I know I don’t contribute a lot, but your creative problem solving for this project is always a pleasure to read. I can’t wait to watch the final product
That works well. It doesn’t hit the return idea but I honestly don’t think it needs to.
Looking at some synonyms - for the Maul episode at least - Restoration or Retribution might work…? Can’t really think of anything that would
work for Geonosis though…
I don’t know if this is a consideration regarding Clone Cadets/Rookies/Arc Troopers (or even if it’s possible - I haven’t seen the individual episodes outside of Smudger’s movie edit in years) but… could it work as Arc Troopers being the main story with the most important elements and moments of the other two episodes scattered throughout as flashbacks? That way you find the best spot for the episode and don’t need to worry about where to place the others within your timeline.
While I’m not replying I am finding myself jumping into this thread multiple times a day because I am enjoying your thought process here. I think this is a great approach.
One question regarding to Geonosis arc - I really liked how Smudger interlaced the events with Anakin on the planet with Ahsoka and Barris on the ship. I think it was one of his most effective examples of making two episodes flow as one. Is that something you are considering here?
I also just finished it up. I was actually really impressed at how you were able to make the mudhorn scene fit. In terms of making sure this essential scene was there it was a clever way of doing it (in fact figuring out how to do that was half the reason I never bothered making my own edit of this).
Overall the narrative is solid. You hit all the key points and we get all the essential character development. It’s got me pretty pumped for season 2!
Would it be at all possible to get a link. Sounds like a great way to catch up on the big ideas before season 2!
This is looking fantastic. Sadly no matter how much editing people put into TROS, the only way to end with a genuinely great movie is by doing what you’re doing.
Now you had mentioned having the two halves of Luke’s lightsaber which would be amazing. The link below contains images of a fan made version of the split saber. I’m not technically minded when it comes to this but I feel like the plain backgrounds would make it fairly easy to place into the shots in question with a little work.
I just wish I had the know how to help.
Wow. I’ve only watched the first few minutes so far but this is brilliant. It almost makes me want to see the whole movie (and maybe even Episode II) done same way!
Palpatine is still integral to Rey’s past whether she is his grandkid or not, the point of the hooded figure is to at least imply a connection.
This exactly. In fact, if you go the Rey Nobody route but still have Palpatine have her parents killed, the fact that this cloaked figure appears would act as a hint to the hand he played in their fate.
I love that idea. It’s something I thought should have been the case all along. I hope you can pull it off
It is an odd scene. I actually tried something different when I put together my own personal edit of the movie (a kind of mash-up of various edits I like). I kept the scene, but tried to replace the “NOOOOO!” with some Qui-Gon’s dialogue from the Clone Wars episode ‘Voices.’
It’s the scene where Yoda is in bacta tank and you hear Qui-Gon saying “No… This is not the way.” I placed this over the obnoxious “NOOO!” but I was not at all talented enough to make it work. All I was capable of was reducing the main audio and trying to insert the Clone Wars line, but the background music was just wrong. Plus, the calling out of Anakin’s name was a little too dramatic for the line that followed. I ended up scrapping it and keeping the line as it was but decided on cutting the scene on Mace Windu’s face as the Imperial March is in the background.
But I still I have a weird feeling that with a decent editor it could work. You get some authentic Liam Neeson… you get Qui-Gon seemingly expressing his disappointment in the path that Anakin is taking…
