Can’t wait! Whenever they’re ready send them my way and I’ll happily check them out.
That’s pretty solid, here’s what I would tweak:
Phases 1-3 (stays the same)
Phase 4 - Aftermath
- Far From Home
- Falcon and Winter Soldier (these first 2 show a bit about the blip and the legacy of our 2 main heroes in the infinity saga)
- Daredevil S1 (introduces kingpin/Matt)
- Hawkeye (christmas!!!)
- GOTG Holiday Special (christmas!!!)
- Wakanda Forever
- GOTG Vol. 3
- Loki (ends on something relevant to the saga and is a prelude to the multiverse phases)
Phase 5 - Spiderverse (this one is my fav)
- Into the Spiderverse (introduces the multiverse in terms of Spider-Man really well)
- Spider-Man 1-3
- TASM 1-2
- No Way Home
Phase 6 - Multiversal Mutants
(This one is the same)
Phase 7 - Multiversal Collisions
- AMATW: Quantumania
- Loki S2
- Shang Chi
- Deadpool 3
This order keeps focus on the main MCU and allows for the best of the other universes, and skips the really bad stuff (Thor 4 👺) and the currently irrelevant stuff (moon knight, eternals, etc.) Phase 7 will probably change as new stuff is released and the multiverse threads continue.
EDIT: If I remember correctly Kingpin ends up in prison at the end of Daredevil so it may not make sense there. Ideally it would go in phase 3 but that would disturb the rule of 8s. You could take it out and move Shang chi up if it bothers you.
I think that would be pretty easy if someone was willing to edit, he basically gives a cutlist in the video for each of the movies. I think the biggest change would be redubbing Jarvis with Friday, but with ai voice cloning it should be achievable. If someone were to do this I would use the de-whedoned edit of AoU as a base, it was pretty seamless.
How’s AOTC going? I loved TPM, can’t wait for the others!
I would separate the Infinity and Multiverse saga with two six film mini sagas, Spider-Man and X-Men. Spider-Man saga would be the raimi trilogy, the two TASMs, and Venom. X-Men saga would go X-Men, X2, First Class, DOFP, Deadpool, Logan. I feel like watching these before the Multiverse saga pay off as we start to see these characters pop up, and this order gives you the basic X-Men story while skipping all the awful ones. And with them in between, you get a nice break from the main MCU universe.
Any new Rey Nobody ideas now that AI is a bit better? I’d love to see someone have another go at the Rey killed her parents idea.
I would keep the Marrok ghost blood partly because it foreshadows the zombie troopers and explains what he is, but also because it’s a cool homage to that scene in Sanjuro when the dude gets sliced up and squirts blood everywhere. I love all the Kurosawa references since Lucas was heavily inspired by it when he made ANH.
How’s the Rey Nobody version coming along? Will they both be updated simultaneously? Can’t wait!
I’d love a link whenever they’re ready!
Sounds amazing. Can’t wait!
We’d need the Dreadnaught vfx, starkiller vfx to remove the laser, and some ai lines to sell it, but I feel like it could be done.
I’m not an audio expert either but I’d be willing to attempt an edit if you have a spreadsheet for it.
Where would you put the NR attack in TFA? I think it would work well to have it where the attack is in restructured, and then you could say that the FO was using starkiller as a red herring to distract the resistance from the dreadnaught deploying. You wouldn’t be able to get the main characters immediate reactions but it could work.
Edit: You could also get a little meta with the ANH connections and have the rebels assume that the FO is building a new superlaser and rush to destroy it, which plays right into the FO’S plan to distract them.
For the crawls, I would use something along the lines of Hal’s crawl and just mask the title so you can put The Phantom Menace at the top. I think that’s what I did when I made my own personal edit a while back.
That would be interesting. If you were removing the superlaser I would go with the idea that the dreadnaught destroys the NR capital, which reframes the attack on it in TLJ as Poe wanting to get revenge for it. I think Snooker made a mock up of it and it looked great. Makes the FO seem like a much smaller group too.
On top of that making his robes dark like they were in the show would be cool assuming you only cut his head out to paste on Shaw.
It would be interesting to see a full saga edit that attempts to remove the sibling connection from every film. But, I do agree it would be cleaner to just remove the romance aspects of ANH and ESB. Are there any edits that do that for ANH? I don’t think I’ve ever come across one.
This is exactly what I’ve wanted to do with Andor ever since it was released. Would love to see it completed!
Try this one off his Twitter:
The one on the Gizmodo article seems to be pretty high quality still, you’d just have to remove the Episode VII and crop it a bit.
With all the Ahsoka content out would it be possible to take older Hayden and make a new ROTJ ghost with it?
Those look great! I can’t find the textless one in good quality but the one with text is a much higher resolution, may take some Photoshop to get the TFA one complete.
Yeah, I’d definitely rather keep the flashbacks intact and have the movie be slightly longer, they’re a core part of Ahsoka’s arc.
I like the way it is, keeps the cool gungan world and gets to Padme faster. I never minded removing it but I think this is better.
I thought it was really great, the edits were smooth and I didn’t really notice anything missing. The train and coloring really help the cgi to blend better too. Here are some things I would maybe change:
I think a new crawl with the preserved title would be a good change, the current one is bogged down by taxes and trade routes for two paragraphs instead of establishing the Galaxy.
I’d maybe remove the big boss nass blubber, the little one he does before it seems like enough
The midichlorian scene could probably be removed completely, I was kind of confused on what qui gon was doing to Anakin. Did he get burnt or something?
Personally I’d like to see the whole chosen one prophecy removed, I think the three trilogies mesh better without it. Not sure how you’d do it with qui gon and Yoda at the end though.
This may just be my speakers, but I felt like I had to turn the volume up for dialogue and down for the action heavy stuff. Maybe take a look at the mixing?
That’s all I can think of right now, I’ll go back through it and see if anything else sticks out. Can’t wait for AOTC.
