After 55+ hours of editing the Kenobi series, my movie cut is finally done! I started working on this as soon as the first episode got released. This gave me the time to really polish this edit and still be able to put it out not long after the show finished.
If you’ve seen any of my other STAR WARS edits you know what to expect here. By cutting the ‘out of character’ Kenobi scenes, out of place humor, bad over the top acting (Reva) and the annoying Lea stuff, I turned the series into a 1 hour and 45 minutes fast paced fun STAR WARS movie.
I did all that was possible to keep Obi Wan’s character in line with what we know about him from the original and prequel trilogy. The end result is a highly enjoyable Kenobi movie that I encourage any STAR WARS fan to watch.
To give you an idea of what was used and what was not here is a list of how many minutes per episode were used making this fanedit:
Episode 1 - used 17 minutes
Episode 2 - used 19 minutes
Episode 3 - used 25 minutes
Episode 4 - used 15 minutes
Episode 5 - used 12 minutes
Episode 6 - used 12 minutes
I will make a list with all the changes within a week or two but for now just go in fresh and enjoy the movie!
Besides the usual editing I also did some very much needed color grading on the Tatooine and Mapuzo scenes. Reframed some shots, did some shaky-cam stabilizing here and there and added some of John Williams score to give it that original STAR WARS feel.
