The Clone Wars: Refocused (v1.5) [100%] - All core episodes COMPLETE! + Thoughts on the new TALES OF THE JEDI
Time

Do, why didn’t you decide to do one 60min episode out of 5x14,15 and 16? I mean, it’s a one straight story.

When it comes to Ahsokas trial, I’d leave 5x17 as a separate one, since it’s has a different, more chill csi spoof, vibe and then present the 3 other episode as one story

I’ve been going through these episodes and really the only issue I have with them besides technical ones is the opening texts. I feel like they aren’t needed at all… They just take up time that honestly leaves me bored. I feel like taking the first few minutes of an episode and doing a cold open before the title card is better.

Mando EP2: Search for the Jedi [V2 RELEASED]
Time

I don’t feel like her using lightsabers takes away from Luke, any more than Ben using a lightsaber in the cantina takes away from Vader showing up later.

This episode introduced Din to the concept of the Jedi, as well as serving as a warning to what they could be. This is Din getting a glimpse of what could become Grogu’s future. That’s fairly significant. Her reluctance to help and her prowess in battle feed into that insight. It all gives Din a choice of whether this is the path he wants for Grogu or not.

So, in the end, you are gonna go with a bit trimmed version of 2x01 or you decided to use the version you shared hersome time earlier (with Mando obtaining the armor quite fast 😄)? Because I really love what you did there, it os brillant.

I guess that since you cut 2x4,2x7 would be cut as well?

And I am wondering how much of the Ahsoka episode you had to trimm? ☺️

Labyrinth of Evil: The Canon Edit - a novel fanedit (Released)
Time

Lately I ve been rereading The Hand of Thrawn books, and I think it could be simply and smoothly edited into new films timeline. After first few chapters those are my observations:
-changing 19ABY into, lets say, 14ABY.five years is long enough, and then the events of the TT seems more recent.
-changing Solo children into one Ben Solo (minor character anyway)
-removing references to reborned Palpatine.
-fixing some minor continuity issues
-maybe add some minor easter eggs (ST/ new canon names for eg) here and there.

JEDIT
Quick question. I wanted ask about the fanedit antipirate policy that is applied in this case.
If I owe an original book im English, it os okay to obtain a fanedit of this book in the same language in ebook format? Or look for the ebook veraion of it here?

I read through the overview, it seems unclear what drives the plot. Why are they going from place to place to place to place if not to get to Palpatine?

You could always establish something about some old Sith fleet on Exegol or Katan fleet from EU. You could make the protagonists lookin for it just to find out it was already discovered by the FO 😄

Have Ben live, Leia’s vision of his death changes, they get married, Reylos unite! Everyone wins.

Have Ben live, but slip away into exile to go be a wandering Robin Hood-type who tries to redeem himself by helping the downtrodden across the galaxy because there’s no way he would be accepted with Rey’s Resistance buddies after what he’s done

I believe that the only way to pull it would be to cut him completely from thr Exegol 3rd act, and restructure the scenes order, so the scene of him and Han Solo wpuld appear just before the final Tatooine scene. He just throws the lightsaber and stands there. It d be a nice ending for him, like, bitter sweet. He s brought back to the light, but what next? What can he do now? It would be a nice end for thos character.

I also like the idea that Rey killed her parents. I never found a way to implement it into the movie that didn’t feel forced. As an inexperienced editor, this being my first real project, I was also generally keeping things as simple as needed to get my goal accomplished.

Check out krausfadr’s fanedit (Resurgance), it could be very useful for you 😉

Dark Empire I And IIs cut could be a nice idea as well. I know it d bea bit of canon soap opera with the Emperor returning as a clone again and again, BUT, it d add a lot to the story as well.

  1. it kinda would introduce the concept much earlier in the time line, and it d explain why they are not really surprised so much in IX that he came back 😄
  2. it d explore some darker traits of Lukes personality (explore more later in the VIII)
  3. it would explain some force powers the Emperor and Luke have in the sequel trilogy
  4. we d see more Jedi Leia, which would be coherent with IX
  5. some super weapon that we d see more developed in the sequel trilogy
  6. Luke as a jedi master 😉

And about making a Canon LOE version, I haven’t read “Ahsoka” but I think I ve heard there were some flashbacks to her encounter with Maul. Maybe you could just include that?
Or maybe just do a one big novel like Game of Thrones and use some parts of other Canon novels for eg. Some trimmed version of “Dark Disciple” as a Volume I, or some chapters of the Shadow Conspiracy novelization. I know it wouldn’t be one coherent story, but, you d end up with a huge Clone Wars canon chronicle.

Mando EP2: Search for the Jedi [V2 RELEASED]
Time

Hm. I think you should start with ep1, when the guys sit on the table, and Cobb stats to say something he probably won’t stand a chance against mando, cut directly to Mando going away with the armor from the end of this episode (Bo as cameo). Then, use the start of the second episode, cut into 3rd.use the whole 3rd episode, cut the 4th,only have the scene with Dark troopers, we ll suppose they repaired the ship on Mon Cala.then,use some trimmed s02e05. Then the whole ep6. As much as 7th was nice, it’s a filler so you d have to cut it :c Then, the final act is the 8th episode. It leaves you with 3 whole episode, short bits of 2 eps and one trimmed. You ll end with a coherent 2h30 movie I think

Clone Wars Movie Series - Episodes (Seasons) I to V released...
Time

So, no point of starting a thread for something that’s basically a trimmed version of the 1st episode of smudger9’s series.

I made for myself a shorter version of the I, I cut the first 39min (I just consider those stories uber boring).
Unfortunately, my skills didn’t let me edit it the way the opening could stay.

So, I also cut 20th Century Fox logo (since I cut the classic opening, there’s was no point of leaving this nostalgia call, especially that the studio didn’t have anything 2 do with TCW), the fanedit org logo (cause I wont post this edit of someone else’s fanedit there, though I left the fanedit claimer in the beginning)
and I left lucasfilm logo silent along with “Long time ago…”.

My custom movie starts with Obiwan and the rest is unaltered Smudgers9s brillant work 😉

Here are the first minutes (since the rest is exact the same as smudger9 made it):
