Brief Synopsis:
This fanedit condenses Star Wars Episode I-III into a single cohesive movie. Jar Jar Binks’ screen time and dialogue is greatly reduced, Young Anakin character is more bearable now with less dialogue, Anakin and Padme's relationship is now more innocent than disturbing, and this edit includes a NEW vision sequence for Anakin as he contemplates joining the Dark Side in the Jedi Council Chambers.
Intention:
The Star Wars prequel trilogy is often handed down harsh criticism and gets discarded too easily for all sorts of grievances. So I wanted to create a fanedit that removed all those distractions and instead, embraces George Lucas' realm of fantasy/CGI overkill madness openly and give it a stronger storyline arc for Anakin and Palpatine, highlighting the Sith doctrine known as The Rule of Two.
Additional Notes:
I left in some groan-worthy scenes and lines that I know a few Star Wars fans dislike, only because I want anyone who's watching Star Wars for the first time to endure some of those moments too and form their own judgement on them.

This is all in all a good edit with few issues. I'm no fan of the Star Wars franchise and the three movies originally were for me were a drag fest haha. You made it into tolerable 200min ... it could go for even lower timerun, Cuts and transitions are very good . Great work removing jar-jar and its a shame you removed the Jedi Temple massacre! And finally quality of video could be better I'm watching on 70inch Tv .

Thanks for the edit and good luck on next projects !
