Hey thanks again for the followup. This was an enjoyable watch. VERY Good work!
Here’s a few notes I mentioned while watching that stuck out to me.
I liked a lot of additions such as the new crawl. This was a cool alternate take. New coloring on Endor helped to give the planet a more alien feel. Luke’s updated hologram was cool, that needed updating. I also dug Palpatine’s new sith eyes.
Best removal was Han’s out of place jealousy. By this point in the saga and within the ROTJ movie itself that felt like little a step backward for Han’s character & it hinted at a love triangle that was already abandoned. Good call removing it. I wonder if maybe the line “hey what’s going on?” can even be swapped with him just saying “Leia”? Only because that delivery: “hey what’s going on” always stood out to me as out of palace in that somber moment. It sounds like Han is casually answering a phone.
The only thing I noticed missing was the shot of Lando shown in the palace at one point nudging his mask down. If that’s in there and I missed it then disregard this comment. But if it was removed, the main reason I would have left it was because if we never have Lando established as infiltrating the palace, then he just shows up on the barge. I don’t know, just something to consider. I know you cut a lot out of that opening.
Again though, good work overall!
