The Last Jedi : Fan Edit Ideas - ** <strong>SPOILERS INSIDE</strong> **

Wacko idea combining both movies:

Why not let Rey go to training before the whole Starkiller thingy is even introduced. Make it a mellow entry to the story where the villain (Kylo) still stays mysterious. She arrives and starts her training after retrieving the lightsaber and having been confronted with Kylo once.

Fast forward 5 years. First order has built starkiller base. Rey is in full training mode. Now, somehow mix together the ship chase and the starkiller thing and the planet being destroyed and rey and kylo having their first lightsaber fight and things suddenly make much more sense. She now has had the training to justify holding up against Kylo a little.

Not sure about the details (would like to include Snoke etc. as well) but that can still be worked out. Lots of stuff would obviously fall away.

That’s an interesting idea. I wonder how well it’d work in practice.

I’m itching for TLJ blu ray to come out so I can see how well a lot of the concepts in this thread work.

I wish Luke, Han and Leia would still be seen together in the ending.
Since it’s much more sad in hindsight in The Force Awakens, since that would be the last time they were together in a main movie.

Why not have the Ewok celebration, the planet celebration, the shot of Han, Luke, and Leia together, and finally the ghosts and then Luke by himself, in that order. That way, everything can still be there.

So, Luke just left Vader’s body chilling on Endor somewhere while he partied with his buddies?

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

lehmike said:

By the way, I was able to download “Star Wars” successfully from the site Ulzo.to.net, but ESB and ROTJ downloaded differently. Where when I extracted for Star Wars it came out as “mt2s” file and worked well with VLC. But ESB came out as “ESB_DESPECIALIZED_v2.0_AVCHD.iso” and I was unable to extract it. And ROTJ came out as “ROTJ_DESPECIALIZED_v2.0_AVCHD.iso”. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m using a mac. But programs that I’m trying to use just aren’t converting it/extracting the files. So any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

What is your goal? To burn to disc or to just watch on your computer? If you’re trying to burn to disc, you’ll need dual layer dvds and those .iso files cal just be written directly onto the disc through disc utility.
If you’re looking to just watch from a video file, you’ll want to track down the mkv versions which should play fine in both VLC and Quicktime.

Harmy, I was trying to find a way to download this amazing piece of work, and someone on youtube is burning these to blu rays and charging $45 for them. LDS Entertainment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwIbM_uS8aA&t=71s

Personally, as just a member here, I’d encourage everyone to downvote that video.

And upvote Harmy’s comment.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwIbM_uS8aA&lc=UgyC29rdY_9WZF6sY614AaABAg

Thank god he commented. It’s been a damn war zone in that comment section. And if he talks shit directly to Harmy, he’s a bigger ass than we even thought.

Dealing with People Selling Fan Projects
Time

BuckNaked said:

I guess I have a slightly different take on this. I’ve had Harmy’s files for years, and don’t see the harm in paying for pressed discs with menus, artwork, etc. I don’t have the skill set or equipment necessary for making nice pressed discs with kick-ass artwork and animated menus.

If there are any members willing to hook me up with a set of physical Harmy discs for the cost of materials and postage, by all means contact me.

The harm: Lucasfilm/Disney only leaves us alone because nobody is profiting and they don’t see us as a threat to their revenue. If they start to see people selling these projects, they may crack down on us harder. It’s also just morally messed up to profit off of other people’s hard work they are providing for free.

Skill: it’s not hard to do. Just need to take a few minutes to learn.

Equipment: really not expensive nowadays.

There may be members willing to do that, but again, I think it’s worth the time and small investment to learn to do it yourself.

The Last Jedi : Fan Edit Ideas - ** <strong>SPOILERS INSIDE</strong> **
Time

I’ve been mulling over how to make Luke’s death less sudden and stupid.
It might be kind of corny but I here’s how I see it playing out:

-Luke comes back from his astral projection thing exhausted. He looks over and sees the ghosts of Yoda, Ben, Anakin. He closes his eyes and vanishes.

It’s a little thing, but I think him looking toward all his deceased mentors as they silently reassure him that he has done what he needs to in this life before he accepts himself into the force would add a lot to the otherwise random death scene.

I would also rotoscope him off the island and have him sitting at the abandoned Lars homestead actually looking into the twin suns instead of just imagining it, his battered x wing in the background (a set up that was never payed off in the movie was showing his x wing in the water).

This is a minor thing, and really more of a TFA edit than a TLJ edit. But I’d end TFA on the wide shot of the resistance waiving goodbye to Rey as she flies away.

Then TLJ begins with Rey arriving at the island. This would allow for more of a time gap between the movies that we’re used to with Star Wars. The amount of time it took for her to get to the island would be ambiguous.

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

Just got around to seeing it today. I’ll save an in depth review/analysis for after I’ve seen it another time or two, but count me in the group of those pretty disappointed in it. Which honestly makes me sad because I expected to enjoy it greatly and loved TFA.

This I believe was the longest SW film to date, and it really shouldn’t have been. There’s a lot I would’ve cut. (Most of the third act I would have cut altogether or saved for IX).

I said a while ago that the Blu_ray/ DVD versions won’t be available until mid next year at the earliest

Thanks, I obviously completely missed that!

Why waiting that long by the way ? I understand that making a full bluray with menu and features takes time, but if the fanedit already exists in high quality I fail to understand why a mkv of the ucompressed version of the edit is postoned to next summer.

The mkv is already out there. I’m not sure what you are referring to here

I think he’s requesting a second MKV be released that matches the bit rate you plan to use on the Bluray.

Otherwise, he’s requesting what we’re all secretly craving, a lossless 10-bit x265 encoded mkv that is an exact representation of what’s on your computer as a finished project, complete with the audio in LPCM. Then everyone can customize/reencode the file on their computer on their own time to fit their target device or media.

I think he is a she, and if you think I’m gonna complete that ROTS quote,

Actually, it’s an AOTC quote.

Exactly.

I’m pretty sure this is the moment for that signal Obi-Wan does stroking his mustache.

An example of actual decent comedy in the prequels.

And of course that’s the one they cut.

I thought the comedy in that scene was terrible, but much like 99% of the attempted comedy in the prequels

Can we please not bring the Prequels up again just to criticize them for the billionth time?

I’m pretty sure i can discuss what the hell i want (inside of the forums rules of course) and have my own opinions on those crap films, in my own damn thread. This isn’t the “you can only discuss what Editroid wants to hear” thread

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

Possessed said:

I hope the shot of the speeder zooming past the camera in the beginning of the mos eisley sequence will mimic the original version more than the SE. If you’re watching it frame by frame the SE looks better, but actually in context of the film and in motion I think the original looks better simply because it zooms fast so quick you don’t realize how fake it looks whereas in the SE it has awkward motion and takes long e enough to notice.

I would suggest Ady redo the shot completely. Both existing versions look very dated.

JEDIT: Also, in one of Mike Verta’s legacy videos he pointed out that in the shot following the Jedi mind trick scene, they chopped off the bottom of the landspeeder for the SE and I haven’t been able to unsee that since, if something could be done about that, while still having it updated from the orange blob under the speeder original, that’d be awesome
