6 film trilogy "Faces" Covers
Time

I would not show the second eye, as that is what the originals look like.

I like the covers, but for

TPM, definitely keep Darth Maul, but I would use a Naboo starfighter or maybe the queen’s ship. (EDIT) now that I think about it, maybe use Darth Maul’s ship. One of the three is fine.

AOTC, I would keep Fett, but I would use the battle of Geonosis to match the Hoth battle on TESB.

ROTS, I would use the Emperor or maybe even Anakin for the face, and I would keep the lightsaber fight between Anakin and Obi-wan, just like the ROTJ original with Vader and Luke.

This way, the themes match.

HI-Res Poster Art
Time

Thanks Willrow-Hood, I just noticed one mistake on the RotS poster, Mon Mothma is quite happy for a film that is supposed to be sad, I need to change that. I want to work with the color palette on that poster as well, maybe even swap out the duel with a better picture of the duel with better colors.

I’m like George, I’m never happy with my work and try and improve on it constantly. I have a family and work, so it makes it very hard to put just a few minutes a day on it.

Edit: I forgot to add the droids. I’m going to put Grievous on the Attack of the Clones poster, then shift a few characters around on the ROTS poster and maybe see if I can add the Emperor as well.

HI-Res Poster Art
Time

I have been working on this for awhile, a long while. I wanted to capture the 1997 SE Drew Struzan poster feel that he did for the original Trilogy, but for the Prequels. I did many versions of this, but today, I’m going to reveal what I have done so far. I need input as to what I should do, what I should delete, and what I should keep. Like I said, I have been improving on this multiple times. I need to know what I can do to fix it.

Personally, I don’t like how the Episode III Revenge of the Sith poster turned out. I can’t figure out what is wrong with it or even how to fix it. I have also accounted for Star Wars Rogue One and wanted to hint at that film as well.

Let me know what you think.

Most pointless Special Edition change?
Time

I didn’t get a few changes that George decided to change, for instance…

o The Ben Kenobi scream - First it sounded like an elephant, but it sounded more scarier, then in 1997 SE, it was like a whistle, lol. Then they changed it yet again in the dvd release in 2004.

o The Luke falling down the shaft scream or no scream? It’s clear he didn’t want to add that in the first place, but maybe he ran out of money and just said screw it, but in 1997, he added the Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Which sounded a bit ridiculous, but then in the 2004 dvd release, it disappeared.

This leads me to believe his employees must have said this doesn’t look or sound right, do you want to change this George? Yeah, just come up with something.

o I wish he would have made the Ewoks more ferocious and started chewing on the stormtroopers and made it more scarier. The stormtroopers would be running in horror and scared. They look harmless, but make them mad and you have a Wolverine/Tasmanian Devil on your hands.

With just about everyone wearing a helmet, a mask, or a suit, you can always go and change those things that you dislike about the film. You can add scenes to make the film better. As long as it doesn’t contain any scenes with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher or Harrison Ford.

One of those scenes I would reshoot is the Wampa breaking in scene on Hoth. I understand why it was cut, it was a horrible suit to begin with, but also, the pace of the film. I still would like to see it reshot.

I’m not a purist, but I think some things should be changed, NOT everything, just a few things, and keep some of the older scenes of the Original film. I know if it’s not broken don’t mess with it, but I prefer to make the changes.

4 simple custom blu-ray and DVD covers to hold I-III, IV-VI, VII, and Bonus Materials
Time

Nice Natedeug. You should use the production art for Episode I, II, III and VII. Also, instead of the burned Vader mask, I would use Rey or Luke artwork for The Force Awakens. I would lose the Episode I, II, and III. Just use the name, like The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. But leave the Roman numerals on the spines.

This way it’s all production art and names.

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

Forgive me if somebody already stated this, but, I think the opening of Rogue One A Star Wars Story should open much like how Superman II opened, with flashbacks of what came before. They can show the beginning of the Empire from Revenge of the Sith until just before this story begins.

Have flashbacks of the Emperor and the Senate, Vader wiping out the remaining Jedi and alien worlds, more building of the space station known as the “Death Star.” with the John Williams Imperial March theme in the background.

That’s how I would do it. It’s different from the crawl.

They can also incorporate Mon Mothma scenes from ROTS into this as well.

Episode VII : <strong>The Force Awakens</strong> - film &amp; fan art, + covers etc
Time

I’m currently working on something that’s going to incorporate The Indiana Jones blu ray book set design, but I’m going to make 3 of them, one for each trilogy. I’m using the Yoda and Vader front covers for the design of the Prequel and Original Trilogy, and I’m currently working on the sequel trilogy front cover design using Kylo Ren. I ordered all the materials, but still waiting on one more thing. Once I put it all together, I will post it on here for everyone to see.

So far, the design is looking great. I have a couple of more things to finish, also, I’m waiting for some official Episode VIII pics as well, before I complete it. I might throw in a pic of Luke from the teaser, just so I can wrap it up. Unfortunately, I have a few long days at work next week, so I might have to postpone working on it until Friday.

Would you want to see Anakin or Obi Wan in the new trilogy, portrayed by their PT actors?
Time

Why do I have a bad feeling about this. What’s next? Bring back a much older Hayden to shoot the unmasking of Vader in Return of the Jedi, so that it all connects together nicely?

I heard rumors of Hayden returning for something (Rogue One perhaps?) I think if they do bring him in for VIII, that he gives Luke some final knowledge before disappearing for good. I really don’t think it’s for VIII, but I could be wrong.

I also heard Ewan McGregor is returning as well. I guess we’ll find out.
