I get what you’re trying to do with the end battle over Yavin but there are two problems.

  1. Some of the ships are clearly just blocks.
  2. 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.
