Original Run Time: 136 minutes
New Run Time (v.1): 93 minutes
New Run Time (v.2): 89 minutes

Intention: Like many fanedits before it, my version aims to cut bad acting, bad dialog and streamline the film. I've also attempted bring the prequels in alinement with the original trilogy by cutting anything that broke continuity. I really want viewers to be able to watch Episodes 1 - 6, in order, without having key moments in the later films spoiled. Anakin no longer is C3PO's creator. In fact, C3PO and R2D2 are no longer major (minor?) characters in the PT. They are now just like any other droid. They do have minor dialog here or there, but they are never referenced by name nor are their roles significant.

Cut List
This list is in noway complete as a lot of minor tweaks I'm not referencing, but it should give you a good sense of changes. I've bold the changes I think are original (though I'm no expert and haven't seen many of the SW fanedits out there) so if I'm wrong please correct me.

(v.2 changes)
  • removed four scenes with the Emperor
  • reversed final shot of the film
  • removed subtitle cutlist
  • added French audio track supplied by Marvins (5.1)

(v.1 changes)

  • new opening crawl
  • cut "As you know our blockage is perfectly legal"
  • cut Qui-Gon telling Obi-Wan that the Trade Federation are cowards
  • cut the first "What?" in "What? What did you say?"
  • cut "Are you brain dead?"
  • trimmed Jedi's being served drinks
  • cut "Is that legal?" and "I will make it legal."
  • cut "Look!" from "Captain! Look!"
  • cut all droids talking
  • cut "We lost the transmission sir!"
  • cut "Yes sir!" after "Seal off the bridge."
  • cut "That will hold them."
  • cut "This is impossible!"
  • cut "Where are those droidekas?"
  • cut "Its a standoff! Let's go!"
  • cut "They're no match for droidekas."
  • cut "They've gone up the ventilation shaft."
  • cut "You were right about one thing, Master…"
  • cut "A transmission from the planet" and "It's Queen Amidala herself."
  • cut Jar-Jars bad jump down when Qui-Gon says, "Stay down!"
  • cut "Mores did you speak?"
  • cut Jar-Jar explaining he was banished
  • new transition to Gungan city
  • cut Jar Jar being arrested
  • cut "You didn't tell him about the missing Jedi"
  • cut "Ah! Victory!"
  • cut journey through the planet core
  • cut "Either choice presents great danger…"
  • cut introduction to R2-D2. (He is just another droid in this trilogy.)
  • cut "That little droid did it!"
  • cut "Now there are two of them."
  • cut most of Jar-Jar's antics on Tatooine
  • reworked Padme and Anakin's introduction
  • cut "You think you're some kind of Jedi…?"
  • cut most of Anakin's bad dialog
  • cut Sebulba trying to strangle Jar-Jar. In fact, Sebulba is just another racer.
  • cut introduction to C3PO. (He ends up being just another droid in this trilogy.)
  • recut Skywalker dinner scene
  • cut Anakin working on the racer
  • cut "midi-chlorians"
  • cut Qui-Gon using the force to win the die roll

  • cut Obi-Wan thanking Qui-Gon for believing he is ready for the trials
  • cut "No, I beg you to help us"
  • cut Jar-Jar being promoted
  • reworked final battle, changes include: no Gungan stupidity, no grapple hooks, and Anakin doesn't accidentally save the day (in fact, Anakin doesn't even go into space)
  • cut Qui-Gon's dying speech to Obi-Wan
  • cut end celebration

Interesting to finally see a cutlist!

So about R2 and 3PO, are they supposed to be different droids, or are they the same and just on the sidelines?

Well I know a change that many edits have made is having Anakin saving the day be intentional instead of accidental.

Well, in this cut he doesn't even go into space so in that regard I think its unique.

Its impossible to remove them from some shots completely. As to whether they are the same droids or different I suppose thats up to the viewer. They are never referenced by name, and they don't have any major roll, but they are there like other droids, helping when needed.

You're probably right. I'd have to defer to Frink's Cutlist as I too have not seen many of the prequel fanedits that are out there.

I don't remember another edit where he stays on the planet. It's a really cool bit of editing.

Looks very cool!

My only question: How many times does Anakin say, "Are you an angel?" ;)

None. If you want to be tortured by that line might I suggest The Ridiculous Menace? :)

Based on the workprint, I must say the handling of the Padmé meets Anakin scene in this edit is the absolute best I've seen.

Yep. I was actually referring to TRM with tongue in cheek. I'm sure that Anakin talks about angels far less in your version. :)

Originally (thinking of the trilogy as a whole), I was going to ask how many times Padme says, "I'm a senator." But since Ep. I is kind of the focus of this discussion, I thought it might confuse people if I put that down.

Basically, what I'm trying to get at is this: I'm looking for parts for a J Type 327 Nubian. :p

This is probably the most excited I've been for any Star Wars fanedit, ever! (Including ANH:R or ESB:R!)
Thank God I bought the Blu Rays day 1. Still haven't watched 'em though :lol: no time, there's just no time :(
I don't care what format it gets released in, I'll still download :)

Except for the "day 1" part, I'm in the exact same boat.
