The prequels will also be erased from the saga now that i am no longer doing them. I just can’t bring myself to ever watch them again. The prequel references added to ANH:R will be gone for the HD version (The battle droid added into the sandcrawler scene was only added as in in-joke anyway. Left in a junk pile 😉 ). I no longer have to worry about fixing anything in the OT that contradicts those films. And, even if by some miracle i do decide to do them, i’ll fix the problems in those instead. So no biggie. But, for me, I’d like to start my viewing with Rogue One, followed by the OT, then the ST , as those films are far superior to the PT. Those are the only parts i would like to fit together now. Although you’d probably still be able to watch the prequels with Revisited because nothing i’m doing really contradicts those anyway ( plus i may still be adding the “you’re Mother once thought as you do” line instead of the original "Obi-Wan). That’s just my personal opinion of the PT and i appreciate that there are fans out there that like them, so i wouldn’t really want to make Revisited so you couldn’t watch the PT too if you wanted to.
I doubt anybody will complain about the Battledroid scrap if you keep it in. Even if you ignore the PT it’s now just a extra bit of detail in the background brightening the place up a bit. Removing any trace of Battle of the Heroes from the DS duel is good, I love that music too much and it is not the right track for two bitter old men finding each other again.
However some references are too good to change, the updated DS plans animations and the holo-displays on Yavin for example. Maybe remove the blue Naboo-like detailing around the plans animation but the idea of the old style (from Rogue One and the origional ANH) being a ‘DVD cover’ type thing with your animation underneath would be the absalute best way to do it. And the holograms make the Battle of Yavin feel far more active or frantic than the little moving red pie chart.
I also think Vader should still have his eyebrows gone. He’s more machine now than man, he should look it. To the people saying it humanises him? Well we don’t really need that because there’s two other things that do that, the lack of yellow eyes and his appearance as a ghost later (which I also think should be Shaws head on Haydons costume and not a copy ‘n’ paste of Obi Wans costume), both of which I think are far more humanising than giving a man in a face-hugging airtight mask extra places for sweat to accumulate.
Also, unrelated to PT stuff, I hate all the dancing and singing in Jabbas Palace the original and the SE versions. I have no problem with an atmospheric band then Oolas (sp?) dance number leading to dinner time but the full one band and both choices of music? Nah. Though, this one isn’t so much a suggestion as it is a statement, so… Yeah.
