Hi. I really enjoyed your edit. I like a lot of the colour corrections you did and additions of suns and atmospheres. I thought it would bug me that Vader scene at the beginning was cut, as I do love the line ‘…he is not as forgiving as I am…’ but watching the saga as a whole, the big baddy is Palpatine, so it has more impact to see him arrive at the beginning, as the main baddie, as having Vader arrive diminishes this looking at the bigger picture.
Cuts are well placed. It always bugged me that Boba Fett was killed way too clumsily, I hated Jedi Rocks, although the original Jabba’s palace dance I liked because the music is very nostalgic…but I don’t miss it that much to be honest. I liked getting rid of Han’s jealousy and that terrible line ‘somehow I’ve always known’
I’m also happy that you kept the celebrations from 1997 in - the one update from George Lucas that I really liked. The music is far more emotional, great to see other places in the galaxy celebrate. Etc. I have always liked Sebastian Shaw’s ghost, but it makes sense now to have a younger Anakin, as a force ghost, so I’m glad you left that in too.
Overall, a very good edit. So much so, it’s cannon for me now. Thank you for sharing it 😊
