Personally, my favorite part of the crackly saber would be when Ben wields it. I see it as this: He’s been obsessed with his grandfather for a long time, and as we see in TFA and TLJ, he’s desperate to have the lightsaber too. After his redemption in TROS, he finally gets the saber but it’s imperfect and crackly, just like his saber as Kylo. To me, this represents him finally accepting the light side of the Skywalker legacy, but he can’t ignore the sins of his past. So while he gets to wield the object which represents the light side of the Skywalker legacy (Anakin, Luke, Rey), it’s still crackly to show he can’t ignore what he was and what he has done, but can do his best to atone for his past.

This is why it’s the most important edit to me and I really hope it can be completed 😃

Is the Force ghosts behind Rey scene available without the purple lightsaber in HD? Personally, I like it more but it goes against canon too much for me so I’m planning on removing it.

Of course, if the crackly saber edit gets finished by anyone, and two versions are made (blue Leia saber with crackly Anakin saber and Force ghosts and then alternatively purple Leia saber with crackly Anakin saber and Force ghosts), that would work too.

With all of the comments about the KoR voices, I’ll chime in to say that I like them

The Jedi Force Ghost is the climax of this edit alterations: so epic 😄 Even if I understand the reasons not to include him, I wouldn’t have minded Anakin to be along Leia, Luke and Ben during the last shots.

You’ll be glad to hear that jonh said he’ll do one with Anakin eventually 😄

^ Here’s their last message back in August:

Hey all, I know I’ve been inactive e for a good minute but I wanted to provide an update. I am still working on the crackling saber, progress has been slowed a little, I’ve recently had a cancer diagnosis in someone very close to me, so I’ve been doing some casework. Things have taken a turn for the better recently. I’ve still been chugging along when I can with work in after effects and will post content when it looks good lol
But I am alive and still very much working om this project!

My problem with the sequence isn’t the speeds, but rather the fact that the TIEs can follow the falcon through lightspeed.

I don’t understand the issue with this, it seems perfectly reasonable to me for technology to develop over the course of the timeline. For example, in the PT era, Anakin could only get a metal hand but by the time of the OT era, Luke could get a real-looking prosthetic. So I don’t see why hyperdrives couldn’t be progressed into being small/cheap enough for a TIE fighter.

Is this the final workprint? “Rey Nobody” version has any progress? i’m waiting for that version.

All the work put on this edit is incredible and i appreciate all the effort, but i really can’t enjoy the movie with that twist, that “twist” cheapens the whole trilogy for me and makes the whole Rian vs JJ tug war situation more glaring.

I can’t understand why so many of you have a problem with Rey being a Palpatine. For me, it’s the only possible explanation why she is so powerful. I like the character of Rey, but in Part 7 & 8 it always bothered me, that she was too strong and powerful. But when it became known that she’s a Palpatine, everything made sense to me.

Except it doesn’t explain why she has the knowledge of how to concentrate to use the Force and also how to use specific Force abilities despite never being taught how to use them before. I know, I don’t want to set up an irrelevant flame war, but I’m just pointing something out.

This is what people meant by her being powerful and also untrained.

Honestly, I always figured it’s because her and Kylo are a dyad of the Force, meaning she’ll know how to do wwhatever Kylo knows how to do and vice versa. Therefore, even though they’re two seperate individuals, in the force they are one… as Palpatine put it.

Yeah this is what I think too. Like how in TFA Kylo mind probes Rey and then she does it back, or in TROS when she heals him and then he revives her.

Cool, I think I’ll use that minus the Castle shot since it’s ruins by then (looks great though!).

And while we’re talking about the green mist, Lesser’s version starts when Palpatine steps down rejuvenated but (going from the first discussion about this) I think the most important part to make green is the mist around Palpatine from 0:52-0:57 as that’s when he’s actually performing the ritual/power

I really like this idea. Hopefully the green effect could be shrunk down to the fog immediately surrounding Palpatine’s life-support machine and throne. And some SFX taken from Clone Wars could really sell the effect.

My thoughts exactly.

If you combine the green mist, skenera’s LUT, red Force lightning, and Leia’s purple lightsaber, Anakin’s saber might be the only blue thing remaining from the overly blue original cut lol
