Thanks for doing a regrade on this. Really digging it.

glad you like it! I think the regrade even came out better on this one than on the Clean Cut.

Hey Force,

This is my 2nd favorite TLJ edit. But one thing always bothered in this edit me was the introduction of Rose. She just suddenly appears out of nowhere in the old rebel base wearing a weird jacket. Because there is no backstory for this character it just seems strange that this new character is kind of just there and then she disappears. Would you ever do an edit that shows more of Finn and Rose story? Also, it’s been confirmed Rose will be in Ep9 so it would good to have the consistency of Rose being shown on the MF. I’m not criticizing your edit just wondering if you have considered it.

How about going the other way and completely cutting her out of TLJ? Sure she’s in TROS but there’s a very good chance she can be edited out of that as well 😉

If I were to go back and do anything, it would be to take Rose out completely. BUT… the thing is… we already know Rose, so when we see her, we know her story and we are assessing how much or how little we see of her… but try to view it with fresh eyes like you’ve never seen the original. For example, what if the guy who tasted the salt had a whole story to him in the original… and all we see in the edit is that one part… would we be saying ‘having him in that one scene is jarring because we don’t know his whole story… he just pops in and tastes the salt out of nowhere’ … no. lol My reasoning for briefly seeing Rose is just that… enough to satisfy her being in Ep.9 but a small enough role to minimize her cringe-impact in the original. Hope that makes sense

First, let me be clear that I appreciate the time and energy you put into these edits and I’m in no way criticizing the work
you have done. My favorite or “go to” edit is The Last Jedi - Rekindled edition by Poppasketti. You may have seen it already.
The reason it’s my favorite is that he has kept most of the movie intact but has only removed the most cringiest parts
which include Hux’s mother joke, Luke drinking the green milk, Leia superman scene, Canto Bight scene is now only 5mins, No Phamsa and Finn fight and Finn’s speeder sacrifice is left in but Rose gets shot down by AT-M6 and no awkward kiss scene between Finn and Rose. With these scenes removed it actually makes the movie enjoyable.

I know this will never happen, but in my opinion the perfect edit would be a hybrid of Poppasketti edit and your edit.
Your edit would now include Finn and Rose meeting, the lightspeed tracker side story of Finn and Rose travelling to
Canto Bight but shortened and Finn’s speeder sacrifice is left in but Rose gets shot down by AT-M6 and no kiss scene between Finn and Rose. But everything else is kept intact. However, I do like the focus of edit is kept on Rey and Luke story, the deleted scene of third lesson incorporated in and the praetorian guards using lightsabers. The ultimate perfect edit would have Admiral Holdo’s purple hair changed to blonde or brown if it’s possible.

Hi FGR, thanks for sharing your fantastic edit.
I’ve been through many edits now, Fallen Knight, Ivan O’s, Hals etc looking for the one that is closest to my tastes and is a version that I can bear to watch in the future, and this is it.
The editing is excellent and the cuts, although major, improve the movie for me and keep it more focused.

The only (subjective)things remaining that still bug me are:
When Hux says “fire” I’d like to see ships actually fire at Poes Xwing. It takes quite a while after the order before the first blasts are fired, but I realise this would have to be added rather than use existing footage.
I would love to see the end to Hux puppy faces.
Remove Hux repeating Kylos command, doesn’t feel the right time for a gag.
When Leia calls Poe over to explain about the base they are heading to, he looks up from an awkward position, almost like he has been caught masturbating or having a pee.
I’d like to cut Poe’s “she pulled them off” line, TLJ does a lot of telling the audience what is happening.
Maybe reinstate Finns attempted sacrifice as he has almost no meaning now which is a shame. Maybe not have Rose save him though to avoid the “saving those we love” cheese.

Other things I’d like to mention is Luke saving Leia. I don’t like what the director has done with force powers, especially the Ar Skype calls, but the damage is now done. Luke saving Leia remotely fits perfectly and is very powerful.
Also, lightsaber guards, fantastic.

Great work, loved it, thank you. Only need now a Hi Res version with higher quality sound 😃
