Couple of questions regarding this:
- Are you still planning on making this?
- If so, are you also going to redo the lasers? Because they certainly look different than the PT/Your version of the OT lasers.
- Are you going to keep Kylo Ren’s lightsaber the same? I hope so, as I actually think it adds a lot and symbolizes the instability of his character.
Undecided on the lasers as the tech from a story standpoint has advanced 30 years. Blasters are different except for Han’s. (I think the lasers look ok, does not warrant a significant change.
I am NOT touching Ren’s saber shots, Just blighting up the cores on FIN/RAY’s saber on the wide shots. I think JJ intentionally tried to make it look as it did from ESB on some shots. I have an issue with this art direction because Lucas’s saber Vision has evolved in terms what a light saber should look like since 1981.
4- Potentially controversial so I will have 2 versions of the film with this change and without… I plan on recreating the classic look of the Falcon engines as how the engine glow was larger of the back end of the falcon. (Will try to give it a (NON CG look). Some might disagree with this so I will have 2 versions of the film.
Additional Plans:- AUDIO-
1- Going to mix in more of the original Light saber sound on the first activation of “Luke’s saber”
2- Planning on restoring the original Falcon laser turret blaster sounds. The originals were never used and I not quite sure why as it is the exact same laser.
Potentially more minor changes but I wont know for sure until I buy the BD release where I can look at things at a frame by frame level…
