Here’s the third edit of my (probably) full 1-6 saga edit.
First things first, Revenge of the Sith is one of my favourite SW movies. I’ve never been a PT hater. This trilogy is surely worse than the OT, but I never found it horrible, not at all.
I always loved the political aspect of it, the scale of these movies, and most of the acting performances (mostly McGregor, Portman and McDiarmid).
The only things that I really didn’t like about this trilogy are:
- It looked way too different from the OT.
- The two main plot twists (Vader in ESB and Leia in ROTJ) are ruined, if you watch the movies in episodic order.
Just as with the other two edits, I’ll try to fix it.
Right now I don’t have a complete changelist, as I’m just working on the new crawl, but the movie will have a complete color correction. It will probably be less strong than the one in Episode II, because in my EpII edit the CC in some parts was just too much.
Just as in the previous edits, I’ll add other music tracks wherever I can. And I’ll try to hide the “Anakin becomes Darth Vader” point. If I will work on ANH and ESB, I’ll surely remove any mention by Obi Wan about Vader being his apprentice.
Anakin will actually turn to the Dark Side, because I don’t think it would work to kill him off before that (I am uncapable of working with VFX, but even if I could make it look like Anakin dies in the Jedi Temple attack, killing off the main character off screen would suck, cinematically speaking).
I’m still wondering about keeping or removing the Yoda-Palpatine fight scene. If I can make it more grounded, I will keep it. Otherwise, that’s gone. I’d like to keep it, because it would sound ridiculous for the strongest Jedi ever to run away and not even try to fight the supreme bad guy…
Anyway, more details coming soon 😉
