Wow! That song synced to the lightsaber training moment works… surprisingly well. It sounds brand new but the key notes really drive at nostalgia in an effective way.

This was also the movie that introduced me to fan editing. I would be interested in checking this out!

Thanks,
Adam

It’s not a song. It doesn’t really fit a star wars movie in my view. It changes the scene so instead of fear Like shows awe and nostalgia but then it goes on a little too long. I would have ended just after the rock is cut and we see Luke’s expression.

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>1080p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>

One thing I’ve never seen fixed… When the Tantive is damaged and being dragged into the Devastator hanger we hear a physical scraping which I think is meant to be the docking claw. The actors react to it but then the next FX shot has the ship still being pulled into the hanger. It would be good if an FX shot was timed to those reactions showing the docking claw grasping the ship and maybe a hint of the boarding crew moving towards cutting through the door which happens almost immediately after. Or maybe just changing the sound to something electrical to suggest the tractor beam has them rather than a physical scraping sound.

“Dark Leia,” much like “Dark Luke,” is an incredibly stupid idea. We don’t want to see “evil” versions of the classic heroes.

It’s not as stupid as the one time I saw a prequel rewrite that had Luke and Leia being the product of Vader raping the Padme equivalent.

You don’t. Leave me out of this we biz 😁

Sorry, but that’s almost certainly not a good idea, even for a rewrite. A vengeful Leia becoming the new emperor would be even more of a depressing ending than what we got, and it just doesn’t make sense for the character. She got her home planet blown up by the Empire, and now she wants to emulate them?

Victims often become monsters. Vader could see the potential in her. She choked Jabba. Stood over Lando as Chewie choked him. There is much of Vader in her. The ST is missing a story that needs telling. Anakin was never the fallen hero because we never got to like him. Leia could have given that idea real gravitas. Carrie would have loved being a villain.

I still think we missed a grand opportunity in the sequel trilogy. Consider the chaos of the last years of the Republic. Putting things back together after ROTJ would have been deeply frustrating for Leia. She has the Skywalker blood. She lost her home. The war as left a squabbling mass of political intrigue. She could have invented the First Order. To give the Republic something to unite against but eventually the allure of the powers she was using could have corrupted her. Imagine the reveal that it wasn’t Palpatine pulling the strings of Snoke but our beloved princess. Wouldn’t that explain why Luke would lose faith? Especially if she had warped her own son into becoming the new Vader. Rey could just be the Force readdressing the imbalance as it did with Anakin. How the hell someone would edit the material to make this work I don’t know. Perhaps replacing the Smoke model with a cowled figure that could add plot changing exposition. Just imagine Kylo’s face when Snoke says" I am your mother"😁

I’ve probably mentioned this before but I always wanted the Jedi of the Old Republic era to only have blue lightsabers. That way Luke’s ROTJ one has more significance. A potential opening scene cold be Luke in his X-wing. Flying near Yavin trying to salvage a Kyber crystal from the debris cloud of the Death Star. As he reaches out with the Force. Vader telepathically tries to contact him but he shrugs it off. A crystal fragment is found. Luke pulls it to the ship and Artoo captures it with his claw arm. It is green because of its prior use in the super laser. Palestine turns the crystal sacred to the Jedi into super weapon. Luke restores it.
