With this edit I attempted to distill the Star Wars prequels down to a single movie, that if viewed for the first time would stand on its own and make complete sense to the viewer. My goal was to present the story of Anakin Skywalker in the style of a Shakespearean tragedy, while bending Anakin's character arc from the self serving whiner in the original, to a man corrupted by vaulting ambition and immense power. I recommend viewing FALL OF THE JEDI after episodes IV and V, as if it's an extended flashback, before finishing the Anakin Skywalker saga with RETURN OF THE JEDI. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did editing it!
“Regrets of the Past” The Austrian Star Wars Fanfilm Spoken Language: English Subtitles: German, Spanish, English, Japanese, Portuguese German Version (OV): https://youtu.be/TFyr2ZLM2D0 Making of : https://youtu.be/EOwNrc3Xo2A The short film project "Regrets of the Past" was realized by a team of local filmmakers whose goal it was to create a high-quality sci-fi movie in Austria, based within the Star Wars universe. The crew diligently focused on the visual language of the film which tries to adhere as closely as possible to the original trilogy developed by George Lucas in the 1970s. The story is set after the events that led to the inception of the Galactic Empire (Star Wars - Episode III) and follows the fate of two fugitive Jedi knights. Pursued by a bounty hunter, Pash Sularen and his Padawan Kaila Dain crash on a remote plant and are confronted with their past. Principal photography took place in Austria from 2013 through 2015, followed by one year of post production. The crew of 150 consisted mainly of working professionals in the Austrian film industry who supported the project in their spare time.

Although he never released it to the public, Topher Grace is typically credited with starting the trend of re-cutting the Star Wars prequels into one movie. His fan edit suggested that somewhere in between the bloated films, there’s a good movie. A few fan edits were made in the spirit of Topher Grace’s cut, but none of them fully satisfied me. They went on too long or the quality of the editing wasn’t strong enough. They also cut too much out of Episode 1. I decided to do one myself. After working for a few months with friends to help and give me notes, I’ve created a fan edit that I think satisfies. It sticks to the story of Anakin’s descent into the dark side, his relationship with his mother, his thirst for glory, and his somewhat unhealthy relationship with Padmé.

A fan edit by The Man Behind the Mask that is the sequel to his The War of the Stars edit. It is a mash up of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi with the same gritty effects, new music, and film effects, but this time also with some new optics (read CGI compositing).
I am posting it to YouTube so that more people will see it.
Sorry for some cuts in the audio, I had make some because the video was being blocked everywhere.
