A New Hope 2019 edit Edition

If you could make Luke into a girl, make Vader younger, make Kenobi’s character not force sensitive, increase the size and power of the death star but change it’s name, upgrade the x-wings and make Wedge more like Han Solo, make Yoda into a woman and change his appearance, oh and change the name of Tatooine 😉

In all seriousness, I thinK it’s more important that you make an edit that is originally your idea. Sounds like Adywan’s revisited or Harmy’s Despecialized Editions would meet your fix.

The Force Awakens - PG edit

I also have young kiddos and made a Youngling Edition of ESB for them. Need to find time for a ROTJ Youngling edition.

Anyway, I think strategic cuts that remove the more intense elements would make the movie PG. Vader choked out the captain in ANH and Luke’s aunt and uncle were shown as burnt skeletons. I think those scenes, especially the latter, are more intense than most things in TFA.

I’d recommend the following:
-Cut away or remove Lor’s death
-Cut away or remove the village massacre
-Tone down Poe’s interrogation scene
-Minimize on screen fatalities throughout
-Cursing isn’t terribly hard to edit out, my Heir to the Force edit removes it.
-Remove Finn skewering the stormtrooper and some of the more in your face deaths during the Takodana scene.
-You could get creative and have a stormtrooper shoot Han to lessen the creep out factor, but you’d lose the impact if the scene and plot point of the two movies thus far.
-Leaving in Ren’s tantrums may actually make the movie lighter for a kid.
-Not sure if you can do anything about Ren vs Kylo

A simple ANH and RotJ idea

In my idea I thought that it would only necessitate pieces from the one side to be obliterated. The only thing they really needed from the death star was the super laser. A crawl could indicate that the weapon was crippled and that final repairs to the super laser are almost complete. That would attribute to the same weakness of the core, etc. That we see in ROTJ and why the need for a shield.

Star Wars: The Coaxium Heist

A little disappointed. My Thor edit was a test for using an iTunes file as a source and it worked great, imho. After a few renders of The Coaxium Heist I’m just not satisfied with what is being produced from my Solo iTunes source. I’ve tried a total change up to the color correction to see if it’s due to the secondary correctors I have in place, but it’s still looking softer and more pixelated than I was expecting. I don’t want to increase the bitrate higher than the source as it won’t really do anything besides inflate the file size…sigh

I’ll be hunting for a good price on a Solo Blu Ray to create a lossless source. I originally told myself that I didn’t want this movie, then a great price on a digital code presented itself and I gave it a go. After the many hours of interacting with this film I’ve become pretty fond of it. I should have just bought the Blu Ray to begin with and stopped kidding myself that I wouldn’t buy a Star Wars movie…I bought TLJ and I thought Solo was better… :rolleyes:

Sorry, didn’t mean to create unnecessary hype. I want this to be the best it can be before sharing.

Star Wars: The Coaxium Heist

I stepped away from this project for almost 2 weeks just to give myself some fresh eyes on it. I just finished up the final touches and started the render. This one is done and should be available in the next few days. 😃
My utmost respect goes out to all you colo(u)r correction all stars out there. You know who you are 😉

Thanks again for the encouragement everyone!
