The aim of this edit is to tighten up the pacing a bit, remove some of the unnecessary political aspects, and cut down on the hinting that Lando and L3 have a sexual relationship. Cut list is as follows:

  1. Cut expository title cards after “A long time ago…”
  2. Faded in the music from the cut title cards leading up to Han jump starting the landspeeder
  3. Cut main “SOLO” title card
  4. Cut children arguing over junk stolen for Mother Proxima
  5. Cut entire Mother Proxima scene. We now jump straight from Han and Keira to the landspeeder chase sequence. We just assume that the guys Han stole the coaxium from have caught up with him.
  6. Added subtitles to better match the OT
  7. Reinserted the “Corellian Chase” deleted scene.
  8. Cut Han’s whining “Kiera! I’ll come back for you!”
  9. Cut Han’s line “…the best in the galaxy.” when he tells the imperial officer that he wants to be a pilot.
  10. Added Han’s theme music once he is accepted into The Empire to lead into new titles.
  11. Added new title card displaying the name of this edit.
  12. Reinserted part of the “Cadet Solo” deleted scene.
  13. Removed subtitles when Han speaks in the Wookie language.
  14. Cut down some of Rio’s comedy during the campfire sequence
  15. Removed Beckett giving Han the DL-44
  16. Cut down on Rio’s comedy during the train sequence.
  17. Tightened up the train sequence a bit
  18. Removed Rio’s last words “…it’s not good to die alone.”
  19. Tightened up Mal’s death. She now just says “It’s been a ride babe…” before her death.
  20. Removed weird singer from Vos sequence that looked too much like something from Dr. Who
  21. Removed Lando’s “thanks love” to the robot pouring his drink.
  22. Cut down the overt droid politics from L3 in the bar.
  23. Cut L3 asking the crew to not look at her when she cuts the fence.
  24. Cut “equal rights” comment from L3
  25. Trimmed conversation between Kira and L3 so we don’t believe that Lando and L3 have sexual relationship 🤨
  26. Cut L3’s “I’m so glad we took this job!” line and any other droid rights/freedom comments.
  27. Trimmed Lando’s reaction to L3’s death.
  28. Cut Darth Maul.

As of right now this is just a personal edit. I have yet to upload it anywhere and with the holiday weekend I won’t likely have it up until next week. But I wanted to at least let everyone know it’s gonna be in the wild soon.

Edit:
A 2gb tiny encode version is now available. If you are interested in this edit, please pm for a link.

Nice Jackpumpkinhead,
All of fixes here look good tba I don’t mind this not having a crawl as its “A Star Wars Story” and not “THE Star Wars Story” which goes well alongside the original Rogue One. 👍

Is it locked down now or are you still thinking of any more editing?
