Here’s a shot of a First Order destroyer explosion from Battlefront: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h-7Rwh1w3X8TPY3v-0ZGiVL8HnKvzaW8/view?usp=sharing

I think shrunk down and with some color correction, blu, and grain, it could blend with the shot from Phantom Menace. I attempted it myself but I’m not going to share because I’m new at effects shots and it looks quite bad.

You need to mark it as shareable. We need to request access to it.

Here’s my inventory of things left unresolved as of now.

  • Need opening crawl from Sir Ridley

  • Need the two vision scenes, desert extension, and “Ben, come home” line from DominicCobb

  • Two shots from poppasketti for the squeaky wheel scene

  • Luke’s ghost with haircut and less blue, from jonh, as well as Ben Solo’s ghost for the end of the movie

  • Once axlanian and krausfadr’s Knights of Ren voiceover is finished, I’ll consider what of it to use

  • Add Naboo to end celebration montage as recently described (no one has been assigned this task)

  • Need Coruscant added to the exterior and/or window of the briefing scene on Ren’s destroyer (no one has been assigned this task)

  • I will try the OST for an alternate musical accompaniment to the added establishing shot of Ach-To

As you can see, there aren’t too terribly many things that remain, at least for the main version. Rey Nobody can then wait until things are fully ready for that as well.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Hey, lurker here!

I was just wondering why do you guys think Ben’s ghost should apear at the end. In my perspective he should have lived, but since he became one with the force I find interesting why they chose not to put him with Luke and Leia. My best guess is that they wanted to leave some doors open, for example, maybe he is part of Rey now? I don’t know… Maybe some dyad thing. Anyway, I personally would prefer him not appearing (actually, I would prefer him alive), but that’s just me.

Going back to my cave now, you guys are amazing!

How about someone offering a shot or two to extend the impact and loss of Ben Solo?

That shot of the Star Destroye exploding from Battlefront 2 could work really well in the background, someone would just have to replace the explosions to one that are more photo realistic.

I mean, this is (as far as we know) the end of the saga. Not really sure why they would need to “leave doors open” in the final film. If they wanted to imply he was part of Rey they should have done more to make that clear imo.

They aren’t part of the Sith Fleet, they’re regular First Order destroyers. Although this seems to be a point of confusion for a lot of people, so maybe something could be done to clear it up?

Wow, this whole time I thought they were Sith destroyers sent out like the one that blew up Kijimi. Thanks for clearing that up!

Just realised Naboo shot during the night were currently planning on using is just hyper realistic concept art so we may not be able to use it as footage.

I wouldn’t mind it if only it had been carefully foreshadowed across the entire trilogy, instead of it being a last resort retcon. That, or Rey being a nobody since TFA, without a needless mystery about her heritage.

We shouldn’t do Naboo instead of Corellia just in case Snooker ever finishes making Ajan Kloss into Naboo.

Also Corellia is cool, better than a video game graphics Gunganville…

It would be nice to have a planet from each grouping of films, who cares if not enough people have seen Solo, it’s not like it would ruin the entire film, it would just look like another city planet. It’s the best thing to add as both a Solo and an EU reference.

At least get whoever makes Naboo to create an alternative for Corellia.

Edit:

We’ve also already seen Naboo used in a celebration montage in the SE of ROTJ.

Yes, but we didn’t actually choose to put that into the movie, did we?

I was cool with it tbh. Like someone said about poetry, Vader sacrificed himself for his family whereas his master murdered his own and it led to his demise at the hands of both of his creations so to speak

Well in that case, if the incredible snooker is doing it, I might just be able to accept it. 😉

Apologies for my tone I was using earlier. I just really thought that Corellia was the way to go…

Both planets would be cool, but Naboo makes more sense for the end of the saga. Thanks, snooker! I think at this point it’d be better to include Naboo there than at the beginning of the movie. Just be sure to have a gungan jumping and yelling in the foreground. (Interesting that the shot is literally concept art. But it’s a legit shot from TPM!)

And I honestly think they didn’t include Ben Solo as a ghost because he isn’t an OT character. Or that they wanted it to just be the twins because it’s their (not really) home and sabers being revisited. But Ben has to be there. The implication otherwise is just too weird. What, he’s in Force hell or something?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Yeah, about the ending : Hal, have you considered removing the shot of Rey in the X-wing at the end of the battle ?

It completely lessens the impact of Ben Solo’s death in my opinion, let alone the fact that it’s just a copy of another shot in the movie with blood added on Rey. It would be more emotional if the first time we saw Rey after the battle is at the Resistance base. Besides, it would give extra-room for the music during the celebration sequence, meaning more planets…

Would be great to somehow extend Ben Solo’s death scene and it’s aftermath.

Another scene that could be extended is the Luke and Leia training scene. There are usable shots from the BTS documentary that could be used. The problem is the camera being visible, I think Snooker had the idea of masking it with a training droid?

Here’s what it the scene would look like if extended
