Key word: rumors.

The Resistance doesn’t believe it’s Palpatine at first. Hence why Poe says: “We’ve coded the intel from the spy, and it CONFIRMS the worst: somehow, Palpatine returned.” Implying they didn’t believe it was Palpatine at first.

What thread do you think you’re in? That line’s not even in this edit.

To be fair I didn’t even realize that when I responded. 😅

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Apologies. I didn’t actually watch Ascendant, I just judged based on the movie’s plot and the list of changes.

Try it sometime, I think it’s pretty okay!

Then why are you posting in this thread?! This deal keeps getting worse all the time.

I can send you a link if you want. So can Hal. That way you can actually watch the edit to help improve the suggestions you’re making. Just PM me and I’ll be glad to share!

Hal sent me one a while back. I’ve seen the actual TRoS twice, yet can still understand story decisions (even if some are flawed or don’t really have that sense of finality).

Oh my.

“Because you are a PalpaWalker?”

I’m sure u have good intentions, but might I suggest that You can give even better and more well focused suggestions if u watched it. It’s like the kid who didn’t do their homework and we are talking about the assignment that the kid didn’t read. The contributions just won’t be as fruitful.

U should read the pinned post/top of the thread if u haven’t already where Hal states it’s a constructive and does not seriously alter the story. It’s a conservative edit. That way, u know what the goal and objectives of the edit are, so one can give suggestions/contributions within the scope of the primary goals/objectives

Building on what @sherlockpotter had:

Episode IX
THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Flames of rebellion burn across the galaxy! Inspired by Luke Skywalker’s heroic act, countless worlds have taken a stand in the name of Resistance. As Rey, sole heir to the Jedi, continues her training.

Hoping to quell this growing uprising, the tyrannical First Order has begun silencing any planetary system that supports their enemy.

Meanwhile, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, having sensed a new power rising in the shadows, has traveled to Mustafar, determined to destroy any threats to his rule…

Paragraph 1 - Resistance
Paragraph 2 - First Order
Paragraph 3 - Meanwhile, First Order

I see what the thought is, but this structure is kiiiiinda awkward. And definitely inferior to what it is in v1 either way. Could do some slight tweaking on the specific wording in paragraph 3 in v1 to make it clearer (meh, unnecessary) but other than that, pointless to change from our original, imo.

Save the Sebastian Shaw Ghost! Save the dream…!

what the hell happened in this thread lol

anyway, i think we shouldn’t put too much effort in changing the crawl AGAIN, i think the “silencing” thing is great and enough, the rest worked pretty well in v1 and i higly doubt it would really need any revisions for v2, let’s just be careful not to nitpick too much and let Hal decide what’s the best for the edit.

AND DON’T FEED THE TROLLS

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

Author

Agreed. I think the final paragraph works well, since Kylo is afraid not of Palpatine but of those flames of rebellion.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Oh yeah I am personally 100% in favour of leaving it unchanged. It has a pure Star Wars feel to it.

Other than the stuff you’re waiting on from me who other scenes/changes/audio/VFX shots are you waiting on?

Off the top of my head:

  • Kijimi uprising audio (Axlanian, Chase Adams, and I were working on it)
  • A final edit for “I am a Jedi” (Sade and me, and Cap has been helping us find other usable audio clips)
  • Dagger vision (I don’t believe anyone has started working on the vision itself)
  • Dagger translation (I’m pretty sure some people were working on this)
  • Kijimi graffiti (in progress, but would need to be tracked in)
  • Sith eye replacement at a couple of points (Someone had a mockup on one of these threads, but nothing is finished)
  • Mustafar opening (may be done? May need some more VFX tweaks)
  • The crackle saber/sputtering saber effects (whenever you can get to it!)
  • Death Star lightning shot (Dat_SW_Guy created the effect a while back, but I don’t have an HQ copy yet to work on the audio)

Has everyone here finally decided on what lines you what from Ben Solo? I want to know, as well as the emotional tones of voices each line needs to be said in so I can let Speaking of AI know.

The name’s Lawson. Noah Lawson.

If the AI voice plan doesn’t work or isn’t convincing, I feel like his TLJ line, “You’re not alone” could fit there. Feels like it could be a nice callback, and it would be an appropriate response to what Rey might be feeling internally in that moment. Like, Ben has left her alone, and then he responds through the Force that she’s not alone.

@RL I don’t think Rey would feel alone. The point of her arc is that she overcomes her low self-worth, as such, she wouldn’t feel alone anymore.
