You’re right. That was a very well thought out, positive response to a meaningless anecdote.

I didn’t say it wasn’t negative, just not hostile. In my mind a hostile post would have gone through all the ways you were wrong right off the bat, which would have been an overreaction considering your post was, like you say meaningless, so so was mine. I guess I could have said “you’re wrong,” or “that’s incorrect,” instead, might have been a bit more thought out, but I’m not sure how I could have responded in the positive to a post that’s totally inaccurate.

But that’s just the thing. I wasn’t trying to give some long unknown insight into the creative process of this film that needed to have holes poked in it. I was giving a witty remark in response to the comment implying that it was done purposely to please faneditors. You took seriously a comment that was an anecdotal response to a joke and came off as a bit arrogant in the process.

Didn’t realize you were involved in the production and in the know about what Disney requested, cool, my bad.

Was not saying that. I was merely wagering a guess as to why scenes were changed.

Considering the scenes in question had humor added to the version that was released, it stands to reason the people involved saw the rough cut and said there needs to be a humor beat here.

I think your first mistake is thinking those scenes were changed. Seems like those deleted scenes were in addition to, not instead of what’s there in the theatrical.

(second mistake would be assuming that if something got changed it had to be someone other than Rian making that decision)

I’m not assuming anything. I’m taking an educated guess based on my own industry experience and a knowledge of Johnson’s previous work. He’s not known for the kind of humor presented here, whereas its present in every new Star Wars release thus far, so it’s reasonable those kinds of decisions were made at a corporate level. And many scenes were very clearly alternate, if not necessarily the ones in question.

No, Rian has stated in multiple interviews that he wanted to put a lot of humor into the film.

Only because the Corporate Suits at Disney made him say it.

Shh, no duh, why do you think I’m defending the movie at all, Disney’s got my family held at mousepoint.

Just strange that you think your post was a witty remark, but mine was “rude.” I mean, I guess it wasn’t that funny even though it was supposed to be (then again yours wasn’t either, maybe we just have different senses of humor).

As for arrogant, do you mean this one, which wasn’t even directed at you?

DominicCobb said:

Again, just joking around man. Don’t have to take things so personal (especially, like I said, when it’s not directed at you).

The implication here about what I do is very funny (I suppose you think I just spend all my time dicking around on the internet).

If you’re actually like an executive or someone important, I apologize and take it all back. Ruined that networking opportunity I suppose.

While I agree with a lot of people’s issues with Maz’s cameo in TLJ and can understand people who would want to remove it altogether, I wanted to suggest a lighter trimming of that scene for those who would rather make smaller changes throughout.

First, if one were to remove the trade dispute reference, you could try to infer that she is fighting the First Order on another planet. It might help get the idea across that there is fighting going on across the galaxy. Maybe some additional sound effects could help with this.

Second, I also wonder if cutting Maz saying that she could do it herself would raise the stakes a little because then only the Master Codebreaker would be good enough to do it.

So, something like, “Can I do it? I can’t do it, but lucky for you, there is exactly one guy I trust who can crack that kind of security.” or “Can I do it? Of course I can do it! But I can’t do it, I’m a little tied down right now. But lucky for you…”

I’m not saying these changes would make it better. But the scene always felt a little off to me, and I wonder if something like one of these ideas could help with the scene a little. Just some thoughts.

I thought the scene had to stay for just making sense of the plot but I cut out the sexual joke of her saying “He can do everythingggg…”

Haha, yeah I can totally see why you would want to.

I have seen others suggest cutting away after Poe points at Finn, and then have Rose say “Poe said he would have a red plom blume on his lapel” rahter than ‘Maz’, but I’m not sure it would work, and you would also be cutting Finn giving Poe the binary beacon.

So, I’m watching “The Fallen Knight” right now (the first fanedit of The Last Jedi). As I watch it, I’m just going to edit this post with my thoughts. I will tell you that, at least initially, while I value what the creator was going for with this project, I can absolutely say that this is clearly rushed in an effort to hold the title of being the first TLJ fanedit. It’ll get some traction, but I really hope we get some high quality edits out of this film.

Okay, here are my thoughts on what was good or bad. (Updated in real time.)

The ENTIRE exchange between Poe and Hux has been cut from the beginning of the film.

I think this was a bad decision. I think cutting SOME of the conversation would have been good, but not all of it. Keep the “Hello, holding for Hux,” etc. at least for the first line of their exchange, but cut out the “tall, pasty guy” remark Poe says. And of course, cut out the “your mom” joke. But cutting the whole exchange makes it very obvious there has been a cut, especially because Hux out of nowhere screams, “OPEN FIRE!” when it’s just one X-Wing fighter that he suddenly wants to blast out of the sky, when he seemed amused by it just moments earlier.

When BB-8 fixes Poe’s X-Wing by jamming his whole head into the instrumentation panel

I would have taken this out. I think it was pretty silly.

When Paige Tico (the Resistance bomber pilot) kicks the ladder to make the bomb remote fall

First of all, I thought this scene took WAY too long. I kept yelling at my TV, “JUST CLIMB UP THE LADDER AND PRESS THE BUTTON!” It took like 45 seconds. If I were editing this, I would have given it like two kicks, and then the remote falls. Maybe, while it is falling, interject the shot of it falling with the other battle scenes that are shown during this sequence. Also, the end where she catches the remote as it is falling I thought was a little too cliché, even for Star Wars.

Luke drops the lightsaber instead of tossing it over his shoulder

Much better. It’s a little short (looks like the editor just cut the shot just before he tosses it). I wish we could have a shot of it at his feet or something. Maybe if someone feels like getting into costume?

The inclusion of the “Luke Mourns” deleted scene

I think this was really good to have. Shows that Luke isn’t entirely heartless like he comes across as for so much of this film.

Deleted the space cow boobs and giant fish scene

This was probably for the best. But now, when Rey and Luke talk at the ancient tree, she says to him, “Why can’t you teach me? I’ve seen your daily routine. You’re not busy.” Well, now she hasn’t seen his daily routine. So either that line needs to be cut or cow boobs needs to stay.

Adding the deleted scene where Poe catches up Finn and gives him his jacket (“not much of a sewer”).

GREAT addition, in my opinion. Adds so much more to Finn’s character. Should have been in the final film.

Cutting the Resistance cruiser explosion / Leia floating though space

I’m really glad that the Leia floating through space scene was cut… but the editor also cut the bridge explosion entirely. So… I’m wondering how they’re going to explain Leia’s injury / absence from the rest of the film. UPDATE: I’m realizing that the editor cut out all of the scenes involving the Resistance after this point. The movie just becomes a big Rey / Luke training sequence… honestly, I’m kinda digging it. Maybe a single cut back to Resistance would be good, I don’t know.

Chewie eating the porg as the porgs watch

I would have been fine with keeping the first shot and him growling (hey a little humor in Star Wars is good), but the close up / “sad eyes” of the porg is just too over-the-top for me.

The first Force / mind meld with Rey and Kylo has been shortened

Why? This didn’t make any sense to me. It was so abrupt. Luke just says, “Let’s get started,” and then we see Rey walking away. No indication if Kylo is following them or why she didn’t say anything about it. Easily the sloppiest part of this edit so far. The editor also gets rid of the natives on the island — I think I may agree with that. I kind of like the island being completely secluded.

Cutting the “reach out” / tickling with the leaf moment

I never really had a problem with this scene. I know some people are very anti-humor in Star Wars, but I almost think this scene should have stayed. I mean, he’s talking about reaching out with the Force and making rocks float, it’s taking itself way too seriously. A little moment of slapstick is fine because it’s not overdone. Reminds me of Yoda in ESB. I would have kept it.

During that same Luke / Rey training scene (when she first sees the cave in her mind)

Almost wondering if it would be worth playing a subtle version of the Imperial March here. Or whatever music played in ESB when Luke went to the cave. Maybe not.

The Cave sequence

I’ve never fully understood this sequence, and maybe something could be improved here, I don’t know. Maybe better to leave it alone.

Yoda could use some color correction

Yoda is way too saturated as a force ghost. Not in all the shots with him, but many of them, particularly at first.

For the first time since the Leia floating in space scene was cut, we’re catching up with the Resistance. Leia never got injured and the Canto Bight sequence never happened.

At this point in the movie, we’ve been watching Rey almost the entire time. It’s been almost 30 minutes and we haven’t checked in with the Resistance or Poe or Finn. While at first I didn’t mind the longer sequences spent with Rey and Luke, it became TOO long and I found myself wondering, “What happened since last we saw the rest of the characters?”

Turns out we don’t see them again until Rey leaves the island. The next scene is Leia telling Holdo to get on the transport to escape. As soon as Holdo came on, I was like, “Who is this chick?” This is seriously our first introduction to her? I think way too much got cut here. Also just some bad editing here, obvious music cuts.

I think Canto Bight has to stay. At least some of it. I have some ideas for what could happen here in my own edit, but I’ll leave those comments elsewhere.

We don’t see Poe again until after the Resistance is on the shuttles escaping the crusier

This is way too long. We haven’t seen him since the beginning of the space chase. No idea where Finn is during this time. Just everything after this part doesn’t make sense. Suddenly the First Order is attacking the Resistance because, in the actual film, Finn and friends gave away the Resistance’s plan.

Throne room sequence

Only thing I would have changed here would have been shortening the sequence where Kylo Ren spins the lightsaber toward Snoke. I like keeping Snoke’s death a little more of a surprise and I don’t want to just give it away what’s about to happen.

We see Finn for the first time since the beginning of the film after they’ve landed on Crait. This is also the first time we see Rose.

Again, this just seems like way too long. We’ve gone almost the entire movie without seeing Finn. It also makes Rose’s sisters sacrifice mean nothing, the amulet around her neck, etc.

Total cut of the Finn sacrifice scene and Rose kiss

I’m glad the Rose kiss is gone, but I kinda wish Finn’s (attempted) sacrifice stayed. I think it’s a huge part of his character arc from The Force Awakens

Kylo Ren / Luke Skywalker battle

How difficult would it be to make Luke hold his green saber instead of his blue? Or is the blue saber more symbolic?


Long story short… I think this was a good first fanedit for The Last Jedi. There were some things I really liked, such as the extended time spent with Rey / Luke training (although it was too long and we didn’t check in with our other heroes even once during that period).

I don’t think Canto Bight can be cut completely. It needs to stay, or at least some of it needs to. That was the biggest change with this film. But doing it completely, took away from the rest of the characters and it was just too much.

Overall, I enjoyed it, but I don’t doubt others will have more creative implementations of their own fanedits.

So I have one crazy idea for how one could theoretically give Snoke an origin in the Last Jedi, and this would be using the Darth Plagieus theory from before the film came out. This could probably be a bit more refined, but I just thought this up now.

Basically, in the mirror vision scene Rey has, she never asks about her parents, she just walks toward the mirror, reaching out to it. As she does, we would begin hearing the line from ROTS where Palpatine talks about Darth Plagieus being whispered in the background, with music building it up. Eventually, Palpatine would say Darth Plagiues the Wise, which would start repeating a bit, getting louder as it does, and we’d then get a snapshot of Snoke’s face in the mirror, and that is when Rey wakes up from the vision.

I don’t think Luke should ignite his green lightsaber in his version of the story of confronting Ben in his hut.

When Kylo tells the story, Luke has his saber ignited and ready to land a maniacal blow. But, when Luke sets the record straight, I think it would have been more effective to show him holding the hilt, but fall short of actually igniting it.

That being said, it’s probably outside the realm of possibility to actually make it that way. It sure would have made that scene less off-putting without sacrificing its purpose.

I loved it when I first saw it, but the more I thought about it the more continuity errors and other issues I noticed. Holdo and Rose appear out of nowhere and Finn is only in the first and last 15 minutes of the entire film. The scene of Poe getting demoted is intact yet feels jarring as Poe’s entire arc is otherwise cut. I’m also baffled as to why it didn’t cut things like the ridiculous telegraphing of Snoke’s death and the Chewie eating a porg. It felt rushed and more of a template for future, more in depth edits. I still enjoyed parts of it and the inclusion of the deleted scenes was really well implemented.
