So here’s my take on Finn’s line “They’ve done it”, redubbing it as “They’ve found us”, including animation on the mouth to make it bite together a bit on the “us” rather than the original open mouth “it”.

What do you think?

It’s noticeably an edit but it’s done pretty well. Not quite there but definitely a start.

That’s pretty great - I think some leveling tweaks and you’ve got it. The audio seems to dip a bit on the “found” and then back up…try a subtle tweak to level the audio and I think it’ll make a big difference.

I, personally, think Luke and Vader in the Force vision makes more sense than Zuvio or the Knights of Ren in the vision. Talk about distracting… As viewers, we still have no idea what their relevance is to her tuning in to the Force via the saber. To me, they are just loose ends, which actually adversely affect the movie’s standalone value… but of course I understand how characters like Luke and/or Vader may take some attention away from the “main” character…

I think adding Vader and Luke to Rey’s force vision could be quite cool if done right. I think that was their golden opportunity to actually have Luke and Vader in TFA… something to think about for your edit. Maybe something subtle like this:

I think I am alone, but the Choking on your ambitions line is growing on me.

“Be careful not to choke on your *aspirations(not ‘ambitions’), Director” – hence, the breathing pun… Aspiration: (1) a hope or ambition of achieving something (2) the action or process of drawing breath.

Although I don’t feel like the line is a grand slam, I personally am not bothered by it.

Maybe faneditors can try something more subtle…

An Idea:
-The main crawl’s music will be “Main Title”, Take 18.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzsoNlzHUsQ)
[In the beginning part, you can hear a cresendo]
Since of that cresendo, you can both mix the title card and crawl together.
And for the title card, it can be one of jack’s mockups.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qt3OVPpjAs)

I’m onboard for a title card tweak. Maybe something simple like this… Untitled-1.jpg

I would defo edit the opening.

Remove the jumping planet to planet and titles.

It definitely needs the star wars fanfare and crawl.

Remove the mind reading monster.

Corny jokes removed.

3po r2 cameo removed.

Darth vader choke, didn’t need to show his fingers. And definitely remove the “choking on your ambitions” line that was cringe worthy.

Showing Leia’s face he back was enough.

Vader’s castle removed.

Vader scene(s) removed.

All easter eggs removed.

Stardust references removed.

Soooo basically take out everything Star Wars-related and then add a crawl. Maybe we can replace the space battle with scenes from Red Tails. lol *idea for the ‘Ridiculous’ cut.

I didn’t like the movie mostly because the rebel characters are totally inexistent and underdeveloped (and the alliance representation is lame as ever – rebels who don’t want to rebel because the Empire is too powerful… seriously…) and there is no pacing at all (I’ve never been so bored in front of a SW flick…), but the Empire is not that “damaged” (well, Krennic is too weak for someone called « director » but this is something that can be changed thanks to fanediting), so, instead of a complete reworking of the movie I would suggest to only keep (minus some modifications) the Empire material. No rebels, no Yavin IV, no Erso, nothing, except at the very end when they attack (so no “rebellion are built on hope” bullshit). Just Krennic, Tarkin, Vader, father Erso. Some kind of an one hour prologue to ANH. A few other things could be changed to reference the clone wars when the prologue starts (in an opening crawl, adding that the intro sequence is set a few years after the end of the clone wars and the foundation of the first galactic empire), and it should work. Obviously Tarkin will still be cartoonish and Vader will still be Jason Voorhees (unless the ending sequence is also removed entirely), but I believe it can save a few scenes.

Other idea: why not adding this to the end of a heavily fanedited ROTS version? Or with ROTS material used as flashbacks ?

Soooooo basically everything about it sucks (including Vader in his prime)… but adding references to the prequels OR actual prequel footage will make it better? lol yikes.

I loved RO… the only cringe-worthy moment IMO was when that slime monster came out. Other than getting rid of that thing, I’d say we wait for some of the deleted/unused footage, as I believe there will be a lot - then hopefully, we can really piece together some new versions… OR maybe just add in some ROTS footage 😉

A very minor tweak is required for 100% Line up of Rogue One and Star Wars (A new Hope)

“Several Transmissions were Beamed aboard this ship, I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you?” Original

“Several Transmissions were Beamed aboard a ship, I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you?” Fixed

I feel like this would be a futile ‘fix’… In RO, There was no way for Vader to know for sure which ship received the transmissions (for all he knows, they ALL could’ve gotten it), but after watching the Tantive escape so frantically/deperately, it makes sense he’d assume that was the ship that received them. This would explain the line when he catches up to them in ANH.

Moving on, does anybody else feel like a movie in between ROTS and RO would be a great spot on the timeline for a Vader movie? Possibly show him hunting down the last of the Jedi (alla The Force Unleashed) - also a good opportunity to bring back Palpatine for continuity. I quite like that RO didn’t show the Emperor, as I feel it preserves his ambiguity in ANH… but the Vader movie as a standalone would certainly need some direct “Imperial guidance” at some point for sure. This is the only spot on the timeline I can think of to make a Vader movie happen and it could be great.

Lastly, and I’m 3/4 joking when I say this… Vader’s servant on Mustafar… Secret Apprentice Snoke?? lol

Did you remove Palpatine’s line, “Hence forth you shall be known as Darth…Vader.” from earlier in the film? If not, this scene would contradict that statement. Interesting idea, almost like a psychological break down resulting in a new personality taking over.

For this version, I will take it out from earlier in the movie. He won’t be called Darth Vader until after he fully transitions. And ‘psychological break down’ is exactly what I was going for. thanks for the feedback!

Here’s another idea I was working on for the ending (you can start the video about halfway through). I really like the idea of Palpatine calling him Anakin right after he puts on the suit… “Anakin, can you hear me?” …and then Vader responds by saying “Anakin Skywalker was weak… I destroyed him.” If done right, I think this can be pretty powerful.

(NOTE: I meant tweak the Emperor’s final line in the clip, but haven’t had the time. Bear with me…)

Shit dude. That’s actually badass. Made me a little giddy. I don’t know about the music choice though, seems a little overbearing and triumphant, maybe a more subdued version would be better.

Thanks for the feedback! I was totally going for ‘badass’! I wanted to make Anakin’s transition much more psychological, almost like a split personality taking over… we got a taste of him losing his mind right before the fight on Mustafar, and this is obviously the full transition at this point. Plus, it’s a nod to Obi Wan’s explanation to Luke about his father being ‘betrayed and murdered’ by Darth Vader.

As for the music, I’m going to play with it but I purposely chose tracks that recall the OT… I’ll see what I come up with. thanks again
