There is one other hope out there. What if the deleted scenes are released with the expensive Skywalker Saga box set or possibly in the coming months with a Special Release on Blu-ray? We can be hopeful.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000 edits), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian.
May the midichlorians be with you.

Nah. I actually like the quick Mustafar opening. (I mean, if it has to be quick.) He kills people to get a thing, and we understand it’s to lead him to his next destination. Starting directly with Exegol would only make it more rushed.

I won’t be starting with Mustafar or Exegol. Both beginnings suck.

I would like to apologize for the following.

(OT.com): “We held out to the end.
But the fan editing community has lost all its hope. TROS will have no deleted scenes and is frenetically paced. The spark is out.

A nerdy silhouette lumbers in

“Hal.”

“I know what you’re going to say. We changed our avatars.”

(Hal9000): “They’re nice that way… OT.com, I’m sorry.”

“I know. I know you are. I’m just glad you’re here, at the end.”

“I came to face TROS. And I can’t save it.”

“I held out hope for so long, but I know a satisfying conclusion is gone.”

“No story is ever really concluded.”

Hands OT.com a bottle of hard apple cider

(FE.org): Hal9000.

Hal winks

Walks out onto the salty tears of disgruntled fans.

(TROS): Stop! I want every abrupt scene transition we have to optical wipe at that man.

Scenes fly by at a breakneck speed, nearly as fast as within the movie itself

(Disney): That’s enough! Do you think you got him? A puny fan editor is nothing, our goal is to punish the fan base within that mine.

… blah blah blah …

(Hal9000): Every word of what you just said was wrong. Star Wars fan edits are reborn today. The collective metaproject is just beginning. And I will not be the last SW fan editor.

Time it is. For you to look past a collection of cut scenes. Seen them have you? Fast pacing, they were not. Yes, yes, yes. Better pacing they contained, but that archive contained nothing that the fan editor, Hal, does not already possess.

Lost The Rise of Skywalker’s deleted scenes we did. Lose Ascendent, you must not.

Incidentally, I just installed my first SSD into my MacBook Pro. Restored from my backup, and started her up.

Oh my God, it’s like a brand new computer! This will be dramatically less frustrating to edit with.

Apparently $30 is how long I have to hold out to adopt a new technology.

I chucked the (not very reliable) optical drive and kept my 1TB HDD.

SSD’s are, in fact, a game changer. Finally put one in my laptop back in November when Black Friday sales dropped a decent-quality 2TB SanDisk to below $200.

Can’t wait until the prices are closer to parity with HDD’s on a per-GB basis so I can replace my large-capacity media library drives, too.

As disappointing as the news is to hear that the first home video release will not feature deleted scenes, there’s also the possibility that they could be released in a future Blu-ray. The Force Awakens had more bonus features and deleted scenes included in the 3D Blu-ray released in November 2016 compared to its standard Blu-ray in April that same year.

Also, the more I’ve thought about it, I think there is a way to make a good edit of The Rise of Skywalker, with or without deleted scenes. All it would take would be to cleverly use other material, including stuff from fans, as well as restructuring and shuffling some of the scenes.

I actually really like the breakneck pace, so I think I’ll do fine without deleted scenes, but it’s still really disappointing they have them.

So Hal, do you have a prepared cut list for this edit as of late?

This might be ambitious and may not be something to do, but would you consider asking help from someone very talented and experienced with DeepFakes to fix Leia in the flashback scene. She looks too much like her character model in Battlefront II in there.

That’s Carrie Fisher’s actual face from Jedi, not CGI. I don’t know how an amateur could make it look better using deepfake technology.

It didn’t look like they merged archived material for that scene. If that’s true, could you tell me which scene from Return of the Jedi they pulled her face from? Was it when she was struggling to tell Han that her and Luke were related?

I remember thinking in the theater that it literally looked cut and pasted from the Endor balcony scene, either when Luke tells Leia about Vader, or when Han asks her what’s wrong.

Yes that’s it.
