I had considered the night scene of Theed from the end of Episode 1. For Geonosis, the cliff scene overlooking the hive when Obi-Wan arrives. Takodana, take the clip in TFA of Maz’s castle with all the flags and Utapau can be from some of the trailers. Either the night scene of the Stormtroopers on the walkers or day scene before the battle begins could work for Kashyyyk. Idk if you would want any TCW planets.

I think Coruscant, Takodanna, Kashyyyk and Theed make the most sense, the population of Geonosis is extremely low after Death Star experiments theres nothing really left there at all.

Possible. Then again it’s been almost 40 or 50 years since the purge of the Geonosians, they could’ve been more populated by this point

I haven’t looked at the footage from Solo, but Corellia would be a good one, story-wise. I don’t know that Geonosis would thematically work. Jakku doesn’t even really fit as it’s not really a populous place being freed from tyranny either… but it’s there for Rey.

Coreilla would definitely work, Kessel too on that note. But I think Geonosis would be good and logically wouldn’t the First Order attempt to take it for the same reason that the Empire did?

The Empire stripped it of its resources, so I can’t imagine the First Order needing time claim it again. With Kessel, we only have live-action footage of the mines, not the cities.

Personally, I feel like the scene should be about people becoming free more than places; Geonosis and Kessel (and Jakku) aren’t populated places, just recognisable places. It’s supposed to be about liberation of people, y’know?

I believe the new planets that could be do-able, make sense in-universe and are significant enough are

  • Naboo
  • Corellia
  • Kashyyyk
  • Cantonica (Maybe that shot with the broom kid could be repurposed)
  • Kijimi.

If I had to choose one planet from the expanded universe, I’d say Nevarro.

That way one has representation for all trilogies and the spin-offs, including planets that are significant to the heroes in some way (Corellia, Kashyyyk), or that were seen placed under a nasty First Order regime (Kijimi), making the montage have more of a catharsis feel rather than adding planets for the sake of it.

Is Kijimi not exploding in this edit? I missed that change.

I can see that point of view too. I might try to see if I can pull it off, I’m an amateur so I have no idea what it would look like

That makes sense too, I like the list too. Is that a sequence that you’re intending to remake?

Most edits I’ve come across (mainly Hal’s) don’t specify that each Sith Star Destroyer is fitted a planet-killing weapon, so that way Kijimi is spared.

Well I don’t have any VFX experience so my contribution’s mostly relegated to cooking up ideas or sometimes playing around with music and scene rearrangements 😄. So far my prefered version of the sequence is the one in Hal’s edit: Bespin-Coruscant-a sequel trilogy world.

A thought I had earlier is that the planet-killing Star Destroyers might be more believable if multiple ships were required to blow up a single planet. It could be interesting to have a VFX-edited shot where three or four Destroyers shoot the planet simultaneously.

Ok I misunderstood you 😂 thought you were making an edit too. But yeah, what you describe is the extent of my experience as well.

That does make sense too, because how did the cult get the kyber Crystals for each ship in the fleet?

I’ve also been interested in repurposing the shot of the broom kid. I actually briefly tried to mask out clips from Rey’s visit to Tatooine to create a scene of her visiting the Broom kid (presumably buying his freedom) but there wasn’t enough footage and also I’m not that good at masking.

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

Cut out part of the frame, in this case the background so that I could change it to Canto Bight.
I might not have used the term correctly, I haven’t been editing very long.

Hey! I remember someone in this forum once did a mock-up of a green Exegol, but I can’t remember who was.
I was thinking about that idea of suggesting Palpatine kept himself alive through arcane methods, maybe involving secrets learned from the Nightsisters. That could be accomplished by surrounding the ailing Palpatine and his machinery with a faint green mist, plus Nightsister magic sound effects pulled from the Clone Wars show.

Also, maybe that green color and magic SFX could be applied to the Force-draining when Palpatine restores himself. I was watching the original movie with my family and it was kind of funny for us how the draining effect looked like a Dementor’s kiss 😄

So I’ve talked to a few different people on here about an idea I had for the expansion of the end scene of the crashing Star Destroyers if anyone is interested in helping put it together.

I was thinking a penultimate farewell to the galaxy if this is the end of the main series. Naboo, Geonosis, etc. I thought just taking some clips from the past and editing the falling Star Destroyer in the background would be a better way to end it, try to rival ROTJ. Add in some cheers and the Throne Room Theme from ANH as the background music for all the clips.

I had considered the night scene of Theed from the end of Episode 1. For Geonosis, the cliff scene overlooking the hive when Obi-Wan arrives. Takodana, take the clip in TFA of Maz’s castle with all the flags and Utapau can be from some of the trailers. Either the night scene of the Stormtroopers on the walkers or day scene before the battle begins could work for Kashyyyk. Idk if you would want any TCW planets.

I really don’t see why we can’t put the RotJ SE celebration here instead. It’s much more up to snuff, and leaving it in RotJ feels like one big lie/premature celebration now that the ST exists.

Point taken, we could get a mp4 of each and let the viewers decide which is better for the scene.

You might be right on the term, I’m an amateur too and only added in scenes already made. What app do you use for me to try it out?

I wanted to change Finn’s line when he’s running through the Falcon to talk to Boolio. I do not have the program necessary to make it sound very good but what I have is acceptable for a mock-up! Let me know what you think!

Yes! Always been a fan of anything that implies a link between Palpatine and the Nightsister magics as opposed to Sith magics. For me it always implied that Palps’ plans were wider than the Sith, or that he was especially desperate.
