What could this mean!? My poor little heart can’t take this, Adywan!
It’s gonna be great!
Oh it’s beautiful!
Ady isn’t ILM. Accurately modeling and texturing and animating a Wampa to his standards would take way longer than it would take to “fix” the issues with the practical costume.
CGI isn’t as easy as you may think it is, especially CGI of living things.
I’m assuming that it would end up on fanedit.info
Adywan, what’s the ETA for the Revisited Complete Saga trailer? (The one mentioned on the main post)
It “fits”, I guess, but for some reason it really pulled me out of the movie. It just doesn’t feel like a line that would be in a Star Wars movie.
I just finished watching the edit and I would like to say that it’s great!
I really dislike Anakin saying “So we doin this or what?”. I understand why you cut him saying master and whatnot, but the added line doesn’t fit.
No edit can fix the fundamental flaws of this film (A majority of the exposition is done through boring walking and talking scenes), but you do a good job of making it seem less tedious, somehow. I don’t know what you’ve done, but keep doing it.
All of my other possible complaints have already been brought up (to my knowledge)
I really love how you added Anakin’s theme to that one scene.
You’ve brought entirely new concepts to the realm of fan-editing this movie. Overall, as a fan edit, this is up there with Q2 and HAL 9000 in terms of my favorite ROTS edits.
I believe that Ady had mentioned it being 3 separate films at some point.
IT TOOK 9 YEARS TO MAKE! IT’S GOING TO BE THE BOYHOOD OF FAN EDITS!/s
Looks great, Ady!
I’m incredibly surprised that you left in the “Oh look! There’s Captain Solo!” line, but you cut out 3P0 wanting to leave early.
I don’t know if a crawl is necessary if the actual edit is as short as it currently is. All the context you need is right there in the scene (Luke trying to turn his father around and whatnot).
I love all of these drastic edits that people are starting to do! Everything that one could do to keep the story relatively intact and cut all of the fluff has already been done, so these types of edits are all that are left. My only minor complaint is the title, “The Ancient Lore” doesn’t give off a Star Wars-y vibe to me.
This edit is especially interesting, can’t wait!
I’m pretty sure that John Knoll is the only one with a high quality version. I’m honestly surprised they didn’t stream that panel.
How’s the edit coming along?
Wow, Disney took down that other video QUICK.
I doubt that anyone that browses this thread is secretly a member of ILM, so updating the prequels THAT drastically would be nearly impossible.
The amount of effort going into this is amazing!
Is this still getting worked on?
As soon as any previews are released I would be incredibly interested in seeing them!
Looking forward to the finished product!
This sounds incredibly interesting! As one who really enjoyed the later Clone Wars seasons, this seems like a breath of fresh air in terms of ROTS edits. Most others cut out every single instance of anything “funny”, but I think that showing a little bit of that bond between Obi Wan and Anakin grow before being utterly shattered is really going to help this.
The music in that Obi Wan and Anakin walking and talking scene really helped add that sense of “Yeah, those dudes are bros” rather than the awkward silence of the original cut. All in all I’m really looking forward to this edit!
I hope to see this get made.
