How do I add trailers into the beginning of a DVD before I reach the menu?

It probably depends on the software you’re using. I used to use some software (can’t remember which anymore) that had that as an option…and it wasn’t really hidden away somewhere on a sub menu…it was a very prominent feature. But I haven’t burned a DVD in years…

Do you still have that software?

OT Edits to Fit the PT (A Resource Thread, Hopefully)

Saying it’s a Jedi’s weapon doesn’t mean he’s saying it’s exclusive to the Jedi.

I don’t understand this… we aren’t supposed to believe a “Jedi weapon” is a “Jedi weapon”? So what does it mean then? Was the Emperor supposed to say, “this is a Jedi weapon and no other group of people can use it ever, for any purpose” for the intent of his statement to be clear?

Why would he not just call the lightsaber a lightsaber, or not discuss it at all?

I think the use and discussion of lightsabers throughout the films make it abundantly clear what the intent is.

The Last Jedi: Legendary (SPOILERS)

The joke also holds meaning, thematically. Luke tells Rey that the legacy of the Jedi is failure. Despite this rather cynical assessment, it is heavily implied in RotS and especially The Clone Wars that the Jedi fell because they lost their way. The Jedi texts symbolize that failure because part of the problem was that the Jedi had become too rigid and dogmatic in their thinking; they had lost touch with the Force and were relying on tradition instead. They were essentially blind, which is why Palpatine was able to scheme behind their backs.

Luke’s instinct is to destroy the texts, and Yoda confirms that this instinct is correct. The texts were dry and boring and what really matters is the Force itself, because it alone will guide you. Rey needs to look forward, not backward, if she is to succeed. It is a powerful lesson and NOT MCU-style humor at all.

On a similar note, Luke tossing the lightsaber over his shoulder basically represents the same theme. Luke is done with the Jedi Order. Tossing the lightsaber was intended to startle the viewer and make a strong impression, not make them laugh. The viewer is left flabbergasted, simply asking why he would do such a thing. But again, this is merely a continuation of themes brought forth in RotS, which I predict will extend into TRoS.

Then why does the music stop right just before he tosses the saber?

Rewriting the OT-What would you do?

Here’s some changes I’d do to the original trilogy:

  • Han shoots first. 'Nuff said.
  • Replace the Ewoks and Endor with the Wookiees and their homeworld.
  • Remove the incestuous kiss in The Empire Strikes Back, which makes the whole “Luke and Leia being siblings” thing a whole lot better and less “WTF?!”
  • Split the rescuing Han and the Death Star II storylines into two films
  • Ackbar does not say “It’s a trap!”, because that line is so cringe-worthy!
  • Some of the Empire escapes at the end of Return of the Jedi, setting up the sequel trilogy films

Stumbled over this video-

As much as the movie looks outdated in comparsion to the newer films… this video would stick out like a sore thumb in comparsion to the rest of the film. It’s great as a standalone project made for fun, but not if you put it into the film itself. Of course, you’d have to change every frame to look like a 2010s film if you want this video in. That’s why people don’t include the Obi-Wan vs. Vader remake in their edits.

  • Leave Temuera Morrison as the voice of Boba Fett, but maybe tweak the tone or speed to make him sound more like the older, menacing Fett voice.
  • Also have someone speaking out loud Fett’s name in Ep V.
  • Make Obi-Wan call Darth Vader “Anakin” or “Vader” instead of “Darth”.
  • Trim Leia addressing Obi-Wan as Ben.
  • Add at least one reference to Vader and/or the Emperor being a Sith (for example, in the Ep V opening crawl, introduce Vader as a “Sith Lord” instead of “evil lord”.
  • Address the Emperor as “Palpatine” in at least one line (it could be during the Rebel briefing scene in Ep VI: “…we’ve learned that Emperor Palpatine himself”).
  • In Ep VI, alter Luke’s line, from “I can turn him back to the good side” to I can save him. I can turn him back to the Light side".
  • Maybe one reference to the balance of the Force?
  • Maybe a throwaway line confirming Bail Organa’s death?
  • Add movement and Aurebesh texts to the screens of the Rebel bases and Imperial systems.

Also there might be some ways to further bridge Rogue One and the OT.

  • Re-scripted lines for Vader at the start referring to the events at Scarif.
  • Add Scarif in the background for the early scenes with the Death Star in space.
  • Add U-Wings and Hammerhead Corvettes to the Battle of Endor.

What about the sequel trilogy films?

A New Hope Repossessed

Thanks! I know what Adywan‘a was like and am interested to see another.

Here is the new Alderaan explosion:

Considering the concentration of planets where Alderaan is located (at least 6-7 planets in close proximity), this solution really makes sense to me. I like the idea of seeing it from a distance… very similar to the treatment in TFA with the destruction of the Republic.

The explosion is still outdated.
