Appeal to gamers by changing the action sequences and lightsaber fights into a first-person perspective.

Appeal to gamers by inserting Sc. 38 Reimagined into ANH.

Appeal to gamers by (poorly) converting all scenes from all movies into 120fps.

That would make for some really short movies, too.

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

I don’t even think this is a bad idea, but add pop-up video style infographics giving in-universe trivia about various characters and events seen onscreen.

Early leaked HD copies of TLJ that made it onto piracy sites in January 2018 had this (but in Chinese).

This is such a good suggestion for this thread because of how believable it is that it would be suggested unironically.

During the order 66 montage, add in Jar Jar Binks, give him a lightsaber, and have him fend off clone troopers using the force before he dies heroically.

Give Finn a British, casual, mostly off-topic voice throughout.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Expand on midichlorians by dubbing in more exposition about them in the original trilogy.

“I know…somehow…I’ve always known.”
“That’s because of your Midichlorians, Leia.”
“…”
“Midichlorians are microscopic lifeforms that live inside your cells, telling you the will of the Force.”
“Like bacteria? Luke, what does this have to do with…”
“…But it’s also an energy field. Have you heard of the double slit experiment? Nevermind, it’s not a story your fake parents would have told you.”

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

As Anakin speaks with Bail Organa right before slipping away to meet with Padme in ROTS, and Bail says something like, “Well, I will do everything I can in the Senate,” add a response of, “Okay, yeah, whatever.”

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Oh, wow, that reminds me of a similar idea that was explored at a certain spot in Disney World.

My memory is pretty vague on it, but it was basically an arcade setup showing the Death Star I battle, and you got to hit different buttons for different sound effects, such as Goofy’s scream, etc.

I’ve only been to Anaheim, and even then, that was back in 2008. I’m guessing this is disney world only, since I’ve never heard of this particular attraction.

Still, having an x-wing pilot die while yelling a Goofy scream would be quite an experiment.

Redub the TLJ soundtrack with Evangelion music.

I actually think it’s an unusual idea rather than a bad one - I reckon it would be cool - but it tonally belongs in this thread more than any other.

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

I was trying to edit down the Maple Films version of the Hobbit to a particular runtime. Edit some of it into Star Wars to get rid of footage.

I actually toyed about week ago with the idea of a tragic Komm Süsser Todd ending for TRoS and meant to post about it here but forgot.
