Except, isn’t the whole point of Rogue One that the people who got the plans aren’t really “special”? They’re not Jedi, or famous figures. They go on a secret mission, and they all die at the end, without anyone learning who they are. They’re just a bunch of regular folks who took a stand and achieved something incredible.

Rogue One is all about how the non-famous, forgotten people in history can still make a difference. The whole point of the movie is lost if Jyn Erso & Co. become legendary figures themselves, imo.

Agree, I feel the idea of iconic StarWars characters plastered on wall will degrade the film somewhat. I get Luke is a legend known throughout the galaxy but even the idea of directly seeing his image this was may feel a bit odd as a fan.

You have to kill him with the dark side in order to be possessed. And thankfully the Force ghosts we added in serve a purpose beyond fan service: they hold Palpatine’s spirit in place so it’s finally destroyed.

Agree thats always been my interpretation of it, Sheev struck down Plagueis with dark intent and got possessed probably like the many other Sith before him so Plagueis needed Rey to do the same but Plagueis ended up being destroyed by his own powers in the end as the ghost Jedis shielded Rey.

STAR WARS: Dueling With Fate - The Making of The Phantom Menace - Part 1 - Prequel Prelude
Time

The first part of a 13-part documentary series chronicling the making of Star Wars - Episode I - The Phantom Menace.

Part 1 is all about George Lucas writing the film from 1994-1997, and some of his hopes for the upcoming trilogy, of which he was not considering directing at all.

To show how much I love y’all:

I really like the ‘early morning’ aesthetic. It’s not as drastic, and more passable, than trying to make it look like night, and we do get that gradual progression of daylight setting in that implies the passage of time, not to mention it’s more visually pleasing.

Agree the morning light aesthetic added by NeverarGreat in his vid is very cool, just need to deepfake the already nice looking Leia vs Luke close up fight scene now for perfection. 😉

Might be too much work, but since Zorri wears a mask the whole time, we could redub her to fit whatever new narrative we wanted. For example, we could have her say Poe was just working as a spice runner undercover for the Republic, which is why Zorri is so pissed off at Poe (and would help alleviate some of the stereotype issues of making the Latino character a former drug runner.)

When Poe asks how long Kijimi has been like this, she could say not long after Crait or Skywalker. And when Poe starts getting down in the dumps about people losing hope, Zorri could tell him that these people have actually regained hope and are resisting.

And I don’t think the mask has to be perfect MR. Once we have puppets there, it’ll probably distract from any imperfections. Plus, it’s such a short shot anyway.

“Poe was just working as a spice runner undercover for the Republic, which is why Zorri is so pissed off at Poe” Brilliant idea RogueLeader as Poe previous spice running days feel so shoe horned in this films story.

Hal’s Rogue One edit (a half-assed version of DigMod’s) (Released)
Time

Hal 9000 said:

As cool as the idea is, I think I will leave the sequence of the post-Jedha scene as-is. I’ll remove Cassian’s pre-instructions about killing Galen Erso, though, as I think that’s a fairly elegant change that works well.

This is the way, best to try and keep as close to the original were possible.

Noticed a line which might be worth removing @ 1:32:03 when the rebels are attacking Scarif and Krennic tells an officer to lock the base down the officer replies surpised and asks “and close the shield?” well er… Yeah 😑

was you able to check that line out Hal?

Harry Potter Extended Editions (Released)
Time

First post! Just thought I’d drop a little message to show my support from this - I stumbled across it from Google after a little thought to myself about why there weren’t Directors Cuts of the Harry Potter films.

What’s been done so far sounds fantastic (a colour-corrected HBP in particular really interests me) - and I’d love for a release of 1-2 to be contained in this too (I own the extended Blu-rays, but a completed set would just be nice, no?). Plus, even though I adore Richard Harris, a deepfake to keep Dumbledore looking consistent throughout the films would be brilliant.

Thanks again for all your hard work - I’ve bookmarked this and will check in from time to time to see how this is going and hopefully engage with the community. 😃

If your looking for improved versions of the first two films you should check out Anjohans fanedits of those films here: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Harry-Potter-and-the-Sorcerers-Stone-Revisited-Released/id/17069

Hes looking to release V2 of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone - Revisited which includes deepfakes but not of Dumbledore though.
