Star Wars - Episode II.V: The Clone Wars
- Star Wars Main title set to a crawl written by yours truly and programmed by our great friend MeBeJedi. It’s a little different in that it uses the animated starfield from the background plate of the opening Clone Wars logo, as opposed to a traditional starfield. It was just my little way of preserving the short animated opening in some tiny fashion. The title card is a bit different, and there is no pan down, but a fade out.
- The sound in Volume 1 is upmixed to surround
- The final shot of Shaak-Ti is removed, leaving her fate more congruous with what happens in the re-edit of Ep III. We hear Mace say her name without moving his mouth, making it an unspoken thought in his head as he realizes she’s been kidnapped.
I really enjoyed the 2003 Clone Wars cartoons so it naturally follows that I enjoyed this edit. There isn’t much editing done here, just putting all the shorts together on one disc, new crawl, deleted one scene. I felt a little more editing should have been done to tighten things up here and there but that’s a minor complaint. Not gonna give really high marks for editing because there were only like 3 cuts.
