Are there any good Solo fanedits around yet?

I have not seen much editor attention on this movie since it was released, besides color grading.

Honestly, I’ve been thinking about doing one recently.

I thought it was pretty good in theaters, but only saw it once. I watched again recently and I enjoyed it even more. It is just a fun ride, in my opinion.

I’ve been waiting to see if someone would make a nice LUT to use for a brighter color grade, but beyond that I just wanted to trim stuff here and there to cut about 15 minutes to get the runtime down to 2 hours in order to make it a bit “faster”, and “more intense”.

There were a fair few ideas and people interested in doing a Solo edit in the Solo fan edit ideas thread - though none seem to have been released as yet…

Which seems a little strange as there were a few good deleted scenes released for the blu ray, and a few people were highlighting their wish for a shorter film in there - or somewhat of a ‘faster’ and ‘more intense’ edit as RL stated above 😉

Am not sure… though I don’t recall kk650 having yet done a colour-corrected version for Solo either (I think he has done projects for the other SW films?)

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

All of my computers are too outdated to make a quality edit from, or I would attempt one myself. I just don’t have the money to upgrade now.

I would love for an edit that trims the opening and has the Solo title card after the Imperial officer asks Han what his name is. It would go as follows:

Han: “I wanna be a pilot”

Officer: “And your name is?”

Han smirks

I made one that lasts 1h44 but it’s a French version… it’s up to you

There’s a nice color grade that came out recently, on r/fanedits. I have seen it a few times, and it’s a big improvement.

kk650 has done a regrade of SOLO but i dont think it fixes the major problem with the film as far as color goes. the user or r/fanedits version looks really good, but im not sure it has been released yet.

I have a fan edit in mind that I’ll probably get to at some point that’ll probably pretty quick and easy. I actually like the look of the film, but I’ll probably still color correct it, as I tend to do that anyway.
