Return of the Jedi (My saga edit)
Time

Spoilers are below for content from The Mandalorian - in regards to the 5th episode…

After watching episode 5 of The Mandalorian, and the whole Tatooine stuff… I kinda liked how the desert looked way less saturated than the OT Tatooine.
In my Episode IV edit I probably oversaturated some shots… now I’d like to try the opposite.

Thank you for suggestions.
About DSII… I don’t know how to do it, lol. I’ll try.
About the shuttle… at first I kept it. But in the scene with the Emperor we dont see the shuttle actually “landing” in the hangar. It’s already there. You know… if I keep those shots, it cuts directly from the shuttle still in space, approaching the DS, to the shuttle already inside.

I liked the twin suns… I think it added more weight to those flat shots. But yeah… the lights don’t match.

EDIT: I re-added the shuttle approaching. The shot of the officer saying “Inform the commander that…” fixes the problem. And I moved the twin suns in the shots where you can see the upper sky.

You mean before the whole Tatooine scenes?
I kinda like how his character looks more menacing the FIRST time he appears in the movie (mirroring the entrance in the palace to Vader’s first appearance in ANH, the Force Choke, etc). I just have a doubt about placing the Dagobah scene first because it establishes that Luke is a Jedi (yes, yes, “not yet”, but he is clearly in the light side), while keeping the Tatooine stuff first makes the audience wonder about wether he still is a Jedi or he fell to the dark side…
But I’ll surely try, to look how it works. May I ask what you mean with “more consistent”?

Return of the Jedi (My saga edit)
Time

I just started working on my Episode VI edit, following Episode I (Shadow of the past), Episode II (Keepers of the peace), Episode III (Rise of the Dark Side, unfinished), Episode IV (The son of Skywalker) and the Episode V I still haven’t started working on.
The main point here is that I don’t have to hide the plot twists anymore.

For now I’ve changed the order of some scenes.
IMHO Return of the Jedi is by far the weakest movie in the OT… and personally I enjoy ROTS more than this one.
The first act is way too long and repetitive.
Stay with me: the droids arrive at the palace - Jabba says something - the droids get captured.
Leia and Chewie arrive at the palace - Jabba says something - Chewie gets captured.
Luke arrives at the palace - Jabba says something - Luke falls into the trap.

So I’m trying to have the order of scenes suggested in the Radical Changes thread.

  1. Palpatine arrives in the Death Star.
  2. 3PO and R2 arrive at the palace and get captured.
  3. Leia frees Han.
  4. Luke arrives (+ battle at Sarlacc)
  5. Palpatine talks to Vader.
  6. Luke on Dagobah.

About the rest of the movie, I will make the same changes I tried on previous edits, so Color Corrections, new music tracks, etc.
I’ll try to totally remove Boba Fett, or make him leave the palace before the Sarlacc scene. Anyway, he does not die in the desert.

  1. Modern intro, with Disney era Lucasfilm logo.
  2. New crawl.
  3. Movie starts with Palpatine’s arrival in the DSII.
  4. New Tatooine sky.
  5. New Jabba’s palace exterior.
  6. Color corrected interior.
  7. Enhanced Luke’s hologram.
  8. Band plays some music here.
  9. No tentacle-thing grabbing 3PO.
  10. No 3PO waving like the droid behind him.
  11. Digitally removed Boba Fett. He does not die in the movie. He is not even on Tatooine. Makes him cooler… the only guy who managed to make the heroes fail.
  12. Totally removed song and dance. I always hated both versions. Plus, it makes the Rancor trap more a surprise.
  13. No Leia and Chewie arrival. At the beginning we HEAR 3PO saying that Lando and Chewie “never returned”. They are already there. Lando in disguise and Chewie prisoner. We see in a previous shot Leia-bounty hunter, and stop.
  14. Enhanced colors during the Leia-freeing-Han scene.
  15. Color corrected Tatooine desert.
  16. Added twin suns when possible.

To be completed…

Considering that in a previous ROTS edit of mine I tried to add rain in the background of the Obi Wan/Padmé scene (and failed), I like how it looks.
The lightsabers actually look somewhat similar to Anakin’s lightsaber in the sequel trilogy, so IMO they look really cool.

The one where he tells her about Anakin? If so that would be a interesting look. Im curious to see that. And i was trying to get the look and color from Empire and Force awakens. I haven’t added flicker to the sabers yet tho. Still so much to do

Yep, that’s the scene. But it looked soooo bad. I love that scene, I think the acting is quite good, the score is a wonderul crescendo, etc. But despite the emotional weight, it’s set during a sunny day. It kinda breaks the pathos.
In my previous edits I just changed the colors to make it look like it’s set during evening/night, but that’s all.

Dooku looks rough… But I can dig the concept, good effort so far 👍

Personally, I don’t think Dooku looks that bad. It still needs some work, but the lighting behind him helps…

To be fair it’s obvious that his face was inserted onto a random Jedi

I don’t know… I notice it because I KNOW it is edited. Otherwise I don’t think I’d notice it too much. He appears just in a couple of scenes (maybe just one), and I’m already used to odd faces because of CG Yoda.
Personally, I would already find it acceptable the way it is now.
