Could you please tell me what you think of this?
I’m still not sure… I’m not eagerly fond of the music in Return, so I’m trying to replace it here and here.
I’d like to have an opinion.
I tried to remove the original music with Audacity, but it was hard to keep other noises and voices.

I prefer the original music , although this is an interesting experiment and provides a new experience . That is just me though . I am interested in seeing/hearing how you incorporate the ending of this scene with the one that comes afterward in the space battle though .

So, first of all thank you for the suggestion about the glow effect. Unfortunately I work with Sony Vegas, but I’ve already changed and reduced the glow to make it more like PT and less like ST.
About the music… the Falcon engine noise helps. I changed the music right there and added a track from Rogue One for the space battle sequence.

Just watched it and very much enjoyed it ! Your opening logos were fantastic…very slick and professional looking and sounding .I love what you did with Endor , it really does feel like a more alien world now .The overall tone of this edit is much more serious and now I am on board with many of the music choices you used .I think it would have been cool to use a line from the novelization for one of Jabba’s subtitles , " I was killing your kind when being a Jedi meant something " . Your edit gets his attitude of disdain for Jedi across, but I think the novel line would be much more of a direct way of doing it. Am I mistaken , or did you add in some foley effects like footsteps etc in some parts ? The opening scene feels much more ominous now and I like it a lot .The only thing that took me out of this a bit was the gray in the Emperor’s throne room . I think I see what you are going for…the tone does enhance the glow of the Emperor’s eyes and the colors of the lightsabers and the lightning…I just think you overdid it a bit . I don’t think you should change it back to the way it was originally shown, but maybe put a little bit of the blue tones back in . As it stands now, it reminds me a bit too much of Sin City and in pushing the gray tones , it makes all of the characters in the scene almost devoid of color .I liked the subtle enhancement of the Death Star explosion and the kind of " gaussian blur/dreamlike"color effects of certain scenes .I think it was a good choice to get rid of the dance number in Jabba’s palace …It helps with the tone you are going for .I also prefer the more reddish glows on the x-wings to the purple you used and would love to see Sebastian Shaw’s force ghost re-instated . Another cool thing would have been to clean up the editdroid laserdisc footage with Yoda with the line," Obi-Wan would have told you long ago, had I let him " and insert it into this edit .Your musical choices in this sequence did help make it feel new and exiting though .In fact , I thought the music you used in much of this edit helped give everything a greater sense of urgency .Sorry to ramble . just giving my overall thoughts and hopefully,constructive criticism .Overall, I really did enjoy this . Thank you for sharing .Out of curiosity,are you planning on doing further edits to this ?

So… first of all thank you so so much 😄

  1. That line from Jabba would have been cool indeed. Unfortunately I haven’t read the novelization, so I didn’t know about it 😦
  2. I know that many people don’t like (or at least not entirely) the tone in the Throne room. Personally I enjoy it more than the original, mostly because that’s just a tower in space, and space isn’t blue. But I totally get your point. If I’ll revisit this again, I’ll probably reduce the black-and-white a little bit.
  3. I also get the X-Wing engines and Shaw’s force ghost. De gustibus non disputandum est. My intention was to give a feel of a more cohesive saga, giving the engines kinda the same color they had in Rogue One, and keeping Christensen as a way to connect the saga. But again, I totally get that many people don’t like it, so no problem 😉

About a V3, right now I have no plans about working on it. I want to revisit the prequels (I rewatched my edits of Ep I & II and they look awful). But I think sooner or later I’ll come back to this, for sure.
Thank you again 😃
