Nicely done! I can’t say it’s a necessary change that should be implemented…although…hmmm…I do think more fan edits should do things like this…even if a scene plays out pretty much the same way, I feel like you’re watching it more intently thinking “wait, what’s different?”. It kind of makes one sit up and pay attention, ya know?

Exactly this. It’s not significant, but it’s an artistic touch that gives the fanedit its own identity. It would make you feel like you’re watching so and so’s fanedit of the Phantom Menace, not just weird Phantom Menace.

Luke projecting in TLJ had a lot more importance than Yoda projecting in the prequels would. It has consequences, for example Luke can’t be killed by Kylo Ren because he’s not really there. Yoda projecting would just be an unimportant detail since it doesn’t have any tangible effect, and would probably undermine Luke’s projection in TLJ.

Don’t let me get in the way of anything, but I think projection Yoda is a bad idea.

Return of the Jedi 1997 Special Edition HD Reconstruction
Time

One thing I noticed was that you used the Theatrical “A long time ago” text, instead of the newer version that appeared in the Special Editions and prequels. However, upon further inspection of a '97 PAL DVD and '97 Laser Disc, for some reason the new text was only added to Empire and ANH, and Return of the Jedi still has the theatrical text, so your reconstruction is still accurate.

To make it seem like Anakin and Darth Vader are different people use the hologram between Vader and Palpatine from ESB but tweak it to have Vader told to kill Anakin.

That’s probably a good idea, but to have that in the movie and then not following it up would be really weird, and you couldn’t really follow up on that without undermining it.

I was thinking about putting text cards detailing which universe Endgame stuff takes place in. This is especially to help contradictory scenes that might be running close in time. Simultaneous contradictory scenes would be pretty easy to digest (such as the opening of GotG1 with the Morag scene from Endgame), but something like Loki escaping in Endgame will be just two scenes before he’s shown captured and sent to Asgard (from Avengers 1). What do you guys think? Also, how should the six different timelines be named, since I can’t seem to find any official names?

Perhaps we can exchange notes?

PM me if you’re interested, but it also sounds like our fanedits are pretty different.

You could name each timeline after the movie events that Endgame revisted.
I.e.
2012 - Loki timeline
2013 - Asgard timeline
2014 - Guardians timeline
and so forth.

Not a bad idea

Update time! The move has gone well, the new floor is not yet installed but most other things are unpacked including my workstation. So I’m back at it, still trying to nail down this ending sequence right now:

Zoo wee mama that’s pretty sexy. I like the concept, but also I just wanna say how much I love some of the details, too, like there being no iris before the credits, we just pan to the starfield.

I’ve actually been looking for something like that, because I’m not a Marvel expert. Thanks!

I do plan on showing the dates. My friend actually told me about Fury’s Big Week, although he wasn’t super specific (sorry if you’re reading this) and so I opted to put it in the order it’s in. There’s some other statement by the people who worked on the MCU I read back in 2015 or something that unless otherwise noted, the movies take place the year they come out. Obviously you can’t take that too seriously, Iron Man 2 and Thor are supposed to take place close together in time, they both came out in 2010 and 2011, yet Iron Man 2 takes place 6 months after 2008’s Iron Man 1. However, I tried following that rule where it made sense.

Me and my friends actually skipped Incredible Hulk while rewatching it, so I haven’t put it in yet.

doesn’t necessarily have any confirmed time placement

Yeah, I agree, and originally I put it in 2008, but again my friend convinced me. I’ll look at the video you recommended to see what they have to say.

Marvel Studios has put out these very short news videos on YouTube called “WHIH Newsfront” … Would you consider putting these in your chronological edit as a sort of buffer between the movies?

The one-shots, webisodes, and WHIH Newsfront are more likely to go in than the shows, but I’m not sure either way which I’ll decide. I’m thinking I might put them in, though, since they’re not that long and they spice it up.

“Gift” in German means “poison”.

“Mist” in German means “Manure”, which is why when a perfume company (whose name I forget) tried selling their new “Mist” perfume it didn’t sell so well in Germany.

SethBling technically has a tied world-record speedrun of Dragster. He played it on an Atari 2600 Emulator he made in minecraft, but that’s technically legal.
