Andor: The Movie Omnibus (Four Movies; Nothing Removed) [4/4 Season One Workprints Available!]
Time

It’s coming along! Just needing to find the time- I might have some meaty time to deep dive it a couple of weekends from now. The third movie is an absolute beast- so much prison content, I need to rebuild a lot of audio transitions. But I’m chipping away.

I totally understand how it is to try to find the time needed. Thanks for all your work!

As Dev Dog already said, that’s insane! I can’t wait to see your edits to be completed! Though, I suggest you to open a separate thread for them.

Agreed. I don’t want to take any attention away from DevDog. He’s got a cool project going here that people should be following.

As to the concept of what you’re doing, I more prefer them to be separate characters, as I really like all of them and don’t want to use one over the other.

I totally get where you’re coming from. In my project, the ideas behind Legends and Canon are blended to put a new spin on the story. Admittedly, this approach will not be for everyone, but I saw it as a fun challenge to try to merge the new canon into the old Expanded Universe (which I love).

Anyway, I like your ideas, and I can’t wait to check out your edit!

Hey, I’ve been working on a sequel duology too! In some areas, our ideas are quite different, but in others, they are surprisingly similar.

My edit is a merging of Legends and Canon in which Ben and Jaina (Rey) are the Solo twins. Jaina is stolen from Coruscant as a small child by bounty hunters who intend to sell her to the Empire, but then for reasons unknown, abandon her on Jakku. The trauma of her abduction causes Jaina’s memory of her origins to be suppressed.

Palpatine does not appear. Snoke is the villain throughout (even on Exegol!).

Willow: The Tir Asleen Cut (A 21C Peasant Extended Edition)

Willow: The Tir Asleen Cut (A 21C Peasant Extended Edition)

With the Willow TV series now upon us, I thought it would be a perfect time for me to share my Willow: The Tir Asleen Cut with all of you fellow fan-edit fans. I completed this cut several years ago, but this is its first public release.

The four deleted/extended scenes I have added needed a lot of care to make them flow into the rest of the film, and though they do not add all that much more run time, they bring in the very interesting subplot of Sorsha and her father. Suddenly, Sorsha’s conversion, as well as the importance of Tir Asleen and its king, make a whole lot more sense and add significant depth to the story. All of the new material takes place in the second half of the film.

A couple of very minor trims were made to the theatrical version simply to suit my taste. Everything else is intact.

I’m not able to check my PMs or even this forum all that often, so look me up here for more info on how to watch. https://www.reddit.com/r/fanedits/?f=flair_name%3A"Feature"

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the George Lucas classic as it has never been seen before!

The Rings of Power - The Film Cut [Released - Workprint stages finished]
Time

Thank you for tackling this project! I’m glad to see it was you, as I’ve been a fan of your work for a long time.

The Lord of the Rings is my favorite trilogy of all time as well, so I’ve had a cautious approach to the Rings of Power. Because I have done so many fan edits for my personal viewing, I was considering the possibility of editing the series myself, but I just don’t have the time at the moment to put into so large a project.

In the end, I decided (despite being a Prime Video customer) to pass on watching the series altogether and put my hope and trust in a talented fan editor with a love for LOTR.

Over the years, I have seen a number of fan edits (ones said to be great improvements over the originals) before ever having seen the originals themselves (although I did purchase copies before my viewing). And I must say, it’s kind of nice once in a while to be able to lean on the hindsight of a good fan editor so that your first experience of a story is aided by their vision.

Best of luck with the finishing touches. And thank you once again for taking this on!

Star Wars: Kenobi | A Star Wars Legends Re-edit [WIP]
Time

One of the major issues that I had with the show (and one of the very first things I tackled in my personal edit) is that Leia is portrayed as being so sassy.

This is a major misunderstanding of what makes a strong child character. Even if the writers were trying to make this some sort of an arc for Leia, it just doesn’t sit well that she would be so disrespectful to legitimate authority and, at the same time, so wise beyond her years. I was fine with her telling off her cousin, but her rudeness to her mother and to Obi-Wan made her virtually unlikeable. And Obi-Wan was basically sealed as a loser by constantly getting dissed and one-upped by a spoiled child. Fortunately, with a number of small cuts here and there, Leia came much more in line with what we should expect from her — gutsy but classy, outspoken but just. She can still have a character arc without her starting out as a total brat.

Enough of my ranting!

Overall, I’m really liking your Legends approach. Can’t wait for more details!

STAR WARS - A New Hope [Modernized] [Prequel-OT Bridge]
Time

Anjohan said:

SC38 will be mixed in at the end of the film, BUT - with that being said - I will definitely have to do a lot of rotoscoping work because there are many flaws between that footage and the original film. The background lights change intensity and sometimes shades of white all over the place, and the corridor also looks to get bigger as we switch to the SC38 footage. But I’ll have to see when I start work on that.

First off, I tip my cap to Fixinitpost for their awesome work on SC 38 Reimagined. Second, I think most of us would agree that simply inserting SC 38 into A New Hope is just too jarring. Third, after Vader’s performance in Rogue One, the duel in ANH just doesn’t hold up when viewing the films in chronological order. I grew up with the OT and I love it as it is, however, updated versions are cool too.

For inspiration, I thought I’d share my current cut of this scene. I created some new composite shots and kept tweaking old and new to bring things closer together. My goal was to use as much of the original duel as possible, while only using SC 38 to supplement. Is it perfect?..No, but it certainly gives Vader the ferocity we have come to expect, especially toward his old master.

The video is in 1080 if you download it.

Mando EP3: A New Path (A Book of Boba Fett Edit) [RELEASED]
Time

Great work as always and thank you for sharing your workprint.

I’m left with one major thought:

This is probably just my preference, but I feel like it would be more compelling to end the film with Grogu trying to make his decision. The resolve afterward of him in the ship with Mando just comes too quickly (not your fault — just what you have to work with). Plus, the suspenseful ending could be intriguing.

I know that we don’t know what to expect in the coming season, but one way or another, we will see Grogu end up with Mando, so his decision will be apparent in the next film. Also, the current closing shot could very well be used in that film.

Even if we were never to get another season, I still find that ending to be the most interesting and thought-provoking.

Just my thoughts

Thank you again for the chance to view in advance. I look forward to the finished product!

BATMAN & ROBIN: DEEP FREEZE (Major Batman & Robin edit RELEASED)
Time

I’m really looking forward to this!

A couple years ago, I tried watching the old Batman movies in black and white, and wow what a difference! Everything felt different, and even the campy stuff seemed just dark and creepy. With your cuts and new score, this should be a huge improvement on an otherwise disaster of a film.

THE MANDOVERSE (The Mandalorian Season 1 to 3 & The Book of Boba Fett) | 10 Feature-Length Chapters
Time

I’m working on something quite similar. And I agree with you that no matter how many fine edits are being made by others, we all still have our own vision of how we want to see these stories play out. That’s why so many of us have done our own prequel and sequel edits!

In my cuts, the “present-day” Boba material will become very Mando-centric and will appear as a Mandalorian film. The flashback footage will serve as an anthology film to the Mandalorian story.

Anyway, I’m glad to hear you have a new project going. I’ve really enjoyed your work in the past, so I’m looking forward to seeing these new edits.
