Worst Edit Ideas

Goes to show how much of a lazy/cheap hack Lucas is. Luke screaming as he fell down the shaft could’ve worked if Lucas’ gotten Hamill in to record it, or someone with a relatively similar voice. But no, he reuses the Palpatine scream 'cause he couldn’t be bothered to put the extra ounce of effort into it.

Actually no, he’s a genius and this is secretly art. It’s symbolic of how Luke is Palpatine, which makes sense if you watch the Original Trilogy backwards, as it was always was meant to be.

Star Wars: A (formerly?) 3-in-1 fanedit of the Star Wars Trilogy
Time

This project’s essentially been dead for 2 years now but especially since Act on Instinct offered to do voice acting, I’ve been thinking about bringing it back.

As I’ve said before on this thread, though, the 3-in-1 movie isn’t something I think really worked. It ended up 4ish hours long, and I wasn’t satisfied with that. I thought NeverarGreat’s advice was good and I couldn’t really achieve that runtime.

I also felt unsatisfied that the movie would spend such a large time in Chapter 3 undoing what Chapter 2 did, which if you went and saw a movie that did that, you’d think it was sloppy writing. It works when Empire and Jedi are separate movies, but if it were one movie then it should have been written out in another draft. If I could somehow make it that Han died at the end of Chapter 2, maybe it could work?

However, the idea of there being only one Death Star was originally incidental to the edit, but it became my favorite aspect of it, so I thought about trying to make it work as like a 6-part miniseries. Six Episodes, two per movie. I ended up scrapping this too because I felt like the episode lengths were too all over the place, however after the longest Mandalorian Episode was 16 minutes longer than the shortest, it got me thinking that this could work.

Now, the difference between the longest and shortest episodes I had was over half an hour, but I could easily add more runtime to the shorter one and I’m sure I could cut 5 to 10 minutes out of the longer one, to get the difference down to 20ish minutes.

Anyway, the point of me saying all this was to gauge how people feel about this project. There was a little bit of interest in this back when I first posted this, would you guys still be interested in this without the 3-in-1 aspect or was the interest only in a 3-in-1 fanedit of the Original Trilogy?

Edit:

Another I could think of is editing it into two movies instead of one, which could work, but I’m not so sure of. I’d still want this fanedit to be of a more different format, though, because I’d rather not have it just be an alteration of each of the OT movies. I wouldn’t be able to justify the hard drive space to download that, in my opinion.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

RogueLeader said:

RJ said he created Rose because he felt Finn and Poe had the same voice, but imagine the Rose and Finn conversation about war, but Poe took Finn’s place and Finn took Rose’s place. Poe likes being the hero and does whatever he can to win, but considering Finn is a literal child soldier, he knows all about the costs of war.

Cosmonaut has a lot of really good takes, but I never agreed with this.

Rose is not talking to Finn about how bad war is. She’s talking about how war against the First Order is good, justified and necessary, and that Canto Bight is awful for supporting the First Order, not for supporting war.

OriginalTrilogy is a bunch of prequel haters who are so obsessed with hating them, they have to validate the DT to stick it to them while crying that their sons and daughters managed to find out about the existence of the prequels despite their efforts to hide them and having showed them Fanedit #28286 that retcons the existence of the PT, and worse of all, they liked the prequels, so they can only now hope they can brainwash their future grandchildren and that ROTJ Revisited can ramp up the foreshadowing for the DT, and ANH Revisited HD starts making deep retcons to erase the prequels from their headcanon yet again because “waaah they raped my childhood 20 years ago so bad i can’t even see a pixel of them ever again lest I get TRIGGERED”

They are the OK BOOMERS of Star Wars.

His comment section is hilarious.

Funny, but not “ha ha” funny.

More nervous chuckling.

I feel like I lose brain cells every time I even hear about these people, let alone interact with them.

but there is a certain wholeness of what is now the original 6 that is absent in the sequels, apart from Last Jedi.

I think you only think there’s a wholeness between the original Star Wars trilogy and the prequels because you grew up with the prequels just being part of Star Wars, they always were. Am I right in assuming that?

I did too, in fact I actually didn’t even know about episodes four through six until I was older, fun fact, but rewatching them as an adult I don’t feel like they fit together at all, there’s no wholeness and now as an adult, I have a really hard time convincing myself they’re in the same universe. I often think of there being two entirely different Star Wars franchises: The universe of the prequels and the universe of the OT (which also makes it super weird to me when they overlap but that’s not important). At least with the sequels, I can easily see them as part of the same universe, with the same characters.

I don’t feel like that contributed a whole lot to the thread and it’s just me being a dick but IMO that’s not something I agree needs to be done.

I’m not really interested in a trilogy redux as much as a standalone edit of TROS that fits better with the other two.

To get a coherent trilogy, you need a redux.

  • If you like TLJ style, you need to fix mainly FTA & TROS
  • If you like TFA/TROS (those fit well) you need to fix mainly TLJ

Frankly I don’t think TLJ contradicts TFA, it’s really only TLJ and TRoS that cause issues with each other. If yuou’re trying to maintain TLJ, you only really need to mess with TRoS.

I think I can articulate why exactly I’m not a fan of the idea of putting Palpatine in TLJ.

Generally if you are gonna set something up for the next movie in a series, the way you should do that is to set it up in the beginning of the movie, with all the other stuff you’re setting up for the movie itself, and just leave it unresolved in this one. For example, one of the ideas to incorporate Palpatine into TFA/TLJ that I prefer is having Snoke being a sort of middle man and promising Kylo the reward of meeting the “true power” back in TFA, as someone suggested. It would undermine Kylo killing Snoke, but it’s probably the best option if you want to go this route.

I don’t really like the idea going around here that when the Resistance is running through the radio, Palpatine’s broadcast comes through. That completely kills the pacing and distracts the audience from everything going on in the movie itself. At best the audience is going to be worrying about Palpatine’s broadcast, nothing else.

Putting in a post-credits scene of Palpatine’s return could work, but it wouldn’t solve the issue. Had they done it theatrically, this would show to people that it was the plan from the beginning, but a fanedit can’t do that and it wouldn’t story-wise solve the problem of Palpatine kind of coming out of nowhere, since the post-credits scenes on a movie kind of exist in their own story bubble. This is not a scene in Iron Man.

I think this is a fair question. If this is suppose to be an ultimate victory, then maybe. If you’re stressing that fascism and tyranny can rise when you least expect it and do-gooders have to remain vigilant, then maybe not.

I feel like the Last Jedi tried to make it the case where fascism and tyranny would rise up whenever you least expect it, but the Rise of Skywalker ditched that and was trying to say something along the lines of Palpatine or the Banite Sith were behind everything wrong in the galaxy. So… what to make of it?

The <strong>Original Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

My plan was to cut out the whole Battle of Yavin from ANH. After leaving the Death Star, they head to the Rebel Base: Hoth, but the Empire gets there too (since they’re being tracked and all), and they storm the base, and don’t wait for the Death Star to destroy the Rebels, they want to make double sure the Rebels are crushed and the destruction of Hoth would be more symbolic. I had the idea of moving the Trench Run fight to the Battle of Hoth, and having Gold Leader fail to destroy the Death Star, damaging it, but killing Tarkin. However, I never got around to implementing it.

In TROS, the gang refer to the wreckage of the Second Death star on the Endor moon as simply ‘The Death Star’, presumably to not complicate things. I think that adds to the list of good reasons, not least of which being that under the ST in particular we have way too many Death Stars, that we should consider having the DS2 just be a part-repaired DS1.

In ANH, I’d edit the explosion to make it look more like massive damage than full destruction, and in ROTJ, I’d remove references to it being another DS, and add references to it being simply under repair.

I was working on a 3-in-1 fanedit of the OT that just had one Death Star (and one rebel base on Hoth).The 3-in-1 part didn’t pan out in a way I was satisfied with, but I’ve been thinking about reviving the project and giving it another go, or maybe trying a different format like a 6-part series.

There being two Death Stars has always been something that bothered me though and this makes it extra relevant.

Which trailers accompanied the movies?
Time

In a Cinemark theater, there were wayyyy more trailers than you guys are mentioning. My girlfriend and her dad were joking about how many trailers there were, like double the normal amount. Although Barb & Star is the only one I remember that wasn’t mentioned. If I see it again with my dad or something, I’ll write down what trailers I saw.
