So I’m watching the workprint again and wanted to bring up another scene that could use another look, Hal.
Near the beginning of the film, I noticed that you had to cut out a good chunk of the argument between Rey and Poe upon their arrival back at base. This is because they talk about lightspeed skipping, which has been cut from the fanedit.
The only problem is that this setup is a little awkward because, as a result of this cut, Finn appears out of nowhere standing next to them, and Rey doesn’t even acknowledge him.
So I played with this some just to see if there could be another option. The best I could come up with is simply moving their spoken dialogue around and try to match it with their mouth movements best I could. It’s far from perfect, but they’re arguing loud enough that the casual viewer may not even notice.
Take a look and see what you think:
Again, not perfect, but this might make more logical sense than having Finn apparate. It also just feels a little smoother, I think.
Also, I’m still traveling so the quality isn’t great, but hopefully you get the idea.
