That’s reassuring, thanks.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

During last update there was discussion about adding “kill him” to the final duel. As new update is comig? I think maybe you can look at this. I added some generic sith whispers, and layered voices from RotS and both Lion Kings. And also generic Palpatine laught after the duel, as the ground moves. Maybe it’s worth a try, as it shouldn’t break the sync? If not, I’m happy just showing it here 😉

currently downloading this, looking forward to seeing what’s different but most of all hoping to hear some palpatine in the mix.

I think now that we know who Rey really is, i would scatter a bunch of Palpatine references here & there.

i haven’t read what Hal9000 has added as far as palpatine is concerned but i think during the scene where Kylo is probing Rey’s mind, i think hearing Palpatine’s voice from ROTJ say ‘‘I can feel your anger’’ subtly, yet audible, just as Kylo looks afraid would work well.

What, no Turkey?!

I’m new to the site but not to Star Wars. I recently sent a request for TROS cut you released but after scrolling through the site I would love the chance to enjoy your take on the whole sequels. I am just now reading over your changes to the prequels. I am familiar with some other edits but I would also like to see your spin as well. If there’s a link or download available I would appreciate. Thanks, and keep doing what you do.

Watched this last night, the restructuring of the planet destruction taking place when Han died really takes the movie up a notch. I always liked this movie, but now i feel it works better than i could ever imagine.

The restructuring really does have a great impact. It’s so seamless too. My first viewing of Force Awakens in years was with this edit and I honestly thought most edits were present in the original version. Taking a glance at the changelist afterwards was incredibly surprising.

And yeah, I also wouldn’t mind more TROS references/foreshadowing in a future edit. I think anything that makes this trilogy feel like one consistent story would be beneficial.

That’s the best feedback I can get, about being surprised by what’s in the cutlist after viewing.

Holdo hasn’t met Poe before TLJ, so I don’t think that’d fit well. Rose probably wouldn’t yet be anywhere but in the definite background, like an extra. It’d make more sense to put her sister in somewhere.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’m listening to the commentary for this now, and there’s a fantastic sense of impending doom hearing HAL talk about Rey’s parentage. We were all so blissfully oblivious back then.

Then remove the “Admiral Holdo? Battle of Chyron Belt Admiral Holdo?” bit from TLJ.

I don’t think I’ll do that.

And yeah, I bet there’s a fair bit of things in those 2 commentaries that would be twinged with sadness now.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

So, I saw in the Ascendant thread that you’re putting out a updated version of this that addresses some video issues. Does that have anything to do with the occasional white “flicker” on the far right side of the screen? I’m watching Restructured right now and am wondering if it’s an issue with my download or something more.

Also, I haven’t noticed this in prior viewings, but the color seems… Off. Everyone’s face looks a little too red. Has this been brought up before?

Author
Time

Yeah it’ll address that flicker thing. And I haven’t adjusted the color (for most scenes) from the BluRay.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Right on.

And I must be noticing the color grading since I just finished your OT Special Editions with their flawless video 😉

You could do updated commentaries if you’d like, Hal.

Haha! Good one! I can understand your reasonings, but it can honestly be fun. I’ve been wanting to record commentaries for my own edits too, but I don’t know how to add separate audio tracks to one video file.

Could Finn’s “you gotta boyfriend? a cute boyfriend?” be removed? A Rey/Finn romance is never established in the ST and it feels out of place. Plus it always felt kinda odd for Finn to be concerned about that during that moment.

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.

Eh, I don’t really feel a pull to remove it. There’s a few little things that don’t amount to much but is probably okay. I don’t feel then need to cut too much out.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
