The Last Jedi : Fan Edit Ideas

I’ve seen a few attempts to trim down the ‘water pipes’ gag with BB8 during the opening sequence, and tried making one myself, but never saw one that really felt right.

Can anyone recommend anyone’s work on this scene? Perhaps there’s a good one out there I haven’t stumbled into, but you have.

Just use the deleted original opening. Solves the water gag and the General Hugs prank.

My ROTJ fixes & changes
Time

An attempt at Luke using his Jedi powers on the Ewoks, at end of the story scene.
I added some hand ( fingers 😉 ) movement and the Force theme. This also connects to Luke sensing Vader.
This way he senses him while doing mind control on the Ewoks.

It’s a bit fast perhaps, but as always, just trying some ideas.

The matte paintings from the Ewoks movies could be used.
The large planet is there and the style is in line with other mattes on ROTJ.

Changing all Jedi displays to monochrome will improve things immediately. Two colors at best 😃

As for the hand yes, just crop it. There’s button pressing a few seconds later from another angle.
So the viewer would still see how the console is operated 😉

Smithers' Prequel Fanedits
Time

Smithers said:

  • removing kid anakin from the end battle (painting out any glimpses of him running around)

The best option is to edit out the kid stuff (get rid of the “whoops”) and show him activating the autopilot on purpose!
That makes his character much better, and in line with his force abilities.
Also disobeying (by going into battle) explains the reservations to his training by the council.

Smithers said:

  • many scenes with jar jar painted out (all scenes on tatooine and coruscant at least)

For me the only good scenes are the dinner at Anakin’s house and when Amidala asks him for help.

Even without painting him out, just removing his noises helps. As with Anakin, remove all those exclamations and little screams. They are there only to keep very young audiences interested.
You will see that the movie immediately improves just with sound editing.

OK, I hate to be a pain with constant posting of more problems but I’ve just been re-watching the Space Battle of Endor a few times and I’ve come up with a wonderfully unrealistic wish list of fixes.

The effects suffer from bad lighting and color shifts due to the way they were composed.
On top of that you have a terrible BlueRay grading that makes everything flat. Look at the original trailer.
The space scenes are much darker and look immediately better: https://youtu.be/p4vIFhk621Q?t=102

I think that the only thing fixable is grading. 1983 effects are what they are…

I tried turning a still of the Death Star into “3D” using a displacement map to make it look like it was turning slowly and it seems like it could be pretty convincing.

Great stuff 😃 Perhaps even better if you pan it to the left it a bit while rotating.

I think the Maiden disguise is so obvious that it needs no explanation.
Amidala switches places with her maiden frequently for security reasons.
Qui-Gon’s expressions makes it obvious, but he goes with it. So should do the same 😃

So you can cut the reveal to the Gungans. They appear because the Queen asks Jar Jar to bring them. That also gives Jar Jar a reason to be in the movie 😉

I don’t think the Empire is an “equal opportunity” kinda regime…

Second that. The Empire = Nazis (even the uniforms have the same color).
So those guys must all look the same.

You only get some diversity with the First Order 😉

The Death Star has been in orbit for minutes. Maybe they all understood what was going to happen (Bail went back to Alderaan to inform them about the DS), and they are panicking.

Good! So show the Death Star in orbit (Rogue One footage), as an establishing shot before we go to Tarkin and the Princess perhaps. That would give the people time to assemble 😉
