I really, really like this look on Obi-Wan.

Based on:

a 1994 imagining of a prequel-era Obi-Wan

I’m definitely keen on that look, that’s how I feel the Jedi should be. Maybe, his robes in RotS could be all white, the look he has in ANH could just be that he’s been wearing very few different sets of robes - maybe the one set - for two decades in the desert, they’d probably be in a bit of a state

Regarding your project snooker, I know you have been implementing a lot of the OT score into the movie, and you may have already done this or have picked a different piece of music, but I think it would cool to hear the beginning of the track “Tales of a Jedi Knight” when Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon first take off their hoods at the beginning of the film. Feels like it would be a good place for it.

thank you for the suggestion! I have a few candidates for that spot already, so I’ll see how it sounds!

Nicely done! I can’t say it’s a necessary change that should be implemented…although…hmmm…I do think more fan edits should do things like this…even if a scene plays out pretty much the same way, I feel like you’re watching it more intently thinking “wait, what’s different?”. It kind of makes one sit up and pay attention, ya know?

Snooker, I think you should make your own edit thread sometime soon!

I will! I just want to solidify my vision a little more, and maybe launch that thread with a trailer.

Do you guys think never showing Vader’s suit in ROTS would be a little disappointing for people?
I always that it was funny how Sidious conveniently had that uniquely-designed suit laying around for Anakin to put on shortly after he was burned to a crisp (did he just 3D print it real quick?).

I could see an edit that shows Anakin’s burnt body being carried to Coruscant, and then the next time we see him you could use the brief scene from Rogue One of him in the bacta tank. It makes sense that you would put him in there to stabilize him before throwing him into that suit. The robed figure could be Sidious coming in to check on him, just cut to a different shot before he bows down.

You could even keep the shot of Vader on the star destroyer and let that be the first time we see the suit. Of course you’d lose the Frankenstein parallels and the visual parallels of Vader’s birth and Padme’s death/the twins’ birth, but it is just an alternate idea.

I think it would be too disappointing, yes, for all the parallels you mentioned, but the idea of Vader’s extended rehabilitation is interesting. Depending on how you rearrange the timeline you could make it seem as though the process takes a long time, with other events taking place during the recovery.

True! You could potentially insert it in between the scene of him being carried across the landing platform in the rain, and the scene of him on the operating table.

If you really want to recolor robes, EBSynth might be of use. You just edit a few frames and it does the in-betweens.

You just gave me an idea for my Fall of Skywalker 3-in-1 edit! 😃

Adywan’s Star Wars Revisited edits are to Blade Runner: The Final Cut as the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy are to the original version of Blade Runner.

About the robes, how about only recoloring on the Jedi Council scenes ? It would look as if they changed into more formal robes. Less work also 😁

I don’t know if I should change Qui-Gon’s robes. I feel like his are fine as-is. I do want to give Mace a darker outfit, and maybe have all of the council have different color pallets.

Maybe the federation droids and vehicles could all be gray? More imperial?

For Qui-Gon, I could see him in grey robes, maybe to reflect his more maverick views on the Force within the Jedi Order.

But I think you could keep them as-is too. Maybe having the rest of the Jedi wear more elaborate robes, whereas Qui-Gon wears very simple robes, would be a good way to separate his character from the rest of the Jedi.

EDIT: Alternatively, if Luke’s ROTJ is meant to be the Jedi uniform, having Qui-Gon wear grey with black underneath could go along with that idea.

I think the battle droid color scheme was meant to evoke the color of bone, since they have a skeletal-like frame, but I have to agree I would like to see them with a more metallic, industrial color.

Exactly this. It’s not significant, but it’s an artistic touch that gives the fanedit its own identity. It would make you feel like you’re watching so and so’s fanedit of the Phantom Menace, not just weird Phantom Menace.
