ANAKIN’S DREAM SCENE.

I’d really like to get a feedback on this.

As you can see, like in the previous edit, I cut out the first part of the balcony scene.
No Anakin and Padme telling how much they love each other and how blind they are.

We cut to the dream.
And I want the two dreams to have a purpose.

  1. Show Shmi’s death. We see her during the edit’s prologue, so we have to know what happened to her. Plus, it reminds us that Anakin already failed to save a person he loved. He does not want to be weak again.
  2. Show Qui Gonn’s death. Considering that we don’t see Obi Wan, this could have happened even a year before ROTS. So we can still believe that Qui Gonn has been Anakin’s master, at least for a time.
  3. Now here’s how I made it. The music is taken from the famous Clone Wars episode where Anakin sees the future, he sees that he will become Vader. I think the audio works quite fine. It gives that chaotic feel… Then I placed some cloudy effect, I zoomed and rotated the scenes a bit and placed a light effect to make it all more “dreamy”. But I kept Padme the same, different from other parts of the dream, because I want to imply that this is a fake, this is not a memory, it is something that Palpatine puts into Anakin’s mind.

SHORT CLIP COMPARISON.

In this clip you can see:

  1. R2 does no longer fly, just to fix continuity.
  2. Full color correction and comparison. I like it to be darker than the original.

Again, it is a short clip, but it gives an idea about how the edit will look like (similar to Chronological ROTS, actually). More grey, more black colors, and Obi Wan looks a little bit older (look at his hair).

PS: During the first Anakin dream scene I think I will add Shmi and Qui Gonn’s deaths, to show that he thinks he was too weak to save them and now he wants to become stronger to save Padme.
And I think I will remove Anakin calling Obi Wan “master”. It is implied they have that kind of relationship, but I think Anakin calling him Obi Wan feels more like a friendly relationship.

INTRO CLIP TEST.

I would like to start the edit like this.
It looks like Rogue One beginning. And I believe in these short parts, acting wasn’t that bad.

I think it also works to show all main plot points:

  1. Anakin was found by Qui Gon to be trained as a Jedi.
  2. Anakin is special, even though we don’t hear any midichlorian things.
  3. The real threat is the Sith presence.

Don’t mind the volume or audio problems, nor the different size of the title starry background. It will be fixed.

I just finished the Chronological Revenge of the Sith, so I’m not even starting this, but I’d like to get some ideas or suggetions.
I’d like to make a PT single movie and to give it a spinoff feel…
You know, start the movie like Rogue One, some color correction, some new music, etc.

But now I’m guessing about some things.

  1. Make it chronological.
    I’m wondering about keeping the revelation of Anakin/DV in Episode V or keeping it in Episode III. In other words, I’m thinking about showing Anakin becoming DV or not.

  2. As I said during the other edit’s making, it is difficult to completely mantain the plot twist until Empire, but if I work on the three movies I think something could be done.

  3. Example: remove any mention of Darth Vader. And this is pretty obvious. But since in Episode IV Ben and Vader have a clear Master/Apprentice relationship, a fix could be not to make Anakin Obi Wan’s apprentice. Anakin would only be Kenobi’s friend, with Qui Gon being the master of Obi Wan at first and Anakin later (so no Darth Maul duel scene). Considering that many things have to be cut, I think any mention of Anakin being Obi Wan’s apprentice can be cut out aswell.

  4. The movie could start with Qui Gon and Kenobi going to Tatooine and “recruit” Anakin. Very simple, very fast (maybe even remove Padme, but I don’t know if it can be done), and it would work as a prologue just before the main title. Yes, like in Rogue One. When Qui Gon presents Anakin and Obi Wan we get the title, and then to some scenes of Episode II.
    Maybe show only some things, like Anakin falling in love with Padme and the militarization of the Republic… and then cut to Episode III. Or maybe showing Episode II’s flashbacks in Episode III’s Anakin dream scenes.

Again, I’m just starting to think about what can be done, and any suggestions are welcomed.

I think that another way to make a chronological movie that could fix continuity… would be to make Anakin NOT Obi Wan’s apprentice, but simply his friend.
That’s just an idea, but MAYBE it could be done in the next fanedit that will mashup all three prequel movies.
Of course I would need to remove any mention to Obi Wan being Anakin’s master and show them as equals.

It would fix Obi Wan’s words to Luke in Ep IV, so that we know that Kenobi is lying (cause HE killed Anakin), but we really think Anakin is dead, because when Obi Wan says that Vader was his pupil, we think that Anakin was just his friend.

I finished it and rendered it. Something like 9 hours O.O

Just some things:

  1. Eventually I didn’t put any voiceover. I tried and tried with volumes, but it just sounded too different from real Palpatine’s voice.

  2. In the end, I didn’t put the Tantive IV opening shot before Yoda, Bail and Obi talk about Luke.

  3. In the credits I put a simple credit about the edit… but it looks bad because of the background text. You’ll understand it when you see it. It is a really minor error, I surely won’t repeat the rendering for that.

  4. Now I have to choose where to upload it. It is an over 8gb MP4 file, so any suggestions are welcomed.

  5. I think it came out the way I wanted. It doesn’t fix everything, but at least it makes way less obvious that DV is Anakin. I’m satisfied with the color correction and with the cuts. The deleted scenes look a little less detailed, but I think they are acceptable.

I don’t know if I will upload it tomorrow or in the following days, but as soon as it is online you’ll know it.
I want to say a really huge “Grazie” to everyone who commented and suggested things.
If I’m inspired I think I will start working on the PT mashup… maybe called “Chosen One - A Star Wars story”.

FIRST DELETED SCENE.

Just to show you the music I added from Rogue One.
IMHO they fit pretty well, both the positioning of the deleted scene (showing the Anakin/Padme scene just after the deleted one shows that Padme completely trusts Anakin) and the music that sends you signs about the birth of the Rebellion.

PS: In these days I thought about some things. One was a further edit, but I think it is impossible to do.
I was wondering is it is possible to place the entire Order 66 AFTER Anakin’s “death”.
Anakin is sent to Mustafar, the Empire is born, Kenobi and Yoda go to the Temple and discover the truth and the two duels happen. But during all of this the Clone Wars continue, and after the Darth Vader scene we see all the Order 66.
Some new scenes would be needed, some new dialogue (to explain why Kenobi goes away from Utapau before the battle is over, for example), but of course it would greatly improve continuity. I don’t think it is plausible, and surely now I wouldn’t have the time to do it, but I think it would be a cool edit idea.

The other thing was to make a new prequel mashup, but to try making it in a more Rogueoneish way. A real spinoff, so that we wouldn’t need to hide any plot points. The main story is the Original Trilogy, and the Prequels just become a spinoff like Rogue One or Solo.
We could put an intro like in RO, then use Revenge of the Sith as a base, and then put flashbacks during Anakin’s dreams.

You can count on my voices and encouragement if you decide to do either of the two. 😃.

I thought so, ahahaha! Thank you 😉

I just added the music from Rogue One when Jyn is brought to Yavin (the Rebel Alliance short theme) and I put it at the beginning of the first deleted scene (Bail, Mon, Padme and others talking about how to oppose Palpatine by creating what will evetually become the real Rebel Alliance).

I’m thinking that I could make a trailer, considering that this is what I do on my YT channel.

BIRTH OF THE EMPIRE CLIP.

I think this will be one of the last clip I’ll post before the release.

  1. As usual… color correction, especially during the Senate scenes.
  2. On Mustafar, Gunray does not call Anakin “Vader”. He simply says that they were expecting him.
  3. No Obi Wan and Yoda entering the main hall of the Temple and wondering who might have killed the younglings.
  4. Obi Wan does not see Anakin killing Jedi in the recordings. He simply sees Anakin kneeling before Palpatine. Different montage to remove Palpatine calling him “Lord Vader”.
  5. No “Consumed by Darth Vader”.

ANAKIN’S TURN.

So, here’s a new clip.

You can see the usual color correction. Apart from red colors, everything else is darkened and desaturated.
Removed Anakin’s mention of Padme.
Removed mention of Darth Vader. Anakin thanks Palpy cause he said to him that the Force was strong with him.
Re-edited montage so that Palpy only sends Anakin to Mustafar and not to the Temple.
After the scene we cut tu Utapau and Order 66.

Never mind.

Never mind what? 😄

I just remembered that Rebels season 2’s ending clearly says that Vader is Anakin, so to watch everything in chronological order, that should be edited too.
It is impossible to fix everything by just working on Episode III. We should at the very least work on Episode IV and Rebels too.

Anyway… another Color Correction here.
This is the “bubble theatre” panoramic view.
