So do you plan on removing all allusions to the Clones being on the Republic’s side? Not only does that sound like a nightmare but I just don’t see the point.

I wonder if footage of younger Christopher Lee could be used as a flashback?

Years ago I tried using footage of him as Dracula. Not sure if it was any good. What kind of flashback did you have in mind?

A really ambitious project would incorporate Grievous in all 3 somehow, like the guy who made him Maul.

Maybe…there is a way to incorporate grievous even earlier. Maybe into the ATOC droid army. Or even further into the Neomoidian army as a lowly TK4 Roger Roger droid who wants to be more.

Or even more ambitious…make him Darth Jar Jar after all.

If I had the deepfake skills, I would edit in Maul and Grievous and Dooku to meet.

Grievous could be leading the droid army in TPM in his natural Kaleesh form, then shows up rebuilt in AotC after being aboard the Donut when it explodes. Really, though, any such additions are beyond any of our skills.

Really, the most we could hope for is maybe adding him to the background of the Separatist meeting in AotC.

The Essential Star Wars Animated Series Episodes for Movie Marathon Inclusion
Time

Here’s a spreadsheet I made. It covers all of Clone Wars S1-6 and Rebels. I have notes indicating which episodes are part of which characters’ arcs. The Smudger movie edits and CW fortune cookies are included as a bonus. Arcs that were planned but cancelled with the show when Star Wars was acquired by Disney are included with light grey for those that were adapted into another medium and dark grey for those that never saw the light of day in any form. I haven’t seen Resistance or CW S7 so their documentation is very rudimentary and incomplete.

Based on my test shot, I’d say replacing Sidious with Dooku is perfectly doable, so long as we can find a good enough voice impressionist for him. Also, the dialog introducing Darth Maul would need to be trimmed to leave out the part about him being his apprentice.

Still, I can’t help but wonder if it’d be too strange for Dooku to be hooded. Oh well, I guess.

For TROS there is no way around the spirit transfer ritual. It’s an integral part of the plot, so discussion of its removal is moot.

Except you could easily make it so that sucking the lifeforce of the dyad was Palpatine’s plan all along, allowing you to remove any mention of soul transfer.

Would it be worth adding Palpatines transmission from Fortnite? That would make a good intro

We’ve discussed it extensively by now, but seeing as it’s the last film in the Saga, maybe we could break tradition the way I did with the end credits being quiet. Basically, open the film with Palpatine’s message interrupting the crawl. Wait no, that doesn’t sound good. Maybe what could work is instead of panning down to a ship or planet, the camera stays still on the starfield as Palpatine’s message begins playing. Queue a montage of the First Order, Resistance, and various planets listening to it.

But in all honesty, unless you wanna use it as a way to cut the opening lightspeed skipping scene, you might as well just do like Hal and throw into the briefing scene.

Even blue blaster-fire has been more associated with the clones/stormtroopers.

Actually, since the PT they’ve been pretty good at giving good guys blue and bad guys red. Case in point: the Resistance fire blue bolts.

I’m really debating whether I should use the purple lightsaber scene, because I can’t see the colour haha.

Personally, I think the purple saber is silly, but that’s because I like sticking purely to RGB for saber colors. Throwing random purple sabers in the mix I find confusing and visually jarring.

Idea for a way to tie the saga together: Adding audio from Jedi: Fallen Order and CW03 to the voices-of-Jedi-past scene to make Rey become a Jedi Knight.

No subtlety. I don’t like it.

Honestly, if people are so worried about consistency in Force lightning color, why not making it red in the other movies too? Oh, I guess that’d be way too much work, wouldn’t it. And god forbid we edit this site’s namesake. /s

That’s an interesting, but I’m not sure it would work. Many years ago, I tried mixing the escape from Naboo with the capture and Geonosis to have the Queen talk with Dooku, but the result was pretty bad. You really need to have shots of both parties, and cut to whoever’s speaking. The most you could squeeze in here would be Dooku saying the equivalent of “I’ll get you next time, Gadget” before tuning out.

Make Dooku a hologram throghout most of the movie and have him completely replace Palpatine role?

I’ve been wanting to do that for ages. Now with EbSynth and Deepfake technology, it might be possible. It sets him up as a unifying villain like Vader and Kylo. I’d actually done a test for a shot of Dooku over Sidious using EbSynth, but I don’t remember how it turned out.

Add Plo Koon’s voice, Ki-Adi Mundi’s voice, Shaak Ti’s voice, Kit Fisto’s voice, and Sassae Tiin’s voice into the Force ghost scene.

The only reason they included any background Jedi to begin with was to pass the Bechdel test. It would’ve been weird if it were just male voices.

Lol, I think everyone can discuss this in circles and it will never jibe when connecting to the series as a whole since George Lucas was clear: Sith don’t conquer death, only the Jedi could. So trying to make this jive with what GL has built and shown with what Disney has done simply cannot connect the dots.

Imo, it doesn’t violate anything. Palpatine isn’t living forever, he’s just Voldemorting; cheating death in little bits at a time, slowly losing his humanity in the process. He hasn’t conquered death, only stalled it.

JakeRyan is Trump in this scenario.

I haven’t seen the American but hearing it secondhand I remembered the last Canadian debate being much the same, like kindergarteners arguing.

Doctor Who - Fan Edit Ideas

Of course, given Bruno Langley is now a registered and convicted sex offender, it’d be replacing Luke with Adam instead. It would require setting Dalek earlier for timeline reasons (otherwise it would be set after The Sontaran Stratagem), and some brief acknowledgement from Luke of having met the Doctor before.

What's so great about ESB?
Time

Don’t get me wrong, it’s darn good film, but as far as Star Wars goes, it’s fairly middle of the road. Can somebody please explain to me why it’s seemingly universally considered the best in the Saga? Hoth is fun, albeit a little meandering initially. Luke and Yoda is all well and good, but Han and Leia’s storyline besides being fairly unengaging features some really creepy romance. The finale is pretty good, but I always feel bad for how everyone treats Lando. He comes to rescue you and the first thing you do is choke him? Really?
