I do t think there is, but perhaps a mod can merge these threads.
Your project looks fresh, by the way. 😃

Ha, thanks! I appreciate it. It’s more of a conceptual idea, not quite in line with your edits which I’ve always been a fan of!

Very excited to view your vision for this movie later today. Thank you for time and effort that went into this project.

Dom's Useless Prequel Edits
Time

DominicCobb said:

Well considering I’m nearing the finish line on ROTS, figured I’d finally share a cutlist.

(Keep in mind many - if not most - of these edits have been stolen from Hal9000, L8wrtr, aalenfae, and many others here.)

  • Scene by scene color correction and film grain applied throughout.
  • New crawl, and new main title recording (Williams performing on the “Hollywood Sound” album)
  • Trimmed superfluous and awkward dialogue in the opening battle
  • The vulture droid only fires two missiles - no buzz droids at all. Anakin gets them to blow each other up, set to the Rebel fanfare cue that used to accompany R2 taking out the buzz droid.
  • A classic track from the original film plays as the Jedi make their daring landing on the Invisible Hand and fight the battle droids.
  • Removed Obi-Wan leaping from his cockpit, and his little jump during the fight with the battle droids.
  • The Jedi do not encounter droidekas, and the elevator sequence is gone. None of the R2 stuff.
  • Dooku doesn’t do a flip, and Palpatine doesn’t warn the Jedi that he’s a Sith lord.
  • The music for Dooku’s arrival plays through the beginning of the duel.
  • Palpatine also does not make random sounds throughout the fight.
  • Cut away as the railing starts to land on Obi-Wan.
  • Anakin quickly decapitates Dooku right away without goading, but feels bad about it. He let his anger get the best of him, but while he notes that this wasn’t the Jedi way, Palpatine sets his mind at ease. Step one towards Vader.
  • The ship going lopsided has been trimmed. To get rid of the silly ray shields, the battle droids capture Anakin and co. while they hang in the elevator shaft.
  • The bridge fight and subsequent landing has been completed rescored (with SFX recreated where necessary) with a classic track from ROTJ.
  • The whole scene of Grievous meeting the heroes has been tightening up and reorganized. Obi-wan interjects during, rather than after Anakin’s joke to Grievous, for a better comedic effect.
  • Trims made throughout the bridge sequence, primarily removing battle droid silliness.
  • Grievous says, “Time to abandon ship” as he escapes out the window.
  • Slight trims during the crash landing on Coruscant.
  • Added another classic track from the original film to score the moment after the happy landing (the transport flying through Coruscant and landing).
  • Jar Jar’s line is gone.
  • A slight sort of haze/gauze filter has been applied to the nighttime balcony scene at Padme’s apartment.
  • Removed the ridiculous “So love has blinded you?” back and forth in the balcony scene.
  • End the scene where Anakin tells Padme about his nightmare on the more ominous note of “We don’t need Obi-wan’s help,” rather than talking about it being a “blessing.”
  • The next scene is Anakin missing the briefing. He doesn’t ask if Palpatine getting more executive powers is a good thing. Anakin’s much surer of his opinions in this edit - the goal being, in every possible instance, when it comes down to Jedi vs. Palpatine he is firmly with Palpatine as a way to make his turn to Vader clearer (it’s a matter of allegiance).
  • The next scene is Anakin summoned to the opera. Cut out mentions of Grievous and Anakin spying on Palpatine to fit this placement. The idea here is that right away Anakin is given a solution to the problem of his nightmares. It is of course not within the bounds of the Jedi, but everything that Anakin experiences in regard to the Jedi from them on only goes to make this option seem more viable. When we finally hear Anakin say “I’ve found a way to save you from my nightmares,” since it’s been so long before he told Padme that there’s such an option, we know that he’s fully considered the implications of that solution and going to go with it anyway.
  • To sell this even more, after Palpatine’s line “Not from a Jedi” in the opera, we hard cut to the temple, where Yoda tells Anakin to, essentially, get over it (trimmed his excessive lecturing and his probing about who the dreams are about).
  • Next scene is the first “seeds of Rebellion” scene in Bail’s apartment, cutting the reference to Palpatine having control of the Jedi council (which hasn’t happened yet). It’s criminal how little Padme has to do in this film. This scene doesn’t accomplish much, but it does alleviate that to some extent. Placed here mostly to make sure it doesn’t feel too jumpy, going from Anakin in one place to another to another.
  • Next is finally the scene in Palpatine’s office where he appoints Anakin to the council. Reinserted a couple deleted lines where Palpatine criticizes how the Jedi treat Anakin. Palpatine: “They see you as a threat to their power.” Anakin: “I’ve sensed that.” To achieve Anakin’s line, I’ve overlayed his mouth from the deleted scene over the finished shot from the film (it’s the same take, they just digitally closed his mouth in the final version). This exchange helps to show Anakin has distrusted the Jedi to some extent since before this film.
  • Before the Jedi council meeting, inserted the “plot to destroy the Jedi” scene, but removed redundant lines that also feature in the later scene in the Jedi war room.
  • Trimmed a bit in Anakin’s appointment to the council. Anakin does not say he understands that this move by Palpatine is “disturbing” (he doesn’t). He outburst is barely that, which makes Mace’s “Take a seat” feel more judgmental, and Anakin more reasonable.
  • Trimmed Anakin’s pauses in his argument with Obi-wan to once again make him more sure of his stance in all this.
  • Added a menacing underscore to the sunset scene at Padme’s apartment to highlight the tension between her and Anakin.
  • Added a wistful rendition of the Force theme (from the extended ROTS end credits suite) to score Anakin and Obi-wan’s final scene as friends.
  • After Obi-wan jumps to hyperspace, transition to the deleted scene of the delegation speaking with Palpatine in his office.
  • Transition from there to the next nightmare, hopefully highlighting the doubt about Padme that Palpatine is sowing but following it up with Obi-wan appearing in Anakin’s nightmare and him asking about if he came by.
  • Cut extraneous shot of CG gas attendants on Utapau.
  • Cut out Grievous saying that a volcanic planet is safe.
  • Cut out a redundant line (utilized earlier from a deleted scene) in the scene where Anakin informs Palpatine that Obi-wan has engaged Grievous.
  • Cut out Anakin saying he’d like to kill Palpatine (he shouldn’t). Instead, he just says he’s going to do what he’s supposed to (turn him over to the council).
  • When we go back to Utapau, we saw the ongoing battle that originally played before Cody was given Order 66. Fits better here, before Obi-wan kills Grievous.
  • No overbearing Palpatine’s voiceover as Anakin waits in the council chambers.
  • Streamlined dialogue as Windu and his gang confront Palpatine.
  • Trimmed the lightsaber fight, including and especially Palpatine’s spinning.
  • Palpatine doesn’t use Force lightning until Anakin has cut off Mace’s arm, which helps give Anakin the appearance that Palpatine is going to be helplessly executed, and also masks the stupid “scarring” by transitioning to wrinkly face using flickering lights once he finally attacks Mace.
  • Anakin’s march on the temple is rescored with a classic Imperial march cue from TESB.
  • Easily the most radical cut in this whole edit, when Palpatine executes Order 66, we don’t see it enacted throughout the galaxy - only on the planets with the characters we really know (Utapau, Kashyyyk, and Coruscant). This sequence is rescored with a rendition of the Emperor’s theme from ROTJ.
  • Anakin doesn’t kill any younglings, we only see him look upon the massacre in the temple.
  • The Imperial theme from the original film plays while Obi-wan is avoiding clones on Utapau, courtesy of the Rogue One soundtrack.
  • Removed Yoda’s interactions with the Wookiees after Order 66.
  • The classic cue that accompanied the Rebel blockade runner in the original film plays when we see Obi-wan board said Rebel blockade runner (rather than the altogether unfitting heroic cue that plays in the theatrical version).
  • Bail doesn’t respond to Mas Amedda, and the video of Mas Amedda has a VHS effect to make it look more similar to the video chat screens from the OT.
  • Removed Obi-Wan and Yoda’s fight to enter the Temple.
  • Added the cue from the original film that plays when Ben tells Luke about Vader to the scene where Obi-wan learns about Vader.
  • Cut out Obi-wan and Yoda talking about killing the Emperor, because Yoda doesn’t fight him in this edit.
  • Cut out Obi-wan telling Padme about killing younglings, for at least three different reasons.
  • Cut Obi-wan entering the closet on Padme’s ship.
  • Once again added the original Imperial theme from the Rogue One soundtrack, this time to the moment where Palpatine’s hologram tells Anakin he’s brought “peace” to the galaxy.
  • Padme doesn’t mention younglings to Anakin, naturally.
  • No showdown between Yoda and Palpatine whatsoever. It’s the Mustafar duel all the way.
  • Cut out Obi-wan dealing in absolutes.
  • Cut out Anakin and Obi-wan wrestling on the conference table, because it’s silly and it doesn’t fit.
  • No “It’s over Anakin,” no “high ground.” Just a swift de-limbing.
  • Removed Obi-Wan referencing the chosen one prophecy while Anakin roasts. Obi-wan only chooses to say a few words, which makes them even more poignant.
  • No reference to Padme losing the will to live. Any edit that includes this lie should be ejected into space.
  • Vader’s “No” replaced with the more visceral, guttural yell of the Japanese dub.
  • A final cue of the original Imperial theme to accompany our first look at an Imperial star destroyer.

This post is subject to editing (for typos and if I forgot something). But that should be it.

WOW

I wanted to take a second to say that you to all of you! This has been a great experience and a wonderful community!

I didn’t know what to expect when I decided to post on here. But I need to give a special shout out and much gratitude to ForceGhostRecon! If you haven’t checked out this guys edit yet, please go support him.

ForceGhostRecon did something for me that I really needed to make my edit feel complete. He let me use the Green Lightsaber footage! Seriously, how amazing is that!

I want to send out links to my updated cut. There’s more going on than just the color of the lightsaber that I did. but that alone would have made me want to send you all out links, so keep an eye on your inbox if you have PM’d in the past for a copy of this cut.

I really wanted to make sure I did this open and public to thank ForceGhostRecon because it meant so much to me and I wanted everyone to know what kind of person we have here. I refuse to take credit for someone else’s work. So if you appreciate my cut and feel that Green just makes it better, then you have him to thank.

I love ForceGhost, he’s such a soulful man who as brought back SW for me as been in limbo since TLJ. I must admit that there was a lot to like in TLJ but it didn’t flow from TFA and felt like a completely different movie. I felt the opening 40 Minutes or so of TFA had a magical quality.

Hi again everyone. I am still working on the 2nd version of the cut of this movie and I think I have the opening set up that I need. Again, this is me trying to clean up the audio. So I am replacing some music to help flow from once scene to another. I added back in some special fx. This is the result and let me know what you think. I was already approved on the cut from the Star Wars traditional music to the cut of the new music as we pan in on the ship, so now I’m working on the transition to the Deleted Scene with Poe.

  1. Death Star CC (still not sure if that’s definitive. I’d like a more Rogueone-ish look).
  2. New track.
  3. New Death Star laser.
  4. Two clips for the planet destruction, with a color correction into green for the “flame explosions”).
  5. Krypton explosion.
  6. Millennium Falcon’s interior color correction more in line with TFA.

Superb

Made a few minor changes. Let me know what you think.

It is a time of despair.
Luke Skywalker, last
of the legendary Jedi
Masters, has vanished.

In his absence the evil
FIRST ORDER has risen
from the ashes of the
Empire with a weapon
more deadly than the
dreaded Death Star,
able to destroy any star
system while hidden
in the depths of the Unknown Regions.

With the Republic held
hostage by this deadly
threat, they dare support
only a small Resistance
to locate the long-lost Jedi
Master and defeat the shadow now
spreading across the galaxy…

Really like this crawl

Get ready for "Star Wars - Shroud of the Sith", a radical fan edit of "The Phantom Menace"
Time

Sheepish said:

Okay, I’m going to touch up on the greens a bit.

While I’m at it, here’s a few clips from the edit you can check out.

Obi-Wan vs Darth Maul - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrzwbqfCxMg (This was uploaded prior to the film grain addition. The colors have been tweaked since then, so don’t let this be an example of that. There’s also a weird cricket sound at around the 58 second mark. No idea what the hell that was or where it came from, so that’s also been removed. Basically, let this be an example of the cut of the scene)

Watto’s introduction - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9WZDA-5Oug (Again, this is a rudimentary version of this scene, pre-grain. The cut is essentially the final version, but the sound mixing isn’t complete, and Jar-Jar’s voice hasn’t been added to the scene. The music in this scene is what I’d like you to focus on)

Also, there is a version of a Darth Maul scene on this YouTube channel, but it’s outdated and looks nothing like the final color-grading. However, the added probe droid recording is in the final cut, so if you’d like to check that out, here ya go - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aOgb5y39vA

I’d like to reiterate that the coloring of these previews is NOT the current version.

You tube clips are unavailable

Here’s the first Maul fight but more ‘OT’ styled:

https://streamable.com/ahxdo

I cut pretty much every line Anakin has, I reduced shots that were entirely CG, I omitted some ADR lines, I tried to create a better flow between actors. I think I’m going to create a new thread for my ‘Phantom Menace 70s edition’ or something that would include ideas like my old R2 introduction clip.

Also, I’m thinking about omitting Anakin’s name until Qui-Gon introduces him to Obi-Wan. Thoughts? Delay that ‘dramatic irony’ a little.

100% improvement with this fight scene ,well done

Here is a portion of my Phantom Menace edit:

https://streamable.com/ezlmj

There are countless specific changes but I can run through the major stuff:

  • Removed Jar-Jar
  • Anakin is less enthusiastic; he’s a slave.
  • Character interactions have been edited so that it becomes clear to the viewer that Qui-Gon is Anakin’s father without outright saying it.
  • Anakin no longer comes up with the entire plan to get the money, he just brings up the race and prize money.

What do you think?

Impressive

But he looked more like his Force Phantom self in the TLJ flashbacks than he does here. Unless he’s interacting or guiding Rey through visions similar to what she had involuntarily in TFA? The possible wrinkle here is everyone percieves Luke as they last saw him?

That’s what Mike Zeroh said apparently. I don’t buy anything he says but hey!

I think it’s more just a mock up. Even The Last Jedi photography had Phasma without her helmet on. We only saw her eye in the final film. I don’t think these things are meant to be taken literally but do feed into story context in subtle ways. If that makes sense?

How can Seroh on have several scopes daily.it’s hilarious

The Last Jedi: Legendary (SPOILERS)
Time

Hal 9000 said:

Now that I am starting to turn some of my attention to THE LAST JEDI, I hate to make this edit much longer than it already is. It’s already the longest Star Wars movie, and when I consider that my prequel edits clock it at as low as 1 hour and 50 minutes, I am wondering what else could be trimmed.

I am just tossing this around, but what do you guys think of the idea to borrow poppasketti’s approach to removing the Finn vs. Phasma duel? Compared to the theatrical TLJ, this hypothetical version of Finn’s journey would…

  • Add the orientation early on from the deleted scene with Poe’s jacket
  • Reinstate a sense of “wow I guess people get oppressed” from the Canto Bight balcony (compared to TLJ:L V2, anyway)
  • Remove Finn and Rose racking up insurance claims across Space Vegas
  • Remove his fight with Phasma, but reinstating the scene that demonstrates his resolve and references the earlier deleted scene

It seems like Finn would still have a good arc this way. The only concern that sticks out to me about the idea is that Phasma gets reintroduced only to die offscreen. I’d rather she not appear in the film at all if we go this way, but this is the way it would have to be. For this reason, I am leaning away from making this change, but I felt it was worthwhile to toss out there for discussion.

Imho Phasma shouldn’t be in TLJ.
