TIL There is an error where Rey’s tear rolls back up her cheek. Does anyone plan on fixing this?

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

I also prefer to be referred to as “TNT”, not “Freezing”.

This isn’t real. Whoever posted this just reversed the shot.

Yes, seriously, please don’t share anything from there.

The link got deleted, what was it? Saltier Than Crait? Reylo Twitter? Because both of those places are toxic as hell.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000 edits), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian.
May the midichlorians be with you.

Sorry, I thought this was real to the point where I felt like it needed to be mentioned. Haven’t seen TRoS since release day, my bad…

Played around the climax of the Death Star scene:

  • Han and Luke call out “Ben” as he is about to strike Rey, I added this to make it more of a collective effort from the big 3 to reach their kid.
  • Added in Leia looking at Han’s medal intercut with Kylo getting stabbed and her death.
  • rearranged the healing scene with Rey first expressing that she wanted to take his hand, than using her hand to heal him (I think it helps in building up to the kiss later on), she then runs off as Kylo looks in aw…

Much better that way! I remember feeling confused when watching the movie for the first time about what was going on. This makes it much clearer

Interesting idea with the editing choices, the cuts and whatnot feel pretty smooth and the music will be the thing to polish, as you have already noted.

However, I kind of have a logical issue with Han calling out … so smugglers can also do the whole force ghost/speaking thing like Jedi? I know Anakin got a “Chosen One Pass” to do it, but Han as well?

Do NOT self-destruct!

I wanted it to feel like Leia was manifesting Han through her memories (hence his medal), implying that she initiated his appearance later on.

How about he can be a projection, like Luke was on Crait?

Hi, guys! I’m wondering if it’s possible to change the Force ghost Luke into a real-life Luke with some colour correction or something else in Sony Vegas Pro? I need an advice. Thanks a lot! 🙃

/r/shittyaskscience may have some necromancy techniques you can use.

Speaking of force ghosts here’s my attempt at using some of that documentary footage with Luke on Ach-to (sans VFX).

JEDIT: While I was at it I cut down a bit of Luke’s awkward walk as well as the not-so subtle “wink” to the fans.

Something I would love to see is Leia’s sabre replaced with Luke’s green sabre. I felt Leia’s training was shoehorned into the movie and the reason why she stopped her training made little sense. If Rey faces off against the Emperor with the weapons of Anakin and Luke it ties in better to the saga as a whole.

Hilt replacement is always a problem, but I could get behind that if it could be done convincingly (though I’d hate to lose the Leia training flashback, it was one of my favorite little moments).

Thanks for reminding me. It can’t be Leia’s saber in my cut because Leia isn’t a Jedi in my cut.

"Leia told me that she sensed the death of her son at the end of her Jedi path, she surrendered her saber to me and said that one day, it will be picked up again by someone who will finish her journey "

This. Makes. No. Sense.

Eh, I don’t mind it all that much. Obviously we don’t necessarily know what Leia’s ultimate journey could have been, but at least somebody did end up picking up her saber again to defeat the dark side. Mainly, I just appreciate that the theme of this little expository blip counters Anakin’s mindset in Ep3.

In the early leaks she said that she sensed the birth of her son and so she wanted to give up the jedi path because of that (which follows logically) and goes hand in hand with the EU. In this version its pretty contrived and convoluted since Ben does die and even worse he was a student of the darkside, so her leaving the jedi path because of sensing his death is self defeating and just doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Fair enough. To me it says that force premonitions are, in a way, unavoidable outcomes. Anakin tried to gain more power to overcome his premonitions, where as Leia gave up her power to try and avoid hers. Both resulted in the inevitable outcomes, but Leia’s more selfless path allowed her to die in peace and save her sons soul.

Does anyone else remember the really early leaks that said that the Leia and Luke flashback would be the first scene in the movie?

Edit:
This would explain why the BTS footage showed them filming an extended duel.

What’s wrong with your face!
