With the crossovers that’ll be happening on the upcoming Ahsoka, Rangers of the New Republic, and future Mandalorian episodes culminating in a “climactic story event”; there’s no doubt that the upcoming SW films will incorporate these crossovers from the shows into the films like the way the MCU will be doing now
If there was more dialogue to pull from Vader to make it work, I’d like that change. But it still sticks out unfortunately.
Even with the new series and they were able to get Earl Jones again, it be hard to imagine him saying “mother” … but there can be more syllables to pull from to make it. Who knows.
It doesn’t have to be Vader saying “mother”, just James Earl Jones. He’s said Mother !ucker in a movie or two, plus he read the bible for an audiobook. There are also a few great impersonators on YouTube. If Adywan decides to do it , he’ll have a few different options to try and make it work.
Adywan has said he’s already in touch with a Vader sound alike if he decides to make this change.
/\ In truth that speaks more to Shaw being miscast in the first place than it does to a 78 year old Prowse being right.
But my point remains that I think Prowse had a better face for Vader under the mask than Shaw did, and for what it’s worth I also think he had ‘a better right’ to be Vader, to be seen just once on the big screen without that mask on - but that’s a sentimental viewpoint and perhaps it has no place in the movie business.
If there was some way to put Prowse in that position in Revisited it would be cool, and the documentary reshoot footage might potentially provide that, but I understand the difficulties might be insurmountable…
So in TESB when you see the back of Vader’s head when the helmet is being lowered, who was that portraying him? Was that Prowse?
This was a movie I had scene a clip of on youtube. A man walks into a room full of a crowd of people who are all standing still while staring in awe with gaping mouths at someone playing a guitar off screen. That’s all I got.
This was probably a UK film.
I really wish the action at Jabba’s would have taken place on a lush, tropical rainforest type planet. That would have added new visual flair to the film & it seems like a place where slug-like creatures would thrive.
Also, the Sarlaac being the gaping maw of a huge, beautiful flower would be better than a hole in the sand.
100% this. The only thing a planet like that would need is a good name.
Still need any cash for this?
Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Are you still needing donation for this?
Yes, donations are still being accepted.
90% this. I just don’t agree with changing Endor to Kashyyyk
Is this finished? It says released in the title
Sky, great work. I applaud you for doing this. But just out of curiosity, what made you want to Lucasize the deleted scenes?
I don’t think the idea suits the ideas behind Ady’s edit, but I’d love to see it come to life someday.
I got to admit that the pacing in the beginning of the film never worked for me. It starts off with Vader arriving in the DSII, then it cuts to Tatooine at Jabba’s palace rescuing Han where they get captured and fight at the Sarlaac pit for about 30 minutes, then the core of the story gets back on track on Dagobah with the Yoda and Obi-Wan scenes.
I’m all for ray_afraid’s ROTJ opening edit idea
Did you refilm your arm for the scene when Obi-Wan cuts off Dr.Evazan’s arm off at the cantina?
- A New Hope
- The Empire Strikes Back
- The Last Jedi
- Rogue One
- Return of the Jedi
- The Force Awakens
- Revenge of the Sith
- The Rise of Skywalker
- The Phantom Menace
- Attack of the Clones
I bet the answer is “No, because putting that scene in ruins the pacing and the reveal-fanfare-music when Luke & Obi see the Falcon for the first time.”
I agree. And doing a scene with Boba Fett instead of Jabba would require a budget thats already being spent on ROTJ:R.
Will there be cover arts for when the Blu-rays for OT:R are released?
What was the name of the film that JJ Abrams saw Daisy Ridley in that made him say “Who’s that girl?” and cast her in TFA?
Which type of methods were used in coming up with the lightsaber duels depicted in the OT? European fencing? Asian swordfighting?
Adywan, in your full list of changes you’ve put:
“Have a small portion of the Ewok celebration which then leads to the funeral pyre scene. This is where the Force Ghosts will appear and the film will end with Luke being alone (which in turn foreshadows TFA).”
And I was just wondering where the stance is on that now. After TLJ/TROS, I know I’m not sure about how to feel when it comes to the sequel trilogy. I liked TFA, but it didn’t stand on its own and kind of hung on ANH/the promise of solid sequels but, given the disjointed nature of that trilogy… idk.
The real reason I ask is because, if that sort of open-ended ending was still part of you’re plan, then…
Spoilers for Rise of Skywalker
Could that new scene of Luke training Leia work as an alternative ending. It would still require trimming down the celebration and I’m not sure whether the pyre scene would work better where it is rn or just before the new scene, but I can imagine that scene fitting in there. I feel it would work well to act as a pay off to the whole “there is another” and give the whole siblings plot an actual conclusion, rather than just drama. It would also work for “haters” and fans of the Sequels alike, and would give credibility to certain controversial plot points that felt forced due to them having no setup.
Overall I believe it would add to the movie, and Star Wars saga, as (for some) the final movie in the saga, would end with Luke fulfilling his role of teaching the next generation of Jedi. The ‘Return Of The Jedi’.
Ending it on the pyre scene, with the ghosts added, was just an idea. The more i thought about it, the more i missed the celebration ( Yub-Nub, not the SE version with the ripped off native american/ new age music). The planet celebrations will still be erased ( why the hell are there thousands of people celebrating in mos eisley, a small spaceport?). The Empire isn’t fully defeated at this point and the celebrations are way too quick to happen. I’m going back to the pre-SE version of the ending ( with one or two changes, like the added wedge shots).
You could still end ROTJ:R with the funeral pyre scene by having the celebration happen before it just without Luke in it.
Does Vader fundamentally misunderstand what it means to be a Jedi?
Anakin Starkiller said:
The First Order and the Resistance work just fine if you change one small detail: they’re both funded by the Republic. Now it becomes a proxy war between two rival parties within the system. Snoke could be some rich senator.
The First Order shouldn’t be funded by the New Republic but instead should be viewed by them as terrorist-like.
The way people reconstruct or create their own continuity with the PT, how would you redo the ST?
First I would start by having the First Order to be a group of survivors from the Empire who believe in the dark side of the Force and by not having the Resistance but as a group of pilots from the New Republic.
The ST shows as if the Battle of Endor did nothing to stop the Empire that also seems as if they then went on to use a different name as the First Order.
If the Empire are like Nazis that rose to power then the ST should depict the First Order as a group of Neo-Nazis.
Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon shouldn’t be master/student as this contradicts what was stated in TESB but as friends or as two Jedi who work together with Yoda being the one who instructed Obi-Wan or both of them.
