Hi all,
I’ve been working on this edit for some time now and after a little bit of tweaking and finalising i now feel it’s finally finished and ready to share with you guys.
The edit is around 2 hours 20mins and is structured very much like a Star Wars movie.
So what have I changed:
Episode one is condensed down to about 20 mins, flashbacks are gone as I felt it strange that obi wans memory of events would be in movie form! It’s like he’s dreaming about the Star Wars prequel movies 😂
Also I’ve removed the Jawa scene and the obi wan meeting the Jedi at night.
I’ve also condensed alot of leia’s scenes, we now first meet her when the guests are arriving on the shuttle and finish with her running into her kidnappers! There is no chase scene at all.
Removed obi wan getting the lightsabers! Instead he goes immediately after bail organas visit.
Episodes 2 also condensed to around 20 mins. I shaved a lot from this episode but kept the rescue of Leia and the meeting of haja scene.
With Episode 3 I’ve kept this episode mainly in tact except for a few unnecessary scenes.
Episode 4 has been heavily edited I’ve removed the Leia interrogation scene completely and a lot of the tala dialogue has been removed including the ‘you will address me as sir’
Episodes 5 and 6 are mostly intact apart from a few changes and cuts!
the flashback scenes of obi wan and anakin are now one long scene rather than many small ones I felt this helped the pace of the movie and Reva is presumed dead after the Vader battle she does not go after Luke, also Ben meeting Luke is gone instead we see him pack the toy as if he is on he’s way to the homestead at the end, I did not really want to cut this scene but felt Owens bruised and batterd face and body made no sense with the removal of the Reva revenge scenes.
Added music where needed for transitions.

Sounds good! Couple questions that get into minutia.

Since you removed Ben digging up the sabers, so we still get Reva saying that the reason she thinks he’ll come to rescue Leia is because he fought under Bail during the Clone Wars?

How do you handle Lola? Do we see her get broken, Leia demonstrates emotion toward her in the alleyway (and Ben softens his attitude toward her), and Ben fixes her?

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

Hi Hal, Yes we do get the dialogue between reva and the grand inquisitor about kenobi’s link to bail.
we do not see Lola get broken, the first time we see Lola is when she reveals her to Ben already broken informing Ben that she was trashed by kidnappers.

Cool! Two moments I like: Ben and Bail’s connection and Ben having a dismissive attitude toward droids. Lol

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

I’m Still waiting for google drive to process the file at the moment, as it’s such a large file size it seems to be taking longer than usual. As soon as it’s ready I will share.

Hi this edit sounds great. I always thought the Obi Wan TV Show felt like a movie stretched out into 6 episodes. I’d love to check it out. Do you think I could get the link?

OT member Phase3 had a wonderful suggestion for altering the final duel in the Kenobi series so that we don’t end on Obi-Wan’s baffling choice to let Vader live. The basic idea is to move the burying obi-wan in rocks to the very end of the duel so that after Kenobi walks away from Vader with a sliced helmet, he screams out “Obi-Wan” then cracks the ground with the force, proceeding to bury Obi-Wan, walk away from the fight the victor. Then Obi-Wan climbs out and the fight is over.

If we can make this work, I think it would make the duel even more amazing than it already is (I quite enjoyed the fight outside of the nonsensical ending where Obi-Wan lets Vader live).

I created a mock-up of this idea. The changes so far:

-Reversing the flow of Kenobi retreating so it links smoothly to the later part of the duel.
-Flip shot of ground breaking for visual continuity.
-Removed Vader’s line “And that is why you will always lose” as he breaks the ground, rough sfx replaced (can be polished later)
-Cropped out vader of wide shot of ground breaking for visual continuity.
-Removed vader’s line “Did you really think you could defeat me?” after he buries him.
-Rearranged shots of Vader walking away for better flow

The one key change remaining to tie this whole idea together is somehow changing the final shots of the rock burying so that Vader’s helmet is still sliced in half. I don’t know who would have the special effects skills to do this but perhaps a community effort would achieve this.
