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?
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.
