For Lando, maybe it’s possible to increase his presence in the film by using his voice in some places (offscreen, over radio etc) from his large body of radio plays and voice acting for games.

Billy Dee Williams voiced Lando in all of the following:

Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back radio adaptation
Dark Empire audio drama
Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
Star Wars Rebels series
Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront I

That way his limited screen time will be made up for a little bit? Thoughts?

Personally, while I have allowed anybody to send in pretty much anything they wanted to record, I prefer to emphasize names and voices that we came up with ourselves. Ideally, it would be a bunch of fan edit enthusiast inserting themselves into the universe directly.

That’s a fantastic idea. Love it! 😃

Is the Ghost in the current set of lines or not?

Jacen Syndulla IS one of the lines. I have mentioned this before.

It was recorded but see Axlanian’s post below about using impressions of existing characters

Okay, finally was able to listen with earphones. I agree, it’s awfully noisy. I truly hate not to include a clip from everyone who submitted something, but maybe it’d be better to actually hear what people are saying… That initial mockup had some chatter and calling in, with some boosted to be audible and others less so, but there wasn’t as much sheer content then. Maybe going back to having fewer clips, selecting those that sound the best and making sure to include the ones from people who have contributed to this project the most regardless.

I think I prefer option A overall, but maybe it’s just because it’s closer to the clip I listened to a bunch to do my initial mockup. I do think that the wookiee roar should be a little earlier, unless intended to represent Chewie himself, since it happens as the Falcon swoops into frame.

I do appreciate you tackling the mixing for this, and hope this isn’t a big setback!

Okay, new test

EDIT: https://vimeo.com/428168141

Moved the wookiee cry forward so it seems more like it’s coming from Chewie, centered the Mon Calimari fleet, lowered the background chatter, and tried to make the “For Skywalker” bit clearer without being shockingly louder than Poe’s dialogue right before it. Let me know what’s still not working, or if anyone has any ideas to improve the mix.

This is fantastic! It sounds so seamless. My only little nitpick, and this is totally a personal thing, is that I’d love to be able to hear Kaz, Yeager, and Jacen and that Zay was a little louder.

I get that. But since we’re trying to improve TRoS, it felt weird to have impressions of specific characters that don’t quite sound like them. If this were an animation or something, I’d bump them all up, but since this is an actual SW film, it feels wrong to have impressions front-and-center. Does that make sense? If we had raw audio of the actual characters, I’d be more than happy to feature those, but since we’re filling this in with fans, I felt this was the right balance.

That being said, this isn’t my project, so if Hal disagrees, I’m happy to change it.

I like the idea about Dark Side noises you put together, though I don’t know if Qui-Gon saying “Anakin” specifically works. What else could go there?

During the time when Ezra visits world between worlds you hear echoes of wisdom from the past and future, for Exegol the world of the Sith I think it could work really well if we heard echoes of pain and suffering. I agree calling out Anakin doesn’t fit, so I’ve removed that and just kept Qui-Gon’s scream, tried adding another.

I really like that idea, but I think It’d fit better over one of the quieter shots when Rey is first entering the temple.

Just to jump back in here, as I’ve been busy of late (also helping jonh with something), but I’d be happy to tackle the double rainbow shot if you send me the assets. I believe it was RogueLeader or jarbear (apologies if wrong!) who posted an early test of it that looked great and just needs to be comped into the shot in motion!

Author
Time

yes … I totally did that … I’ll take the credit …

hahah not me, the no-skill-color-blind-guy is next to useless with fan edits.

(Though I like my Rogue one Edit…though I did very little thanks to RogueLeader and DigiMod did the heavy lifting.)

I’m so glad you’ve put such love and care into this shot. You’ve fixed the disappointing climactic moment of my favorite series, and I’m sure countless others will feel that way when they watch the final cut of this fanedit (not to mention those of us here who have been lucky enough to watch your progress).

Thank you, Jon.

No need to apologize; I’m grateful you have put such care into it. That makes the whole project worthwhile right there.

Just wondering, what’s the source of the new Obi-Wan closeup?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Fantastic work Jonh, the talent that you have shown is legendary!!! That’s Hollywood level work right there.

On another note, here is a first draft of something that I am working on for MoviesRemastered. If anyone plans to use the Battlefront II footage, I know alot of people have said the blue lasers take them out, so I attempted to change the lasers to the same color as the Mustafarians. Still needs work but looks pretty good I think.

Any feedback or glaring issues that y’all see would be helpful 😄

Right back at you! The “there are more us moment” was something that already worked for me in movie but the work you have done with the audio is absolutely incredible. I ama really bad with audio editing so when I see anyone that can do wonders with it, it always amazes me.

And thanks Poppa! I was doing the color correction from memory. I thought it looked atleast pretty similar but I haven’t put the clips back to back with each other to see if it is similar. MoviesRemastered and I were discussing possibly trying to make the actual blaster bolt whiter so that it makes it less monotone. If anyone wants to use this clip (credit to Lillian and MoviesRemastered of course) it is in my drive with the fix.

Thanks jonh. I updated my edit using your latest update along with the alternate Obi-wan shot. Here’s how it looks: https://streamable.com/93o2b9

Just updated the OP. Almost everything without the check mark ✅ next to it involves things needed from other people.

It’s coming together, which is nice to see. And a pretty short time since the BR came out, too.

I hope I’m not forgetting anything or missing any good ideas others may have heard about or had. (“Good” including being a good fit for this project, that’s not to say any idea I didn’t go with isn’t necessarily good.)

One thing I know we tossed around is trying to imply that the Final Order is a stashed fleet from the days of the Empire. In the current cut of the movie, we don’t ever see inside one until the First Order people go to Exegol. One would probably just assume these clearly imperial star destroyers to be leftover from the Empire anyway, so this just doesn’t contradict that assumption. It’s not at all obvious that they’re a different scale, so that doesn’t matter to me. The weird part is the underbelly cannons that aren’t ever commented on. I would imagine assuming they had been modified, enough to “attack” “all free worlds.” Whether you want to imagine that to mean planet destruction or just something like an orbital bombardment is up to you.

We tried a line for Poe that just didn’t fit, but I wonder if anyone has any other ideas. Subtitled alien closeup during the early Resistance meeting scene? Oolab Puba saying “The rumored lost fleet…”?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Hal,

I definitely think subtitles could be our friend in conveying little world building details or fixing glaring omissions that may not be able to be fixed by typical means. Thanks for everything you do here. I cannot wait to see this talented collaboration come to fruition. May the force be with all of you!

This is a fantastic idea!! Subtitles on aliens could solve a lot of problems.
