Just watched the workprint. Liked the flashbacks, the “ok!” Edit, Loved the “I will be your protocol Droid” and the “Kill me now” joke.
The overall feel and pacing is so much better.

Things that stood out.

Surprised you kept the Rey handing over of Saber continuety issue in.

Finn saying “look sharp” to R2 seems the same as Leia saying “take that expression off your face” to 3PO in TLJ.

Weird audio issue from group falcon scene to vaders mask.

Soundtrack clash coming out of above scene.

Desert chase feels a little cold in tone.

Did you add the trooper saying “move animal” to Chewie?

Are you adding KoR voices?

A huge improvement on your previous versions. Nice work everyone!

Hal kept that TLJ line in, so I don’t see the problem.

That’s from Skenera. He did a separate color correction for Passana, trying to make the colors less warm.

Did you add the trooper saying “move animal” to Chewie?

No, it was in the original version.

Are you adding KoR voices?

I think Hal said he would, but Axianlan’s work hasn’t been finished yet.

My preferred Skywalker Saga experience:
I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX

Hmm, what audio issue do you notice on the transition into Dom’s Kylo vision sequence? Nothing sticks out to me.

And yeah, I guess Finn’s new first line does sort of reflect that 3PO line. I don’t think that’s a bad thing, but I hadn’t thought of that.

And I definitely do plan to use at least a little KoR dialogue once that material is ready.

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

If doing a Rey nobody version, would you remove Palpatine offering the throne to Rey by re-purposing it as Palpatine telling her to kill him so she could give in to the Dark Side?

The name’s Lawson. Noah Lawson.

I just watched the new workprint, I love the new colors on Passana & Exegol, the drab grays really make it feel desolate & evil. However, jonh’s ghosts now become gray at their darkest points, specially Obi-Wan & Anakin on the initial close-ups. Seems a bit off to me.

Also I agree it feels weird to not have at least one or two CAPITAL words on the crawl when the previous films in the trilogy have them.

  • And, finally, when Kylo confronts Rey about being a Palpatine… I found myself still cringing at Kylo saying “You’re his granddaughter”, is there anyway to axe “You’re his granddaughter” and keep “You’re a Palpatine” and then have Kylo continue with “My mother was the daughter of Vader and your father was the son of the Emperor” instead of him blatantly saying “your his granddaughter”… it just sounds weird lol

There is no way to make that twist natural xD

I don’t notice anything that sounds out of the ordinary with the mask sequence. To be sure, what you hear isn’t in the original, right?

I don’t know about a Rey Nobody cut’s version of that scene. I basically plan to just copy Dom for the relevant scenes.

That Poe shot is nice, but it seems like we’d basically have to swap it for another anyway.

And the PT and OT each have a movie with no capital letters in their crawl. Same goes for my edits of them.

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

Okay, just wanted to make sure it wasn’t originally as the mask pieces first appear.

And about the saber continuity thing: That doesn’t bother me and I don’t want to remove a scene just because of it or anything.

Much appreciated, too!

The colors look great on the downloaded version. This is coming together nicely.

Are the stormtroopers still going to say “Knights of Ren… Ghouls” or are you planning on making them silent and just look at each other? Seems like half of us thought they were saying “cool”.

How does everyone feel about trimming the flying trooper that deflates when shot? It feels like a cartoon and might as well show Wylie Coyote chasing after the Roadrunner. Here are a few variations I put together to reduce the silliness.

I never get what people have against that flying trooper going like a balloon, I feel is just nitpicking. Is a silly moment in a silly franchise, what’s so wrong about it?

the dark side of the force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural

I would love for them to be silent and just have that look of unease. We don’t need them to give us story details.

The Skywalker Saga:
I / II / III / IV / V / VI / VII / VIII / IX
This is the way.

I don’t have a problem with the ‘ghouls’ line. It’s a quick expositional aside. I actually think it’s kind of funny some people thought he said “cool.” And now it’s a fun moment for it.

And I’ll leave the exploding fly…trooper (?) as is. The excessive explosion is this trilogy’s Grievous death.

Here is a real quick mock-up of Kylo saying “you’re a Palpatine” instead of you’re his granddaughter. Super rough as I’m not good with audio but this is atleast how it would flow

And here is the other way that was mentioned, which has it end after Kylo says “You have his power” I feel like there would need to be more silence before we show Rey’s shocked reaction though because it seems abrupt to have the music swell that quickly after the “reveal”

Edit: I don’t know if either of these sounds any better but it’s probably okay how workprint 4 has it

I think the first one feels too vague for the dramatic music, and the second way too vague. I think WP4 is gonna be the way this stands.

New coloring for the film definitely looks better, I just think some scenes have heavy orange skin tones like Ajan Kloss, Kylo’s Quarters, Reylo kiss, Tatooine

Fair enough, it works either way.

I agree that random trooper flying through the air is pretty goofy & goes on for way too long. Reminds me of R2 spilling oil on those super battle droids & setting them on fire.

R2’s physics in ROTS is cartoony to me mostly because it is just so contrary to how we see R2 look and behave in all the rest of SW.

I’d still like to see a version of the scene, with Obi-Wan tossing the comlink at R2 only for it to realistically hit his dome sharply and clatter to the ground. As if someone threw a handheld phone at a metal refrigerator.
