-WILL DO-
Radical edits to the movie; it’s that bad. Egregious. Badly egregious.

-CONSIDERING-

-WON’T DO-

Kathleen Kennedy, I know those Special Editions are “George’s vision”, but, please, won’t you release the OUT for us? It would be nice. 😢
-myself and the fans
P.S. Be careful not to CHOKE on your aspirations.

Embrace radical edits. I don’t think you could make a good prequel trilogy without doing something at least somewhat radical, even if you’re completely starting from scratch, and not just reediting the movie.

Hot take: The Force Awakens is in no way, shape or form a rehash or remake of A New Hope.
It’s no more derivative than the average sequel, and is certainly less derivative than the prequels.

I’ll make these films almost unrecognizable.

Replace the battle droids in The Phantom Menace with clone troopers.

Have the clone army working for the Sith,the Separatists, and the Trade Federation instead of working for the Jedi

Start with Phantom Menace and remove all childish stuff + badly acted scenes.
No Jedi droid slashing, no underwater sequence, no extended mother goodbyes, etc etc.
Remove Jar Jar, Anakin and the Droids “funny” noises.
And above all, make Anakin go on the final attack intentionally!
Aim for a 1H30 movie.

Those changes are easy to do and will put you into a more “radical” frame of mind.
The other movies are harder to tackle thematically. So warm up on TPM 😉
