Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (Silent Edit WIP)

 (Edited)

Just an idea I had for an edit that I’ve started on, and will probably finish since I have a few good ideas. It’s The Phantom Menace, but with a slightly adjusted story, a silent film look, and a soundtrack made primarily of OT music

Here’s a preview of it so far (Note, haven’t rewritten the crawl yet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0w3fR63UZA

Some minor changes:
-Padme is the Princess, not the Queen
-Naboo is Alderaan
-A few things have been renamed (The Jedi Council is now the Jedi High Council, thought it sounded more fantasy/cheesy. For the same reason the Galactic Republic is the Republic Galactica now.)
-The Trade Federation have become The Galactic Federation, an organization of disgruntled slave traders after Alderaan’s push to outlaw slavery

I have a few ideas in mind for new character arcs/twists, but for now I’m trying to think of how I should handle the Gungans.

The Galactic Federation, that sounds dope

I’m trying to think of a better title for this edit currently, “The Phantom Menace Silent Fan Edit” is a bit of a mouthful, and pretty… bland.

My current thoughts for the actual film are to not have a subtitle, instead just calling it “Star Wars”, but it’d be nice to have something to call it.

If anyone has any ideas, feel free to drop them!
