Some info & help for the Hal 9000 Edits of both the Prequel Trilogy & Sequel Trilogy (and more)…
There are these three main Hal 9000 Prequel Edit threads, by Hal 9000 himself - where information is in abundance, the history and process of the project is contained, and many questions have been already answered - with more encouraged to be asked:-
Star Wars Episode I: Cloak Of Deception
Star Wars Episode II: The Approaching Storm
Star Wars Episode III: Labyrinth Of Evil
And for the Hal 9000 Sequel Edits - these three main threads by Hal 9000 himself - again… where where information is in abundance, the history and process of the project is contained, and many questions have been already answered - with more encouraged to be asked:-
The Force Awakens: A Gentle Restructure
The Last Jedi: Legendary
The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant
There is also this outdated discussion thread (more an Archive on an abandoned Saga Series Edit by Hal 9000) - full of info & ideas - which may be of interest:-
The “9000” Saga Edit
Obviously, the main rule of acquiring the Hal 9000’s Prequel & Sequel Editions is that you must own the official retail release of the Prequel Trilogy & Sequel Trilogy on blu ray - or the HD Digital Downloads thereof.
You can send a PM to Hal 9000 himself for information on acquiring his Edits - and they can also be found on the 1337x•to torrent site - as well as other public and private torrent sites.
Hal 9000 has also done some other quality Star Wars Fan Edits, here:-
The ‘Custom Special Edition’ That Almost Wasn’t, But Then Was (Released)
Return of the Jedi: A Gentle Pruning
1997 Special Edition Audio Mixes, GOUT-Synced project thread too.
Hal 9000 also did these non-Star Wars Fan Edits:-
Back to the Future as one film
Lord of the Rings BOOK CUT Revamped, Books I and II
Sharkey’s “Lord of the Rings” Purist Editions
There are also more of Hal9000’s Edits that can be found over at FanEdit•org - link
Of course, it’s up to you which format you’d like to have the Hal 9000’s Edits stored on - many people like them on blu ray discs - some in quality Box Sets and cases or covers with quality artwork, a few have them stored on USB flash drives, or their computer hard drive, some have them on standalone HD Players, or plex / kodi / media centre type set-ups…
The ‘Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art’ section of the OriginalTrilogy•com site has an array of cover and disc art for adywan’s Revisited Editions - well worth checking it out for ideas & inspiration, for printing info, and help too.
The ‘How-To’s and Technical Discussions’ section may also be of use/assistance if you’re having any technical issues - for seeing if others are having / have had the same or similar problem, or for posing a new question.
Good luck with it - and hope you enjoy watching them, and any of the other great projects on the site too.

Also, the ‘George Lucas: Star Wars Creator, Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist…’ thread attempts to highlight and catalog some of the revisionism, altering of history and contradictory claims by George Lucas / Lucasfilm as to the formation, planning and history of the Star Wars films and universe therein.

Looking to acquire projects on here? Then please read this…
(and take the time to look around to see how this place works - and doesn’t - before posting requests for projects on here - thank you)
A fair few people join here for a particular the Preservation Project, Fan Edit, documentary, blu ray or dvd cover etc. We ask that those who do… also have a look around; see if there are other Projects, Edits or works of interest to your liking. To give the Star Wars discussion threads a read through, or those in the Off Topic sections. To have a think about becoming a part of the community here; and consider not becoming a one-time poster… asking for a link to a project and to never be seen again.
Many of the projects on here have been undertaken by volunteers or enthusiasts who’ve devoted considerable time, effort, dedication and some expense… to locate, preserve, restore & archive - or edit - films and TV programs in their best possible presentation. This is often with painstaking commitment - yet all projects are available for free; not to mention our members also improving upon & sharing techniques, knowledge, technical assistance, experiences - and a few stories, along the way.
Joining up here and then creating a new thread along the lines ‘Give me the link to X’, ‘Where is project Y’, or going straight into a project thread and posting ‘How do I get these?’ doesn’t really fly on here - and will likely be ignored or deleted. Taking the time to learn about a project - by reading through the project thread - as well as how to acquire them; simply making an effort to be part of the community here, and how this place works, even if just leaving feedback for acquired projects, can go a long way…
NOTE: Many editors & preservationists choose not to make their projects available to ‘hit & runners’ or people with a post history of mainly asking for many projects - which is completely up to them. That some people join up here looking to simply take - instead of give something back; not even leaving a simple ‘thank you’, feedback or review, or join in with the community here - and instead move on to asking for more projects… is not encouraged. As above, such requests may likely be ignored.
I have found a Fan Edit / Preservation Project I am interested in - but don’t know how to get / acquire / download it?
