That is not Ady’s fault really, the shots are in the wrong order that is why the storm troopers are inconsistant. I looked at this part for years it’s really confusing but once you re-arrange it it starts to make more sense. But I don’t think Ady wanted to re-arrange the sequence. There are 2 shots missing and one pulled from another sequence where they run through the hall part which was flipped. But the footage was never released where the citizens of cloud city shot the storm troopers. It was like a rebellion against the empire scene on cloud city. It’s in the script and it was filmed.
The storm trooper on his own shooting behind the pillar is the one we see dead earlier with the group of storm troopers coming into the area. The shots are in the wrong order of sequence.
This was my final guess at in what order the shots were meant to be in. Key word here is guess. you can trust quite a bit of it not the start though.
Also I think pretty impossible to fix. Smoking R2-D2 is also from the part where he electrocutes himself. But it is also possible that they never left the door where R2-D2 electrocuted himself.
Watching your video reminds me. I wonder why the shot of Chewie and R2 being pursued by that one Stormtrooper wasn’t flipped to correction (R2’s holo-projector should be on the left side of his eye, and yet it’s still on the right side in “Revisited.”)
I would never dream of holding anything against Ady when it comes to this part or any part of the film tbh. But I would love to see somone including myself simply try a chronological edit with some fixes.
It has to do with the missing shoot out between cloud city citizens and stormtroopers that is all. Like I said really difficult to cure that.
For a while I thought it went after Bob a fett flies off but it is to do with the missing shootout.
All the same, I don’t think flipping that one shot of Chewbacca, R2 and the Stormtrooper horizontally would have changed its meaning.
My best guess at chronological order. The meaning of that shot is only they flipped it so it joins with R2-D2 plugging in the wall but it does not join at all like this.
Lando Leia run through hallway chewie and R2 are lagging behind. Stormtroopers shoot citizens fight stormtroopers. Chewie goes another way shoots the one in pursuit while the other storm troopers are in battle with the citizens.
Lando makes his announcement to the city to leave. R2 electrocutes himself.
3p0 “how am i supposed to know the difference between power socket and a computer terminal”
R2 smoking responds
3po “at least your still in one piece look what happened to me!”
Gun battle resumes on same door where R2-D2 electrocuted himself. Some shots in different order. But all dialogue the same.
And they escape…
