TM2YC first fanedit "Star Wars - Episode I: The Phantom Menace: Reborn
" has been approved by the Fanedit Academy and is available for all to enjoy!
This edit tries to make "Star Wars Episode I" a better movie while keeping a "Star Warsish lengh".
"I wanted to make good versions of these films that still felt like the same films in essence.
I've seen other great edits that chop the films down to 90 mins but for me a true SW film should give you around 2 solid hrs of entertainment (And not 2.5hrs either!).
I've achieved this by:-
Trimming action scenes to increase pace. Reworking all major Lightsaber duels. Evaluating and then editing every line of dialogue that I felt didn't work. Adding a few OT music queues. Adding portions of most but not all deleted scenes back in. Removing over-the-top CGI shots and Digi-Doubles.
But most importantly of all I've focused on transforming the characters. In TPM Anakin is brave and an amazing pilot, Padme and The Queen are one character, while Jar-Jar has purpose and is no longer annoying."
