ROTS

Taking the usable deleted scenes and making the longest possible cut of ROTS

  • Added some banter with Obi-Wan and Anakin while taking an elevator on the Invisible Hand
  • Added a new line from Dooku before the duel
  • Extended scene with Palpatine telling Anakin that he is taking control of the Jedi Council and making adjustments to the constitution
  • Added Windu, Kenobi and Yoda discussing what Palps is doing, and that there may be a plot to destroy them
  • Added scene with Bail, Padme and other senators discussing a course of action against Palps
  • Added another scene of senators saying they need to form an alliance in the Senete against Palps
  • Added the senators confronting Palps, and that a return to democracy is needed
  • Trim scene in Jedi War Room as dialogue is repeated from restored Windu/Yoda/Kenobi scene
  • Added 3 lines from The Clone Wars episode “Voices” to restore Qui-Gon Jinn’s voice to Yoda’s meditation
  • Added Yoda exiling himself to Dagobah

SOURCES

  • 2011 Blu-Ray: For the film and two deleted scenes (Banter and Constitutional Adjustments)
  • 2005 DVD: For the majority of the deleted scenes, upscaled by Hal9000 and DrDre
  • “Epic” Trailer: A new shot of Palpy’s shuttle is taken from here
  • PS2 Game: For the new Dooku shot and dialogue, and an extra Grevious line in the Shaak Ti scene
  • The Clone Wars: The Qui-Gon voiceover is borrowed from S06E11 “Voices” as Liam Neeson reprises the role
  • TM2YC’s ROTS Reborn: Recreated his Shaak Ti scene structure’
  • Hal9000’s Labyrinth of Evil: Recreated his integration of the “Plot to Destroy the Jedi” scene
  • Octoroz’s Extended Edition: Main video source for the edit as well as his integrations
  • ROTS Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Used a few of the tracks to rescore some of the deleted scenes
  • SFX from a few sources to replace sounds in rescored scenes or add some where there never were any

Advantage

Adjustments

Here’s something that would probably be used in a workprint, Qui-Gon talks to Yoda. I took a bunch of lines out of the Clone Wars episode “Voices” and edited around them to add reverb and some new music. The scene with finished VFX only has a few of these lines.

Added the “Plot to Destroy the Jedi” scene before the Council scene and after the Palps/Anakin scene

This looks fantastic! Revenge of the Sith has always been my favorite movie in the saga, and it looks like this is the definitive extended edition. I would greatly appreciate a link to this project!

The project isn’t done yet as I’m still tinkering with stuff.

Speaking of which, I had a look at TM2YC’s Reborn edit, and he included a great truncated version of the Shaak Ti death scene that excludes any of the fuel tank stuff with unfinished VFX. Is this something that should be added?

I like the scene but you’d have to cut some of the banter between Grievous and Anakin/Kenobi when they get captured.

“You’re shorter than I expected!”
“What? Did you already forget what I looked like from fifteen minutes ago when I executed Shaak Ti?”

It also obviously precludes you from implementing the scene where Anakin kills Shaak Ti. That scene does have the problem of suggesting Shaak Ti doesn’t sense any of Order 66 going on around her, though, and requires some not insignificant AE work to clean it up.

I think the height joke works as a snappy comeback to Grevious’ age joke. I don’t think I’d cut it.

And as much as I’d like to use some portion of the 2nd Shaak Ti death (namely the 2nd part of him walking through the Jedi Temple carnage) it’s way too unfinished to work at all.

Here’s my own version of the 1st Shaak Ti death, I didn’t trim as much, just the reference to them landing as it fixes the continuity.

Shaak

I was thinking about putting the Shaak Ti scene like this instead but I have no idea if it’d work

CURRENT
Jedi in hanger -> Shaak Ti Death -> Grevious on bridge (trimmed) -> Elevator

NEW
Jedi in the hanger -> Grevious on bridge (uncut) -> Shaak Ti death -> Elevator

It would remove the need to cut the references to the Jedi landing, and is also how the shooting script is structured too. Unsure if the two scene would work back to back cause of the shots, but I’ll test that too

That looks pretty seamless.I think it fits quite nicely.

Looks good! That was the one scene I was wondering if you would be able to put back in. Although definitely feel free to try out that other order to see if it works out.

This is a really cool project. I definitely wouldn’t mind if it supplanted my Extended Edition!

That’s a really good take on reimplementing that, wow. Although, this being an expanded edition, I wanna say it would be more appropriate to cut as little as possible, thus trying to get the latter order if it can work out. Plus Grievous’ initial introduction moment I think is better as is, it’s much more of an “introduction” shot, complete with his theme

Here’s the alt cut, not 100% clean, but it has some new score compared to the other one and is trimmed differently.

Shaak

The Jedi Imposer scene that will be used in a workprint cut of the film. Now it has some exciting score and flows into the surrounding scenes, still unfinished however.

I honestly prefer the old order of things when it comes to the Shaak-Ti scene. It seems strange that Grievous magically teleports from the bridge to where Anakin and Obi-Wan are in a matter of seconds.

Okay, regarding the Shaak Ti death scene… HOW DID THEY MANAGE TO AVOID AN ‘R’ RATING WITH THAT SHOT???

Because it wasn’t in the movie, that’s why. Who knows, maybe that was part of the reason it got deleted.

I’ve been considering using some Grevious lines from the game to replace the redunant lightsaber collection line and tried out a few here.

Thoughts?

I can audibly tell when the sound bites occur (presume that’ll eventually be smoothed over), but yeah, that was timed well

Do you prefer either line (the pathetic one or the lightsaber one)

The “You Jedi are all the same” line is better because the other line implies that they are using their light saber, even though they’re just standing there.

I’ll have a go at smoothing it over then, with a few changes to the scene structure once more, trying to fix the teleportation of Grevious. I think I’m okay with it as that is how it’s scripted, but I haven’t found a satisfactory way to fix it as of yet.

I’ll go with the “pathetic” line, it sounds more confrontational

Yes, the “You Jedi are all the same” and “pathetic” are both parts of the same line.

Might there be any way at all to indicate passage of time with some additional shot inbetween?

Yes, I do believe there is a couple of unused space battle shots. I’m going to try looking for it on YouTube.
