Here’s another attempt at removing the caretakers. It’s better… still not perfect, but it’s as good as I can get it at this sitting.
I don’t have any more time for the present to spend on it, but I think it needs some sort of extra shot between “Let’s get started,” and walking up the stairs. Perhaps a reaction shot from Kylo could be contrived.

Very similar to what I did, works well.

Alright I have a rough cut of the last jedi portion of the edit if anyone wants to test view it. I will be posting the cutlist for it soon. Almost every scene has some short changes like dialogue or shots cut out. Let me know if you would be willing to provide feedback.

A question for VIII Fan Editors

I am doing a 2 in one edit of TFA and TLJ using a 1080p source. Once I finish I will most likely put out just the TLJ portion in 4k. Not HDR my computer can’t handle that sadly.

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

One thing I’ve really wanted to do is see the inclusion of the song “The Jedi Steps” (from The Force Awakens) overlayed with the climatic moment of Luke walking out to confront Kylo Ren and the First Order.

Don’t get me wrong: the existing theme during that scene (“The Spark”) is great. But “The Jedi Steps” gives me chills — it’s the song that introduces us to Luke Skywalker for the first time in the sequel trilogy. Luke the legend, Luke the Jedi Master, Luke returns. That’s why I feel “The Jedi Steps” is so appropriate during the showdown on Crait.

Anyway, I whipped it up in like 10 minutes just to get a feel of what it might look like with this change. This is far from perfect and doesn’t have sound effects or foley, but I’m curious to hear what people think.

I know some people here that are in the 501st/ rebel legion. I know for a fact one of them has a old man luke costume. I’ll see what I can do

New clip coming soon, still working on the TLJ portion haven’t touched TFA besides the ending. Current running time is 3hrs and 44 minuets. I’m pretty sure I can get this to just about 3 hours! I hope to have a very rough draft soon for a few people to test.

I can help build in some sound effects and help with the audio but we might differ in the specifics of how we handle it. Cause personally I want to somehow fit in the music that happens when Luke accepts the saber in the original cut of TLJ. It’s quite good and lines up well.

For me I don’t mind if the music doesn’t line up perfectly, it doesn’t take away from it to much. Personally once this edit is done it will be my “Episode 7” I’m planning on making a new crawl with The Lost Jedi title. I’ve been thinking of doing some re scoring as well. If it would be possible to get battle of the heroes to play during the throne room fight in TLJ would be awesome, as well as getting dual of the fates during the forest battle of TFA.

also if you can’t tell I modified the tfa scene by removing some shots. I’ve muted the audio and just used the Jedi steps score.

Thanks! I can probably use the wide shot that is above the island in TLJ that shows rey walking up then cut to the shot of luke taking it

In the clip I posted I just used the Jedi steps soundtrack as I re arranged some of the scenes/reaction shots. Next I’m going to try and make TFA look as close as I can to TLJ

Yeah I made a mistake with last Jedi as well with the export. I’m re ripping last Jedi now. I accidentally exported the test clip at 30 FPS.
