And then Vader’s stepping on the robes turns into a curb-stomp of the mangled body. I’m liking where this is headed.

Princess Leia should wear in every scene a new costume. It will be a subtle delicate profound hint that she is Padmes daughter. The unbreakable link between the PT and the OT will be much much much more unbreakable with this enhancement. And it adds so much more layers of story, drama and cloth to the overall arc … called … the tragedy of Darth Vader … which was envisioned by visionary film maker George Lucas.

Rogue One is redundant. Just play the first mission of DARK FORCES.

There’s hundreds of changes that should be made in the future, actually.

I propose a whole new Special Edition of Attack Of The Clones with updated VFX, alternate takes of some scenes and deleted scenes re-inserted as well as the missing John Williams score. While you’re at it, try to better flesh out some of the film’s main plot points. By all means, create new characters or record new scenes with the original cast to make it fit better with the current Lucasfilm canon. After all movies are never finished – they’re just abandoned. So why not revisit arguably the most unfinished part of the entire Star Wars saga?

And have Vader yell “It’s all your fault! You were jealous! You were holding me back!” at the top of his lungs while doing it.

It’s like poetry.

Holy crap. I’d actually watch that Special Edition!

EDIT: Just figured out where that over-the-top bad dialog came from. I thought it was Elizabeth Taylor or Jennifer Jason Leigh at first, ha!

But for real, Dennis Lawson dubbing over Wedge’s lines in IV and V would have been nice. It would have eliminated “Fake Wedge” before “Fake Wedge” became a thing!

he was simply checking the cloak to make certain the body was completely gone.

Actual, Literal Laugh Out Loud

Also, not sure if serious…

I was half serious and yes I know its silly. :p

I just don’t get how him checking the cloak doesn’t make sense in the context of the series if it apparently does in the context of a standalone. Just asking for elaboration.

Because they had pyrotechnics for the actual Strike on the cloak dummy (it was meant to have flames) Vader stomping on the cloak would presumably been to put the flames out although what is shown is not a cloak on fire or any smoke even.

Probably they used a shot of a test of Vader putting out the flames with his foot rather than him actually putting out the flames with his foot.

You can see the cloak pyrotechnics in the documentary empire of dreams.

Bit of flames on the strike missing

On foot stimp Smoke is missing basically

Swap the dummy for Obiwan like adywan did is also good idea.

Super samurai!

Nobody could be bothered to drill a hole in the floor and feed a pipe with smoke coming out from the cloak. Hindsight is a beutiful thing but Obi-wan death was not always planned so nobody thought about it until it was already shooting. Too late.

Anakins Body should disapear problem is he was demasked when he died. You could look at Vader having his machine body left behind and his human parts disappearing I suppose… His head vanishing when he dies might look incredibly stupid while luke looks on. So a good call to not do that works ok I think. His head dissapearing might work on a gentle fade if done right would need music.

Here is a few of my own that is one of those “should be” I think…

Replace the Black triangle 3P0 is waving to with the missing sandcrawler element or an image of the sandcrawler.

Put the tantive in the clamp under the star destroyer.

Restore Ponda Babba’s original arm chopped off.

Add missing star destroyer when falcon flys away from tattooine.

Remove Alderran from deathstar viewscreen so Leia does not look silly until it is announced planet of Alderaan. Use only one version of alderaan matte element. Have stars and planet go in opposite directions on alderaan viewscreen shot.

Add missing shot of viewscreen with stars after deathstar escape. “Are they away?”

Use alternate Angle for Han running up the ramp Docking bay 94.

Add alternate angle for Motti so his face is in camera when explaining final checks complete and viewscreen graphic.

Add a shot of smoke from behind sand dunes for establishing shot sandcrawler destroyed.

Uncensor cell block gunfight.

Put dish on the falcon docking bay 94

Make new binary sunset sky to remove bad matte shot.

Add short dialogue extension conference room scene.

Remove rubbish special edition CGI from mos eisley and go back to the original also remove Jabba. Make a nice matte painting establishing shot of mos eisley job done. Restore storm trooper waving through sleek yellow and black landspeeder.

Restore Han pulling a face at Chewie on Yavin Base

Cut to close up Dodonna “May the force be with you” end of briefing.

Restore the original take off from Yavin but put the Massasi temple in the shot. Then cut to Space leaving atmosphere.

Restore at least the audio “Let’s get out of here before that thing goes supernova” prior to death star explosion. And add the chain reaction to the surface of the deathstar. Show Tarkin watch the viewscreen go off.

Restore original death star explosion and alterate explosion out of x-wing back window on “may the force be with you always” luke in cockpit.

Put all sequences in the correct order of chronology and add any laser missing elements.

Fix battle of Yavin sequences missing shots elements and scene orders.

Create chasm matte of abyss when luke looks down death star bridge shoot out.

Fix death star sphere graphic

Add live action close ups for storm troopers riding Dewbacks alternate take.

Add missing shot of sentry ships tie fighters before the rumbles and “here they come”

Restore missing scene of holo chess pieces stop motion animation.

Replace or improve Matte paintings of death Star docking bays.

Use 81 star destroyer opening shot flyover first scene.

Fix Green lasers missing yellow core and going turqoise / cyan.

Use Alternate angle for Vader swipe at Ben Kenobi during duel where Vader strikes the wall from trailer.

Restore Greedo scene to original version but use wide angle from SE for Han Killing Greedo.

Use alternate takes for cantina Dr evanzan approaching Luke. Han Jenny Kissing. Move Greedo spying on Han back to original placement. Move when Luke and Kenobi leave cantina Insert Gasmask Character to join the Han and greedo scene together rather than broken timeline.

Restore Original Destruction of Alderaan special effects and fix music cue removing small footage overun mistake of tarkin from behind mouthing a line with no audio. Also fix Vafer misiing chestplate.

For the death of John Doe x-wing pilot restore the explosion from the trailer for his death and move the x -wing destroyed travelling across the surface prior to luke making his attack run that is destroyed by surface gunfire.

Add Red leaders dive on the trench that is missing.

Fix Luke flying being chased by tie fighter missing background element. Should be up and away from surface seen in concept art drawings. Replace the moment Luke is hit by laser fire which is actually porkins being hit by laserfire. So correctly the tie fighter scores a hit and not surface guns.

Show a tie fighter in the trench shooting for gold leaders death vaders Tie shooting for Biggs death short inserts. Sloppy footage overuns.

Fix only 2 xwing rather than 3 fighters appearing for intial Luke Biggs and wedge attack run. “We’re going in we’re going in full throttle”

someone else came up with this idea but I agree with it: during the Jabba scene in ‘A New Hope’, rather than have Han step on Jabba’s tail, the image cuts to a close-up of Boba Fett.

Film a new scene to further add to the Palpatine - Vader hologram scene where Vader talks to Palpatine’s secretary and waits on hold for 3 minutes until Palpatine appears.

Use the Force, Joh Yowza.

Carry the changes made to Cloud City’s windows over to every shot that features those windows, so they’re not inconsistent anymore.
