@DuracellEnergizer Do you plan on having it so your prequel trilogy rewrites won’t recycle key elements, plot points, and tropes from the original trilogy (e.g. the main hero getting his hand cut off by a villain, the exact same character pleading another family member to join him and rule the galaxy together, etc.)?

I’m going to avoid redundancy and Lucas-style “rhyming” whenever possible.

Take the Star Wars radio dramas and make them into animated films.

How, in all of the Hell, is this a “Bad Idea”?

It’s not “Bad” it’s more impossible. Not entirely so, but I imagine nobody would care enough to try to do that.

The first one is 6 and a half hours long. Empire is 5 hours, and Jedi is 3. That is a lot of animation.

Much of the radio drama is filler as well. The first 3 episodes of A New Hope are all set before the story of the film, and lots of stuff is added. I am sure some of it is worthwhile, but I think it is too much content to be worthwhile to animate.

Were it to be done, the audio would have to be cut down considerably, to keep it interesting to watch, and less work to animate. If we could convince Disney to waste a bunch of money animating it in 3D like the Clone Wars, that would surely be interesting. It would be a great resource for fanediting, at the very least.

Personally, I’d just animate the radio drama-exclusive scenes.

Going away? Post so here!
Time

Upon booting up my laptop today, it created a loud, harsh hum. The hum subsided seconds later, but the laptop’s been behaving erratically as of late, so I’m afraid it may be nearing the end of it’s life. And I don’t have a backup computer.

I’m not planning on departing, but if I should vanish into the ether one day soon, that’ll be the reason why.

I don’t see why not.

Which could be a hyperbolic statement.

But nah, take everything everyone says in these silly movies 110% literally. Then ask why Palpatine funnelled money into the Death Stars instead of just tearing planets apart with the Force.

I take it that there are many Jedi Orders and Leia is not Luke’s sister lol

I went with there being multiple Jedi sects in my last rewrite, but decided against that this time around. This time, there’s just one Jedi Order — a Jedi Order divided between honest, good Jedi like Obi-Wan and corrupt, statist Jedi. After Palpatine’s rise to power, the fallen Jedi assist the Empire in wiping the others out. As the Jedi Purge is winding down, the Jedi Council decides they’d rather run the Empire instead of following Palpatine and stage a coup, which end’s disasterously for them.

And Leia definitely isn’t Luke’s sister.
