So, I really think this scene could slot in nicely in an AOTC edit, between the opening bombing and the scene in Palpatine’s office (or after the Senate deleted scene, if you use that). I think it gives a nice bit of extra context to Anakin’s frustrations with Obi-Wan, and it really shows off how skilled he is, which may make him seem like a bit less of a brat.
However there’s a lot that would need to be addressed about the scene to make it fit in stylistically with Attack of the Clones. These include:
-De-aging on Anakin to match his appearance in AOTC.
-A New Color Grade to match AOTC (preferably the HDTV version) Ideally, it would probably be better to work from 10-bit HDR but I used an 8-bit SDR version since the deaged clips I found were also SDR.
-Particularly shaky shots will need to be stabilized to better match George Lucas’s style of cinematography. (The battle on Geonosis actually has some handheld shots but they are used pretty sparingly)
-A brand new 5.1 sound mix with appropriate John Williams music and new foley.
To start, I’ve cut the scene together and used AI software to isolate the dialogue. This effectively removes the music but unfortunately also means the foley will need to be built from the ground up. I’ve also borrowed some de-aged shots from the YouTuber Darth Porg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhPmdlUuwOI
There are others out there but I thought these looked pretty good.
Here is the clip in full 4K ProRes for those who’d like to tinker, it’s a large file. While AOTC was shot in 1080p, the 4K gives more latitude to crop and stabilize shots: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1joyQ5fIUGD57AtC8TI9Slx0Y0zasQdj-/view?usp=sharing
