It might be the funniest change he ever did…
Plus a new SW film by Kevin Feige to come - who seems to quite popular and successful with his efforts with the Marvel franchise…
I didn’t know about that 😕 (this is terrible news, Marvel movies probably are the worst things in modern cinema…)
Looks greenish to me.
So one last shitty Lucas change but better colors all the way ? Sounds like a good deal to me.
Are you going to implement the new sequence idea you had for your fanedit ?
It’s brillant !
“Your edit: dew it !” 😄
I must confess, this is why I hope Octoroxx will someday complete his conservative edit take on EpIII.
Thanks, I liked the previous extended edition 😉 What video source have you used ? I’m asking because I remember v1 had a picture with many compression artifacts.
edit: nevermind, i’ve just checked v1 and the video quality is very good.
I missed when Star Wars (from 1977 to 2005) were serious movies without irony that break the fourth wall.
In fact this one isn’t really breaking a fourth wall since Jar Jar is clearly gonna speak with Anakin. But the SE Boba in ANH is one of the very few instances where that happen. Plus the Tarzan reference in two movies. So yeah, it happened before, agreed. Not on the current magnitude though.
The text idea is so weird. 7 episodes without any mention to that, and suddenly they are somehow important… but not (Luke didn’t read them, Yoda destroys them)… but important again since they finally got saved… but not that important because they only are saved in the blink of a shot… it’s really the weird thing about how RJ handled his Star Wars flick. A mix between taking things seriously but ultimately making fun of it… but finally not… but still a little bit… I missed when Star Wars (from 1977 to 2005) were serious movies without irony that break the fourth wall.
does it deserve a topic ?
Does this deserve a response?
(No, just a report)

When I heard he was being brought in to replace Trevorrow, I wasn’t enthused.
At the very least, he’s still a better choice than Trevorrow (the Jurassic World flicks… gosh…)
and hope for a good explanation in the film for Palpatine’s return.
It’s JJ… I still can’t believe how he could miss that much the target with TFA. I’m pretty sure TROS is gonna be a fun ride to watch with great visual work and a damn fine Williams score, but also something totally useless and bland. It’s what JJ does: forgettable and dumb movies. I don’t even get why people are expecting something good or worth the Saga at this point. After 2 movies the ST has no plot, no real characters, nothing. The last entry just looks like a big fat ROTJ rehash…
If someone within the next year delivers a fanedit of Terminator Dark Fate that only does an audio edit to replace the lame score with tracks from T2/T3/T4, let me know 😉
How is it a big budgeted film can’t get Yoda spot on but a dedicated fan can?
But for another time…
You know what even more dumb (à la “Dumb and Vader”) ? In the SE, the Emperor uses the exact same line Vader uses with Luke: “Search your feelings. You know it to be true”. I love this line, but with the SE it looks as if Vader thought “hey, what about speaking like Lord Sidious ? He sounded badass, I should do the same! He won’t mind if I steal his line, I’m gonna kill him with my son anyway, so…”

You got me double checking the Vader scream, as I was worried I’d made a mistake. However, as planned, the alternate ending version has the Russian version.
LOL you’re right, I don’t know why I misheard it 😃
Thanks for the uncompressed audio, getting them right now 😉
Hal, are you also going to release the uncompressed tracks ? I’ve just finished to sync the alternate track for TAS v6 (thanks again to Ash for rendering the file in dts quality 😉), I could do the same for LoE v6 (alternate ending version included, since I think it will be my go version and the Vader’s scream is the original one, I do prefer the less terrible russian one).
Btw, great work on v6. I really like you put back a few thinks I’m kinda fond of, but the most important thing for me is the Anakin shot inside the Temple while the Jedi are getting killed by the Clones. It’s just perfect that way. It’s very close to be the perfect edit of EpIII for me ( just miss the apartment scenes and maybe the “Sergio Leone” close up on Grievous, but they might have been tricky to incorporate in this new and better flow of the sequences). Impressive work on removing Chewie (I’m neutralto that change, but if I stay true to myself and to what I don’t like about the Sequels, I must admit that Chewie in EpIII was just dumb fanservice) and the droids (again neutral to that change, but the job is seamless).
Here his the alternate audio changelist I could try to make for v6 (considering previous v5 audio changes have been implemented in v6):
Added clone trooper’s “General Kenobi. General Skywalker.” (with added radio effect) from TCW tvseries (C1-C3)
Replaced Grievous “Ahhhhhh!” with “The negociator!” (C3 only)
When the firemen ships come to help Anakin, added a clone trooper’s “General Skywalker?” (with native and ressourced radio effect) from TCW tvseries (C3 only)
Added Palpatine’s deleted dialogue line to Anakin appointment scene (C1-C2-C3)
(You fought many battles the Jedi Council thought were lost. And… you saved my life.)
Added Anakin chuckling (C3 only)
When Anakin marches on the Jedi Temple, replaced the recycled cue with Vader’s theme variation from Joel McNeely’s “Shadows of the Empire’s Main Title” (All Channels)
Added a “No…” before Vader’s infamous “No!”
(well, not sure about that one… I need fresh ears)
(it’s kinda the “Clone Wars canon cut” alternate track 😄)
What about adding an acklay during the Vader v Ben saber duel ? Could be a very nice AOTC reference.
It’s nice commentary on where Adywan thinks the Prequels belong (a large, junk-collecting tank). I’m happy that it’s the only real prequel reference, unless there’s a skeleton of a prequel species in the rancor pit.
Yo, Ady, could you replace the Rancor with an Acklay? That would be GREAT, thanks!
I’m pretty sure that there isn’t a Rancor in episode IV. 😉
But could you add a Rancor in ANH ? 😄
- If we acknowledge the Prequels (say, Hal9000’s edits)
Even the official edits you know 😉
Btw well done Ridley, it sounds very natural. I’m sold on this idea now 😃
Only Grievous had hobbies, like collecting lightsabers. I presume the Sith were kinda jealous he had this idea first, so they just kept on doing nothing of their free time. Except Palpatine, an Opera enthusiast.
Don’t mention it 😃, you’re the one doing this incredible preservation work. I’m just glad I could help the best I could 😉
The comparisons to Nazism aren’t coincidental.
In Nazi regime a few women were known as pilots (and in France and UK during the same period you wouldn’t find many women serving as soldiers or pilots anyway). Besides, the comparison is weird: Germany didn’t colonize many countries and they haven’t kept their colonies for long, so there wasn’t that much black or arabian people to begin with in Germany when Nazi won the elections. So yeah German soldiers were white male during WWII… as were Polish soldiers, Italian soldiers, France metropolitan soldiers, UK soldiers, Russian soldiers, etc.
