Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker edit : The Final Sith (Released)

Thought I would see if any are interested in my edit.

I fixed most of the things so Palpatine can stay in the movie.

The biggest change is where Rey meets Palpatine. They do face each other however, It’s no longer where you expect it. They don’t meet in the real world.

The resistance also land on the planet instead of on a star destroyer in the end. Oh man, why did they approve of this? So many problems.

Kylo ren stays dead. No quicksand. No training in the beginning. No lightspeed skipping.

Renamed the movie to : “The Final Sith”

Cheers!

Okay that was an interesting watch. I’ll start with what might need some adjustments:

The crawl needs some work, it’s too long with too much exposition, keep it short but to the point. I didn’t get the deal with Rey magically appearing on Exogol, was it a vison? teleportation? Also you cut Chewie’s death yet it was still referred to throughout, perhaps referring to him being captured would be a better option.

Otherwise there are some very good ideas in this edit. I really like that you completely got rid of the Passana speeder chase, making it look like they ran into a cave. I just think that implication needs to be made clearer. My favourite thing about this is how you switched Rey’s emotional reaction to Chewie’s death to her reacting to Kylo Ren crashing the Tie Fighter, pity you killed him off on the Deathstar because otherwise it was a nice Reylo setup. I also liked that you cut Rey riding the waves on Kef-Bir, adding a sense of mystery as to where she disappeared.

Some very novel ideas here, just needs a little tuning up 😉

Thanks idr_hh for the thoughts!

I need to point out that Rey did not go to Exogale. She stayed in the dark realm. Never even going to the planet.

Old plapatine was working everything from there. Connected to the sith planet by way of the dark dark side and that evil building. Or through that force skype thing, that is a force thing now. lol.

I thought about the chewie death thing but on the other hand, they may have thought he was dead cause the bad guys are like real bad and kill everyone. Especially now during this countdown to an attack. This could also show Rey does not have mastery over the force when she is mad or on a mission with emotions. She could not tell. She thought Chewie was a goner but wait! She was wrong. haha.

There might be a way to get this more pronounced. hmmmm.

I might work in the cave sequence a bit more as well.

That is interesting you thought the beginning crawl was too long. I did another star wars edit with a very short crawl and someone else complained. Said it was “too short” and should have more in it. So this time I thought a bit more would suffice. haha. I shall possibly remove one paragraph perhaps.

Once again thanks for your input!

May the force be with you.

I have completed some changed to the movie already. Many thanks to idr_hh for pointing some things out.

  • The beginning crawl has been changed to be a tad shorter.

  • Some scenes put in so the viewer can understand where Rey is during the end battle.

  • Tried to tweak Rey going into the dark realm by inserting some small scenes.

Cheers!

Here is another review.

I bet a pizza with another star wars fan that my edit is at least a 6 out of 10. If it is not, I owe a pizza. If it is a 6 out of 10 or more, I get a pizza.

The fan viewed the movie unedited before my edit, and did NOT like the path taken. Could not understand some of the plot that was in the movie. Could not believe they went with a script that included such forehead slappers or something like that.

So I edited the movie and the bet was made.

I am now owed a pizza.

The movie has been graded at around a 6 or 7 out of 10. I am going to get a loaded pizza for my efforts.

Mission accomplished.

Not long enough for star wars fans but, just enough for a hopeful glimmer of a good star wars story. Or something like that.

Version 2 comes in at 1:41:29
