Brief Synopsis:
The Sakaaran Edition aims to create the longest cut of Thor; Ragnarok using all of the legally available material with finished VFX, This cut reinserts the alternate Odin death scene, as originally shown to take place in New York rather than Norway as shown in many early trailers.

Five new alternate, extended and deleted scenes have been reinserted into the film, adding nine minutes of new footage into the film.
Intention:
I wanted to created an alternate cut of the film, with the original Odin death that was seen in the early trailers taking place in New York. The release of the scene in the Infinity Saga boxset prompted me to create something that wasn't really an extended edition fully as it's shorter than the theatrical, but an alternate look at what an early cut of the film could of looked like before the reshot Norway stuff was inserted into the film. This cut also removes Doctor Strange due to the lack of legally available material to show him in this version as the theatrical reshoots have him send Thor and Loki to Norway, as it doesn't work in this new cut.
Other Sources:
- 3D Blu-Ray
- Standard 2D Blu-Ray "Thor Meets the Grandmaster, Skurge Sees Heimdall and Grandmaster and Topaz"
- The Infinity Saga Bonus Disc "Odin in the Alley"
- Promotional Material "Travel to Asgard"
Release Information:
Digital
Special Features
- Deleted and Unused Workprint Scenes
- Alternate and Cut Trailer Scenes
Editing Details:
The 3D Blu-Ray is used as the source for the IMAX sequences. Liberties have been taken to transition in and out of these scenes in a somewhat more seemless way. Not all the IMAX shots have been used as I think the only one left out is some brief shots on Asgard early on that were less than 10 seconds, that didn't justify the ratio shift for me. Other than that, all the IMAX scenes are intact, with the exclusion of the Norway Odin death.
Cuts and Additions:
- Cut Dr Strange's appearence and the Norway visit, as the film goes from straight from Asgard to the NY alley with Odin
- Added extra intro with the Grandmaster
- Added Skurge seeing Heimdall helping Asgardian Refugees, and choosing not to intervene
- Added Grandmaster talking with Topaz about universal symbols
- Moved Grandmaster post-credits scene to after the Revengers take out Topaz
- Trimmed some minor material with the travel to Asgard within the Devil's Anus to accommodate...
- Added Thor and Banner talking about loss on the way to Asgard

This movie is worse than I expected. I had avoided it since it came out because it looked offensively, ridiculously, horribly bad. I'm glad I got my blu-ray secondhand, because I hate it. It is essentially 2 hours of character assassination. Its still nothing like the comics characters and tarnished every character in it. Well, except Heimdall. But Idris Elba is amazing and at least HIS role was allowed to actually have the gravitas the plot needed. If someone made a version in which only Heimdall's scenes were in, that might actually be ok. Whatever.

This edit is extremely well done however. I didn't count off in any category that the fan editor had control over, because the fan-editor did nothing wrong. His work was as impeccable as always. I know that I am not in the majority opinion on this film, so if you like the original, this edit is extremely well done and it seamlessly adds more to the film. There was not a visual or sound issue that I could see and everything went together as if it was always there. I didn't expect that more of this film would make me like it more, but I wanted to try the film at maximum.

EDIT: Oh! I totally forgot, I did really enjoy the inclusion of the New York Odin scene. That was actually better in this version. The other version wasn't necessarily bad (that scene) but the Dr Strange cameo and all that felt kind of forced. This did at least help with that issue. Also, I edited my enjoyment to a 6, it had been a 2... I felt like I was punishing Bobson for this movie being terrible, and again, that is not his fault.

This was an interesting take on the movie. I wasn't even aware there was an alternate death of Odin/entrance of Hela scene. Great work putting this in. One thing, though. This movie is listed as an extended version. However, it's a minute shorter than theatrical. That's the only thing. Keep up the great work Bobson Dugnutt!
