Worst Edit Ideas
Time

When Luke introduces himself to the droids in ANH, he should call himself Luke Lars.

When Obi-Wan tells Luke about his father, he should spell out his father’s name was Anakin Skywalker and thus his name is actually Luke Skywalker.

Ok but how is that terrible? It’d help explain why he was never a target for the Empire or Darth Vader. Is this just a thread for “Edit ideas that acknowledge the prequels” (even though this wouldn’t even be exclusively dealing with the prequels)?

I still hate it and would rank it as the worst scene in the series. It represents everything wrong with Star Wars fans, how all they want is just mindless scenes of “cool characters” using lightsabers for violence.

I like my Vader far more subdued, not this videogame nonsense.

Yeah, because you know, Vader “helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi knights” and was the Emperor’s main enforcer by just sitting around. Those 19 years he was the Emperor’s dragon? He just kinda sat around and chatted with Imperial officers. He didn’t kill any Rebel soldiers to ensure the Empire stayed in power, he just stood around man, come on. His lightsaber? Just for show. He was just winging it when he fought Luke for the first time and was just magically a master swordsman, he didn’t have ANY experience with it from past battles. And that armor is all for nothing. He just sat around and let the stormtroopers do the work.

I guess Luke killing all of Jabba’s minions is also “videogame nonsense”. It’s such a mindless scene of a cool character using a lightsaber for violence. Because, you know, LIGHTSABERS DEFNITELY AREN’T MADE FOR VIOLENCE. And SITH LORDS, who are EVIL, definitely wouldn’t be using these WEAPONS for violence. I mean, come on, the Sith are actually GOOD GUYS, they’d never be VIOLENT, right?! They’d NEVER kill people, COME ON!?

Actually, you know what? No action scenes are allowed in Star Wars. The trench run? Videogame nonsense. I mean, come on, all Star Wars fans want to see is ships battling and getting blown up, right! All they want is mindless scenes of people murdering each other in spaceships! No lightsaber duels either, that’s all videogame nonsense. Or shootouts either, that’s videogame nonsense too. I mean, I’m watching Star Wars, not playing Call of Duty or HALO!

This has to be one of the most moronic comments I’ve ever seen on this site. You’re not cool and intelligent for hating action. You’re just pretentious and aggravating. It wasn’t “mindless” either, Vader was trying to get the plans from the Rebels. There was a plot reason, you just glossed over it. You’re whining because they showed Vader as he was always meant to be in his backstory that has always existed but because they didn’t really have the budget to do scenes like that when the originals were made so you think all he should do is just sit around and chat, even though that’s not even all he did in the OT! And I really don’t give a shit to hear about it. I think I’d rather go to church then hear your bitching about how Darth Vader should just be a lazy brute who just sits around, and I’m an athiest. I think I’d rather listen to a knife scraping across a glass bottle for an hour. I’d rather listen to a baby scream their head off through an entire plane ride to the other side of the world, not even being able to sleep because of its constant crying.

Maybe I’m confusing it with mood, but Vader’s presence in ANH is something that’s more ominous. He’s often not the focus of the shot, and it creates this really great eerie effect; like how Leia backs up into him when Alderaan’s about to be destroyed. Vader inspires dread throughout ANH, but his hallway scene is all about terror. And that’s fine, that’s great, but explosive Vader shouldn’t be his opening. It should come at the end during his duel with Obi-Wan so that it feels like a major payoff to the hints that they both possess incredible power.

I guess I can see where you’re coming from. But I mean, Vader shows his power in the beginning when he literally lifts a man up with one hand, so its not like they were holding out until the end.

I just hate the hallway scene. The fandom ruined it for me. If it would be feasible to cut it and not lose any plot, I would leap at the opportunity.

I adore it. One of my favorite Star Wars scenes now.

Episode III: The Eyepainter Fanedit (Released)(Trailer online)

That line was referencing a deleted scene in which Obi-Wan talked to Padme about his worries about Anakin (which would’ve actually been a great scene from what I read in the script had it been left in; the dialogue is actually fantastic, you can read it on Internet Movie Script Database), not Obi-Wan and Padme having an affair.

In the novel that delves into what Palpatine made Anakin think what was going on, it wasn’t an affair either: he was trying to convince him that the Delegation of 2000 and the Jedi were teaming up to overthrow the Republic.

Star Wars - Episode IV: The Heir of Skywalker (V2 Released)
Time

I highly enjoyed this edit. The color grading was fantastic, I love that the blaster bolts were updated to match the prequels, and the lightsabers were also vastly improved. A lot of the other new visuals, too, were great (especially the new atmospheres and suns to the planets; the old atmospheres look absolutely terrible on the Blu-Rays and really bug me, they legit just look like big blue lines). I loved the new destruction of Alderaan and every cut/rearrangement worked for me. A lot of the new music was great, as I love prequel music. One part I especially love is the choice for both scenes with Vader when the Millennium Falcon arrives on the Death Star and the scene with Vader telling Tarkin he senses Obi-Wan, it gives this great feeling of mystery and made it much more ominous while also making them feel like more powerful and significant moments. The choice for the Millennium Falcon’s arrival is actually quite brilliant, as it’s from the part in Attack of the Clones on Tatooine (which relates to the fact that they talk about Mos Eisley) while also having the Imperial March in it which works because Vader is in the scene, and it’s music from the last time Vader was on Tatooine. The Imperial March being added for Vader’s entrance and the ending of the scene on the Tantative is also excellent. I quite enjoyed the music added to R2 being captured by the Jawas, and I never knew how well Jar Jar’s theme works with the scene with the droids when they first arrive on Tatooine until now.

However, there were times in which I either found the music choice odd (like the conference scene; I think the first track felt out of place and too loud and the second theme I feel like should be designated for the Separatists; I would’ve chosen “Palpatine’s Teachings” like Adywan did, I think the really eerie part of that piece works incredibly well with the part when Vader chokes Motti) or felt like it was overbearing (the “set your course to Alderaan” scene; music was too loud and I don’t feel like it fit). There were also a couple weird audio moments (the music can be heard when Luke says that Anakin was “just a navigator…”, and some of the audio transitions during the trimmed Mos Eisley entrance were jarring, though the visual cuts were great), and while I love the idea of having the guy who tells Tarkin that the rebel base isn’t on Dantooine being a hologram, you can still hear the door opening and Vader is clearly looking at where the guy’s supposed to be. Hologram looks great though.

Still, this is probably my favorite version of ANH released thus far. It’s a great modernization and feels much more at home with Rogue One and the prequels for me.

Idea: OT Edits to Fit the PT and/or the Larger Saga (A Resource Thread, Hopefully)
Time

That was when he lost me. The fact that the people he was afraid of losing were both women is a coincidence. He was born without a father and Padme is his wife so of course he’s afraid of losing her. He was also concerned for his children too, which he did not know for sure was male or female. It’s not that they’re women, it’s how attached he was to them.

It’s as if he completely forgets about Palpatine, who was just as responsible for Anakin’s fall. Just like how he forgot that Leia wasn’t the only one of Luke’s friends he was concerned about.

His whole channel is overanalyzing things in the search for misogyny where none exists.

But starting Jedi training young has important narrative function. They do that so the younglings don’t have a chance to form attachments to their parents (or anybody else) and be taught from the start to not be attached. The reason why they said Anakin was too old to be trained was because he was attached to his mother.
