Just wanted to say I like your title a lot.
I always try to put a lot of thought into things like that, mine is a two-fer and I called my Ep1 “From a Dusty World to the Stars” becuase I liked the play on Stardust.

Thanks…… I’m struggling with the title to episode II.

Maybe use Episode 11’s title (Daughter of Ferrix)?

I’d love to see your edit 😉 wouldnt miss it 😉

I agree that the first arc should be heavily cut.

EDIT
Since we currently have The Mando, TBOBB, Obi-wan (which I have no doubt one day you ll touch as well 😄), Andor and Ahsoka on the way; maybe you’d reconsider dropping the “episodic” style and try to make them all more like “A Star Wars Story”? Or just to skip “Episode” in the title and then Just leave SW logo there and the title 9f the movie?
It d be more consistent 8 think. Cause if u do a chronological order, you have Episodes 1-3, Solo, Obi-wan, Andor Episodes 1-X (3-4, I imagine), RO, Episodes 4-6,Mando EP 1-3,then probably Ahsoka Episode I (what if its only one and thats it?), then Eps 7-9.

besides, I think its clear that Vader lost but he’s alive and will return in next movies. Its not like we last See him half-dying and its left as a cliffhanger. Even if the audience didnt know any SW stories that come after this one, there’s still no doubt he s alive and Even more eager to destroy Obi-wan.
And then, if it wouldnt be that obvious to a viewer, his 1st appearance in RO would have a stronger/better effect.

Making the Obi-Wan & Anakin training session (From the Kenobi series) work in an AOTC edit.
Time

Octorox said:

Just in case anything thought I had abandoned this idea, I haven’t. I took a stab at implementing RogueLeader’s suggestion, along with some preliminary color grading, and pitching up Anakin’s voice. A ton of work still needs to be done on the foley and score for the duel scene, but here is a new test video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lQvxG9rR0zDwwI6yCnMCqBs8fUDLNOXh/view?usp=sharing

Looks great, I’m a big fan of any AOTC extended version ideas 😉 I think this scene would fit really nicely in the movie and it really adds to the whole subplot of Anakin being frustrated that Obi-wan is limitating him. I ve always thought that AOTC is the movie that would benefit a lot if the delete scenes were reinserted there, I have a huge nostalgią for that Episode.

Ahaha Just to clarify, I never minded the direction they went with Luke’s charakter in TLJ. Tho in “Kenobi” I Just thought it to be a bit ouflt of character that he needed to be convinced soo much to go after Leia. Plus, its a bit repetitive with TLJ, I guess I didnt want it to be Luke’s story 2.0, that’s all 😉

@Octorox
I meant cut it when they found her and say hello, them the next time we See her would be already on board of their ship.

So I’ve finally sae the V2. Overall - great job. There are things I thing could/should be changed but in generalnl it’s a very Well edited and coherent fanedit, doesnt feel faneditish. It does the job. And I understand you didnt want to alter the official story too much.

So, things I think could be improved:
-The infamous chase scene on Alderaan. I know its a very repetitive feedback but it can really end once we See a suspicious guy in the Forest saying hello. Its well too obvious they re there to kidnap there.
-The running Jedi on Tatooine - I think it can be cit even more - like to cut from Reva igniting the lightsaber directly to the footagr when he’s seen hanging dead in the Town (btw very good job on trimming the first EP).
-Bail convincing Obi-wan. It should be trimmed even more. Obi-wan wouldnt hesitate So much. Maybe the “Phone call” could be cut? Obi-wan shouldnt even be able to contact Bail So easily in the first place. Anyway, we dont need to See him how he enters the spaceship, we can cut directly to him landing On Daimyu.
-The cameo of Temeura should be reinserted 😭
-btw, not necesary for the story, but would be nice to See how Leia disses her cousin.
-I think we could have even less Haja 😉

“When Leia tells her father that “she’s not a real Organa”, we no longer have the context of it being something Leia was told by her cousin that she internalized. In this new context, it seems like it was Leia’s original thought, which imo doesn’t quite add up. I personally don’t mind Leia’s precocious reading of her cousin because I interpreted it as an example of her latent Force ability. I wonder if there’s any way you could reinstate some of that scene, at least enough to get the original context of the line back”

Maybe you are right about this one, but on the other hand, I forgot that it all started with the cousin being mean and it didnt feel off when I was watching the edit. Anyway, The whole Leia dissing her cousin scene was great.

“In Fortress Inquisitorius, Tala says something to the effect of “what are they hiding down there” but we no longer have the payoff of the Jedi tomb scene. I would just trim this line out if possible”
+1

And, I loved rescoring and all the trimming. And you improved soo soo much the Episode 3.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Redux Ideas Thread
Time

Random idea:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ktlF2Ii6tgc

Anyone considered maybe using some fragments of the dialogue during flashbacks? There’s a one nice line that would work well with the final showdown (Anakin asks Obi-wan what would he do if Anakin failed him as well, and Obi-Wan replies that Anakin would never fail him). I think it’d work super well with the “I’m not your failure Obi-Wan” moment).

This is something I put together in the other Kenobi redux thread, just in case it could be relevant to this project in some way:

NFBisms said:

I was one of those suckers who was actually really excited for Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022) because Deborah Chow and Kelley DIxon’s work on Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad fuckin’ rule. Needless to say, that was a bit misguided.

So I took a crack at editing the show to be closer in tone and style to what I expected out of BB-verse alumni.

I don’t think I’m going to do the whole show, but it was just a fun little experiment. The edit isn’t supposed to be like BB/BCS fwiw, just approaching the material with some of the storytelling philosophy I learned from them.

At the very least, Deborah Chow’s sensibilities as a director were still conducive to being arranged in this way so at least some of my excitement wasn’t unfounded

This is really great!
Anjohan: I hope that you use this in your edit! 😉

I second this, its really good.

+1,tbh,I cannot imagine a better and more climatic opening for this movie.

Bte, Since you changed the title to “Kenobi:A Star Wars Story” are you gonna make a custom title card as well?

So, so far seeing how the series is progressing you think this project will end up as a movie, shorter series or two movies (like Dune movie for ex or some older EU books - Part I and Part II) ? 😉

“The Imperial March (perhaps a very dark, slowed-down version) HAS to play when we see him. What is up with this score??? It’s pathetic!”
Couldn’t agree more, this series requiers some rescoring, the music is terrible there.
