The Unofficial Complete REVISITED SAGA Ideas and Random Discussion Thread — Page 68

Looks like you’re returning to the Had Abbadon idea for your eventual Revenge of the Jedi?

For some reason it’s not working yet for me. Could you possibly give the planet more contrast, so the dark side of the planet is even darker?

I think it is also a cool framing, with the planet center punched on the screen, but I wonder if you tried to replicate other planet establishing shots from the OT that maybe it could help sell it.

EDIT: Also think the same reasoning is why your Yavin 4 mock-up felt a little off to me. I know you probably wanted to try a different angle, but I wonder if maintaining generally the same framing would help make it work better.

At this point, maybe we should rename this thread the Original Trilogy Radical Redux Thread.

Thought that was pretty funny at first but that actually might not be a bad idea, since we now know the Revisited Saga will now only consist of the OT.

Or, just make a new thread, which probably would make more sense since there are other threads related to the Revisited projects. The original function of this thread, based on the title, is really not necessary anymore.

This did make me go back and read the first few pages of this thread, and it was interesting to read the discussion revolving around changing the PT to fit the OT so much that you would keep Anakin=Vader a secret so the twist could work in ESB.

I personally agreed with Dom’s point that the purpose of the prequels was to see how Anakin became Darth Vader, so removing that aspect wouldn’t really work. And if you were to show the films to a first-timer, you would be better off to just show them the films in release order, or the Machete Order. I also think darthrush’s idea of slightly altering ROTS to work as a standalone prequel that could be placed in between ESB and ROTJ would be interesting to see as well.

I am still curious to see what Ady’s plans/ideas were to make this concept work, because if anyone could figure it out it would be Ady. I just know it would have been challenging to pull off. I can definitely understand the desire to do so, since it makes sense that first-time viewers should be able to watch these films chronologically. But I do think the way the films are now, and how this is a conversation that fans will probably have for years to come, is partly what makes this franchise so special and interesting.

Even if Adywan isn’t Revisiting the Prequels, he can still contribute to conversations about how they should be edited…if he wants, that is.

As for a new thread, here it is.
