Hey guys, have you thought of moving Kylo’s scar to match 8 and 9?

We did consider it, and then Sir Ridley did it. It’s already taken care of.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Thanks; done.

I know this project is pretty much complete, but I thought came to me if anyone has done VFX work to put young Ben Solo and Snoke when Rey looks down the hallway at Cloud City, and Luke and Vader fighting behind her.

I may have said this before, but just in case if I didn’t, just an idea.

Just to work them in somehow?

I’m not sure I see the point in doing that.

Luke and Vader fighting there was supposed to show up in the vision. It was filmed and everything, if I’m not mistaken. I believe the reason they didn’t use it is because:

  1. Hal is right that it doesn’t serve much of a purpose
  2. Luke’s face would have looked super wonky because they would have had to use CGI superimposed over the actor they had.

Maybe just add a CRT with ESB playing to the background of the Jakku part.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

What about young Ben Solo and Snoke? She saw them down the hallway in the novelisation.

Passage?

This is taken from the novel written by Alan Dean Foster.

A heavy, slow, mechanical breathing filled the room. Turning, she found herself looking down an impressive hallway, its architecture reminiscent of the Old Empire. Peering harder, farther, she saw in the distance a section of the famed Cloud City. Two figures were locked in combat, distant, distant. Someone, somewhere, somewhen, spoke her name.

“Hello?” Wreathed in the irrationality of the moment, she called hopefully, but received no answer.

A boy appeared at the end of the hallway. She started toward him, and the world turned inside out, causing her to trip and fall.

The name’s Lawson. Noah Lawson.

And up for interpretation, that only a book can provide, for who the boy is.

Save the Sebastian Shaw Ghost! Save the dream…!

True, I still think it would make sense for it to be Ben. Besides, it’s a fan edit, you can do whatever you want, but it’s Hal’s edit, and he can choose whether he wants it or not.

According to the old, leaked shooting schedule for TFA that was floating around the internet a few months before it’s release, there did seem to be a planned shot of young Ben with Snoke, in some shape or form. So you’re that probably was intended to be a young Ben.

The shooting schedule also mentioned shots of Leia and Han sending young Ben away with Luke, Ben training with him, and then leaving the Luke’s training temple. I don’t know if these were ever shot, though.

Regarding Hal’s edit, though, I think it is pretty much finished, so I think any big suggestions should be left for general edit threads for this film.

That’s right, it’d take something compelling to crack it open again, as it accomplished everything I wanted it to.

That said, I don’t really see how or why it’d be important to shoehorn Snoke and Ben into the sequence.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I don’t notice anything on the 1080p and TinyEncode. What version are you watching and can you describe further?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
