THE LAST JEDI (REMANIED) - « NEVER SEEN BEFORE » CUT with NEW VFX

 (Edited)

Hello,
I am a videographer but above all a big fan of the SW universe,
I saw TLJ for the first time on December 13, 2017 (in France, the new films are released on Wednesdays), the film surprised me to the point of regretting some evolutions of our TFA heroes in this new adventure but I don’t hate it for all that and I respect the film’s unconditional fans.

I started by editing the film for a friend who is a fan of SW but especially for myself, I moved and restructured some scenes in my version, I was also very inspired by the editing of Ivan Ortega and “TLJ - The Clean Cut” by ForceGhostRecon, I recovered some special effects arrangements made available on YouTube or Vimeo you will find below, all the sources used for my editing. I hope and I wish not to be too much taken up in order by the original creators of the fan edits already present on this forum because I love their work and they are simply great, do not hesitate to watch also the other versions if it is not already done, because everyone has their own vision of a film.

So I put the film back together in its original version just for you, I already know that some of you will like this version which will give you, I hope, a new feeling when you watch it but I can also suspect that some things might displease you, if that is the case I invite you to share it with me to improve the V.2

MAJOR CHANGES:

  • The introduction reveals Snoke’s battleship earlier, it continues the end of TFA.
  • Snoke has a master and apprentice relationship with Kylo
  • When Kylo bursts his helmet, a strange vision comes to him…
  • Several deleted scenes have been added to the film
  • No Poe/Hux call joke
  • No Canto Bight arc with Rose and Finn (they both introduce themselves)
  • No Chewie Porgs BBQ
  • Luke assists Leia scene (by Ryan Glosemeyer)
  • No “Murder!, Snake!” vision with Kylo
  • Snoke’s guards have lightsabers (by Immersion VFX)
  • The Return of Luke’s Green Lightsaber (by ImmersionVFX)
  • Color Corrected Ach-to and Crait.
  • A lot of music has been modified or added.
  • There are many other changes I would like you to discover…

Hello, everyone,
Here is some information about this edit:

My opinion on some scenes of the film as well as the structure of the script pushed me to try to cut and arrange the functioning and evolution of the characters such as Kylo Ren’s failure or Rey’s quest to find Luke, staying in the continuity of TFA.

For the introduction of my version, I wanted to try something new with the Battlefront II video game universe, especially with the Unknown Regions, and I wanted to insert Snoke’s Supremacy earlier in the film in order to avoid the “joke” of the enemy ship getting bigger and bigger… after all the editing done by this beautiful fan community, we had to try something new without altering the plot. The following excerpts (which I will update) will be used to show you the direction I am taking on my own vision of the film.

ATTENTION: Edit available only in French
I hope that some of you fans will be inspired for their own editing in the original version.

I like that you cut the sword and went with Luke hiding 😃
That’s my favorite solution for this sequence!
May I suggest that you end it on Rey seeing the X-Wing under water ? That way we get from the start that Luke has changed.

You can cut Poe’s joke and go with the original Fin intro scene. Works much better as a reintroduction to the character.

Thank you for your opinion 4throck, I will indeed add the view shot of Luke’s x wing underwater.

Quite an interesting take on the start and pretty impressed on many of the edits which are rather bold and uncommon.

I think the brief ghost image of Vader’s melted helmet over Kylo’s helmet could be made a lot more convincing or done better. Maybe going into slow motion for that particular bit and then back to full speed after as he keeps smashing his helmet? That aside it is actually quite effective emotionally and a stroke of genius as to an insight to Kylo’s thoughts and feelings in that moment.

The other scene that obviously needs a lot of work still is the static images of the Resistance ships before we cut to Poe onboard - not convincing at all sorry if it was meant to be. I would reuse/repurpose existing footage for here. I think it also feels a little rushed in how quick Poe goes from being in the command room there to suddenly in his Xwing in front of the Dreadnaught.

Ive seen ForceGhostRecon’s edit and so I can already say that I really like many of the same VFX shots you included from his edit.

Will have to give the full edit a watch sometime to see what other interesting ways you have edited this movie. In the meantime, keep up the great work 😃
