I do agree, but maybe reduce Finn screaming her name a lot.

That’s exactly what I would do. Have him do the first scream, get pushed back, and then cut after Jana says her line but before his second scream.

Yeah.

Took a stab at implementing the original TROS soundtrack for the opening scene (excuse the crappy sfx)

It needs some work, but not a bad attempt. Although, I have to admit, that fire ring shot seriously gives me a Lord of the Rings vibe.

Yeah definitely needs more work ,it’s really just a proof of concept for swapping out the theatrical track for this, which I think is much better.

I don’t remember who said it, but I think the only way the deleted scene from TLJ is going to work is if we skip the shots of Mustafar’s surface entirely and instead build up the sounds of battle as he’s staring out into space. I think that audio could really help sell the transition.

Perhaps put some quiet SFX of Kylo’s lightsaber, blasters, thuds, etc. that gradually get louder

I think it’d also be best if we remove Finn trying to tell Rey that secret of his, that being his Force abilities. It’s never resolved/answered at all.

Definitely. Finn’s thing should be the mutiny stormtrooper, nothing else. No force, that makes no further sense

Might not be right for Ascendant, but another member is working on a clever way to reuse those scenes for a different context. Maybe they will share it soon! Hopefully it will work.

Not sure what the new context would be. Making it seem that he’s into her seems wrong seeing where their story lines went.

Don’t know why it couldn’t be both.

Eh… I don’t really imagine removing it. It’s… fine. I buy JJ intended that to be gently hinted at in TFA, but TLJ dropped it without a trace. So… this might be a reasonable split of the difference. I’m glad they didn’t have him using telekinetic powers or anything, though. Just… feelings.

It’s not that!

Apparently he originally was going to use the Force to help open that hatch on the Star Destroyer, but that was changed.

You’ll just have to imagine a gif for this one:

Wasn’t that the “JJ Cut” leak, on Saltier Than Crait? I’m pretty sure that leak has been thoroughly debunked.

By the way, what is your plan for the “I never told you” subplot? You’ve been kind of cryptic about it, and I’d like to get a clearer picture of what you’re planning.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian,
TFA (Starlight), TLJ (Fallen Knight), TROS (Resurgence).
May the midichlorians be with you.

If it came from there then I apologize, I thought it was from one of the Paxis leaks.

I think the member that is working on it might want to see if the changes work before they share anything on one of the main threads.

EDIT: I also apologize for being cryptic. A few weeks ago I felt really pessimistic about fixing the problems I had with the film, but after rewatching the movie and sharing some ideas and tests with different members, I feel a lot more confident that fixing some of the major issues with the movie is actually doable. I know I talk a lot about ideas I have on here, but just speaking for myself, I think it might be fun if I wait until I have something to show for them! I’d rather give y’all pleasant surprises than false expectations.

I’m tempted to get excited about actually seeing something substantially helpful for this movie. (Not just that idea but in general.)

It’s kinda like what Pearce said on your TFA thread. “Think smarter, not harder”.

After I first saw the movie, I felt like radical edits we’re necessary in order to make some of the changes I felt this film needed. I was even suggesting filming new scenes. But after looking through the film, and seeing what others have accomplished just with quick and dirty edits, I realized a lot of the changes I wanted to see we’re actually more tangible than I thought.

Not really needed, but I think it’d be cool to change 3PO’s interaction with the troopers. (“That’s not even a language!”) He should just haplessly be trying to find protocol to attend to, not necessarily aware that the troopers are hostile.

Is it possible isolate the dialogue from any the Clone Wars episodes? There is this scene from The Clone Wars where 3PO is trying to bargain for some fruit. You could dialogue like:

“Excuse me, fine sir, but do you by any chance have Chewie?”

“How much would Chewie cost?”

“May I please purchase Chewie?”

“Very well, 32, but not one credit more!”

I also wonder if he should be so eager to be in a laser battle? He’s not programmed for battle, so it might make more sense for him to be a little uncomfortable with the action.

lol, 3PO just asking “do you have any Chewie?”
