What do you think of the <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong>? a general discussion thread

Yeah, not a flaw at all. Complaining about Carano’s firing should be a major red flag.

Strongly diasgree. What she said may have been really stupid but it wasn’t dangerous, and I’ve had with this cancel culture.

Also, no, Obi-Wan dying did not advance the plot.

Star Wars - The Purple Planet Saga (a WIP)

Well as it stands I cut the Tatooine scene because I’m cutting to credits on the celebration, due to the music, and it’d be really awkward fitting Tatooine between Exegol and the celebration. So I suppose that would mean just having one shot of Ben on Teth. I might add Tatooine as a mid-credits scene or something, as I don’t really have anything wrong with it. In fact I already have an idea for a rescore for it. Mid-credits is the only way I can think of to make cutting to credits twice work. The alternative is to do like the canon cut does and cut from the celebration to Tatooine. However, Victory Celebration really sounds like it’s meant to lead into the end credits.

Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread

Definitely agree.

As for the classic stormtrooper rebellion idea, I did share a proposal on Discord for how it could be done.

About to be executed, Finn and Poe are arguing about something other than Finn’s secret because that plot thread goes nowhere when they hear a shot. They turn around and see Hux dead, and the one of the stormtroopers says something idk what to confirm they did it and are on their side now. This would require a shot of a dead Hux on the ground and a shot of the stormtroopers. The latter should be relatively easily to create.

Back in the hangar, Rey’s looking for the others. She asks 3PO where they are and he says they haven’t come back. That’s when she sees not Kylo’s ship emerging into the hangar but rather the Millenium Falcon. That single edited shot should do the trick. No dumb lineage reveal to replace.

Maybe the Finn/Jannah conversation can be repurposed but more likely these rebel stormtroopers aren’t seen again until the final battle. There’s only really Kef Bir between their mutiny and then so it shouldn’t be too weird. Maybe insert them into the background in certain shots on Kef Bir. Anyway, they show up again in the final battle with colorful handprints on their helmets, echoing Finn’s bloody helmet in TFA. I got the idea from fanart I saw years ago but unfortunately did not save.

Why do you ask? What scene do you have in mind?

In TLJ’s case you just crop them out whereas I’m not quite sure what the process is for TFA’s. It appears to be long and arduous but it’s been done with at least higher priority scenes like Kylo searching the Falcon. Presumably uses either rotoscoping, AI, or a mix of both. There’s a thread dedicated to the matter.

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

My Apple Music collection has nearly exhausted the storage on my out of support phone and it’s a pain in the behind to delete JUST enough crap to make it go away.

I literally cannot fit all my music on my phone, or at least not without deleting a boatload of other apps that I actually use. It’s not like there’s a ton of them, just base stuff like Photos, Maps, etc… Unfortunately, 7000+ songs take up a lotta space. I might look into YouTube Music’s smart download function. It’s supposed to download 250 songs for me every time I connect to the Internet, but I worry it’ll be as random as My Mix where it’s just songs you sat through at least once, even if you didn’t enjoy them. I want music solely from my playlists.
