This is "The Blackened Mantle", a fan edit of the three Star Wars prequels. All voices are taken from the Japanese dub, which accurately represents characters and transmits emphasis. The dub is merely a placeholder and what's on the subtitles has no relation to it: all the dialogue is new and overall better, with a more personal focus: some lines in duels are now about characters rather than tactical conditions. All three movies are sewn together in less than three hours of screentime: Revenge of the Sith is the main line and proceeds in a linear fashion interspersed with flashbacks to the previous two installments. The flashbacks are broadly, but not always, linear, and only some parts of the first two films are shown; each flashback fits within what happens before or after it, sometimes very well.
Some things are omitted for brevity, and others, for real change. A few details are changed for tension, the lore is a bit different, one scene has a different order and a side character gets a plot twist while the main characters get some important differences from the original to increase emotional pressure. Cut footage is used. The overall plot is the same, with a magnifying glass on Anakin Skywalker's tragedy.
It works very well and leads up to a finale that's visually the same (and the visuals are heroic) but emotionally stronger than the original. Not that the original was bad. I think at least Poland will like this.

It's hard to find online, there's my link and another one on Bitchute and that's it.
I took a few excerpts.

From the front page a wrong video embed is shown, though within the catalog and the thread it's right.


>The dub is merely a placeholder and what's on the subtitles has no relation to it
then how the fuck am i supposed to know whats going on


By reading the subtitles.


Reminds me of The Hobbit - Tolkien Edit
So, over the weekend, I decided to condense all three installments (An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies) into a single 4-hour feature that more closely resembled Tolkien’s original novel.


DLd yesterday, I'll watch in sometimes, I dunno when yet.
I'm not a fan of SW. I saw the original trilogy a couple of times, it was good but on the Hungary SW femboyism was never a thing, and I especially wasn't the type either. So I only saw the first released from the new ones, Episode 0 if I number the original trilogy I (Star Wars), II(Empire Strikes Back) and III(Return of the Jedi).


Some images don't show up from the main page but are still there when opened as separate tabs.

Shameful display.


>most recent post is by Bogdan
Yes, I had a little giggle.


>So I only saw the first released from the new ones,
From the 00s prequels or this decade's Disney movies? The latter are a complete waste of time, don't touch them. The former are underappreciated.
Blackened Mantle assumes you've seen the original material, but you might aswell go ahead and watch it without knowing the original as it's a lot less time. There's a risk the non-linear structure can be confusing, but the plot's development will also be more rewarding.


From the 00s prequels. The first with Jar-Jar. Beside them only the original, no Disney at all.


The Phantom Menace is more of a prologue, the famous "machete order" of watching (IV > V > II > III > VI) just skips it because all of its information can be gleamed from the next two installments.
So you'll have surprises and see things for the first time but won't be completely groundless.
