Can Iron Man buy me a fly swatter now?
After reading a similar "prequel changes" thing, I decided to try my hand at doing them. If you like it, please tell me and give feedback. This is important, as now the destruction of Alderaan will mean even more later in the saga.
The Mandolorians take the place of the Trade Federation. Anyway, Qui-Gon and Obi Wan first go to the Mandolorian flagship for a checkup on the Alderaan system and to moderate the negotiations between the two parties. But the Mandolorian general, Pre Vizla, is instructed to do otherwise by Darth Sidious, who orders that the Jedi be terminated and the Mandolorians launch a full scale assault on Alderaan.
The resulting action is exactly the same as the movie, with Qui Gon and Obi Wan stowing away on a Mandolorian transport ship.
The Jedi arrive on Alderaan in the wrong place because of this, and realize they have to get to the other side of Alderaan to warn the people that the Mandolorians are going to attack. Also, Jar Jar speaks like the other gungans, with a low voice and less gibberish vocabulary. Nass informs them that Jar Jar lied.
The crew lands on Tatooine for repairs. Obi Wan, Qui Gon, and Padme all go on the expedition. Jar Jar stays on the ship instead of Obi Wan. Anakin is 17, the same age as Padme. By this time, Qui Gon has figured out that Anakin is very force sensitive, and not with Midichlorians, but rather with some sort of testing similar to the one that Obi Wan gives Luke in A New Hope.
Qui Gon keeps insisting that Anakin is the most powerful person with the Force in several hundred years, thoroughly annoying Obi Wan. For the fan service, he stumbles into the famous Cantina and has a very similar scenario as that of Luke 32 years later: Obi Wan thanks Padme, and the two hit it off.
He makes a bet with Watto, asking that Anakin race in the next Podrace, as both a way to get them off Tatooine, and a way to show Obi Wan up and prove that Anakin is talented with the Force. If he wins, Watto keeps the prize money, the money from selling the Podracer, and in exchange, Qui Gon gets the part they need for the ship, and the freedom of Anakin and his mother.
Watto argues, and a similar situation as that in the movie occurs. Watto is initially hesitant, worrying that Anakin is human, compromising his ability to react in time, but Qui Gon just smiles.
Obi Wan is also pleased with the arrangements, as the name Sebulba was dropped, and Obi Wan wants to see Sebulba lose. Anakin wins the podrace. After freeing Anakin and retrieving the part to head back to the ship, they are attacked by Darth Maul.
They get away, but Qui Gon is horrified and worried that Maul is a Sith. No more mention of the Sith is given. Upon arriving at Coruscant, they are greeted by Palpatine. The Council speaks only with Qui Gon, and is insistent that Anakin should not be trained.
The irritation Obi Wan has with Anakin is evident. This is our official introduction to the nature of the Sith. The scene cuts to Qui Gon inside the chamber, talking with the Council over the likelihood of the figure being a Sith. More information is given, and it is referenced that Yoda fought in the last war with the Sith when he was just a Padawan.
Cut to boring Senate stuff. Nothing is resolved, the scene is similar to that of the canonical movie. Just no votes of "no confidence in Valorum.
The Jedi and Alderaanian refugees decide to go back to Alderaan. Anakin is left behind at the Jedi Temple, where he is to be decided on later.Jan 31, · Like it or not, Lucas' versions are the versions that have, and they are part of the Star Wars saga.
Personally, I think the stories are brilliant in all three films. Sure, I could do with less Jar Jar, and some of the dialogue could be better.

Much of this is inspired by many people’s unique ideas, but most of the borrowed ideas are based off of Belated Media’s What if Star Wars Episode I and Episode II Were Good? videos, which are awesome, but still not exactly the same.

This is a rebellion, isn’t it? I rebel. — Rogue One character Jyn Erso, continuing the sad new Star Wars emphasis on “girl power” in a world where men do basically all the heavy lifting.
Rogue One, due for release in December this year, is the first of several planned Star Wars spinoff films. And, like its trilogy predecessor The Force Awakens, which Return of Kings boycotted, this new.
