Why is that ironic?

Irony (one definition): “a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects

The old continuity made an effort to not kill any of the original main-characters, except for Chewie. And now the new series has pretty much done the complete opposite.

Not so much “made an effort” as “explicitly told by George Lucas”.

SOLO: A Star Wars Story: Fan Edit Ideas - ** SPOILERS &amp; PAJA INSIDE **

I like the idea of starting Solo at the heist. Everything before that was quite boring, now that I think about it.

The problem is if you start there you skip the setup of Han and Q’ira’s relationship and Han meeting Chewie.

Change the title to “The Kessel Run”

Going in, I thought that’d be a better title, as the film seemed to be an ensemble heist film that happens to include Han Solo, but upon seeing it, it’s not that at all. The Kessel is only a small part of it, and Han’s the only one who’s always there. It truly is Solo’s story.

How about, in the climax of AotC, Anakin doesn’t act like a child and rush forward into combat, getting his ass handed to him, and causing the fight to be lost?

And no Yoda - it’s odd, isn’t it, that he takes a clone ship to the bunker and arrives absent clone support?
Also, I tried to limit movie swordsmanship, ie fewer pirouettes and no “duel wielding”.

In short, no shots of Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Padme in the same gunship, cut, cropped, and painted out Anakin for the first half of the fight, and did the same for Yoda’s appearance, simply cut the center channel to remove Yoda’s grunting.

Brilliant! Saving that to my drive. The only problem is Obi-Wan’s body on the ground disappearing when Anakin arrives.

Here’s something I quickly threw together, just to see how it feels:

pass: asteroid

I don’t know if there should be music during the actual seismic booms, but maybe before and right after might work. I used Boba’s motif from Empire as suggested.

The music distracts way too much from the seismic booms. That bit at the end was good, though. Don’t think it’s necessary by any stretch though. The rest of the scene silent anyways.
