When you were introduced to Star Wars for the first time
Time

My first memory of anything Star Wars related was watching my dad play an arcade game where you have to fly a snowspeeder around and take out AT-ATs. I also recall there being a speederbike level. This was when I was around 4 or 5. I watched the 6 currently released movies on DVD around a year later, so the only Star Wars movies that I’ve seen in the actual theatre are TFA and Rogue One.

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

I just got back from my second viewing, and I noticed something interesting, I don’t think anyone else has pointed it out yet. When Jyn first sees Chirrut (Donnie Yen) outside the temple, he can be heard saying “May the force of others be with you”. I’m pretty sure this is a reference to the first draft of Star Wars, where the saying “May the Force be with you” was originally “May the Force of others be with you”. This also goes along with the fact that they are the “Guardians of the Whills” which is also a reference to the title of the first draft of Star Wars.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - FanEdit Ideas <strong><em>SPOILERS</em></strong>
Time
  • Add an opening crawl, but also release a version of the edit without it. It seems like people are disagreeing on if the crawl should be included or not, so you may as well let both groups be happy.
  • Re-edit the title card that says ROGUE ONE. To me it seems a bit out of place, and it drags on for a few seconds too long. Also the font that it’s written in also seems a bit out of place. I think that it would look better in the font that’s used for the promotional material for the OT. And keep in mind this is all just my opinion.
  • Do something to change the pacing of the first act. Everything seems to go by too quickly and it’s a bit awkward. I would think that it could be possible to edit this section of the film to help it flow better.
  • Re-edit some of Tarkin’s scenes. I will admit the CGI on him is great, but he still looks a bit off, especially in a scene where he is with real actors. It would be nice to see his scenes re-edited, at least so that he isn’t seen with an actor directly next to him. Also would also look better if there weren’t as many close-ups of his face. Cut to other actor’s faces instead to fix this problem. To me it seems like he looks better towards the end of the film, so it might just be his first few scenes that could use some touching up. Or maybe it’s just me… I don’t know.
  • Remove R2 and C-3PO’s cameo in the Rebel hangar. I looks like it was put in kinda at the last minute, and it doesn’t really match with the rest of the scene. I think it would be better if they were instead seen on Princess Leia’s ship in the background or something. Their cameo is a bit awkward, given the situation, it would look better if they were just in the background, and shown in a more appropriate environment. I don’t know how well this could be done given the fact that this is a fan edit, but maybe some footage from ANH could be used.

That’s really all I can think of, which actually shows how much I liked this movie. These are the only things that I thought could have been done better. Also keep in mind that this is all my opinion, some of this stuff could be done differently depending on who ends up doing the edit.

Star Wars TV Show Idea
Time

So, first off I would like to say this is not my idea. My friend came up with it and he gave me permission to post it here. Here’s the idea:

The main premise of the show is to explore the life of a minor character from one of the movies. Each episode centers around a different character, and the runtime is around 45 minutes per episode. The show would be great for learning more information about minor/background characters from the movies, and we would get a chance to see many new locations and creatures. The episodes would be shot in live action, and CG would be used sparingly, so it would somewhat reflect the original Star Wars from the 70’s. The idea is based off of Kevin J. Anderson’s “Tales From The” series where short stories about minor characters are explored. What do you guys think?

Am I the only one who thinks this looks stupid? The Imperial Ground Crew helmet it supposed to have a visor on it (as seen on both the action figure packaging and the lego minifigure). Why doesn’t her helmet have one? Won’t people be able to recognize her? Unless she flips a visor down or something immediately after the end of this shot, this makes absolutely no sense…

Does anyone else think that K-2SO might turn on the rebels at some point during the movie? He’s a reprogrammed Imperial droid that could be easily capable of killing them, and I would think that he could somehow be reverted to factory default. What if the Imperials reset him, causing him to attack the rebels? This seems like a very good plot device to me.

Except for that last one it just looks like his side cape dealie is pulled around to the front.

Why can’t R2-D2 make some new beeps? He just says the same shit over and over…

I think he has simpler vocal programming compared to other droids like Threepio or K2-SO. I would think that R2 has a set list of responses, and if he has to say something that isn’t in the list, he pieces a new sentence together using sections of his other responses.
