Is there a fan edit removes 3rd flashback? (Luke-Ben)

Hello there. I’m new here and i try to find my canon last jedi movie 😄 I’m sorry if there is a special topic where we will ask our general questions about fan films.I’m new here and couldn’t find it.

I don’t like Last Jedi’s Luke. Especially I hate scene which Luke activate lightsaber while Ben sleeping(Last(3rd) flashback). And I don’t know why most of edits include this scene(I watched 10-15 edits). If I made an edit(maybe in future), this would be the first scene I delete. I search edits which delete this scene or revise (for example put 1st flashback to last) Are there fan edits delete or revise this scene? I’ll be glad if you can help me 😄

But that’s the ‘real’ version of what happened. It’s kind of a key resolution to that plot element. Though if you delete it, leaving only the two less accurate recollections, I suppose that would add an interesting amount of additional ambiguity.

I have seen a tweak to it here (I don’t recall who by, sorry) where it was adjusted to have Luke explicitly turn his saber off before Ben struck at him, making it clearer that Luke wasn’t going to attack him, which might be the sort of thing you’re looking for.

If I remember correctly that was an idea put forward in the ST Radical Redux thread. I know someone started working on it, but I don’t know if they ever finished it. (I hope they did/do, though!)

Yes, I was talking about something like that. It would be great if someone who knows Edit’s name can tell me name.

By the way, I saw an edit that changed the 1st and 3rd flashback. I liked it. I looked to see if it was posted here but couldn’t find it. I guess he is not a member of the forum. I’ll put it here for those who are curious. (He added the download link under the youtube video) https://youtu.be/H_rmGJcmsGE

That was me

Not very impressive, you don’t ever see the blade actually retract, but if I made a fanedit of TLJ I’d be satisfied. If OP or anyone else finds this interesting they’re welcome to use it, I’ll render a higher bitrate version.
