Intention: Completing the Fall of the Jedi trilogy, Episode 3 continues with the deletion of R2D2 and C-3PO, and removing bad dialog and acting. Even more extreme, the final battle between Yoda and Palpatine has been removed as well as Padme giving birth (and dying).

  • trimmed crash landing
  • trimmed Anakin and Obi-Wan talking after dropping off Palpatine
  • cut Padme watching from the shadows, and Anakin rushing to her to learn she's pregnant
  • cut Grevious landing on Utapau and talking to the Emperor
  • cut Anakin and Padme balcony scene
  • cut Anakin talking to Yoda about his dreams
  • added scene discussing a possible rebellion
  • trimmed Anakin confessing his concerns about the Jedi to Padme
  • trimmed Kashyyyk battle
  • "I have trained you since you were a small boy…"
  • trimmed Obi-Wan going to confront Grevious and ensuing battle
  • cut "I sense a plot to destroy the Jedi."
  • trimmed scene of Anakin and Padme staring across the city to each other
  • tweaked Jedi confrontation and battle with Palpatine

  • cut "And so it is."
  • cut Obi-Wan swimming to safety
  • cut Yoda leaving Kashyyyk

Heh. Yeah, I saw that just after I posted. This one was higher up on the list, shortly after Ep. 3, so I didn't see that one at first. Oops. :p

There will be a one week delay in this release. I'm waiting on "Marvins" from OT.com to send me a French audio track. I should have it by early next week, but the problem is I will be out of town from next Wed. through Mon. so I won't be able to build discs and get things uploaded until the first week of Aug.

However, I have completed Return of the Jedi: A Q2 Fanedit Remastered and it will be up by mid-week. PM me if you're interested and I will provide you with an NZB.

(appreciative whistle) That artwork is some gorgeous stuff! Much better than the official Lucasfilm packaging.

Did you do that yourself, Q2, or was that contributed by another member? I thought I remembered that QuickCut did your first two, but I may be confusing your edit with someone else's.

Also (and this is highly inconsequential, I realize), the box art says PG instead of PG-13 as it was for the original edit. Was that just done out of habit (since all the other films are PG), or does that actually reflect choices made in the edit (that is, anything PG-13 is gone from this edit)?

Either way, it looks cool on the box art, so I'd just leave it that way if I were you. :)

That's all QuickCut.

Yeah... PG was accidentally used for one of the covers. QC knows about it, but he's been busy so I left it alone. Not a big deal, but the stuff that made ROTS PG-13 is still in my cut.

Whoops. It'll be a quick fix.

A couple people have reported that Part 23 (RAR) of the Blu-Ray version is corrupt. This is not a usenet issue but, rather, a glitch when creating the RAR files. (My master copy is corrupt, too.) If you are experience problems PM me and I'll send you a link to download Part 23. I am currently re-uploading Part 23 to usenet so future downloads should not have this problem. Sorry about that!
