Yeah, cool! As I’m trying something similar (and am new to this editing-stuff): how did you get the original scene so clearly? The voices kind of bleeding through all channels, so I still hear them when I’m just muting the center-channel

This is great, I love the shots you chose, it all fits really good. A big improvement upon the original, at least in my book.

I completely re did the audio from scratch lol. The music is from the FYC score, then the bits where she grunts as she gets limbs on the ground were clear enough so I nabbed them and mixed them along with some breathing SFX i recorded with my partner and then applied reverb to them. A bit of work but it’s getting there, pretty happy with the results.

Oh, man… I absolutely love that hand montage! While I’m still a fan of the Jedi voices, I also like that this sort of thing can be an option now as well for editors.

With some help from a few people over at fanedit.org (including Spence and DigModiFicaTion from here, thanks to you both) this edit is nearing its truest final form.

There haven’t been any major changes since its initial release, but the format is now in two distinct parts with a short title sequence introducing Part II. Several other small cuts and additions have been made throughout.

For now, here is a final teaser trailer for the project as it nears completion (I still haven’t given up on subtitles!)

Any alterations to the extensive changelist?

Indeed:

  • Cut some extraneous shots of various aliens around Maz’s cantina

  • Removed C-3PO’s awkward introduction that breaks up Han and Leia’s reunion

  • Trimmed and crossfaded a couple of shots as Rey leaves the Resistance base for Ach-To to make it feel less like the end of a film and more like the start of the next chapter of this story.

  • Trimmed back a couple more jokes during TLJ (Poe’s “your momma”, Luke’s Jakku quip)

  • Cut the “crowing” sound the Supremacy makes as it comes out of hyperspace (always felt at odds with how ships are depicted sonically in SW)

  • Re-edited the sequence of shots as Rey destroys the shuttle on Pasaana

  • Replaced Luke’s awkward “I was wrong” with a long withering stare

This is exactly what I was looking for. Would it be possible for a link? I can’t wait. Looks like you’ve put a lot of personal and suggestion work into this.

Nice job. Some things that were trimmed or moved around really helped the narrative. Much more enjoyable to watch than the originals. Just one small suggestion. The scene from TROS where Rey meets Luke on the island is very dark. Maybe the intention was to make it look like she was there at night, but it was jarring and distracting when I first viewed it, making some things harder to see. The coloring on her face looks off, at least for me. I would prefer to see the lighting on the scene as it was in the originals. Other than that, great work! Keep it up.

This looks so awesome! I’ve been wanting to see a fanedit of the entire Sequel Trilogy since I saw Rise of Skywalker. Could you please DM me the download link?
