I haven’t seen the miniseries yet, but for those of you who have: Would it make any sense to filter out the new extra scenes and try to insert them into the film making some sort of “Comprehensive Cut”?
You know, getting rid of all the edits for the miniseries (previews, etc.) and just putting the new stuff into the film…
I have done that. I removed the recap, intros and end credits from the mini series. Then I put the 6 chapter headings back in and added in the overture and a brief intermission.
3:11:30 (with overture and intermission)
