<strong>Revenge of the Sith + The Clone Wars 4 hour Supercut 2020</strong> (V3) (Released)
Time

Okay I just got done watching this, and I loved it. I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to an unmerged RotS after this, it just meshed so perfectly in my opinion.

Only two minor issues stood out to me:

  1. The scene where Obi-Wan has a hologram conversation with Ahsoka, are you sure that scene is supposed to take place after Obi-Wan arrives on Utapau? The way he says “I’m being sent to hunt down General Grevious on Utapau”, makes it sound like he hasn’t gone there yet. Would this scene fit better a bit earlier, right before Obi-wan leaves?

  2. If you decide to keep the final Vader scene as a post credits scene, I think you should have it fade to black at the end. It currently ends abruptly, which is awkward.

Now I just really need a movie edit of Rebels so I can have a more concise conclusion the Vader/Ahsoka and Obi-Wan/Maul story arcs without having to sit through all the filler.

This sounds great.

Ultimately what I really think we need is an edit of everything from the beginning of Clone Wars to the end of Rebels streamlined into a series of movies with all the filler thrown out and all the arcs spliced together properly. So a couple CW movies leading up to a merger of RotS and SoM, followed by a couple movies with the important bits from Rebels leading up to R1 and the OT.

My personal edit of A New Hope (with SC38 Reimagined) (Released)

So, I’ve been planning a chronological Star Wars marathon of every show and movie, and I really wanted a version of A New Hope that incorporates FXitinPost’s SC38 Reimagined. ForceGhostRecon’s edit was the best one out there, as he did a great trim down of SC38 that makes it less excessive. However, he altered the opening using Rogue One footage, thus rendering his edit incompatible with Rogue One. I wanted a version that adhered to canon and fit with every other movie, including Rogue One, so I decided to make my own edit.

I used ForceGhostRecon’s edit as a base, but restored the original opening, the original Death Star explosion, and the Special Edition scenes. I also made an alternate version that still excludes the Jabba scene (on the one hand, it’s canon, and I kind of dig the bizarre novelty of seeing a CGI alien in a Star Wars movie from 1977, but on the other hand the movie is better without the scene, so I figured I’d just have both options).

I’m really happy with the end result. I feel like the new fight scene between Obi-Wan and Vader really flows well as a follow-up to what we saw Obi-Wan and Vader were capable of in Episode 3, Rebels, and Rogue One. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely mine.

If anyone’s interested in checking it out, feel free to send me a PM.

Would love to check it out

It’s been sent.

SC 38 Reimagined is prequelized junk. Vader needlessly calling his lightsaber to his hand telekinetically is proof enough of that.

Perhaps the original duel is a tad too clunky and claustrophobic. Perhaps it could do with a facelift. But this overwrought masturbatory exercise isn’t the way towards doing that.

What’s “masturbatory” about showing Vader actually use the Force? Why shouldn’t space wizards with cool space wizard powers be shown using their cool space wizard powers?

Because subtlely trumps sound and fury signifying nothing.

It signifies Vader’s high level of power and skill in Force, setting him up to be an incredibly daunting challenge for Luke to face in the future.

You’re missing the point again. The most important line, which I noticed that sc38 deleted, is “You can’t win, Darth. If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” Obi Wan isn’t trying to win, he’s trying to delay Vader so that Luke and friends can get to the Falcon. The moment he sees Luke is okay, he lets himself be killed because he knows he’s much more useful as a disembodied voice/force ghost that can give guidance to Luke.

They didn’t delete that line, it’s still in there.

It’s not about fighting style, it’s about choreography. Obi-Wan vs Maul in Rebels and Vader vs Luke in both ESB and RotJ were very well choreographed fights. The original Obi-Wan vs. Vader fight was very sloppily choreographed because of a mix of factors: Alec Guinness was older and almost certainly didn’t take the concept of lightsaber fights very seriously in general, they were using fragile sticks that they were worried about breaking, and they had a limited budget and tight schedule and obviously didn’t prioritize spending a lot of time on multiple reshoots of the saber fight just to get it looking good.

SC38 Reimagined kind of goes over the top, sure, but it’s undeniably better choreographed than the original. I personally think the trimmed down edit of SC38 Reimagined works best. It focuses on Obi-Wan’s defensive fighting style established in the prequels (which is how he’s able to hold his own against Anakin’s natural raw strength), while demonstrating Vader’s sheer rage and aggression without going overboard.

I also personally find it a bit odd to complain about it not fitting in terms of special effects. The special effects aren’t good enough in ANH for any of it to actually look real, you really have to stretch your imagination no matter what you do. If I can suspend my disbelief for a guy in a rubber mask from a halloween store, then I can suspend my disbelief for a cool fight scene.

By the way, I guess I should mention in this thread too, but I made my own personal edit of ForceGhostRecon’s edit that restores the original opening so it is compatible with Rogue One. You can PM me if you want to check it out.
