I think that prequel edits should be viewed in Machete Order, thus spoiling Vader’s identity is not worth removing if an edit is designed to be viewed in Machete Order.

Has anyone any idea how to add some people to Naboo to make the audience care? Because in the original we don’t ever get to see any people living in Theed. Sure the viceroy and Sio Bibble mention the people and their plight at every occasion possible, but we do not see any of them.

We also really need to see the droid army really doing damage to Theed (and its people). As it stands, there’s like one tank and about five droids that we see there. The final conflict in TPM should have been in Theed, not in the featureless fields. The entire Gungan plotline is skippable.

I came up with this idea for fixing the prequels. By making Solo Episode II and Rogue One Episode III, you can go all out in changes using 2 hours of footage from the 3 prequels in a 3-in-1 edit.

Temba, his arms wide!

I also see potential for the Kenobi and Andor series being turned into film-length edits that can be used as prequels. I actually think they would be more fitting as prequels than Solo, which has very little to do with the Skywalkers or the Rebellion. Depending on how much content we get for Andor, you could potentially have enough content for two movie edits. And when you throw in Rogue One, you could have a trilogy with Cassian as the protagonist.

Alternatively, you might be able to do the same thing with Kenobi. Even though it is a limited series, it might have enough content for two movie-length edits, so you could potentially have ROTS be Episode I, Kenobi Part 1 as Episode II, and Kenobi Part 2 as Episode 3.

The trilogies are supposed to have a consistent cast though, so switching between random characters wouldn’t work.

Are you referring to the Prequel 3-in-1, Solo, and Rogue One trilogy idea, Anakin?

I guess that is another benefit either an Andor trilogy, or a Kenobi trilogy, because you would have a consistent cast across all three movies. Diego Luna will be in the Andor series obviously, and supposedly Forrest Whittaker and Genevieve O’Reilly will reprise their roles as Saw Gerrera and Mon Mothma respectively. And in the Kenobi series, we obviously have Ewan and Hayden back as Obi-Wan and Vader. And the actors who played Owen and Beru Lars in AOTC and ROTS are also returning.

I think a combo of TPM and AOTC, then ROTS, then Kenobi movie edit might be a solid prequel trilogy depending on what happens in the series.

Because it’s what makes them a trilogy as opposed to some vague anthology. If you wanna do it that way go ahead, but it doesn’t work for me.

Sorry for the 30 minute video, I knew you couldn’t post full movie links,thought 30 min segments were allowed. Is there a generally acceptable length? 5 minutes?

In AOTC, get off Coruscant as fast as possible by eliminating the poisonous slug assassination attempt. The landing platform is now the only assassination attempt. Two was overkill. Also Anakin and Padme have seen each other often between AOTC and Phantom Menace. Helps make their relationship more believable. Anakin is now more mature.

1st scene: Landing Platform assassination attempt.
2nd scene: deleted Senate scene with Padme.
3rd scene: Anakin introduction is now chasing the assassin Zam Wessell through the streets then nightclub
4th scene: Anakin is assigned to take Padme back to Naboo by the Council
5th Scene: Anakin and Palpatine in his office discuss his first assignment.

Then this:

I don’t think anyone has tried this approach before. If interested, PM me for the full 30 minute Mandalorian style episode: Attack of the Clones Part 1.

I’ve probably mentioned it before but I would love a new regrade of Hal’s cut of TPM,especially the outside Naboo stuff, the fields just feel fake but with a nice dusk regrade it would remove that feeling.
