Jonh just wow superb vfx work. You have made this final fight feel so right. Whenever it’s ready I would be interested in the HQ release of this full scene. No one’s edit would be complete without this. Star Wars isn’t complete with out this. As Jerry McGuire says, “you complete m…” Ah well you get the point. 😃

heil palpatine.

Jonh other suggestions/comments for your consideration:

  1. In the close ups of each of the force ghosts, it seems they each get the same sequence of lightning flashes. I would try to make the lightning flashes seem more random in the close ups. Varying the length of each close up might also help.

  2. Just before Rey goes to kill Palpatine, if you decide to show even more force ghosts in the distance, a female Jedi would be good to add if possible and Mace Windu would be cool.

  3. You chose the perfect characters to appear behind Rey. Nice job. And Obi-Wan looks tough!

heil palpatine.

yeah! I was thinking exactly that! I’m going to perfect the lightning sequence, thanks !!!
about including more ghosts, I think I’ll leave only 4…😉

I hope to finish the edition before the quarantine ends, then I will start my work again! 😅 … I hope you are all good in this difficult time!💪💪💪

The four is really all we need. Sometimes less is more and subtlety is better. Thanks again for making this look so perfect! It makes me very excited for this improved ending. And now it makes me even more firm in my decision to remove the silly Luke and Leia hippie force ghosts in the desert!!!

heil palpatine.

Jonh! Long time creeper first time comment-er on the forum. I got a suggestion. Is there anyway you can render all their Jedi Robes white or a lighter color of sorts. Just a thought… Looks awesome!

@Jonh Amazing work, but just a nitpick, would you be able to flip the positions of Ben/Yoda and Anakin/Luke? In the next shot of Rey with the lightsaber I think it would be amazing imagery to have her then Luke then Anakin behind her to the right, instead of Ben/Yoda. Either way. Amazing work.

The Skywalker Saga Viewing Order:
I: C.O.D. | II: T.A.S. | III: L.O.E. AE
IV: Revisited | V: Revisited | VI: Revisited
VII: Restructured | VIII: Rekindled | IX: Ascendant

This is the way.

Hello! it is quite difficult to make the robes white … I prefer to leave the robes with the original color 😃

I’m sure when you’re done someone else could recolour Anakins robe.

This is on a different topic, but I just had an idea for a change that could be made to the Leia’s Lightsaber reveal to better explain why she gave it up, as well as justifying making the lightsaber purple (which many edits, including mine, are planning to do in honor of Carrie Fisher).
Instead of “she had a vision, she sensed her son’s death at the end of her Jedi path,” it could be something like
“She sensed her destiny as a Jedi was to bring peace, and that in her hands, this blade would only bring darkness. She surrendered her saber to me and told me that one day, it would be picked up by someone who could use their inner darkness for good.” It would obviously have to be modified a great deal in order to be viable with audio splicing and whatnot, but I’d like to try something in that vein.
That might do a better job of tying in the color (because Mace Windu’s lightsaber color also had to do with him using the dark side without being corrupted by it) with the reason Luke decided to give it to Rey (because they just had a whole conversation about Rey being afraid of herself and her past) and with the fan theories that Leia was actually a higher risk of turning evil than Luke was, since she had experienced so much suffering.

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

I have changed the positions, as you have told me … it is true that in the following shots, with Rey with the lightsaber, those on the right are more visible, and I think it is logical to put anakin and luke there

Amazing stuff! You have serious talent. The expressions fit perfectly.

The flashing light, though…that was a problem with the original movie too. Not sure why JJ wanted to cause seizures like that. Would it be possible to work around that?

For real… It doesn’t bother me on TV, but when I saw it in theaters I felt like I was going to be sick.

dark Rey concept

This might’ve been too much like the Dagobah Cave vision, but this would’ve been a cool visual to see during the dark Rey vision. I felt like the vision needed some kind of angle. When Luke fought Vader in his vision and it revealed his own face, it hinted both at the darkness within himself, but also foreshadow Luke and Vader’s connection.

Rey’s vision, on the other hand, doesn’t feel like it has any subtext beyond her confronting her inner dark side.

EDIT: To add onto this idea, maybe when Dark Rey’s fangs come out, you could an additional effect to help foreshadow Palpatine possessing Rey. For example, maybe Rey’s eyes could simply go completely white, or yellow, like Palpatine’s. Even further, it would be interesting if Rey’s face could morph into Palpatine’s at the last minute. It would almost be like a reversal of the Dagobah cave. Vader becomes Luke. Rey becomes Palpatine.

Palpatine’s scream when he jumps at Mace Windu and the rest of the Jedi in Ep III could be altered slightly and added when Rey and Dark Rey fight.

Also stunning job jonh! I go back and forth whether I really want to literally see the force ghosts but you keep selling me.

Phenomenal, it gets better and better. My only minor gripe would be that Luke doesn’t track with the background in his closeup shot, which seems shakier than the others.

In the close up shot of Luke, the background is shaking, but he isn’t.

I think this could be the definitive version. If I saw this in theatre I would have been happy.
Now we just need the following “Force shield”… 😄
