This is one of the best TLJ edits out there. IMHO poppaskeeti has done the best of job of editing out the worst parts of the film without affecting the pacing.

Steve, thanks so much for the kind feedback, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! The way you stated it, removing the worst bits, is exactly the goal of the project.

jediplougher, you did it correctly, and I just replied to your PM!

Here’s a suggestion: when Rise of Skywalker comes out on DVD, try inserting the Knights of Ren into the background of a few scenes, such as the first throne room scene with Snoke and Kylo, as well as the scenes in Kylo’s shuttle on Crait. (Yes, it’s confirmed the Knights of Ren will appear in IX)

Thanks for the idea! I’m not sure how necessary that will be, but we’ll see after IX comes out. I realize there’s a lot of literature about them, but for me, what counts most is what’s in the films, and the Knights are really only hinted at so far.

Here’s another suggestion: insert Palpatine’s evil laugh from the IX trailer after the credits, thus foreshadowing his potential return. Here’s the version of the trailer without music, so you wouldn’t have to waste time having to remove the music that begins at the end of the evil laugh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cW6QAVPJ5FQ

Great Job!

Thank-you - This made TLJ watchable for me …

I’m happy to see you didn’t over-cut, choosing to make mostly subtle changes. I did however appreciate the complete removal of the jarring, “Leah Poppins” and Rose, “Suicidal Rescue” scenes … 😃

This will be my “go-to” version of the movie.

Thanks

FreezingTNT, I think I’m going to wait until after IX comes out to see how it affects TLJ. There will likely be some adjustments needed to make the films match, but it’s hard to say this far out!

Caroline, thanks for the feedback, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I encourage you to check out some of the other fanedits on this forum, as there’s a lot of faneditors with very interesting ideas here!

Hi poppasketti,

If you’re planning to do Rekindled v2.0 of the edit I’ve been watching a couple of Ivan Ortega’s livestream and Ivan showed his edit of the fight scene between Finn and Phasma where he removed the cringy dialogue. Both “Let’s go chrome dome” and the “Rebel scum” line were removed and it’s actually quite watchable. So, if you ever do a v2.0 edit it may be worth introducing the fight scene back in again with these changes. Cheers mate.

Steve, thanks for the suggestion, and it’s something I can look st for V2, but for me, the issue with the Phasma fight is just not the one-liners but that the scene felt forced. It was a boss battle that was rehashing the same conflict Finn dealt with in TFA, making him choose sides again. This time he’s choosing the rebellion, not just Rey, but I think that idea is conveyed alrwady without this on-the-nose fight. It also interrupts the momentum of the climactic moments of the film. Still, I’m curious to see the other takes on it!

I think that is a good point poppa. If you think about it, Finn’s change of heart, to fighting for someone to fighting for something, is reiterated quite a few times:

  1. When Finn tells DJ he’s wrong
  2. The “Rebel scum” line
  3. The “where we belong” deleted scene
  4. Finn’s motivational speech to the Resistance on Crait
  5. Finn almost sacrificing himself for the Resistance

Especially with the “Where we belong” scene reinserted, the “rebel scum” moment is a bit redundant.

I’ve had this thought of keeping the fight but removing their final lines about “scum”. Instead, it would be interesting if one were to keep Phasma looking at Finn, but add in the sound of shaky breath from under her helmet, almost implying that she is afraid. Finn looks at her, and then she falls to her death. Something like that might make Phasma a little more sympathetic in her final moments, and remind Finn that the stormtroopers are victims too.

I think Finn has just disassociated himself from his past identity out of guilt and shame, and a reminder could be nice hint at his plot in IX if they go in that direction with him and a stormtrooper rebellion. The alternate Phasma death seemed to hint at that, and while it is not in a condition to be actually used, a change like this could potentially hint at that idea still.
