Worst Edit Ideas — Page 46

See this is why I’m not a big fan of Filoni’s work. Feels like fanfiction with OCs front and center. He worked best with Lucas, and Lucas worked best with him.

I actually do, but one thing for sure I know I don’t like is how Ahsoka says “I won’t leave you” to Vader in Rebels. It’s way more powerful to have Luke be the first one to say that to him. I like to think the reason he dies right then is because he finally heard the words he wanted to hear his whole life. And that takes a little bit of power away from that.

Last night, while watching a fan edit of A New Hope that I added a custom text crawl to, I actually thought of making a change to the Cantina sequence.

The change I considered making was to remove all the shots of various aliens all over.

That idea came from a slight misunderstanding of what the scene is about.

It’s NOT about showing off special effects for alien creatures and such.

It’s a scene from Luke’s point of view; he’s been sheltered as a moisture farmer, and he’s just NOW stepping foot in the greater world and seeing what variety of races there are in the Galaxy.

Excuse the double-post; just thought of something else regarding the Cantina sequence.

Replace the Jizz music with the track “Grandmaster Jam Session” from ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’

Make Obi-Wan a Force ghost throughout the OT after having died off-camera a few days after ROTS.

Might as well adapt the popular pre-Prequel fan theory that Obi-Wan is actually a clone of Ben named OB-1, and Ben died on Mustafar or during Order 66.

When Obi-wan is fighting Vader on the Death Star, near the end he escapes back into the hallway and summons a Force projection of himself to stand against Vader in his final moments. He causes his projected body to disappear when it is ‘struck down’, then causes the cloak to disappear some time later.

Then Obi-wan escapes the Death Star while the Rebels are attacking and telepathically communes with Luke before escaping.

He then projects himself to Luke several times after this such as on Hoth and on Dagobah, which is why his visage continues to age.

Yoda does the same thing when he ‘dies’ on Dagobah.

Anakin feigns death on the second Death Star and ditches his armor on the shuttle while Luke is distracted during flight. And, you guessed it, all three Force Lads meet up on Endor and give Luke a Force projection send off before piling into Obi-wan’s ship and retiring on Canto Bight.

Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change? - oojason

Use AI to give Jar Jar the voice of Peter Cushing.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

In Lego The Force Awakens, the bloody handprint on Finn’s helmet is replaced with a green “splat” from where a villager threw a fruit at him.
Put that in the movie.

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

Dub every stormtrooper and clone trooper with John Boyega’s American voice and superimpose his face on all the unmasked clone troopers.

Does this include Jango and Boba?

Add a plot point that Jango himself was a clone of someone else.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Change Jar Jar’s last name to Abrams as a show of appreciation for JJ Abrams’s contributions to the franchise.

Add a Death Star to every film for poetry’s sake.

Instead of having Palpatine shoot lightning at Rey, have Palpatine ignite a lightsaber, leap off his throne while screeching like a maniac, and stab Rey in the stomach. The credits roll immediately afterwards.

I would unironically have been down for Palpatine to bust a move with his lightsaber, preferably including him turning his head 180 like the kid in Exorcist at one point while doing so. Like Rey lands behind him after doing a Jedi somersault and he just turns his head to face her without turning his body. Would’ve been lit.

Maybe the conflict comes from the lack of conflict and excitement in the younger characters lives, combined by their distaste for the society of the New Republic - kind of like a very confused Inter-Galactic version of Fight Club.

The controversy over how Dooku died, in Episode III, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Anakin to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Dooku is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Anakin just cut off his head, because they wanted to think that he actually just murdered him in cold blood.
