Synopsis:

The Legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett navigates the underworld of the galaxy with mercenary Fennec Shand when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory formerly ruled by the deceased crime lord Jabba the Hutt.


Intentions:

This one is a fairly simple edit. I just took all the chronological scenes and placed them in this one timeline to continue the series that follows on from The Mandalorian – Chapter I” storyline (See other posts for more details).



Change List:

• Insert Fanedit warning • Add new old ben Kenobi trailer. • Insert Intro MR logo • Insert intro logo from BoBF Ep.1 • Add “A Long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….” • Insert post credit scene from Mandalorian S02E08. I’m not a big fan of Star Wars now taking on the post credit scene style like Marvel plus it makes for a great opener to this Chapter. • Add score intro from BoBF Ep.1 • Fade out score • Add New The House of Boba Fett Logo Intro • Add “Chapter I – A Stranger Returns” title card • Add BoBF Intro music • Fade out score • Dip to black • Insert BoBF Ep.1 scene with Boba in the Bacta tank. I feel this would be the first thing Boba would do after taking of Jabba’s Palace. • Fade to white • Remove Sarlacc pit flashback as it was using in our BoBF Chapter I edit. • Continue with Fennec waking Boba up from his Bacta sleep. • Fix audio transition to hide cut • Remove Boba saying “I’m the crime lord, he’s supposed to pay me” Another example of Disney treating the audience like idiots. We know! • Remove Boba saying “I do not torture!” Why would he say this? It makes him look weak. • Remove Fennec saying “They’re used to seeing The Hutt paraded around the streets” This contradicts what Fennec says later about The Hutts not getting out much. • Fix background noise to hide cut • Remove Garsa Fwip saying “Because it is yours now”. I don’t feel that Boba owns the bar, more he is paid protection money to keep it running. Also seems weird that Garsa just gives it over without any proof of Bib being killed. • Far too many edits in the fight scene but I removed clunky camera shots, sped up punches, trimmed bad choreography • Add blood gush to Assassin getting his throat cut by Gamorrean Guard. On frame by frame look, you can see a huge gash in the assassins neck so it felt right to add a lot of blood here. Most weapon attacks are cauterized by a lightsaber but Gamorreans have more primitive weapons thus creating the spirt. • Speed up entire scene of Assassins jumping on the rooftops by 8%. This whole thing felt slow and oddly paced. • Fix score over newly sped up scene. • Remove camera shake as Fennec clearly hits the crash pad after she jumps. Lol • Dip to white after Boba is dragged into the Bacta tank • Remove another flashback used in previous Chapter. • Insert Fennec walking up to Jabba’s Palace in BoBF Ep.2 • Fix score transition • Remove BoBF title card • Dip to black • Fix score transition to hide cut. • Remove awful Droid made from a garden water butt. Seriously Disney, WTF? • Remove Boba talking Huttese. Having him remain silent shows he has the upper hand and isn’t fazed by the Hutts arrival. Boba talk far too much in the series so I’m making him a more for a silent, calculated killer again. • Insert Boba saying “Say your piece”. A man of few words but very direct. • Remove Boba saying “You can bring as many Gladiators as you wish…” Again, Boba staying silent makes him look stronger and builds more tension within the scene. • Fix background noise and score to hide above cuts. • Remove Wide shot of Boba saying “This territory is mine”. • Add wide shot of The Hutts. These small changes give an uncomfortable stand off for a brief moment. • Re-add Boba’s dialogue “This territory is mine”. To break the silence. • Re-add the wide shot of Boba • Fix audio to hide cuts above. • Remove Boba saying “Your cousin Jabba is dead… All that’s his belongs to me now” This is another example of Disney treating the audience like idiots and helping them keep up with the story. • Cut to Boba saying “your sister is right!” • Remove the rest of BoBF Ep.2 as used in previous Chapter • Fix score transition • Fade to white • Remove intro credits to BoBF Ep.3 • Remove Boba saying “this is the first I’m hearing of it” once again, keep silent to show strength. People in power don’t need to explain themselves to commoners • Remove Water farmer saying “To make them even more deadly” This gives the Mods a far too big of a build-up, which only leads to disappointment. Removing this just keeps them as menacing kids. • Rearrange shots with the Mods to give an uncomfortable silent after Dank said her piece. • Fix score and background noise to hide above cut. • Cut to water farmer saying “No, No, No ,No…” • Remove Ep.3 title card • Fix audio transition • Remove Bantha flashback straight after Baby Boba flashback. • Fade to white • Fix audio transition • Cut to Boba waking up in Bacta tank • Fix score transition • The fight between Black Krrsantan and the Mods has too many edits but again, I sped up punches, rearranged shots, removed awkward and fixed sound • Remove Boba saying “I need to respond…” and following speech while sitting at the table. Speaking too much again • Remove Fennec saying “have some food”. She sounds like his mother. • Cut to Boba quietly thinking to have a pause for thought. i.e. subtly showing he’s calculating. • Remove wide shot of Fennec with her feet on the table with a close-up of Boba. Weird editing choice in the original. We should see Boba react to Fennecs words here. • Remove Boba asking “Can I?” He shouldn’t need permission to do what he wants. • Remove Boba saying “I think he likes this!” Less words Boba! • Remove Boba saying “Is this the spot?” This is just weird! • Remove Fennec saying “Do you want the appointment or not?”. He constantly back chatting Boba makes him look weak. • Ok, This Mod speeder chase was cringe so I’ve shortened the whole scene, removed parts that just felt off and fixed the score. • Remove outro credits • Remove intro credits for Ep.4 • Remove Entire Tatooine flashback where Boba meets Fennec. Used in previous Chapter • Fade to white • Cut to Boba in Bacta tank for Bib’s flashback • Fix score transition • Remove Boba from Krrsantan’s bar fight. He’s supposed to be paid protection money but he just stands there and does nothing? • Add Boba walking in after krrsantan fight is over. • Remove Rat catcher comical shot. This breaks tension within the scene. Keep it there to let the story marinate. • Add Movies Remastered outro credit text. • Insert outro credits from Episode 2. • Add MR logo to end credits. • Add MR Disney Saber logo to end credits.
