I’m just hoping C-3PO’s little accident with a battle droid’s body from AOTC doesn’t become a plot point in this movie.

Could… could you imagine the unique frustration I would feel taking that in on opening day?

Please no, I‘d be quite beside myself. Symbolism and imagery are fun, but this slapstick or Wicket’s/JarJar‘s antics were terribly out of place.

What do you think about moving the Jamillia-scene and maybe the Leaving-Coruscant-scene with Padme and her handmaiden to the beginning of AOTC to point out the politics and the thread of an assassination attempt on Padme, if she’ll return to the senate.

This could add some tension to the Landingplattform-scene (Have these scenes actual names?) itself.

I don’t think this shmi-theory will be in IX. It doesn’t bring Anakin’s arc full circle. Only by wandering down the reylo road Anakin(Ben)'s story can be complete. There have already been enough evidence for this (similar concept arts, themes, shots) to say that the theory is pretty much a safe bet.

I’m more interested in how they will reveal that Ben is Anakin and Rey is Padme (if this is indeed the case) and how the fandom will react.

Here it is.
Again, I really need suggestions on how to improve it.

Yoda uses Force Projection to fight Palpatine. The reason is that while Yoda is on the asteroid meditating, he’s witnessing everything that’s happening, and he hears Palpatine in his office saying: “Tell the captain to ready my shuttle. I sense Lord Vader is in danger”.
Yoda knows that Kenobi is going to fight Anakin, and if Palpy goes to help Anakin, Obi Wan is doomed. So he uses the projection to stall the Emperor, just like Luke in EpVIII
.

*Color Correction (not finished).
Volume still needs work.
Less cringe from Anakin.
Shortened duel. I removed the way-too-fast parts, at least wherever I could.
I tried to remove the parts where Yoda and Palpy’s lightsabers keep their contacts.
Final music, which I think is kind of ok, but tell me what you think.
Yoda’s voicover from previous movies or previous moments from this movie.*

I liked that you cut most of the dialogue from the Anakin vs. Obi fight, it worked extraordinary well in combination with the music and voiceover.

Apart from that I think you should cut the Yoda‘s fingernails losing grip part, it is just to much physical interaction for a projection.

P.S.: I would try to remove the ray shields that protected the mustafar station and explain the massiv volcanic eruptions because of Anakins rage, this would be more fate of the universe like and Anakin would appear much more like an all powerful Chosen One. It would also suit him talking about his new powers, overestimating them and eventually leading to his downfall.

Emanswfan's Prequel Trilogy (Ep II Opening Clips Now Available)

This radical take on AOTC sounds interesting, especially this Geonosis intro.
But could you please tell me how you will work around the sequence of Padme and Ani trying to save Obi and explain why they went to Geonosis again. I might have missed it while reading the thread.

Anyways it may be worth a try to move the whole Geonosis part to the beginning (maybe recolor them, btw your recolor looked nice) and just keep the Dooku fight (it could take place in Dooku’s evil tower, a mashup of Vaders Castle and the Orthanc 😉) and let the movie end with the creation of the Grand Army of the Republic and a declaration of war).
I am not completely sure how this could work (just an idea yet), but it would darken the tone a lot and fit the mood of the Anakin’s downfall. On the other hand the final movie may be rather short.

RISE OF THE DARK SIDE (Revenge of the Sith edit) + ANH ideas
Time

I just watched it and have to admit that I thought the first paragraph was a little boring. The rest was fine.

For the first paragraph, I would suggest something like:

“The Republic is under
attack. The never-ending
CLONE WARS are raging.
Chaos rose from the soil
of War. The Force is
imbalanced.”

Just a little bit more epic and less descriptive and informative to start it all off 😉

And maybe you could remove the “desperate” from the last paragraph to imply that the Separatist are not at the edge of losing the war to give the first part of the movie a more menacing tone and tension, making Anakins turn a bit more reasonable.

Hey SWOTFAN25, I thought about your idea of building the plot around Luke and using him to connect the eras.

Maybe you could start the movie with Padme telling Anakin that she is pregnant (and maybe add a Fellowship of the Ring like prologue), then focus the narrative on her and cut the Mustafar fight out.
Maybe the “Seeds of the Rebellion” plot could be used here, although the turn of Anakin (from Padme’s perspective) should be focused.
After her death and the Tatooine-Sunset-Morph, which sounds amazing, the plot of ANH would continue as normal and you could add Flashbacks of the Mustafar fight to the Obi-Wan vs Vader fight from ANH.

Anakins turn from his point of view could be added in-between ESB and ROTJ to avoid the Han-in-carbonite problem (just let the rebels save him offscreen and show flashbacks to the Prequels).

I tried to edit the OT into a 3 in 1 movie, I consider it a failure.

For one, 3 in 1 prequel edits work because the prequels have a ton of filler, and the OT doesn’t really. There is a ton of stuff you could cut (the point of my 3 in 1 edit was to have one single Death Star, so obviously the Death Star attack in ANH could go), but not nearly as much. I couldn’t really get it shorter than 3h55, and I cheated by speeding it up from 23.976 FPS to 25 FPS.

Secondly, I felt like having the Jabba’s Palace sequence in the same movie as Han getting frozen in carbonite was… bad? It felt like backtracking, although I could also see it being like a chance to see more of the universe? In a meta way?

I don’t know. Don’t let this discourage you, rocknroll41’s idea especially seems promising. I’m just warning you it’ll definitely be hard to get to work.

I think the best way to handle Han being frozen in carbonite is to cut this subplot.

Yet I am unsure on how to do so. The best way I see is to adjust the scene of Lando visiting Han, Leia, Chewie and 3PO in their cell, so it is hinted that he may help them and then dubb the dialogue of an imperial officer telling Vader that the prisoners escaped.
On bord of the falcon Han would rest, still suffering, because he was tortured by the Empire (use the scene of him laying down on the plank bed in the cell).

The most difficult challenge would be to add Han to the escape from Cloud City sequence.
Even though he would be unable to fight, because of the torture he experienced a few minutes ago.

Sorry hit the wrong button, it’s definitely time to go and get some sleep 😉

I apologize if some of my posts have been terse lately. Most of the time, the reality is that I only have one free hand to punch keys with. I appreciate the fervent discussion very much, because it makes for the best possible, most informed final product. I am also tossing around the droid factory in my head, but have no intention at all to reinstate the garage scene.

That’s alright. We all think your Star Wars work is fantastic and are contributing to help you make new versions/edits.

On a side note, if you were to include the garage scene, there is something that could be done that I believe only seciors has done. That is to put the scene in a different spot.

ATTACK OF THE CLONES:
[Anakin Brings Shmi Back]>[Garage Scene]>[Shmi’s Funeral]

SECIORS (ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC):
[Anakin Brings Shmi Back]>[Shmi’s Funeral]>[Garage Scene]

Thats an interesting idea, I have to watch it, to see how it works.
But one tiny little problem I see is that you would mess around with their costumes A LOT, but hey Padme is changing her dress all the time anyways.

That sounds like a nice little game 😉
I think to make this work, you would have to put the focus of each trilogy on one character and cut everything else.

The PT-part would obviously focus on Anakin. Any PT-edit should work as a basis. If you want something more drastically you could cut down ROTS to a condensed 40 minute-movie and ad glimpses of AOTC to the beginning (something similar to the prologue in Lord of the Rings).

The OT-part should be about Luke and have only one Deathstar (change the ANH design with the unfinished one from ROTJ). I would cut the whole opening of ANH (everything happening on the Tantive IV and in the desert), until we meet Luke for the first time. (hell, maybe start Lukes arc with him being attacked by the Tusken-Raiders. Then I would continue with the original story, until they escape the Deathstar and cut straight to the battle of Hoth (obviously Luke would not be a leader of the Renegade-squadron). Ben’s “Luke, trust the Force” moment could be reinserted in the escape from the Deathstar, when they were attacked by the Tie-Fighters. The scene in which Obi-Wan tells Luke to go to Dagobah could maybe placed during the Battle of Hoth, after Lukes speeder crashed.
After the Battle of Hoth Luke visits Yoda and the plot surrounding Han, Leia, Chewie and 3PO would be cut or heavily trimmed down to its essence (maybe keep the emperor-hologramm scene). The whole Han being put in carbonite, would be cut. I would use the Scene of Lando visiting the crew in their cell and change Lando’s dialogue (unsure how), to imply that he is offering to help them escape. Then the escape sequence would play out (imply that Han is to weak to fight, because of the torture). After they escaped Cloud City, Luke will get his new hand, visit Dagobah and build his new lightsaber (use the deleted scene and add some plants to the cave). After this ROTJ would continue as usual, but without most of the Ewok and space battle part.

The ST-part may be the most difficult to think about in terms of restructuring the plot, because TROS doesn’t exist yet. Depending on this movie, this part should focus on either Ben or Rey (or both, who knows). So just cut out everything that does not support the story of them in any way.
