Did Topher Grace fix the Star Wars saga?

03.07.2012

He may forever be associated with the failure that was SPIDER-MAN 3, but Topher Grace will always remain a geek at heart.

News broke today that Topher Grace premiered his own redux of the STAR WARS prequel saga, something that all of us film nerds have dreamt about doing.  We live in an age where posting fan fiction and film edits is not a rarity, but when a celebrity undertakes such a project it garners notice from the mainstream media.

STAR WARS EPISODE III.5: THE EDITOR STRIKES BACK premiered at an undisclosed location in Hollywood where invitees included actors, actresses, writers, and other filmmakers.  Not quite the typical crowd for a fan film.

The original article breaks down the vast changes and edits that result in an 85 minute version of George Lucas' series but here are some highlights:

  • Jake Lloyd's "Annie" is completely gone.
  • Jar Jar Binks is reduced to a single line.
  • The word "clone" occurs once.
  • Darth Vader never says "Nooooooooooooooo!"

I for one hope that George Lucas embraces experiments like these and maybe some day we will get to see the fruits of Grace's labor. For now, only that select group has had a chance to see his edit.

Either way, it can't get any worse than what is officially released, right? Check out what could, quite possible, be the worst STAR WARS trailer ever made.

Extra Tidbit: Personally, if I were to edit a film series into a single movie it would have to be EMMANUELLE.

Topher should have replaced Hayden in his version.

It's been years since I've seen the first 2. What the fuck is Jake Lloyds Annie?

Why did I get thumbs down for saying I was watching The Phantom Edit?.....I didn't bad-mouth it. Was it because it was a neutral rating? Probably so. I'll of course get thumbs down now since it's in red.

Check out The Phantom Edit. It's very well edited. Only about 9 minutes or so removed from the original, but more importantly, most of Jar Jar Bink's dialogue has been removed, as well as Anakin saying "Yippeeeee".

Not a huge SW fan, but Topher Grace just shot up in my cool book.

Hopefully it surfaces, but wasn't Topher in the running for Anakin? There was Christensen, Colin Hanks, and Topher Grace, right?

I'm watching The Phantom Edit and Jar Jar talks quite a bit. He doesn't only have one line.....I guess he only has one line in STAR WARS EPISODE III.5: THE EDITOR STRIKES BACK, not The Phantom Edit.

Yeah, they're two different entities. Go to Wikipedia and type 'Star Wars Phantom Edit' and you'll see the info to the one I'm referring too. It came out in about 2001 or so if I remember right.

Am I the only one tired of people bitching about Spiderman 3. Personally I love all the Spiderman movies. Sure I have some issues about all of them, but Spiderman was not a failure or terrible.

They got it right?

I knew there was a decent picture in there somewhere. Just having Jar Jar doing one line is good enuff for me. "Meesa no fair!"

Yeah, I'll be looking to get my hands on that one, once it makes the rounds. The Phantom Edit was originally done back in 2001 or so, and Attack Of The Phantom was made in about 2006 or so. They can both be looked up on Wikipedia.
