Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Yes, I mean, we never get more context on that bit of the vision, so why not make it look like Exegol. Specially since that’s where you already added the Palpatine lines, and we see the KoR, who don’t become relevant until TRoS. We never see heavy rain on Exegol but otherwise it looks similar.

Could certainly give it a shot.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Already rain on Kylo’s windshield in the first shot.

Ooh, good catch.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

That part of the vision makes so much more sense if it was Exegol. The very next shot is her parents leaving her on Jakku and her dad came from Exegol

Exegol already seems to be caught in a constant thunderstorm until Palpatine is vanquished, if someone could make a convincing edit of rain pouring down as Kylo first enters the Sith Citadel the connection would be settled. Otherwise it still works since there’s still a storm in the background and as Kylo enters the planet.

Another thing, maybe you could hide the face of the random dude Kylo impales in the vision, and mute his voice. That way, because of the shape of his helmet, he could pass off as a memeber of the Alazmec cultists on Mustafar. The overhead shot in the vision with Kylo surrounded by dead people is very similar to the shot on Mustafar after the battle is over. Also on that same shot, for a brief moment after a lightning strike, you can see the silhouette of a building far in the background that was never explained (or maybe it’s supposed to be Luke’s Temple, it’s not clear), that could be replaced with a silhouette of the Sith Citadel. Then it could be rationalized as the vision taking place in the middle of the storm with the Citadel in the background, while in TRoS we’re at the Citadel with the thunderstorm in the background.

The vision could now be interpreted as an amalgamation of Kylo searching for and finding Exegol, reuniting with the Knights of Ren, and hunting after Rey. Paired with Palpatine saying “it is unavoidable… it is your destiny”.

The people Kylo slaughters was definitely my main gripe about making that part of her vision Exegol, but, that guy he stabs definitely looks a lot like those cultists. It would be nice if you could tie them more together. Maybe the “Ahh!” we hear when Kylo stabs the vision guy could be added to the Mustafar montage when Kylo kills one of the cultists. Or at least adding a similar voice sound effect to both of them.

Hal, if you’re planning on a V5 for this edit, try adding in the original piece of music John Williams composed when Rey uses the Force on the lightsaber. I did an attempt on it a while back.

I can try again without the burden of preserving sync, so idk for sure but can be revisited.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

If you can really, really nail the transition from this new music into the original score, then I’m all for it. But I’m not sold on it. I still like the original score for the scene more.

Save the Sebastian Shaw Ghost! Save the dream…!

That’s how I feel as well.

Well, trying to mimic the look of Exegol for the Forceback rain planet seems silly because when I apply a similar blue filter and then skenera’s LUT, it… just ends up looking like it did to begin with.

I’d bet you they modeled Exegol after that sequence somewhat. Perhaps even the rain on Kylo’s windshield as a nod.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Well that particular scene is already very blue, maybe just using the grey Exegol LUT at a certain percent could mimic the way it looks on Ascendant?

Author
Time

I could do that just enough for it not to hurt, even just to say I did. But it’s not a meaningful difference.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Even if it’s subtle, it would work great to tie things together if they match visually.

Author

Yeah, all those horizontal positioning things will be taken care of, thankfully.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Does anyone lose a limb in this whole trilogy? Could Han or someone maybe shoot someone’s hand off or something?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

When Kylo kills Snoke, not only does the lightsaber cut him in half, but it also cuts his left hand off.

Author

Really? I thought it was both of his hands, at least from what I’ve heard.
