS goodness to end things on…

SO IT WOULD GO LIKE THIS -

  • ORIGINAL TRILOGY storyline to kick things off…

  • SEQUEL TRILOGY storyline as a ‘jump-forward-in-time’ to conclude things with older Luke, Han, and Leia…

  • PREQUEL TRILOGY storyline as a ‘backstory/flashback’ to earlier events…

  • SOLO storyline as a ‘backstory/flashback’ to fun times with Han and Chewie…

  • ROGUE ONE to ALWAYS finish things off as a final ‘backstory/flashback’ to bittersweet events involving some familiar faces and settings…as a way of rounding things off with where it all started out in the first place…

  • …ready to begin all over again someday, in the exact same way!


…AND HERE’S MY 3rd-FAVOURITE ‘VIEWING ORDER’ -

Although I’ve chosen not to split-up the ORIGINAL TRILOGY in the above two options, I actually quite like the ‘Ernst Rister’ scenario in certain ways too - it’s not just the way it resolves ‘Haydens’ confusing appearance as a ‘Forceghost’ in RETURN OF THE JEDI if anyone wants to start off with the ‘Special Editions’ of the ORIGINAL TRILOGY before the PREQUELS…it’s also because there’s a case to be made for STRETCHING OUT the uncertainty and loose ends of where everything left off at the end of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK a lot longer…to allow for watching the build-up of Palpatine and Anakin’s rise to power BEFORE we resume with their relationship as Emperor and Vader in RETURN OF THE JEDI, and BEFORE we find out what happened to Han…

SO IT WOULD GO LIKE THIS -

  • ORIGINAL TRILOGY storyline to kick things off with Luke, Han, and Leia…

  • PREQUEL TRILOGY storyline as a ‘backstory/flashback’ to earlier events, after THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK ends in uncertainty…

  • ORIGINAL TRILOGY storyline resumes with RETURN OF THE JEDI…

  • SEQUEL TRILOGY storyline as a ‘jump-forward-in-time’ to conclude things much with older Luke, Han, and Leia…

  • SOLO storyline as a ‘backstory/flashback’ involving fun times with Han and Chewie…

  • ROGUE ONE to ALWAYS finish things off as a final ‘backstory/flashback’ to bittersweet events involving some familiar faces and settings…as a way of rounding things off with where it all started out in the first place…

  • …ready to begin all over again someday, in the exact same way!


But whether you’ve got a preferred order of your own or not…we finally come to the amendments I’ve got in mind for the actual movies themselves…and NEXT UP, I’ll describe my proposed NEW OPENING for THE PHANTOM MENACE…

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

3rd POST

While some may baulk at the idea of including the entire PREQUEL TRILOGY in their own ideal ‘viewing order’, I definitely want to include it in mine for various reasons…

…just NOT BEFORE watching the ORIGINAL TRILOGY first…and NOT in it’s existing form either, ideally! 😃

So to start things off, here’s my proposed NEW OPENING for THE PHANTOM MENACE which I’d like to see…as a way to introduce and reinforce the PREQUEL TRILOGY’s entire ‘backstory/flashback’ storyline at some point AFTER I’ve watched the ORIGINAL TRILOGY first…

…and as with all my future examples, I’ll put an ‘asterix’ beside the word ‘CUT’ to indicate every time I’m showing a completely new cut that’s different from how things appear in the actual movie -

WE START OFF with the usual 20TH CENTURY FOX FOX/LUCASFILM logos and fanfare, as the silent blue wording fades to black -

…and then we CUT* to an ENTIRELY NEW OPENING incorporating some footage from A NEW HOPE, which acts as a short ‘reprise’ of certain events from that movie…beginning with an ‘establishing shot’ of Obi-Wan’s dwelling on Tatooine as we hear Artoo’s faint whistles -

…and then we CUT* to the close-up of Luke saying “YOU FOUGHT IN THE CLONE WARS?” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan discusses Luke’s father, then hands over his lightsaber -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan tells Luke what happened to his father, before this introductory ‘prologue’ ends with the close-up of Obi-Wan declaring “…BEFORE THE DARK TIMES…BEFORE THE EMPIRE!” -

NOTE: By adding this short ‘reprise’, it ensures that I would NEED to watch the ORIGINAL TRILOGY beforehand to give these characters their proper context at this point, which suits me fine…and it would help to kick off this ‘middle section’ of my preferred Episode 4-5-6, 1-2-3, 7-8-9 ‘saga’ viewing order with some additional ‘gravitas’ for myself…and of course, I’d IDEALLY use adywan’s STAR WARS REVISITED footage for this, seeing as it’s his enhanced version of A NEW HOPE that I’d choose to start off my ‘saga’ re-watch with, in the first place! - CLICK HERE FOR EXAMPLE

…and then we CUT* to the receding STAR WARS main title at this point, as this PREQUEL TRILOGY ‘flashback’ to the CLONE WARS ‘backstory’ begins -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see THE PHANTOM MENACE’s receding description ‘scroll’ -

NOTE: I’m content to stick with the integrity of George’s underwhelming scroll wording as it is, seeing as it WON’T be the introductory description at the start of my overall ‘saga’ viewing order any longer. And adding the ‘prologue’ scene with Luke and Obi-wan beforehand will help to improve it’s dull scenario a little for me too.

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see the red Tantive ship heading towards us -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Tantive ship passes us and heads away towards the planet Naboo which is surrounded by larger ships -

…and then we CUT* to the close-up of the Tantive ship’s Captain clicking on a switch, as she says “WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, THE AMBASSADORS FOR THE SUPREME CHANCELLOR WISH TO BOARD IMMEDIATELY” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we pan upwards to the monitor to see Nute Gunray saying “YES, OF COURSE…” -

…and then we CUT* to the interior of the Tantive ship as Nute Gunray says the words “…AND WE’D BE HAPPY TO RECEIVE THE AMBASSADORS” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Tantive ship dives downwards, and then lands in a docking bay -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the two Jedi are met by a silver droid and led along a corridor -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the silver droid leaves the waiting room, and the two Jedi finally reveal themselves, as Obi-Wan says “I HAVE A BAD FEELING ABOUT THIS”, followed by Qui-Gon saying “I DON’T SENSE ANYTHING”, followed by Obi-Wan saying “IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MISSION MASTER, IT’S SOMETHING…ELSEWHERE, ELUSIVE” -

…and then we CUT* to the hologram of Palpatine telling Nute Gunray “WE MUST ACCELERATE OUR PLANS” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the close-up of Palpatine then says “BEGIN LANDING YOUR TROOPS” -

…and then we CUT* to Nute Gunray saying “AND THE JEDI?” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Palpatine says “THE CHANCELLOR SHOULD NEVER HAVE BROUGHT THEM INTO THIS, KILL THEM IMMEDIATELY!” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Nute Gunray bows, and then says “YES, YES MY LORD, AS YOU WISH”, as Palpatine’s hologram fades away -

…and then we CUT* to the silver droid entering the doorway as it brings refreshments to the Jedi -

…and then we continue on as normal. as Obi-wan says **“IS IT IN THEIR NATURE TO MAKE US WAIT THIS LONG?”, while Qui-gon taps his hand impatiently -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship in the docking bay, as the pilot says “CAPTAIN LOOK!”, followed by the captain saying “SHIELDS UP!”, as the ship gets blown up -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Jedi jump up igniting their lightsabers, and the silver droid drops it’s tray, as gas begins to fill the room, and the Jedi hold their breath -

NOTE: This way, the pace of the opening scenes of THE PHANTOM MENACE move along with a greater sense of urgency overall, compared to the existing movie…while retaining the only Nute Gunray/Palpatine dialogue I want to keep…and by having Nute Gunray in mid-conversation with Palpatine this way, it makes it look as if Nute contacted him because he ALREADY realised that the hooded ‘ambassadors’ were actually Jedi…and didn’t just rely on that random silver droid happening to mention the possibility to him, for him to be aware of the fact! Or alternatively, it can be imagined that Palpatine found out what the Supreme Chancellor was up to at this point, and it was him that contacted Nute about it!

Additionally, it also gets rid of Palpatine’s ludicrous “stunted slime” retort which really grinds my gears (is that REALLY the worst term of abuse a Dark Lord Of The Sith could manage??! 😃), while also removing the whining Neimoidian he’s referring to…so that we are only introduced to the MAIN DUO of Nute Gunray and his advisor Rune Haako right from the start.

So that’s the exact opening to the PREQUEL TRILOGY’s ‘backstory’ which I’d like to see, and while I don’t have the time to put a full-length video example together, here’s a few individual snippets to give a decent idea of how the majority of it would all look and sound overall, if you play them one after another -

2nd Part - CLICK HERE - (Establishing shot on Tattooine)

3rd Part - CLICK HERE - (Luke and Obi-wan’s discussion)

7th Part - CLICK HERE - (Palpatine hologram orders Nute Gunray to begin landing his troops)

NEXT UP, I’ll describe my proposed NEW ENDING for REVENGE OF THE JEDI which shows how I’d prefer to conclude the PREQUEL TRILOGY’s ‘backstory’/‘flashback’ in a certain ‘stylised’ way for myself…which would feature MUCH LESS dialogue and a MUCH MORE uninterrupted flow of John Williams’ evocative soundtrack music to end things on…

But it’s taken me a while to draft it up bit-by-bit, as I want to cover every single alteration I’ve got in mind for the WHOLE of the final 1 hr 6 mins. (!) of the movie’s multi-strand ending, starting from when Anakin and Obi-wan begin duelling…which means it’s going to be the LONGEST post I’ll ever need to show here…but I’m nearly there with it all, and it should be up here within the next few days, when I get the chance to finish it off.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

followed by Qui-Gon saying “NO, I SENSE AN UNUSUAL AMOUNT OF FEAR FOR SOMETHING AS TRIVIAL AS THIS TRADE DISPUTE”, while Obi-wan takes a drink from the droid, as Qui-gon then takes a cup from the droid’s tray too -

NOTE - MENTION THE WORD ‘COMPROMISE’ SOMEWHERE IN ALL THIS

NOTE: the clip shown in C. is a shortened version of adywan’s REVISITED scene as seen here - https://streamable.com/30bu3 (NOTE - I’m still undecided whether to include the WHOLE scene or not)

NOTE - END BY SAYING I’LL BE SHOWING MY CHANGES TO THE NEMOIDIANS AND DESTROYER DROIDS SEQUENCE WHICH COMES AFTER ALL THIS, ALONG WITH MY CHANGES TO THE JAR JAR INTRODUCTION.

Blockquotes can also be nested…/highlighted in a block of blue like this example, by adding an arrow pointed to the right at the start of the sentance I want highlighted. NOTE - LEAVE A GAP BETWEEN THE ARROW AND FIRST LETTER.

NOTE - TO TURN A WHOLE TYPED-OUT LINK ADDRESS INTO THE WORD ‘HERE’, I JUST NEED TO TYPE THIS IMMEDIATELY BEFORE IT - [link] AND ALSO ADD NORMAL CURVED BRACKETS LIKE THIS TO THE BEGINNING AND END OF THE LINK ADDRESS - ( )

NOTE - Just in case anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime, I’ve just temporarily used this space to put the following edit ideas/shots on here to remind myself about them at some point! 😃 -

NOTE - I NEED TO ADD A LOT MORE ‘FILLER’ SCREENSHOTS TO THIS, AND MIGHT MENTION THAT I ALWAYS TRY TO IMAGINE ANY SCENES I’M DISCARDING AS BEING LOST ‘DELETED SCENES’, TO SEE IF I’D REALLY HAVE WANTED TO INCLUDE THEM IF THEY’D BEEN NEWLY DISCOVERED!

(ADDITIONAL NOTE to myself: the Screencaps site doesn’t include the 20TH CENTURY FOX logo or the ‘rainbow’ LUCASFILM logo, so I would just use the first 2 image links immediately below to show them instead) - ANOTHER ADDITIONAL NOTE to myself: To get any of these links to actually show as pics on this site, I need to add ![]( to the very beginning of them, and then ) at the very end too!

https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/2/20/Logo_20th_century_fox.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20060309022114

  1. SILVER LUCASFILM LOGO (NOTE - the ‘Force Awakens’ version is larger)

(NOTE - I MIGHT possibly use the ‘colourful’ version instead of the ‘silver’ version…and I MIGHT go for a totally ‘hybrid’ intro. scene of my own which would go like this - 20TH CENTURY FOX logo and ‘FANFARE’ music begins/then instead of the LUCASFILM logo at this point, we’d see the STAR WARS title recede away to the rest of the ‘FANFARE’ music/then we’d see the LUCASFILM logo and the ‘A LONG TIME AGO…’ wording in silence, in the same kind of way that ROGUE ONE starts…OR ALTERNATIVELY…I MIGHT just keep the 20TH CENTURY FOX logo and LUCASFILM logo in their normal place with the ‘FANFARE’ music, and THEN have the STAR WARS title recede away in silence before we then see the ‘A LONG TIME AGO…’ wording in silence too…OR ANOTHER POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE…I MIGHT replace the 20TH CENTURY FOX logo with the receding STAR WARS title instead, as we then see the LUCASFILM logo, and then see the ‘A LONG TIME AGO…’ wording)

  1. A LONG TIME AGO… INTRO. WORDING (NOTE - the ‘Force Awakens’ version is larger)

(NOTE - I then MIGHT possibly put receding STAR WARS MAIN TITLE/static starfield over ROGUE ONE music/or SILENCE at this point instead!? - but see new idea above)

(NOTE - I won’t be including either the ROGUE ONE or SOLO ‘Main Titles’ in my edits of these ‘standalone’ movie spin-offs, due to the fact that I really dislike the weak look of the ROGUE ONE font, and because I’m DISCARDING the entire first 25 mins. of SOLO altogether, including it’s ‘Main Title’. I also dislike that the SOLO ‘main title’ includes the byline ‘A Star Wars Story’ but ROGUE ONE doesn’t, even though they are BOTH ‘standalone’ spin-offs - so the A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… wording effectively becomes the common ‘main title’ which introduces these ‘standalone’ storyline settings)

I’m intending to TOTALLY DISCARD all the various scenes that are seen BEFORE the ‘JEDHA IMPERIAL-OCCUPIED MOON/SAW’S GANG WITH BHODI’ scene (NOTE - SHOULD I LIST THEM TOO?), but here’s the movie’s current order of scenes shown AFTER that -

JEDHA IMPERIAL-OCCUPIED MOON/SAW’S GANG WITH BHODI…

…which transitions into WOBANI PLANET/IMPERIAL LABOR CAMP PRISON TRUCK RESCUE OF JYN ERSO…

…which transitions into SHIP HEADED TO YAVIN 4/REBEL ALLIANCE HEADQUARTERS/JYN’S INTERROGATION/SHIP LEAVING YAVIN 4…

…which transitions to SAW’S INTERROGATION OF ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ BHODI…

…which transitions to TIE FIGHTER APPROACHING STARDESTROYERS OVER DEATHSTAR/TARKIN’S DISCUSSING ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ WITH KRENNIC/TARKIN LOOKING OUT AT DEATHSTAR…

…which transitions to BLACKNESS/FLASHBACKS OF YOUNG JYN WITH HER PARENTS AND KRENNIC/GIVEN A PENDANT BY HER MOTHER/HUGGED BY HER FATHER/BALD SAW OPENING THE HATCH…

…which transitions to JYN SUDDENLY WAKENING UP TO LOOK AT HER PENDANT/LOOKING OUT AT JEDHA PLANET/LANDING ON JEDHA

NOTE - although I’m DISCARDING the ‘flashback’ scene altogether, I’m still deciding whether the rest of this current order of scenes sufficiently tells the story of the ‘defector pilot’ Bhodi well enough for me in this order, or not. If not, then I’m thinking about focusing on him more right from the start like this instead -

START OFF WITH THE USUAL 20TH CENTURY FOX/LUCASFILM LOGOS AND FANFARE -

OR -

BUT I PREFER THE LARGER VERSION OF COURSE (NOTE - PERHAPS I COULD EVEN GO WITH THE NEW SHORT LUCASFILM THEME ACCOMPANYING THE SILVER LOGO, AS A WAY OF INTRODUCING A LITTLE ‘ANTICIPATORY’ MUSIC TO BEGIN WITH??) -

NOTE - SEE THIS SITE FOR SIZE REFERENCE - https://logos.fandom.com/wiki/Lucasfilm/Other

CUT TO THE JEDHA IMPERIAL-OCCUPIED MOON FOR MY NEW OPENING, AS THE ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ BHODI IS THEN TAKEN TO MEET SAW’S GANG -

SCENE ENDS ON ‘PULL-BACK’ OF ‘JEDI ROCKS’ -

CUT TO CLOSE-UP OF SAW APPROACHING TO QUESTION BHODI -

BHODI IS TAKEN AWAY WHEN SAW ORDERS “BOR GULLET!” TO HIS GANG (NOTE - I definately WON’T be including the CGI creature however!) -

TRANSITIONS TO A TIE-FIGHTER, AS KRENICK AND TARKIN DISCUSS THE ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ ABOARD A STARDESTROYER NEAR THE DEATH STAR -

SCENE ENDS ON TARKIN LOOKING OUT AT THE DEATH STAR -

CUT TO WOBANI IMPERIAL PRISON PLANET AND JYN’S RESCUE FROM A TRANSPORT VEHICLE (NOTE - I’ll probably cut to the WOBANI planet shot rather than direcly to the transport vehicle…as it might seem as if the transport vehicle is supposed to be on the Death Star that Tarkin is looking at, if I just join those two shots together directly!) -

(REMOVE close-up shots of Jyn ‘suddenly sitting upright’ and ‘the sleeping alien’)

SCENE ENDS ON JYN BEING THROWN ON GROUND BY DROID -

TRANSITIONS TO YAVIN 4 AND JYN’S INTERROGATION BY REBELS -

END OF JYN GETTING INTERROGATED -

TRANSITIONS TO JYN AND CASSIAN ABOUT TO LEAVE REBEL BASE -

SCENE ENDS ON SHIP FLYING AWAY FROM YAVIN 4 -


  1. ROGUE ONE MAIN TITLE

(OR alternatively, place receding STAR WARS MAIN TITLE/static starfield over ROGUE ONE music/or SILENCE here instead!? - https://caps.pictures/197/7-starwars4/full/star-wars4-movie-screencaps.com-3.jpg )

(NOTE - either way, I might decide to put MAIN TITLE immediately after No. 2 wording instead?)

NOTE - I MIGHT BE DISCARDING THE ‘ROGUE ONE’ AND ‘SOLO’ MAIN TITLES ALTOGETHER FOR MY VERSIONS, SO I’D CUT FROM THE SHOT OF TARKIN STARING AT THE DEATH STAR TO THE SHOT OF JYNN AWAKENING SUDDENLY INSTEAD, AS THE SHIP APPROACHES JEDHA - the choice I have to make is whether to KEEP the movie’s current order of scenes which give the impression that the REBELS know about the defector BEFORE the EMPIRE does (even though my opening scene has one of Saw’s men saying the Imperials will be looking for the defector - and also because I’m discarding the scene of Cassian being told about it by an informer)…OR to try and cut it in the way I’ve shown above - but this rests on the cut from the ship leaving Yavin 4 directly to the close-up shot of Jynn waking up suddenly working smoothly

ALTERNATIVELY - I COULD START WITH BHODI CAPTURED BY SAW’S GANG, WHICH TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL TO WOBANI PLANET AND JYN’S JAILBREAK, WHICH TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL TO YAVIN 4 AND JYN’S INTERROGATION…BUT CUT TO SAW’S LEGS AND THE BHODI’S INTEROGATION WHICH TRANSITIONS TO TARKIN ON THE DEATH STAR, AT THE END OF JYN’S INTERROGATION WHERE HER CLOSE-UP IS OFFERED FREEDOM…AND THEN CUT TO JYN AND CASSIAN WALKING IN THE BASE JUST AFTER THE SHOT OF TARKIN STARING AT THE DEATH STAR, AND ONCE THAT SCENE ENDS WITH THE SHIP ACCELERATING AWAY FROM YAVIN 4, I COULD THEN CUT TO THE CLOSE-UP OF JYN WAKING UP SUDDENLY AS THE SHIP APPROACHES JHEDDA

(ALTERNATIVE ORDER POSSIBILITY?) - 1. 2. 5.(main title here) 6. 7. 8. 9. 3. 4. 10. 11. - NOTE: Does Bhodi’s first appearance make sense in this order? Or must he be shown BEFORE Jyn’s breakout scene, due to Bhodi being known about already? Check this. Would I want to EXCLUDE Bhodi scene or not??)

(OR ALTERNATIVELY THIS ORDER PERHAPS?) - 1. 2. 3. 4. 6. 7. 5.(main title here) 8. 9. 10. 11.

(OR EVEN THIS ORDER PERHAPS?) - 1. 2. 3. 4. 6. 7. 8. 9. 5.(main title here) 10. 11.

(OR MIGHT EVEN TRY THIS ORDER?) - 1. 2. 6. 7. 5.(main title here) 3. 4.

(OR PERHAPS THIS ORDER EVEN?) - 1. 2. 3. 4. 14. 15. 6. 7. 5.(main title here) 8. 9. 10. 11. (or pehaps try putting 5. inbetween 9. & 10. in this sequence instead?) - this one has Tarkin talking about Bhodi, right after we first see him.

OR ALTERNATIVELY…

GO INTO WHY I’M NOT KEEN ON THE LACK OF FOX LOGO AND FANFARE TO KICK THINGS OFF, AND MIGHT SHOW THIS CARTOON IMAGE (should I also show the cartoony font saying ‘A Long Time Ago…etc.’ along with it, or not??) -

Mention this link about the 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare in my final description - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/why-disney-should-add-foxs-fanfare-back-star-wars-1067900

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/why-disney-should-add-foxs-fanfare-back-star-wars-1067900

START OFF with the familiar 20th Century Fox/Lucasfilm logos and fanfare of previous Star Wars movies -

CUT to the Jedha Imperial-occupied moon for my NEW OPENING, as the ‘defector pilot’ Bhodi is taken to meet Saw’s gang -

Scene ends on ‘pull-back’ of ‘jedi rocks’ -

TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL to Wobani Imperial Prison Planet and Jyn’s rescue from a transport vehicle -

(REMOVE close-up shots of Jyn ‘suddenly sitting upright’ and ‘the sleeping alien’) NOTE - “Somebody wake up Hicks!”

Scene ends on Jyn being thrown on ground by droid -

TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL to Yavin 4 and Jyn’s interrogation by rebels -

(NOTE - we are given a full introduction to Cassian Andor and Jyn Erso during this, and also given full details concerning Saw Gerrera, Galen Erso, and the defector)

End of Jyn getting interrogated -

CUT to close-up of Saw approaching Bhodi to question him -

(NOTE - I MIGHT end up putting the zoom-in on Saw’s hide-out first, if the audio blends in okay)

Bhodi is taken away when Saw orders “Bor Gullet!” to his gang (NOTE - I definately WON’T be including the CGI creature however!) -

TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL to a tie-fighter, as Krenick and Tarkin discuss the ‘defector pilot’ aboard a stardestroyer near the death star -

Scene ends on Tarkin looking out at the death star -

CUT to Jyn and Cassian about to leave rebel base -

Scene ends on ship flying away from Yavin 4 -

CUT to close-up of Jyn suddenly awakening as ship approaches Jedha -

(NOTE - I’m discarding the ‘flashback dream’ footage which normally comes before this)

NOTE - Just in case anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime, I’ve just temporarily used this space to put the following edit ideas/shots on here to remind myself about them at some point! 😃 -

My THE LAST JEDI restructure ideas - DO ‘STREAMABLE’ CLIPS OF SOME OF THESE TOO.

MENTION INSPIRED BY TMBTM AND ORIGINALLY WANTED EXTENDED VERSIONS OF PREQUELS, AND VERY KEEN ON MUSIC MATCHING UP WELL.

SAY I REALLY WANTED TO HEAR LUKE’S VOICE WHEN WE SAW HIM, EVEN IF HE SAID ONLY ONE WORD!

Seeing as I want to totally DO AWAY with REY FINDING LUKE DRESSED AS A JEDI at the end of THE FORCE AWAKENS, I’m going to re-edit that movie so that it ENDS on the shot of the Falcon going to lightspeed, as Rey and Chewie BEGIN to look for him instead! - and therefore I’m going to ADD the conclusion of Rey’s journey to Luke’s island IMMEDIATELY AFTER Finn asks Poe “Where’s Rey?” during THE LAST JEDI instead! (NOTE - I want to keep Luke dressed in his black robes right up until he’s decided to re-engage with ‘the Force’, so that we only see him wearing his symbolic Jedi robes when he’s doing his ‘astral projection’ trick. And delaying seeing Rey approach Luke’s island until THE LAST JEDI will give a better impression of it taking longer to find him! - HOWEVER, I MIGHT decide to incorporate a re-edited version of the Luke and Yoda scene which has Luke dressed in his Jedi robes earlier, as there’s a way I can improve on it for myself if need be) -

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

7th POST

Okay, onto THE LAST JEDI now…

There’s a WHOLE HEAP of changes and stuff I’d prefer to get rid of throughout this movie someday…so just as J.J. rounds the SEQUEL trilogy off with THE RISE OF SKYWALKER finale, I’ll now describe the BIGGEST alteration I’d prefer to make to THE LAST JEDI for myself…to show how I’d keep Luke dressed in his darker robes THROUGHOUT, and ONLY reveal him wearing his lighter ‘Jedi robes’ near the end of the movie, when he eventually saves the day…WITHOUT him being ‘momentarily tempted’ to kill his nephew, NOR being evasive about it to Rey in any way!

To do this, I’d split up ‘the search for Luke’ differently during the first two movies…and START OFF by ending THE FORCE AWAKENS with Rey and Chewie just BEGINNING to look for him, in the same kind of way that DigModiFicaTion did for his ‘Heir To The Force’ edit. -

…Rey and Chewie prepare to take off -

…as Leia and the rebels watch them leave -

…and the Falcon jumps to lightspeed -

…as Rey and Chewie’s search for Luke BEGINS -

NOTE - I’d prefer to totally discard the original ending of this movie where Rey travelled to the island and found Luke…because he was already dressed in his ‘Jedi robes’ at that point for one thing, which is one of the things I want to eliminate in this entire restructure…and because I found it frustrating that we didn’t get ONE SINGLE WORD out of Luke before the end credits kicked in, as I yearned to hear his voice! So as great as it was to see him again after all those years, I’m content to lose that footage for an ALTERNATIVE introduction to his character at a later point in the SEQUEL trilogy instead.

HOWEVER - I’d include Rey’s journey to ‘Ahch-to’ and some of her initial climb up the island in a restructured version of THE LAST JEDI for myself, to make it look as if her journey to find Luke took LONGER.

…and we FINISH on a circular ‘iris’ wipe to the end credits music…

…and then THE LAST JEDI begins in the usual way -

…and the movie CONTINUES ON until we eventually get to the point where Finn has recovered, as Poe goes over to assist him…and Finn eventually asks "WHERE’S REY?"

…and then we continue on as normal, as dawn breaks on an island which comes into view -

NOTE - At this point, I’d prefer to use the footage from THE FORCE AWAKENS to make it look as if Rey’s journey to ‘Ahch-to’ took LONGER…but rather than join the footage of Rey and Chewie travelling in hyperspace to immediately after the shot of Finn and Poe, I’d prefer to KEEP the atmospheric island shot and music cue which appears at this point above…which would work for me as a kind of precursor of where Rey is headed, before we see it’s location more fully when the Falcon eventually reaches the planet, and heads towards it. -

…and then we CUT* to THE FORCE AWAKENS footage of Rey and Chewie in hyperspace as Rey stares ahead expectantly -

…as the Falcon drops out of hyperspace to reveal the watery planet ‘Ahch-to’ -

…and the Falcon dives down towards the island -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey looks back at Chewie and Artoo beside the Falcon -

NOTE - Although the Falcon landing place shots are mismatched between THE FORCE AWAKENS and THE LAST JEDI, I’d prefer to KEEP the shot above to retain the flow of the music at this point, and just ignore the difference by the time we see the Falcon again later on. If it bothered me that much, I would just cut directly to the close-up of Rey below as she begins to climb the island instead, immediately after we see the Falcon reach the island.

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey begins to climb up the island -

…and we end on this shot from THE FORCE AWAKENS -

…and then we CUT* to this shot from THE LAST JEDI, as the music rises and we see a stone settlement -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey enters a deserted courtyard surrounded by several stone dwellings -

…where she suddenly hears a scraping sound and looks round -

…and we see a door close shut on a stone dwelling -

…as Rey approaches the door -

…and says “MASTER SKYWALKER?..I’M FROM THE RESISTANCE…YOUR SISTER LEIA SENT ME…” -

…and continues to say “…WE NEED YOUR HELP” -

…as she knocks the door with her staff when there’s no response -

…and then says “HELLO?..” as she looks around -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see a porg squawking -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the next shot of the porgs checking out the lightsaber which appears at this point - CLICK HERE , as well as the shot of Rey picking it up which comes just after - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Rey contemplating Luke’s lightsaber as she sits near a cliff edge -

…and she sees Luke’s X-wing submerged in the sea, and thinks about her next move -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see some random items inside the dwelling -

…and we hear a ‘knock, knock’ sound as we see hands on a folded ‘Jedi robe’ -

…and then we hear another ‘knock knock’ sound as we finally get our FIRST introduction to Luke Skywalker…who responds “GO AWAY!” -

…as his door suddenly gets smashed in, and Luke turns around -

…as Chewie enters roaring, followed by Rey -

…and Luke says “CHEWIE…WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!” -

…as Chewie grunts and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the next shot of Rey saying “HE SAYS YOU’RE COMING BACK WITH US!” which appears at this point, as I’d rather continue Luke and Chewie’s interaction a little, WITHOUT Rey translating.

…and then we CUT* to Luke asking “HOW DID YOU FIND ME?” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey says “LONG STORY, WE’LL TELL YOU ON THE FALCON” -

…and Luke looks at Rey saying “FALCON?..” -

…as Chewie sighs despondently -

…and Rey looks saddened, as Luke says “WAIT…” -

…and he continues to say "…WHERE’S HAN?.."

…and then we continue on as normal, as the first scene featuring Kylo Ren begins -

…and then the movie CONTINUES ON as Luke proves difficult, and Rey fails to convince him to help out several times…until we eventually reach the point where Luke reluctantly agrees to give Rey three lessons, telling her that he WILL teach her the ways of the ‘Jedi’, and why they need to end…and after his FIRST lesson with Rey (where he frustratedly walked off on her because she was easily tempted towards a ‘dark place’, and we discovered that Luke had ‘closed himself off from the Force’) , we later reach a point in the movie where Luke is willing to resume with his SECOND lesson with her…

…as Rey follows him to the top of the island and Luke says "LESSON TWO…"

…as he continues to say "…NOW THAT THEY’RE EXTINCT, THE ‘JEDI’ ARE ROMANTICISED, DEIFIED…IF YOU STRIP AWAY THE MYTH AND LOOK AT THEIR DEEDS…THE LEGACY OF THE ‘JEDI’ IS FAILURE, HYPOCRISY, HUBRIS…"

…and Rey walks towards him saying "THAT’S NOT TRUE!"

…as Luke continues to say "…AT THE HEIGHT OF THEIR POWERS THEY ALLOWED DARTH SIDIOUS TO RISE, CREATE THE EMPIRE, AND WIPE THEM OUT…IT WAS A ‘JEDI MASTER’ WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRAINING AND CREATION OF DARTH VADER…"

…and Rey says “…AND A ‘JEDI’ WHO SAVED HIM…”, as she sits down beside Luke and continues to say "…YES, THE MOST HATED MAN IN THE GALAXY, BUT YOU SAW THERE WAS CONFLICT INSIDE HIM…YOU BELIEVED THAT HE WASN’T GONE, THAT HE COULD BE TURNED!"

…as Luke responds "…AND I BECAME A LEGEND…FOR MANY YEARS THERE WAS BALANCE, AND THEN I SAW…‘BEN’…MY NEPHEW…WITH THAT MIGHTY ‘SKYWALKER’ BLOOD…IN MY HUBRIS I THOUGHT I COULD TRAIN HIM, I COULD…PASS ON MY STRENGTHS…‘HAN’ WAS…‘HAN’ ABOUT IT, BUT…LEIA…TRUSTED ME WITH HER SON…I TOOK HIM…AND A DOZEN STUDENTS…AND BEGAN A TRAINING TEMPLE…"

…as he stands up and walks away a little, and continues to say "…BY THE TIME I REALISED I WAS NO MATCH FOR THE DARKNESS RISING IN HIM…"

…and he continues to say "…IT WAS TOO LATE…"

…as Rey quietly asks “WHAT HAPPENED?..” and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to a ‘flashback’ of Kylo asleep, as we hear Luke say “I SENSED IT BUILDING IN HIM…” -

…and his voice continues to say "…I’D SEEN IT IN MOMENTS DURING HIS TRAINING…BUT THEN I LOOKED INSIDE…"

…as his voice continues to say "…AND IT WAS BEYOND WHAT I EVER IMAGINED…"

…and we hear the sound of lightsabers and anguished cries, as Luke quickly pulls his hand back in shock, and his voice continues to say "…SNOKE HAD ALREADY TURNED HIS HEART!.."

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the exterior shot of the training temple, as Luke’s voice continues to say “…I WENT TO CONFRONT HIM…AND HE TURNED ON ME…” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Luke yells “…BEN…NO!..” and Kylo uses the ‘Force’ to bring the building crashing down on top of him -

…and in the blackness, we hear Luke’s voice say “HE MUST HAVE THOUGHT I WAS DEAD…” -

…as we see Luke’s metal hand rises out of the burning rubble, and his voice continues to say “…WHEN I CAME TO…” -

…as Luke staggers to kneel beside Artoo in front of a scene of devastation and dead bodies, as his voice continues to say “…THE TEMPLE WAS BURNING…HE HAD VANISHED WITH A HANDFUL OF MY STUDENTS…AND SLAUGHTERED THE REST…LEIA BLAMED SNOKE…BUT…IT WAS ME…I FAILED…” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we revert back to Luke ruefully continuing to tell Rey “…BECAUSE I WAS LUKE SKYWALKER…JEDI MASTER…” -

…and he continues to say "…A LEGEND…"

NOTE - So that’s the SINGLE version of the ‘flashback’ I’d prefer to see Luke relay to Rey at this point, which tells the whole truth from the start, without any evasiveness on Luke’s part…as I’d much rather that he DIDN’T contemplate killing his nephew with his lightsaber there-and-then as he slept…even for a ‘moment’, thanks!

…as Rey says “THE GALAXY MAY NEED A LEGEND…I NEED SOMEONE…TO SHOW ME MY PLACE IN ALL THIS…” -

…and Luke listens silently -

…as Rey stands up saying “…AND YOU DIDN’T FAIL KYLO…” -

…and she continues to say "…KYLO FAILED YOU…I WON’T!"

…as Luke continues to listen silently -

…and we return to Rey once again -

…and then at this point, I’d definately prefer to continue on with the DELETED ‘Third Lesson/Caretaker Village’ sequence, but with a couple of alterations which I’ll come to shortly. Here’s the best clip I could find of it for the sake of showing it -

Third Lesson/Caretaker Village clip - CLICK HERE

NOTE - I really like this scene a LOT overall, and would absolutely want it in my version of the movie…as I want Rey’s final words in it to be the catalyst which finally brings Luke around…NOT Yoda’s intervention, which I’m discarding anyway…because I don’t want Luke to be wearing his ‘Jedi robes’ at that point yet…but also because I really dislike the fact that Yoda’s ‘Forceghost’ had the ability to powerfully control a lightning bolt in the ‘living’ world to destroy the tree!

So here’s the ALTERATIONS I’d like to make to the Third Lesson/Caretaker Village scene -

1. I’d discard the unfinished shot of Rey running on the beach in the distance…and would join the end of the footage where she’s running with Luke’s blue lightsaber in close-up, directly to where she starts to run up stone steps towards the entrance instead, which should work fine enough in motion for me.

2. I happen to really like the look of the Caretaker Village set where Rey and Luke talk, but I’d discard the unfinished shot where Rey walks away from him, as the sea etc. doesn’t match the earlier view…and would join from the end of where Rey has turned her back to leave after exasperatedly telling him “I UNDERSTAND THAT ACROSS THE GALAXY OUR REAL FRIENDS ARE REALLY DYING!..THAT OLD LEGEND OF LUKE SKYWALKER THAT YOU HATE SO MUCH, I BELIEVED IN IT!..I WAS WRONG!”, directly to the final close-up of Luke’s face instead.

It’s at this point that I’d prefer to have Rey give up trying to convince Luke to leave the island with her, as she’s totally disillusioned with him now…WITHOUT any further lying ‘relevations’ from Kylo, or ‘hand-touching’ with Kylo, or confrontation with Luke, all of which I’d prefer to discard.

…and then we CUT* back to green laserbolts being fired, as we CONTINUE ON with the ‘space chase’ at the same point as it appears in the the existing movie -

…and then we continue on as normal from here, as Hux destroys the rebel’s helpless medical frigate…and we eventually conclude the ‘Canto Bight mission’, as we see several fathiers look up at the night sky as the 'codebreaker’s stolen ship flies off to safety -

NOTE - Yes, I’d include a lot of the Canto Bight ‘side-mission’, as I want to show how the friendship that builds between Rose and Finn started off…as I’m guessing it’s likely to be expanded upon a lot more in THE RISE OF SKYWALKER anyway…but I’ve got a shortened, heavily-tweaked version of it in mind, which I’ll eventually cover here sometime too.

…and then we continue on as normal, as the scene ‘transition wipes’ to the island at night -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Luke would normally come out of the shadows to rejoin with the ‘Force’ at this point in the existing movie…but I’d prefer to DELAY that moment until a bit later for myself.

…and then we CUT* to a very disillusioned Rey walking away, until she suddenly stops -

…and we end on this shot -

I’m discarding the entire scene of Rey getting into a ‘Force-connection’ conversation with Kylo which appears at this point, so that means two things thankfully…it means I can get rid of ‘topless Kylo’ being told by Rey to cover himself up - CLICK HERE …and also means I can get rid of the image of ‘scary Luke’ attacking him for no reason in his lying version of the ‘flashback’ too - CLICK HERE

This next cut is one of my favourites…because if I ever have to watch those particular scenes again, it will be too soon!

…and then we CUT* to a tearful Rey deciding to TURN AROUND and head off in another direction -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey approaches the ‘dark place’ she felt in her unsuccessful first lesson with Luke -

…and she jumps down towards the ominous hole -

…as she walks to the edge of it, and kneels down to look inside -

…as she looks closer into the hole -

…and is suddenly sucked into it -

…as she plunges into the water below -

…and then scambles ashore in the cavern -

…as she finds herself facing a mirrored surface, and walks towards it to see several duplicates of herself -

…as she touches her reflection -

…and finds herself on the other side of it -

…as she turns to see the illusion of many duplicates of herself stretching into the distance -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I like this variation of when Luke went into the ‘dark place’ on Dagobah in RETURN OF THE JEDI, as it comes across as quite creepy overall…but I’d prefer that it didn’t go on for SO LONG…so I’d discard the shots of Rey twisting her hand around which appear at this point…as well as all the finger-snapping shots and speeded-up multiple shots of her too, which I’m not keen on either…which means that I can also get rid of Rey’s voice (in another ‘Force-talk’ with Kylo it turned out) saying “I SHOULD HAVE FELT TRAPPED OR PANICKED…BUT I DIDN’T…IT DIDN’T GO ON FOREVER, I KNEW IT WAS LEADING SOMEWHERE…THAT AT THE END IT WOULD SHOW WHAT I CAME TO SEE…”, seeing as I don’t want her to be ‘Force-talking’ to Kylo at this point in the movie.

…and then we CUT* to Rey clenching her fist -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey approaches the mirrored surface again -

…and reaches out to touch it -

…as she whispers "LET ME SEE THEM…"

…and she continues to whisper "…MY PARENTS…"

…as she continues to whisper "PLEASE…"

…and two shadows appear in the mirror, while Rey watches intently-

…as the two shadows approach and meld into one -

…as the shadow turns out to be a reflection of Rey -

…and she drops to her knees in deep disappointment -

…as she says "I THOUGHT I’D FIND ANSWERS HERE…I WAS WRONG…"

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the entire scene of Rey ‘Force-talking’ to Kylo and touching hands as Luke interrupts which appears at this point - CLICK HERE , and I’d ALSO get rid of the entire scene where she confronts Luke just afterwards - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to the Falcon taking off as Rey decides to leave the island, and Luke watches from afar -

…as Luke turns away -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the island comes into view -

…and we end on this shot at the point where the wind whistles and there’s a brief lull in the music cue that plays -

NOTE - I’d definately discard the entire scene of Luke meeting up with Yoda which appears at this point - CLICK HERE, as I don’t want to see Luke wearing his ‘Jedi robes’ yet…but also because I’d rather he resolved to ‘rejoin’ with the ‘Force’ and help out the rebellion on his OWN accord, with Rey as the catalyst…WITHOUT having to be prompted into it by Yoda’s musings…and ALSO because I really dislike the fact that Yoda;s ‘Forceghost’ was shown to be able to powerfully affect the ‘living’ world by controlling lightning to strike the tree!

ADDITIONALLY - I’m not going to feel bad about losing him in this, as I’m guessing that he’ll make another brief appearance of some sort in THE RISE OF SKYWALKER anyway!

…and then we CUT* to Luke appearing out of the shadows into the moonlight, as the wind whistles -

…as he finally decides to ‘rejoin’ with the ‘Force’ -

…and we see Leia’s brain activity start to fluctuate -

…as Luke continues to concentrate -

…and Leia’s ‘Force-connection’ response to him continues as she whispers "Luke…"

…and Luke’s eyes open suddenly as he whispers "Leia!.."

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the 'codebreaker’s stolen ship flying in hyperspace -

…as Rose and Finn make their way back to continue their mission -

…and the movie CONTINUES ON at this point, until we eventually reach the point where Luke has decided to get involved…as he appears as an ‘Force’-connected ‘astral projection’ of his younger self…complete with BLUE lightsaber…

…and saves the day by distracting Kylo long enough to give Leia and all the other rebels a chance to escape…

…as we see that he has FINALLY embraced his ‘inner Jedi’, and donned the ‘Jedi robes’ from his stone dwelling for this task…

…and the movie CONTINUES ON from here, as the rebels find a way out of the Crait base, and the exertion of Luke’s ‘astral projection’ ends up killing him…as he becomes ‘one with the Force’…

So Luke unfortunately ‘passes on’ thanks to Kylo…and I’m intending to describe the way I’d prefer to restructure the likes of the Crait battle and Luke’s ‘projection’ encounter with Kylo leading right up to his death, when I have more time another day…but in the meantime, I’ll finish this off by showing how I’d prefer to redo the VERY END of the movie for myself someday. -

…Luke becomes ‘one with the Force’, as his cloak drifts away -

…and the sun sets on Luke’s island -

…as Kylo and his troops appear, and search the rebel base -

…as Kylo kneels down in the rebel control room when he sees something -

…and then looks up when his ‘Force-connection’ to Rey suddenly begins to re-establish -

…as Rey looks back silently, and closes the door of the Falcon -

…as Kylo sees his father’s ‘dice’ disappear -

…and we ‘transition wipe’ to the Falcon escaping -

…as it jumps to hyperspace and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the hijinks of everyone hugging each other at this point…especially the moment where Poe seems to introduce himself to Rey for the first time, despite having been in her company in the rebel base near the end of THE FORCE AWAKENS…so that there’s a more suitably sombre mood inside the Falcon at this point overall, before the hopeful ‘group’ shot appears to cheer things up!

…and then we CUT* to Finn rummaging about -

…as he finds a blanket to put over Rose, and Rey looks on -

…as Leia sits down beside Rey -

…and Rey says “LUKE IS GONE…”*

…as she continues to say “…I FELT IT…BUT IT WASN’T SADNESS OR PAIN, IT WAS…PEACE AND PURPOSE…”, and Leia replies “I FELT IT TOO…”, as Rey asks her “HOW DO WE BUILD A REBELLION FROM THIS?..”, and Leia puts her hand on Rey’s, and says “WE HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEED…” -

…as Rey gives a little smile at her reassurance -

…and we get the hopeful ‘group’ shot to cheer us up -

…as we end the movie on the Falcon flying in hyperspace -

NOTE - I’m fine with ending this instalment on the Falcon too, as I definitely don’t want to end things on the ‘broom boy’ scene…because that whole sequence feels more like a full stop to the story, instead of a continuation at this point…and I’d prefer to end things with the regular characters, rather than some random kids.

…and we finish on a circular ‘iris’ wipe to the end credits music…

So that’s that then.

I’ve somehow managed to avoid the majority of trailers and spoilers for THE RISE OF SKYWALKER so far, and will be going to see it over the weekend with a couple of family members. But at this point, I’m interested to find out several things -

1. Will Kylo be ‘turned’ to the ‘light side’, and be ‘redeemed’ by the end of the movie? - I hope not, as he’ll certainly get no forgiveness from me for killing off his old dad in the first SEQUEL instalment, and being the cause of Luke’s death in the second instalment too!

2. Will ‘Forceghosts’ continue to wield amazing power that can affect the ‘living’ world at will? - I hope not, or Yoda might as well just zap Kylo with an electric bolt from the heavens whenever it suits him.

3. Will Leia be integrated in a manner which pleases her fans? - I really hope so.

4. Will Luke get a better deal as a ‘Forceghost’ than he did in this movie? - Again, I really hope so.

5. Will we see a heap of ‘Forceghosts’ turn up for a final ‘group shot’ ending? - Good grief, I hope not.

6. Will I feel the urge to overhaul a heap of moments throughout this final instalment too - Probably, and I’m certainly expecting to!

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all, and NEXT UP I’ll go into my proposed NEW OPENING for SOLO sometime in the new year… 😃

THEN FADE TO IRIS AND CREDITS (NOTE - I MIGHT cut from Falcon to close-up of 'broom boy’s legs as he brushes courtyard, then looks up at streaking ship, as we see his ‘rebellion symbol’ ring, and see him watching the stars BEFORE I ‘wipe’ to ‘iris’! - as this would get rid of all the other annoying kids and monster, as well as the shot of him ‘Force grabbing’ the broom! It would also make for a different ending, seeing as I’m already planning on ending THE FORCE AWAKENS with the Falcon flying off…although this time it would actually be seen in ‘hyperspace’ mode) -

FINAL SHOT BEFORE ‘WIPE’ TO ‘IRIS’ (although I MIGHT decide to REMOVE the ‘streaking ship’ shot in my version of the scene, as it kinda gives the impression that he’s looking at the Falcon taking off, when it’s ALREADY in motion, and he WOULDN’T be able to see it anyway!) -

*** possible change of plan! *** - I MIGHT decide to split the Luke vs Kylo fight into THREE sections instead!

???

AND THEN FINISH OFF WITH REST OF SHOTS AS WE EVENTUALLY SEE OUR FIRST INTRODUCTION OF LUKE SAYING “GO AWAY!” AS CHEWIE AND REY BREAK THE DOOR DOWN.

llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

DON’T have Rey having the conversation with ‘topless’ Kylo!..DON’T have Rey ‘touching’ hands with Kylo!..DON’T have Rey fighting with Luke and telling him she thinks he can be ‘turned back’ to the light side! - I might do something like this instead - once Rey walks away from Luke totally disillusioned by him…CUT to ('island shot first??) Rey walking in dark, then stopping…CUT to Rey turning, then walking back towards ‘dark hole’ which she enters…CUT OUT some of the ‘finger snapping’ etc., and shorten the overall scene (should I end it with Rey saying “I thought I’d find answers here, I was wrong” or not?)…CUT to Falcon flying away as Luke watches it leaving, then turns away… NOTE - AT THIS POINT (OR JUST AFTER THE “…I was wrong” POINT??), SHOULD I CUT TO SOME OTHER SCENE GOING ON ELSEWHERE, TO BREAK THIS UP A LITTLE BEFORE COMING BACK TO LUKE?? …CUT to ‘island’, as we then see scene of Luke emerging from cave in moonlight having finally decided to ‘rejoin’ the ‘Force’, as he ‘sees’ his sister Leia on a hospital bed…CUT to Luke gasping “Leia!” (I’m still undecided on whether to include Leia whispering “Luke” or not) - the next time we see Luke will be as a ‘Force’-induced astral projection meeting Leia, so DON’T include Yoda scene where Luke intends to burn down the JEDI tree! - Rey proved to be the catalyst for Luke ‘rejoining’ with the ‘Force’, so no sudden urge to burn down a treestump and some old (unread!) books needed!! (I also don’t like ‘Forceghost Yoda’ being able to physically influence ‘real world’ lightning, and would rather that Luke comes around to helping Leia out without Yoda’s persuasion) - ALSO, explain WHY I’m discarding the entire ‘Yoda and Luke’ sequence - don’t like look of Yoda ‘Forceghost’ in certain shots/don’t like Yoda’s ‘Forceghost’ being able to directly influence ‘realworld’ (the lightning strike on Jedi tree)/don’t like Luke being bothered about loss of Jedi texts, considering he wanted to burn them just minutes earlier/don’t like Luke implying he DIDN’T read them when Yoda asks if he did…considering he was on the island all that time, and the fact he tells Rey what they advise when she wants to help ‘caretakers’ from attack!

**** HOW I’D LIKE TO RECUT LUKE VS KYLO FIGHT AT END OF LAST OF THE JEDI ****

Kylo is inside the cockpit of his ship, and has just ‘Force-thrown’ Hux -

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

to tell her what happened between him and Kylo in the past

/////////until the conclusion of the ‘Canto Bight’ antics** (although I’m definately including someday, I’ll show how I’d prefer to shorten and tweak all that) , and we reach the point where the fathiers look up at the night sky as the 'codebreaker’s stolen ship flies off -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we ‘wipe’ to the island at night -

NOTE - Luke would normally come out of the shadows to rejoin with the ‘Force’ at this point…but I’d prefer to DELAY that moment until a bit later for myself.

…and then we CUT* to 1st shot of portion of island which comes after Luke says Leia…on page 47

IMPORTANT NOTE - SHOULD I CARRY ON WITH THIS PORTION AFTER WE SEE LUKE SAY LEIA…, AND THEN CUT TO THE HYPERSPACE SHOT OF ROSE AND FINN RETURNING SHOT?? - WHICH WOULD AFFECT WHERE I CUT REY WALKING TO A STOP SHOT FROM TOO.

LAST SHOT -

…and then we continue on with Rey walking in disillusioned tears until she suddenly stops -

1ST SHOT -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - While this comes across as a variation of when Luke went into the dark cave on Dagobah in RETURN OF THE JEDI, I quite like this ‘duplicates’ sequence overall, as it comes across as quite creepy I reckon…but I’d prefer that it didn’t go on for so long…so I’d discard the shots of Rey twisting her hand around which appear at this point, as well as all the finger-snapping shots and speeded-up multiple shots of her too, which I’m not keen on…which means that I can also get rid of Rey’s voice (talking to Kylo it turns out) saying “I SHOULD HAVE FELT TRAPPED OR PANICKED…BUT I DIDN’T…IT DIDN’T GO ON FOREVER, I KNEW IT WAS LEADING SOMEWHERE…THAT AT THE END IT WOULD SHOW WHAT I CAME TO SEE…”, seeing as I WON’T be having her talk to Kylo at this point.

AND THEN FINISH OFF WITH REST OF SHOTS AS WE EVENTUALLY SEE OUR FIRST INTRODUCTION OF LUKE SAYING “GO AWAY!” AS CHEWIE AND REY BREAK THE DOOR DOWN.

put a few other pics of Rey’s Falcon journey to Luke’s island here sometime

END OF REY’S FALCON ARRIVAL AT LUKE’S ISLAND -


DON’T have Luke being ‘tempted to kill his nephew’ with his lightsaber! - just have him telling Rey what happened using certain footage of Luke ‘reaching out’ over the sleeping Kylo, before he is seen to ‘Forcepush’ Luke through the wall, and kill some students etc… (then when the overall scene ends with Rey telling Luke that she won’t let Luke down, we’d continue straight on with the ‘deleted’ scene of the ‘Caretaker’s village’, which ends with Rey walking away from Luke totally disillusioned by him) - it wasn’t the fact that the movie made the triumphant hero of the Original Trilogy feel like a failure that bothered me…it was the fact that Luke was made to look utterly batsh*t ridiculous during Kylo’s ‘flashback’ of event - SHOW PIC OF JAKE SKYWALKER HOLDING GREEN LIGHTSABER - as well as being made to look ‘evasive’ with the truth, by not showing us the FULL version of his retelling of the events to Rey in the first place! ADDITIONALLY, I don’t need to see Luke momentarily tempted to kill his own nephew as a reason he ended up so disillusioned…as the fact that he lost Kylo and some students to the dark side in the first place, who then killed Luke’s other students, is more than enough to explain his state of mind after those events.

…and then we end on this shot - LAST SHOT OF LUKE ABOUT TO TELL REY WHAT HAPPENED WITH KYLO -

…and then we CUT* to Kylo asleep, as we hear Luke say “I SENSED IT BUILDING IN HIM…” -

…and his voice continues to say "…I’D SEEN IT IN MOMENTS DURING HIS TRAINING…BUT THEN I LOOKED INSIDE…"

…and his voice continues to say "…AND IT WAS BEYOND WHAT I EVER IMAGINED…"

…as we hear the sound of lightsabers and anguished cries, as Luke quickly pulls his hand back in shock, and his voice continues to say "…SNOKE HAD ALREADY TURNED HIS HEART!.."

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the exterior shot of the training temple, as Luke’s voice continues to say “…I WENT TO CONFRONT HIM…AND HE TURNED ON ME…” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Luke yells “…BEN…NO!..” and Kylo uses the ‘Force’ to bring the building crashing down on top of him -

…and in the blackness, we hear Luke’s voice say “HE MUST HAVE THOUGHT I WAS DEAD…” -

…as Luke’s metal hand rises out of the burning rubble, and his voice continues to say “…WHEN I CAME TO…” -

…as Luke staggers to kneel beside Artoo in front of a scene of devastation and dead bodies, as his voice continues to say “…THE TEMPLE WAS BURNING…HE HAD VANISHED WITH A HANDFUL OF MY STUDENTS…AND SLAUGHTERED THE REST…LEIA BLAMED SNOKE…BUT…IT WAS ME…I FAILED…” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we revert back to Luke ruefully continuing to tell Rey “…BECAUSE I WAS LUKE SKYWALKER…JEDI MASTER…” -

…and he continues to say "…A LEGEND…"

…as Rey says “THE GALAXY MAY NEED A LEGEND…I NEED SOMEONE…TO SHOW ME MY PLACE IN ALL THIS…” -

…and Luke stares at her silently -

…as Rey stands up saying “…AND YOU DIDN’T FAIL KYLO…” -

…and continues to say “…KYLO FAILED YOU…I WON’T!”**

…as Luke stays silent -

…and we return to Rey’s face -

**At this point I’d definately prefer to continue on with the DELETED ‘Third Lesson/Caretaker Village’ sequence, but with a couple of alterations which I’ll come to afterwards. So here’s the best clip I could find of it for the sake of showing it -

https://streamable.com/l7kox

NOTE - I really like this scene a LOT overall, and would absolutely want it in my version of the movie…as I want Rey’s final words in it to be the catalyst which finally brings him around…NOT Yoda’s intervention, which I’m discarding anyway.

And here’s the alterations I’d like to make to the scene -

1. I’d discard the unfinished shot of Rey running on the beach…and would join from when she’s running with Luke’s blue lightsaber in close-up, directly to where she starts to run up stairs towards the entrance instead, which should work fine enough in motion for me.

2. I happen to love the look of the Caretaker Village set beside the sea where Rey and Luke talk, but I’d discard the unfinished version where the sea etc. doesn’t match in the shot at the end where Rey walks away from him…and would join from where Rey has turned to leave after exasperatedly telling him “I UNDERSTAND THAT ACROSS THE GALAXY OUR REAL FRIENDS ARE REALLY DYING!..THAT OLD LEGEND OF LUKE SKYWALKER THAT YOU HATE SO MUCH, I BELIEVED IN IT!..I WAS WRONG!”, directly to the final close-up of Luke’s face instead.

…and then we CUT* back to green laserbolts being fired, as we resume the space chase at the same point as is shown in the the existing movie -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Hux destroys the rebels helpless Medical Frigate…and we eventually see a HEAVILY cut-down version of Finn and Rose escaping from Canto Bight with a codebreaker (which I’ll cover in the future sometime), and we end on this shot OF THE FATHIER BEASTS LOOKING UP AT THE SKY, AND WIPES TO ISLAND SHOT.

and then I’d have my re-edited version of Rey ‘saving’ the ‘caretakers’ - which involves REMOVING unfinished shot of her running over the beach rocks, and also REMOVING the unfinished shot of Luke watching her leave the party

DON’T have Rey having the conversation with ‘topless’ Kylo!..DON’T have Rey ‘touching’ hands with Kylo!..DON’T have Rey fighting with Luke and telling him she thinks he can be ‘turned back’ to the light side! - I might do something like this instead - once Rey walks away from Luke totally disillusioned by him…CUT to ('island shot first??) Rey walking in dark, then stopping…CUT to Rey turning, then walking back towards ‘dark hole’ which she enters…CUT OUT some of the ‘finger snapping’ etc., and shorten the overall scene (should I end it with Rey saying “I thought I’d find answers here, I was wrong” or not?)…CUT to Falcon flying away as Luke watches it leaving, then turns away… NOTE - AT THIS POINT (OR JUST AFTER THE “…I was wrong” POINT??), SHOULD I CUT TO SOME OTHER SCENE GOING ON ELSEWHERE, TO BREAK THIS UP A LITTLE BEFORE COMING BACK TO LUKE?? …CUT to ‘island’, as we then see scene of Luke emerging from cave in moonlight having finally decided to ‘rejoin’ the ‘Force’, as he ‘sees’ his sister Leia on a hospital bed…CUT to Luke gasping “Leia!” (I’m still undecided on whether to include Leia whispering “Luke” or not) - the next time we see Luke will be as a ‘Force’-induced astral projection meeting Leia, so DON’T include Yoda scene where Luke intends to burn down the JEDI tree! - Rey proved to be the catalyst for Luke ‘rejoining’ with the ‘Force’, so no sudden urge to burn down a treestump and some old (unread!) books needed!! (I also don’t like ‘Forceghost Yoda’ being able to physically influence ‘real world’ lightning, and would rather that Luke comes around to helping Leia out without Yoda’s persuasion) - ALSO, explain WHY I’m discarding the entire ‘Yoda and Luke’ sequence - don’t like look of Yoda ‘Forceghost’ in certain shots/don’t like Yoda’s ‘Forceghost’ being able to directly influence ‘realworld’ (the lightning strike on Jedi tree)/don’t like Luke being bothered about loss of Jedi texts, considering he wanted to burn them just minutes earlier/don’t like Luke implying he DIDN’T read them when Yoda asks if he did…considering he was on the island all that time, and the fact he tells Rey what they advise when she wants to help ‘caretakers’ from attack!

**** HOW I’D LIKE TO RECUT LUKE VS KYLO FIGHT AT END OF LAST OF THE JEDI ****

Kylo is inside the cockpit of his ship, and has just ‘Force-thrown’ Hux -

(I’ll be moving this next scene of ‘Finn dragging Rose back to the base’ to another spot somewhere SOONER after they crash - because I want them to be back at the base BEFORE that whole area is heavily blasted when Luke walks out!)

…CUT to Kylo’s ship landing in front of Luke -

and continue on until close-up of Luke soon after he’s switched on his lightsaber -

…CUT to Kylo in close-up, to JOIN 2nd part of fight DIRECTLY onto the first part above -

and continue on until Luke says I FAILED YOU BEN… (MISS out him then saying I’M SORRY, as well as shot of Kylo saying I’M SURE YOU ARE!)

…CUT to Poe figuring out that Luke is trying to buy them time -

and continue as Poe leads everyone to a rockfall barrier, and end with Rey standing on the other side of it (I MIGHT miss out close-up of Rey facing us - not sure yet) -

…CUT to wide shot of Kylo vs Luke (3rd part of fight), as Kylo says the resistance is dead etc. -

*and continue on as normal as Kylo tries to attack Luke/Luke tells him that the resistance is reborn etc., and that he will NOT be the last jedi/Rey lifts the rocks, and Finn runs to hug her (I MIGHT be cutting out some shots to do with the rocks/hug - not sure yet), and continue on as normal with the rest of the duel as Kylo then skewers Luke’s ‘Force-projection’…and Luke collapses on island - HERE’S HOW I THINK THE MOVIE ENDING WOULD FLOW A LOT BETTER VISUALLY AND MUSICALLY -

(NOTE - I’ve temporarily numbered these to make it easier to know where to add additional comments inbetween them describing what’s happening for myself)

47 NOTES TO SELF - is it possible to REMOVE this ‘group’ shot and just cut to the Falcon?? (the positioning of everyone is suddenly different!) SLIGHT POSSIBILITY - How would putting the ‘BROOM BOY’ end scene work here?? Would start at the point he comes out to ‘Force-grab’ the broom, and end on close-up of his face after he’s seen a ship accelerate past - so this would allow a ‘time gap’ before returning to the ‘group’ shot (where everyone is positioned differently), and allow for all the re-positioning better. Would all the music in these scenes match well??

then we end on Falcon travelling in hyperspace -

48

THEN FADE TO IRIS AND CREDITS (NOTE - I MIGHT cut from Falcon to close-up of 'broom boy’s legs as he brushes courtyard, then looks up at streaking ship, as we see his ‘rebellion symbol’ ring, and see him watching the stars BEFORE I ‘wipe’ to ‘iris’! - as this would get rid of all the other annoying kids and monster, as well as the shot of him ‘Force grabbing’ the broom! It would also make for a different ending, seeing as I’m already planning on ending THE FORCE AWAKENS with the Falcon flying off…although this time it would actually be seen in ‘hyperspace’ mode) -

FINAL SHOT BEFORE ‘WIPE’ TO ‘IRIS’ (although I MIGHT decide to REMOVE the ‘streaking ship’ shot in my version of the scene, as it kinda gives the impression that he’s looking at the Falcon taking off, when it’s ALREADY in motion, and he WOULDN’T be able to see it anyway!) -

*** possible change of plan! *** - I MIGHT decide to split the Luke vs Kylo fight into THREE sections instead!

NOTE - Just in case anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime, I’ve just temporarily used this space to put the following edit ideas/shots on here to remind myself about them at some point! 😃 -

MY NEW OPENING SEQUENCE FOR SOLO - totally DISCARD the first 25 mins. altogether to make it seem as if Han and Chewie are ALREADY buddies when the movie begins, and have only recently become involved with Beckett who is planning a ‘heist’! - I didn’t necessarily want to see an ‘origin’ backstory for how they actually met in the first place, and by getting rid of the first 25 mins. I also get rid of a LOT of other scenes and dialogue which I REALLY disliked too!

(As with the ‘standalone’ ROGUE ONE, I want to include the familiar logos and fanfare to start things off. But again, I’m NOT going to include the movie’s actual MAIN TITLE anywhere)

START OFF WITH THE USUAL 20TH CENTURY FOX/LUCASFILM LOGOS AND FANFARE -

NOTE - I NOW WANT TO BEGIN WITH HAN AND KIRA AS PARTNERS-IN-CRIME IN A MID-ADVENTURE CHASE, BEFORE KIRA GETS CAPTURED, AND HAN’S CLOSE-UP SHOUTS THAT HE’LL COME BACK FOR HER (OR MIGHT CUT/or FADE??? AT CLOSE-UP OF SNARLING DOGS JUST AFTERWARDS IF SOUNDS AND MUSIC TRANSITION TO PLANET SUNRISE SHOT OKAY) - WHERE WE NOW SEE HE HAS HOOKED UP WITH ANOTHER PARTNER-IN-CRIME, CHEWIE!

CUT TO START OF PLANET SUNRISE SHOT FOR MY NEW OPENING (comes immediately after the Han and Chewie ‘shower’ scene) -

END OF PLANET SUNRISE SHOT -

START OF SHIP FLYING THROUGH CLOUDS SHOT -

END OF SHIP FLYING THROUGH CLOUDS SHOT -

CLOSE-UP OF HAN’S FACE IS NOW OUR FIRST INTRODUCTION TO HIM -

FLYING THROUGH CLOUDS SHOT -

START OF SCENE OF CHEWIE JOINING HAN ON GANTRY IS NOW OUR FIRST INTRODUCTION TO HIM -

SCENE ENDS -

At this point add some other shots and descriptions of what Han says to Chewie (I’ll be discarding the talk of Han asking his name, and saying he’ll need a nickname!)

NOTE - Just in case anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime, I’ve just temporarily used this space to put the following edit ideas/shots on here to remind myself about them at some point! 😃 -

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

4th POST

Of all the things I hoped to alter in the PREQUEL TRILOGY, the biggest question mark for me was whether it was possible to overhaul the entire multi-strand ENDING of REVENGE OF THE SITH in a way which satisfied me…as it meant having to deal with a WHOLE HEAP OF MOMENTS that I didn’t particularly care for in the existing version.

So here’s my proposed NEW ENDING for the REVENGE OF THE SITH which I’d like to see…to conclude the PREQUEL TRILOGY’s ‘backstory/flashback’ storyline in a certain way which would feature MUCH LESS dialogue and a MUCH MORE uninterrupted flow of John Williams’ evocative soundtrack music to end things on…

…but this has ended up being the LONGEST post I’ll ever need to make on this thread, as I wanted to cover the entire last 1 hr. 6 mins. of the movie ( ! ) …so I ended up having to include a helluva lot of screenshots to get the flow of all this across properly, otherwise my changes might have been a little choppy and confusing to follow overall I reckon, so please bear with it when you have enough time…

…and as before, I’ll put an ‘asterix’ beside the word ‘CUT’ to indicate every time I’m showing a completely new cut that’s different from how things appear in the actual movie…and will use the words ‘and then we continue on as normal’ to indicate where a scene transitions into the next scene as it currently does -

WE START OFF at the point where Anakin and Obi-wan BEGIN their lightsaber duel -

…as Anakin backflips to attack Obi-wan furiously -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Yoda enters a room to confront the Emperor -

…then proceeds to knock out two red guards with the ‘Force’, before the Emperor zaps him with some ‘Force-lightning’ -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin and Obi-wan continue their duel -

…before they eventually enter the control room filled with the bodies of those that Anakin killed earlier -

…as they hit a control panel, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the cackling Emperor slowly walks towards Yoda lying on the floor, and eventually says “AT LAST, THE JEDI ARE NO MORE” -

…before Yoda gets up saying “NOT IF ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT, I HAVE” -

…and ‘Force-pushes’ him backwards through the air across the room, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the shot of the Emperor knocking over the chair, as I’d like to keep him as menacing as possible throughout the PREQUEL TRILOGY…and this just makes him look silly! 😃 - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Yoda saying “AT AN END YOUR RULE IS…” -

…as the Emperor gets up -

…and Yoda says “…AND NOT SHORT ENOUGH IT WAS” -

…as the Emperor starts to move forwards -

…and leaps towards the doorway -

NOTE - Another reason why I’d discard the shot of the Emperor falling over his chair is because…the chair is suddenly UPRIGHT again during this shot! Perhaps the Emperor quickly ‘Force’-manoeuvred’ it back into position ‘offscreen’ before he jumped towards Yoda, who knows? 😉 - CLICK HERE

…as Yoda jumps in his way to stop him leaving -

…and they begin duelling near a central platform -

…as the Emperor snarls, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the entire sequence which appears at this point, where Anakin chokes Obi-wan as they continue to duel on top of a long table in an adjoining room…because I’m just not keen on it personally - CLICK HERE

Additionally, I’d ALSO discard the majority of their later follow-up duelling sequence too - CLICK HERE …to get rid of all the ‘twirly-whirly’ lightsaber action / mutual ‘Force-pushing’ / and Anakin’s silly-looking ‘leap across the hologram table’ antics before a control panel is struck…as luckily for my purposes, a control panel had also been struck in the final shot of their EARLIER sequence together too, so it’s possible to continue the duel here in a way I much prefer.

…and then we CUT* to a close-up of a monitor showing the large structure’s ‘protective shield’ starting to shut down -

…while an ominous-sounding alarm goes off -

…as Anakin and Obi-wan continue their duel out a doorway -

…before Anakin kicks Obi-wan backwards and strides determinedly towards him, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda and the Emperor continuing their duel, as the central platform begins to rise up through the room’s opening ceiling -

…and continues to rise up -

…and continues to rise up even more -

…as Yoda and the Emperor continue to duel furiously -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the close-up of the somewhat silly look on the Emperor’s face at this point - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to this close-up of Yoda -

…while the duel continues on -

…as the Emperor snarls, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan jumping backwards onto a long pipe -

…as Anakin follows him, and they duel precariously along the pipe -

…as Obi-wan jumps down onto the structure below, followed by Anakin, where they continue their duel -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda leaping down onto a circular platform -

…as his duel with the Emperor continues inside the Senate building, where the Emperor ‘Force-throws’ large circular platforms at Yoda who sends one back at him, before the Emperor jumps down and attacks Yoda with his ‘Force-lightning’ -

…as ‘Force-lightning’ reflects in Yoda’s eyes, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d also discard the close-up of the somewhat silly look on the Emperor’s face at this point too! - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Yoda and the Emperor both ‘Force-pushing’ each other back -

…as the Emperor manages to hold onto the circlular platform, but Yoda ends up falling near an access tube far below -

…as Yoda’s cloak ends up floating down before getting caught on some wreckage, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Anakin and Obi-wan continuing their duel along a huge extending structure, before it breaks off due to a lava burst -

…as the huge structure drifts off slowly on the lava flow, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda crawling inside an access tube -

…as he talks into a communicator and says “HURRY, CAREFUL TIMING WE WILL NEED”, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Senator Bail replies “ACTIVATE YOUR HOMING BEACON WHEN YOU’RE READY” -

…as he flies through the Coruscant traffic, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda emerging out of the access tube, as he flips a handle to open a hatch, and he jumps down into Bail’s hovering transport below him -

…as Bail flies off, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard Yoda saying “INTO EXILE, I MUST GO” at this point…as I’d prefer for him to only decide to do that when he says “UNTIL THE TIME IS RIGHT, DISAPPEAR WE WILL” in his later discussion with Bail and Obi-wan about the twins.

…and then we CUT* to Yoda saying “FAILED I HAVE” -

…as Bail veers round and flies away to safety -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to a trooper on a circular platform saying “THERE’S NO SIGN OF THE BODY SIR” -

…as the Emperor tells him to double his search, and orders that his shuttle be prepared for immediate take-off, as he eventually says “I SENSE LORD VADER IS IN DANGER”, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the huge structure drifting along on the lava flow, as Anakin and Obi-wan continue their duel -

…before Obi-wan sees the danger ahead -

NOTE - So now we come to one of the sequences I wanted to change the MOST for this ending…where the Anakin/Obi-wan duel ended up being an overly-excessive mess for me here too, as they jumped onto small ‘Force’-controlled platforms, and continued their duel by ‘lava surfing’ in the opposite direction of the lava flow. Although I’ve ended up having to lose a large chunk of John Williams’ epic choral score for the sake of this alteration, I’m content to settle for the portion of it that is heard in the lead-up to this point…and while I’ve had to COMPROMISE a little with how things look and sound in this amended scenario overall, I’d far rather see it play out like this instead.

…and we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan leaps off from the side the huge structure -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the close-up of Anakin immediately preparing to follow him -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan somersaulting down to safety -

…as he lands on firm ground, then turns around -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard Obi-wan’s initial sideways movement from this shot, so that it looks more like he’s somersaulted DOWNWARDS from the huge structure instead - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Anakin leaping off the huge structure towards Obi-wan -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan looking up as we hear Anakin’s angry yell -

…as Anakin somersaults downwards towards him, and Obi-wan finally strikes him down -

…and we continue on as normal, as Anakin slides down the slope close to the edge of the lava flow -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan looks down -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’m content NOT to see the huge structure go over the edge of the lavafall during this new sequence, as it’s just an unimportant aspect which happens ‘offscreen’ in this proposal instead…and including any of it would just get in the way of the flow of the shocking outcome which just happened, as we are focused on the dramatic conclusion of the Anakin/Obi-wan personal tragedy now.

Additionally, I’d also discard this shot of Anakin which appears at this point, as it always seems to me as if he’s a bit further away from the edge of the lava than where he slid down to before - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan turning his lightsaber off -

…as he looks down at Anakin, and we end on this shot -

…and we continue on as normal, as Anakin glares up at him -

…and we end on this shot -

…and we continue on as normal, as an anguished Obi-wan shouts “YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!..” -

…before saying “…IT WAS SAID YOU WOULD DESTROY THE SITH, NOT JOIN THEM!..”, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin struggles on the ground while Obi-wan’s voice continues “…BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE…”* -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan says “…NOT LEAVE IT IN DARKNESS!” -

…before starting to turn, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d originally intended to try and remove all references to ‘THE CHOSEN ONE’ in the PREQUELS, but I’m now content to go along with that notion…so long as I get rid of Shmi’s talk of giving birth to Anakin WITHOUT a father in THE PHANTOM MENACE! Also, I particularly like Obi-wan’s dialogue about it in the scene above, and there’s a chance that ‘THE CHOSEN ONE’ aspect might carry through into THE RISE OF SKYWALKER too, so there’s that as well.

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin groans in pain, and Obi-wan walks up to retrieve Anakin’s lightsaber -

…before turning around to look down, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the first half of the shot which appears at this point, where Anakin screams “I HATE YOU!”…as it just comes across as silly and petulant to me - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Anakin struggling on the ground -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Obi-wan saying “YOU WERE MY BROTHER ANAKIN, I LOVED YOU” which appears at this point, as I’d prefer to end on his anguished words earlier - CLICK HERE

Additionally, I’d also get rid of this shot of Anakin struggling which then appears at this point, as I’d prefer to end on the slightly longer shot of him struggling above - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Anakin’s legs, as his clothing catches fire -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan looks down at Anakin screaming in agony -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Anakin screaming in agony which appears at this point, as I’m just not keen on it personally, and there’s plenty of screaming in agony to go around as it is! - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan turning his gaze away -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin screams in agony as the fire spreads over him -

…then totally engulfs him, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin burns and screams -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan turns to look again -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as a badly burned Anakin screams in agony -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan starts to walk away -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin screams in agony as Obi-wan leaves -

…and we end on this shot -

At this point, here’s a few individual snippets to give a decent idea of how this would all look and sound overall, if you play them one after another. It 'aint perfect, but I’ll take it over the ‘lava surfing’ antics -

1st Part - CLICK HERE - (Duel before the lavafall, then Obi-wan leaps off the huge structure)

2nd Part - CLICK HERE - (Anakin prepares to follow immediately)

3rd Part - CLICK HERE - (Obi-wan somersaults down and lands, then turns around)

4th Part - CLICK HERE - (Anakin leaps off the huge structure towards Obi-wan)

5th Part - CLICK HERE - (Anakin yells as he somersaults downwards, as Obi-wan strikes him down, and he slips down the slope)

6th Part - CLICK HERE - (Obi-wan switches off his lightsaber, as he shouts at Anakin, then picks up Anakin’s lightsaber)

7th Part - CLICK HERE - (Anakin struggles on the ground)

8th Part - CLICK HERE - (Anakin’s legs catch fire)

9th Part - CLICK HERE - (Obi-wan looks away as fire engulfs Anakin, and Obi-leaves)

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan emerges towards R2D2, and C3PO informs him that he has Padme aboard the ship -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Padme lies unconscious, and Obi-wan gently places his hand on her shoulder -

and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the shot of Padme opening her eyes, and saying “OBI-WAN…IS ANAKIN ALRIGHT?” which appears at this point - CLICK HERE …as I’d prefer to end her dialogue at the point Anakin ‘Force-choked’ her earlier.

Additionaly, I’d ALSO discard Obi-wan gently touching Padme’s cheek with the back of his hand, as well as the shot of him looking down at her which appears just afterwards too - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan taking his hand off Padme’s shoulder and walking away -

…as R2D2 whistles sadly, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Padme’s ship takes off -

…and flies away from Mustafar, as we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as C3PO pilots the ship, and Obi-wan looks very troubled -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as a metal hand slowly pulls on the ground -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d REMOVE this shot of Anakin slowly crawling up the slope which appears at this point - CLICK HERE …so that it can be reused to REPLACE another shot of him a little later on.

…and then we CUT* to Anakin slowly crawling up the slope, as a large shadow passes over him -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the large shadow turns out to be from the Emperor’s shuttle as it flies past -

…before it folds up it’s wings as it lands on a platform, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Anakin looking up as we hear a trooper’s voice saying “YOUR MAJESTY, THIS WAY” which appears at this point, as I’m just not keen on it personally - CLICK HERE …and I’d REPLACE it with the shot I removed earlier, as I’d prefer to keep Anakin’s facial burns more indistinct from this point on.

…and then we CUT* to Anakin slowly crawling up the slope as he groans -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Emperor accompanied by two troopers, as he points and announces "THERE HE IS…HE’S STILL ALIVE…"

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin slowly rolls onto his back -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Emperor orders “GET A MEDICAL CAPSULE IMMEDIATELY!” -

…as a trooper says “YES SIR, RIGHT AWAY”, before both troopers leave, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Emperor slowly walks over to Anakin, and kneels down to touch his head -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we ‘wipe’ to two spacesuited aliens looking down on a planetoid base -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the close-up shot of Yoda with his eyes closed which appears at this point, as I’m just not keen on it personally - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Yoda being interrupted by Bail as he says “EXCUSE ME MASTER YODA…”, as Yoda opens his eyes and turns around -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Bail says “…OBI-WAN KENOBI HAS MADE CONTACT” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Padme’s ship arrives at the planetoid base -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Padme’s ship drops down to land inside the planetoid base -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan carries Padme down the ramp of her ship, and Bail says "WE’LL TAKE HER TO THE MEDICAL CENTRE, QUICKLY!"

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Emperor ship’s on a stormy Coruscant platform, as he accompanies Anakin’s medical capsule -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the shot of the Emperor’s ship coming in to land on the Coruscant building’s platform before the shot above…as I’ve already seen it fold it’s wings and land on Mustafar earlier anyway, and would just prefer to see the Emperor disembarking with the medical capsule instead, as I like the juxtaposition with the shot of everyone getting off Padme’s ship beforehand - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Anakin on an operating table, as medical droids attach metal legs to him, and he screams in agony -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Padme being attended to in the medical facility, as a medical droid says “…WE ARE LOSING HER” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan says SHE’S DYING?" -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the medical droid saying “WE NEED TO OPERATE QUICKLY, IF WE ARE TO SAVE THE BABIES” -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda as he takes in the situation -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the medical droid saying “SHE’S CARRYING TWINS” -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I had already put together a slightly longer version of all the medical facility shots and dialogue which I preferred, and included it here…UNTIL I remembered that someone mentioned in the past that R2D2 shouldn’t really have interacted with Yoda at any point…as they don’t seem to recognise each other when they meet on ‘Dagobah’ in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK! Well this bugged me, as I agree with that…and as far as I recall, this is the only instance we actually see them together throughout the PREQUELS…so while it was a pity to lose shots of the neat medical set, it was more important to me to smooth the continuity better for myself, and I ended up having to redo the whole sequence WITHOUT any of the shots of C3PO and R2D2 inside the actual medical facility with Yoda and Co. …and very luckily, there was just enough of the relevant dialogue in the shots without them to make a new sequence I was satisfied with, before I posted this today. 😃

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan’s reaction, as he walks over to look through the glass -

…and puts his hand over his mouth, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Anakin in a protective suit, as the final section of his helmet is lowered down -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the initial shot of Anakin on the table, as I’m just not keen on it personally…as his boots have got metal clamps around them, and I don’t want to include any shots of him being restrained in any way - CLICK HERE

…and the reason I don’t want to see him restrained on the table in any way is because…I’d rather not be reminded of his ‘FRANKEN-VADER’ sequence with the Emperor whatsever! - CLICK HERE

…and then we continue on as normal, as the faceplate starts to lower slowly -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Anakin’s burnt face which appears at this point, because I’m just not keen on it personally - CLICK HERE …and although I reckon that joining the two slightly different faceplate shots would work okay in motion for myself, I’d just discard the first shot and only use the second one with the red eyepieces throughout, if it’s too jarring.

…and then we CUT* to the faceplate slowly getting nearer -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the faceplate is fitted in place -

…and the top section of the helmet is attached, as we hear Darth Vader’s first rasping breath, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Padme’s head moving slightly, as she exhales her final breath -

…as she passes away, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Yes, he’s ended up killing her…the bastard! But because I’d be watching the ORIGINAL TRILOGY first anyway, George’s inconsistency about Leia remembering her mother somewhat won’t bother me as much by the time I get to this point. And it means I can include Padme’s funeral procession scenes which I like. This happens to be my FAVOURITE cut ever when it comes to the PREQUELS, by the way. I can’t recall who did it originally, but I think they included Padme saying the line about there still being good in Anakin. For my own purposes, I’d prefer for her to be too fatally damaged by what he did to her, for her to say anything before she dies…and I really like the juxtaposition between this shot of her breathing her last and the shot of Darth Vader’s breathing beforehand…and of course, it gets rid of a LOT of moments and dialogue I’d rather forget at a stroke! 😃

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan looks on distressed while holding one of her babies -

…and Yoda turns away sadly, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship arriving at Naboo -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Yoda discusses the twins with Bail and Obi-wan aboard the Tantive ship -

…as they agree that the twins should be separated for their safety, before Yoda says “UNTIL THE TIME IS RIGHT, DISAPPEAR WE WILL”, and they bow in respect and go to leave, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the rest of the sequence which appears at this point, where Yoda tells Obi-wan that he has training on Tattooine for him, and that Qui-gon has returned from the netherworld of the Force, and that he will teach him how to commune with him…as I’m just not keen on it personally, and don’t need every single ‘loose end’ explained away. And anyway, there might even be a ‘surprise’ appearance of Qui-gon’s ‘Forceghost’ at the end of RISE OF THE SKYWALKER somewhere…so I can wait until then to see him appear as one, if that’s the case. 😉

…and then we CUT* to Padme’s sombre funeral procession on Naboo -

…as we have our final look at Luke and Leia’s mother -

…and we end on this ‘wipe’ shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see Star Destroyers and TIE ships in space -

…as the TIE ships scream by, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Emperor and Darth Vader on a Star Destroyer bridge, looking out the window at the Death Star under construction -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Darth Vader folds his arms -

…and we end on this ‘wipe’ shot -

…and we continue on as normal, as the Tantive ship approaches Alderaan -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of the Tantive ship heading down into the city which appears at this point, as I’m just not keen on it personally - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship landing on a platform in the city -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship’s interior, as Bail prepares to leave, and tells Captain Antilles to wipe C3PO’s memory -

…as a startled C3PO says “WHAT?” -

…and R2D2 beeps in amusement -

…as C3PO nervously says “OH NO…” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda’s transport heading to ‘Dagobah’, as he goes into self-imposed exile -

aa

NOTE - This deleted ‘Dagobah’ scene actually begins with slow pan to the left of the planet BEFORE the noise of Yoda’s transport comes into the shot, although I couldn’t find a pic of it…but I’m including a clip link below this as a reminder of how it all sounds in motion.

…as his transport lands, then opens up -

…and Yoda looks out -

…and we end on this shot -

Here’s the clip - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to a large balcony on Alderaan -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Because I’ve tried to give the impression that Padme didn’t recover to name her twins herself before she died, I’m going to assume that it was actually their respective adoptive parents who named the babies themselves.

…and then we continue on as normal, as Senator Bail presents his wife with a baby girl -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see the baby girl’s face -

…and we end on this ‘wipe’ shot to Obi-wan on Tattooine -

…as Obi-wan dismounts -

…and then meets up with Beru -

…as he hands the baby over to her -

…and we see the baby boy’s face -

…as Beru smiles -

…and Obi-wan smiles back at her -

…as Beru turns to take the baby over to Owen -

…while Obi-wan watches them for a moment, then turns to leave -

…as Beru shows Owen the baby -

…and they both turn to look in the distance -

…as they watch familiar twin suns, before we conclude on this ‘wipe’ shot to the end credits -

** WHEW! **

So that’s the way I’d ideally like to see the ENDING of REVENGE OF THE SITH restructured…but it would mean editing it in DVD quality to keep everything consistent, due to my wanting to incorporate the deleted ‘Dagobah/Yoda’ scene…

…which I’d be fine with personally, although an HD version of all this would work fine WITHOUT the deleted scene too…as the shot of C3PO saying “OH NO…” would also transition nicely to the shot of the large balcony on Alderaan directly, as the overall sequences and music flows well for that also.

HOWEVER…a long time ago, I briefly toyed with the notion of how I’d alter that ending if I were to begin a ‘viewing order’ with the PREQUEL movies BEFORE watching the ORIGINAL TRILOGY…so before I go onto anything else, some of you may be interested in some of the alternative changes I originally had in mind for that long-ditched scenario… 😃

So that’s UP NEXT, as it’s just a case of doing a ‘cut-and-paste’ of a small portion of the version above, to show the different changes I wanted at the time.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

NOTE - to fit in shot of Anakin getting metal limbs on table in a way that flows well with the way I’m restructuring things, I’m doing an Anakin/Padme/Anakin/Padme etc. way of alternating their progress. HOWEVER…I MIGHT end up deciding NOT to include that shot eventually, and just show Anakin in the suit as mask goes on at some point after seeing him in the medical capsule??

NOTE - add the existing order of these scenes in the actual movie at the top of this for reference.

(NOTE - I MIGHT decide to use this shot of Vader walking towards the Emperor instead, as I like the music - but while I can get away with this brief look at the dodgy-looking ‘Tarkin’ guy, I’m not sure if it gives a clear enough look at the ‘Deathstar’ being constructed) -

…OR I MIGHT even just decide to cut directly from the stardestroyers and ties to Vader crossing his arms beside the Emperor??

I’VE STILL TO ADD CERTAIN SHOTS AT THIS POINT BEFORE THE ‘VADER SUIT’ SHOT BELOW - note - I’d like to include shot of Anakin getting metal limbs attached (including LAST part of ‘overhead’ shot beforehand??), but MIGHT end up placing some of the numbered shots such as Padme dying BEFORE the ‘vader suit’ shot??, and MIGHT end up SPLITTING UP the scene of the droid talking about the TWINS and Obi-wan holding his mouth??

NOTE - I MIGHT end up INCLUDING close-up shot of CGI YODA IN CONTEMPLATION (comes after 2 aliens look down on moonbase)…then CUT to CGI shot of EMPEROR’S ship coming in to land on rainy city, as this would still allow my above order of scenes, but MIGHT let things flow a bit better?? OR could I have FULL sequence of ship landing and Emperor disembarking with Vader in medical capsule (even though the join is bad)…before then having FULL Obi-wan ship sequence where it lands on moonbase and he disembarks with Padme’s body…and THEN we CUT to overhead shot of Anakin with metal legs, and continue my order as above?? I’M NOT SURE YET!

THIS IS A POSSIBILITY TOO? - Obi-wan’s ship lands, as he carries Padme down ramp followed by C3PO and R2…CUT to the Emperor’s ship landed, as he follows behind Vader’s medical capsule…CUT to medical droid saying that Padme is dying and that she’s having twins, as Obi-wan walks away and holds his mouth…CUT to Anakin on table in his Vader suit, as helmet goes on (this would unfortunately mean having to DISCARD overhead shot of Anakin’s metal legs, as he screams on table!)…CUT to close-up of Padme dying, as Obi-wan holds a baby, and Yoda looks sad…CUT to Tantive ship about to land on Naboo in daylight, as Yoda, Bail, and Obi-wan discuss hiding the twins and Yoda says “until the time is right disappear we will”…CUT to Naboo at night, as Padme’s funeral then ‘wipes’ to Stardestroyers and Emperor and Vader…etc. etc. - HOWEVER, IT MIGHT BE BEST TO SHOW HOW HE GOT NEW LEGS!?

OR PERHAPS THIS INSTEAD? - Obi-wan’s ship lands, as he carries Padme down ramp followed by C3PO and R2…CUT to the Emperor’s ship landed, as he follows behind Vader’s medical capsule…CUT to overhead shot of Anakin’s metal legs, as he screams on table…CUT to medical droid saying that Padme is dying and that she’s having twins, as Obi-wan walks away and holds his mouth…CUT to Anakin on table in his Vader suit, as helmet goes on…CUT to clos-up of Padme dying, as Obi-wan holds a baby, and Yoda looks sad…CUT to Tantive ship about to land on Naboo in daylight, as Yoda, Bail, and Obi-wan discuss hiding the twins and Yoda says “until the time is right disappear we will”…CUT to Naboo at night, as Padme’s funeral then ‘wipes’ to Stardestroyers and Emperor and Vader…etc. etc.

NOTE - SAY THAT I WANT TO KEEP THE EMPEROR AS MENACING AS POSSIBLE, AND WILL BE REMOVING ANY SILLY EXPRESSIONS ALONG THE WAY. ALSO SAY THAT THERE WILL BE VERY LITTLE DIALOGUE HEARD DURING THE WAY MY END SEQUENCES FLOW, AND JOHN WILLIAMS’ MUSIC FLOWS IN MORE OF AN UNINTERRUPTED WAY RIGHT THROUGH TO THE END CREDITS NOW.

(IMPORTANT NOTE TO MYSELF! - I MIGHT END UP JOINING BOTH PARTS OF THE YODA/EMPEROR IN HIS OFFICE SCENES TOGETHER SO THAT I CAN THEN JOIN BOTH PARTS OF ANAKIN VS OBI-WAN HITTING CONSOLE/DISPLAY GRAPHIC SCENES TOGETHER TOO, FOR LONGER CONTINUOUS FIGHT SCENES)

NOTE - BELOW IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY WHICH DOES THE SAME KIND OF THING, EXCEPT USING THE MOVIE’S ACTUAL LAYOUT OF HOW THE YODA/EMPEROR IN OFFICE SCENE IS SPLIT UP -

1st PART OF DUEL

We START OFF at the point where Anakin and Obi-wan BEGIN their lightsaber duel -

…as Anakin backflips to attack Obi-wan ferociously, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Yoda enters a room to confront the Emperor -

…and proceeds to knock out two red guards with the ‘Force’, before the Emperor zaps Yoda with some ‘Force-lightning’, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the cackling Emperor walking towards Yoda lying on the floor -

…as the Emperor continues to gloat over him, and eventually says “AT LAST, THE JEDI ARE NO MORE”, and Yoda gets up saying “NOT IF ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT, I HAVE” and ‘Force-pushes’ him backwards -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda saying “AT AN END YOUR RULE IS…” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Emperor gets up -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Yoda says “…AND NOT SHORT ENOUGH IT WAS” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Emperor starts to jump forwards -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Emperor jumps towards Yoda -

NOTE - I’m removing the shots of the Emperor knocking over the chair, as it just makes him look silly - https://i1.wp.com/caps.pictures/200/5-starwars3/full/starwars3-movie-screencaps.com-12998.jpg?strip=all

Also, the chair is suddenly upright in this shot soon afterwards! Perhaps the Emperor quickly ‘Force’-manoeuvred it back into position offscreen before he jumped towards Yoda, who knows? 😉 - https://i2.wp.com/caps.pictures/200/5-starwars3/full/starwars3-movie-screencaps.com-13019.jpg?strip=all

FINISH THIS OFF, AND END BY SAYING ‘AND WE END ON THIS SHOT -’

…and then we CUT* to SOMETHING 2

NOTE - I’M GETTING RID OF ALL THE TWIRLING LIGHTSABER AND FORCE-PUSH ANTICS, AS WELL AS ANAKIN LEAPING OVER THE TABLE TOWARDS OBI-WAN AT THIS POINT.

…and then we CUT* to SOMETHING 3

NOTE - THE ALARM AND STRUCTURE SHUTTING OFF SOUND OMINOUS AT THIS POINT

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and then we CUT* to SOMETHING 4

…and then continue onwards from here until the end in exactly the same way as I described ABOVE.

NOTE - CHECK OUT WHAT IT WOULD LOOK AND SOUND LIKE IF I CUT FROM CLOSE-UP OF EMPEROR SNARLING AT START OF YODA/EMPEROR FIGHT TO CLOSE-UP OF ANAKIN VS OBI-WAN DUEL JUST BEFORE THEY GO OUT DOORWAY AND FIGHT ALONG WALKWAY, AND AS ANAKIN STRIDES FORWARD, I’D CUT TO MONITOR SOUNDING OMINOUS, AS WE SEE BIG STRUCTURE’S FORCE-FIELD FAIL, THEN CUT BACK TO YODA/EMPEROR FIGHT AS CEILING OPENS, AND THE PLATFORM STARTS TO RISE UP.

NOTE - AN ALTERNATIVE WAY THAT THINGS COULD BE CUT IS THIS - YODA FALLS NEAR A PIPE VENT, AND LOOKS UP, AND THEN WE SEE HIS CLOAK FLOAT DOWN AND GET CAUGHT IN A BIT OF WRECKAGE…THEN WE’D CUT* TO YODA CRAWLING THROUGH A PIPE AS HE SAYS “HURRY, CAREFUL TIME THIS WILL TAKE”, AS BAIL REPLIES “ACTIVATE YOUR HOMING BEACON WHEN YOU’RE READY”…THEN WE’D CUT* TO ANAKIN VS OBI-WAN DUELLING AS THE HUGE STRUCTURE BREAKS OFF AND FLOATS AWAY WITH THEM ON IT…THEN WE’D CUT* TO YODA EMERGING FROM THE PIPE, JUMPING DOWN INTO BAIL’S SPEEDER, SAYING “FAILED I HAVE”, THEN FLYING OFF TO SAFETY…THEN WE’D CUT* TO THE TROOPER SAYING “THERE’S NO SIGN OF THE BODY”, AS THE EMPEROR DEMANDS THAT HE DOUBLES HIS SEARCH, ASK FOR HIS SHUTTLE TO BE PREPARED FOR IMMEDIATE TAKE-OFF, AND SAYS “I SENSE LORD VADER IS IN DANGER”…THEN WE’D CUT* TO THE TINY FIGURES ON THE HUGE STRUCTURE, AS THE DUEL RESUMES, BEFORE THEY JUMP OFF AND OBI-WAN CHOPS DOWN ANAKIN.

…and then we CUT* to Anakin struggling on the ground -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Obi-wan saying “YOU WERE MY BROTHER ANAKIN, I LOVED YOU” which appears at this point, as I’d prefer to end on his anguished words earlier - CLICK HERE

Additionally, I’d also get rid of this shot of Anakin struggling which then appears at this point, as I prefer to end on the shot of him struggling above - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Anakin’s legs, as his clothing catches fire -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan looks down at Anakin screaming in agony -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Anakin screaming in agony which appears at this point, as I’m just not keen on the look of it, and there’s plenty of screaming in agony to go around as it is! - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan turning his gaze away -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin screams in agony as the fire consumes him -

…then totally engulfs him, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin burns in close-up -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Obi-wan turning back to look which appears at this point - CLICK HERE …and I’d ALSO discard this shot of Anakin burning which appears just after it, as I actually prefer the progression of the sequence better without them - CLICK HERE**

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan starting to walk away -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Anakin screams in agony as Obi-wan leaves -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the shot of Obi-wan turning to look again which appears at this point - CLICK HERE

Additionally, I’d also discard the shot of a badly burned Anakin screaming in agony which appears just afterwards too - CLICK HERE

NOTE - DO AN ALTERNATIVE ENDING WHERE WE END ON ANAKIN ON TABLE AND DON’T SEE SUIT OR HELMET AT ALL! -

…WE’D SEE ANAKIN FOR THE LAST TIME ON THE MEDICAL TABLE -

…and then we CUT* to Padme exhaling her final breath -

…as she passes away, and we end on this shot -

THEN CUT LIKE THIS AFTER HER LATER FUNERAL -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship heading to Alderaan (NOTE - WOULD THIS CUT SOUND OKAY??) -

THEN I MIGHT GET RID OF THE NEXT SHOTS FROM THIS ONE WHERE THEY GET INTO THE COCKPIT…

https://i1.wp.com/caps.pictures/201/5-starwars-force/full/sw-force-awakens-movie-screencaps.com-4455.jpg?strip=all

…RIGHT UP TO GETTING RID OF THIS SHOT WHERE FINN GOES “OH NO!” TOO -

https://i0.wp.com/caps.pictures/201/5-starwars-force/full/sw-force-awakens-movie-screencaps.com-4489.jpg?strip=all

…and instead CUT directly to this shot the Falcon being swallowed up by a large ship of Finn getting into cockpit

(this is probably easiest way of getting rid of silly moment where Ray says “Get off!” as Finn pushes down on her head to look out…as well as eliminating dubious idea of them not seeing the ship out of the side window…and everything ends up tied together with red lighting as a lucky bonus) -

USE THIS SPACE FOR MORE ROGUE ONE IDEAS

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

DO MY ALTERNATIVE ENDING FOR ROTS HERE, WITH NO DARTH VADER SUIT -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the Emperor slowly walks over to Anakin, and kneels down to touch his head -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we ‘wipe’ to two spacesuited aliens looking down on a moonbase -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the close-up shot of Yoda with his eyes closed which appears at this point, as I’m not particularly keen on it - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Yoda being interrupted by Bail as he says “EXCUSE ME MASTER YODA…”, as Yoda opens his eyes and turns around -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Bail says “…OBI-WAN KENOBI HAS MADE CONTACT” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Padme’s ship arrives at the moonbase -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Padme’s ship drops down to land inside the moonbase -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Emperor ship’s on a stormy Coruscant platform, as he accompanies Anakin’s medical capsule -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the shot of the Emperor’s ship coming in to land on the Coruscant building’s platform before the shot above…as I’ve already seen it fold it’s wings and land on Mustafar earlier anyway, and would prefer to just see the Emperor disembarking with the medical capsule instead - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan carrying Padme down the ramp of her ship, as Bail says "WE’LL TAKE HER TO THE MEDICAL CENTRE, QUICKLY!"

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Anakin on an operating table, as medical droids attach metal legs to him -

…and then we continue on as normal, as he screams in pain -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Padme being treated in the moonbase medical facility -

…as a medical droid floats forward, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the medical droid saying “MEDICALLY, SHE’S COMPLETELY HEALTHY…FOR REASONS WE CAN’T EXPLAIN…” at this point.

…and then we CUT* to the medical droid saying “…WE ARE LOSING HER” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan says SHE’S DYING?" -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the medical droid saying “WE DON’T KNOW WHY…SHE HAS LOST THE WILL TO LIVE…” at this point.

…and then we CUT* to the medical droid saying “WE NEED TO OPERATE QUICKLY, IF WE ARE TO SAVE THE BABIES” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Bail says “BABIES?” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the medical droid says “SHE’S CARRYING TWINS” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Yoda takes in the situation -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan walks over to look through the glass, and holds his mouth -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Anakin in a protective suit, as the final section of his helmet is lowered down -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the initial shot of Anakin on the table, as I’m just not keen on it personally…as his boots have got metal clamps around them, and I don’t want to include any shots of him being restrained in any way - CLICK HERE

…and the reason I don’t want to see him restrained on the table in any way is because…I’d rather not be reminded of the ‘FRANKEN-VADER’ sequence with the Emperor whatsever! - CLICK HERE

…and then we continue on as normal, as the faceplate starts to lower slowly -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of Anakin’s burnt face which appears at this point, because I’m just not keen on it! - CLICK HERE …and although I reckon that joining the two slightly different faceplate shots would work okay in motion for myself, I’d just discard the first shot and only use the second one with the red eyepieces throughout, if it’s too jarring.

…and then we CUT* to the faceplate slowly getting nearer -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the faceplate is fitted in place -

…and the final section of the helmet is attached, as we hear Darth Vader’s first rasping breath, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Padme’s head moving slightly, as she exhales her final breath -

…as she passes away, and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan looks on distressed while holding one of her babies -

…and Yoda turns away sadly, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship arriving at Naboo -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Yoda discusses the twins with Bail and Obi-wan aboard the Tantive ship -

…as they agree that the twins should be separated for their safety, before Yoda says “UNTIL THE TIME IS RIGHT, DISAPPEAR WE WILL”, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the rest of the sequence which appears at this point, where Yoda tells Obi-wan that he has training on Tattooine for him, and that Qui-gon has returned from the netherworld of the Force, and that he will teach him how to commune with him…as I’m not particularly keen on it personally, and don’t need every single ‘loose end’ explained away. And anyway, there might even be a ‘surprise’ appearance of Qui-gon’s ‘Forceghost’ at the end of RISE OF THE SKYWALKER somewhere…so I can wait until then to see him appear as one, if that’s the case. 😉

…and then we CUT* to Padme’s sombre funeral procession on Naboo -

…as we have our final look at Luke and Leia’s mother -

…and we end on this ‘wipe’ shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see Star Destroyers and TIE ships in space -

…as the TIE ships scream by, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Emperor and Darth Vader on a Star Destroyer bridge, looking out the window at the Death Star under construction -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Darth Vader folds his arms -

…and we end on this ‘wipe’ shot -

…and we continue on as normal, as the Tantive ship approaches Alderaan -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of the Tantive ship heading down into the city which appears at this point, as I’m just not keen on it personally - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship landing on a platform in the city -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship’s interior, as Bail prepares to leave, and tells Captain Antilles to wipe C3PO’s memory -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…as a startled C3PO says “WHAT?”, and R2D2 beeps in amusement, as C3PO says “OH NO…”, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda landing on Dagobah, as he goes into self-imposed exile -

NOTE - This deleted Dagobah scene actually starts with a view of the planet before Yoda’s transport comes into the shot, but I couldn’t find a pic of it - so I’m including some clips at the bottom of this, as a reminder of how it all looks and sounds in motion.

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xs4ih8

IS THERE A YOUTUBE CLIP WHICH I COULD ADD HERE INSTEAD? - OR TURN INTO A STREAMABLE LINK??

…and then we CUT* to a large balcony on Alderaan -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Because I’m not including the scenes of Padme naming her twins in this restructure, it’s open to interpretation about whether she was able to do it just before she passed away, or whether it was actually the respective adoptive parents who named the babies themselves.

…and then we continue on as normal, as Senator Bail presents his wife with a baby girl -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see the baby girl’s face -

…and we end on this ‘wipe’ shot to Obi-wan on Tattooine -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan dismounts -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal.

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see the baby boy’s face -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal,

…and we end on this shot -

…as we conclude on this ‘wipe’ to the end credits -

**Coming Soon…  **James Cameron’s sequel is currently in the early stages of development for release in 2014…


NOTE - Just in case anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime, I’ve just temporarily used this space to put the following edit ideas/shots on here to remind myself about them at some point! 😃 -

I’D LIKE TO START OFF MY ‘STAR TREK 2009’ EDIT SOMETHING LIKE THIS -

I always loved the epic music heard in the movie’s third trailer seen below (‘Freedom Fighters’ by Two Steps From Hell), and was really hoping that it would feature in the movie itself -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8YxTPVkeBE

…but of course, it DIDN’T end up in the movie. However, there’s a certain way I CAN incorporate it for myself - I’m going to use it as an introductory ‘overture’ over a receding starfield, in the same manner that was done for the beginning of ST:TMP, as seen here - NOTE - IS IT POSSIBLE FOR WHOLE EDIT TO STILL BE IN 5.1 SOUND IF I WERE TO INCLUDE A SOURCE FOR THIS TRACK, OR WOULD IT ALL NEED TO BE IN STEREO 2.0?? ASK ABOUT THIS, AS IF I CAN’T DO THIS ALL IN 5.1 SOUND, THEN I’D PROBABLY RE-EDIT THE START THIS WAY INSTEAD - PARAMOUNT/SPYGLASS ENTERTAINMENT/BAD ROBOT LOGOS/‘VULCAN’ PLANET SHOT/BABY SPOCK SCENE/KELVIN SHIP DESTRUCTION AND KIRK BABY TRANSITIONING TO ‘STAR TREK’ MAIN TITLE/(THEN EITHER CUT TO KLINGON PLANET AND ESCAPING NERO SAYING “THE WAIT IS OVER”…OR INSTEAD CUT TO’VULCAN’ CITY, THEN CUT TO AMANDA AND ADULT SPOCK LEAVING VULCAN SCENES, WHICH TRANSITIONS TO ‘IOWA’ WITH ADULT KIRK IN A BARFIGHT)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEGEaFC4CR4

…except I’ll use the ‘Two Steps From Hell’ music to accompany the moving starfield for an alternate ‘ovature’ in this instance -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tupzf9whLoc

MY 2 favourite ‘Star Trek’ characters are KIRK and SPOCK, and my re-edit of this movie will definately reflect that using the footage I’m keeping, while retaining a ‘pacing’ which I’m content with…even if I consider them ‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’ versions, unconnected to the ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’ characters of the original TOS show!..so for my NEW opening of movie I’d CUT/OR ‘FADE’(?) to ‘Vulcan’ planet shot to initially establish setting -

CUT to deleted scene (with quietly serene music) of 2 Vulcan women pouring water over baby with it’s parents, which ends in cute pointy-eared baby shot fading to black -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaAusqTaqcA

BETTER QUALITY CLIP - https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3sbjp2

(and we get the familiar ‘Vazquez Rocks’ background to start things off as a bonus, which suits my TOS sensibilities just fine)

…and when the baby Spock close-up quietly ‘fades out’, then we immediately CUT to a ‘fade in’ of the Paramount/Spyglass Entertainment/Bad Robot logos, with quiet music that builds and builds - NOTE - ADD SHOT OF PARAMOUNT STARS BEGINNING TO SWOOP TOWARDS US HERE!

TRANSITIONS to main title which fades to black before theme music ends -

NOTE - ADD ‘YOUNG SPOCK’ VIDEO THAT I’M DISCARDING TOO

CUT to -

NOTE - if I just click ‘Copy image address’ DIRECTLY on one of the SMALL ‘screencaps’, then it will only end up SMALL like this once I ‘paste’ it! (might be useful to use in certain circumstances to show ideas)

CUT to Amanda saying “Spock”, as adult Spock walks forwards to talk to her -

TRANSITIONS to -

VIDEO OF AMANDA AND ADULT SPOCK - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJxqi090Yfc

AND THIS VIDEO HAS ‘VULCAN’ PLANET AND CITY SHOT ETC. THAT I CAN EDIT IN ‘STREAMABLE’ CLIPS PERHAPS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJm2xgas8JQ

AND THIS VIDEO CONTINUES ON FROM THAT, WHICH INCLUDES ‘THREE YEARS LATER’ AND NARADA/SPOCK ARRIVING SHOTS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHpDD6MCrBM

TRANSITIONS to adult Kirk getting into a barfight and talk with Pike about his father -

NOTE - THIS TO BE SORTED OUT INTO RIGHT PLACE EVENTUALLY -

KIRK AND BONES HEAD UPWARDS IN SHUTTLE FROM BASE, AND WE TRANSITION TO SPACE WHERE THE WORDS THREE YEARS LATER APPEAR, AND THIS STATIONARY SHOT IS VERY QUIET AT THIS MOMENT -

CUT to NERO DELETED SCENE (DISCARD final unfinished explosion after onscreen wording to establish setting, and might DISCARD a shot or two of the multi-eyed alien being questioned too), which ends with Nero saying THE WAIT IS OVER! -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4jEhpesnx0

NOTE - SHOLULD I ALTERNATIVELY INSERT THIS DELETED NERO SCENE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ‘STAR TREK’ MAIN TITLE INSTEAD?? - WHICH WOULD SEEM LIKE MORE TIME HAS PASSED FOR NERO AND CREW TO REGAIN NARADA SHIP AND HANG ABOUT FOR ‘ELDERLY SPOCK’ FROM THE ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’…AND NERO’S CALCULATIONS ABOUT HAVING 'TIME-TRAVELLED BACKWARDS ARE WRONG ANYWAY, AS THIS IS ACTUALLY AN ‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’ HE’S ENTERED (JUST AS ‘ELDERLY SPOCK’ HAS), FILLED WITH WHOLLY DIFFERENT, UNRELATED CHARACTERS TO THE ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’ THAT HE (AND ‘ELDERLY SPOCK’) CAME FROM…AND THE ‘THREE YEARS LATER’ DOESN’T MATTER TOO MUCH, AND THE ‘SWIPING’ SHOT TO THE NARADA COULD JUST STAY AS IT IS - NOT SURE YET!

CUT to rest of space shot, as it swipes to the left to reveal the Nero’s Narada ship -

CUT to bridge of Narada, as Nero goes on to wait for Spock to come through (NOTE - do I DISCARD shot of Nero on table beside paper that Klingon threw up in air, OR do I KEEP it as a flashback? - is dialogue we hear over it, important to keep??) -

NOTE - If including a CD source for the ‘Freedom Fighters’ music ‘overture’ means that I can’t have the movie in 5.1 sound, then I’d probably do something like this for a ‘pure’ re-edit of the movie -

Paramount/Spyglass Entertainment/Bad Robot logos/TRANSITIONS to Kelvin ship encountering Narada ship, as baby Kirk is born/TRANSITIONS to ‘Star Trek’ main title/CUT to ‘Vulcan’ planet shot/CUT to 2 women pouring water over baby Spock, as shot ends on close-up with cute pointy ears…OR should I CUT to Amanda talking to adult Spock/Spock leaving scenes at this point, followed by adult Kirk barfight in IOWA???..OR should I CUT to NERO DELETED SCENE at this point, which ends in him saying “The wait is over!”?? - IS ALL THIS RIGHT?? IS SPOCK OLDER THAN KIRK IN PRIME TIMELINE?? THIS COULD MAKE IT SEEM LIKE AN ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE IF KIRK WAS BORN FIRST IN MY EDIT - OF COURSE, I COULD PUT BABY SPOCK SCENE BEFORE THE LOGOS AS PREVIOUSLY SUGGESTED, IF IT FLOWS BETTER. FINISH ALL THIS OFF PROPERLY.

a NEW OPENING clip that someone came up with - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sE8-pdwCvc

NOTE - IF I CAN’T GET 5.1 SOUND DUE TO USING CD SOUND FOR ‘OVERTURE’ IDEA AT BEGINNING, THEN I’D FORGET THAT NOTION, AND DEFINATELY BEGIN THE MOVIE LIKE THIS INSTEAD (AND DESCRIBE HOW I’M IMAGINING IT’S PREMISE AS HAVING ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’ NERO AND ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’ ELDERLY SPOCK UNKNOWINGLY ENTERING INTO A TOTALLY ‘ALTERNATE’ UNIVERSE, RATHER THAN ‘TIME-TRAVELLING BACKWARDS’ WITHIN THE ‘PRIME’ UNIVERSE ITSELF!) -

  1. OPEN WITH QUICK ‘FADE IN’ TO (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) ‘VULCAN’ PLANET SHOT
  2. CUT TO DELETED SCENE OF 2 WOMEN WITH (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) SPOCK BABY AND (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) PARENTS, WHICH ENDS WITH BABY SPOCK EARS FADING TO BLACK (THIS ‘SPOCK’ IS BORN IN AN ‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’, AND IS NOT THE ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’ SPOCK OF THE CLASSIC TOS SHOW WHO IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT IN ATTITUDE!) 😃
  3. CUT TO BLACKNESS QUICKLY MOVING DOWNWARDS TO CLOUDS AND STARS COMING TOWARDS US AS PARAMOUNT/SPYGLASS ENTERTAINMENT/BAD ROBOT LOGOS APPEAR
  4. TRANSITIONS TO (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) KELVIN SHIP AS NARADA SHIP (FROM THE ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’) ENTERS INTO THIS ‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’, AND WE SEE DESTRUCTION OF KELVIN SHIP AS BABY KIRK IS BORN (THIS ‘KIRK’ IS BORN IN THIS SAME ‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’ JUST AS BABY SPOCK WAS, AND IS NOT THE ‘PRIME UNIVERSE’ KIRK OF THE CLASSIC TOS SHOW WHO IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT IN ATTITUDE!) 😃 THE SEQUENCE ENDS WITH ‘STAR TREK’ MAIN TITLE FADING TO BLACK
  5. CUT TO (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) ‘VULCAN’ CITY
  6. CUT TO (‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’) AMANDA AND ADULT (‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’) SPOCK, AS HE LEAVES (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) VULCAN COUNCIL
  7. TRANSITIONS TO (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) ‘IOWA’ AND ADULT (‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’) KIRK IN A BAR FIGHT, AS HE GOES ON TO JOIN (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) STARFLEET, AND WE EVENTUALLY TRANSITION TO SPACE AND THE WORDS ‘THREE YEARS LATER’
  8. CUT TO DELETED SCENE OF (‘ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE’) KLINGON PRISON, AS A KLINGON INTERROGATOR (ALSO WRONGLY!) THINKS NERO HAS ‘TIME-TRAVELED FROM THE FUTURE’, WHEREAS NERO HAS ACTUALLY COME FROM ANOTHER UNIVERSE - THE ‘PRIME’ ONE. THE SCENE ENDS ON NERO SAYING “THE WAIT IS OVER!”
  9. CUT TO ‘SIDE SWIPE’ IN SPACE AS NARADA APPEARS, AND TRANSITIONS TO NERO WATCHING (‘PRIME UNIVERSE’) SPOCK ENTERING THIS ‘ALTERNATE UNIVERSE’ IN THE SAME WAY HE DID PREVIOUSLY.

NOTE - CHECK THE FOOTAGE TO SEE THAT THE ‘CADETS’ SCENES OF KIRK AND BONES DON’T CONTRADICT THE ‘THREE YEARS LATER’ WORDING IN ANY WAY!

NOTE - SHOULD I CUT TO DELETED KLINGON PRISON PLANET AND NERO ESCAPING SCENES IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ‘STAR TREK’ MAIN TITLE??..OR INSTEAD CUT TO ‘VULCAN’ CITY AND AMANDA/ADULT SPOCK SCENES AT THAT POINT, KEEPING THE DELETED SCENE TO AFTER THE ‘THREE YEARS LATER’ MOMENT SHOWN FURTHER DOWN?? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4jEhpesnx0 - NOT SURE YET.

NOTE - I’M STILL THINKING ABOUT THIS POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVE RE-STRUCTURE TOO! - 1. / 2. / 3. / 4. / 5. / 6. AS ABOVE, BUT MIGHT INSTEAD THEN CUT FROM 6. (‘STAR TREK’ MAIN TITLE) DIRECTLY TO 10. (DELETED SCENE OF NERO BREAKING OUT OF KLINGON PRISON) INSTEAD! AND THEN I’D CUT FROM CLOSE-UP OF NERO SAYING “THE WAIT IS OVER!” DIRECTLY TO 7. (VULCAN CITY), FOLLOWED BY 8. AND 9. (WHICH ENDS WITH ‘THREE YEARS LATER’ WORDING), AND CONTINUE ON WITH 11. (‘SWIPES’ LEFT TO NERO’S NARADA SHIP AS ‘ELDERLY SPOCK’ APPEARS IN HIS JELLYFISH SHIP)

NOTE - I REALLY LIKE PUTTING VULCAN CITY SHOT AFTER ‘STAR TREK’ MAIN TITLE, SO IF I DECIDE AGAINST PUTTING DELETED SCENE OF NERO BREAKING OUT OF KLINGON PRISON IMMEDIATELY AFTER ‘STAR TREK’ MAIN TITLE INSTEAD, THEN I COULD ALTERNATIVELY SLOT IT IN-BETWEEN CLOSE-UP OF KIRK LOOKING UP AT ENTERPRISE BEING BUILT…AND KIRK RIDING HIS BIKE TOWARDS SHUTTLE AND PIKE. THIS WOULD MEAN THAT I WOULDN’T NEED TO CUT SPACE SHOT WITH ‘THREE YEARS LATER’ WORDING AT ALL - ANOTHER THING, I MIGHT DECIDE TO DO AWAY WITH ‘THREE YEARS LATER’ WORDING ALTOGETHER AS THE MUSIC JUST ENDS BEFORE THE WORDING APPEARS…SO I COULD ACTUALLY CUT TO THE ‘SWIPE’ TO THE LEFT TOWARDS THE NARADA SHIP INSTEAD AT THIS POINT SO THAT WE DON’T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT HOW LONG NERO WAS HANGING AROUND FOR ‘SPOCK’ TO APPEAR!

PLEASE NOTE - Just in case anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime - although I’ve got many diverse ‘scene edits’ worked out for future use, I’m just temporarily using this space to visualise a few select ones for myself before I get a chance to set up a ‘personal blog’ to show a lot more ideas eventually! 😃

HOW I’D LIKE TO RE-EDIT THE OPENING OF ‘PROMETHEUS’ -

Although a lot of fan editors ADD the extended footage of additional ‘elder Engineers’ to the existing footage of an ‘Engineer’ sacrificing himself by willingly ingesting the ‘black goo’, I’d prefer to DISCARD this ‘Engineer’ opening altogether, so that the reveal of what the ‘Engineers’ actually look like is kept a mystery till later on…right up until the running ‘hologram recordings’ appear initially.

So this is how I’d like to re-structure my new opening instead -

NOTE - I COULD EVEN DISCARD THE REST OF THE LOGOS AT THIS POINT, AND BEGIN MY NEW OPENING NOW? NOT SURE YET.

TRANSITIONS to DUNE entertainment logo

CUT to ‘cave dig’ scene, which begins in blackness - NOTE - OR DO I DISCARD THIS AND CUT TO SPACE, AS SHIP APPEARS INSTEAD?? NOT SURE YET.

NOTE - I MIGHT DECIDE TO CUT FROM ‘TED TALK’ FADE TO BLACK DIRECTLY TO BLACK ‘CAVE SCENE’, AND CUT TO 'PROMETHEUS[ MAIN TITLE AT THIS POINT, BEFORE CUTTING TO SHIP AND WORDING? NOT SURE YET.

TRANSITIONS TO DEEP SPACE, AS TINY SHIP PASSES LEFT TO RIGHT -

TRANSITIONS to ship and wording -

NOTE - ONLY CLIP I COULD FIND OF THIS SHOT - ALSO NOTE - I MIGHT DECIDE TO DISCARD ‘CAVE SCENE’, AND JUST CUT FROM THE ‘PROMETHEUS’ MAIN TITLE DIRECTLY TO THIS SHOT OF THE SHIP AND IT’S WORDING INSTEAD? NOT SURE YET. -

  3. 2036 NEXUS DAWN SHORT - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgsS3nhRRzQ (NOTE - THIS MIGHT END UP IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE WARNER/SONY LOGO INSTEAD…FOLLOWED BY THE INFO WORDING OF WALLACE ENDING WITH THE RED ‘BLADE RUNNER’ WORDING…FOLLOWED BY THE 2048 NOWHERE TO RUN SHORT…FOLLOWED BY A TRIMMED VERSION OF THE BLADE RUNNER 2049 END TITLES AS MY NEW MAIN TITLES…FOLLOWED BY WHAT I WROTE IN 6. BELOW - IS THIS THE MOST LIKELY ORDER, DUE TO ME PREFERRING TO HAVE THE 2049 TITLE DATE COME AFTER THE 2036 AND 2048 DATES? - OR perhaps even put the 2048 NOWHERE TO RUN SHORT immediately after the 2036 NEXUS DAWN SHORT…followed by the BLADE RUNNER 2049 END CREDITS as my MAIN TITLE…followed by the INFO WORDING OF WALLACE ENDING WITH THE RED ‘BLADE RUNNER’ WORDING as it transitions as normal with the music over the opening eye, except keep that bit BLACK until we see the ‘eye’-like solar panels which the spinner eventually flies over??

  4. INTRO AND OPENING - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9L0pord5jE (JUST THE INFO WORDING OF WALLACE ENDING WITH THE RED ‘BLADE RUNNER’ WORDING, NOT THE OPENING EYE FOOTAGE ONWARDS)

  5. 2048 NOWHERE TO RUN SHORT - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ9Os8cP_gg

  6. AS THE MUSIC TO THE OPENING EYE KICKS IN, I MIGHT DISCARD THAT AND KEEP EVERYTHING BLACK UNTIL WE EVENTUALLY SEE THE ‘EYE’-LIKE SOLAR PANELS WHICH THE SPINNER EVENTUALLY FLIES OVER.

NOTE - I MIGHT EVEN DO THIS ORDER - WB/SONY LOGOS…THEN CUT TO 2036 NEXUS DAWN SHORT (slightly edited at start)…THEN CUT TO BLADE RUNNER 2049 END CREDITS AS MY ‘MAIN TITLE’…THEN CUT TO 2048 NOWHERE TO RUN SHORT…THEN CUT TO INFO WORDING OF WALLACE ENDING WITH THE RED ‘BLADE RUNNER’ WORDING, THEN CONTINUE ON IN WAY I DESCRIBED 6.

NOTE - WE SEE THE 2049 DATE NEAR THE START OF THE INITIAL ‘SPINNER APPROACH’ SCENE WHEN THE WORDS CALIFORNIA 2049 APPEAR.

Personally, I’d have preferred THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY movie to have been the ‘KIRK’ character’s FINAL onscreen mission, giving the impression that he’d remained safely ‘signed off’ at the end of it…rather than going on to be permanently ‘killed off’ in a ‘Next Generation’ hand-over!  Talk about an unnecessary cinematic downer for the original series fans…

It was bad enough that we once thought we’d permanently lost ‘SPOCK’ at the end of THE WRATH OF KHAN, lol.  But unlike 'SPOCK’s great ‘death’ scene, the ‘collapsing bridge’ just didn’t satisfy as a way of getting rid of one of Starfleet’s finest this time around…

Still, there’s always this particular fanedit below, which redresses the unfortunate GENERATIONS outcome a little…as ‘KIRK’ ends up having nothing to do with those pesky ‘Next Geners’ whatsoever in this version…

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
5th POST

Okay, although my ideal ending of REVENGE OF THE SITH involves the layout I showed in my previous post, due to the fact that I’d rather include certain imagery of Darth Vader SILENT ( ! ) in the suit…some of you might be interested to see what I ORIGINALLY wanted as an ending when I briefly toyed with the notion of starting my ‘viewing order’ with the PREQUEL TRILOGY ages ago, until I decided against it for the numerous reasons I’ve previously mentioned. -

I’ve got to pick a spot to show how things would have flowed, so this point is as good as any…and of course, everything BEFORE this scene would have been laid out in the exact same way as described in my previous post -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan carries Padme down the ramp of her ship, and Bail says "WE’LL TAKE HER TO THE MEDICAL CENTRE, QUICKLY!"

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Emperor ship’s on a stormy Coruscant platform, as he accompanies Anakin’s medical capsule -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the shot of the Emperor’s ship coming in to land on the Coruscant building’s platform before the shot above…as I’ve already seen it fold it’s wings and land on Mustafar earlier anyway, and would just prefer to see the Emperor disembarking with the medical capsule instead, as I like it’s juxtaposition with the shot of everyone getting off Padme’s ship beforehand - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Padme being attended to in the medical facility, as a medical droid says “…WE ARE LOSING HER” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan says SHE’S DYING?" -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the medical droid saying “WE NEED TO OPERATE QUICKLY, IF WE ARE TO SAVE THE BABIES” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda as he takes in the situation -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the medical droid saying “SHE’S CARRYING TWINS” -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I wanted to get rid of the ‘she’s lost the will to live’ nonsense of course, and I had already put together a version of all the medical facility shots and dialogue which I preferred, and included it here…UNTIL I remembered that someone mentioned in the past that R2D2 shouldn’t really have interacted with Yoda at any point…as they don’t seem to recognise each other when they meet on ‘Dagobah’ in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK! Well this bugged me, as I agree with that…and as far as I recall, this is the only instance we actually see them together throughout the PREQUELS…so while it was a pity to lose shots of the neat medical set, it was more important to me to smooth the continuity better for myself, and I ended up having to redo the whole sequence WITHOUT any of the shots of C3PO and R2D2 inside the actual medical facility with Yoda and Co. …and very luckily, there was just enough of the relevant dialogue in the shots without them to make a new sequence I was satisfied with, before I posted this today. 😃

…and then we CUT* to Obi-wan looking solemn, as he walks over to look through the glass -

…and puts his hand over his mouth, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Anakin on an operating table, as medical droids attach metal legs to him -

…as he screams in agony…

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Padme’s head moving slightly, as she exhales her final breath -

…as she passes away, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Yes, Padme remains done for in this version…but she managed to hold out long enough for the medical facility to save her twins, so that’s good. And it also means I can keep the funeral procession scenes which I like. I’d prefer for Padme to be fatally damaged by what Anakin did to her on Mustafar, and unable to say anything before she dies…as it’s all I need to see of her since we last saw her being attended to in the medical facility as shown above, since I’d rather discard the all the child-birth moments in-between! 😃

…and then we continue on as normal, as Obi-wan looks on distressed while holding one of her babies -

…and Yoda turns away sadly, and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship arriving at Naboo -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Yoda discusses the twins with Bail and Obi-wan aboard the Tantive ship -

…as they agree that the twins should be separated for their safety, before Yoda says “UNTIL THE TIME IS RIGHT, DISAPPEAR WE WILL”, and they bow in respect and go to leave, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the rest of the sequence which appears at this point, where Yoda tells Obi-wan that he has training on Tattooine for him, and that Qui-gon has returned from the netherworld of the Force, and that he will teach him how to commune with him…as I’m just not keen on it personally, and don’t need every single ‘loose end’ explained away. And anyway, there might even be a ‘surprise’ appearance of Qui-gon’s ‘Forceghost’ at the end of THE RISE OF SKYWALKER somewhere for all we know…so I can wait until then to see him appear as one, if that’s the case. 😉

…and then we CUT* to Padme’s sombre funeral procession on Naboo -

…as we have our final look at Luke and Leia’s mother -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship heading to Alderaan -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard this shot of the Tantive ship heading down into the city which appears at this point, as I’m just not keen on it personally - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship landing on a platform in the city -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the Tantive ship’s interior, as Bail prepares to leave, and tells Captain Antilles to wipe C3PO’s memory -

…as a startled C3PO says “WHAT?” -

…and R2D2 beeps in amusement -

…as C3PO nervously says “OH NO…” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to Yoda’s transport heading to ‘Dagobah’, as he goes into self-imposed exile -

NOTE - This deleted ‘Dagobah’ scene actually begins with slow pan to the left of the planet BEFORE the noise of Yoda’s transport comes into the shot, although I couldn’t find a pic of it…but I’m including a clip link below this as a reminder of how it looks and sounds in motion.

…as his transport lands, then opens up -

…and Yoda looks out -

…and we end on this shot -

Here’s the clip - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to a large balcony on Alderaan -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Because I’ve tried to give the impression that Padme didn’t recover to name her twins herself before she died, I’m going to assume that it was actually their respective adoptive parents who named the babies themselves.

…and then we continue on as normal, as Senator Bail presents his wife with a baby girl -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see the baby girl’s face -

…and we end on this ‘wipe’ shot to Obi-wan on Tattooine -

…as Obi-wan dismounts -

…and then meets up with Beru -

…as he hands the baby over to her -

…and we see the baby boy’s face -

…as Beru smiles -

…and Obi-wan smiles back at her -

…as Beru turns to take the baby over to Owen -

…while Obi-wan watches them for a moment, then turns to leave -

…as Beru shows Owen the baby -

…and they both turn to look in the distance -

…as they watch familiar twin suns, before we conclude on this ‘wipe’ shot to the end credits -

So that’s how I’d have chosen to keep Darth Vader’s suited appearance (and voice) unseen (and unheard) for myself, until his usual first entrance in A NEW HOPE…had I decided to start a saga ‘viewing order’ with the PREQUEL TRILOGY first.

NEXT UP, I’ll describe my proposed NEW OPENING for SOLO…

Okay, I’ve finally had time to go back and fill in all those slots I ‘reserved’ above to start things off properly now.  Feel free to comment on anything from here onwards (movie-related that is…)  I’ll continue adding loads of other trailers, old and new, when time allows.

Here’s a few more…

THE WAR OF THE WORLDS  (released 1953/directed by Byron Haskin)

Theatrical Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Imjio167nJo  NOW GONE!  Will look for replacement soon.

WAR OF THE WORLDS  (released 2005/directed by Steven Spielberg)

Teaser Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtqFbzCnG94  NOW GONE!  Will look for replacement soon.

Theatrical Trailer 1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqrdrBtGTeE  NOW GONE!  Will look for replacement soon.

Theatrical Trailer 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP42yAyC3YQ


NOTE - Just in case anyone happens to stumble across this old ‘Trailers’ thread of mine sometime, I’ve just temporarily used this space to put the following edit ideas/shots on here to remind myself about them at some point!
😃 -

INITIAL IDEAS FOR 1ST EPISODE OF ‘THE MANDALORIAN’ TV SHOW -

  1. I MIGHT change SILENT silver LUCASFILM logo to SHORTENED ‘fanfare’ version.

  2. DISCARD the ‘shiny characters’ line-up and ‘rainbow star wars’ logo, and instead ADD the SILENT ‘A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away’ blue wording BEFORE cutting to the ‘locator’ beeps and wind of the first shot.

  3. The blue ‘gillman’ alien guy was really annoying, and it would be tempting to cut the ENTIRE first part of the show to get rid of him…EXCEPT I really like some of the initial imagery, so I think it might be possible to DISCARD some of the scenes involving him, and cut directly to the close-up of the Mandalorian pushing him into the chamber to be ‘carbonised’! - POSSIBLY get rid of the CGI’D driverless golden speeder, and just cut to the rusty speeder with the driver after the SPY ALIEN plays his flute?

In the 2ND EPISODE, I might DISCARD everything before the Mandalorian and floating Yodaling walking towards us with the sun behind them (but keep THE MANDALORIAN title??), as they then come across the jawas stripping the ship…OR I MIGHT include initial start of episode where the Mandalorian fights off the Younglings attackers, and then CUT to them walking with the sun behind them (but keep THE MANDALORIAN title??)…while DISCARDING the whole scene of the Mandalorian attending to his wound as the Yodaling puppet tries to heal him.


MY NEW BEGINNING FOR ROGUE ONE -

START OFF with the familiar 20th Century Fox/Lucasfilm logos and fanfare of previous Star Wars movies -

(NOTE - I might just start off with the silent LUCASFILM LOGO and blue wording instead, seeing as these are merely ‘standalone’ stories outwith the MAIN SAGA storyline with Luke and co.)

NOTE - I NEED TO ADD A LOT MORE ‘FILLER’ SCREENSHOTS TO THIS, AND MIGHT MENTION THAT I ALWAYS TRY TO IMAGINE ANY SCENES I’M DISCARDING AS BEING LOST ‘DELETED SCENES’, TO SEE IF I’D REALLY HAVE WANTED TO INCLUDE THEM IF THEY’D BEEN NEWLY DISCOVERED!

TEST IMAGE LINKS FOR MY PREFERRED ‘ROGUE ONE’ EDIT INTRO POSSIBILITIES (THESE MAY NOT BE FINAL ORDER!) - (added 6th NOV. 2017 - sequence shots shortened to show beginning and end of scenes I have in mind) -

(ADDITIONAL NOTE to myself: the Screencaps site doesn’t include the 20TH CENTURY FOX logo or the ‘rainbow’ LUCASFILM logo, so I would just use the first 2 image links immediately below to show them instead) - ANOTHER ADDITIONAL NOTE to myself: To get any of these links to actually show as pics on this site, I need to add ![]( to the very beginning of them, and then ) at the very end too!

https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/theclonewiki/images/a/a1/Lucasfilm_logo.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20140912200117

  1. SILVER LUCASFILM LOGO (NOTE - the ‘Force Awakens’ version is larger)

(NOTE - I MIGHT possibly use the ‘colourful’ version instead of the ‘silver’ version…and I MIGHT go for a totally ‘hybrid’ intro. scene of my own which would go like this - 20TH CENTURY FOX logo and ‘FANFARE’ music begins/then instead of the LUCASFILM logo at this point, we’d see the STAR WARS title recede away to the rest of the ‘FANFARE’ music/then we’d see the LUCASFILM logo and the ‘A LONG TIME AGO…’ wording in silence, in the same kind of way that ROGUE ONE starts…OR ALTERNATIVELY…I MIGHT just keep the 20TH CENTURY FOX logo and LUCASFILM logo in their normal place with the ‘FANFARE’ music, and THEN have the STAR WARS title recede away in silence before we then see the ‘A LONG TIME AGO…’ wording in silence too…OR ANOTHER POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE…I MIGHT replace the 20TH CENTURY FOX logo with the receding STAR WARS title instead, as we then see the LUCASFILM logo, and then see the ‘A LONG TIME AGO…’ wording)

  1. A LONG TIME AGO… INTRO. WORDING (NOTE - the ‘Force Awakens’ version is larger)

(NOTE - I then MIGHT possibly put receding STAR WARS MAIN TITLE/static starfield over ROGUE ONE music/or SILENCE at this point instead!? - but see new idea above)

(NOTE - I won’t be including either the ROGUE ONE or SOLO ‘Main Titles’ in my edits of these ‘standalone’ movie spin-offs, due to the fact that I really dislike the weak look of the ROGUE ONE font, and because I’m DISCARDING the entire first 25 mins. of SOLO altogether, including it’s ‘Main Title’. I also dislike that the SOLO ‘main title’ includes the byline ‘A Star Wars Story’ but ROGUE ONE doesn’t, even though they are BOTH ‘standalone’ spin-offs - so the A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… wording effectively becomes the common ‘main title’ which introduces these ‘standalone’ storyline settings…so I’m just looking on these movies as being SUPPLEMENTARY to the ‘main saga’ for myself)

I’m intending to TOTALLY DISCARD all the various scenes that are seen BEFORE the ‘JEDHA IMPERIAL-OCCUPIED MOON/SAW’S GANG WITH BHODI’ scene (NOTE - SHOULD I LIST THEM TOO?), but here’s the movie’s current order of scenes shown AFTER that -

JEDHA IMPERIAL-OCCUPIED MOON/SAW’S GANG WITH BHODI…

…which transitions into WOBANI PLANET/IMPERIAL LABOR CAMP PRISON TRUCK RESCUE OF JYN ERSO…

…which transitions into SHIP HEADED TO YAVIN 4/REBEL ALLIANCE HEADQUARTERS/JYN’S INTERROGATION/SHIP LEAVING YAVIN 4…

…which transitions to SAW’S INTERROGATION OF ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ BHODI…

…which transitions to TIE FIGHTER APPROACHING STARDESTROYERS OVER DEATHSTAR/TARKIN’S DISCUSSING ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ WITH KRENNIC/TARKIN LOOKING OUT AT DEATHSTAR…

…which transitions to BLACKNESS/FLASHBACKS OF YOUNG JYN WITH HER PARENTS AND KRENNIC/GIVEN A PENDANT BY HER MOTHER/HUGGED BY HER FATHER/BALD SAW OPENING THE HATCH…

…which transitions to JYN SUDDENLY WAKENING UP TO LOOK AT HER PENDANT/LOOKING OUT AT JEDHA PLANET/LANDING ON JEDHA

NOTE - although I’m DISCARDING the ‘flashback’ scene altogether, I’m still deciding whether the rest of this current order of scenes sufficiently tells the story of the ‘defector pilot’ Bhodi well enough for me in this order, or not. If not, then I’m thinking about focusing on him more right from the start like this instead -

START OFF WITH THE USUAL 20TH CENTURY FOX/LUCASFILM LOGOS AND FANFARE -

OR -


NOTE - SEE THIS SITE FOR SIZE REFERENCE - https://logos.fandom.com/wiki/Lucasfilm/Other

CUT TO THE JEDHA IMPERIAL-OCCUPIED MOON FOR MY NEW OPENING, AS THE ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ BHODI IS THEN TAKEN TO MEET SAW’S GANG -

SCENE ENDS ON ‘PULL-BACK’ OF ‘JEDI ROCKS’ -

CUT TO CLOSE-UP OF SAW APPROACHING TO QUESTION BHODI -

BHODI IS TAKEN AWAY WHEN SAW ORDERS “BOR GULLET!” TO HIS GANG (NOTE - I originally WASN’T going to show the creature at all, but will probably include it in the new edited version I came up with to improve it for myself) -

TRANSITIONS TO A TIE-FIGHTER, AS KRENICK AND TARKIN DISCUSS THE ‘DEFECTOR PILOT’ ABOARD A STARDESTROYER NEAR THE DEATH STAR -

SCENE ENDS ON TARKIN LOOKING OUT AT THE DEATH STAR -

CUT TO WOBANI IMPERIAL PRISON PLANET AND JYN’S RESCUE FROM A TRANSPORT VEHICLE (NOTE - I’ll probably cut to the WOBANI planet shot rather than direcly to the transport vehicle…as it might seem as if the transport vehicle is supposed to be on the Death Star that Tarkin is looking at, if I just join those two shots together directly!) -

(REMOVE close-up shots of Jyn ‘suddenly sitting upright’ and ‘the sleeping alien’)

SCENE ENDS ON JYN BEING THROWN ON GROUND BY DROID -

TRANSITIONS TO YAVIN 4 AND JYN’S INTERROGATION BY REBELS -

END OF JYN GETTING INTERROGATED -

TRANSITIONS TO JYN AND CASSIAN ABOUT TO LEAVE REBEL BASE -

SCENE ENDS ON SHIP FLYING AWAY FROM YAVIN 4 -


  1. ROGUE ONE MAIN TITLE

(OR alternatively, place receding STAR WARS MAIN TITLE/static starfield over ROGUE ONE music/or SILENCE here instead!? - https://caps.pictures/197/7-starwars4/full/star-wars4-movie-screencaps.com-3.jpg )

(NOTE - either way, I might decide to put MAIN TITLE immediately after No. 2 wording instead?)

NOTE - I MIGHT BE DISCARDING THE ‘ROGUE ONE’ AND ‘SOLO’ MAIN TITLES ALTOGETHER FOR MY VERSIONS, SO I’D CUT FROM THE SHOT OF TARKIN STARING AT THE DEATH STAR TO THE SHOT OF JYNN AWAKENING SUDDENLY INSTEAD, AS THE SHIP APPROACHES JEDHA - the choice I have to make is whether to KEEP the movie’s current order of scenes which give the impression that the REBELS know about the defector BEFORE the EMPIRE does (even though my opening scene has one of Saw’s men saying the Imperials will be looking for the defector - and also because I’m discarding the scene of Cassian being told about it by an informer)…OR to try and cut it in the way I’ve shown above - but this rests on the cut from the ship leaving Yavin 4 directly to the close-up shot of Jynn waking up suddenly working smoothly

ALTERNATIVELY - I COULD START WITH BHODI CAPTURED BY SAW’S GANG, WHICH TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL TO WOBANI PLANET AND JYN’S JAILBREAK, WHICH TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL TO YAVIN 4 AND JYN’S INTERROGATION…BUT CUT TO SAW’S LEGS AND THE BHODI’S INTEROGATION WHICH TRANSITIONS TO TARKIN ON THE DEATH STAR, AT THE END OF JYN’S INTERROGATION WHERE HER CLOSE-UP IS OFFERED FREEDOM…AND THEN CUT TO JYN AND CASSIAN WALKING IN THE BASE JUST AFTER THE SHOT OF TARKIN STARING AT THE DEATH STAR, AND ONCE THAT SCENE ENDS WITH THE SHIP ACCELERATING AWAY FROM YAVIN 4, I COULD THEN CUT TO THE CLOSE-UP OF JYN WAKING UP SUDDENLY AS THE SHIP APPROACHES JHEDDA

GO INTO WHY I’M NOT KEEN ON THE LACK OF FOX LOGO AND FANFARE TO KICK THINGS OFF, AND MIGHT SHOW THIS CARTOON IMAGE (should I also show the cartoony font saying ‘A Long Time Ago…etc.’ along with it, or not??) -

Mention this link about the 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare in my final description - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/why-disney-should-add-foxs-fanfare-back-star-wars-1067900

TRANSITIONS AS NORMAL to Wobani Imperial Prison Planet and Jyn’s rescue from a transport vehicle -

(REMOVE close-up shots of Jyn ‘suddenly sitting upright’ and ‘the sleeping alien’) NOTE - “Somebody wake up Hicks!”

Scene ends on Jyn being thrown on ground by droid -

CUT to close-up of Saw approaching Bhodi to question him -

(NOTE - I MIGHT end up putting the zoom-in on Saw’s hide-out first, if the audio blends in okay)

HD RELEASE LUCASFILM INTRO. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FNiyvy31ew

6th POST

Okay, I’m now going to describe how I’d like to see the beginning of ROGUE ONE done differently, but first, I’d like to discuss the new intro. layout that DISNEY came up with for their movies -

Like others at the time, I sorely missed the familiar 20TH CENTURY FOX logo and fanfare for a little extra bit of anticipation before the iconic blue A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… wording silently appeared to introduce the crescendo of the equally iconic STAR WARS main title and scroll theme…and found the new replacement to be very weak sauce and lacklustre in comparison. In addition to that, I also disliked the way the new silver LUCASFILM logo and blue wording were both reduced in size compared to the bigger versions previously seen at the start of THE FORCE AWAKENS.

So for my own viewing purposes someday, I’d much prefer to REINSTATE the 20th CENTURY FOX logo and fanfare at the start of THE FORCE AWAKENS, THE LAST JEDI, and THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, to restore some continuity throughout the Original Trilogy, Prequel Trilogy, and Sequel Trilogy ‘Skywalker saga’ movies for myself.

However, I’m content that the lack of fanfare intros./scrolls for the ‘standalone’ movies such as ROGUE ONE and SOLO helps to differentiate them from the ‘main 9-movie saga’ for myself anyway…although I’d prefer to give them a similar new silent intro. instead, which includes a certain ‘Star Warsy’ element which I really missed.

So here’s my proposed NEW OPENING for ROGUE ONE which I’d prefer to see - I had originally intended to COMPLETELY DISCARD ALL THE OPENING SCENES of the existing movie…and begin with the ‘the planet Jedha with the defecting cargo pilot and Saw’s gang’ instead…as I’m not too keen on the current opening, nor the fact that we start off with Jyn as a youngster, nor the fact that Captain Ando ruthlessly backshoots his defenceless contact when we first meet him - so I wanted to introduce the two main protagonists in a different way, and preferred to just have Captain Ando first appear at Jyn’s interrogation at the rebel base instead, seeing as it works as a good introduction to him, where he explains everything anyway.

HOWEVER, I eventually decided to start off with the two main protagonists rather than the defector after all, but WITHOUT Captain Ando killing his contact -

We START OFF with the SILENT silver LUCASFILM logo and blue wording -

(NOTE - I’d DISCARD the smaller logo and lettering that were seen in ROGUE ONE, as shown HERE and HERE , as I much prefer the larger versions that were seen in THE FORCE AWAKENS instead) - PUT THIS IN A BLUE BOX?

CUT to -

CUT to -

NOTE - IF YOU PLAY THESE ONE AFTER ANOTHER, YOU’LL GET A BETTER IDEA OF HOW THIS WAY LOOK -

  1. Silver LUCASFILM logo - https://streamable.com/0snvf

  2. Receding STAR WARS title - https://streamable.com/s9s6k

  3. Blue wording - https://streamable.com/esw0i

…and then we CUT* to the ROGUE ONE title -

NOTE - The ROGUE ONE title starts off much closer to us before it recedes away, so that we initially only see the letters showing ‘GUE O’ at first.

…and then we continue on as normal, as we get our first glimpse of Jyn -

…as she wakes and sits up, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - She is seen to sit a bit more upright than this shot below actually shows.

THIS IS JUST A POSSIBILITY, AS I MIGHT YET GO WITH THE FAMILIAR 20TH CENTURY FOX LOGO AND ‘RAINBOW’ LUCASFILM LOGO INSTEAD - Also, would I need begin the ‘theme’ music over some of the previous blue wording before the ‘ROGUE ONE’ title appears, or even just a little bit over blackness BEFORE the title appears??

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

NOTE - This is the point where I’d prefer to reposition some of the earlier footage I like from the start of the movie instead, as a way of revealing more of Jyn’s backstory from when she was younger.

FINAL NEW ROGUE ONE OPENING - ALSO SHOW HOW I WAS ORIGINALLY GOING TO START WITH ‘JEDI ROCKS’ SCENE WITH BHODI, THEN CONTINUE ON AS NORMAL UNTIL JYN IS THROWN ON GROUND BY TALL DROID, THEN CUT TO ‘ROGUE ONE’ TITLE AND THEME, THEN CUT TO SHIP TRAVELLING TO YAVIN 4 AND THE REBEL BASE - AS A ‘REPRISE’ OF THE THEME WORKED PRETTY WELL I THOUGHT.


6th POST

So here’s my proposed new opening for ROGUE ONE now.

There’s a LOT I like about this movie, but once again there’s plenty throughout I’d prefer to alter. However, the MAIN thing I would change for myself is the way the beginning was structured. My own preference would be to start off with Jyn as an adult, rather than as a child…and luckily, there’s a straightforward way to do this without scrapping all of the early scenes.

But before I start, I’d like to mention the opening title introduction to the movie first -

Like others, I really missed the familiar 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare, but to have it open SILENTLY without the usual STAR WARS title and scroll theme music too, felt really jarring at the time…and seemed pretty weak sauce compared to the triumphant introduction of previous entries in the franchise.

And on top of that, I didn’t care for the fact that the new silver LUCASFILM logo and it’s follow-up blue wording had been shrunk in size as seen here -

But I’m using ROGUE ONE to END my personal ‘Star Wars saga’ viewing order on, as I just look on it as an additional fun watch AFTER the ‘main’ 9-chapter ‘SKYWALKER’ storyline concludes…so I’m content for the likes of it and other ‘standalone’ movie storylines such as SOLO to start off less bombastically than the ‘main saga’ chapters do anyway, as a way to differentiate them somewhat.

However, I’d still prefer to alter the current opening intro a little for myself, to restore just a bit more of that ‘Star Warsy’ anticipation which I missed…and there are a couple of options which I’m considering -

One would go like this -

We START OFF with the familiar 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare

NOTE - I believe there’s a new Disney version of the logo without the ‘A News Corporation Company’ now, so I’d probably use that.

…but the fanfare would finish over the LARGER silver LUCASFILM logo which was seen in THE FORCE AWAKENS instead -

…before the blue wording silently appears and eventually fades away too -

…and at this point, the movie begins.

However, here’s an alternative version which I’m equally mulling over too…which I’ll use as the introduction to start off my alterations now -

We START OFF with the familiar STAR WARS title, as it SILENTLY recedes away from us and fades out -

…as the silver LUCASFILM logo silently appears -

…before the blue wording silently appears and eventually fades out too -

…and then we CUT* to the ROGUE ONE title as the main theme music kicks in -

NOTE - The ROGUE ONE title starts off much larger than shown in the shot above, as we only see the letters showing ‘GUE O’ when it first appears, and it also recedes much smaller than shown in the shot below.

…and then we continue on as normal, as the music fades away, and we get our first introduction to Jyn Erso -

…as a drip on her forehead wakes her up and she sits upright, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Jyn actually sits more fully upright than shown in the shot above.

ALSO - I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point of Jyn wiping her forehead - CLICK HERE , and I’d also prefer to discard the shot of her sleeping alien cellmate which then appears immediately after - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Jyn sitting upright, as she looks out her prison cell to see a stormtrooper guard walk past -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the music swells and we head to the RING OF KAFRENE TRADING OUTPOST -

…as we pan down to a busy marketplace, and get our first introduction to Cassian Andor -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point of the aliens at the food stall, to quicken the pace here slightly - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Cassian continuing to walk through the busy marketplace as a stormtrooper approaches -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Cassian turns to run down an alley, and meets up with a contact who’s nervously waiting to tell him some news from Jedha. The contact tells Cassian "AN IMPERIAL PILOT…ONE OF THE CARGO DRIVERS, HE DEFECTED YESTERDAY…HE’S TELLING PEOPLE THEY’RE MAKING A WEAPON…THE KYBER CRYSTALS, THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE FOR"

Then Cassian asks “WHAT KIND OF WEAPON?”, as the contact anxiously tries to leave saying “LOOK, I HAVE TO GO”

…as Cassian suddenly grabs him and shoves him back, demanding "WHAT KIND OF WEAPON?!"

…as the contact yells "A PLANET KILLER!"

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - This isn’t a biggie by any means, but I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point of the contact yelling “THAT’S WHAT HE CALLED IT!”, as he knocks Cassian’s hand away - CLICK HERE , because Cassian is then seen to still be holding the contact’s coat in the next shot immediately afterwards…and although the contact’s face is not lined up exactly between the two shots I’d join together instead, I reckon it would look less jarring in motion than seeing Cassian still holding his jacket after being shrugged off…as the contact is then seen to shrug off Cassian’s hand just afterwards anyway.

…and then we CUT* to Cassian taken aback as he says “A PLANET KILLER?..” in a hushed tone -

…as the contact shrugs Cassian’s hand off, saying “SOMEONE NAMED ERSO SENT HIM, SOME OLD FRIEND OF SAW’S”, as Cassian then says “GALEN ERSO!..”, then demands “…WAS IT?!” -

…as the contact says "I DON’T KNOW, THEY WERE LOOKING FOR SAW WHEN WE LEFT…"

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point where Cassian says “WHO ELSE KNOWS ABOUT THIS?” , and the contact replies “I HAVE NO IDEA” - CLICK HERE , and I’d also prefer to discard the shot which appears immediately after it too, where the contact says “IT’S ALL FALLING APART…SAW’S RIGHT…” - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to the contact loudly saying “…THERE’S SPIES EVERYWHERE!”, as two stormtroopers appear saying "WHAT’S ALL THIS?..C’MON, LET’S SEE SOME SCAN DOCS"

…as Cassian pretends to kneel down for his gloves, then turns around to shoot the stormtroopers -

…as his shocked contact says “NO…WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!”, while people at the the end of the ally react, and Cassian looks for a way out -

…as people flee the area -

…as a stormtrooper appears at the end of the alley, and reports “TROOPERS DOWN, SECTOR NINE!” -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point of the contact saying “I’LL NEVER CLIMB OUT OF HERE, MY ARM!” - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to several stormtroopers running through the crowds, saying “GET OUT OF THE WAY…MOVE,MOVE!” -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the scene which appears at this point of Cassian saying “CALM DONW, CALM DOWN…IT WILL BE ALRIGHT” as he then back-shoots his unsuspecting contact - CLICK HERE, as that put me right off his character from the start when he did that. When Cassian has no choice but to escape himself, I’d rather have seen him just having to leave his unfortunate contact to an uncertain fate, instead of ruthlessly backshooting him…as I wanted to like his character better during this first impression of him, and he was already a ‘badass’ after shooting the two stormtroopers.

…and then we CUT* to a close-up of Cassian tucking his blaster away as an alarm blares -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the beginning of the shot which appears at this point of Cassian looking down - CLICK HERE , and just start from the point where he’s already turned to make his escape, which will give the impression that he’s just having to leave his contact behind to his fate.

…and then we CUT* to Cassian starting to make his getaway, as the music rises and he climbs out of the alley -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we head to the JEDHA IMPERIAL-OCCUPIED MOON, where the defecting cargo pilot Bhodi is captured by Saw’s gang -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we head to the WOBANI IMPERIAL PRISON PLANET and a large transport vehicle appears -

…as we see that Jyn is now aboard the vehicle in chains along with other prisoners -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d discard the shot which appears at this point of Jyn suddenly sitting upright instead of leaning forward like her other shots - CLICK HERE , and I’d also discard this close-up of the alien which then appears immediately afterwards too - CLICK HERE , as I’d prefer to make it look like the prisoner opposite Jyn is looking over at the stormtrooper guards at this point instead.

…and then we CUT* to the stormtrooper guards -

…as Jyn is looking back and forth, until the transport vehicle suddenly jolts to a halt -

…as a stormtrooper guard says “WHAT NOW?” as he stands up, and another stormtrooper replies “I DON’T KNOW, MUST BE ANOTHER PICKUP” -

…as the stormtrooper guard says “I THOUGHT WE HAD EVERYBODY”, as he reacts to a knocking sound, and turns around -

…as armed rebel troops board the transport vehicle -

…and the rebels identify Jyn as ‘Liana Hallik’, and free her from her chains. Jyn then proceeds to attack the rebels with a handy shovel, and then runs towards the transport vehicle door to escape -

…as a tall droid stops her, and throws her to the ground -

…as the tall droid says “CONGRATULATIONS, YOU ARE BEING RESCUED…PLEASE DO NOT RESIST” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we head to YAVIN 4 and the REBEL ALLIANCE BASE -

…as Jyn is taken into the rebel base for questioning -

…and we continue on as normal, as we learn a lot of information about Jyn’s background when she is initially spoken to by General Draven, Mon Mothma, and Captain Cassian Andor -

General Draven speaks saying “YOU’RE CURRENTLY CALLING YOURSELF LIANA HALLIK. IS THAT CORRECT? POSSESSION OF UNSANCTIONED WEAPONS. FORGERY OF IMPERIAL DOCUMENTS. AGGRAVATED ASSAULT. ESCAPE FROM CUSTODY. RESISTING ARREST. IMAGINE IF THE IMPERIAL AUTHORITIES HAD FOUND OUT WHO YOU REALLY WERE, JYN ERSO. THAT IS YOUR GIVEN NAME, IS IT NOT? JYN ERSO, DAUGHTER OF GALEN ERSO. A KNOWN IMPERIAL COLLABORATOR IN WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT.”**

…as Mon Mothma then tells Jyn it’s a chance for her to make a fresh start, and that they think that she can help them…as she then introduces Captain Cassian Andor who proceeds to question Jyn…who tells him that she hasn’t seen her father since 15 years, and that Saw Gerrera saved her life when she was a child, and raised her…but that she hasn’t seen him since years.

…and we also find out that the rebels want her to help them to meet with Saw, to get access to the ‘Imperial defector’ to confirm his story about the weapon, and to try and locate Jyn’s father and bring him back to testify about it to the Senate.

…as Jyn and Cassian walk towards a ship where the tall droid K-2SO is already aboard, as General Draven calls Cassian over to quietly order him to ignore what was said about taking Galen Erso back, and that he’s to kill him instead if he finds him.

…and then we continue on as normal, as Cassian, Jyn, and K-2SO fly off on their mission -

…and then we continue on as normal, as a pair of metal legs approach, and we hear the words “LIES…DECEPTIONS!” -

…as we get our first introduction to Saw Gerrera who suspiciously confronts Bhodi -

…as Saw orders “BOR GULLET!” to his gang, and Bhodi is hooded again and taken away -

…and then we continue on as normal, as a TIE Fighter screams past, and a stardestroyer comes into view in front of the Death Star -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Krennic approaches Tarkin on a stardestroyer, where Tarkin discusses the missing cargo pilot and the need for an immediate test of the weapon…and that failure will find him explaining why to a far less patient audience -

…as Krennic says “I WILL NOT FAIL”, then turns to leave, as Tarkin looks out at the Death Star -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the screen momentarily goes black before the first part of Jyn’s ‘flashback’ dream of past times with her parents begins -

…as Jyn’s father Galen comes over to Jyn saying "WHAT’S THE MATTER JYNA?..ARE YOU AFRAID?"

…and then we continue on as normal, as Galen playfully lifts her up and puts her to bed saying “I’LL ALWAYS PROTECT YOU” -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to have Saw with a headful of hair right from the start, as I found the transformation of him starting out as completely bald to then having an abundance of hair to be quite jarring…so I’d discard the rest of the ‘flashback’ shots which appear at this point which end with his bald appearance opening the hatch - CLICK HERE …and would replace them with an alternative, EXTENDED ‘flashback’ at this point instead…as a way of revealing a devastating aspect of Jyn’s past, while allowing me to include important footage and dialogue from the opening which I liked, but didn’t want to start the movie off with.

…and then we CUT* to another time with Jyn as her ‘flashback’ dream takes a turn for the worse, as a black ship screams downwards towards a planet -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point of the ship flying over the beach…as well as it’s flyby past the working droid…and the close-up of the droid - CLICK HERE , CLICK HERE , and CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to young Jyn running frantically as the black ship passes overhead -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see the black ship on a monitor screen -

…as Jyn’s concerned father and mother look on -

…and Jyn eventually reaches her homestead -

…as she says “MAMA!” on entering -

…and her mother Lira says “WE KNOW” -

…as her father Galen tells her “JYN, GATHER YOUR THINGS, IT’S TIME”, and they all hurriedly rush to grab some belongings -

…as Lira rushes towards a monitor in the kitchen area and looks over at Jyn -

…as the monitor beeps and an image appears, and we hear a male voice urgently say “HELLO” -

…as Lira turns to the monitor saying “SAW!”, and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Luckily for my purposes, bald Saw is indistinct in the shot above due to the angle of the monitor, as I’d prefer to discard the close-up shot of the monitor which appears immediately after at this point, where Lira says “…IT’S LIRA, IT HAPPENED…HE’S COME FOR US” - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Jyn looking towards her mother, as we hear Saw advise “YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the black ship turns to land -

…and we end on this shot as we hear Jyn’s father Galen say “JYNA, COME HERE…” -

…and continues to say “REMEMBER, WHATEVER I DO…I DO IT TO PROTECT YOU…SAY YOU UNDERSTAND” -

…as Jyn says “I UNDERSTAND” -

…and Galen says "I LOVE YOU STARDUST"

…as Jyn says "I LOVE YOU TOO PAPA"

…and Jyn’s mother Lira says “GALEN…” -

…as Galen says “GO!” -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we continue on as normal, as several black troopers approach -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point of Krennic and the black troopers - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Galen on his own, as he heads outside -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Jyn and Lira run to hide -

…as Lira whispers “JYN…”, and pulls her behind a rock -

…as Lira says “YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO DON’T YOU?” -

…and Jyn nods silently, and Lira takes off her necklace -

…as Lira says “TRUST THE FORCE”, and gives Jyn her necklace -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard the shot which appears at this point of Krennic and the black troopers - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Galen walking towards the intruders -

…as Jyn stops running and decides to head back -

…as Krennic and the black troopers approach Galen -

…as Krennic says “YOU’RE A HARD MAN TO FIND GALEN…” -

…and continues to say “…BUT FARMING…REALLY?, A MAN OF YOUR TALENTS?” -

…as Galen says “IT’S A PEACEFUL LIFE” -

…and Krennic says “LONELY I IMAGINE” -

…as Galen says “SINCE LIRA DIED, YES” -

…and Krennic says “OH…”, as he walks forwards saying “OH…MY CONDONLENCES”, as he then turns to the black troopers ordering “SEARCH THE HOUSE!” -

…as Galen says “WHAT IS IT YOU WANT?”, and Krennic replies “THE WORK HAS STALLED…I NEED YOU TO COME BACK” -

…and Galen says “I WON’T DO IT KRENNIC” -

…as Krennic says “WE WERE ON THE VERGE OF GREATNESS, WE WERE THIS CLOSE…TO PROVIDING PEACE AND SECURITY FOR THE GALAXY” -

…and Galen says “YOU’RE CONFUSING PEACE WITH TERROR” -

…as Krennic says “WELL…YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE” -

…as the black troopers search Galen’s property -

…as Galen says “I’D BE OF NO HELP KRENNIC…MY MIND JUST ISN’T WHAT IT WAS…” -

…and continues to say “…I’VE TROUBLE REMEMBERING…EVEN THE SIMPLE THINGS” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Jyn is crouched on the ground watching and listening -

…as Krennic says “GALEN…” -

…and continues to say “…YOU’RE AN INSPIRED SCIENTIST, BUT A TERRIBLE LIAR” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we see Lira approaching in the distance, as Krennic says “NOW I ADMIRE THE EFFORT…” -

…and continues to say “…I REALLY DO”, as he turns to notice Lira -

…as we see Lira getting closer, and Krennic says “OH LOOK…” -

…and continues to say “…HERE’S LIRA BACK FROM THE DEAD”, as Galen turns and runs towards her -

…and Krennic says “IT’S A MIRACLE!” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Jyn watches the black stormtroopers raise their guns at Galen -

…as Lira keeps running towards them -

…and Krennic raises his arm and shouts “STOP!” -

NOTE - And again this isn’t a biggie by any means, but there’s another slight continuity error here, so I’d prefer to discard this shot of Krennic which appears at this point, as his arm is suddenly down at his side - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Lira raising her concealed gun -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Krennic says “OH LIRA…TROUBLESOME AS EVER” -

…and Lira shouts “YOU’RE NOT TAKING HIM!” -

…as Krennic says “NO, OF COURSE I’M NOT, I’M TAKING YOU ALL…” -

…and continues to say “…YOU’LL ALL COME, YOU, YOUR CHILD, YOU’LL ALL LIVE IN COMFORT”, as Jyn keeps watching and listening -

…and Lira says “AS HOSTAGES” -

…as Krennic says “AS HEROES OF THE EMPIRE” -

…and Galen says “LIRA…PUT IT DOWN” -

…as Krennic warns “THINK VERY CAREFULLY”, as Galen and Jyn look on -

…and Lira says “YOU WILL NEVER WIN!” -

…as Krennic orders “DO IT!” to the stormtroopers, and they shoot Lira -

…and Lira’s gun shoots Krennic in the shoulder -

…as Jyn sees everthing, and Galen shouts “LIRA…NO!” and rushes over to her -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Krennic yells “THEY HAVE A CHILD!..”, and Jyn starts to flee -

…as Krennic orders “…FIND IT!” -

…and Galen holds his dead wife -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard these next two shots of young Jyn running away which appear at this point - CLICK HERE and CLICK HERE, to slightly quicken the pace here.

…and then we CUT* to Jyn running into a nearby cave -

…as she opens a hidden hatch and climbs in -

…and then shuts the hatch behind her -

…and then we continue on as normal, as black stormtroopers search for Jyn -

…as Jyn peers out a small gap -

…and two black troopers enter the cave -

…as Jyn continues to watch through the gap -

…and the two black troopers turn to leave -

…as Jyn stops watching, and climbs down a ladder -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard this shot of Jyn sitting on the floor which appears at this point - HERE

…and then we CUT* to the stormy exterior of the cave that young Jyn is hiding in -

…as Jyn shakes a lamp in the dark to get it to work properly -

…and then looks upwards when she hears someone approaching -

…as we hear footsteps getting nearer the hatch -

…and we end on this shot -

…and then we CUT* to the sound of the hatch opening as adult Jyn suddenly awakens from her ‘flashback’ dream aboard the ship, and looks at the ‘necklace’ her mother gave her -

NOTE - I’m content not to show that it was Saw who opened the hatch, as we already hear Jyn tell the rebels that he saved her life and raised her in this restructure…and we’ve also seen that Jyn’s mother contacted Saw earlier in the ‘flashback’ dream too…so we can reasonably assume that a younger (NON-bald preferably 😉 ) Saw came along and rescued young Jyn at that point, due to those reveals -

…and we then continue on as normal, as Cassian tells K-2SO that they’re coming into orbit, and to take the controls -

…as Jyn puts away her ‘necklace’ and looks out the window -

…as Cassian says “THAT’S JEDHA…OR WHAT’S LEFT OF IT!” -

…as Cassian says “WE FIND SAW…WE FIND YOUR FATHER”, and Jyn stares out the window as the music rises -

…as the ship flies over the surface of Jedha and lands -

…and then we continue on as normal, as the group approach Jedha city -

…and Cassian takes out his macrobinoculars -

…as Jyn says “WHAT’S WITH THE DESTROYER?” -

…and Cassian replies “BECAUSE OF YOUR OLD FRIEND SAW GERRERA…HE’S BEEN ATTACKING THE CARGO SHIPMENTS”, as he looks through the macrobinoculars -

…as Jyn asks “WHAT ARE THEY BRINGING IN?” -

…and Cassian says “IT’S WHAT ARE THEY TAKING OUT”, then passes her his macrobinoculars -

…as Jyn looks through them -

…and Cassian says “THE KYBER CRYSTAL…ALL THEY COULD GET…WE WONDERED WHY THEY WERE RESTRICTING THE TEMPLE…NOW WE KNOW…” -

…and continues to say “…IT’S THE FUEL FOR THE WEAPON” -

…as K-S20 adds “…THE WEAPON YOUR FATHER’S BUILDING” -

…and Jyn says “MAYBE WE SHOULD LEAVE TARGET PRACTICE BEHIND” -

…as K-S2O says “ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ME?” -

…and Cassian says “SHE’S RIGHT…WE NEED TO BLEND IN…STAY WITH THE SHIP” -

…as K-S2O says “I CAN BLEND IN…I’M AN IMPERIAL DROID…THE CITY IS UNDER IMPERIAL OCCUPATION” -

…and Jyn says “HALF THE PEOPLE HERE WANT TO REPROGRAM YOU…THE OTHER HALF WANT TO PUT A HOLE IN YOUR HEAD”, as Cassian give a wry smirk -

…and K-S20 says “I’M SURPRISED YOU’RE SO CONCERNED WITH MY SAFETY”, as Jyn says “I’M NOT…” -

…and continues to say “…I’M JUST WORRIED THEY MIGHT MISS YOU…AND HIT ME!”, as she hands him a bag -

…and Jyn walks past K-S20, as Cassian gives him a reassuring pat -

…and K-S2O says “DOESN’T SOUND SO BAD TO ME”, as he drops the bag to the ground -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we zoom-in towards Saw’s hide-out -

…where Bhodi is strapped to a chair and we hear a low gutteral roar -

…as the nightmare fuel that is ‘Bor Gullet’ slithers into view -

…and Bhodi looks scared as Saw says “BOR GULLET…CAN FEEL…” -

…and continues to say “…YOUR THOUGHTS”, as we see Bor Gullet’s eye -

…as Saw watches Bor Gullet getting closer to Bhodi, and says “NO LIE…” -

…and continues to say “…IS SAFE!” -

…as a tentacle reaches out at a terrified Bhodi -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d prefer to discard this close-up shot of Bor Gullet’s throbbing eye which appears at this point - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to the tentacles starting to wrap around Bhodi, as Saw says “WHAT HAVE YOU REALLY BROUGHT ME?..” -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d also prefer to discard this shot of the tentacles wrapping around Bhodi as Saw continues to say “…CARGO PILOT” which appears at this point - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to Saw saying “BOR GULLET…WILL KNOW THE TRUTH…” -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - I’d also prefer to discard this shot of the tentacles feeling Bhodi’s head which appears at this point - CLICK HERE

ADDITIONALLY - I’d also prefer to discard this shot of Saw saying “THE UNFORTUNATE SIDE EFFECT…IS THAT ONE TENDS…TO LOSE ONE’S MIND” which appears immediately after - CLICK HERE , as the first few words start off on the previous tentacle shot I want to get rid of.

…and then we CUT* to the engine roar of a cargo ship and TIE fighters flying over Jedha city, as Jyn and Cassian make their way through the city -

NOTE - I’d discard the first part of this shot of the old woman cooking which appears at this point - CLICK HERE , to avoid a continuity mismatch when I cut to another shot featuring the same old woman soon after, where she’s suddenly sitting at another area.

…and then we CUT* to Jyn and Cassian making their way through the bustling city -

…and we end on this shot -

NOTE - Due to VARIOUS reasons, I’d definitely discard the entire scene of Jyn bumping into the argumentative ‘bad duo’ of Doctor Evazan and Ponda Baba from A NEW HOPE’s Mos Eisley cantina which appears at this point, and ends on this shot as we hear an announcement saying “CITIZENS OF JEDHA…” - CLICK HERE

…and then we CUT* to an old woman sitting beside a hologram of Bhodi, as we hear an announcement saying “…YOU MUST COME FORWARD WITH INFORMATION OF THE LOCATION OF THIS MISSING CARGO PILOT…” -

…and then we continue on as normal, as we faintly hear the words continuing to say …“A REWARD OF 600 CREDITS FOR ANY INFORMATION SHALL BE AWARDED”, and Jyn and Cassian continue to make their way through the city -

NOTE - Although Jyn and Cassian now end up walking on the other side of each other, I’m content that in motion it looks as if Cassian ends up starting to move to the other side of Jyn during the hologram shot of Bhodi, due to the way they’ve had to move past other people at this point.

…and we continue on as normal, as Jyn and Cassian continue on their way through the city -

So that’s the way I’d like to see the beginning of this particular movie play out for myself, and one day over the coming weeks I’ll get around to showing how I’d prefer to tweak the way it ends too.

In the meantime, since THE RISE OF SKYWALKER is due for release shortly…I thought it might be fun to describe the scenario I’ve got in mind to alter the most problematic entry in the entire ‘saga’ for myself…so THE LAST JEDI is up NEXT.

ADD MORE SHOTS HERE AS THEY DISCUSS HAN STEALING COAXIUM AND THEM WANTING TO GET AWAY FROM CORELLIA

NOTE - SHOULD I END ON THIS SHOT OF HAN AS HE SAYS “???”, OR SHOULD I END ON THE SHOT OF KIRA SPEAKING JUST AFTERWARDS? - https://i0.wp.com/caps.pictures/201/8-solo/full/solo-movie-screencaps.com-281.jpg?strip=all

47 NOTES TO SELF - is it possible to REMOVE this ‘group’ shot and just cut to the Falcon?? (the positioning of everyone is suddenly different!) SLIGHT POSSIBILITY - How would putting the ‘BROOM BOY’ end scene work here?? Would start at the point he comes out to ‘Force-grab’ the broom, and end on close-up of his face after he’s seen a ship accelerate past - so this would allow a ‘time gap’ before returning to the ‘group’ shot (where everyone is positioned differently), and allow for all the re-positioning better. Would all the music in these scenes match well??

then we end on Falcon travelling in hyperspace -

…After ‘Group’ shot and Falcon flying shot ends in a white flash…I’d then CUT to the scene of Kylo getting his helmet fixed, then returning to his Stardestroyer in his TIE, as his Knights of Ren follow him down a corridor (THIS IS A WAY OF DOUBLING DOWN ON THE FACT THAT KYLO ISN’T GONNA CHANGE TO THE LIGHT SIDE AND BE REDEEMED!) -

…and we end on this shot as the music stops immediately before the stormtrooper speak -

…and then we continue on as normal, as dawn breaks again on a familiar island which slowly comes into view -

…After ‘Group’ shot and Falcon flying shot ends in a white flash…I’d then CUT to the zoom-in towards Luke’s island…and then CUT to him telling Rey he has something Leia wanted her to have, and then end on the close-up of her looking at Leia’s hidden lightsaber -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJrd6cyN8rw

…and then I MIGHT CUT to Vader’s burnt mask being touched by Kylo who closes his eyes and then sees a flashback of him killing Han (it’s possible to cut 2 or 3 shots together to do this!) -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSxrrVgks-A

…and IF I do that, then I’d next CUT to Kylo’s broken mask pieces being thrown down, as we see it being put together again, and then he travels with his Knights of Ren to his Stardestroyer, and he rounds a corridor with them -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSPr9h55IGA

…and then I’d CUT to the Falcon travelling to Tattooine, as Rey looks around Luke’s homestead and buries the lightsabers before igniting her own, meeting the old lady, and looking at the setting suns with BB-8 -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xo2pjiwh8pk

…and then we CUT to a close-up of ‘Forceghost’ Luke speaking to Rey -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey pulls a rock out -

8 still to add MORE pics here

9 still to add MORE pics here

…and we continue on as normal, as we ‘flashback’ to a training session between young Luke and Leia -

15 CUT TO LEIA OPENING HER MASK HERE?? (to get rid of dialogue about her son, or should I keep it in??)

…and then we continue on as normal, as Leia looks at Leia’s lightsaber (add what Luke is saying) -

…and then we CUT to the Falcon arriving at Tattooine -

26 …and we continue on as normal, as Rey emerges from the Falcon -

28 put more close-up pics of rey and bb8 leaving falcon here. This was the final shot below -

29 first wide shot of landed Falcon -

…and then we continue on as normal, as Rey looks over the edge -

NOTE - I might end up cutting from her staying “Rey…” immediately to her close-up below of her then saying “…Rey Skywalker!” (James Bond-like)

NOTE - mention in a ‘blue box’ description, that I’d DISCARD the next shot below of the old woman asking “Rey who?” -

https://i2.wp.com/caps.pictures/201/9-swriseofskywalker/full/swrise-starwarsscreencaps.com-15582.jpg?strip=all

…then CUT to a close-up pan towards Rey saying “Rey Skywalker!” (James Bond-like), as the music starts to swell -

NOTE: THERE’S 5 WAYS I COULD GO WITH THIS -

  1. GO WITH ALL OF ORIGINAL ENDING (INCLUDES LUKE AND LEIA)

  2. ONCE OLD WOMAN THEN ASKS REY WHO?..CUT TO CLOSEUP OF REY SAYING REY SKYWALKER AS MUSIC SWELLS (MISSING OUT LUKE AND LEIA)

  3. ONCE OLD WOMAN WHO ARE YOU?..CUT TO CLOSEUP OF REY SAYING REY SKYWALKER AS MUSIC SWELLS (MISSING OUT OLD WOMAN ASKING REY WHO? AS WELL AS MISSING OUT LUKE AND LEIA)

  4. ONCE OLD WOMAN ASKS WHO ARE YOU?..CUT TO REY SAYING REY…THEN IMMEDIATELY CUT TO CLOSE OF REY SAYING REY SKYWALKER - JAMES BOND LIKE (MISSING OUT OLD WOMAN ASKING REY WHO? AS WELL AS MISSING OUT LUKE AND LEIA)

  5. ONCE OLD WOMAN ASKS WHO ARE YOU?..CUT TO REY LOOKING AROUND TO LEIA AND LUKE BEFORE EVENTUALLY SAYING REY SKYWALKER (MISSING OUT OLD WOMAN ASKING REY WHO?) - THIS ONE MIGHT BE THE BEST, I’M NOT SURE YET.

11

NOTE - just put J.J. ABRAMS end title here instead??
