Go To

The Blackened Mantle is a Japanese Star Wars Fan Edit that combines the three prequel films (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith) into one.

Tropes different from the vanilla prequel films include:

  • Anachronic Order: One of the edit's defining traits is that the first two prequels are told as flashbacks.
  • Alternate Universe: See Robotic Psychopath below
  • Compressed Adaptation: The film has most of it's 150 minute running time from Revenge of the Sith, with the rest as flashbacks.
  • Death by Despair: Averted, as Padme dies from being force-choked by Vader.
  • Opening Scroll: Averted, as the first thing we see is the duel with Darth Maul. After that is Obi-Wan agreeing to train Anakin, then the film cuts to the battle over Coruscant.
  • Recursive Translation: The film places retranslated English subtitles inside the picture.

  • Robotic Psychopath: Darth Maul gets rebuilt as General Grievous after his supposedly-fatal fall in The Phantom Menace.
