No it’s a great idea!!

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them.

This is my attempt to redo ROTJ’s ending with a non-diegetic piece from the 1983 soundtrack (namely, “Luke and Leia”). A bunch of other fanedits have done this (e.g., the Dan Edit), but I wanted to demonstrate it with the 1983 cut of the ending. I sped up the music a little, for better sync.

Here’s the vimeo link.

That is really great! I feel like something could be done at the very end to help transition to the credits music. It just feels a bit jarring, it feels like it is missing some kind of build up or something. But honestly that is a perfect track to use for the ending!

Thanks! The way that song goes is that it builds up to a big note, then quiets down. I didn’t want to have the big note/crash happen, let the music quiet down (but not finish the song), then start the end credits (that felt more jarring).

“Luke and Leia” makes for a far better ending theme to the OT than “Yub Nub” or “Victory Celebration”/the 500 Nations emulation. Its tone doesn’t clash as much with the pyre piece or even “Leia Breaks the News” (which I like shortened, to eliminate envious Han).
