T-Bone presents his first fanedit, Star Wars - The Epic Picture
This is a mix that takes from a number of films and TV shows featuring various actors from the Star Wars films. An attempt to retell the story from "A New Hope", something that we are all very familiar with, and turn it around completely to make it into a whole new story.
(A Bridge on the River Kwai, Force 10 From Navarone, Rasputin: The Mad Monk, and many others)
Set over the course of 120 years, this film looks at the motivations and pasts
of several seemingly unconnected characters who are kicking about the Star Wars universe, explores how different political factions and militias cope against impossible odds in a seemingly unwinnable war, armed with archaic weapons and equipment, and what the consequences could be should they fail.
This is a Star Wars without lightsaber duels, one where the force itself is only
mentioned in passing, Obi-Wan Kenobi is suffering from communist inspired
delusions and Grigori Rasputin might well be controlling the biggest
and most powerful army in existence.
"What started out as a vague idea on a drunken night, became the epic that I ended up with here.
There are loads of Star Wars edits out there. I had no desire to make a slightly different version of the actual films. Rather, I wanted to make something completely different, yet strangely familiar. To use footage and characters that we know and give them new backgrounds, motivations, relationships and futures. "
