Ladies and gentlemen, it's with great pleasure I am releasing my fan edit, 'Star Wars: Episode 1: Army of the Republic'


To be completely honest, I felt it would be easiest to start with the fan edit by HAL 9000, known as ‘The Approaching Storm,’ as a foundation for further editing; just to get that out of the way.

  • Fanedit name: ‘Star Wars: Episode 1: Army of the Republic’
  • Original work: ‘Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones’
  • Fanedit release date: October 26, 2023
  • Original runtime: 2:22:27
  • New runtime: 2:00:26
  • Type of fan edit: Feature
    Change List:
  • Light blue, instead of yellow, Star Wars logo and text crawl.
  • Re-written text crawl.
  • Text fades in showing which planet we are on now.
  • Added in lightsaber duel from ‘Kenobi’ series.
  • Cut out as much Jar-Jar as I could, but I realized that his request for emergency powers for Palpatine is important, so I ended up keeping that.
  • Cut scene of Zam Wesell deploying her droid, so the killer worms can be more of a surprise.
  • Implemented “Grandmaster’s Jam Session” from ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ into the night club scene to add to the alien nightlife type of environment.
  • Added in scene of droid analyzing toxic dart; Obi-Wan’s line “I know who can identify this” has a good lead-in to the next scene, in my opinion.
  • Cut scene of Anakin and Padme basically arguing politics; in the original film, there are so many things that, as an adult, made me wonder how these two could end up together, and this was one of them.
  • Right after Anakin’s montage of searching for his mother, Shmi Skywalker, there’s more of a hard cut to the next scene; I felt that would be more appropriate than the traditional SW wipe transition.
  • Right when Anakin begins to strike back at the Tusken Raiders, there’s a hard cut instead of a wipe; I felt it would be more appropriate and hit harder.
  • In the scene of Republic Senators overlooking the clone troopers, I used “Vode An” in the soundtrack. It’s an epic Mandalorian song, and I feel like it fits with the Mandalorian background of Jango Fett; plus, I feel like it fits with the dramatic anticipation of going into full-scale galactic warfare.
  • Last but not least, inserted a teaser intro for Ahsoka Tano in a way that I think would be a little cheeky.

That should cover all of the changes.

I understand if my fan edit may or may not be one of the popular ones.

At the end of the day, I’m simply trying to have fun and make what I would like.

Thank you for understanding! 😃
