Fun Fact: for the documentary “I Am Your Father” about David Prowse’s career, they reshot the unmasking scene with Prowse as Anakin; but Disney wouldn’t let them release it to the public, so only the documentary crew (as well as Prowse himself) have access to it.

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

As the ending celebration of TRoS fades to black, one person’s head explodes with barely any time to register what’s happening because it already started fading out.

You’ve mentioned exploding heads on this thread before. Did that happen in one of the special editions and I just forgot about it?

Nope, he just likes exploding heads.

Hal, buddy, if we don’t get a “Custom Extra-Special-Exploding-Head Edition” from you I’m going to be really disappointed.

Lol I’m not sure why, it just became a gag.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Boba Fett constantly making random Fett/clone grunt and half-assed scream sounds.

Not sure if anyone suggested this one yet. When Ben brings Rey back to life he is actually just inhabiting her body and pretending to be Rey.

Which is clarified by an omniscient narrator who has been there the whole movie.

Or, about halfway through the movie, after apologizing for being late.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

George burned the Prowse cut along with the original films. He sprinkles the ashes on his breakfast—- a gallon tub of neopolitan, rubs his belly and says, “I’m your father.”

At the beginning of AOTC, Padme says, “If you’ll excuse me, I will expire,” and then her head explodes.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Do an edit of AOTC and ROTS, but replace all of Anakin’s lines with random quotes from the Elliot Rodger manifesto.

Dub all of the Knights of Ren with the voices of every director Lucasfilm has fired over the years, whenever they walk into frame, have them make pathetic attempts to steal the show with witty one-liners, hoping to impress JJ and be given another chance at employment.

Waiting for the inevitable post from Anakin Starkiller saying this is actually a great idea…

Since it has been said before Star Wars is R2’s story the voice we hear is later revealed to be his after a rebel inserts an “English chip” that allows the droid to finally speak outside of beeps and whistles!

Star Wars is just Bay’s Transformers and R2 is Bumblebee.

In fact, let’s work backwards from that: all of R2’s chirps and beeps and whistles are now sentences constructed through chopped up song lyrics, commercial and news soundbites, and show/movie quotes.

You know me too well.

I’m actually fairly indifferent to which Yoda is used (except the methhead one), as long it’s the same one throughout.

I’d love to see the whole category of things like that, just not as a permanent replacement to the originals.

Look, if I wanted to see the originals (which I really should, at some point), they’re there, thanks to the wonderful people on this site.

My approach to fanediting is to make the best possible versions of the films while mostly staying true to the original vision. I see visual consistency as part of that. That’s why I welcome changes like the SE Mos Eisley. They make the transition between trilogies less jarring, and the world more alive.
