Someone asked about cutting down some Mustafar stuff.
I tried this, to remove the over the top fight parts from Obi Wan and Anakin’s duel. Just some different cut and a music track in the end. It doesn’t feel like SW, but I like it.
Of course it’s just a rough edit…

It feels like SW and it is fantastic!! My only gripe is that the music covers the voices at the tail end of the Anakin duel.

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.

Yeah, of course it’s rough, I didn’t spend too much time on it 😉

No offense but what did you actually do

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.

It’s good.
I just don’t like the final music, it’s not Star Wars, too much synthesizer 😉

Yeah, it was actually just a test to have the same music from the end of Yoda’s scene to Obi Wan jumping…

I don’t mind the music that much, although it’s very not Star Wars, as others have pointed out. It’s better than the original fight IMO, but I was hoping there was a way to do it without reinserting the Yoda v Sidious fight.

It’s probably not possible to do it that way, though.

I didn’t understand what you meant about cutting the whole Yoda/Palpy duel.
Maybe we could entirely cut that by showing Yoda on the asteroid meditating. With some montage it could look like he is mentally watching Obi wan and Anakin’s duel.
Even tough we would have to find other scenes to insert between the different moments of the duel on Mustafar…
What about stopping when Palpatine shocks Yoda? It would make Yoda look weaker, but we could cut out the whole fight… and we would find Yoda later, finding out that he managed to escape…

Frankly, I’d prefer to go the Hal 9000 route and not have Yoda ever confront the Emperor at all, but that’s me.

Agreed. If there was a confrontation, it should be across the galaxy with force Skype.

Actually…that might not be a terrible idea if it could be implemented in a similar way to the TLJ Kylo/Rey conversations. I haven’t seen the theatrical in a while, is there any dialogue worth keeping in the office conversation scene, pre-duel?

100% agree, they shouldn’t fight.

I have somehow managed to get Anakin vs. Obi-Wan down to a minute and a half while keeping only the good stuff. I’ll upload it later today.

The fight is refocused on Obi-Wan backing away from Anakin, and him never showing anger or fury. Obi-Wan is trying to save Anakin, not have a dumb 7 minute fight with him on ropes and falling structures.

The sounds are entirely unfinished, as I haven’t really isolated the dialogue or completed the saber sound effects. This is a proof of concept more than anything.

I like it. The only problem of course is that they constantly change location from one shot to another.
I think we should put other scenes between different parts of the duel. If we don’t want Yoda going to Palpy, though, it’s really complicated, because apart from Yoda meditating we don’t have other scenes that could happen during the duel on Mustafar.
I like the music and the sound effects.

PS: Or we could… I don’t know, maybe add some dissolve effect between different parts of the duel. If done well, it could show the passing of time.

Bad location continuity is a sacrifice I’m willing to take when it comes to this fight. If I did focus on continuity, we’d miss out on some of the better moments and get stuck with a whole lot of twirling light-sticks.

This is what you can do with Palpatine and Yoda: make their battle mental.

If someone can get shots of Palpatine, or at least a robed figure, meditating, then Yoda and Palpatine’s battle can be a mental one where they project each other into each other’s minds. Thus you can cut to, say, the various shots of Yoda concentrating in pain spliced with the actual physical battle footage. Maybe use shots of Yoda collapsing in pain during the Jedi purge when he loses to Palpatine. Could overlay the Palps vs Yoda footage with a green or red filter to show it’s in the mind. A REALLY good editor could go one step further and add a ghostly affect to either Yoda or Palps to have them fighting Luke vs Kylo style.

Or if that’s too complex, then just reorder the Jedi purge to be happening DURING the Obi-Wan/Anakin battle to make it extra tragic that it all collapses at once.
