My Star Wars Saga Episodes 1-6 Edits (2/6 available) (WIP)
Time

I really like a lot of your ideas but I have some ideas that I think would make them even better. I think you maybe could somehow imply that Owen knew Anakin more than once considering how Owen is thrown into AOTC as an afterthought even though in ANH it is implied that he knew Anakin and Obi Wan a lot more. I’m not sure how to fix that but there must be some way.

Another interesting idea is flashing back to important scenes in TPM in AOTC like Darthrush did with his edit. Then you could have AOTC the first movie and then make a fanedit of TCW tv show as the middle movie.

With ANH I would suggest removing a lot of Motti’s comments about the jedi because he would have been around when the Jedi were in their prime. Also maybe have Luke say “You fought in The Clone WAR” instead of WarS since there was only one or you could change it to “The DROID War” because the droids were on the defeated side and wars are usually named after the side that was defeated.

You could also remove Leia being Lukes sister entirely like the radical re edit of ROTJ. It would not be hard to cut from Padme saying “Oh Luke” in ROTS to her dying skipping Leia. You could also get rid of the line “from a certain point of view” (god I hate that line). You could include the Boba subplot from the ROTJ radical re edit as well instead of him going out like a little bitch.

Good work so far tho

I’ve spent the last couple months pondering this “Ultimate Star Wars Saga” of mine, trying to figure out how I’d go about it. Do I want it to be a trilogy of trilogies, a series with an indeterminate number of seasons, or a single film? How faithful do I want to remain to Lucas’ PT, or Legends, or my own previous rewrites? How many elements do I want to take from earlier SW film drafts? Do I want it to be a conservative rewrite, an extensive rewrite, or a little of both? Do I even really want to rewrite the entire saga? Maybe I really just want to pare it down to the PT, or the OT.

After considerable thought, I’ve reached some final conclusions. The Ultimate Star Wars Saga would consist of twelve episodes, forming four trilogies spanning four generations of the Skywalker family. The first trilogy, the “Pre-Clone Wars Trilogy”, would be a rewrite of my previous PT rewrite, tailored to make Obi-Wan & Anakin peers, Anakin & Vader completely separate characters, etc. The second trilogy would be a PT rewrite proper, aligning more closely with Lucas’ films. The third trilogy would be an OT rewrite. The fourth trilogy would be the ST rewrite, incorporating elements from Disney’s films, the Dark Empire trilogy, Dark Forces II, and possibly also the Thrawn trilogy.

Fickle sumbitch that I am, I don’t think I’ll be going this route after all, as interesting a route it may be.

I keep reflecting on my incompleted PT rewrite. It was something of a hot mess, but I like the story I was crafting; I’d rather streamline/expand it into a TCW-esque series than work with Lucas’ table scraps.

Some concepts I have in mind for this prequel series:

  • Darth Vader & Anakin Skywalker are separate characters. Darth is the biological son of Shmi Warka & Chlorian Vader, adopted son/apprentice of Obi-Wan Kenobi & Siri Tachi. Anakin is a non-Force-sensitive farmer married to Amidala Skywalker; their daughter is Nashira Skywalker, Darth’s lover.
  • Tatooine was a prosperous frontier world until the Clone Wars.
  • The Clone Wars were instigated by Mandalorian clone warriors, descendants of Mandalorians who fled to the Rishi Maze during the Mandalorian Wars and conquered the native Kaminoans.
  • Yoda & Qui-Gon Jinn are among the “Lost Twenty”, heterodox Jedi who left the order due to disillusionment with the Order. Yoda went into self-imposed exile on Dagobah while Qui-Gon established the Potentium.
  • Asajj Ventress is Qui-Gon’s foremost apprentice and second-in-command.
  • Jedi wield blue lightsabers, Potentiates violet lightsabers. Only Darth has a unique lightsaber colour (yellow).
  • Darth loses his right arm/legs in his penultimate duel with Obi-Wan, but otherwise remains unharmed. Further injuries/bionic enhancements will accumulate over the course of the Jedi Purge.
  • Adopting the alias “Owen Lars”, Obi-Wan takes baby Luke into hiding with him on Tatooine, where he eventually meets/marries Beru Whitesun.

Are you still rewriting the OT after?
So Lukes father won’t be Anakin in this version?

So your PT trilogy that sticks to what Lucas wanted,does it feature Vader as the main young protagonist? I assume so if Anakin is Obi Wan’s peer.

Yep. Anakin becomes the Dooku figure (who isn’t Palpatine’s apprentice).

Also what will you change about the OT besides the obvious (Leia being Lukes sister,the dumb Ewoks and Han living even though him dying would make more thematic sense etc). I remember you toying with the idea of getting rid of Owen and Beru and having Obi Wan raise Luke under the alias of Ben Lars which I thought made a lot of sense.

Right about Owen/Beru. Other major differences would be a single Death Star, ANH & TESB taking place nearly back-to-back, and Luke joining Vader at the end of TESB. I’m no longer sure if Han would die in my story. Neither Vader nor Luke get a happy ending in my version of ROTJ; adding Han’s death to the mix would push it too far into grimdark territory.

Just remember that everyone is rooting for you. I know its hard to finish a rewrite but everyone here is looking forward to it so I hope that keeps you going. Best of luck!!!
PS: Will your sequels include The Vong? They are always sadly forgotten in sequel rewrites

How I would do my Fan Edits (more realistic edition)
First of all skip TPM it adds almost nothing to the story. Start with AOTC and have a few TPM flashbacks like Darth Zounds edit. The base of this AOTC edit would be AOTC Sanded Down and Alaskan Sandmans Prequels Revisited. One ambitious thing I would add is when there is the flasback of the TPM scene where Anakin leaves home change the background to the Lars homestead and in the far back Rotoscope in Own and Clieg silently watching not saying anything and right beside Qui Gon Rotoscope Obi Wan standing beside him. The rest of the scene plays out the same. Ambitious yes but not impossible if Sheepish and Alaskan Sandman can do it to Dooku in their edits so could I. Then when Anakin goes back for his mother tweak the dialouge a little and your golden.
Then for an Ep 2 I would just edit TCW (2003) into a movie
For ROTS I would then once again use Alaskan Sandman but also The New Cannon Cut and Hal9000s Kashykk scenes and also I would have Padme die and only give birth to Luke,it would be easy to cut out the twins entirely.Also dub General Grievous.
Then for a New Hope I would use Adywan and Fixitinposts new Obi Wan/Vader duel. I would also change some dialogue between Obi Wan and Luke to fix continuity errors as well as make Luke say “You fought in the Droid Wars” instead of Clones because Wars are usually named by the victorious power and the enemy they fought
Empire Strikes back would be Adywans and the only change I would make is no “There is another line” because there is no sister twist in my edits because I hate it so much
For ROTJ I would use Adywan as well as Ziggy and Darth Rush and cut out everything about Leia being Lukes sister. I would also make The Second Death star a dyson sphere around Endor’s Sun through some extra special effects and tweaked dialouge such as it not being named the death star 2. That would be it pretty much

I am in full works still, Sorry for the long delays!

I will not scrap my original film structure! It works surprisingly well, and having tried to go back to its original TPM form just felt… well, boring to be honest. The original film is just poorly paced and the main character is not at all obvious anymore (Qui-Gon).

Wait will you do the other PT movies or just this one?

I have no idea if I will tackle them, though I do have ideas for EP II. Focusing more on the loss of Qui-Gon is one of them. The other is that the Kaminoians (rly don’t remember their names) do speak a foreign alien language as to make them more menacing as well as the plot more engaging. This way I can also better connect Dooku into the story. Coruscant would look less CGI and have less intense imagery.

Perhaps it would be an option for you to work together with The AlaskanSandman:?

Is that project still going? Hasn’t been updated in 2 months or so. Also Anjohan if you ever do AOTC how will you handle Owen? Also what ep 2 and 3 edits by others jell well with your TPM edit?

Help Wanted: for an OT Fan Edit... Help!
Time

I have the idea that the Battle Droids will be mentioned to have Cloned human brain matter integrated into their heads for extra intelligence or something like that if I want to get rid of Republic Clones entirely somehow.

I could edit the OT to say Droid instead of Clone Wars if I can’t find a work around for the Clones in the PT,a lot less work

I would also get rid of Leia being Lukes sister because of the plot holes that reveal gave us. It would be easy to cut out. Obi Wan could say “That boy is our last hope” and Yoda could say "Trust in the will of the force we must) instead of “There is another”. As for Luke going apeshit on Vader I could edit it to have Han die somehow in the battle and Luke feeling it in the force before Dubbing Vader to taunt Luke about his friends death or just cut to Han and Leia in danger with Vader taunting about that.

Something I also need help with is how do I make it seem like Owen and Anakin have met before or even Obi Wan to fix some plot holes. Maybe somehow you could make Own Obi Wans brother which was the original idea in the ROTJ novelization and cut out all the scenes with them in AOTC and have Anakin cut from Watto to The Sand people(have Padmes ship parked in the empty desert) and cut some lines from Ep4 about "he wanted your father to stay here and not get involved,hell maybe make Anakin not grow up on Tatooine in TPM and have it be another desert planet/change digitally the terrain a bit)

Also how do you make the Ewoks scarier? Digital alterations/voice alterations?

The Star Wars 12 Movie Saga Project (Need feedback desperately)

Sounds like an interesting idea. Certainly bold, if you ever plan to go through with it. If that is the case, I would suggest to show bits, like the Kenobi brothers adventures and the Jedi Civil War, in flashbacks. That way it would cut down at least a little bit of the workload by combining certain story elements. Another way I think could help (and this is only if you really want to differ in style from the actual movies) is to have Lara and intertwine her story with Luke’s, e.g. you could have your OT be about the twins on parallel journeys that eventually lead up to the two meeting or you could have Lara start out as a minor character in the beginning before she joins the main cast. Of course, that could get rid of the the whole time-dilation planet.

For the prequels, it might be alright as is. It is like we talked about in another of your threads, where Obi-Wan is frozen and released by Anakin. Very interested to see how that would go, but I personally am not sure about Obi-Wan being directly involved in overthrowing the Republic to establish a Jedi theocracy (that’s more based on my presumption that Obi-Wan would have a different mentality he had from the High Republic than the “current” ideology of his fellow Jedi). You could still go for it, but maybe Obi-Wan’s reluctantly going along with it and/or he wishes to join to sway the other Jedi’s minds (or some other hullabaloo).

For the OT, Lara’s the only major change I recommended. Other than that, I can’t think of anything else. If you want to, maybe hint at the emperor surviving in spirit form or something akin to it.

For the epilogue stories, what you plan feels like a HUGE stretch, but it might work with the right tweaks and revisions. If you want to keep Lara there, maybe you can keep the time dilation planet or use carbonite instead. Luke’s ghost could guide Lara into rescuing the few who survived and taking them to Earth, which could be more hinted at than directly shown (so to keep the mystery).

That’s all I have. I dunno if it’s any good, but I hope it helps. Take care.

Thank you for your feedback!
I’m going to just post summuries not full blown scripts so the workload shouldn’t be that much
Having Lara in The OT is interesting and maybe I could use that.
The parralell stories thing with Luke I definitely plan with Mara Jade
As for Obi Wan wanting to overthrow the Republic I was going to have him reluctantly go along with the plan only because of the danger of Sidious
Also what do you think about my clone body Idea?

The Star Wars 12 Movie Saga Project (Need feedback desperately)
Time

I have always had a fascination with rewriting the prequels ever since I saw The Red Letter Media Review and Belated Media/Banditincorporated’s rewrites. However my amount of ideas has just kept growing and conflicting with each other. My ideas on how to rewrite ROTJ also threw a spanner in the works as well.I can’t fit all my ideas into 3 movies or in ROTJ’s case 1 movie.

Instead I hit upon the idea of making both The Prequel and Original trilogy 4 movies. However then I saw this post https://www.reddit.com/r/fixingmovies/comments/iostn9/george_lucass_original_12part_star_wars_plan/

and realized the potential of having two films at the beginning of the saga and two at the end that act as a Prologue featuring Obi Wan and a Coda featuring Luke’s twin sister Lara to the main two trilogies(now Tetrologies of course) that both have a massive timeskip of 1,000 years each (I’ll explain how in a moment).

Here are the names of the movies

Prologue:

Episode 1 The Jedi Apprentice

Episode 2 Crisis on Mandalore

Prequel Movies:

Episode 3 Disturbance in The Force

Episode 4 The Clone Wars

Episode 5 Edge of Darkness

Episode 6 Revenge of the Sith

Original’s:

Episode 7 A New Hope:Nothing Changed

Episode 8 The Empire Strikes Back:Nothing Changed

Episode 9 Sins of the Father

Episode 10 Wrath of the Emperor

Epilogue:

Episode 11 Will of the Force

Episode 12 A New Era

Obi Wan’s story will take place in The High Republic 1,000 years before the main movies. It deals with The First Clone War (The First Clone War featured Battle Droids with Cloned Brain matter) ,his adventures with his brother Ben and both their rivalries with Maul a young Sith Apprentice. It also features Ben’s love interest a princess of Utapau named Jeele. It ends with Obi Wan getting frozen in carbonite due to a series of events in a Jedi Civil War set into motion by The Kenobi Brothers over the rules of non attachment while Maul gets stuck in a different dimension of torment. Ben and Jeele both die of course

The Prequel Movies take place around 40 years before ANH in the closing days of The 6th Clone War (Sparrti Cylinder Clones this time)with a very diminished Jedi Order (same as u/sigmaecho rewrites) and other force wielding splinter groups. Things are set into motion with Anakin and his Brother in law Owen working on a Spice Freighter/Ship Scavenger when they find Obi Wan and get embroiled in the Clone Wars because of it. A lot of things happen such as Maul’s return,Mara Jades mother and Obi Wan, a fellow Jedi pupil named Zara, a roguish amphibious alien named Sol’kar who sounds and has a personality like this hilarious redubbing of Jar Jar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58yrGVFDHc8 (before you howl in outrage just watch the video) he does look different from Jar Jar of course ,Bail Organa’s as a general and Dooku’s (Dooku is around Anakins age and a pupil of Yoda) Knights of Balance( an order of Grey Jedi kind of like Jorrus from The Thrawn Trilogy)

However The main twist is of how Anakin became Darth Vader. This might be very unorthodox but I wan’t to do some unusual things with this rewrite along with some things very similar to what we got. In this Clone War many Jedi have been cloned and are used as shock troops and Anakin has been one of the ones Cloned. Eventually he fights singlehandedly 12 of his Clones who are dressed exactly like him (they are used for infiltration) but we don’t get to see the outcome except a badly wounded Anakin being found alive.

He makes a full recovery physically but mentally is slightly more unhinged. He has children with his wife but at the same time Obi Wan and Mace are planning to coup the Republic and turn it into a Jedi theocracy because they think the Chancellor is a Sith. Anakin becomes disillusioned with The Jedi order that has an elitist attitude towards the common man and an aloof attitude towards the war. Anakin kills Mace during the coup and falls to the dark side when Palpatine reveals himself to Anakin.

He tells him the truth. Anakin was killed during his duel with his clones but his spirit instead of leaving for the netherworld latched on to his surviving clone (clones are soulless btw) without realizing it. His spirit is now torn between his body and the netherworld. He has fulfilled a Sith Prophecy about a messaih called Darth Vader who will destroy The Jedi after his spirit miraculously switched bodies fter his death. Distraught and with nowhere else to turn Anakin joins Palpatine.

That’s all I can say about The Prequels right now

For the originals I’m being less radical and drawing more from Timothy Zahn and also The Dark Empire Comics. The first two movies are the exact same while the third and fourth are different. The Third especially is very different with Vader rebelling against The Emperor,Luke being captured by The Emperor and his struggle against the dark side, Mara Jade being Obi Wan’s daughter. The Fourth is more like ROTJ with Wookies,a Han who dies and all that jazz.

The last two movies (Coda)I don’t have concrete ideas for. The protagonist will probably be Luke’s sister who was split up by Yoda to a mysterious planet where time flows differently. (I can’t think of why though) It would be 1000 years after the Originals but the main villain could be anything from the Vong,The Whills or The ghost of Palpatine/Palagious. I’m toying with the idea that this conflict completely destroys the galaxy,scattering the species with The Humans led by Luke’s sister coming to Earth beginning human civilization as we know it with the events of the movies being chronicled in “The Journal of the Whills” before being locked away underground (The implication being that the filmmakers found the book in our time). But that’s probably a retarded Idea

Things I would like that are technically possible but would be a bitch to pull of

Making the Droids Clones and Clones regular soldiers. Maybe have the suggestion that The Droids have Cloned Brain matter of something? Deepfake all the Clone faces or even Deepfake the droids?

Make kid Anakin look Padmes age. Voice pitch lower, Deepfake face, make him look taller through shot selection or increase his size somehow with rotoscoping?

Have Owen be Anakin’s older brother. Deepfake someone for a few brief scenes, get other movies Joel Edgerton starred in and rotoscope him? Dubb him in ATOTC?

Make Grievous and Maul the same person. Dub Grievous but then also add a more climactic showdown between him and Obi Wan instead of just Obi Wan lamely shooting him through animation?

Add Dooku into TPM and set him up as either the bad guy or a rouge Jedi destroying the republic because the Sith have infiltrated it?

Making Naboo Alderaan and making Padme a relative of Bail

Take out C-3p0

Having The Ewoks in ROTJ look completely different or be Wookies through Deepfakes

Have The Second Death Star be some new superweapon

Redubb the whole Obi Wan-Luke conversation (no more "from a certain point of view"bs)

Have Han,Chewie and Lando Die (reediting? Not sure where we would get Leia’s reaction shot)

Have Luke walk off into the sunset (maybe Mandalorean footage?)

Crazy Prequel Idea

Maybe we could then rewrite the prequels to have mostly the same plot, just set 100 or 200 years before the original movies. Palpatine would be middle-aged, explaining his OT appearance with extreme old age rather than Force lightning. In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin wouldn’t be scarred by lava, and his state in the OT would be explained by him artificially prolonging his life using machinery. After the fall of the Jedi and the rise of Palpatine, Obi-Wan would cryo-freeze himself and Anakin’s children until about 20 years before the OT, when the time would be ripe for the Jedi to rise again.

It could work, except I personally would not cryo-freeze the kids. I think this is more of a nitpick than anything, but I always found it weird about cryo-freezing the kids (even when they’re in the womb, as seen in a draft of DuracellEnergizer’s Episode 3 rewrites). I guess it can be traced back to me wanting the kids to born in their natural period (as in, 20 BBY or 19 BBY) and grow up from thereon. That or I just prefer my discarded PT rewrite’s ending too much (basically, Anakin has accepted the Dark Side and flies off with a hesitant and non-pregnant Padme, leaving Obi-Wan with the Skywalker saber).

I don’t see what the problem with freezing the children is. There’s no reason why it wouldn’t be possible, and it’s the only way that the Jedi could be destroyed hundreds of years ago while still having Vader hunt them down. It’s pretty much a win-win idea in my opinion.

The problem with that idea is of course Owen,Beru and Bail Organa unfortunately

Any way to make TPM Anakin appear older?
Time

Any TPM edit runs into the problem of young Anakin and the absurdities of his abilities/disconnect with the next two movies. I have heard about lowering the pitch of his voice but another idea would be to make him digitally slightly taller+ a deepfake that ages his face a bit. The main goal would be to get him to TPM Padmes age. Is this possible and if so what fan edits are working on it?

Revenge of the Sith (The New Canon Cut) [DRAFT AVAILABLE]

NFBisms said:

^Yeah, with that rough test, I was trying to balance my preferences/wishlist of the scene with some suggestions I’d gotten. After learning how to better get rid of the traces of the other audio channels in the center channel, I just went ham on “things I’ve always wanted to see.” But my ideal just isn’t that possible with the material at hand - short of VFX-skills I don’t have just to subtly tweak a mouth or facial expression.

Basically, the little nag I have about that scene in the edit - ever since RogueLeader first brought it up a few months ago - is that Padme’s “turn” against Anakin feels super sudden without his authoritarian motivations or youngling murder. With the material we have, one of the two characters would have to suffer for the scene to fully play smoothly. Sacrifice either Padme’s agency or sympathy for Anakin. As it is, I’m having my cake and eating it too.

In that newer radical test edit, I was going for Padme and Obi-Wan reach out to save Anakin together (Obi-Wan keeping his distance), but then once Padme realizes what Anakin wants to do, decides that she wants him dead instead. While that’s inferred in the current workprint anyway, these edits were meant to make that more explicit and Padme’s turn more smooth - all while trying to maintain Anakin’s integrity as a non-psychotic authoritarian. A balancing act that didn’t pay off but I think has some value as it shows how the theatrical lines can be rearranged.


Anyway, I had a whole post typed up in response to people’s feedback (of two different workprints at this point because I’m an animal with no export control) but my power went out and now those posts are all gone.

What you did was amazing by making Anakin choking Padme more believable. It might be a little sudden for Padme but I think it works because it seems like the kind of thing said when someone is overwealmed and under pressure while Anakin’s reaction is believable since he’s on edge as well. These 2 moments are split second rash decisions with dire consequences just like what happens a lot in real life. Always keep this change
