Thanks a bunch, friend.
Awww, shucks guys!
This edit is made using the Italian dub and is subtitled so as to - assuming you don’t understand the vocals - say another thing, hopefully changing the story significantly.
Apologies to those who can understand Italian and similar language, I made the faux pas of choosing a language that can be understood by people who don’t even speak it.
Anyway, I hope you take no offence to my butchering of the language 😅
Inspired by David Houghton’s article; “George Lucas nearly wrote a perfect prequel trilogy. He just didn’t notice” and my own philosophical and political opinions - as well as my understanding and interest in historical eras - this edit is an attempt to change the meaning and themes of the prequel’s story, whilst keeping most beats intact.
This is a foreign language edit, akin to The Blackened Mantle, using the Italiano dub.
In the final days of the second Clone War, the Galactic Republic is crumbling from the inside and out.
Jedi Knight Anakin Vallorum’s world is imploding.
His friendship with the most powerful man in the Galaxy makes him a target.
His oath to the Jedi makes him a slave.
His love for his wife makes him a criminal.
His pain will make him a monster.
Depict the Jedi as not the good guys.
Depict the Sith as not the bad guys.
Depict Anakin as emotionally and psychologically troubled, dealing with guilt and nightmares from the war, and with the stress of his life in general.
Depict Obi-Wan and Anakin as genuine friends.
Depict Anakin and Padme as convincingly in love.
Improve the film overall.
FIRST 19 MINUTES
SPECIAL THANKS TO
Hal9000 for creating my first viewed fan edits and inspiring me – and humouring me.
ThatGuyWhoEdits for helping me with my editing endeavours.
Snooker for introducing me to foreign language editing and for making high-quality edits.
Darth Lunar for being the first – I think – to use foreign language editing and for making The Blackened
So are Tarantino cuts the new 3 in ones?
JEDIT: Good job btw
I don’t plan on doing a Tarantino cut, just plagiarising The Blackened Mantle, lol.
Not quite sure what to call this one, TechnoJedi or Save, Change, and Jedi?
I love it!! I think that it is great to have Anakin actually do this himself instead of being told to by Doko, have it be him avenging Obi Wan’s force bitch-slap.
You screw with Obi-Wan, you screw with Anakin, you screw with Anakin, you get screwed.
Amazing clip! Will this edit work in Machete Order?
Which clip? My clip? If so; thanks, and I think so.
In an attempt to make Phantom Menace more tonally ‘mature’, here’s an edit of the Naboo space battle.
It has been completely rescored/re-sound-effected. There’s also color correction.
Snooker, stop hogging the limelight. Very good stuff!
Thenk. That gif of Jimbob Franco tickles me in a way that nothing else can
My go at the RotS Dooku duel, I need my gratification:
I like it, though I kind of thought that bang bang was a bit too noticeably Kill Bill. Though I’m not going to say that’s a problem.
Yeah, I understand hating him - I hate him too - but for me the real problem is his dialogue rather than how he says said dialogue. Which is, I think, less bad in the Italian dub
PS, Coruscant sfx not made by me!
My go at the Anakin Padme reunion in AotC, recolour included.
Reunions and Outsourcing.
You done good boy
Thanks a bunch dude.
I have requested permission to view
I thought I’d do something wrong.
Retry the link.
IlFanEditore might get a kick outta watching this.
Has anyone tried to make the Jedi the ‘bad guys’ in an edit? This has always been an interest of mine, to see Anakin and Palpatine as the good guys, or at least as the lesser of two evils.
This is something that I’m toying with in my possible foreign language edit, though I’ve ripped my version of RotS in Italian rather than Japanese - thought I’d be ‘original’.
That was harrowing. Especially the Shining score.
I kinda like that, though it could be a bit better, and would of course facilitate a modified plot to work.
Is Zerome serious in saying that? Has anyone in favour of Maul as the Trilogy Villain been serious thus far?
Was he serious before now just trying to act like he was being sarcastic this whole time? So many questions!
I’ve just jumped out a window.
I really wonder what Kitty’s film about Mual would turn out to be like.
But Maul could be made a trilogy villain
You might as well be trying to make Boba Fett the main villain of the OT.

password for viewing the clips ? looks very interesting , and I like how you are toning down the character of Two Face . They made him seem too much like the Joker in the theatrical release and the character was never meant to be that goofy .
I’d like a link to this!
Hopefully your changes can make me appreciate the film a bit more, still can’t go back to Keaton after getting so attached to Kilmer, and I film this film to be too Batshit and too Burton to be a Batman film.
