It’s kind of refreshing to watch the SE now and again. I do that every once in a while.
Why are there three versions of this same topic?
Notice that ANH and ESB never say who Anakin’s master was. They only say that Vader was Obi-Wan’s apprentice.
I mean, it’s kind of implied that if Vader is Anakin, and Obi-Wan taught Vader, Obi-Wan probably taught Anakin. So it’s not like they never say that in ESB.
It would be interesting if Yoda was Anakin’s master. In fact, in the Brackett draft of ESB, the Luke/Anakin lightsaber has the coordinates to Dagobah stored on it. This makes me think that Brackett intended for Yoda to be Anakin’s master. After Obi-Wan and Anakin complete their training, Obi-Wan, arrogant in his ability to be a master, trains Vader, and the rest is history. It would also be interesting if Yoda warned Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Vader not to get involved in the Clone Wars, but they ignore Yoda’s warning.
Definitely interesting. I’d love to see something like this fleshed out.
I have more or less the same problem with that part of ROTJ, but I think at that point in the trilogy you either accept the fairy-tale vocabulary or you just won’t learn to appreciate the original trilogy.
There’s only really bad fairy-tale vocabulary in RotJ.
Howdy! My name is Michael but my friends call me Olobby. I’m a huge star wars fan which is why i joined this website and I’m looking to a edit the Obi-Wan and Anakin vs Count Dooku scene from revenge of the sith but my editing skills are awful I heard you do requests can you help me out it would greatly be appreciated.
What sort of stuff do you want done to that?
As someone who artistically re-purposes old things into new things almost daily, I know what you’re getting at. But the “trash” has to have some value in it to redeem. The PT doesn’t have that.
Besides, like I said the PT is crap, not trash. And nobody’s turning poop into anything people wanna see. Frink has turned the poop into a joke, so there’s that. But turning poop into a good movie? Not possible.
You can add the purest and cleanest water to mud, but all you’ll get is more mud. You can also take the sicks and rocks out, but it’s still mud.
idk, I quite enjoy my newly completed fanedits of AotC and RotS, and I think I might like my version of TPM, as soon as they’re done. Definitely not as good as the OT, but still decent. And tons of people love HAL9000’s edits and l8wrtr’s edits. I guess your opinion is your opinion, though.
Anyway, why are you here if you hate prequel fanedits so much? You’re not gonna stop them from happening, so what’s the point?
There’s nothing good about the PT to bring out through a re-edit. They aren’t decent films hidden under a pile of crap. They are crap through and through.
idk, they’re enjoyable in my own personal fanedit. Not as enjoyable as the OT, but enjoyable.
This could be interesting, a collaborative fanedit. I’d love to help out but I can’t do much. But I’ll help out where I can.
Someone else should take up this project if the original creator can’t coming back.
I hope they don’t happen. It’s way too much Star Wars.
I think they honestly just thought it looked cool.
I know AoTC and ROTS have a hard time restoring the film versions of their theatrical release…
Not ROTS. The only difference between the theatrical and DVD is a cut vs. a wipe. The DVD version was shown in HD so it is available, and the BD has the proper wipe, so a reconstruction would be very simple.
Huh. I thought there were some dialogue changes in RotS like there apparently was in AotC. My mistake.
In the Blu Rays, yes. But not the DVDs.
Are there any preservation efforts for the Theatrical Versions of the Prequels, most importantly the Phantom Menace? I wouldn’t be surprised it there wasn’t, they’re not popular films and there aren’t nearly as many changes, let alone controversial ones. However, there are some changes, especially to the Phantom Menace, so there might be one out there, and there definitely will be one made in the future.
Does one exist? (this totally isn’t because i’m secretly in love with the old puppet yoda…)
It wasn’t ever released but I also don’t think it was abandoned, it’s hard to juggle these things with real life.
Jackpumpkinhead made a revisited version that more closely aligns with Adywan’s.
If you’re responding to me, that’s more of a Plan B, Adywan’s crawls aren’t quite right.
If not, I’m so sorry.
Can we answer with the prequels? They’re not Special Editions, but I can get the logic between pretty much every SE change. I don’t agree with the logic, but I at least get it. What I don’t get the logic behind is changing the order of a few shots at the end of AotC.

Thank you so much for this post!
Not gonna lie, this was very confusing. 😉
Sorry ); It felt weird not having an ending but I didn’t know what to say as one.
How was this done? Because I’m way too late into doing AotC and RotS to switch over to this, and (I know this is very naughty, but I don’t plan on releasing my fanedits so I guess is it OK?) I have bits of other people’s fanedits tucked in, especially in these latter two prequels. And obviously I have no idea what happened here or how to do it.
oh boy oh boy they let me make an account finally
Do you mind making some opening crawls for me, but in the style of the ones of the Original Trilogy? I tried making the crawls myself, but it ended up looking wrong. Here’s some snapshots showing what I mean. I’m not 100% sure what the difference is, but I think maybe the font is bolded or something, and the crawl might be coming in at a different angle. Please do not add in the Starfield, and additionally, please make the crawl way too slow, like 5 minutes long. I want to put the Starfields in myself, and I want to synchronise the crawls to the music cue. Leave out the subtitle and episode number, it’s not possible to sync it up to the music cue if the crawl has either of those things, without it looking stupid, at least.
The texts are here. There’s no A New Hope or the Empire Strikes Back crawls because I’m just using Harmy for ANH, and using Harmy but covering up the Episode Number and Subtitle for ESB. There’s no the Phantom Menace crawl because I plan on removing the crawl, treating TPM like the anthology it is.
Thank you so much for this post!
