I literally cannot wait for a good Rey Nobody edit. It does sound pretty challenging, scenes like Palp’s “she is not who you think she is” and Rey’s lightning scene are kinda weird without that reveal, and I feel like Kylo’s hangar dialogue might need to be re recorded with a good voice actor, but I think it can work. I trust Hal to make it awesome

Lines like “She is not who you think she is” can be removed or given a new context to not feel weird. Also, lightning doesn’t inherently connect Rey with Palpatine. In fact, Rey used lightning in Trevorrow’s draft of IX, and she wasn’t a Palpatine in his version of the script. Again, it might seem like a Palpatine connection since we know the story leads there, but if you go into a Rey Nobody edit without those preconceptions, then it just would appear as an example of Rey tapping into her inner dark side.

A voice actor definitely won’t be essential, in my opinion. I think deleting and swapping out Kylo lines will be enough to make the Rey Nobody change work. Unless we want to make minor changes, like poppa and Hal having Kylo say “You were right.”

It’s not me that you need to trust in for the Rey Nobody version.

RogueLeader seems to be the pioneer. I’ll just implement it when it’s ready.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Also, on the eve of an important day, let me sign off with…

“There are more of us.”

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Yeah it’s totally possible. I was kinda into the whole Rey killed her parents thing but idk if anybody has pulled it off in a completely convincing manner. That would be pretty neat to still give Rey some character moments though.

What about DominicCobb? Also, I love the idea of recoloring the Force lighting to its original purple color.

I have never seen the lightning as purple but always as blue. The only time it was actually legit purple was when it was in The Force Unleashed game. Other than that, any view of it being purple is probably just out of context. With the way the SE’s are colored the blue might come out slightly purple, but in context I wouldn’t see it that way.

In looking over my ROTJ Custom SE which was sourced from the 19SE and Labyrinth of Evil which was sourced from the HDTV transfer, it does seem pretty consistently blue.

When I imagine the scene in ROTJ, it does seem purplish, so perhaps that was indeed a 1997/2004 peculiarity. As things stand, though, it really doesn’t seem merited to change the color even if I did feel like being a stickler for it.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Its kind of a mixture/hybrid of blue and indigo.

Burbin has completed the English and Spanish language subtitles, with French to come soon.

So, I believe that only leaves DTS audio (incoming from ChainsawAsh) and cover artwork (forthcoming from Movies Remastered). Then I can release V1!

I’m so excited! thanks for everything y’all do.

Still waiting to see if this 2020 story turns out to mirror the ending of Star Wars Episode 9 or 3.

I have a spare bedroom available in Winnipeg, Canada if you need to pull a Yoda and go into exile…

The way I see it, the Palpatines have already won, regardless of who gets elected. If history has taught me anything, it’s that the Empire won’t stop terrorizing and murdering people around the world, even if a new puppet gets to sit on the throne. There is no lesser dark side in this scenario, just two sides of the same coin.

So best case, Episode 6. Nominally defeated, but ready to reemerge.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Looks like 43 minutes or so of fun regardless.

If we’re talking about the “Very Special Edition” in which Jabba the Hutt ends up eating the Emperor, then yes… kind of.

There might be some lines to steal, but the voice cast members who aren’t from the films really stick out sorely.

I’m a very tall dude with a naturally baritone, nasal timbre voice like Driver so I’d be up for auditioning for a “Nobody” edit, and there’s a few YouTubers who do fantastic Adam Driver impressions as well. I do agree that cut-ups of Driver’s performance from the LEGO game and the films should be utilized at all costs though.

+1 on “There are more of us,” Hal, but also +1 for this being an Episode 6 at best.

All that remains before a final V1 release can proceed:

French subtitles (native speaker is reviewing what Burbin produced)
Cover artwork (when Movies Remastered is able to finish assembling it)

That is all! (And nevertellmetheodds has done Dutch subtitles as well. There may be German to follow, but I won’t let it hold up a release.)

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
