When do you think your edit of the film will be released, Dominic?

I recently extracted all the audio from The LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens video game, looking for Kylo stuff that could be useful in a “Rey nobody” edit. Unfortunately it seems like either the extraction went wrong or all the files are just mislabeled, because stuff labeled Kylo Ren is clearly not. However, if I can find them, there are some cool lines here that could be useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1g_udRtF1Y
“I can feel it in you, I can feel the darkness”
“Embrace the darkness”
“Surrender to it”
“Feel it course through your veins”
“You could command armies”
“You could bring planets to their knees with your merest whim”
Unfortunately it’s all “unmasked Kylo” so it would need to be processed with a filter.

Octorox, you’re the man!

I’m not sure if Dom has shared it on his thread, but I know he played around with using some of the TFA dialogue (but extracted from that YouTube video I think). So you having it all will be immensely helpful. I also think having Carrie’s dialogue might be useful to have Leia say a few extra tidbits when her mouth is off-camera.

EDIT: I think he did use some of those lines in one of his clips!

Thanks for sharing all of that! Do you know if there are any lines for Leia as well?

I believe so, although I’m not sure if they will be useful.

Oh really? I must have forgotten or totally missed that you did that.

I have mentioned this before but it would be nice to make Leia a little more talkative.

For example, when Rey tells Leia she is going to look for the wayfinder and Leia says no, you could have Leia start saying why she disagrees, then have Rey interrupt her. So something like, “No, we need-“. The way it is now, Leia just says no, then stands there silently without giving Rey an explanation. I think it would just help make it feel like a real conversation rather than a mad lib experiment.

Another idea would be to give Leia an extra line when she hands the saber back to Rey. Something like, “This is yours”, “Keep it”, etc. I know Dom had the idea of having Rey say, “I will earn your family’s saber”. If you did that, it would be cool to have Leia say, “You are family.” It would also be a nice set up for Rey taking the name Skywalker later, and it would feel more like Leia gave her her blessing to take the name at that point. Maybe we could piece lines together Carrie interviews if we can’t find suitable Leia lines anywhere.

There are a few other places too, like Leia could say something like, “Good luck” when she gives Rey the saber to run the training course, or when Rey starts saying, “Didn’t finish the training course. Got distracted.” It would be nice if Leia said something first like, “What happened?” or “What’s wrong?” Because at first it just feels like Rey is talking to herself.

Anyway, I would just like to see a few extra lines for Leia if it can feel natural.

Or, more simply, Leia could say “No, it’s too dangerous.”

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

Totally agree! It’s exactly what I had in mind, too. The tricky part is just finding something similar to that. But if we can’t, we really could have her start saying anything if Rey interrupts her before we get the full context.

Did Carrie voice Leia for the game?

I think most of the actors voice their characters in LEGO TFA, including Harrison Ford.

“I will earn your family’s saber, one day.”

“You are family.”

If only we had a good source for that. That would’ve been nice.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

It was after Rey returns from Starkiller and is looking at R2, there’s an off-screen conversation between Poe and Leia where he mentions the Hosnian System. It was my attempt at naming the system somewhere, but it’s super subtle.

Sorry to unnecessarily bump this thread, but is there any chance of a workprint or similar of the “95% complete” version you mentioned recently, Dom?

I hate to further push these repeated requests for a word of progress from Dom, as I’m sure he has a life outside of this site. (unlike me…) But if this were to be released as a final version before Hal’s ascendant, it could mean that his ‘Rey Nobody’ cut may be able to be released simultaneously with his regular cut! 😱

Re: the job I started… very time consuming. Will try to get back to work on this soon.

I think this version of the Death Star fight and Leia’s death is my favorite out of the ones I’ve seen, the music works perfectly here!

I hope we’ll get to see your edit soon, Dominic! Take care and stay safe out there.
