But like I said, I think it could work both ways, but it might work better if that vision’s connection to Kylo isn’t revealed until later. When she shares what she saw with Finn, she is still is trying to figure out what it means. She doesn’t understand the context. So, when Kylo later provides that context (in this case, that they will kill Palpatine and take the throne from him), Rey’s shocked reaction feels warranted. She putting the pieces together, and the fact Kylo saw it too makes it feel scary and inevitable.

Honestly, just got chills from reading this. I love this line of thinking in regards to that scene.

I appreciate your enthusiasm, Sasquatch! Hopefully it will work.

Also, not to derail the conversation, but has anyone tried/considered having Hux being demoted to “Captain Hux” in TROS? Basically, Kylo demoted him for his past failures, and because he doesn’t trust him. Kylo says “Captain” constantly throughout the Lego TFA dialogue, so it would probably be easy to implement.

In Hux’s first scene, Kylo could say, “I sense unease about my appearance, Captain Hux.” The audience would realize Hux has been demoted, and it would explain why he just follows General Pryde around the entire movie, just like how Captain Peavey followed General Hux around in TLJ. Also, this humiliation would provide Hux more motivation to want to get back at Kylo. Kylo humiliated him, and he just wants to humiliate him back.

RogueLeader … that’s very interesting idea and what really … fit.

“Because you are a PalpaWalker?”

Huh that’s an interesting idea.

Rogue, just don’t sleep and night and you’ll get it done fast! 😄

I actually finally finished the puppets today! But keep in mind, I didn’t make them extremely detailed because they’ll only be on screen for like, 2 seconds. I basically just took Faraday’s puppet designs and turned them into actual puppets.

But I’m gonna try and film them tonight! So maybe I really won’t sleep. 😂

Does anyone have a link to get the Lego voice lines? I may tinker with proposed new lines for Kylo to see how they work, such as the ‘Captain Hux’ one.

Check the first post on the Rey Nobody thread! I think it has the YouTube link and a Google drive link to the voice lines.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Haha, a lot of hype for two seconds. 🤣

Filming is complete! I’ll start playing with the footage tomorrow.

Nev, it’s funny doesn’t sound very much like Kylo. Since he’s usually barking order at the captain, I think it’s hard to get that inflection to match with his other dialogue.

I recall seeing a Darth Nihilus edit on Exegol that added his statue when Kylo’s first meeting Palpatine; believe its as he goes down the Elevator, anyone know if it was finished or any updates on it?

According to my very rough log of the Lego lines that I made like a year ago, Kylo says “captain” 17 different times. You gotta think one of them would work, right? Let’s hope. I’ll check this weekend if I get the chance.

Also very excited for puppets.

There’s a few scenes on youtube that should do the trick, try some Let’s Plays.

I messaged Chase but no reply yet. Not sure if he’s still working on it or not.

RogueLeader I can’t wait to see what you’ve made. Very exciting 2 seconds though.

Xpost from the Ascendant thread in case anyone wanted it:

I’ve uploaded the various materials for my “I’m a Jedi” stuff on Mega, here. There’s two full lossless .mp4 versions of the clip, one with words, and one without (done by mixing the left and right channels to create a clean centre channel), with 5.1 AAC audio. The shorter .mp4 is the edited Palpatine shot I made in both Ascendant (purple) and Theatrical (blue) flavours. The .mp3 contains the various isolated voice clips - both the original lines and my edited versions - so you can combine them with the wordless file in whatever configuration you desire. It’s in mono; they go in the centre channel. Hopefully this is useful to someone even if HAL doesn’t go down this route. Let me know if I forgot anything.

Yeah I didn’t expect to get as many PMs about that clip as I did, lol.

Originally I had no plans to really see the edit all the way through, but due to popular demand I do intend to fully commit to finishing it for all the required shots (there are more than one) until I’m satisfied.

However this likely won’t happen until sometime during the Australian winter, as that’s when I’ll have the holidays to work on stuff like that. Cause right about now I do happen to be caught in the middle of my Uni’s semester finals.

My homeworld is Australia so be wary of timezones!

Understandable, I think the statue you have already done is fantastic, 😂 !

No worries, dude! I completely understand. That’s because you did an excellent job and it’s a great addition.

I just didn’t wanna take time away from trying to mimic what you did if you intended to finish them at some point. I now have 19 new shots and 5 new scenes to finish so it’s good to know you’re still wanting to do the other shots.

Have you thought about adding Revan to the other statue?

Posted this in Hal’s edit thread, probably should have put it here. Thoughts?

RogueLeader said:

I’ve suggested ways to emphasize it even more, like having Palpatine’s voice sometimes be layered with multiple echoing voices. Like all the Sith are speaking through him.

So I have been playing with this idea for the past little while, trying to make it work. This is still rough, but I think it’s in a position that I can show it for feedback. I really wanted the “I am all the Sith” thing to lean into the “I am Legion” idea of the Sith literally possessing Palpatine’s body, so this is my attempt at conveying that. I’ve used Sade’s PHENOMENAL re-ordering of Palpatine’s dialogue, ending on “No match for the power in me”.

Now, I had seen people on here mention that the pregnant pause in dialogue in this cut was unfortunate, and some wishing that it ended on “You are nothing” so that it’s clear that Rey is responding to THAT specifically. So I let the Sith voices do the talking during that pause. Honestly, I’m pumped about how this is going, but I need everyone’s ears. Does this rule? Or does it suck?

If people want this for their edits, I would do it for all of Palpatine’s dialogue in the entire movie. Then editors could adjust levels however they like, or even do what RL suggested initially and only have the extra Sith voices come through occasionally.

I would essentially be supplying WAVs of each Sith voice separately so they could be mixed in as desired. Maybe sometimes you only want the whispery ones, maybe sometimes just the croaky ones, or the deep ones.

Maybe a falsetto one too, cuz y’know… species.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
