Pre-ANH original 77 version VHS tape?

I like pan and scan if I’m watching on a 4:3 CRT, which is what I do.

But that sucks otherwise. So the first one was based off 81 theatrical. And the early 90s releases (pre-SE) are the same way?

And is it the same for the Laserdiscs? I could go either way, LD or VHS. Ideally I’d like a theatrical (1977 version) “Star Wars” in 4:3 pan-and-scan

Adywan's ANH plus SC38?

I want a totally CGI’d prequl-fied version of the OT and particularly ANH.

I’m a classic film fan. I LOVE old school effects. I love the original theatrical version. But if I want that I’ll watch 4K77. Now I’m searching for a version that would blend better with the modern series. I think Adywan’s plus SC38 would be awesome. I was a bit dissapointed with SC38, where they put so much effort in to details like the costumes and such, but made no effort to match the stlye of filming of the original movie. BUT, there’s enough good, cool shots in SC38 that I would still want it in a new digital version, at least some of it (some of the shots are just WAY too much and Id want cut, but theres definitely several great shots, mostly the ones where the camera isnt moving too much).

I found one version that seems to do a lot of this, its Adywan + SC38 + some of Hal9000s special edition. But they also add in Rogue Ones ending at the start of the movie which I don’t want. So is there a version anyone knows of that will satisfy wht I’m looking for?

At what point did Tatooine robes become Jedi uniforms?

fmalover said:

I say ROTJ marked the point George Lucas decided that Obi-Wan’s robes from the first movie were the official Jedi vestments, as evidenced by Anakin’s ghost, which retroactively creates a problem.

If Obi-Wan was in hiding why would he still be wearing the very robes that would give away his identity as a Jedi?

idk if Im in the minority, but if feels like Jedi is really what kicked off the prequel era, and really set in stone what the universe is, compared to “Star Wars” and “Empire” where so many possibilities were open and they could go in any direction

(The Mandalorian+BoBF) The Way of Mandalore | A New Mandalore Movie Saga (v3 Release Out Now)

I am very happy based on your last post that you ARE trying to work in the modern Boba content. There is too much of it and I know in my heart an editor would be able to make something good out of it (I know there are some other edits already but I think your idea of combining Boba/Mando together is GREAT). There must be what, at least 2 - 3 hours of modern Boba content? At least 2. I can’t recall. But either way, it’s enough that boiling it down to under 1 hour I think does the character an injustice. Boba had great in character moments in the show. We just need to excise the parts that pacify him.

Cut down I have to imagine there can be at least 90 minutes of quality “modern day” Boba content. That coupled with some post-season 2 Din should be able to make a good 2-1/2 hour movie, right? I don’t have the context of Season 3, so I am unsure how that might affect it. I did not even watch S3 because Grogu returning to Din on Tatooine infuriated me. They need to be separated for YEARS. It ruined the emotional impact of S2 finale.

My personal edit of A New Hope (with SC38 Reimagined) (Released)

Hello! I watched your youtube clip from a few years back and the way you cut SC38 into the movie looks great! The best I’ve seen. I’ve been wanting a version of ANH with SC38 and all the special edition stuff.

I think the only thing that would take your version even further is to add the new CGI clips from Adywan’s ANH Revisited. His clips definitely fit that “Special Edition” vibe.

May I get a copy of your alternate cut without the jabba scene?

Good extended Revenge of the Sith edit suggestions

Hello. I am sorry if this might be the wrong section, I was unsure where else to put this.

I am in search of a good Revenge of the Sith edit that incorporates the missing Padme scenes.

The problem with most of the popular edits I’ve seen is that they make fairly radical changes, usually involving removing a lot of the humor of the movie. I wouldnt mind an edit that did this in a minor way but it seems most of the edits I find remove A LOT of the jokes. I am a fan of GL and the movie, I really just want a good extended cut that is up to 2023 quality, let’s say, that incorporates the missing Padme scenes but attempts to finish some of the missing effects and music.

I did ifnd one that souds interesting, Bobsun Dugnutts extended cut. The only issue I have with it is that it includes Qui-gon dialogue from TCW during the Yoda scene, and include’s Shaakti’s deleted death scene.

I am showing my wife the whole series for the first time, including TCW, so I am trying to avoid anything that contradicts it or directly incorporates TCW into RotS.

So can anyone reccomend me an edit under these guidelines? Worse case scenario, we watch the Dugnutt edit and just acknowledge those small discrepancies and move on.

The Clone Wars: Refocused [COMPLETE] - Renewed focus on your requests!

Hi Eddie. I posted last month wondering if your edit was the right choice for my wife and I’s chronological watch through of the entire series.

We decide to go for it and we’ve been watching your cut, Clone Wars Refocused. I will give my feedback first and then I have just some questions at the end:

Our context is, neither of us have watched Clone Wars in its entirety, only misc episodes here and there. Also, my wife has never watched Revenge of the Sith. So I am showing her the prequels and your series /before/ I show her RotS. But, we are both storytellers (I write screenplays and she writes/draws comics online) and my wife is a BIG animation fan, she watches a lot of animation so she naturally has a lot of thougnts.

So if I can critique my own feedback, I will tell you now I was NOT taking notes during my watch through, because I want to just relax and enjoy it as best I can. I feel this will hurt my feedback a bit, I would need to watch it a second time taking notes to give you the best feedback, probably along with watching the original show. Some of my feedback may seem a bit vague as a result of this.

We are halfway through your season 3. In general, we feel the edits were a bit more jarring in places early on and improve as the series goes along. Season 1 feels more choppy than the content in your Seasons 2 and 3 so far. I assume your seasons 4 and 5 will follow 2 and 3 in quality.

I tend to lean a bit more towards serious/darker content, but even I agreed with my wife on this point: It would be nice for your edits to just have a little bit more humor throughout.

Now I know your cut aims to cut out the cringe and unnecessary fluff, which I assume is where a lot of the humor lands. But the six George Lucas films had a lot of humor spread throughout. By no means do I want it to be overloaded with humor that ruins the mood, but… at times it feels like there are whole episodes/arcs almost entirely devoid of humor. IMO we shouldn’t go 30 minutes without a joke. George Lucas would have thrown a joke in by that point. So far, having watched TPM and AOTC and your Clone Wars Refocused, the GL movies had a lot more humor consistently throughout. I would just throw a few more jokes in throughout.

But otherwise we are LOVING your edit. We both had tried TCW in the past and just couldn’t make it. Now we are enjoying it as a great series that does not feel like fluff at all. Not that ALL of it feels completely necessary, but it’s always exciting and enjoyable at least.

So to TLDR me and my wife’s feedback:

  • We recommend to do another pass on your Season 1. Your seasons 2 and 3 feel much better cut by comparison. Season 1 felt a bit choppy at times.

  • Add just a /tiny/ bit more humor throughout. Do a watch through with humor in mind, we shouldn’t go more than 30-40 minutes without a joke imo.

Now, my questions. I wanted to show my wife an RotS cut WITH the Padme-birth of rebellion scenes included, just cause I feel Padme gets the short stick in RotS. I wanted to find a relatively newer fan edit for this and was having trouble, but I found Dugnutt’s RotS Expanded, which is basically just a cut that restores the deleted scenes as best as possible to blu ray quality. I love RotS already, so I dont want to change it much, which is why I choose his compared to some others that change/remove too much. But my questions are:

  • Dugnutt’s edit restores the Shaak ti death scene at the start of RotS. Does Clone Wars/your edit contradict this at all?
  • Dugnutt makes the decision in his edit to use audio from the Qui gon Liam Neeson dialogue from TCW in the qui gon scene in RotS. From what I can see, you do still include that content in your Refocused Season 4 finale “Cosmic Force”. So my question is, is the “Cosmic Force” episoe you cut truly and completely necessary? In the end, it wont bother us if it is, we’ll just acknowledge that some content gets reused. I would prefer Dugnutt just not include it, but I havent found a bettr RotS edit, the others Ive seen just change and remove too much of the movie.

Thank you for your edit! It has made the series watchable for us. We are busy adults and would NEVER have watched the original series otherwise.

Hi Patali! I can’t speak for Eddie but I can speak as a fan and a faneditor. I would tend to avoid movie cuts for the animated shows as a first watch. I feel the movie edits work better for the live action series as they tend to follow the trend of one ark per season, the animated shows however tend to follow a few different ark’s throughout.

I’d think you’d find the most enjoyment from tv style edits such as Eddie’s as it takes the content and makes it more approachable. It cuts down drastically on the watch time and presents it in a way where if you’re not enjoying an ark, for the most part, you can skip it! This is much harder to do with the original series and difficult to do with movie style edits. On top of this for Eddie’s edit, there is a spreadsheet that covers different watch orders for what you’re interested in!

I hope this helps answer your questions 😃

I think it does, thanks for your comment. Looking over Eddie’s edit this past day, I believe now I am leaning towards it, as I saw he also found a way to incorporate some of the 2003 series as a prologue. My wife is a big classic animation fan, so this excited her to know she could enjoy that series with the rest of TCW.

Today we just watched in chronological order, the first two Dooku Tales of episodes, TPM, the following Dooku episode, the baby Ahsoka episode (I put it before episode 2 because I felt it worked better there), then AOTC. We’re both loving it so far, TPM and AOTC were definitely improved by those Dooku Tales of episodes. So I think we will go with your suggestion. I am still a bit concerned about Rebels and bad Batch, they seem even more geared towards the silly aspects so I’ll have to find edits for those and see how to work them in.

But if anyone else has other thoughts it would be appreciated. Thanks all

The Clone Wars: Refocused [COMPLETE] - Renewed focus on your requests!

Hi Eddie (or anyone else here with knowlegdge on the subjeect). Sorry ahead of time for this long post, have a few questions.

I am diving into the world of Star Wars fan edits. My wife and I are about to watch through the series. I have never seen the various animated series, and my wife has not seen those, nor Revenge of the Sith or any of the live action series.

We were quite daunted by the thought of 14 seasons of animated content between TCW, Rebels, Bad Batch, Tales of, even the live action shows on top of that with some of the filler they have. I say we haven’t watched it, truthfully we’ve both seen a few episodes here and there in passing and felt we would definitely not be able to stomach that much animated content in the writing style of the Filoni-verse.

However, we were both intrigued by the idea of movie cuts because it seems much more digestible (might take a couple weeks instead of months). I especially wanted to do this after I decided we were going to watch acbagels Mandalorian and BoBF movie cuts. Ideally I was aiming to just watch movie cuts of all the series. ((the only thing I didn’t see working was Tales of the Jedi, but its so small I didnt see it being a big deal)).

However when I asked for suggestions on reddit, it seems everyone loves your Clone Wars Refocused series.

So I ask, do you have any suggestions for my dilemma? Not that its your job to sell me on your edit, but for what I want to do with my watch through, do you think your edit would still be best? Or do you have another editor you can suggest that might work better for what we had in mind?

Also, I wanted to watch the pre-TPM Tales of episodes before that movie, so basically at the start of my watch through. Would this work for a full series watch through in your opinion? I know you use some of the Ahsoka Tales of episdoes in your edit, do you do anything with the Dooku episodes? Cause I know they aren’t right in the timeline.

Thanks for all your work. Your edit does sound awesome, I just don’t want it to be jarring or too much in the conext of us just doing movies otherwise.
