THE STAR WARS PREQUEL TRILOGY: WATCHABLE EDITION--SUGGESTIONS WELCOME
Time

Ok. You’re Jar Jar Binks. I’ll make a constructed language called Gungen. Sample line: Meesa ko’wa fwesey gat barg (ENGLISH: I always repay a debt).
Words so far:
Swelet-Hello/Goodbye
Naw-No
Jey-Yes
Barg-Debt
Wheen-Look
Rak-Senator
Ko’wa-Always
Meesa-I
Fwesey-Repay
Sey-Pay

I’m gonna be honest with you, as someone who used to make constructed languages and was part of a conlang community, that’s already not looking very good, but it’s no worse than Huttese so it’s not like it would stick out.

Has anyone attempted to put Holdo in The Force Awakens so that her character doesn't feel shoehorned into The Last Jedi?

If Holdo has been Ackbar it wouldn’t have really worked. The whole point of Holdo is to be someone we don’t know and don’t trust, much like Poe, someone without an established relationship with the audience.

Interesting point, but I’d argue that suits Ackbar’s character perfectly.

From the films we don’t know much about Ackbar. He’s a talented strategist. But the moment the rebels realize the shields are still on, Ackbar immediately says “retreat”. It’s Lando who encourages them to keep fighting. Even the trap line signifies he doesn’t like to have the odds stacked against while on the offensive.

In fact, when we think of Ackbar we immediately go to the Battle of Endor. Like Poe immediately jumping to Holdo’s victory. Poe/audience has high expectations to see the leader in a commanding role, but is disappointed by their retreating. This lines up perfectly for Ackbar, who we all think is cool but know little about.

I imagine people would just hate on TLJ anyway with the claim “they ruined Ackbar”, but personally I think he’d be a better choice.

You can’t really emote or act much in that puppet, though, that’s why he and other Mon Calamari are relegated to background roles.

Someone asked about cutting down some Mustafar stuff.
I tried this, to remove the over the top fight parts from Obi Wan and Anakin’s duel. Just some different cut and a music track in the end. It doesn’t feel like SW, but I like it.
Of course it’s just a rough edit…

It feels like SW and it is fantastic!! My only gripe is that the music covers the voices at the tail end of the Anakin duel.

I don’t mind the music that much, although it’s very not Star Wars, as others have pointed out. It’s better than the original fight IMO, but I was hoping there was a way to do it without reinserting the Yoda v Sidious fight.

It’s probably not possible to do it that way, though.

Maybe we could entirely cut that by showing Yoda on the asteroid meditating. With some montage it could look like he is mentally watching Obi wan and Anakin’s duel.

I actually like that idea. I might try that out.

Frankly, I’d prefer to go the Hal 9000 route and not have Yoda ever confront the Emperor at all, but that’s me.

100% agree, they shouldn’t fight.

He’s gonna be remembered as one of the greatest fan editors because of what he’s doing to TLJ.

I don’t know about that one chief

To what degree do we have control over him? We can politely suggest for him to cut it out, and we can remove his post from this forum, but what else can we really do?

It’s in all of our collective best interest for him to stop, but I don’t think we can do anything beyond just asking him and explaining why it can damage the fanediting community.
