Star Wars: The Ford Awakens [Fanedit]

FORD AWAKENS

I’ve worked out a way of having Han live throughout the entire movie, and he accompanies Rey on her search for Luke at the end.

Changes

– Leia sensing the Starkiller’s attack on the republic
– R2 awakens when BB8 first finds him
– No lightsaber duel with Kylo, Rey, or Finn.
– Planets Daquar and Tokondana are now the same world
– Han and Chewie’s explosives bring down the shields (special credit to Last Impressions for this idea)

Intention:
To give Han a second chance, and hope for a reunion with Luke
Timeline
-First 47 minutes are straight up regular Force Awakens. Changes occur when the falcon escapes the hijackers

-Falcon arrives at Daquar, Finn meets Poe, all references to Rey being captured removed
-R2 awakens, the map to Luke is completed
-Leia and Han argue, Rey finds Luke’s lightsaber and has her vision, this triggers her awakening, Snoke informs Kylo of this, Snoke then learns the location of the Resistance base.
-The Resistance put together their strategy regarding Starkiller base.
-The First Order attacks Daquar, Finn is given the lightsaber
-Footage of Tokunda battle now represents the Daquar invasion
-Starkiller destroys Republic planets, Rey grieves with eia.
-Han, Finn, Rey and Chewie journey to Starkiller,
-Han and Chewie plant bombs, Han confronts Kylo, Kylo ignites his lightsaber off-camera, leaving Chewie no choice but to attack, he then sets off the explosives. The shields are brought down by the explosions.
-Resistance destroy Starkiller base
-Han says goodbye to Leia, tells Rey and Finn all about why Luke dissapeared
-Footage of the Falcon arriving at Tokodana used for the Falcon arriving at Luke’s island
-Ending the same as Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Ford Awakens Samples [Fanedit]

Here are a couple of samples

 

R2 Awakens

 

 

How I worked around keeping Rey on the mission with Han and Finn without being captured. These combined scenes occur just as the First Order begin recharging Starkiller base.

 

 

Han and Chewie set off explosives without confronting Kylo (from a now discarded draft of version one)

Star Wars Rogue One Review And Fanedit Ideas

I’m a tough nut to crack regarding movies with the myth of hype behind them, but this is a cracking good movie.

Is it perfect? No…there’s a really mediocre middle act where you have to wonder “why did they go there?”, but they pick up speed swiftly after and there’s at least a pivotal plot point in it that the protagonists learn of. Everything after that is pure gold. Every action means something, and there is so many boss scenes with Vader that it finally, FINALLY, rinses out the bitter taste of “Nooooooooooo”. James Earl Jones redeemed. Vader redeemed. Make no mistake about it, it puts a whole new spin on A New Hope, that movie really ought to be re titled to “A Stroke of Luck”

That entire third act IS Star Wars. Go see it, just try to make it through the second act and you will be pleasantly rewarded.

 

Now, onto the fanedit ideas

I’d see about possibly removing that entire middle act, you could have Felicity Jones learn about “stardust” another way than from her dad’s dying mouth, I’d actually end her dad’s role when she finds his hologram from Forest Whitaker (and yeah, I’m lapsing on the actual character names, sorry), also I’d minimise the number of times the design flaw in the Death Star is constantly brought up.

-The right transistional effects
-Crawl
-Maybe call it “Episode IV.1”
-More of the classic score
-You really don’t need all the Tarkin scenes.

Star Wars-Force Awakens Test

Thought I’d try something fun with Force Awakens. The idea was to switch certain scenes around to create a more captivating sense of mystery and urgency regarding the situation. I feel opening the movie on Poe’s interrogation is a good way of setting that up, and BB8’s introduction is more interesting to the viewer because we don’t know what this droid is doing out in the desert, finally (and this will require a lot of editing), we show how the horrors of war drives Finn to do the right thing as his squadron rein down destruction on a  village (with Poe and BB8’s involvement removed, this is not reflected in this sample though, it stops just before they land)

Ignore the fact I have no opening text crawl, It’s something I’m very useless at and may request help on it at Fanedit.org.
