One thing that stood out to me was Hux going from a frantic “OPEN FIRE” to being calm and collected just a couple shots later. It’s one of the only things that stood out as a potential “acting continuity” error. Not much to do there if you are keeping with all comedy removed in that scene though- so I do understand.

That was in the original version, though. All the trimming occurred before the “OPEN FIRE” line.

Haha, and so it is. I hadn’t revisited the theatrical cut (or any cut of TLJ) in some time! Also wow, I thought there was an interim reaction shot of Hux, or another exchange prior to “he’s insane.” It’s just never flowed perfectly there I guess.

Now that I have sat on (one watch of) this edit a bit longer, I do think the only thing that feels wanting is the lack of Admiral Holdo. Poe’s “that’s Admiral Holdo?” exchange cutting right into the next Rey/Luke scene feels a bit jumpy. And the fact that we can’t explain the shift of focus from Leia to Holdo as Resistance figurehead because… nothing has happened to Leia in this cut.

All that said, there’s probably nothing to build Holdo up as more of a character prior to her self sacrifice without having direct references to the mutiny plotline, and almost everything that comes out of her mouth is just being a bullheaded and low caliber leader. I think my conclusion on this is wishing there was more deleted scene wiggle room on what the Blu Ray supplied.

This may be my preferred version of TLJ now, though, honestly!

That’s what I thought. I wish there was more deleted scenes of Holdo. If you want to make an edit in which she is not arrogant and a terrible leader, you don’t have much to work with.

I really enjoyed this edition, great job man! Better than original EPVIII from far.

So that was…woah.

As usual with TLJ edits, Canto bight is not missed at all which leaves a lot of Kelly Tran on the cutting room floor. But this particular edit incorporates the use of Rose’s & Paige’s medallion that they wear ( I can’t remember if it’s name is referenced in the original besides that its made of a particular gold ). And even if it’s not explicitly said that they’re related (Since most edits cut this out), you get a sense that they are and what sacrifice Rose is willing to make in that final battle.

Rey’s training, using that score and the cut work in this edit is phenomenal, Luke is still a bit uptight and down in the dumps, he’s still scared of Rey’s potential, but he does train her, in this edit it just feels so smooth. I could’ve cut the whole ‘Rey actually reaches out and Luke smacks her’, but maybe thats just me. and sad to see the X-Wing didn’t appear in this edit as far as I could tell. (Also this seems like the best not throwing away the lightsaber edit I’ve seen)

Holdo is still Holdo, there’s not a lot you can do with her if you want the whole Poe vs Holdo gone, I enjoyed what you did. She’s regarded as an Admiral that wins battles, and she sacrifices herself to win this battle. (I was watching with a friend, and he said that since you kept Leia and Ackbar alive the whole movie, this could have been an edit where Ackbar does the self-sacrifice, there’s several good edits of it floating around. I found this amusing)

Re-scoring Luke vs Kylo, and keeping the saber green was just great. It fits in really well, and doesn’t get the audience too confused as to why his lightsaber is suddenly blue, while in the flashback(s) it was green.

Overall this is a stellar edit, everything that isn’t needed from the film is just left out. We don’t need Canto Bight, Poe vs Holdo, Lukes routine, Rose’s poor choice of words (Sorry Kelly Train). And everything we want is right there for us to enjoy. This is as close to loving TLJ as i’ll get, thank you.

Mega changed their free cloud storage from 50 to 15gb. So I will have to change file size from 21gb to ~15. It’s not 100% blu-ray-quality anymore but I think it’s still very good.

First of all, sorry by my english.
I like the Hal 9000 and Poppasketti edits of this movie, but all the Finn/Rose and Canto Bight subplot is subpar and distracting for me.
I’ve watched your version and it’s my new favorite one now. All the little changes, Rey’s training edit, final battle edit, the new and epic music, the Caretakers, …
Thanks for finally publishing your version, it’s amazing!
By now, I have my 3 ST movies:
VII The Force Awakens Restructured (Hal 9000)
VIII The Last Jedi Reforged (MMP)
IX The Rise of Skywalker Ascendant (Hal 9000)
Thanks to Hal 9000 and Poppasketti too and to everyone involved in these projects.
I’ll be waiting for your future edits!

Thank you very much for your kind words. I love Hals Episode 7 & 9. But never found a Version of 8 that I liked. Thats why I made my edit.

Hi,
After seeing this edit again, I think it is a nearly perfect version for my taste and a great improvement over the original.
If you ever use your magic in your own version of TRoS, I’ll be looking forward to seeing it!

Thanks for the kind words 😃
But I don’t think I will recut TRoS.
I think Hal9000 has done an incredible job with almost every SW-fan-edit he made.
I loved his versions of 1-7. But I didnt like TLJ. There was still too much Rian-Johnson-nonsense in it. Thats why I made my own version of TLJ.
When it comes to TRoS Ascendant, I think he did it right in almost every part. There is not much I would change. First I was concerned if there would be problems or plot holes between my version of TLJ and TRoS Ascendant, but it works almost flawless. So for me, there is no need to change anything.
I found my favorite versions of Star Wars 1-9, Rogue one and Solo (both from Digmodification) and I don’t think I will edit any SW-Content soon.
I will continue recutting movies I don’t liked in cinema.
Atm I’m working on a recut of The Lone Ranger. But I’m not sure if I will upload it, cause I don’t think there is much audience who want to see it 😉

What’s your favorite cuts of 1-9?

1-3: L8WRTR & Hal9000, both are awesome.
4-6: depends…If you like original versions then Harmys version. They have an awesome image quality, but sound quality is 70s/80s Stereo. I prefer watching Hal9000s’ Special Editions.
7: Hal9000
8: Mine XD
9: Hal9000

Wow! That song synced to the lightsaber training moment works… surprisingly well. It sounds brand new but the key notes really drive at nostalgia in an effective way.

This was also the movie that introduced me to fan editing. I would be interested in checking this out!

Thanks,
Adam

It’s not a song. It doesn’t really fit a star wars movie in my view. It changes the scene so instead of fear Like shows awe and nostalgia but then it goes on a little too long. I would have ended just after the rock is cut and we see Luke’s expression.

May I please get a link to this fan edit? This seems like my cup of tea, minus the caretaker’s presence. What cues to Palpatine’s arrival in TROS did you insert into this edit? So far FallenKnight’s edit has been my favorite version of TLJ, but seems a little too short for my taste. I am really looking forward to this. Thanks!
