I get what you’re trying to do with the end battle over Yavin but there are two problems.
- Some of the ships are clearly just blocks.
- You cut from one scene where the space represented on the screen has many ships, then in the next scene it has 2-3. What happened to the rest? It’s immediately jarring.
The Mos Eisley scene doesn’t work because the Jedha scene presents a densely populated city with a lot of buildings that are all jammed together. That’s not how the city looks as represented in ANH.
I agree about Jedha and ultimately decided against using that clip.
As for the Death Star battle, we only follow a few pilots - the rest are superfluous - this was the same in the original
cut - “we count 30 rebel ships” … yet, we follow about 7 different pilots. I didn’t change anything other than upgrade a few vfx shots.
