The interior of the Sentinel’s cockpit is similar to the Lambda’s anyway (unlike the Zeta), so he wouldn’t have to change anything there.

So does the exterior nose, which means some background replacement for the docking bay set instead of replacing every set piece.

I am, however, very much in favor of seeing a string of thousands of various cargo/construction crafts moving between the Death Star and the moon, which can include the Zeta-class; for there it makes sense and I hope we see it.

I was thinking of this too, but does the current dialog on the Star Destroyer allow for Tydirium to just be one of hundreds they’ve seen today? And would they all have to pass right over the Destroyer and “fly casual”?

It would be cool to see dozens of shuttles milling about the Death Star, but since the moon only contains the shield generator and this is operational, there shouldn’t be many craft traveling that way. So perhaps Tydirium is in a line of shuttles headed for the Death Star but breaks away for the moon, taking it across the path of the destroyer.

“Where is that shuttle going?” Could work!

That idea makes a good amount of sense. There should be ALOT of activity for building another death star quickly “out in the middle of no where.” I agree too that Vader’s line would fit nicely still without having to alter any dialogue.

I think people are forgetting that while the whole movie and the publicity for it was about the “Death Star Plans”, what they really end up stealing is the -star dust file- Galen left on scarif. My theory is he purposely misplaced the dish so emperials would think it was an outdated version and don’t look too much into it, and the weakness he placed is accurate. That’s what I think.

I get your thought process, but that would be inconsistent with the story. Galen explicitly said he hid the weakness in the death star plans, in such a way in seemed insignificant but would cause a chain reaction in the reactor. Star Dust is the code name for the Death Star Plans, just like the Manhattan Project was the code name for the A-bomb back in WWII.

With that all being said, the best way is to first leave the first image when we see the plans, that then flips to more of an accurate detailed plans. The first image again, could be the original logo/symbol for the death star as the “first” page.

Here’s doubleofive’s old list of wanted ROTJ changes if anyone wants to take a look.

https://web.archive.org/web/20140927233237/http://doubleofive.wordpress.com:80/rotj-fanedit-wishlist/

Wow… that is an exhaustive list! There are some really great ideas in there! I’m especially impressed with all of the continuity and effects suggestions. Some suggestions seem a bit on the impossible side, but the majority of the list is actionable. I thought that some (like having burning DS2 debris replace the fireworks) were downright inspired.

I don’t know the exact relationship between Ady and 005, but I’m assuming that Ady’s aware of all these requests and the don’t need repeating?

If Kyber is essential to Death Star building it would explain why they had to use something else to do the same job in episode 7.

“The strongest Stars have the hearts of Kyber.” So in a way, Starkiller based used a similar method of the Deathstars … Different yes, but there is that connection with Kyber in a way.

This one works for me. Nice editing NeverarGreat. Nothing you can do about the abrupt end, but it is ok since we don’t jump to Starkiller base or anywhere else that would make it very abrupt. It’s all at the base, going from the inside to the outside.

I think the reaction is fine, if not, fitting. The smile at the end is a good choice. It all works to me!

@Mala: The line was originally “Without the Republic fleet, we’re doomed”, but it was replaced with “This is a catastrophe” because the Resistance base is still supposed to be hidden at this point in the edit, and thus not a target for the weapon. One could make the argument (and I think I did) that 3PO’s statement could mean “Without the Republic fleet, we (the Resistance attack ships) are doomed”, but that might be confusing.

This version makes clear that the Resistance knows that the First Order is targeting the Republic, and also suggests that under other circumstances, the Resistance would have the backing of the entire Republic fleet. Since there’s so little mention of the Republic in the original film, I worry about taking out any more. ‘It’s the Republic! The First Order, they’ve done it’, and ‘Finn’s familiar with the weapon system that destroyed the Hosnian System, he worked on the base’ were always going to be gone, so these lines are an endangered species of sorts.

That’s looking really good, it’s nearly flawless I think.

It also begs to reason why Vader would even scream over his mechanical arm getting severed. Maybe there were nerves connected during Vader’s suit construction or something?

3PO feels pain when he’s banged around, burned, ect. And the droids in the stupid torture scene are all screaming in pain. If they feel is somehow, I’m sure Vader does too.

It’s a confused issue for sure. Luke’s prosthetic hand has synthetic nerve endings, but this is presented in contrast to Vader’s robotic suit, which is ‘more machine than man’. If he does indeed have feeling in his robotic limbs, it would humanize him.

It might seem “odd” that he would not react to having a body part chopped off like that to the audience. Also, as mentioned, we see that other machines/droids react to getting hit, cut, chopped, disintrigated … it would be consistent to keep it as is.

There is something satisfying with ending with Vader’s helmet being sealed and the breathing, I will give you that. It is a good ending note.

I would highly suggest using the alternate scenes that depicts Padme being alive with Leia … it should be consistent with Leia’s statement in Return of the Jedi.

Granted, story wise the idea of Padme’s death would be better … her death, Vader’s birth … But the Prequels should follow along the original’s stories/canon, not the other way around.

Rise of the Rebellion: A Rogue One Edit (Released)
Time

I realized there is one thing that I think deserve’s a fix, which is not a personal taste or anything, but the action sequence was altered between Krenick and Death trooper vs. Jyn and Cassian. It started with 2 death troopers but only one was shot and fell. I believe you took out the part where the first one was shot and fell flat on his stomach. By altering that scene, in a sense you erase one mid fight. I think that part should be restored … not out of personal taste but it appears to make it look like a edit mistake.

Other than that, I like what you did.

I just watched it and I liked it a lot. I originally enjoyed Rogue One very much and thought it was a great movie in theaters.

I like your decisions you made and was a bit reserved on the removing Cassians first scene. I thought it was necessary to have it for his character, but after watching it … it was not absolutely needed. Everything else I like very much … But I personally missed the “I’m blind” line, it wasn’t forced like a good bit of the easter eggs that were added.

Anyway, I enjoyed it, good job!

I am sure the robot parts are connect to nerves. When Luke gets his mechanical hand he showed reactions to getting poked.

I was a big fan of the work done on ANH:R and ESB:R (except for reverting Bobbas voice, and I will fight to the death over that 😄)

One could make the argument that Boba wanted to form his own persona, and not live in the shadow of the clones that were in his “father”'s image, so he adopted a different voice.

Accents are formed from where you live, Boba didn’t grow up where his father lived.

But he “grew up” to an extent with Jango at camino. His father had an accent as he raised him “fairly briefly” so he too would develop that accent. Also, if he was ever around any of the other clones, then there would be more sources of the accent around him.

That would work if not for the fact he uses his own voice in TCW.

Reverting Boba’s voice to the new version wouldn’t be that hard to do if you want to “personalize” your own ESB:R (both interpretations are good but the original one is far more sinister).
Since Ady is no longer willing to do PT:R I guess we won’t see Temuera Morrison’s face when Boba is seducing the cute dancers.

A) Accents being genetically determined is silly.

But yeah better Fett voice is here to stay so if you want to change it back do your own versions.

It’s not genetically determined though, he uses Logans voice in AoTC and TCW and sounds similar to Morrison (because it was him) when he ages in the same way Rex sounds different when younger (Baker isn’t very good to start with, affecting an Australian accent in TCW) but sounds far more like Morrison by Rebels. None of those are American accents.

I’m just a massive fan of how Morrison sounds (I played Republic Commando) but I don’t feel like making a custom version of TESB:R for the simple reason the recording of the lines isn’t very good in the SE.

I guess I was unclear originally, I meant ‘I prefer Bobba having a Kiwi accent over a generic cowboy one’ rather than ‘I prefer the takes of the dialogue used in the SEs over the original’.

I understand too what you mean. I am on the fence about that. I like the original voice, it added some good personality that matched with Boba Fett. But, to be accurate now due to the prequels, it should now be Morrison’s voice. I understand the reason too why Adywan used the original since he was planning on completely redoing the prequel movies, so he could ax Jango Fett, or at least using his genetics to the clones.

But if I was skilled/had the time, I would implement Morrison’s voice strictly to be “correct” with the prequels. I’d watch Hals’ prequel trilogy and eventually all of Ady’s star wars as my preferred way of watching the movies … well, asides from watching Harmy’s despecialized since they are the only prefered ways of watching “untouched” star wars. 😉

Revenge of the Sith (The New Canon Cut) [DRAFT AVAILABLE]

I would be curious to watch your edit when it is all said and done, especially since Hal’s edition is really great.

I was walking this morning thinking about the ending for ROTS, well, specifically Hal’s LOE since its much better. One thought of an edit, based on yours or Hals would be the last time you see Anakin is after Obi Wan leaves him on fire. Then the rest can be the other scenes, with Yoda talking about splitting up the kids, Padme and baby lei at alderman and obi wan at tatooin. Thats how it ends.

My rational is it helps makes it SOMEWHAT possible to watch from the episode 1 in a straight line through the series. (Granted, if someone has NEVER seen the movies or knows anything about it, of course just watch the originals for the “Vader Revelation. Plus the OT is that much better …”)

Anyway, that way it leaves of Episode III like Obi Wan killed Anakin. But we are not too sure. They split up the children to hide from the empire/emporer. Lastly, when Luke does ask Obi Wan about his father, the lie still works on multiple levels. (You know, as the audience, he is lying by his reaction before answering.) The audience can either think that A.) he is not telling the truth about his father’s death by pointing at someone more evil who did it, Vader and the Empire to help recruit Luke. B.) The audience sees Vader, may expect it since from the last episode there was no Darth Vader, so again, Obi Wan is lying about something … suspecious. Could it be the father?

Again this is not a perfect solution, there is no way of editing the prequels to make the reveal believable in the orginal, it can happen since the middle of star wars came out first. But it kind of flows a bit better story wise.

The watcher can also reason that at the Death Star, Obi Wan could have figured out before hand that Anakin was Darth Vader at some point since many years passed from Episode 3 to 4. Or it wasn’t until the confrontation that confirmed Darth Vader is Anakin.

That was my thought. Of course there are some other edits that would need to be done. No mention of Anakin being Vader in Revenge of the Sith. Not at all.

Not a huge thing, but something I thought about this morning.

We could pipe in audio from Neil deGrasse Tyson over the First Order’s or Resistance’s intercoms explaining that one star has the power to destroy ten thousand planets.
But yes, the idea is that, apparently, one star does not equal one firing. And as far as this edit goes, there’s nothing to say that it wasn’t built for a single-use against Capital Planet.

That’s all fair enough, since the edits changes any assumptions of a one charge up per fire.

Or like you said, you can easily put in that quote. Maybe get a group of people in First Order troops in a class room with a sign that says “StarKiller Base 101.”

I see no flaw!

I am sorry if this was discussed earlier, this came to my mind the other day after watching the Version 1 cut. Since the base fired its beam, would there be enough of it left to allow the base to be destroyed? Like the original cut, the base turns into a sun, since original it was “full” from draining the sun?

Or is the “new” explanation is it needed to drain the sun to become fully operational to begin shooting stuff?

Now thinking more about it, I do say completely ax out boba fett from the movie.

Instead, there could be an extra character added that could be an imperial spy. Kind of like in The Force Awakens you had a resistance spy and an imperial spy …

Anyway, it shows a guy sneaking off the hallway, maybe after Luke kills the rancor. He could be in a cloak, or looks like some kind of bounty hunter or something. He Takes out a communicator and says “Inform Lord Vader Skywalker is here.”

If there needs to be more added about this concept: After holo escapes, the video screen can be used with an officer reporting to Vader that explains that troops found the Palace empty and rumors/reports that Jabba was killed and Skywalker escaped. Vader can be silent … or just choke the guy … whatever is needed.

It adds a good connection for the first part of the movie with the rest. It also goes with the scene with the emperor commenting about Vader’s search for Luke and telling him to just wait for Luke to come to him.

Too bad the footage from the old Star Wars Interactive Video Board Game only exists in VHS quality, as there’s plenty of shots of Vader at a communications console. He could probably take the call from Fett while in his pod though.

I agree it would be in the pod. The screen makes more sense its communication to the bridge of the executor. Or it could be between other ships. But, that scene COULD be used in this way. If there was to be a bit of an overhaul, one idea would be to build two sets. One that is the inside of the pod and the other a hallway in Jabbas palace. The main issue is the very few lines for Fett. So I came up with this idea

FETT IS WALKING DOWN HALLWAY IN PALACE. STOPS, BRIEFLY LOOKS AROUND AND OPENS A COMMUNICATOR. SCENE THEN CUTS TO EXECUTOR. THEN CUTS TO INSIDE OF VADER’S POD

VADER: Yes, Bounty Hunter? SCENE CUTS TO VADER’S PERSPECTIVE LOOKING AT HOLO OF FETT IN POD.

FETT (DISTRORTED): Skywalker is here.

VADER: Good. I want him alive.

FETT (DISTORTED): As you wish. ENDS TRANSMISSION

The rest of the scene could be the pod opening and reusing the scene you listed above for the video screen and having some lines between Vader and an officer about sending a fleet/shuttle/ship what ever to Tatooine.

Later on after the heroes escape, a scene with a holo of that office or a trooper commander can inform Vader that the palace is empty and no sign of skywaylker. It could end with a person in a vader suit just ends the communication, pauses, and walks off to end scene. Or he can choke the trooper/officer via the holo.

The no boba fett flowed pretty darn well. I am curious how the audio could be altered to flow well with those scenes. Anyway to prevent the silly demise is good to me!

The second video worked good too without so many “my master” sayings. It does help Vader not be such a lapdog. But, to play devils advocate, would Vader need to speak that way to either keep his ideal plan to over throw the emperor secretly and appear everything is normal? All is good master?

We know Vader wants Luke to join him, but it is evident Luke doesn’t want to. He needs the emporer to help turn Luke to the dark side, then kill the emporer, Vader really doesn’t think there’s any light left in himself. Till the end? Does Luke’s speach about his father before him do the trick? It was only when Luke was getting shocked he betrayed palpy. He thought about it too. That was his chance to kill the emporer.

Interesting, and I was thinkin about it, but I have to quote Threepio:
I just really don’t know how.
I can’t put the whole thing together. I don’t know what outcome Vader expects when he turns Luke over, because he must know if he lets the Emperor run the show, than the possible outcomes are not in his favor at all.

I am sure Vader is not sure too. When on Endor, after Luke refuses to join and is led off by the troopers, you can tell Vader was thinking things over. That could have been the beginning of the conflict, maybe second guessing his decision(s). There could be time for him to choose what to do when he brought Luke to the emperor. It wasn’t until the VERY end when he made his choice, which had to be a QUICK decision. Save Luke or not.

As for the Death Star plans, why not have it start with the centered dish, then cycle through a few designs when R2 is plugged in, ending on the correct one.

Later, during the briefing, use the correct design but keep the slightly more primitive “look” of the graphics.

I love that!

I pretty much forwarded to the changes from the version you have available to see what you have done.

All in all, I like the idea behind those changes. The more I thought about TFA, the whole firing twice didn’t make too much sense. Also, did that mean there were two suns next to the base? Did they need to use that high power laser on a small base when a fleet could take out a small resistance base? (Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed TFA, really did!)

So the idea of the Resistance trying to stop the super weapon BEFORE it fires adds the suspense and the importance.

Anyway I am curious about the “next” version that is being worked on. I am curious about a few things. Would it be feasible to remove the light side of Starkiller base when it fires? It has drained the Sun so I would think there would be no more light for the planet? Unless, is that planet relatively close to multiple suns like Tatooine?

Lastly, is there a way to further tink (somehow) Finn’s line? especially at the end he said “…they’ve done it!” What did they do? If there was a way to change the dialogue with other sources, could it be done to end “…They’ve made it!” or “…They’ve found us!” or something short on those lines? I don’t want to be one of those guys that nit picks every detail, since I am happy with the edit and like the direction.

Anyway, I like the direction of the edit a lot. The good guys won and lost at the same time from their mission. Sets a better mood for the next movie coming up.
