Here’s another version of the extra lever shot. I extended Chewie’s grown, which hopefully works, and used a different piece of buffer audio from earlier in the scene that doesn’t have the wind that was causing issues.

Going back to the Poe pulling the lever, this looks great.

That said, Hal, I took your edit and added the sound of the hyperdrive kicking in. The change is subtle but I really think it helps to sell that sequence.

Take a look: https://vimeo.com/455670684/fefe98d1d7

Nice. Could you send just the sound effect?

I like the quick “boot up” sound of the hyperdrive kicking in. It’s the small things that can help.

Do NOT self-destruct!

Maybe it’s just the brown cloak that’s big. And when he’s wearing that, he’s even wider than he already is.

Yeah maybe, I do think his head looks just that much bigger than Marks and Carrie’s but could just be Mr Swolo is a bit too wide with that cloak.

This is the way.

That ending is good but I must agree with others in that theres a bit of a Big Ben issue going on as if hes scale seems to put him in font of Luke and Leia, smaller shoulders and slight narrow head maybe a fix.

For anyone who would like it, here’s the ending scene with no added music. (The video track is compressed, but the audio is not.)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ol5gOj66ASm93SRLx7YrnGfgifSc0y_9/view?usp=sharing

Is there supposed to be a sound effect of the lightsaber being turned off?

Noticed it’s ignited and then suddenly it’s not.

I think time passes, I don’t think she turns it off in the original version either.

The audio isn’t meant for listening, just for laying into a NLE. It’s six separate mono files, so you probably are listening only to the Left channel.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Well, I’ve been focusing solely on the default, Rey Palpatine version of this project. However, while we’re waiting on kewlfish’s crackling saber footage and potentially a few other things, maybe it’d be good to start thinking about the Rey Nobody version.

As requested, Hal:

TROS: Ascendant

The final countdown!

DominicCobb: “Ben, come home”

Jonh: Luke’s haircut

Axlanian: alternate trooper lines during 3PO scene. I really love this btw:

If you wanna be meta funny

3PO: “excuse me, sir"

Trooper: “hey wait"

3PO: “would you be so kind to…”

Trooper: “you’re that droid!”

Bam ya dead

Kewlfish: Anakin’s saber with crackle. (We also never seemed to decide on a sound FX for this I believe?)

And now, the things that have no takers:

  • Add Coruscant to the roundtable scene. (either out the window the whole time, or just in the exterior shot)

  • Vader’s castle in one shot on Mustafar.

I believe there was also discussion about dropping the word ‘THE’ in the title, to rhyme better with the other trilogies… I dunno. 😕

For those who haven’t read that thread, this scene from RogueLeader is great

RogueLeader said:

This version of the hangar scene just has Kylo Ren confirm Rey’s fears about the vision she saw earlier in the film. Rey’s reaction to info she already has might seem a little dramatic, but in my mind, I interpret Rey’s reaction as her starting to feel that her future is fated and inescapable. But a part of her is still in denial, convincing herself that Kylo Ren is lying in order to manipulate her.

Here’s a rough test for their hangar interaction: https://vimeo.com/447063673

And here’s an alternate line read for Kylo near the end of the scene, keeping closer to the original line: https://vimeo.com/447069546

Lol, thanks! I’ll post another clip of the saber audio as it stands.

I don’t really care for “you’re that droid” as a line since it was forty years ago and a different government.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Oh shit…

Did Hal even ask me to do this? I’ve been sitting in an un air-conditioned room for 6 hours and I’m burning up. I legit think I’m having a hallucinating episode again.

No, I did, then I remembered that you already did in that other thread so I edited my post.

I was just wondering, in the current workprint available, are the lines in the 3po and trooper scene from the theatrical cut still or is there a placeholder edit there until someone changes it?

Author

Daisy Ridley just confirmed that even during the development of this movie JJ wasn’t sure if he wanted Rey to be related to Palpatine. Personally, I’m going to go with the Rey Palpatine version but this is definitely yet another reason to make two versions.

Author
Time

Yeah, that’s what prompted me to think about that this morning!

Axlanian is working on tweaking the audio for the 3PO/trooper interaction, but I haven’t heard any line suggestions I like better than what RogueLeader did.

Here’s the sound effect for the crackling saber. No visuals, just sound in this clip: https://vimeo.com/456175362

Please please, if anyone has any more ideas for this interaction, LET ME KNOW and I will test all of them!

Gad: Have you been keeping Rey’s secret from the beginning. Did you know about the parentage?

Ridley: No. At the beginning there was toying with an Obi-Wan connection. There were like different versions and then it really went to that she was no one.

What’s interesting to me is that there could be alternate cuts of TFA were Rey is explicitly Obi Wan’s granddaughter. I remember it being reported in the trades early on when they were shooting the film. There’s also the fact that Han and Leia seem to know who she is,with the information being deliberately hidden from the audiance. “Who’s the girl?”-cut.

Hal, I listened to the clip you submitted for the lightsaber. I like it. It’s not too strong or weak. Not trying to be a Kylo saber 2.0. With the added visual change, it’ll be fabulous.

As for the whole Daisly Ridley interview … not surprised. Boy Disney screwed the pooch on this sequel trilogy.

I feel bad for all the workers on this. Instead of making Star Wars Movies, they were making movies trying to be Star Wars.

Do NOT self-destruct!

I think the movie still feels like having Rey be a Palpatine is integral to her struggle. But it’s obviously a left turn from TLJ.
I’m hoping the Rey Nobody version can be as good as possible, and I’m counting on the creativity of others that I will happily reflect in the product. But, I still think Rey Palpatine is better for this movie in and of itself.

But, hey, I kept Padme alive in Episode 3, so I am known not to totally abide by that thinking. At any rate, both cuts will be completed and made available.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I think you will still have to have her struggle with the Dark Side, similar to Luke’s fears in The Last Jedi.

These struggles and dark nature just aren’t being inherited anymore. They’re natural, just like in human nature how people are tempted with selfish choices and have to strive to be selfless (which are the core attributes that Lucas described the Dark and Light sides).

Another recommendation I’d throw in, that I’m sure people will reject, is having Chewbacca die. Make Rey face consequences for giving into the darkness and hatred.

Too much would need to be cut to effectively have Chewie die, IMHO.

Rey Nobody will work fine, I’m sure of it. There’s just a lot of R&D left, it seems like. I’ll look forward to it, but it’s out of my hands. We’ll hopefully have the regular cut to watch before too terribly long, and there’s no rush to finish the Nobody cut just for speed’s sake.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
