TAL V2: As promised.

I did promise you all a V2 after some reflecting and analysis, both on my part and the audience’s. I also promised you 5.1 audio channels and to listen to feedback. This has been the priority.

I can therefore announce that V2 is officialy in the works, and that a great deal of major decisions have been made:

  • The major re-scoring is heavily trimmed down, and as much of The Phantom Menace OST that i can keep, I will keep. This does not include score additions that made the film better and that was greatly liked - such as The Invasion of Naboo.

  • ALL bugs, errors and weird scenes will be removed and/or fixed.

  • The additional scenes with Maul in the forest, killing Jedi, will go. Too fanfilm-y. The scene with him talking to Sidious MIGHT be kept. Let’s see how it looks once worked upon.

  • The new scenes that DID work, like the opening - Maul talking to hologram Sidious on Tattooine - the ending battle sequences, The Invasion of Naboo etc. will obviously be kept. These made the films a lot better, and were changes that were indeed a welcome one.

  • I’m open for adding back in some deleted scenes.

But most importantly, I’m very much opening The Ancient Lore feedback stream again; so do come with suggestions, and loads of them, if you please. 😃

My goal is still to make this into the best, and most radical, The Phantom Menace film there is.

Also, V2 will follow the original structure of the story - but with my alterations.

A new look at the new Ancient Lore format, keeping to the film’s original narrative (or at least very close to it, with some few liberties) and with the new color grade. There will be added film grain later on. My previous color grade tried to mimic the less color vibrant original trilogy, but in the process i think the footage got too boring and lifeless. The original films were made in the late 70’s and early 80’s, so they’re excused.

After this sequence, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan leave onboard seperat ships like in the original film, followed by my “Invasion of Naboo” scene - know with some slightly more brutal tweaks.

I have thought about giving The Trade Federation ship’s some red lightning instead of the yellow, to make it more evil or at least definitely more sinister; as well as change up the (know) very predictable Trade Federation tone. But I’m not sure.

Also, the musical additions and alterations are to make the film more powerful from the get-go - I’m not quite sure it works, so tell me if you feel like it doesn’t. 😃

For some reason the YouTube video is a lot darker than the original product file, which might be due to the fact I’m using and editing in a 4K format, so please don’t pay attention to this.

Good news on V2 Andreas (more familiar with you from fanedit.org 😄)
Your edit is still my go to for Episode I, reguarding changes for v2 my original review on fanedit hits most points I had…

"When it comes to watching Episode I I’ve personally avoided watching it for so long I barely remember the film and as such also avoided the many fanedits over the years for fears of bring back those bad memories. As its been so long I finally gave in and watched Andreas edit and I’m glad I did.

What drew me to this edit was the reimagining of the narrative and using other source material to expand on much needed character development while omitting offensive scenes throughout some examples SPOILERS like expanding on the trade federations backstory to strengthen their motives, allowing the villains more screen time to give a sense of peril and also better introducing Dookus character to the storyline and reintroducing Jar-Jars as a member of the Jedis original crew sent from corusent. Is this film perfect? no. can the few issues be fixed? yes, quite easily.

The main issues are really only technical ones like Mauls sabre changing orange in some scenes, although you get the narrotive point better with Dookus hologram throughout it still looks out of place in some scenes eg Jedi council scene @ 00:56:23 and some clunky subtitles one example of this is during the original films opening scenes on the trade federations ship which is now shown later in the film when Qui-Gons using his sabre to melt the bridges blast doors these are the new lines:

Nute Gunray: “close the blast doors… Were you born stupid?”
Rune: “this guy just wont give up!”
Nute Gunray: “shut up, your encouraging him” – encouraging? Should read something more like "shut up, stop & admiring them!

Also something out of place is the heavy metal rift first heard at Tattooine when entering Mos Espa and the Maul scenes which brings you out of the Starwars film. Lastly Qui-Gons close up death scene @ 01:27:56 repeats itself but not sure if its intentional though.

Overall a very good edit from Andreas and a definite improvement over the theatrical, looking forward to the improvements version 2 of the Ancient Lore will bring."

HAIL Anjohan!

What do you use as a source?
I think Bobson Dugnutts Theatrical Reconstruction is phenomanal in all aspects.
