The Mandalorian Season 1 & 2 Mixed Edit Ideas? (Spoilers)

Starting a thread to ask if anyone will make a new MANDO fanedit when the last episode releases in a few weeks. After watching episodes of season 2, i feel this season has so much filler or some scenes are just not needed and was hoping that someone would make a fanedit that combines S01 & S02 into one Movie type thing.

People could list ideas and we go on from there. Wish i could make it but my editing aint good.

List of Ideas:

Mando and the Frog Lady do no go to the icy planet and just head to their destination to get the eggs safely away (Idk how it would work).

If anyone wants links to fanedits that I said I can get, please add me on discord @Moiisty#0601

How would you deal with the damage done to Razor Crest?

This season has no continuous momentum & no building tension or stakes. Sure now that the child is abducted (once again) there’s a stake but it’s not as tight nor fresh as season one, and there’s nothing organically cinematic about tying season 2s episodes together in any way.

I’m thinking the base raid maybe could be integrated into season a 1 film edit but everything else would be somewhat at odds. It’s truly meant to be episodic,this season especially so.

But for the most part season 2 just feels like “set up some spin-offs and season 3” in a nutshell.

Maybe someone could do something to fix up the ship digitally

I feel like all the episodes are just filler until they go to ashoka then to the pillar thingy with boba fett

Yeah I mean maybe from Ashoka onwards a movie can be made but it still wouldn’t be such a compelling one imo. I still like the season as fan pleasing fluff but it doesn’t hold a candle to the last one.

I edited together season one into a single movie and it worked really well. As others have said, season 2 is very different and I’m having trouble putting together a plan for it. The Razorcrest is also a massive problem because it will limit the ability to move episodes around. Digitally altering it is way beyond most amateur editors.

To be completely honest, I’d download and watch the shit out of a cut of the Mandalorian wherein a whole season is cut together, only leaving out the recaps and end credits, preferably with timed English subs. I unfortunately have no talent or time or skill to do it, but even if it would be 4+ hours long, it would be practical for me. And now we have 2 full seasons, so 8-10 more hours of Star Wars content worthy of long runtimes.

This is almost what I did with mine. 4 x films approx 2 hrs 20 min each.
Trimmed two lines of dialogue.
Removed one scene that doesn’t work for me.
Moved three scenes:

  1. opens with mando as a kid being rescued (move #1)
  2. moves to peaceful village being attacked (move #2)
    and then episode 1 start

move #3 involves moving the ashoka scene scene that starts her episode to later in the episode so it looks like she comes to the village, says what she has to say, is rebuffed and then she and mando go after liberating the village (I had to cut one line of dialogue here to make it work).

Cut - mando’s skype session with gideon. Just doesn’t work for me.

Really wish Disney would release Mandolorian on physical home media for editing but who knows when that will happen.
