Well just about everything in the scene would be CG so I could actually see it happening
Now someone just needs to get on the phone to whoever is in charge of this sort of thing and tell them to sort it! lol
Put the fight back in with Greedo, but don't call him Greedo. Just make him a random Rodian.
Anything they have with Darth Maul, put him in. See if they can put in his, "Fear attracts the fearful," dialogue from the Duel of the Fates music video.
The Senate scene (vote of no confidence) could probably be cut out. Palpatine basically sums up what happens in it, anyway.
Either blow up the love story, or add to it. Cut out the love scenes, or add the Padme family scenes in.
I don't really hate the C-3PO stuff as much as everyone else seems to. However, maybe cut out those scenes and put in the raid on the droid control thing instead? That scenario sounded like a Clone Wars episode.
Whatever footage they have of Anakin during the Jedi purge, put it in. Especially the Shaak Ti scene. I don't care if it contradicts the Force Unleashed. That game's story was ridiculous, anyway.
The Dagobah scene can be added without it interrupting the pace.
Try to get the Birth of the Rebellion scenes in.
Also, what is this I hear about an unseen Obi-Wan and Padme scene? I've never heard of it before.
Now that Disney is in charge I doubt there will be special editions of the PT. You'll have to look to the fan editors to get your fix, and most of them are motivated to fix these turds; get rid of Jar jar completely and so forth...not make them even more George Lucasy.
...Though now that I've said it, maybe someone who claims to love the PT will make a special edition? Of course that would mean they would have to make changes to the master's works, violating the usual apologist claim that it is disrespectful to the filmmaker to change his art. Come to think of it, why is anyone who claims to love the PT asking about or making suggestions on how to change the movies?
oic wat u did thar
They need to redo Qui-Gon's death scene and have him disappear (like Obi-Wan and Yoda did) in Obi-Wan's arms when he dies. It would make more sense considering he figured out the force ghost thingy.
Are you an idiot
I thought he figured it out after he died and was then able to interact with the land of the living?
Looking on Wookiepedia under Qui-Gon Jinn he did find a way to maintain his identity after death from a Shaman of the Whills but I don't think he knew how to fully interact (his attempt to stop Anakin in AOTC failed) with the living until ROTS with Yoda. He didn't know everything like how to disappear. Besides Vader still had to be surprised in ANH so that is out.
I would have edits and changes for the originals, as well.
Me too. I don't claim to pretend that GL is anything more that the lucky hack who created the universe that, by its first sequel, outgrew his abilities to properly portray it.
I don't agree with that. GL is a hero of mine.
I was just saying, a hundred people could edit the same movie and come up with a hundred different versions.
I've owned the RotS DVD since it was released and I've only just now looked at the deleted scene. I am a bad person.
All of the scenes about Padme and the Rebellion need to be put back in. They're important plot-wise and it means Padme does something other than being Anakin's wife and giving birth to the twins.
I can see the rationale to include the original edits of things as well as director's cuts. I just don't know of any original version I'd care to watch. I've got the 5 disc Blu Ray of "Blade Runner", for instance, and the only discs I ever play are the Final Cut version from a few years ago, and the supplementals. The 3 additional discs with the original cut, the workprint and the 92 "director's cut" (which wasn't quite) I never even think about playing.
"Loving" a movie(s) does not equate to thinking them "perfect" and untouchable. Perfection is rare and pretty much unattainable.
The very existence of this thread makes me smile. You guys are me in 2005, wishing GL would have made slightly different movies. I can't wait to see how this evolves over the course of the next ten years.
I'm not openly wishing the movies were different, myself. I quite like them the way they are. The only real criticism I have is in what was taken out, which is a pretty common quibble one can have with movies once you see the deleted scenes (and especially a common thing to consider in an age where "extended editions" are a common feature on dvds). At least in the PT's case Lucas cuts out scenes and keeps them out based on his will, not somebody else's-- it always pisses me off to see scenes cut out of movies that aren't even reinstated by the directors on DVD, like the Hell monologue in "Dogma" or god knows what was excised from "Gangs of New York".
Are the movies perfect? No, but I wouldn't bother changing the nitpicky details in them. Right now the "Back to the Future" moveis are playing on TV, and as much as I like those flicks, they've got a whole mess of errors when it comes to continuity-- both in how time travel might feasibly work and in how the characters act just on a dramatic basis. But would I want to try and make an edit to iron out those small differences I have with the filmmaker's vision? No. That would be petty and stupid.
Restoring deleted scenes is how it starts. Despite the fact that the filmmaker himself didn't want those scenes in there you think you know better. You know, you don't have to wait for George Lucas to come to his senses and make the movie the way you want it to be. With the right editing software, you can make the movie better and put those scenes back in yourself...
It's one thing to casually speculate about hypothetical special or extended editions in the future. It's quite another to go out and acticely make them yourself. There's something pathological in behavior like that, especially when it involves investing that much capital for the hardware and software necessary to make these unofficial edits that can't legally be shown, even. It's rather sad, actually, that people would rather edit someone else's film than make their own.
The only 'change' that I'd actually ask for isn't really a change at all; its more of an addition. I would absolutely love for Qui-Gon to have a cameo at the end of Revenge of the Sith (be it a full-body Force Ghost or simply his voice) as was originally intended.
There's a ROTS deleted of scene of that.
I was under the impression that it was never filmed...something about Liam Neeson being in a motorcycle accident.
It's on Youtube.
I've only ever seen a fanmade one on YouTube.
It may have been on some DVD Edition already released, but there was storyboards and I believe unused footage of the raid on a Core Ship in AOTC. I would love to see that..
More Dooku. Interesting character, but you need to go to supplimentary material to learn anything of substance about him.
