Take the Star Wars radio dramas and make them into animated films.

How, in all of the Hell, is this a “Bad Idea”?

It’s not “Bad” it’s more impossible. Not entirely so, but I imagine nobody would care enough to try to do that.

The first one is 6 and a half hours long. Empire is 5 hours, and Jedi is 3. That is a lot of animation.

Much of the radio drama is filler as well. The first 3 episodes of A New Hope are all set before the story of the film, and lots of stuff is added. I am sure some of it is worthwhile, but I think it is too much content to be worthwhile to animate.

Were it to be done, the audio would have to be cut down considerably, to keep it interesting to watch, and less work to animate. If we could convince Disney to waste a bunch of money animating it in 3D like the Clone Wars, that would surely be interesting. It would be a great resource for fanediting, at the very least.

Personally, I’d just animate the radio drama-exclusive scenes.

The 1997 VHS Special Edition release of The Empire Strikes Back with Luke screaming down the reactor shaft after he finds out the truth about his family. Is it just me, or does his scream sound like Marty McFly?

If you don’t have the 1997 VHS, you can view the scene that I’m talking about here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p9ozSFOMQY: 5 minuets and 14 seconds in.

I am fond with anything that’s got to do with Star Wars. But, I have particular interest in Red label soundtracks on CD for the OT and White label (Promo) soundtracks on Lp for the OT. I also interest in TPM home video releases.

Now that I’ve heard it, it defiantly sounds like the Emperor’s death from Return of the Jedi.

Goes to show how much of a lazy/cheap hack Lucas is. Luke screaming as he fell down the shaft could’ve worked if Lucas’ gotten Hamill in to record it, or someone with a relatively similar voice. But no, he reuses the Palpatine scream 'cause he couldn’t be bothered to put the extra ounce of effort into it.

Actually no, he’s a genius and this is secretly art. It’s symbolic of how Luke is Palpatine, which makes sense if you watch the Original Trilogy backwards, as it was always was meant to be.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call Lucas a “lazy hack,” but I agree that he didn’t put much effort into the SE. Adywan’s version shows what the SE would look like if Lucas actually committed to his goal of updating the movies.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000 edits), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian.
May the midichlorians be with you.

Make RotJ like Part 2 of the Nutcracker ballet where it’s just people watching musical numbers in Jabba’s palace for two hours.

Edit them to be absolutely jam-packed with stimulation, pop ups every few seconds, incredibly loud and distracting music, text pointing out details, jokes and memes thrown in there for good measure, and cut from scene to scene before they finish.
