Stormtrooper: “What are you doing down here?”

C-3PO: “I am a highly-trained Resistance spy.”

Stormtrooper: “Right. And I’m Jabba the Hutt."

That’s a nice reference to Rebels.

Anyways, would we be using that AND a similar comment when Jannah’s crew show up?

Exsqueeze me.

I’ve found some more C-3PO files from the VR game that may also be useful and uploaded to the same link:

One includes an “it appears” fragment, which I incorporated into the other line, so 3PO can now say:
“(You needn’t worry), it appears I am a highly trained resistance spy” - I think it would fit be a great fit for the scene with Jannah.

I think the highly trained spy line would be better for the stormtrooper scene when he is wearing all of chewies gear

That’s a good question, I’d be curious to see multiple iterations on the Jannah scene since I am not too sure myself! On the one hand, it has been noted that 3po shouldn’t really know too much, since he obviously had his memory wiped … but if we use the line in the hanger scene, since it is funny, then the “cat is out of the bag”

Just thinking out loud, but the “good thing” if 3PO does reveal they are Resistance, it does give a reason for Rey to “reveal their intentions” to basically “go for broke” as you will. (revealing information to them since the droid confirmed who they are. Are they good or bad? One way to find out…)

Not sure if this can work for Jannah, but Sherlock was thinking that she say something like “fine/ok” before agreeing to lead Rey and Crew

If anyone ever needs a slight variant of a shot, for example to help disguise a reuse, the 3D version of the film is a potential resource. It’s fake 3D, created entirely from the 2D version, but it’s pretty well done so the left/right images aren’t noticeably artificial.

Now, back to forgetting to do those Sith eyes…

Speaking of which, do you think it’s possible to replace the milky eyes with those in Rey’s vision at the beginning?

Those extracted C3P0 lines are a goldmine. I never even thought the scene needed anything because it just existed but this proposed line change actually makes the scene pop and makes me laugh.

A few test runs for everyone to ponder:

  • “Don’t you know an ally when you see one?”

  • “I am a highly trained Resistance spy”

  • “The Resistance sent us…”

https://streamable.com/qloiwe

  • “I am the top Resistance spy master”

https://streamable.com/8roz1q

  • The Same “The Resistance sent us” line as before, but this time moved to before Rey makes her request:

I’d still love if Jannah could somehow explicitely say “Fine” or “Alright” or something. Jarbear, I appreciate the clip, but I don’t think her tone there quite works in this scene.

Hi Sherlockpotter, just my personal opinion but I think “Don’t you know an ally when you see one?” seems to fit best.

amazing work by the way guys.

I agree, “Don’t you know an ally when you see one” works best of all of these and works really well. Is there a way to extend Jannah’s thinking time between 3PO talking and her making her mind up to help them? Even just a single extra beat there would honestly make this perfect in my opinion.

I agree the “ally” line works best in that clip as it is edited.

Would it work to move the 3PO shot to right after the long shot that had a line removed.

“Are you Resistance?”

“That depends.”

beat

“I am a highly trained Resistance spy.”

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Hi everyone !

It’s been a long time that I follow this thread in the shadow.

First I would like to thank Hal 9000 and all the members for the work that have been done for the other episodes of the saga. I have currently seen all the Hal 9000’s versions of the prequels. And I found the result very good, especially for AOTC when you litteraly improve the love story arc. Also you succeed to give a more cohesive story between the prequels and the originals.

For the sequels I have seen multiple extracts from the current versions of all 3 movies. and apart from the reworked sequences with Snoke in TFA, which I hope will improve in the rendering of modified shots in the future, I really like every changes.

I’m really curious about the V2 of this TROS fanedit !

I’ve watch these work sequences of the arrival on Endor. Is the added word “please” from Rey is the final version for the V2 ? I found it weird When I heard it, although I understand the idea on papier.

Nice work Sherlock! I think the “ally” line works the best out of those tests.

I agree Rey’s “please” sounds unnatural and added in though, same with the added Rey and Finn lines at the end of the other 3PO lines. And even on paper, Rey doesn’t know Jannah & co. can help them so why would she say “please”? I think it works better if she just plainly states their business, showing some trust but also being a bit blunt, then C3-PO helps by remarking they’re “allies” before Jannah decides to offer help.

You’re right, the Threepio remark does make the “please” redundant.

The added words can definitely be removed. I do think if we go for one of the funnier lines, that there should be some sort of exasperated reaction from the others, either audibly or visually, but I’m open to suggestions for that.

I had some slight misgivings about the ally line, just because why would 3PO think they could be trusted if Poe doesn’t trust them? But they’re clearly not stormtroopers…maybe reverse the shot, so that 3PO turns to look at Poe instead and says it to him? (Maybe I’m overthinking it and it would be fine as is…)

And Hal, moving 3PO’s line to earlier, is that kind of like what I did in that last clip there? How do you feel about it?

Based on feedback, here are a few more variations. I tried experimenting with stretching out pauses by reusing (and reversing) a shot of Jannah on the horse-thing. Hopefully it’s not too apparent.

My intention with all of these tests is for everyone to go insane over this.

  • “Don’t You Know an Ally” v2 - Moved 3PO’s line to immediately after the crane shot; added the additional Jannah shot
    https://streamable.com/82rw1u
  • “Highly Trained Resistance Spy” v2 - Moved the line to before Rey’s, but after a new awkward pause, per Hal’s suggestion; added the Jannah shot.
    https://streamable.com/7wp2rm
  • “Don’t You Know An Ally” v3 - 3PO’s line is immediately after the crane shot; moved Horse Guy™ between 3PO’s line and Rey’s line; added the Jannah shot after Rey’s line; split the 3PO shot, putting the second part of it before Jannah agrees to help.

I’d like the timing of when he begins to speak from the first clip, the sound byte of him saying “I am a highly trained resistance spy!”, but with some sort of reaction shot of someone looking at 3PO annoyed perhaps?

Don’t need to stop the scene for way too long and have Iron Man slowly roll his eyes. But there needs to be something to make the joke punch, I think. I fear most people would go “wait, huh? what did he say? That was kinda awkward and fan edity.” And then the movie quickly continues talking about important things before you can fully process the joke, and the sequence is left with a weird feel to it.

Save the Sebastian Shaw Ghost! Save the dream…!

I dislike the highly trained spy, it is just weird.

“Don’t You Know an Ally” v2 is a little better than v3 in my opinion, so I would go with that.
It actually removes the tension from the confrontation in a much more believable way.

For seventeen years the renegade Pfhor scoutship jumped between the closely packed stars of the galactic core. And all over the ship, dancing through the wreckage of the Pfhor computer core, Durandal was laughing…
