I’m thinking sometime from later this evening through to Thursday next week. It all depends on subtitles, rendering (which is now being done for the third time) and the upload.

I will have it fully ready for release within the hour or two, but then without subtitles. I have not yet decided if I’m going to release it without subtitles at first, as I’d love a “complete package” of sorts. But then again, it’s just subtitles…

Remember that The Ancient Lore will have two versions, one which is this - and then one final at a later time with whatever fixes that might be necessary, as well as alterations to (maybe) common complaints about something that people might feel was a bit off (a color tweak etc). This version will not be taking into account wishes for alteration to narrative, or completely new scenes. This I am settled on, and will be present throughout both versions. This IS the complete version, but with the possibility of the public/community to help sort out minor things for the upcoming complete version (with a 5.1 audio track).

Thank you all!

Your welcome and I look forward to seeing the finished “product”. Above all though you should do what ever makes you comfortable as your comfort is the most important thing here. 😉👍

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

Subtitles will have to wait, as they will take up to a three weeks time. I have therefore concluded with a release date for today.

It is weird to say this, but The Ancient Lore is finished. The release was supposed to happen with subtitles ready, but the process at hand will take time and therefore I find it useless to have spent five years on this project only to let it sit silent for three more weeks when I could just as well release it.

Thank you to all who have contributed, especially beyond what can be expected, and the credits list is and will be added accordingly.

I accept PMs as from now on and out, and will respond accordingly. It is possible to stream the edit from my Google Drive, but I do recommend to download it for superior quality. And as always; remember to own the original product, and do not attempt to profit on this in any way whatsoever.

Be in the mood when you watch it please, and close your eyes - thinking it’s a brand new release and that you’ve never seen TPM before - and then open them with a fresh mind before you hit play. Only then will you be a Jedi.

Please enjoy!

Known error(s)/complaints as of now:

  • A repeated shot should be replaced with a new one (Agreed, and will be made from scratch).

I accept PMs from now on out, and will send out link (Google Drive - I recommend to download for superior quality) as soon as the upload is fully complete.

Okay, holy shit? how did you even do this? Watched it and loved it! Going to see it again now!

Will you do more versions?

This edit was amazing! My Favorite part of it was how you made the tone much more darker than the original, and how you rearranged scenes. Very well done!

[UPDATE]

VIDEO REFERENCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfNiSkd3HfI

A lot of people has asked me about V2 and Star Wars, and I’ve thought a lot about the Star Wars community as a whole. This video, from Ahmed Best - the actor of Jar Jar Binks, has completely changed my mind about a lot. And especially the Star Wars community.

I did not know or ever choose to think about what love, passion and care there has to be, both involved but also shared, among a lot of certain individuals to create a character like Jar-Jar Binks. How much emotion and love you put into something you expect to be loved back only to get crushed in the most emotional and heartfelt of ways.

I have never been a monster towards anything Star Wars related. I’ve criticized - maybe even been a little rude at times, but I’ve never attacked the actor or the director or anyone who has ever poured their soul into the making of a film, or a project, or a “thing”. Seeing now, as an adult nonetheless, how the SW community is acting towards the creative people involved in the making of Star Wars - just like back in 1999 and onwards, and how much the monster backslash might hurt the actors, the costume designers, the lightning technicians, and the smaller people involved is a terrifying thought. Some research into the topic and you will find horrifying articles. And I’m not speaking about criticism. I’m speaking about personal attacks, death threats - hell, even stalking and harsh, verbal language (and/or mocking) both in private as well as in public.

Fanediting for me has always been about either improving or altering something to what I consider to be a better, more interesting and perhaps more emotional product. The Ancient Lore adopts this exact philosophy.

I have for many days thought about discontinuing The Ancient Lore and Star Wars overall. I do not feel passion for the universe going forward (faults of both the community as well as Disney). I do not support the fanbase at all as most of them have turned into a mob - and I do not support how I am a continuing force of negative critique of the Prequel era, and importantly The Phantom Menace, be it inside the fanediting community or beyond.

I choose to leave Star Wars behind, proudly doing so, keeping what fond memories I have from EP I - VII. I also applaude every Star Wars fan that both love and care for the universe with decency and respect, regardless of how you feel about the movies from the past, present or maybe even future. Having our voices heard is crucial, but the manner of how you speak can sometimes be even more important than your message.

I simply choose to distance myself from the toxic community it has become.

The Ancient Lore will still be be obtainable out of respect for the work done, and V2 will come to finish it down the line - but I hope that with this post I at least make my intentions clear. I have loads of respect for Ahmed Best and everyone ever involved with TPM and so should you all. This edit was only ever intended as a love letter to a movie I always felt had much more in it. Thank you, to George Lucas and LucasFilm and all the brilliant people involved!

Please view this work as a sign of respect and love for the universe, and not as a hate speech (which so many unfortunately seem to think it is).

Please close this thread.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Wonderful film Anjohan, I really enjoyed it. Thanks for this love letter to TPM, there were so many fun details that were awesome variations on the original. I espcislly loved the subtitles for Gunray and his fellow officials.
