Well, I actually loved this edit! I love the different pacing, and especially how you treated both Luke and the First Order.

while I very much enjoyed the Last Jedi and saw it 3 times in the theater , I like some of what you did here . some of my impressions after seeing this… …I like the altered musical cues you used as well as the transitions showing the passage of time and the flashback to TFA just before Finn wakes from his Coma was a nice touch

Great ideas with the training scenes, and improving Luke’s disposition!

Hi lantern51, I’ll admit I registered to see your cut of the movie. I’m genuinely curious to see it especially after the positive feedback I have seen people on the thread give.

So, (as I can see this being annoying, I’m sorry), could I have the link to the cut? Thanks.

edit: I’m specifically asking for the 475MB or the 4GB links.

Ya. I don’t do much to contribute anything unfortunately.

That’s a tad nonspecific 😛

Shoot the editor a PM when asking for links. I’m yet to watch the edit myself but like you, heard good things about it and am interested to see how they’ve tackled some specific scenes.

I realized that I never did a cut list on here? Sorry about that. This list is from an earlier version of the movie, so there are actually a few other things that I could add to the list, but it’s already long enough lol…

  • To short cut some of this list, I will say that I cut ALL progs out of the movie and there is no Canto Bight subplot nor any subplot with Finn and Rose. I’m also not going to mention everytime I added music to a scene. As you will see, this is already going to be a long list 😃

  • Added Fanedit.org opening and custom Disney with Fox music created by Digmodifaction

  • Removed the opening on the planet. Used part of the opening from the Alt. Opening to show Poe in a command position and his thoughts before taking on the Dreadnaut.

  • Cut Poe joking with Hux

  • Cut BB8 shoving his head into the ships circuits

  • Cut girl saying “Bombs Away”

  • Cut EVERYTHING between Hux and Snoke after the Dreadnaunt blows up.

  • Added a deleted scene of Kylo Ren looking out the ships window.

  • Cut Fin Hitting his head a 2nd time

  • Added a dream for Finn to show what his last memory of Rey was

  • Cut Finn slipping

  • Added some deleted footage of Finn waking up

  • Cut scene with Rey and Luke handing over lightsaber and Luke tossing it. It now cuts to Rey wondering into the village and knocking on Lukes hut.

  • Cut Rey mentioning Leia sending her.

  • Cut Rey sitting on cliff and seeing Luke X-Wing in the water

  • Cut Rey translating Chewie for Luke. Luke just understands Chewie

  • Added deleted Luke has a Moment

  • Cut Snoke calling Kylo the next Vader

  • Cut Snoke saying that he was mistaken

  • Cut Snoke saying to Kylo to take off his helmet

  • Cut the Snoke line about being a child in a mask

  • Cut the multiple smashes of Kylos helmet in the elevator.

  • Moved the scene where Luke visits the Falcon to here. He just found out about his best friend passing not long ago, it didn’t feel right to me that he would wait so long to visit.

  • Cut Lukes lines on the Falcon after he sees R2. The scene ends with him putting his hand on R2 and saying “Old Friend”

  • Cut the entire scene where Rey is lecturing Luke and Luke being grumpy and telling her to go away and he mentioned his “Laser Sword”

  • Cut the whole Milking the animal

  • Took parts of him hopping around the island and used later in the movie for Training Montage

  • Moved close up of Leia sitting by herself with hand on her head to here

  • Added Poe giving Finn Jacket back

  • Cut “They found us” line. It’s used in the opening now

  • Split this scene into two separate scenes. I cut this at the point when they run off to battle after Poe asks for permisson to jump in an x-wing and blow something up.

  • Moved the moment when Rey finds the Force Tree to here.

  • Cut all the dialog in the Force Tree between Luke and Rey after Luke Says “You need a teacher”.

  • Added dialog of Luke saying “Tomorrow, I will teach you the ways of the Jedi”.

  • Started up scene back to the battle that I split before. With Kylo saying “Follow my lead”

  • Cut Leia getting blown out the side of the ship

  • Cut Marry Poppins Leia

  • Cut Lukes 3 lessons scene

  • Cut conversation between Poe and Holdo

  • Added deleted scene of Finn and BB8

  • Cut Finn and Rose meeting

  • Cut 90% of the caretakers as Rey is looking around the village after blowing a hole in the wall and Luke asks what that was about.

  • End the scene after Luke says “Let’s get started”

  • Moved scene where medical freighter gets blown up to here.

  • Cut the “It’s been an Honor Admiral scene

  • Created a scene that shows Finn giving Poe the tracker for Rey to follow.

  • Come back to scene where Luke is going to train Rey

  • Cut Rey looking into the dark side and Luke running scared.

  • Created a Training Montage for Rey and Luke.

  • Cut 2nd Force meeting between Rey and Kylo

  • Cut Rey training on her own (See montage)

  • Cut Rey almost hitting the care takers with falling rocks

  • Cut Luke being so cynical about the Jedi and this is no longer “Lesson 2” It’s simply a bonding moment after the training montage where Luke is opening up to Rey about what happened with Kylo

  • Pushed the scene where Luke goes out on ledge and meditates and sees Leia in a coma to later in the movie. This is now Lukes call to action moment.

  • Cut shirtless Kylo and the 3rd Force meeting with Rey and Kylo. I used the dialog and Kylo’s version of events later in the movie.

  • Cut Rey going down the hole to look for answers

  • Added dialog from 3rd force meeting with Rey and Kylo plus added Kylo’s version of events to the 4th Force meeting (Only the 2nd Force meeting in my cut).

  • Added Snoke dialog from various places to give incentive to Rey to attack Luke

  • Cut Luke falling over when Rey hits him

  • Created a scene of Snoke and Kylo when luke says “Snoke had already turned his heart”

  • Cut Luke going for his lightsaber while Kylo is sleeping

  • Cut Rey talking about seeing his future. This is already talked about between Rey and Kylo later, we don’t need it here.

  • Cut Rey trying to hand Luke the lightsaber and Luke turning his head away

  • Cut Rey saying that Kylo is their last hope

  • Cut Luke trying to burn down the Jedi tree

  • Unfortunately that means Yoda is also cut from the movie

  • Moved the last support ship getting blown up to later in the movie

  • Cut everything between Poe and Holdo after he asks if she’s fueling up the transports

  • Cut the mutiny subplot

  • Cut Leia busting in a taking out Poe. Remember, I cut the mutiny

  • Cut the exchange between Holdo and Leia

  • Cut the squeeky noise coming from Rey’s nose while Snoke is talking to her

  • Cut Poe waking up on the transport ship. He was never knocked out in this version

  • Added Poe’s surprised “Leia” dialog from earlier in the movie

  • Cut Snokes line about giving Luke the death he desires. Luke is not like that in this cut.

  • Cut Snoke referring to Kylo as Heir to Vader

  • Trimmed down the opening battle with Rey/Kylo and the Red Guards

  • Cut the 2nd time we flash to the fight with the Red Guards

  • Trim the spot where the Red guard gets tossed in the blinder and “Poofs” out of the top so it’s less distracting from the fight.

  • Trimmed the scene when Rey is fighting the Red guard with 2 bladed and then magically only has one so she we don’t wonder how he didn’t stab her in the back with it, so it’s not so obvious.

  • Cut Kylo asking Rey about her parents

  • Cut Rey saying that they were nobody

  • Moved Hux saying to keep your fire on the transports to earlier in the film to help feel like more time passed in between cuts of the fight with the Red guards

  • Cut Kylo asking Rey and saying “Please”

  • Cut Finn and Rose crashing into the door of the base for obvious reasons

  • Moved the shot of Tie Fighter pilot targeting Rose to later in the movie

  • Cut Hux repeating Kylo saying “concentrate all firepower on those speeders” and Kylo giving him a dirty look.

  • Cut Rose Taking out Finns speeder.

  • Added Tie Fighter Sound FX

  • Placed Tie Fighter shot previously mentioned here

  • Cut Kylo comically tossing Hux to the side after blowing Luke up doesn’t work

  • Moved the scene of Poe and Finn talking to before Kylos ship comes down

  • Moved Poe talking about an escape and looking for a tunnel out to before Luke and Kylo talk

  • Cut the ending with the kids. We go from the Falcon to the end credits

Hi guys! I know that I have been away for a while. I have been working about 55 hours a week, then I had some family issues that I had to take some time for. Then I have been busy on fanedit trying to re-work this edit. I still have online links to the original edit that has been commented on by people who have seen it. But I’m trying to make it better and following the advice as best I can of other editors.

The first thing that I have to work on is the sound transition into the first scene change that I made in the movie. So I wanted to try and change up the music as idea presented to me by Didgmod. This is my first attempt at new music from one of the games. I know there is a "click at 12 seconds in and I did not add the “whoosh” sound FX yet. I’m looking to see if I can get the audio transitions right first. Let me know if this works for you guys!

Hi lantern51,

watched your recent clip suggesting the sound transition and here is my feedbacK: How about instead of transitioning from the opening flute to the second track to just cut it from the flute to the drums. So in other words leaving the opening flute until second 19 or 20 of your sample clip and cut it immediately into the tam tada tadam drums. I hope that was somewhat understandable? 😄

I think I get what you mean lol… Thanks. I will work on it 😃

I would love a link, if you could send me a PM!
I watched a TON of fanedits for the prequels, but have yet to delve into the Disney generation yet… VERY EXCITED!

Hi again everyone. I am still working on the 2nd version of the cut of this movie and I think I have the opening set up that I need. Again, this is me trying to clean up the audio. So I am replacing some music to help flow from once scene to another. I added back in some special fx. This is the result and let me know what you think. I was already approved on the cut from the Star Wars traditional music to the cut of the new music as we pan in on the ship, so now I’m working on the transition to the Deleted Scene with Poe.

I wanted to take a second to say that you to all of you! This has been a great experience and a wonderful community!

I didn’t know what to expect when I decided to post on here. But I need to give a special shout out and much gratitude to ForceGhostRecon! If you haven’t checked out this guys edit yet, please go support him.

ForceGhostRecon did something for me that I really needed to make my edit feel complete. He let me use the Green Lightsaber footage! Seriously, how amazing is that!

I want to send out links to my updated cut. There’s more going on than just the color of the lightsaber that I did. but that alone would have made me want to send you all out links, so keep an eye on your inbox if you have PM’d in the past for a copy of this cut.

I really wanted to make sure I did this open and public to thank ForceGhostRecon because it meant so much to me and I wanted everyone to know what kind of person we have here. I refuse to take credit for someone else’s work. So if you appreciate my cut and feel that Green just makes it better, then you have him to thank.

I love ForceGhost, he’s such a soulful man who as brought back SW for me as been in limbo since TLJ. I must admit that there was a lot to like in TLJ but it didn’t flow from TFA and felt like a completely different movie. I felt the opening 40 Minutes or so of TFA had a magical quality.

As you know, I am working on another cut of the movie. I’m trying to polish it a bit more than my original cut. So if there are ANY EDITORS that can help me with this, you will have my undying gratitude!!! My software is just not capable of doing this.
