EDIT(Message me if you want to preview my first edit!)

Hello! I have started work on a TFA edit called “A New Threat” I will be trimming dialogue down so the Kylo Ren is Han’s son reveal until the end. I am also removing some forced comedy elements and trimming down the rathtar scene.

Fullish change list:

Trimmed Kylo and Lor San Teka scene

Cut Finns " You got a boyfriend" line

Heavily trimmed the rathtar scene

Trimmed Snokes scenes

Trimmed all dialogue that mentions kylo ren is han and leias son.

Trimmed tako dana to remove the hosiuna destruction

made the “Traitor!” fight a little shorter.

Trimmed almost all of leias scenes as she mentions Kylo is her son.

Moved Hosiuna destruction to Han’s Death

added color correction.

added new music to the lightsaber fight.

I like the idea of your edit and would like to see a more detailed list of what you’ll be doing but the timestamp on the deleted scenes sucks you straight out of the film. And imo the scene is not good enough for such a drawback.

I believe in Rian Johnson

I think this edit would be quite good to iron out the few kinks the movies had. I think also cutting out a few A New Hope references would be great aswell; I cringed at stuff the Kessel run in 14 parsecs line. But yes, the gaint CGI ball scene dserves a good trimming. Also, maybe another name for this edit would prevent it from sounding like an A New Hope reboot. Maybe “The Rising Threat” or “The Threat Awakens”… im not too sure really. Sorry for such a poorly structured response …

I highly recommend you don’t use the scene for the sake of the time code. My rule is pretty much that if a first time viewer sees a fan edit of the original source, if a certain edit or addition takes even a first time viewer out of the film then it doesn’t belong

Ah good idea. This is my first ever edit so it may not be the greatest ever

Thanks for the Idea. I have cut the deleted scene from my edit and changed the rathtar scene slightly. Next I will upload the scene with lor san teka and kylo that I trimmed.

I really am positive so far with the edit. It was pretty hard to notice that Finn didn’t get captured at all haha! I also agree with Smithers and might add that even cutting the little couple seconds where they turn the corner and she says “what do they look like” and then they see the rathar and Finn says “that”. Nice work so far! Interested in the Kylo and Lor San Tekka clip
