Nice but i still hate ep 1, 2 & 3, i wanted to see them so much when they came out on Cinemas and i hated every minute of them, the only part that i kinda liked was when darth became himself, the rest is awfull, ive watched every fanedit and cut out there during the years hoping i could at least like them in someway but no…

in my book they doesnt exist, i love Part 4,5 & 6 & 7, Rogue, Solo and maybe part 8 (i semiliked that one,the Leia superman-scene, the eating porgscene while they watch and milking the weird “cows” and luke being an old grumpy fart killed it for me, got to Watch it again to prove myself wrong, i hope)…

with that said, good luck with this Project anyway…

I feel a little bad for criticizing this, because it’s better than any work I’ve ever put out, but you asked for comments so here’s some stuff I noticed:

I personally and subjectively just don’t like the music used in the opening text, and I really don’t like the idea of force sensitivity, but those really feel like me things, so I don’t hold it against you or the fanedit in any way.

I really do like the way setting cards were used, adding the year was a good idea. Although it’s not obvious to everyone what BBY means. It limits accessibility a little bit.

Really like the way you cut out the podrace. Starting the movie where you did was effective. Additionally, cutting right from the Phantom Menace to Revenge of the Sith is also something that works pretty well.

The color correction in the Battle of Coruscant looks great. Love it! The lightsabers look a little washed out in the hangar scenes though. Color correction elsewhere also looks great. Especially in the scene where Anakin confronts Padme.

The dream effect doesn’t work so well in that one shot where Padme, Anakin, Owen and Beru are all in shot, because Padme and Beru are still visible, but awkwardly cut off. It’s like in a Pan and Scan if two characters were right next to each other in the original or in previous shots, but one was just off screen. Feels weird. There are a few more shots like this, but that’s the first thing I saw. Additionally, there being two different dream effects is a little weird, maybe (if you plan on making a second version) recreate the second dream using your effect? I’m pretty sure it’s possible using footage from later in the movie.

The last scene with Vader is a little tonally weird. Definitely less cringey than the original, and more accurate to Vader’s character, but it doesn’t fit very well in the otherwise kinda chill ending.

I love the voiceover in the last scene. It’s not the first time I’ve seen something like this in a prequel fanedit, but I fall for it every time.


I normally don’t think that you can make good prequel fanedits without straying far away from the Star Wars formula. This doesn’t really disprove that, because it does stray away from it, but it was surprisingly good and could act as a good replacement for Revenge of the Sith.

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.

Thank you so much!!!
I don’t think I’ll make another version of this, but if I will, I’ll be sure to take note of your suggestions.
About the Tatooine dream scene I agree with you. I rewatched it some days ago and I don’t really like how it came out…

Please stop spamming him, I have it and will pm you it.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

I actually enjoyed this fanedit. I enjoyed the idea of seeing things in a different perspective and flow. Definitely would watch this during a marathon to move quickly to the original trilogy!!! Good edit!!!

Important question:

I’m thinking about working on another edit.
I need someone who could make a crawl for me.
I know there are some tutorials about blender, but I don’t have it, and crawls made with Sony Vegas look like crap. Is there anyone here who could make one?

iMovie is pretty good at it so I could try. Just pm me the details and I can create a mock-up.

Jackpumpkinhead just put out a new version of his Blender template along with a tutorial. Check out his thread and shoot him a PM for links.

Jackpumpkinhead’s crawl maker looks fantastic, I’d check that one out.
