The Rise of Skywalker: Revived - A hypothetical edit (WIP)

 (Edited)

Hello everyone!

As Hal is winding down his edit of TROS with the lovely Ascendent I have been thinking about adjustments I would make myself.

THE GOAL:

The goal of this edit would be to keep all of the improvements that HAL and company have made with TROS while also maintaining some of the smaller elements that were cut from his edit. This would essentially create a less drastic version of his edit.

CHANGE LIST:

Essentially, this edit would be identical to TROS:A with the following adjustments.

  1. Restore Palpatine’s cringy Prequel line from the beginning in Exogol and restore his transfer Spirit line to its original position in the film.
  2. Maintain the removal of Lightspeed Skipping but restore the conversation between Rey, Finn, and Poe in its entirety.
  3. Restore the “They fly now” joke. Sure it doesn’t really make sense, but it gets its chuckles and it didn’t bother me much.
  4. Maintain the Sith whispers when Rey pulls out the dagger on Endor (Kef Bir) yet restore the Goonies dagger alignment moment.
  5. Attempt to restore Palpatine’s line “Let your death be the final word in the story of Rebellion.” Or if I’m feeling really up to it take the line from the TV-Spots where he says “the story of Skywalker.”
  6. Restore Babu Fricks appearance at Exegol (It was cute)
  7. Replace the Tie Fighter that Kylo arrives in at Exegol with Vader’s Tie Advanced

I currently do not have the ability to make any edits, yet hopefully, when the new year comes around I will have the means to actually complete this film the way I see it in my head.

#5 was this really cut? I think it’s still in there. Also, was there really a TV spot with that alternate wording?

EDIT: Oh, I was getting mixed up. I was thinking of the line as Palpatine tosses Ben down the pit.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’ll also be making me own edit based off of Hal’s, maybe I’ll do a thread for it too later. Like you I’m mostly just putting some things back in and shuffling a couple things around.

I’ll have to figure out how to match the color correction for the stuff I put back in though :S not sure how to do that lol

This is the TV Spot with the different wording for that line. (Yes I know you had it mixed up with the “As I fell line” but here is the alternate take anyways 😃)

Ah, and that tv spot appears to simply edit in “Skywalker” from the line I was thinking of. Should be able to do it yourself better than pulling in audio from the tv spot itself.

And for color correction. If you apply skenera’s Exegol LUT at 60% for those scenes and the general LUT at about 90% for the rest, it should be pretty close.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

If you happen to restore #5 please do it with “story of Skywalker”. The theatrical line makes it look like Palpatine is more concerned about the rebels than the Jedi, and sounds even more out of place with the addition of the Force ghosts.

Alright, I finally got myself a computer that can edit and FCP. My next big hurdle into the world of fanediting (which I have never done) is how on Earth do I get a copy of TROS with all the audio channels and whatnot intact since my macbook doesn’t have a way to rip blu-rays. Does everyone else have a Blu-ray drive that they rip from, any recommendations?
