The Mandalorian - A Star Wars Story (Season 1 into a 2 hour film) Spoilers! (WIP)

Author
Time
 (Edited)

Okay so here’s the deal, I absolutely love this show, and the original format will always remain my go-to version. But for the sake of fan-editing practice, this edit is happening.

I plan on condensing the first season of the show into a 2 and a halfish hour film. This film will be titled: The Mandalorian: Episode I (episode name to be confirmed)

The following seasons, (if they make more than two) will be turned into new films to follow this one.

In doing this, the TV show nature of the epsiodes will have to be removed, ending on cliffhangers, cold-opens etc…

I would like to focus on solely the story of Mando and the child. This means that stand-alone episodes like epsiode 6 and such will likely be entirely removed.

Leave your ideas in the comments below, radical ideas welcome!

I will continue to update this topic with my progress.
 

EDIT:
I’ve decided to probably not give this film a name, so for now it will just be…
The Mandalorian: A Star Wars Story - Episode 1

I’ll probably make the season 2 film be called “The Clan of Two” since it seems like they’re going to go in that direction. 😉

If you aren’t familiar with his work, Clark Zuckerberg has already done this.

His edit ended up at 3 hr and 27 min.

Google his name and check out his website.

You can look at his “movie” and see what he has done / what you could further cut to shorten to your desired length.

Edit: And from your options, I like “Pursuit of the Asset”. 😃

Thanks for your reply! I’ll take a look at it!
As for your pick, I am somewhat leaning towards Pursuit of the Asset as it is inspired by an EU Boba Fett Novel “Pursuit”

Hi, seems like a good idea for a fanedit, i enjoyed the show, but i dont wanna watch all 8 eps everytime I rewatch the STAR Wars on Blu Ray, So it would be nice to watch it in a 2,5h movie format.

About the title, maybe you could think about using some Old Eu Boba fett novels title?
Like for eg, Hard Merchandise. Or The Mandalorian Armor? I think both would fit and it would be a nice nod to the previous SW material.

Or maybe you could follow the anthology titles format? THE MANDALORIAN:A STAR WARS STORY?

Quick question, will you use “Long Time ago…” at the beginnjng and the classic ending credits?

The Clan of Two: Maybe it gives away too much
The Way of the Mandalore: It’s not really the focus of the first season
Pursuit of the Asset: It’s a good description but it doesn’t sound interesting
Hunter and Prey: It’s simple but intriguing
The Warrior’s Redemption: I’m not sure if that’s an accurate representation of Mando’s arc
Fall of Tradition: It implies something of a larger scale than what happens in the show
The Hunter’s Debt: I like how it’s not too obvious while being the reason for Mando’s decision
The Final Bounty: Maybe it isn’t

Overall I like “The Hunter’s Debt” the most.

Any idea how one can acquire an editable form of these Mandalorian episodes. Not sure I have the patience to wait for the BR release, if it ever comes. I have a D+ subscription.

For some reason his name didn’t bring up the website. ‘clark zuckerberg star wars’ did work though.

Yep! 😃

Thanks for the Zuckerberg link. Unfortunately its only a stereo audio format ☹️. However, I can use it for rough cut purposes to see how things flow.

I’m down to 2h 45mins, but it would be nice to get to 2h 30. I can probably trim to 2h 40 with harsher cuts, but to get to 2h 30 I’d have to lose the Jawas and/or village battle.

Unfortunately the village battle can’t really be removed without compromising the story flow.

The Jawas could definitely go, but the mudhorn scene needs to stay. My current challenge is to see if I can achieve that.

Any interest in working this into 2 90min films instead of one 150min film? I feel it might help continue the pulpy, cliffhanger style of the Star Wars films.
Also, any interest in dropping the “The Mandalorian” title? Like I’ve said elsewhere, it’s a long, ungainly, ugly word & it’s total nonsense to the uninitiated or even casual fans. I’ve got no alternates to suggest right now, but could help come up with a few if you’re interested.

Hmmm… I’m definitely flexible with how long this film will be… I only said one 150min film since it seemed to make the most sense in terms of the other films, as for changeing the name, I’m more than happy to if I get some good suggestions!

I was able to create a 1 hour and 57 minute cut. I did cut out the village entirely, and the film still flows smoothly. I’d would love to share my version with you for you to compare. Any suggestions on where to upload?

**** EDIT: I was able to put it up on google drive. Link Below.
