One thing that’s always bugged me about the movie, but that I haven’t seen many edits address, is the sequence just before the heroes leave for Pasaana. The music tries to make it feel like it’s one long, emotional scene, when it’s really a series of smaller scenes that don’t quite blend together imo. But I don’t know what to do about this.
- I tried just cutting right from “we go together” to Threepio saying goodbye to Artoo, but then it looks like Threepio is still looking at Rey while he says it.
- I tried cutting the “we go together” scene entirely, but then we lose the only mention of Pasaana.
- I tried rescoring the whole sequence with something more upbeat, but I can’t separate the music from Threepio’s goodbye - and I can’t cut that, because that makes it look like Rey teleported.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?
