Way too much filming equipment. I mean, it isn’t actually too much, but it’s really expensive. The film industry has a really high barrier for entry. Gotta get lights, cameras, tripods, actors, sets, and of course good scripts. It’s a lot of money and even more work.
I started a playlist on this topic a while back, although at the moment it’s still very small.
Okay, looks like you guys are hard work putting the NSFW back into this thread, even if it can’t be explicit.

Too end TFA on such a climax only to be tossed away in TLJ felt like a complete middle finger, imo.
Which is why he should’ve thrown the lightsaber right before the wipe to credits.
He went with the choices that deepened character arcs rather than Wookiepedia pages.
But with Qui-Gon it makes sense because he’s a rebellious Jedi.
One of my actors just left the group chat without any explanation, and he won’t answer when asked why. With one actor short, I could’ve filled in myself, but with two missing? It’s back to the casting call, the single most painful part of these films. Why does this have to be so damn hard?! At this rate it’ll end up being shot Ryan George style.
Yeah, that’s actually good.
Thanks. It’s all the more reason why I’d support a fanedit where Qui-Gon (and maybe Dooku) is the only Jedi with a green blade. It gives Luke’s green blade some added significance, in representing a “fulfillment” of Qui-Gon’s goals.
Same. Giving all the Jedi both blue AND green in the Prequels was just bizarre and confusing.
I was actually planning on doing exactly that! Once I’ve rewatched it all I’ll see if our visions align and my take is redundant or if I feel the need to take a stab at it anyway. I suspect my trimming of The Hobbit might be a bit more conservative.
That depends on if they’re part of pre-rendered cutscenes.
The director of that film just passed. I haven’t seen Phantom, but I have seen Falling Down and it was great. Batman Forever, though…
Actually, we ought to have a discussion concerning the vision in TFA. Nothing came of it. Perhaps we could change that?
Don’t know about Baby Yoda but Old Yoda’s first name is certainly Minch.

Remove the Phantom Menace entirely, and then open Attack of the Clones with the music video for “The Saga Begins” by Weird Al before proceeding as normal.
Honestly, I’d be down for a version of TPM that plays The Saga Begins over the end credits.
I approve of Rick McCallum as Kitster. Hearing his voice coming out of a boisterous kid would be hilarious.
I know it’s never gonna happen, but my ideal version of Lego SW: The Skywalker Saga would be super meta. Robot Chicken voices, characters lampshading some of the more well known criticisms of the films, achievements named after George Lucas quotes, meme acknowledgements, etc… Of course the appeal would be too niche, and go over the heads of the target demographic, so we’ll have to settle for silly slapstick.

Has anyone thought about editing Han and Leia’s kiss scene in ESB to make it less… outdated?
Yes, I would appreciate anything that removes the “no means yes” aspect to that romance.
Have all the children voiced by various series directors. Young Anakin played by George Lucas. “There are too many of them” kid played by JJ Abrams. Broom Boy voiced by Rian Johnson, except he’s clearly improvising the alien language. Kitster played by Irvin Kirshner. Richard Marquand as Wicket.
You know the idea of Palpatine personally going ham on the Temple while kinda silly is rather intriguing.
I’d really like to make Exegol Coruscant. It ties everything together quite nicely. Palpatine’s lair being the Sith Temple beneath the Jedi Temple draws from Lucas’s ideas. I also think “Exegol was Coruscant all along” would be a fun light twist. The only obstacle is what to do with the space battle.
At the start of AotC, go full Wacky Dawg and have Jar Jar turn to the camera (we already have footage of him doing that) and apologize to the audience for having been sexually inappropriate off camera and explaining that he will no longer be a part of the series because of it.
Is there room for some Prequel references we haven’t thought of yet? Or maybe we should recap those we have.
I’m listening to the Mario 64 end credits theme as I read that and it actually feels really appropriate.
I actually could get behind that idea, especially since Leiah being a Jedi amounted to nothing.
See that’s part of why I want this change: it’s a plot point that amounts to nothing. The other reason is that it’s universe shrinking to make every
The biggest thing i liked about it was simply Vader using it against Luke.
Which is apparently why it was added in the first place. When Yoda says there is another, it could just as easily be taken to mean Vader.
But I’m getting off topic. This would be better suited to the OT Radical Redux Thread.
If I were to edit the original, Leia being his sister in the first place would go bye bye because it’s some of the most incredibly sloppy writing in the series’s history.
