Week of February 11th, 2024 – New Fanedits

8 new fanedits this week:



Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace – Spence Final Cut


Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones – Spence Final Cut


Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith – Spence Final Cut

“After 15+ years of noodling, I’ve finally landed on a version of the prequels that I prefer. The main concept is to fix AOTC, the weakest link that brings down the other two, and make TPM lead into it, and ROTS build from it.”



Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi – The Fox Cut by TheFoxMan

“Using Hal9000’s edit as my baseline, I wanted to mainly fix the Leia Mary Poppins scene by making it appear Luke saves her by using The Force. This required a major reshuffling of scenes to make this work. Now Luke has one more heroic moment saving her sister rather than the ridiculous scene we got in theaters.”



Watchmen 2009: The Squid Cut by TriggeredPuppy

“As we approach the 15th anniversary in March 2024, I’m immensely excited to release this new version of the 2009 Watchmen movie. At first, it sounded simple. Just add the squid back in. But I decided it was really an opportunity to expand the movie beyond that. Using voice cloning and footage from the 2019 sequel miniseries, I was able to add back in major plot points from the comic. And by inserting nearly the entire Under the Hood feature as an in-world 60 Minutes type interview, I’ve expanded the world and story significantly.”



Creepshow 2: Creepier Edition by The Wanderer

“As a huge fan of the original Creepshow, I’ve always been disappointed by the sequel. For one thing, it only has three stories instead of the original film’s five. And the lack of original composer John Harrison’s iconic score didn’t help. This FanMix adds a story and the original Creepshow theme, as well as reordering the stories and trimming one to improve pace, to bring Creepshow 2 up as close as possible to the standard of its predecessor.”



The Lion King: Definitive Edition by strangecalenders

“The Lion King has be released on home media several times over, with changes being made along the way. Many of these changes were for the better, but some of them were for the worse. This fanedit of the film serves to take some of the better changes from earlier releases of the film and add them back into a more high quality, later edition copy of the film. Also included are more songs!”



Captain Planet & The Planeteers: A Love Story by Zarius

“I decided to do a little fun A.I-assisted follow up my last Captain Planet edit by adding or ‘altering’ scenes from various episodes to give the show something of a vintage TV trope: The hero and the baddie having a flirtatious love/hate relationship. Since one for Doctor Blight and Planet didn’t exist in the show, I had to make it up myself!”
