Thanks, sgroov90! Too bad I didn’t see your post until I got to this page. lol

Everyone so far should have a PM!

And that’s very nice, Muffy! Actually, that reminds me that at some point cover artwork will be needed. Ideally, in the style of TFA:R and TLJ:L. The others had Kylo Ren and Luke, so I guess Rey would be a natural fit for TROS:A.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

On its way up now. Sending out a few PMs.

Please request PMs here, rather than PMing me, as whomever sees it first who has the link can respond!

I’d be interested

I’d really like to check it out too.

Okay so I expected some might not be on board with my first cover art so I have an altenative, It has Rey on it!.. 😉

Okay and I think as of this post everyone should have a PM.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

downloading it RN to take a look 😄

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

Author

Maybe. I seem to remember, and maybe it was from TLJ artwork, a poster of Rey holding her saber up. That’d tie into the whole “rise” or “ascending” thing.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I was thinking this poster would fit more with the style of the other two, with some editing:

Downloading now and pumped! Thanks to Hal and everyone for their hard work!

I just downloaded the workprint. So excited to see this!

DLing, can’t wait to see the work done so far.

And I’d also like to say right now that I really appreciate you, Hal, for your edits and everyone else who’s contributed to this project for the hard work they’ve done to attempt to fix this film. Star Wars deserves a better ending than that final product and I have all confidence that this edit will improve to a satisfying degree.

I just finished watching though the workprint. A/V-wise, I found no noticeable issues.

Overall:

  • This film NEEDS a color correction to remove the ugly blue overtones.
  • Try to create some more shots of ships approaching/leaving planets in space to help assist the pacing.

Beginning Chase:

  • Get Kauld outta there
  • Smooth out the Falcon breaking through the ice wall, it seems like Chewie’s roar cut out too early

Passana:

  • PLEASE remove “They fly now?!”
  • Remove Finn’s secret for Rey that is never resolved (I personally think it is that he knows she’s a Palpatine. That would explain his “You have no idea what she’s going through… I do and so does Leia” comment on Endor. Maybe if this can be made clearer it would make more sense.
  • Remove Kylo’s TIE exploding, how would he survive that?!
  • I know this was not in the workprint, but I would strongly suggest keeping Rey’s force lightening blue and not yellow
  • If possible, try to create a shot of the heroes escaping Passana on Ochie’s ship. It is very abrupt how the next scene is just them randomly in space somehwere when there was a swarm of TIEs

Kijimi:

  • When Rey tells Finn about her vision, maybe remove the build of the louder music, it might work better as a quiet moment between them
  • Remove D-0’s “Sad.” during C-3P0’s speech, let it be emotional and not humerous
  • Remove mention of Finn’s secret during the almost execution if being removed
  • Remove Kylo saying “You are a Palpatine.” when telling Rey who she is

Endor:

  • Cut out Finn during the fight and have him only watch Rey fly off in Kylo’s TIE

Anch-To:

  • Try to tone down how blue Luke looks and use Jonh’s hair fix
  • Remove Rey’s “Two were made.” line as we know this and we don’t need extra exposition… sigh

Ending:

  • Add Ben’s ghost

The Skywalker Saga Viewing Order:
I: C.O.D. | II: T.A.S. | III: L.O.E. AE
IV: Revisited | V: Revisited | VI: Revisited
VII: Restructured | VIII: Rekindled | IX: Ascendant

This is the way.

Klaud Squad here:

Idk if Klaud was supposed to be removed completely or not, but he’s still in one shot during the beginning Falcon chase, falling over with his classic Awed-Klaud™ face

There will be color correction, but I didn’t do it for the workprint as it would have held it up and been a pain in the ass.

I would adore any good new shots of ships heading toward planets, lol.

Chewie’s roar as they head to the ice wall hasn’t been touched; it was like that.

I can try to remove “they fly now,” lol.

I don’t know about Finn. There will be some residual Force-implication for him regardless, so I’m inclined to leave his “secret” as is. Maybe something to chew on after leaving the theater.

I don’t plan to remove Kylo’s exploding TIE. I’d have to gut the whole sequence, and that won’t help the film’s pacing. These Force users just sort of routinely defy reality.

I like the yellow lightning, but I would probably only use it for a ‘Rey Nobody’ version to distance from Palpatine. But I’m open to feedback and it seems like more people feel weird than good about it.

That’s a good point about the heroes leaving Pasaana. If that ship can be seen leaving the planet and maybe entering hyperspace, that’d be cool.

Nice idea, i’ll play with quieting the music as Rey tells Finn about her vision.

I’m not going to remove DO’s “sad” or “happy.” 😦 😃

I worry that if I remove the line “You are a Palpatine,” it might not be clear. He’s speaking through the helmet and can be hard to hear. I like the dialogue on paper better without the line, though.

The line “two were made” harkens back to Lando stating as much earlier in the movie. It doesn’t bother me, but I’m sure it could be removed easily if it bothers most people.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’d like him to be removed. There’s a couple shots that would need FX. The shot of him falling over can just be edited out easily. Here’s the footage I’d need: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1u0x-OMfTBZ0dpnVflTzKSRjsxOp9uU6l/view?usp=sharing
