Brief Synopsis:
This is a simple extended edition of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It includes the deleted subplot featuring Mon Mothma and Bail Organa, and Yoda's arrival on Dagobah. Additionally, I've made an alternate version of this that also includes Hal9000's revised ending from his Labyrinth of Evil edit in which Padme survives, plugging an infamous plot hole.
Intention:
This is a little stopgap release, made on my way to actually fan-editing Episode III. I noticed no one's done an extended version of this film in HD, so I've gone ahead and done that, since someone watching the film next to Rogue One might appreciate the scenes with Mon Mothma and Bail Organa in particular.
Other Sources:
- Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith official Blu-Ray
- Deleted scenes upscaled by Hal9000, taken from the official DVD
Special Thanks:
- Hal9000 for his upscaled deleted scenes and alternate ending
- The_Cutter for the original idea of the alternate ending.
Release Information
AVI/MKV
Cuts and Additions:
The following scenes are included:
- A Stirring in the Senate (Bail's Office)
- Seeds of Rebellion (Padme's Apartment)
- Confronting the Chancellor (Palpatine's Office)
- Exiled to Dagobah

I didn't want to reinsert any scenes that had unfinished effects or repeated dialogue that already appears in the film, so the following scenes are NOT included (any Blu-Ray deleted scenes):
- Grevious Slaughters a Jedi: Escape from the General
- A Plot to Destroy the Jedi?
any Blu-Ray deleted scenes

Also included is an optional secondary audio track that includes two minor changes:
- Yoda's communion with Qui-Gon is restored using dialogue from The Clone Wars (from Hal9000s edit)
- Vader's anguished exclamation of Noooo!!!! is replaced with an anguished yell. (also from Hal's edit)

The alternate ending includes the following changes:
- A scene of Yoda communicating with the departed Qui-Gon Jinn is restored using audio from The Clone Wars
- Faneditor Hal9000's own voice replaces that of the medical droid. His prognosis is not that Padme is dying, but rather that she will survive without ever fully recovering.
- Replaced Vader’s scream with the Russian dub, arguably making it a little less cheesy.
- Courtesy of Hundsdorfex, replaced shot of Tantive IV descending toward Naboo with the ship streaking through space.
- Trimmed dialogue aboard the Tantive IV to accommodate the idea that Padmé survives to travel to Alderaan with Leia.
- Replaced Padme's funeral with the deleted scene of Yoda arriving on Dagobah.
- Padme is seen cradling an infant Leia on Alderaan, using footage from The Other Boleyn Girl, with her eye color corrected by Hundsdorfex. (Idea by 'The Cutter,' also used in Q2's edit.)
