The sounds are entirely unfinished, as I haven’t really isolated the dialogue or completed the saber sound effects. This is a proof of concept more than anything.

I like it. The only problem of course is that they constantly change location from one shot to another.
I think we should put other scenes between different parts of the duel. If we don’t want Yoda going to Palpy, though, it’s really complicated, because apart from Yoda meditating we don’t have other scenes that could happen during the duel on Mustafar.
I like the music and the sound effects.

PS: Or we could… I don’t know, maybe add some dissolve effect between different parts of the duel. If done well, it could show the passing of time.

Someone asked about cutting down some Mustafar stuff.
I tried this, to remove the over the top fight parts from Obi Wan and Anakin’s duel. Just some different cut and a music track in the end. It doesn’t feel like SW, but I like it.
Of course it’s just a rough edit…

It feels like SW and it is fantastic!! My only gripe is that the music covers the voices at the tail end of the Anakin duel.

I don’t mind the music that much, although it’s very not Star Wars, as others have pointed out. It’s better than the original fight IMO, but I was hoping there was a way to do it without reinserting the Yoda v Sidious fight.

It’s probably not possible to do it that way, though.

I didn’t understand what you meant about cutting the whole Yoda/Palpy duel.
Maybe we could entirely cut that by showing Yoda on the asteroid meditating. With some montage it could look like he is mentally watching Obi wan and Anakin’s duel.
Even tough we would have to find other scenes to insert between the different moments of the duel on Mustafar…
What about stopping when Palpatine shocks Yoda? It would make Yoda look weaker, but we could cut out the whole fight… and we would find Yoda later, finding out that he managed to escape…

The Fallen Temple Vol 1: Dixon's Cut of Attack of the Clones (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Time

New text is intriguing.
I just remembered some facts: the man who dubbed Palpatine is the same of Gollum and professor Snape.
He is amazing. One of the best alive we have.
And Anakin’s dubber is the “official” italian voice of Di Caprio (almost every movie), Jesse Pinkman, Sherlock Holmes, Ramsay Bolton.
Obi Wan’s voice also dubbed Cumberbatch (just like Anakin’s dubber) in Dr.Strange, and most of Matt Damon’s movies.
3PO’s voice is the voice of Seth McFarlane in both movies and Family Guy.
Last but not least, a pretty minor voice like Kid-Adi-Mundi is one of the best classic voices we had. He is the voice of: Gandalf, Dumbledore, Zeus in Hercules, many Michael Gambon and Christopher Plummer and Max Von Sydow’s movies. A really charming voice.

Ok, I will stop now 😄

Yeah, of course it’s rough, I didn’t spend too much time on it 😉

Yeah, cause Italian, even if it’s the most direct evolution of Latin (I studied this one for 6 years), is the modernization of ancient Florentine/Tuscan dialect. Every region of Italy developed its own vulgar version of Latin. So of course many many names and words change a little bit.
Res Publica (literally, “public thing”) becomes Repubblica or Republic.
Imperium (not a form of state, but a specific kind of power) becomes Impero or Empire.
I digress too.

But I’m looking forward to this edit 😉

Good work. Yes it’s a bit strange if you understand Italian, even if only a bit.
But the voice acting here is so much better !

I wonder if there was some way to re-dub the movie in english, specially Anakin.
Perhaps some fan with acting skills and a similar voice could do it.

Anyway, for me AOTC only works if you focus it on Padmé.
Reduce the Coruscant scenes to a minimum and go with the trip to Naboo + Naboo scenes.
Anakin should not be the hero here.

What do you have in mind about this ?

Yeah, I can assure you for italians this is odd, strange.
(PS: I don’t know other dubbing systems, but the italian one is considered one of the best in general)

KILL SHEEV - A Tarantino-ish Original Trilogy Edit
Time

Hi everyone.
This post is just for ideas.
As title says, I’d like to try an edit based on Tarantino’s movie “Kill Bill”.

First of all, I want to ask you if you happen to have some musicless audio files from any OT movie scene. To add, for example, Morricone’s background soundtrack it would be better not to have the original track.
So… does anyone have some audio tracks with effects and voices but no music? I don’t even know if it’s possible to have somee of them, that’s why I ask.

Anyway…
just like Kill Bill it would be divided into two Volumes.

BEGINNING.

  1. Opening titles.
  2. I am your father revelation scene in black and white. Similar to Pulp Empire, but with no music and different cuts.
  3. Titles like in Kill Bill.

CHAPTERS.

  1. Fight on Tatooine: the Sarlacc’s battle. Just to show a fight, just like Kill Bill’s first scene. We see Jabba (presented with Pulp Ficion-like text), and the scene looks like a common adventure for the group.

  2. The shocked young boy: we return to the revelation in Empire, and moving on until the end of the movie.

  3. The Origin of Darth Vader: considering that in previous chapter we saw Vader, and we already know he is Anakin, here we see his past. I think I’ll use parts from the prequels and the tv shows Clone Wars and Rebels. Just like in the original O-Ren scene, which was all animated.

  4. The man from Tatooine: introduce Obi Wan.

  5. Showdown in the Death Star: show Leia’s liberation and Ben/Vader duel. I’d like to keep ONE single Death Star in the edit, but I don’t know if it is plausible with some montage edit.

END OF VOLUME 1: I’d like to place here the Vader/Palpatine dialogue in Empire, and to end it like Bill’e revelation that Beatrix’ daughter is still alive.

  1. Disaster at Cloud City: show all Cloud City scenes until the duel.

  2. The lonely carbonite of Han Solo: beginning of Return of the Jedi. Maybe until Luke is thrown in the Rancor’s cell.

  3. The wise tutelage of Master Yoda: just like in Pulp Empire, I want to use Pai Mei’s voice for Yoda, and then show how Luke beats the Rancor.

  4. Leia and I: Yoda Dies, Luke talks to Ben, rebel briefing, Luke and Leia speaking on Endor.

Last chapter: Face to Face: final fight and space battle.

I’m in a really early stage, and maybe I’ll realize I don’t have the ability to make this.
But I’d like to get a response or some suggestions.
Of course I think about adding Tarantino’s musics here and there (the music from bride/O-Ren duel for Ben vs Vader, Morricones “L’Arena” music during the training with Yoda, the other Morricone’s music when Bill dies to use for Palpatine’s death, etc.).

How to make Episode 3 work as a standalone prequel?
Time

I don’t want to teach anything to anyone, but if you find something interesting here, feel free to use it.
https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/THE-CHOSEN-ONE-A-STAR-WARS-STORY-RELEASED/id/60721
I treated it not like a saga-movie but like a spinoff, using different text.

-Introduce Dooku: I don’t think you need this. He is the bad guy, you can explain it with Palpy at the beginning of III, when he says “He is a sith lord”.

-Explain the Clone Wars: some flashbacks, or text.

-Introduce Padme: yeah, this is needed.

Of course you have to decide wether to use mostly ROTS, or if you want to show different parts of the prequels and place time-jumps during the movie…

THE CHOSEN ONE: A STAR WARS STORY (RELEASED!!!)

I feel a little bad for criticizing this, because it’s better than any work I’ve ever put out, but you asked for comments so here’s some stuff I noticed:

I personally and subjectively just don’t like the music used in the opening text, and I really don’t like the idea of force sensitivity, but those really feel like me things, so I don’t hold it against you or the fanedit in any way.

I really do like the way setting cards were used, adding the year was a good idea. Although it’s not obvious to everyone what BBY means. It limits accessibility a little bit.

Really like the way you cut out the podrace. Starting the movie where you did was effective. Additionally, cutting right from the Phantom Menace to Revenge of the Sith is also something that works pretty well.

The color correction in the Battle of Coruscant looks great. Love it! The lightsabers look a little washed out in the hangar scenes though. Color correction elsewhere also looks great. Especially in the scene where Anakin confronts Padme.

The dream effect doesn’t work so well in that one shot where Padme, Anakin, Owen and Beru are all in shot, because Padme and Beru are still visible, but awkwardly cut off. It’s like in a Pan and Scan if two characters were right next to each other in the original or in previous shots, but one was just off screen. Feels weird. There are a few more shots like this, but that’s the first thing I saw. Additionally, there being two different dream effects is a little weird, maybe (if you plan on making a second version) recreate the second dream using your effect? I’m pretty sure it’s possible using footage from later in the movie.

The last scene with Vader is a little tonally weird. Definitely less cringey than the original, and more accurate to Vader’s character, but it doesn’t fit very well in the otherwise kinda chill ending.

I love the voiceover in the last scene. It’s not the first time I’ve seen something like this in a prequel fanedit, but I fall for it every time.


I normally don’t think that you can make good prequel fanedits without straying far away from the Star Wars formula. This doesn’t really disprove that, because it does stray away from it, but it was surprisingly good and could act as a good replacement for Revenge of the Sith.

Thank you so much!!!
I don’t think I’ll make another version of this, but if I will, I’ll be sure to take note of your suggestions.
About the Tatooine dream scene I agree with you. I rewatched it some days ago and I don’t really like how it came out…
