My son (Grade 6) and I are starting a full canon run (movies, TV, novels, comics…leaving out the stuff for younger readers) along with some Legends history of Revan, Bane & Plagueis thrown in. He’s almost done the Bane novels and he’s fully engaged.
As of this post, we’re just starting to build our viewing list which you can see here:
For the movies and TV series, we’re going to use Fan Edits whenever possible.
HAL9000: Prequels, Rogue One, New Hope & Empire, Sequels
Ziggyonice: Return of the Jedi (I still need to get this file)
I have copies of Smudger’s five Clone Wars edit. I’m just trying to figure out what else we need to watch from that series. We want to cut out all the silly stuff and really focus on what drives the main canon arc forward. Here’s what I have listed:
Clone Wars I: Army of the Republic
Clone Wars II: A New Threat
Clone Wars III: Children of the Force
Clone Wars IV: A Galaxy Divided
Clone Wars V: Rise of the Dark Side
Clone Wars: Season 5 (episodes: 2-5)
Clone Wars: Season 5 (episodes: 1, 14-16)
Clone Wars: Season 5 (episodes: 17-18)
Clone Wars: Season 5 (episodes: 19-20)
Clone Wars: Season 6 (episodes: 1-4, 10-13)
Clone Wars: Season 7 (episodes 1-4)
Clone Wars: Season 7 (episodes 5-9)
Clone Wars: Season 7 (episodes 10-12)
Any suggestions on that set? Is that a reasonable list? Are there gaps in Seasons 1-4 I’m missing? Any other fan edits out there to replace Seasons 5-7?
My other option for the Clone Wars is EddieDean’s CONTINUITY CUT of TCW:Refocused.
Any recommendations for Rebels? Any fan edits out there? (same goal: something that focuses on driving the main canon arc forward and cuts out the silly and unnecessary stuff) My current plan if I can’t find any Rebels edits are to follow this list: https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-essential-star-wars-rebels-stories-every-fan-should-1843502861
