I might. But I really want this to be able to stand in as a middle chapter for those whose PT consists of AOTC & ROTS so I’m gonna try for that first.
Yes that means losing a LOT of the Clone Wars narrative, but I think in end it will be worth it to have a simple, concise, easy to watch version of Ahsoka & Anakin’s story.
As such after watching more of the footage, I’ve decided to cut Grievous from the film entirely. In the grand scheme of things, outside of the 2003 series, he is a weak villain who doesn’t add much of anything to the mythos. Instead I’ll be starting with the Anakin/Ventress showdown, which gives me the opportunity to craft her as the central antagonist of the story.
Edit: So i’ve Actually managed to cut together a fairly cohesive story out of CW’03, The Hidden Enemy, Bombad Jedi, TCW Movie, Cloak of Darkness, Senate Spy, Landing At Point Rain Parts 1-3 and Brain Invaders.
Clone Wars ‘03: We start with Anakin vs Ventress, after he defeats her we cut to the Qui-gon/Ani visión and it proceeds from there until Anakin leaves Coruscant after being Knighted.
The Hidden Enemy: The Traitor Clone story has been cut, Ventress no longer addresses her remarks to Obi-wan, and the fight is edited slightly to feel like a rematch with Anakin.
Bombad Jedi: Padme rescues herself and Jar Jar literally does nothing. This is made possible by intercutting with Hidden Enemy. Gunray is captured and Ventress is sent to rescue him.
Clone Wars ‘08:
Everything but the battle for Christophsis is cut, ends with Anakin telling Yoda he’s happy to train Ahsoka and everyone leaving the planet.
Cloak of Darkness: This episode is mostly intact, just trimmed for length/suspense. Ahsoka no longer acts like she knows about fighting Ventress as this is her first encounter. Anything she says is inferred to be based on what Anakin told her.
Senate Spy: Intercutting with CoD above this episode is mostly cut for length and removing unnecessary bits.
Landing At Point Rain Part 1-3/Brain Invaders:
Again trimmed for length. The opening bit with Anakin & Ahsoka arriving on the bridge is edited for continuity with previous footage. The capture of Poggle is trimmed way down and the brain slugs removed. The scene of Ahsoka/Barriss in bed/mess hall is moved to before Poggle is captured and the arc ends with them all returning to Coruscant.
That concludes the first half of the film and is as far as I’ve gotten. But it works well, there is a coherent plot that can be followed and nothing requires any leaps of logic to explain how point A led to point B.
I’m toying with adding a “One Year Later” subtitle for the transition to Heroes on Both Sides, but I’m not sure.
