This release is planned for October and will consist of alternate audio tracks that can be synched with the official DVDs of Episode II and Episode III.
The only difference will be that Anakin will be acted by somebody other than Hayden Christiansen. Also, after swapping out the dubs I may run both mixes through a tape machine to give it a warmer quality.
I have tested the actor and he is good. We are doing this as a kind of proof of concept before tackling my edits, but also to try and do something fun and immediately beneficial to the community.
Like the mono mix of Star Wars, which featured a complete redub of Aunt Beru, this will hopefully be an enjoyable alternate way for people to experience the movie.
Episode II: Shroud of the Dark Side
“Back when we made Star Wars, we just couldn’t make Palpatine as evil as we intended. Now, thanks to the miracles of technology, it is finally possible. Finally, I’ve created the movies that I originally imagined.” -George Lucas on the 2007 Extra Extra Special HD-DVD Edition
