Have you or are you going to do eps 1 & 2,I think ep 2 has some great character moments with padme, I’ve tried to do extended versions of prequels before myself but for some reason the deleted scenes judder and look out of place so I’ve given up 😂

Honestly I’d be super interested in this as well so long as the Kenobi flashback was included. I wonder how long the movie would be at that point. Nearing 3 hours surely.

Making the Obi-Wan & Anakin training session (From the Kenobi series) work in an AOTC edit.

Remembered this thread and decided to have a go at adding fitting score to the scene (taken mostly from Episode II).

The sound effects are unfinished, the biggest thing I need to do (other than stabilizing some of the handheld shots) is extend the final shot so that a wipe can work. I’m mostly happy with how the music sounds, but some of the transitions could use some tweaking I think. Plus Anakin’s theme at the beginning could be replaced with more ‘scene transition-y’ music.

Honestly something like this is all Episode 2 needs to sell Anakin and Obi-Wan’s relationship. Heck, I think including this enables the use of him complaining to Padme in her apartment and maybe even his mental breakdown after the Tuskens. “He’s holding me back!” and all that.

I hope so too.

I think we’re both referring to, “And General, unless that shield is destroyed…nobody can save us.”

Maybe another off screen rebel could be calling for 3PO, needing his help. Or some droid beeps. It could just be a subtle background voice/sound, but something like that could provide some logic to his action.

Ask and ye shall receive.

It’s funny, but also kinda brings the scene together.

I’ve noticed that Leia’s Lego lines are pitched way higher than she actually speaks in the film. I’d recommend adjusting that a bit to blend in better.

Sure, but like, all I’m saying is that realistically speaking there would be nothing but some weathered bricks laying around by the time Luke shows up there. Not nearly enough to make the numerous structures we see (and mind you he’d have to do it all by hand without the Force due to his cutting off).

Place probably hasn’t been inhabited for countless generations.

Asking for a friend who is keen about Star Wars details.
"For ROTJ:R, could you please change the throne room layout to how it looks in TROS?
Most importantly, the wall with the door that leads to the wayfinder


Otherwise, it’s good to see this project is still going strong!
Thanks very much!

Based on those pics, I don’t think changing the throne room layout to how it appears in TROS is really necessary. It’s really the fault of the filmmakers for not having it match to how it was depicted in ROTJ.

They DID match it. I saw the documentary. I looked closer at one of the photos, and the secret door is meant to be underneath the stairs. The upper floor with the throne collapsed at some point. The only thing that would need to be changed is this:

This seems like a nice compromise.

I don’t think Hal has any plans to add it lol

The only reason I’m interested in doing so is that in the original movie Luke’s criticisms of the Jedi are way too shallow. “This one specific Jedi trained and created Darth Vader”. Sure, whatever. I find it much more interesting to look at the idea of inaction vs. becoming too involved (the Clone Wars). And basically the idea that the right way to do things might be somewhere in the middle, and without the Jedi themselves involved.

I agree that the bathos in the scene is quite jarring in a film already full of it, but it’s something I may be willing to overlook.

I’m actually trying to edit the two deleted caretaker scenes into this edit, Muffy. An additional benefit is that Luke’s changed line is reverted back to v4. Just trying to make the audio pops go away currently.

EDIT: Also, I realize Snoke’s line about destroying the whole island is missing in this edit with the idea of the caretakers not existing, but honestly I think that scene works better without that particular line to begin with. It just feels kinda clunky.

I’m really not a fan of the change to Luke’s line but oh well, let the past die, slaughter it if you have to.

Kinda have to agree. I can still hear the w sound after “He’d vanished” so it sounds kinda wonky.

Plus, I kinda liked what the comics did to explain this. From Luke’s devastated perspective he might think those students joined up with him, but in reality they were just trying to avenge Luke.

Ah well, it’s fine.

Hey Hal, thanks for bolding Luke Skywalker in the crawl! Didn’t know you actually went through with that idea because of the “Jedi Master” title coming before it.

It’s worth mentioning that the leaked Duel of the Fates crawl actually did a similar thing, with only “KYLO REN” being bolded in “Supreme Leader KYLO REN”. So it definitely has precedence, even though that isn’t really a canon source.
