Brief Synopsis:
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).
Intention:
Bring the prequel trilogy inline with the original trilogy, allowing for viewers to watch Ep. 1 - 6 in order without key revelations in the OT spoiled early because of the PT.
Other Sources:
The Other Boleyn (2008)
Special Thanks:
Special Thanks to the following for their input on this edit: Dwight Fry, L8wrtr, Neglify, Quickcut, Reave, and TV's Frink.

And to The Cutter for being the first to show Padme alive utilizing footage from The Other Boleyn Girl. I mean no disrespect by borrowing your idea.

A slight improvement of the theatrical cut, but there is too much cut here for me. The continuing removal of R2 and C-3PO is done well, but unlike in Q2's edits of episodes I and II, it felt a little forced here. Not a fan of cutting Yoda vs Palpatine, because it leaves the impression that Yoda and Obi-Wan have done nothing to stop him except kill Anakin. Keeping Padme alive was neatly done, but it led to a bit of an abrupt end.

I love this one so much. Episode 3 is always my favourite, but there is still a lot in it that I don't like. this removes all of that fluff and streamlines it into a cohesive story. I like the reshuffles of various scenes too, it makes more sense this way.

Q2 has done a stellar job and capped off his edit of the prequel trilogy wonderfully. Thanks to his edits I can quite happily sit and watch the PT now without feeling I'm grinding my way through something just to get to something better! Thanks!

Watched this one yesterday evening, and as with the rest of the "Fall of the Jedi" Trilogy, editing is top-notch from all point of views. The feel of the story is heavily improved through the deletion of comedic and distracting elements. Also the Plot was even changed a bit in places where i didnt expect it.
All the editing is invisible (for me at least) and all the choices are really good ones.
As with th other two parts of this trilogy, this edit changes a movie i can only watch on a shallow entertaining level into a Movie i can take serious as a Star Wars movie.

Fine Job again Q2.
