So it’s not June, but I finished writing my grad thesis and I’m feeling very fandom invigorated atm, so I’m gonna talk about v3 briefly.
First off, my SSD with my editing stuff on it is not working fully and I need to take it to get the data recovered. So all this will be a ways off.
First, I’m planning on releasing both a normal movie version and a version with opening and closing modeled after The Clone Wars: Refocused. Either way this is a version of Episode III that only works if you’ve watched Clone Wars. It’s just about presenting different watching options.
Onto the content:
I’m gonna be going in for more changes to the RotS NCC material.
1: Changing the focus of the Padme/Anakin reunion from her sharing the pregnancy to Pasne being worried he was dead and Anakin not wanting to hide the relationship. He sharing the pregnancy will be moved to the Bad Batch arc of TCW.
Here’s a rough cut of the Clone Wars scene:
2: Changing Anakin’s dreams from Padme dying in childbirth, to premonitions of Padme, Ahsoka, and Obi-Wan all in danger. This will also involve changing some of Anakin and Sidious’s dialogue. I think this is necessary because of how TCW emphasizes these relationships. Anakin has extreme response to these three in danger, that I think that the fear of losing all three would push him over the edge.
3: Adding back in Anakin talking to Yoda about his dream. I think him not getting any help from the council, who has repeatedly failed him when it comes to Obi-wan and Ahsoka, is a necessary push for his willingness to go to Sidious.
4: I also want to try replacing Anakin killing younglings with Anakin killing Shaak-ti. I think it’s possible to fix up that deleted scene and his anger is at the council and I think at this point in the story that’s where we should see it directed.
5: A few other minor nips and tucks to make it flow better and make it a more enjoyable experience. (I do really like having the 31/2hr movie so probably won’t change that,but other things…)
Anyway, hope you enjoy the tease. I’ll update my original OP soon.
