This is unique as far as I’ve seen.
Wow, something unique among all the prequel reedits out there! I guess that by itself’s an accomplishment, so thanks!
The only real issue I see is that Anakin’s lightsaber went over the lava fall with him.
Yeah, good catch - shoulda caught that myself.
I personally have an issue with the fact that they would have died from being that close to lava period. Ridiculous decision by Lucas, imho.
Great point. In scenes like that - in the context of a Star Wars film - I just chalk it up to them using the Force to do what others couldn’t.
I also think Lucas made a mistake - especially since at that time no further SW movies were expected - not having Vader as Vader in the suit for the third act of the film. Anakin should have been Luke’s age in Episode I, and his downfall better developed from Ep1 through the second act of Ep3. In that second act Anakin could have sustained serious injury (not from dueling Obi-Wan) requiring the Vader suit, and then in the suit he does all the stuff we saw him do in the third act of Ep3.
A related issue is that Anakin’s turn to the dark side is way too quick. He basically goes from arrogant whiner to child-killer overnight - and mainly because of fears for his wife’s survival??? So one of the changes I’ve made in my mashup is to portray Anakin as a bad seed right from the start: he doesn’t generally make jokes, he doesn’t whine, and he doesn’t generally have “fun” (Ep3: “Here’s where the fun begins”). He mostly broods (e.g., in my version he doesn’t whine about not being deemed a master; he just gives Windu a staredown). Therefore when he goes full-dark it’s not as much of a contrast to what he already was.
