I think it'll be neat to hear a less whiny Anakin. Haha. It's little things like that that make me really get into an edit. Having 3PO sound different should be good too. Anakin making him was just pure fanservice, much like Fett looking into the camera in ANH SE. All I got out of it was a chance to exercise my eye rolling abilities.

 The whiny Anakin i'm sure everyone would wish dissappear. Heck, the only part of that movie that was good were the parts with Obi-Wan, but that's off topic.

I liked the idea of having Anakin create C3PO, yes it raised a lot of questions, but still i thought it was interesting.

The Bobba Fett appearence in ANH i thought was an interesting addition. Was it neccesary, no, but was kind of an eye catcher none the less. i wish we could've seen him more through out the films.

Hey guys, been out for awhile. been keeping up to date though.

anyways, this scene was shown at a Star wars convention V. It is supposedly a scene that will be added in the blu ray release of Return of the Jedi.

Look in the general discussion, some idiot freaked out and said it was off topic, like this forum hasn't done that before. :p

:: Editing out my previous warning, and calling me an idiot, has earned you a temp ban. Well done!

 sounds like u just destroyed the films. i'm srry, but the Prequels are find as they are. They don't need to be touched! Yes i agree there are inconsistencies and bad acting, but i saw episode one when i was eight and up til now, still think there works of art.

.... I hope this was intended as a joke post.

1. Unless there's a mass of people that are throwing all the film prints, DVDs, videos, and other medias of the SW Prequel films into a massive bonfire of Doom that I am unaware of, I can safely say that me creating a couple of fanedits most certainly does not destroy the original films.

2. Au contraire, mon frere - the Prequels most definitely need to be touched and worked on.  

3. In terms of own personal preference, I do prefer my Prequel edit trilogy over the 3-in-1 SOTOR, but I think some people may find interest in a single film version that serves as a prequel story to the OT.

4. If you want to get technical, ALL films are artistic works.
The level of quality of the artwork, however, is always open to individual interpretation.

 not joke posting. i agree that all films are artistic works. Still, its annoying to continuously hear, "The PT sucks" or "It's so inconsistent" i could go on but i think you get the point. i just find that its unfair to compare the PT to the OT as they are completly different movies from two different eras. We would be saying the same thing if it was backwards.

One thing i think we can all agree on though, is that AOTC is the worse star wars movie ever!

Notes:
Originally based off a very rough cut of EP1 and EP2 by jra166, this fanedit was my first time working with the Star Wars Prequels and combined Episodes 1-3 into a single movie film which rewrote the story to have a major focus on Obi-Wan during his life in the Old Republic and a secondary focus on the young Jedi Anakin's fall to the Dark Side and rise as Darth Vader. Initially, I was not at all satisfied with how this edit turned out, which is what led me to work on the films individually and create my own fanedit trilogy of the Prequels instead. Much later on after learning new editing techniques and getting requests from several viewers, I decided to come back to the SOTOR edit and revise it for a V2 release, re-editing the fanedit into a movie about the past of the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi which I am much more satisfied with.

Episode 1 Cuts/Edits:

Episode 2 Cuts/Edits:
- The Episode is now divided between 2 subplots:

2. The second story focuses on Anakin, the beginning of his relationship with Padme, and the death of his mother

- The "Jedi spying on Palpatine" subplot has been removed
- Added the deleted "Plot to Destroy the Jedi?" scene back into the film (which replaces a similar scene that occured between Mace and other Jedis)
- Trimmed the "Opera House" scenes to only be about Palpatine telling his story of Darth Plagious to Anakin
- Added the deleted "A Stirring in the Senate" scene back into the film
- Cut and re-edited the "Mace VS Palpatine" duel (along with the following "Anakin's choice" scenes) to remove redundant elements and increase the drama of the sequence
- Re-edited Anakin's encounter with the younglings into the rest of the "Order 66" scenes

- Completely removed the "Yoda VS Sidious" duel from the film - the final battle is now a single duel between Obi-Wan and Anakin
- Cut and re-edited the "Birth of the Twins/Darth Vader" sequence to remove overtly stupid plot elements
- Removed the scene of Padme naming the second twin Leia

 sounds like u just destroyed the films. i'm srry, but the Prequels are find as they are. They don't need to be touched! Yes i agree there are inconsistencies and bad acting, but i saw episode one when i was eight and up til now, still think there works of art.

It doesn't really need a solution. Vader says to bring his shuttle, then we see him on his flagship. Anyone with half a brain can figure out that he flew to Executor in his shuttle.

If this kind of stuff really needs to be explained to the audience, then maybe Adywan had better add Ric Olie into the film...

 well, yea it is common sense, but the audience has to be treated like they're brain dead. i think it just makes a clearer transition is all.

Thanks for the offer, but i don't want to add any extra scenes of ships landing/approaching. It's the same kind of thing that GL added in the ESB:SE of Vaders shuttle docking with the Executor. IT is something we never needed to see and broke the flow of the scenes.

 

 

 not saying you're wrong or anything, but i thought it was a good addition due to the fact that in the OT u see a shot of him saying "prepare my ship" and then the next time we see him he's on the main bridge of the executor.

regardless, i'm sure you've already come up with a solution though.

I'm also enjoying the anticipation like I used to as well.

When I was a kid three years seemed like forever so waiting between Ady's projects fits into that sensation.

The wait between ROTJ and TPM was a different experience because for a long time George was saying that it wasn't ever going to happen and then a rumor would leak out and die down so when it was finally announced it was a real buzz (and that added to the let down).

After that the wait was more tinged with dread than excitement.

But the gaps between Star Wars>ESB>ROTJ were part of the fun (like leap Christmas).

I'd rather savor the wait for something really good than have something slapped together quickly.

 that's how i felt with the PT. After i saw the first one, i couldn't wait until the second. after the second though, i wasn't as excited, but was shaking up and down when ROTS finally came out. i had to beg my dad to take me.

And yea, since i was only eight years old when i saw TPM, those three years seemed like freakin' forever.

Ady's kinda given that feeling back just because it seems like its so close to being done, but then there's one more obstacle to get through.

like u said bingo, i'd rather have something really good then have it made in one month.
