I like the cut from “Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?” to “Not yet.” It ties into Windu being made to appear to Anakin as truly about to execute him in the next scene, rather than arresting him.
It’s a nice line, and has plenty of meme magic behind it, but this edit is from an alternate universe, after all. Midichlorian jokes you see in things don’t compute with my edits either, y’know.
I love that edit, and borrowed it for my own. Sometimes I miss the original “I am the Senate!” line, but for the same reasons Hal mentioned, skipping the line works great in this context. Windu should be super arrogant and sure of himself, rather than hiding behind the law. Hal, you mentioned in your commentary that the non-existant ideal version of the movie would have Windu charge off to Palpatine by himself to cement this side of his character. Since we can’t do that, making him a quippy douchebag is close enough.
