Stuck between two ideas my my TPM re-write

I’m currently re-writing TPM, and I’m stuck between two set of characters for the movie, I originally had it one way, but as I was rewriting it, I came up with the second, and I’m not sure what to do about it

Idea #1:
-Mace Windu is assigned with Obi-Wan (who is still Yoda’s padawan) to talk with the leaders of the CIS (the TF is replaced with the Separatists from the beginning)
-Qui-Gon is qui-gone
-Mace Windu leads the charge on the ground and a teenage Anakin and Obi-Wan storm the palace and encounter Maul, and no one dies, not even Darth Maul
-will lead to Mace getting kicked out of the order in AoTC like in the Journal of the Whills

Idea #2:
-Anakin is Obi-Wan’s padawn and they have aggressive negotiations with the leaders of the CIS
-Obi-Wan training under Yoda is only mentioned
-they meet Shmi on Tatooine and the audience and Anakin doesn’t know until later that she’s his mother since Anakin was discovered as a young child
-Anakin does podracing to get them off
-transfer the entire Obi-Wan and Anakin vs. Dooku sequence into the movie except it’s on Naboo and it’s against Darth Maul

Let me know what you think!

No offense, kid, but I don’t think you know how to boil water.

Your first idea is the more original, intriguing one. I’d suggest running with that one.

Aight I edited it for confirmation and spelling stuff. Does your opinion still stand?

I agree, the first one has me curious how you’d do it.
