“You’re going to kill him, aren’t you?”

“That’s why I’m here.”

Not going to lie, I’m having trouble recalling where that first quote is from.

It’s near the end of Episode III when Obi-Wan visits Padme out of desperation to find Anakin. I know. I’m editing it right now.

I have altered Lucas’ visions. Pray I don’t alter them any further.

Oh, yeah, I found it now on YouTube.

Padme does whisper the line, and I’ve had a lot of other things on my mind these days.

Change Palpatine’s scream while falling down the DSII spire to “Noooo!!”

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Uncle Owen gets barbecue sauce on his face while eating.

This is one of those great worst ideas that if you told me straight-faced it was in one of the different Special Editions, I’d probably briefly believe it.

Not to beat the “That’s actually a good edit idea” joke corpse into pink mist, but that’s unironically not a bad edit idea. It would be kinda cute.

Replace the entire films with recordings of themselves someone took on their phone from the couch 5 m from the screen (shot vertically, of course).

For a while, I’ve been on the fence about saying this, but to heck with it.

During the scene where Padme reveals to Anakin that she’s preggers, intercut a short flashback of them doing the devil’s tango.

You jest but I legit have clip someone made here on the forum of a scene of them going at it in the Naboo villa in AotC. Of course it isn’t explicit or anything but you can tell what they’re doing.

Find YouTube Poops of every single scene in the saga and edit them all together in order into one single eighteen hour insanity cut.

No, silly, you’re supposed to play all nine films at once.

Change Palpatine’s scream while falling down the DSII spire to “Noooo!!”

Try “I’ll be back.”

Aunt Beru puts tiny CGI creatures in the food processor rather than vegetables.

Okay this one is golden. Tbh, it sounds like something that could legit happen in the prequels. In fact, if someone were to put together such a clip, I think I would include it in my edit of ANH.

This is one of those great worst ideas that if you told me straight-faced it was in one of the different Special Editions, I’d probably briefly believe it.

Well there we go, like I said, it sounds like something that could legit be in there.

The film is black and white until the moment we cut to inside the Mos Eisley cantina.

Begin Episode III with Anakin getting the Darth Vader suit. As Anakin writhes in agony, a record scratch is heard, and The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” plays in the background. A Hayden Christensen-soundalike does a voice over narration and says, “Yup. That’s me. You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation…”

Next, transition to the actual opening scene, and add a “six months ago” caption on the bottom of the screen.

Then, leave the rest of the movie as is.

I thought it was more like six days…

Let’s opt for six hours instead.

Definitely gonna need an overall 80’s movie soundtrack change to go along with that.

  • Opening space battle to the tune of Take On Me.

  • Together Forever for the cringey balcony scene.

  • Plastic love playing faintly on the radio during one of the Jedi Council meetings.

  • The Psycho Soldier theme for the Grievous fight.

  • Never Surrender for that scene of Anakin and Padme looking off into the sunset from different parts of Coruscant.

  • The Bangles’ version of Hazy Shade of Winter for Palpatine’s Arrest.

  • Burning Heart for the Mustafar duel.

  • Weird Science for Vader’s reconstruction, with additional shots taken from the music video for it and Batman Forever to make Palpatine’s lab extra cooky.

  • The rest of the soundtrack (instrumentals) is taken from 80s Doctor Who.

  • Color regrade inspired by Joel Schumacher’s Batman films.

  • MTV logo in the bottom corner.

  • Slightly degraded VHS look. Not too overdone though.

  • Use next-generation hair simulation technology to increase everyone’s hair volume.

  • Deepfake 80s actors onto the existing ones.

And there we have it, Direct-to-Video Revenge of the Sith (1989). Unfortunately, there’s no room for Michael Jackson’s Jar Jar due to the character’s more or less absence from the film.

Is it possible to see that clip?

Ask TheAlaskanSandman. I’d rather not have to go through the trouble of reuploading it myself if it can be avoided.

I know this gets said jokingly in this thread a lot, but (other than the deepfakes joke) this would be a really cool comedic edit of ROTS and I would absolutely watch it.

Well, it’s actually 9 days.

If you count out the sunrises/sunsets on Coruscant, it’s 7 days. But Rebels says that Luke and Leia were born 2 days after Order 66, despite RotS showing them being born 1 day after Order 66, so it must be 8 days. But there’s no reason you can’t just stuff in a 9th day so this was just an opportunity to flex knowledge of a movie I don’t even like.
