Excited that a V6 of this is happening. Would be interesting to see a workprint. Moving the ‘Plot to destroy the Jedi’ scene seems like it might address some of the issues I have with flow in that part of the edit.
I agree it flows much better now. The scene now takes the place of Anakin’s counseling session with Yoda.
I’d love to see you reinstate some of the Yoda/Palpatine fight, mainly just to break up the fight on Mustafar. But I know you have your reasons for cutting it.
Yeah. LOE has sort of an ‘Alien 3’ vibe to it: depressing. But, it still has some levity and gentle humor throughout. But LOE has a consistent tone which Yoda vs. Sidious would shatter. I do enjoy the sequence, but only because I can’t take it seriously and have to check out of Star Wars to do so IMHO.
Could you revisit the vocal pitch effects on the Battle Droid that says “hands up Jedi”? I get that you’re trying to make him sound less squeaky, but right now his voice sounds audibly deeper than any other battle droid in these films.
I actually lifted a snippet of audio from ADigitalMan’s edit. I’m fine with it as it is, if only as an homage to my forebears.
Here’s a weird potential idea. What do you think of making the brief “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” Millennium Falcon cameo look more like it’s appearance in Solo?
There’s nothing in the text of the film to suggest it’s actually the Falcon. It’s just some YT-whatever model freighter, as far as I’m concerned. The fact that Solo altered its appearance before ANH only reinforces this.
Thanks for the feedback and ideas. 😃
And I’m not really feeling the super short ‘Anakin in the Temple’ scene; it’s seems just too short to feel legitimate. But, I will try to work on the music and make my best attempt before giving up on it.
