The Star Wars galaxy is like that, plus 1000 years.

What I would like to have would be like an imgur album of pictures or gifs for every shot in the prequels of any screens or displays. Basically anywhere where the tech/software could potentially be “retrofied”, and then make a separate OT album to use as reference. Then we could make a vfx shotlist that we could work through over time. I don’t think every display has to be changed, but a lot of them could be.

Yo this sounds like a really good idea, I could get started on the first album in a few weeks when my new machine is set up, unless someone else wants to do it first. I’d definitely do mock-ups though.

New Special Effects and cuts that i want too see in the fan edit of prequel trilogy.
My Dream List:
-make Grievous look cool like in the cartoon version of clone wars, make him tough or reboot him as darth maul.
-deepfakes hayden christensen lol ( i want to see him more as starfighter like to prove obi wan’s says in the ANH and jedi knight in the revenge of the sith and aotc Or other characters too like yoda, count dooku (improve his character)
-make the tone of the sounds like in 70s
-a little Dub of other Characters
-Cgi-Remove mace’ Fellow jedi in Darth Sidious Scene, only mace wants to arrest or kill him
-Make the Contrast,Colors,Brightness in episode 2 and 3 feels like OT
-new scene in the of how clone troopers retired or endangered?
-replace the whole vader scene after he wore the suit to cover the nooooooo scene
Padme Survived?

These are doable, the rest seems really tough to get right but I’m certain that these changes can be made by one guy. If only adywan was still on the case, then we’d get real practical sets and such.

Another Revenge of the Sith idea.

I believe I’ve mentioned this before, and I’ve seen versions of this idea on blogs that try to “rewrite” the movie, so it isn’t new.
But what if Anakin executing Dooku played a part in Anakin not being made a master?

Just an idea, but what if in the dolly in shot of Anakin standing before the council, we were to add a hologram of Anakin standing over Dooku’s body, basically a security hologram from the Separatist ship. Then after the hologram fades, Windu tells Anakin is on the council, but will not be granted the rank of master.

The idea being that Anakin executes Dooku am immediately recognizes that it wasn’t the Jedi way. The Jedi then reprimand Anakin for this action by not making him a master. Then later, when Windu is about to execute Palpatine and says the same thing Palpatine did, that “He’s too dangerous to be kept alive”, it makes Anakin see the Jedi as hypocritical, and not any better than the Sith. That Windu is trying to do the same thing that Anakin was punished for.

The reason I even suggest this is that the only reason Mace and the other Jedi seem so weary of Anakin is because of his close relationship with Palpatine, but their attitude towards Anakin feels pretty hostile even from the beginning. They’ve known Anakin since he was a boy, so is his relationship with Palpatine enough to justify their distrust and coldness toward Anakin?

So, I wonder if Anakin did something at the beginning of the film that held a consequence, it would help explain the Jedi’s lack of trust in him. He is a powerful Jedi, but the death of Dooku would be proof that Anakin teeters toward the dark side. I also think Anakin’s actions carrying that consequence would be a little more compelling story-wise, as well.

Maybe someone could articulate the pros and cons of this idea better than I could. Would love to gets some thoughts on this.

I like it, you could also make hologram footage of anakin talking to palpy about being a sith lord, mace watches the footage and says ‘it’s a plot to destroy the jedi’ and goes to hunt down palpatine, this would eliminate the awful middle moment where anakin tells mace about palpatine being a sith lord and I think the tension would actually be elevated quite a bit.

Tell me, would you be willing to send me one of the excerpts from your TPM edit with the Naboo starfighters melting on the separatist warship?

I’m not sure exactly what you’re referencing here? I feel like I’m missing something, is there some sort of footage of the naboo starfighters melting?

Yes I agree, I always had the impression that the two films could have been linked to this narrative thread, I intend to introduce the beginning of the clone war using images from Battlefront II, I must try to use them successfully because I don’t have many images for the Battle of Naboo except those from TPM

Cool idea, maybe some cutscenes could be used in a montage or something.

Interesting, that would be cool to incorporate an invasion into AOTC, the seperatists hire a bounty hunter to send padme (the queen) into hiding, then they proceed with the invasion while she’s on tatooine. Maybe this would add some tension throughout the story of anakin and padme, giving the sense that they’re in real danger.
