I watched The Phantom menace, and there are still a few things I would have removed. George Lucas always held that Star Wars is really about Anakin Skywalker. For instance, there are now blinking and lips moving aliens in the cantina. Edits like these do so much more. Continuing on through Episodes 2 and 3, the intrepid editor slims down the often interminable romance scenes between Anakin and Padme, chops the overblown , and cuts it so Padme actually dies because of Anakin.
And a love life - Rey Skywalker? Star Wars: Episode 9 is expected to reach theaters in 2019, followed by the third Star Wars Anthology film in 2020. Seriously, name me a single scene that can be entirely saved with some good editing? The podrace could be cut quite a bit shorter, however. That's why you don't screw around with trying to tack sequels or prequels or reboots onto great films. The Jedi seemed to be actively scouting for kids with a high midichlorian count so that they could permanently abduct them and train them as Jedi. The actor showed his cut only once in a now semi-legendary private screening in 2012 of industry friends because there were obviously huge legal issues that prevented him from screening the edit in public.
. Attack of the Clones Anti-Cheese Edit. Jar-Jar's voice as well as the voice of the Neimodians were either removed or replaced. It really has no problems and truly does improve upon the commercial blu-rays that someone might view instead. The Phantom Edit was the first unauthorized re-edit of The Phantom Menace to receive major publicity and acclaim. He should have been able to make Dooku's heart explode instantly just by looking at him.
The whole idea was silly and badly thought-out. If there was a rule to scout for blue eyes to abduct them and force them to become celibate monks, if you do it properly you won't be seeing many blue-eyed kids after a few hundred years. Materialized from out of nowhere was a good film that had been hidden inside the disappointing original one. Not every Jedi obeys the rules? I'm working on A New Hope right now, from the Blu-Ray version, and I can tell Lucasarts botched the whole thing, lol. As for the light saber battles, I preferred the low key versions of the original trilogy.
Where were the people dying in the streets? Other than that, the edit is the same except for a few minor things I re-worked that I didn't like in the original edit. At this point, it's hard to imagine that anything less than a full remake could possibly fix all of the problems of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy - but, in the meantime, a few incredibly dedicated fans are doing their best to make the worst Star Wars movies watchable. So Anakin brought balance to the Force by being Luke's father, Luke accepting his emotions and even using some of his anger or love for his sister, if you remember the exact dialogue in the throne room scene to defeat Vader, something that was strongly opposed by the Jedi Order. Edited January 2, 2016 by NovaSilisko I don't have a problem with politics and romance per se, but meaningless politics why was a trade embargo such a big deal for Naboo? The best way to do that would have been simply to have the video show a completely blank screen. I think it played better knowing that he didn't have the heart to tell her exactly what he saw because it was too horrible.
So, Anakin and Padme's scenes were drastically edited to make Anakin way less whiny and petulant, and most of the cringe-worthy dialog was removed. The editor was revealed to be of in the September 7, 2001, edition of the. There was also a lot of extra cheese in this one as well that needed to go. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the other Jedi with Mace fight any better than they did. You could feel that the real fight was between their minds, which you couldn't see. Like the following: -Rescore scenes -Masterfully reinsert entire subplots -Restructure a films story -Redefine how we view characters -Brand new special effects -Attempt to modify the tone of the film These type of edits have clear goals, and attempt to achieve them as best as possible. Growing up with the go-go-go action of the original films often made the prequels feel like period piece documentaries — interesting but ham-fisted.
That is precisely the reason that these type of YouTube edits frustrate the hell out of a fan like myself. So it had to be a professional. Rumor attributed The Phantom Edit to , who admitted to having seen the re-edit but denied that he was the editor. I have just become a little sensitive to the little things after spending an inordinate amount of time doing this. This may come as a shock, but. Adding an atrociously bad Jabba the Hutt scene to A New Hope, throwing in an embarrassing new musical number in Return of the Jedi, and Greedo shooting first — these were Lucasfilm trolling us, softening us up for The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. It was a real honor to be mentioned on the show.
I think this is pretty awesome. How do they not know about Adywan? Where was the economical crisis? Make Yoda powerful, certainly, but have him simply be powerful through the will of the Force. And in addition to all the above, there was also one called Star Wars Prequels Fan-Edit: Order 66 1080p - but I never got a chance to see who it was by, or how long it was, as it seems to be gone now - and there will be other edits not listed above which will appear eventually too, no doubt. Balance could mean living a more full life, while still being a Force user, but not succumbing to the Dark Side just because by allowing yourself to have emotions. Edited January 6, 2016 by Nibb31 possible plot error: Leia claims to remember her mother, which may have been a false memory or more Force magic? I highly recommend the 'anti-cheese' edits they are up on YouTube currently for free. Edited January 6, 2016 by KerbMav I really don't get why the prequels get so much hate.
And no, that's not a joke. I apologize for the rant. No wonder there aren't any left. There isn't anything to salvage in it. There are many edits of Episodes 1-3 where people try and fix many of the wrongs.
