I released a pretty standard fan edit of ROTJ a couple of years ago, but since then I’ve been playing around with a much more extreme edit. Instead of just cutting the stuff I didn’t like I’ve also rearranged scenes and tried to also add footage to address some of the film’s weaknesses.
Here are some of the major changes:
Dagobah has been put to the start
Luke and Leia aren’t related
The conflict between Luke and Vader has been brought to the fore with new scenes and re-edited existing scenes
There’s a new Boba Fett subplot. He’s sent to Endor by Vader and told to capture Luke. When Luke gives himself up to Vader, Fett decides to go and kill Han.
The following deleted scenes have been added: lightsaber scene, sandstorm scene, bunker scene, Jerjerrod’s conflict
Lots of footage taken from fan films, including: Vader Extincion, Revelations, Makazie One and Wrath of the Mandalorian
Here are the first few minutes (password is wordpass):
