Star Wars: The Ford Awakens (Han Lives Edit) — Page 2

It probably could work with a little practise and a lot of time, I’ve had mistimed edits before and managed to pull it together.

Perhaps a quick reaction shot of Rey screaming could help too? Just tossing that out there.

I got to talking with an editor elsewhere and he suggested I bring the tearing down of the shields to right after Han and Chewie set off the explosives.

Still the cut is too hard.
We don’t see any reaction of Han or what happens to him.
It’s a nice idea and I understand that you can only work with what is available but that’s the point: Imo that’s why it’s not possible.

Then my original idea of just avoiding the Kylo confrontation altogether is probably better for the edit.

However, that does mean Kylo kind of just ends up vanishing after Snoke talks to him about sensing Rey’s awakening.

There is that small moment where they show hab running where the stormtroopers cant see him? Maybe edit that in there?

I think I know which scene you mean and I might have had some luck with that in the past. It might have been part of my original Kylo confrontation draft, I’ll check the video.

Did some tweeking with the R2 Awakens Early Scene to remove the cloth being removed, changed here are C3PO saying R2’s come back and later saying he’s missed him

OP now updated with revised version of R2 awakens scene

I had contemplated showing Kylo taking his lightsabre out and activating it just after he says “your son…is gone”, the problem with this Han in standing right in front of him when he takes out the lightsaber, and I’m trying to convey Han doesn’t get that close.

I’ve now settled on a definitive timeline, no alternate versions will be available unless I’m certain something can’t be fixed.

A draft of the edit is complete and will be available sometime tomorrow for those interested.

Ran the latest version by one of the most important people in my life. My best friend, who’s not that big a SW fangirl. Here’s what she said

“Admittedly not a big Star Wars fan bu that ending is much better. I’ve sent it to my pals who are Star Wars fans”

My BFF gave the edit to two SW fans who also loved it. I’d say this is ready for full release. I’ll write up the IFDB entry sometime next week or this weekend.

Could mix and match this edit with a TLJ edit that has Luke survive, and exclaim, “Just this once… EVERYBODY LIVES!”

And then : Star Wars Episode IX : The Revenge of the Daleks

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.
