The Mandalorian Episode I: The whole season as a classical Star Wars movie
Time

Super excited for this! Cutting out the beginning with the comedic Mythrol bounty was a good move, though I will miss the great door kill. I’ve seen a few edits of the show already, but a lot of them didn’t cut enough.

Thank you for making an “Episode 7” version also!
That’s exactly how I wanted to imagine it lol.

The Mandalorian : Radical Redux Fan Edit Ideas - <strong>SPOILER THREAD</strong>
Time

lorang said:

Well just finished my take on the recent Mandalorian TV series, to condense the 8 part show into a standalone movie that runs 2hrs 38mins so I’ve roughly cut 2hrs 34mins from the total run time.

That mainly consisted of filler episodes 4,5and 6 but I had to make use of snippets from some of these to create filler sequences to maintain the flow of the episodes such as the introduction of Cara Dune character who was introduced in episode 4 but wasn’t central to the plot until episode 7.

Now I have created 100’s of cuts here way too many to list including isolating the sound track elements so I have 6 isolated scores to enable me to have either special effects removed or back ground music to enable me to blend some scenes together or play around with characters talking then using the official soundtrack score and placing music back in for dramatic effect.

I also had to use separate blaster or back ground special effect sounds such as steam and levers and so on to fill blank sounds that had been removed so had to create these from scratch.

Now the run time of 2hrs 38 could have been reduced to near 2hrs but I do like episode 2 and the Jawa’s episode so left this in for the most part, just a personal choice but any fan editors out there may want to remove this section to reduce the length down.

Episode 1 has a few trims, episode 2 has trims and wipes added, episode 3 had quite a few trims, wipes and isolated scenes for sound and redubbed and new music added and some extra snips from 5 & 6, episode 4 heavy cuts to remove all the story from the episode and scenes relevant to that story with just Cara Dune introduction added and ended were she says she was here first and Mando says this planet is taken, I then use alternate takes from the other episodes of him leaving the planet with new soundtrack added and sound elements added into the background.

We then pick up in episode 7 removing 5&6, minor trims here to several scenes that dragged the pace down, and episode 8 had to have numerous scenes cut, music rescored, dubbed and scenes rearranged as well as some new wipes added.

The show runs along quite nice now as a standalone

Damn I’d love to check out your edit. Been waiting for someone to attempt an edit since chapter 8 came out. Too bad that site is locked to new sign ups.

NeverarGreat, the new scene is great!

I don’t know how you pulled it off, but just the addition of the voices during Rey learning the Jedi mind trick makes it way more tolerable to me.

Her learning that so quick without even knowing of the technique or having any training what-so-ever, was one of the biggest scenes that pulled me completely out of the movie.

I didn’t think anything could save that scene for me.
Bravo, good sir!

Gee, thanks y’all.

I’m not getting anything done right now on account of every waking moment being taken up with either work or moving into a permanent residence (yay homeownership!), but by the end of the month this move will be done and the edit will continue!

Thanks for the update! Congrats on the house and good luck with the move.

THE LAST JEDI (REMANIED) - « NEVER SEEN BEFORE » CUT with NEW VFX

ChainsawAsh said:

Because it’s a shit-ton of work for something that really doesn’t matter or change the movie either way…?

To each their own. I found it distracting, so I wouldn’t mind seeing it changed. There’s already so many edits for the film, I wouldn’t mind seeing more minimal aesthetic changes such as that.

I’m interested in seeing a new take on this. For me, the Clean Cut was the ideal supplement to the original (unbiased opinion… lol) but there are definitely some alternate ideas bouncing around that I would love to see… Holdo’s hair being changed to brown is one and Kylo training is another… I was recently sent an AWESOME clip of Kylo ‘finishing his training’ and I’ve yet to see anyone implement this idea into an edit:

so good! I’d love to see guys give this a shot

Holdo’s hair being changed would be essential to the perfect edit of the movie lol. I’m surprised I haven’t seen anyone fully go all in on doing it for a full edit.

“clueless” is an understatement…

holy Hell.

Almost every comment is like this lol. It’s truly baffling.

snooker said:

Who could have guessed that the guy who made countless videos on why Brie Larson, Disney, and Kathy Kennedy are the devil made a bad edit.

I mean I would agree that those three things are terrible lol. But maybe he should have spend more time actually WORKING on the thing that is bringing him his “fame”. Almost everything in the edit is stuff we already saw him make videos on over the last year. I’m curious as to what he’s even been working on this whole time leading up to release.

He obviously just wanted to drag it on, so that he could rack up more Youtube revenue and Patreon donations.

Just from looking at the comments on Youtube, I can tell that almost every one of them thinks that Topher Grace is the only one to ever edit the prequel trilogy.

These people are absolutely clueless to there being any sort of fan-editing community. Probably for the best though. Too much attention would only bring a shut down from Disney.

I got the same vibe reading the comments… it’s the ONLY explanation for them thinking this guy’s edit is like the second coming. really crazy…they feel like he’s doing God’s work… like people thanking him for all he has done… lol nuts.

Almost every edit he did, I’ve seen done way better here. The only thing I think his edit has going for it, is the Ackbar scene. But even then it is pretty sloppy.

Been working the past few days on the Starkiller Firing scene, including shuffling the sequence and timing of a few shots, changing the firing shot so that the strong sunlight is no longer visible, and finally adding a new establishing shot to better transition from Rey/Kylo to the Starkiller cue.

Vader vs. Kenobi Reimagined [A New Hope / &quot;Scene 38 Reimagined&quot;] – Release
Time

I think some of it could easily fit into A New Hope. Definitely not all of it, but could easily cherry-pick a few shots to extend/spice up the fight. Would love to see some people at least attempt it.

JEDIT: Everything from 1:12-2:43 and 4:54-5:14 are just fine. They need some touch up here and there though.
