Episodes 1-9 into ONE cohesive Fanedit
Time

@SWOTFAN25 I actually gave it a little more thought last night, and I think I figured out a way to do it… but there are two exceptions:

  1. It would basically just be most of RotS combined with most of the last act of RotJ, with just little flashbacks and flashforwards of everything else (including TRoS).

  2. It would just really be about the fall and redemption of Anakin, more so than a story about all three generations of the Skywalker family.

I can reply again with additional details of how exactly I would go about doing this… but I’ll wait for your reply first, cause I wanna make sure this is an angle you’re actually interested in, before I commit to elaborating on it.

So I tried mapping this all out in my head a little more… and now I honestly don’t think this is something that can be done. I think this can be considered legit impossible.

The closest thing I can see to this is maybe just a trailer highlighting the whole saga, similar to that “star wars always” trailer that topher grace did a few months back.

Yes Peter Pan I am very much on board with you here. I had the exact same thought about A New Hope, replacing the design of the Death Star with the Death Star II, leaving its destruction for the end rather than having 2.

An idea I’ve been playing around with would be what if Luke’s force vision on dagobah was his actual duel with vader on Bespin, he ends up listening to Yoda and Ben deciding to stay and complete his training. This means he ends up staying on Dagobah while Lando/Leia/Chewie escape. But ultimatly this messes with the story so I’m still not sure. If the whole point is to tell the entire story through once cohesive narrative, what is the point if I mess with the story itself?

Having someone like Luke, Yoda, Obi-Wan, or hell even Threepio and Artoo narrate throughout the story is a very compelling idea. George I think even had the idea that the entire story is being told to us through Artoo’s perspective.

I might release a V1 of the edit with Episodes 1-8 before Rise of Skywalker comes out.
I’ve already got some ideas about the Sequel trilogy in mind, and also for transitioning between sagas.

I feel like one thing that would be really cool would be the binary sunset from ROTS fading into the binary sunset in ANH, and then having Luke alone at the Funeral Pyre fade into Luke alone on Ach-To Island. I really like the idea of Luke being the one bridging the 3 sagas together, and having the edit end with him in TLJ would be great.

Your idea of RotS sunset -> ANH sunset and then funeral pyre -> TFA Luke on the cliff sounds like the right way to go! Make the whole thing about the life of Luke. Maybe start it off with Padmé giving birth to him (like how Man of Steel starts with the birth of Kal-El) and end it with his death in TLJ for your v1 edit (followed by TRoS additions for your v2 edit).

Idk, just an idea.

Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

Since I can never make up my mind about this, I came up with a new system:

Tier 1 - Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi
Tier 2 - Revenge of the Sith, The Force Awakens, Solo
Tier 3 - The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Rogue One, The Last Jedi

NOTE: Each tier lists their respective films in chronologic order on purpose.
Disclaimer: I enjoy each Star Wars film for what it is.

The Last Jedi - Clean cut edition

i’m considering a v.11 (v.10.2?) adding in Luke’s ‘this is your fight now’ line from the purist edition

Would that make sense for him to say if he’s still alive though?

Well in the ending of the Clean Cut, Luke’s fate is purposely left ambiguous. I feel adding this quote doesn’t necessarily imply his demise, but rather a passing of the torch. Furthermore, we all know he DID die at that point in the saga, and it will be reiterated in Episode 9. So leaving his fate ambiguous satisfies both ideas… as a standalone, he looks like the hero who saved the rebellion and passes the torch when he feels his job is done… and as part of the saga, the added line will provide just enough implication that he has “passed on”…which leads us right into Ep.9 without a WTF moment.

I see what you mean, yeah.

Ranking the Star Wars films

Rogue One has grown on me a little bit recently… Gonna try this again:

1.Star Wars (1977)
2.The Empire Strikes Back
3.Return of the Jedi
4.The Force Awakens
5.Solo
6.The Fallen Knight (Last Jedi fan edit)
7.Revenge of the Sith
8.Rogue One
9.The Phantom Menace
10.Attack of the Clones
11.The Last Jedi (actual movie)

Ranking these movies is always tough for me. I like them all for different reasons.

<em>Star Wars: The Clone Wars</em> To Return With New Episodes
Time

Does anyone know why they are refining the Bad Batch arc for this new season, but not the Crystal Crisis arc? Seems weird that they would finish up one but leave the other unfinished.

Also, it’s interesting that these 12 new episodes are being labeled as Season 6, instead of Season 7. I’m assuming that means they’ll be bundled alongside The Lost Missions… Still a little weird, though.

Lastly, does anyone know what arcs are still missing besides these 12 episodes, The Lost Missions, Crystal Crisis, Son of Dathomir, and Dark Disciple?

Ranking the Star Wars films

I think at this point I can definitely say that my Top 6 are “locked in place” (until The Rise of Skywalker, of course):

1.Star Wars (1977)
2.The Empire Strikes Back
3.Return of the Jedi
4.The Force Awakens
5.Solo
6.Revenge of the Sith

And Rogue One is pretty much locked as my least favorite of them all.

Where it gets tricky is with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and The Last Jedi. At the moment, those all keep flip-flopping amongst each other for me. I’ll need to see each one again to really be sure how I feel about them all, I suppose. Been busy lately, so unsure when I’ll have time for that.

Also, I imagine that I will feel very differently about The Last Jedi once I see The Rise of Skywalker.
