Very minor, but I think it would be nice if the Sith Troopers had clone voices from the prequels/Clone Wars, not sure if theres a way to explain it but would be such a simple little thing to include.

Totally down for this. I’d love to convey the Sith Eternal is composed at least partially of “Jango” clones.

I’m split on the Jango Clone thing. After seeing all how they were used and abused in Clone Wars I kind of don’t want to put them through any more suffering lol

I did the same thing with a pretty simple voice grunt and a multiple scream after Jana throughs a grenade later. So it’s not super apparent (Zoom played the movie and no one said or noticed anything, which is fine)

Don’t worry, the originals are all long dead. Each clone only suffered at most the maximum of a single human being. Even less if you factor in their sped up lifespan.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Maybe theres a way to mention that the Sith Troopers are clones.

Anyone else thinking of cutting the Lando scenes on Passana? The scene is very messy pacing wise and it doesn’t really add anything except for some useless exposition. It would be better if the first time we saw him was his surprise appearance after Leia’s death.

Yeah, maybe, but the stronger opening is Poe saying “okay we got 5 minutes” or whatever the says in the cockpit.

Unrelated: without the lightspeed skipping sequence, Finn only has one thing to comment on of Poe’s “shifty stuff,” when he hotwires the speeder on Pasaana. It’d be ideal to remove his line of “yeah well I’ll tell you when you talk about all that shifty stuff you do” but cutting it straight out makes for an unworkably abrupt cut to the next shot. Not the biggest deal to keep the line, but worth mentioning as a slight current issue.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

To move crawl discussion for this project into its own thread, here’s my current draft. Could stand some tweaking yet.

Episode IX
THE RISE OF SKYWALKER
Across the galaxy, the spark of hope lives on. To suffocate a growing uprising, the tyrannical First Order has silenced communication between neighboring systems.

Attempting to unite the disparate rebelling worlds, General Leia Organa dispatches her brave agents across the stars to fan the flame of Resistance.

Meanwhile, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren has traveled to Mustafar in search of a rumored Imperial fleet that would allow him to destroy any threat to his power…

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Nice and short: https://vimeo.com/416400559
While I was at it I removed Rey’s “we’ll see”, I though that was a little out of character.
Also, for this cut to work, all mention of Ochi has to be omitted. He’s just a mysterious Sith skeleton, although Rey could mention him when reading Luke’s notes back on Ajan Kloss.

Maybe instead of “suffocate” you go with “extinguish”. Unless that’s beating the spark motif to death

I don’t dislike it, but surprised there is no direct mention of Rey since she is the protagonist of the whole sequel trilogy…just a thought.

You can suffocate a flame too, so it doesn’t seem like an issue to me.

I really love making it about the fleet rather than Palpatine. Brings me back to Dark Force Rising and goes a long way to make the Dark Empire reveal an actual surprise.

Thinking about the crawl, would it be “too on the nose” about an imperial fleet. Granted, I like this A WHOLE LOT BETTER than the actual crawl, but could the focus be more about Kylo trying to become stronger in the Dark Side or Sith-ness? Something more on the lines of finding the Sith home world or something to increase his power/knowledge.

This kind of mirrors what we first thought (through Han) that Luke went to the “first” Jedi temple/planet to gain knowledge. Instead, here Kylo is wanting to gain knowledge for power by going to the “beginning” of Sith. It may be a better connection with the Sith Wayfinder to lead him to the “Sith homeworld”

It also kinda mirrors Rey’s use of the Jedi text, the ancient Jedi text from the beginning that leads her to her “new” powers and talents.

Just a thought I had.

So both the Emperor AND a giant fleet is more of a “Surprise” reveal for both the audience and Kylo himself.

Both his mentors are gone and he still has much to learn to gain more power, since we know he too wants to be as strong OR stronger than his grand father, Darth Vader, so he needs at least some guidance or learning more things to increase his power.

I’m not sure about that part, a rumored imperial fleet from where and why?

I think that would be better if kylo was investigating a rumored rouge Imperial fleet still loyal to “Snoke”.

Yeah, it’s an attempt to make the fleet Imperial rather than coming out of JJ’s ass.

Dominic made a good point about not talking about Rey, since it does t tell us anything we don’t see immediately.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I really like RogueLeader’s solution, “chasing whispers” so that it could be rumors or voices in his head. Could then easily slot in one of poppa’s “find me” I think.

Ohh, good one.

Here’s an update to the final shot:
https://vimeo.com/414985184
pw: fanedit

I made the falcon bigger, engines stronger, adjusted light speed jump direction, and smoothed the path a bit. There’s also a few other small enhancements, such as light wrapping as the falcon crosses the sun at snooker’s suggestion, and applying the general camera shake of the shot to the ship so it’s better integrated!

I also will be posting a version of snooker’s soon. He rendered out the falcon as a separate element for me to comp in, so we will have options!

Has anyone thought about changing the Rey Skywalker line for the one in the behind the scenes documentary? I feel it sounds better, Daisy delivered the line in a much more solemn way, even shed a tear.

Shouldn’t you be in a computer room at ILM right about now? What are you doing hanging out with us for? 😉

My homeworld is Australia so be wary of timezones!

YES. THIS.

Interested to see the version with snooker’s Falcon element, too, but this is pretty much a winner as far as I’m concerned.
