Reconstructing the prequels from what was implied in the original trilogy

  1. Make Qui-Gon Obi-Wan’s elder brother.
  2. In the Naboo saber fight, Maul cuts off Qui-Gon’s arm. Right before Maul can finish Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan uses a mind trick to sneak up on Maul and kill him.
  3. Qui-Gon takes the role of Count Dooku. He escapes the Republic, leads the Separatists, yada yada. The key difference is that he is not in league with Sidious.
  4. Anakin slays Qui-Gon instead of Dooku at the start of ROTS.

Basically make it so that the character of Dooku does not exist and his role gets transferred to Qui-Gon, the Secessionist Light Side Templar.

I think a complete reboot is needed. Not restructuring. Qui-Gon has no business being a major character at all. Obi-Wan should be a full-fledged Jedi Knight and aged enough that he’s had a few apprentices. Not to mention that in midst of 20 years, Obi Wan goes from looking like he’s in his late 30’s and then 80 in A New Hope. His age needs adjusting.

Naboo had no purpose. Alderaan needs to be a major planet in the films. We all know why.

I like the idea of uniforms. I too feel like it was strange the Tattooine clothing line becomes the Jedi robes.

I have a lot of thoughts about re-imagined prequels… Just need time to lay them all out.

These are interesting ideas.

I’ve also contemplated the issue of Luke using his Skywalker name. Sine we really can’t get away from that I think the thing to do is:

  1. Make Obi-Wan the protagonist of the film. He’s the character we follow in the trilogy.
  2. Play this thing out where Anakin has no idea of kids at all. Maybe he’s been made to believe Amidala is dead by episode 2 in a very convincing way. I think the only way to help this as mush as possible is to portray it as Anakin has no clue kids were conceived or born at all.

That last bit would have to be achieved by having a lot have to happen in Episode 2. Maybe “The act” happens in episode 2, but the fake death of Amidala happens there as well which would plunge him deeper into the dark side.

The third film takes place 9 months later. The birth of the twins occurs, and a side-bar adventure is Padme going through a series of events to hide the kids, and act that at one point leads to a sacrificial death. None of which Anakin is privy to as he’s busy with his Jedi Holocaust.

I’ve actually been toying around with this idea. I’ve elected to make my Rogue One edit into episode III, but I’ve been thinking of just having Star Wars movies that remove the “episode” part. Fixes a lot of issues.

I’ve considered both of these ideas. I’m actually holding out for these star wars stories to give me at least two more pre-classic trilogy films that could work as EP I and II. If not, I may drop episodes numbers as well.

I’m pretty sure Emanswfan joined a cult or something. They haven’t updated in a while.

sadly i am new to this site and dont know how to post screenshots sorry for being a noob but i have got great quality and different settings produce different quality that is why i left it open so you can chose your own settings

Uploading it to something like imgur and posting the link is good enough.

And what’s wrong with a cult, sir?
