Star Wars Episode III: Labyrinth Of Evil (Finished!)
Time

I just viewed the 720p render of the edit with the commentary track, and I appreciate the decisions you made to bring ROTS more in line with the OT and your explanations as to why you took such actions.

I will say that I could barely hear your commentary during the climactic duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan as the film’s audio overshadowed yours. Do you plan on rectifying this in future?

The Usual <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

A fellow user on the Redux Ideas Thread said this concept would be near-impossible to implement into The Rise of Skywalker as is, so I feel it is worth sharing here as it seems more “radical” than what is being presented on the other thread.

Fanedit Forums user Gaith suggested that the film open with a funeral for Princess Leia before the opening crawl. This quote comes from the official thread for the movie:

Lucasfilm logo. “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”
SMASH CUT to a silent (with music) funeral scene. As with Glee and Cory Monteith, we all know why the character’s gone, so there’s really no need to explain it in-universe. (Canon sources elsewhere could officially designate it space cancer or whatever, but my idea lets the funeral be a tribute to Fisher as much as possible, just as the ending to Furious 7 was obviously for Paul Walker, rather than for Brian O’Conner.) Fade out.
STAR WARS title fanfare, crawl, movie.
In short, Fisher’s passing would be so significant that it would be the only time the Episode format of “A long time ago”, STAR WARS title fanfare, crawl, movie would ever be broken. I get that most don’t enthusiastically love Thor: The Dark World as I do, but I think the two-minute dialogue-free Frigga funeral is a freakin’ fantastic scene that would make an excellent model.

A very unique idea that unfortunately wasn’t taken advantage of.

Okay, hopefully my latest idea will garner better reactions from you guys.

Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread

Believe it or not, the Nostalgia Critic’s review of the film brings up a very interesting idea: there’s one point near the end of the video where the Mandalorian says, “Oh, I see. Because bloodlines don’t matter. She’s going to say her name is Palpatine, turning that evil name into something strong and hopeful.”

Yay or nay?

What I’m about to say may sound absolutely stupid to you all, but this comes from what I heard since the film was still in post-production, so I could be in the wrong for writing this post, but we’ll see what happens.

According to test screening reports, mainly orchestrated by YouTube user Overlord DVD, there was originally a scene during the climax where Palpatine’s force lightning blew up the Millennium Falcon, taking the lives of Lando, Chewie, C-3PO and R2, and was described in short as “the saddest moment in the film”.

As of now, there exists no substantial or conclusive evidence of whether or not this scene exists, but I am sure that some of you have contemplated how the Falcon should be dealt with in the film. The other day, I saw an old post on this thread describing the deaths of Lando and Chewie in the Falcon’s destruction, summed up as such:

The legends are dead.

No doubt destroying the Falcon in such a manner would have been a huge risk for J.J. Abrams or Lucasfilm to undertake, and I’ll be honest, I actually thought they were going to go through with it when I saw the film in 4DX 3D. I guess my assumptions were proven wrong.

Nevertheless, the very idea really puts new meaning to the phrase, “Let the past die. Kill it if you have to.”

Batman Forever Bonus Material
Time

While my current project, Batman Forever Noir, is on hold until my new desktop is sorted out, I thought I’d take this moment to discuss an idea that popped into my head just now. Since Batman Forever is one of the most fascinating movies I’ve ever come across, wouldn’t it make sense to archive as much of the film’s promotional and advertising material as possible?

More importantly, have any of you thought of it before? I think it would be awesome to kickstart this special project. Basically, we’d gather most, if not all, of the film’s trailers, TV spots, commercials, music videos, and BTS documentaries into one set.

I don’t quite know how to describe such an ambitious project, so I’ll leave it up to you to decide what needs to be done.

Hey. Wow, it’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it? Add this to the list of projects I started but never finished. Well, do know this idea has never left my mind. I’ve been experimenting on and off with how to make certain ideas a reality. The main difficulty has been the wand replacement idea. I thought I could accomplish this in a much simpler fashion than turned out to be feasible. However, I’ve been learning a lot with 3D modeling and really honing my visual effects skills, and I think I’ve figured out a way to accomplish it.

While this project is far from completely dead, it’s really evolved from my original idea, and I think it’s best to approach it on a film by film basis, rather than trying to tackle all of them simultaneously. As such, this thread will be pushed to the side and, at some point, I will create new threads to follow the progress of my HP project and the new direction they’ve gone.

I look forward to hearing your plans for Philsopher’s Stone.
