Does anyone have a link to the 1080p episode 3? The drive link seems to always exceed the download quota before I can grab it. Thanks!

Try copying it to your own Drive. Hal has a FAQ sheet at the root of his shared link that assists with things like this 😉

AH! I’d been looking for the exact information that was outlined in the faq. /facepalm. Thanks a ton!

EDIT: Well the other source didn’t seem to work, and copying it to my drive has proved unsuccessful so far; if anyone happens to have a different link, I’d be eternally grateful!

Copy to your Drive, then copy it within your Drive again. That’s enough to fool it. 😉

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I was running into the same issue recently, but figured it was too many downloads. Thanks!

News weeks like this one make me regret trimming Obi-Wan’s line, “Anakin, my allegiance is to the Republic, to democracy!”

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

If your alternate ending in which Padme dies also had the Yoda arriving on Dagobah deleted scene inserted it would be the perfect ending.

But it doesn’t, I just checked. It goes from 3-PO to Padme’s funeral to Vader on the Star Destroyer to Leia and Luke.

I used to always want the Yoda scene at the end, but we all know what happens. I don’t think it is too needed. The OG ending wraps up the story of the prequels and leads well into Episode IV.

Mother -> Father -> Daughter -> Son

The Skywalker Saga Viewing Order:
I: C.O.D. | II: T.A.S. | III: L.O.E. AE
IV: Revisited | V: Revisited | VI: Revisited
VII: Restructured | VIII: Rekindled | IX: Ascendant

This is the way.

It wouldn’t hurt to have it between 3PO and Padme’s funeral, it wouldn’t interfere with the Skywalker family montage at all

Oh, I see. You mean the alternate ending version.

I don’t know if its been done before, but I’ve recently translated Labyrinth of Evil’s English subtitles to Brazilian Portuguese.

If that interests anyone, PM me.

Thank you Hal9000 for the amazing edit.

Cheers!

Time for me to comment, and thank Hal once again for a mind-blowing job on these edits ! 😄 I think we don’t emphasize enough how much time and effort is put into all this. “Labour of love” may be an understatement.

I have also read some of the first pages of this thread, and I would like to comment especially on the Padme’s surviving topic, as it may be the most debatable point of the whole experience.

I’m among people like Malastrana and others who believe that Padme should remain dead (well, not dying because of the ridiculous “losing the will to live” droid line which should definitely be replaced, lol, but for other reasons).

I also understand Hal’s reasons and his impossibility to revert that change even if he wanted to, because he basically built this whole episode (maybe even his whole trilogy) about the idea of Padme surviving. It was a bold choice for sure. But in the end it’s a choice that I wouldn’t have made personally.

Here’s a couple of reasons why I think Padme should remain dead :

  1. Like some mentioned, a very minor inconsistency towards future episodes isn’t enough IMHO to justify deleting one of the most beautiful/powerful/emotional scenes in the whole movie : the funeral, and also the fact that Padme holds the Japor Snippet that Anakin gave her. I’m a sucker for those romantic details, sorry.
  2. After the end of the Mustafar duel and Vader (well, Anakin, lol) barely surviving, the whole movie is coming to a dramatic climax, and EVERY scene contributing to that climax must be kept : Vader’s “NOOOO” scene, Padme’s funeral, and of course the Tatooine final scene which has wet my eyes more than once (unless it was Tatooine’s dust ? ;p ).

Of course it’s very tempting to go towards the ideal of consistency between trilogies. But here it’s done at a great expense, so in the end I think the losses overcome the benefits. There is no perfect solution : either Padme dies (which creates a minor inconsistency), or she lives (and then there is no funeral). But Padme dying may be the lesser evil.

I’m very grateful that Hal did such a great edit anyway, and of course if we don’t like some of his choices we are always free to watch other edits. I guess the perfect Ep.3 edit doesn’t exist yet. Hal mentioned L8wtr’s edit, but even if it was still available, it would be DVD resolution, and in 2020 I would generally not watch anything below 1080p, especially for Star Wars movies ! 😃

That’s a good breakdown of the dilemma. Fortunately a version of LOE exists with both endings. However, you’re right that the overall edit of Ep3 was crafted with that end in mind.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I also find it unbelievable that Padme wouldn’t try and track down Vader and bring him back to the light, and/or just raise both of the twins herself. Also wouldn’t Vader be able to feel that she’s still alive through the force?

In the screenplay of ROTS, it goes from Padme’s funeral to Yoda going to Dagohbah to Vader on the Star Destroyer to Leai and Luke.

In Mecha Salesman’s extended version of ROTS, It goes from C3PO to Ahsoka and Rex after they buried the clones to Padme’s Funeral to Vader and Palpatine on the Venator ship (In imperial color scheme) to Yoda going to Dagohbah to Leia and Luke and one year later to Vader finding Ahsoka’s lightsaber.

In Madman’s Knowledge’s version, just like the same except Ahsoka’s final scene was before the Mustafar duel and he doesn’t include Yoda going to Dagobah. He added Obi-Wan’s message from Rebels to when the twins end up on the planets they will be raised in nad after the binary sunset, it fades to black and then fades to one year later when Vader finds Ahsoka’s lightsaber.

In C3PO clips’ version, the final montage is the darkness ruling the Galaxy (Padme’s Funeral and Vader on the Star Destroyer), The jedi hiding (Yoda going to Dagobah and Ahsoka and Rex after they buried the clones), and a new hope (Leia and Luke). And we go one year later to the Darth Vader scene that was at the end of the Clone Wars series.

I noticed that he has his lightsaber which makes sense it took place immediately after the Darth Vader comics and one year after ROTS.

To be fair Vader didn’t sense her death

But he did. That’s why he said “Where is Padme? Is she safe? Is she alright?” and “She was alive! I felt it!”

When he was being operated on, he could feel her presence, which is also why he said “Padme help me” as the mask was being lowered on him. But after the operation, she died and he couldn’t feel her anymore, which is why he was confused.

At least that’s how I interpreted it.

OMG, I didn’t even notice there was a LOE ‘Alternate Ending’ version!

I’ve encountered the same issue with all of his edits. At this point you’re better off getting them from 1337x.to.

In my version there is a funeral and Padme lives.
She has a history of using decoys, she faked her death.

So she killed one of her decoys and put her in the open coffin?
Now that’s professional commitment.
