Anybody willing to share a clip of the Palpatine’s hologram call with Pryde up until Lando chats with Poe but WITHOUT Kijimi blowing up in the middle, just as a demonstration of whether or not the scenes flow together?

I don’t think it’s necessary to remove Hux sardonically asking if he should destroy the city. A Star Destroyer is a powerful vessel, and it’s not like they were in a Final Order Destroyer at that point anyway.
And about the line “every one we knock out is a world saved.” First, it’d be very awkward to try to remove since the main SW theme is blaring. But I think it still makes sense, not as a numerical ratio. Those Destroyers with their big guns are gonna go fuck up “all free worlds.” Taking them down in total saves the totality of all worlds. So, to put it poetically, each one destroyed could be said to save a world.
“I see your point, sir”
Hal 9000 said:
Either way, this thread is hardly the place for the discussion, so please find another thread for it.
Secondly, I just thought I should clarify some things I said about removing the Death Star cannons on the Star Destroyers. Upon rewatching some scenes, I picked up on a couple things that are important to note when discussing this.
In the briefing scene on the Resistance base, Rose says something like, “We think hitting the cannons will ignite the main reactors of the ships” or whatever.
This means that the lines, “Hit those underbelly cannons!” and “We gotta hit those cannons now!” CAN STAY. It just implies that the best way to destroy those ships is hitting the big guns.
This means that we still only have the following moments to remove:

Hux saying, “Shall we destroy the city?”
Palpatine telling Pryde to destroy a world they know. (So dumb!)
Scene of Kijimi’s destruction.
The aftermath scene with Poe, Rose and Merry.
Poe saying, “Every one we knock out is a world saved!”
I also love the suggestions Hal makes here, so we should brainstorm more ways to give the impression of an Imperial remnant:
(RIP to the “relics of a bygone era” line!) 😦
Hal 9000 said:
Possibly use Dominic’s rescore of the reveal of the Final Order (although the use of the Imperial March could help sell it as an Imperial remnant stashed away)
Id like to imply that the Final Order fleet is a backup fleet stashed during the days of the Empire and modified to have the big guns. (Removing Kijimi’s destruction can help this be inferred.)
Never in my life have I picked up on that… 😮
Here’s some of my “big” ideas from the TROS end of it, perhaps something works for you?:
Please show this thread some love!
Woah… That looks fantastic!

What’s the source of the dialogue? Sounds familiar but I can’t place it.
It’s from the episode of Droid Tales that JJ used to help write his script. Watch it, trust me…
I’m not sure what “Padme’s very first mission” would be, though.
I know, makes no sense… I planned on having him say, “…very first mission with Master Anakin” but I couldn’t make it work. I thought it would be nice to have some confirmation that 3PO witnessed what would be considered a very interesting event. 😏
Is there even some specific dialogue like “I am going with Mistress Padme to the ___ system” or something to reference TCW?
Haven’t checked, might be.
Hal 9000 said:
It was never changed within the film itself. What that link shows is the bonus extended podrace sequence.
The extended version of the Eopie gives a whole new meaning to the title ‘The Approaching Storm’ if you know what I mean. 😉 Despite not being a reference to TPM.

Nice job! DO you think restoring 3PO’s memory as far back as Padme is a little too much time lost though?
I thought about that, I think you can explain it as ALL of his memories coming back, and his brain pulls that specific one out of the blue and reminisces about it.
I decided I wanted to put my mental C-3PO inventory to some more good use, so I spent a few minutes screwing around with the scene where 3PO gets his memory back.
THIS IS ROUGH, I haven’t done anything with pruning the audio yet, this is just raw lines used:
I really didn’t like the joke about R2 “putting something in his head” as well as the smash cut mid-sentence, so I changed it.
I hope Snooker gets a chance to see my “mistress Rey” line replacement since she was the one who gave me the idea!
Here’s a poser for you all, do any BTS photos of Sebastian Shaw as Anakin exist? There are plenty in the Vader costume and makeup, but I’ve never seen one in the Jedi robes. Were Shaw, Sir Alec, and Yoda shot together or separately?
Edit, found this in Wookiepedia:
George Lucas personally directed Shaw for his appearance in the final scene of the movie, in which he is a Force ghost of Anakin Skywalker dressed in brown and white robes, his prior burns and injuries completely healed. The footage was shot against a blue screen and the characters of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, with whom Anakin exchanges glances and smiles, were added later. Shaw did not know the purpose of the footage and believed it to be publicity, not for the film. When directing the scene, Lucas simply advised the actor, “Look happy, smile.”
Here are some BTS pics I found of the unmasking, couldn’t find any for the ghost scene:
I was just about to send clips as Spectre 7 (Jacen Syndulla) but if Jonh wants those honors I would gladly do something else
We already have a Jacen Syndulla impersonator who provided a voice.
Dammit, I should have known that the line “9000 crew” was you! I’ve heard all your commentary tracks! 😂
If you need someone speaking Spanish or Basque, here I am! it’s a joke hahahahhah 😉
We would love to have you providing voices!
Also, how is Luke’s hair going?
Thanks man!! never actually done any voice over work before but it’s something I’ve thought about in passing. also I’m full kiwi, the aussie probably comes from some friends and clone wars lol
Awesome! Welcome aboard then, always nice to have another brother from the southern hemisphere on here, I do lots of my posting whilst everyone else is asleep, so It’ll be good to have someone of a similar time to me.
I just sent in some of my own lines to Hal so pretty soon the fleet of 9000 will have a new member, in all of his Australian glory!
Let this also be a gentle reminder to all of you who haven’t had a chance to submit yet, Hal is still recruiting! We don’t really need anymore “For Skywalker” lines since we have lots, but we may need more lines like: “Let’s go!” “Right behind you Lando/Poe!” “We are the fire that’ll burn the first order down!” etc… etc…
Sorry for the minor bump, but I’m curious to know if any more progress has been made to the removal of Rey Palpatine? I feel like Hal’s thread should begin to start addressing this elephant in the room. It’s all perfectly fine to continue with more minor audio and VFX changes but this aspect will require some serious brainpower to solve.
After all, Hal is depending on this edit to give him the ideas and motivation he needs to fix it. 😉
Axlanian and Hal, PM sent.
Much appreciated lol
Also, I think this is literally my first post ever, but I’ve been stalking this thread for a while now and everyone’s work is just absolutely fantastic.
Just recognised that you were the one who says “We believe in you Poe!” Your delivery is so perfect with all the lines you sent! Have you done voiceovers before?
Also, I can tell you’re from New Zealand, but do I detect some Aussie in you as well? 😄
Whoa, sorry to pile on, both sound great! This is going to be fantastic!
I just came to say I’ve updated Options A and Option E of the Falcon end shot (pw: fanedit) with a few new tweaks, and I think this is close to end of the road for work on this! I’ll make both links downloadable and post to my Master Clips folder in the next day or two with any final tweaks.
Looks great Poppasketti!
Also, after fiddling around with everybody’s civilian fleet submissions, I came to discover just how awesome your voice is! 😄
NEW POST TO REPLACE MY OLD ONE
So originally I had posted a Streamable link here with my take on the 9000 fleet, but I was unhappy with it and got some new ideas from axlanian.
I’ve tried to make it sound less like a roudy commentary track, I balanced them out a bit more as well, so that everyone isn’t just talking at the same time and to make it more clear what they’re saying. I moved the direct mentions of Poe to later on, and toned down the "For Skywalker"s. I also made someone’s line, “9000 crew” be the first thing you hear. 😃
This one is the same arrangement as the previous one, but with improved surround sound and radio filters that are now unique to each character, instead of being all the same:
Hal 9000 said:
With any luck the scene itself will just have his dialogue in the center channel. Can you send me the raw lines for now? If I get the chance I’ll see how it sounds.
Any idea of a better line for 3PO than, “I think I’m getting the hang of this flying business”?
I’ll look into it. 😉
Hal 9000 said:
Hey, Chase, that’s awesome! I’m partial to “Where is an R2 unit when you need one?”
It doesn’t feel like he needs to have memories to say such a thing, and yet still had irony. The original line was just pointedly saying “I still don’t remember anything durrr.”
Nice. That’s my favourite too.
It has some loud beeping in the background that’s really bugging me so someone will need to take care of that!
Hey guys, just noticed that Hal had recently updated his OP to include this:
Hal 9000 said:
- Find something to replace 3PO’s line “is everyday like this for you people? Madness.” We get it. Not every sentence from you has to remind us you don’t remember.
After recieving lots of positive feedback from Hal and others about my “Chewie person” line from 3PO, I decided to tackle this for him.
I have an extensive knowledge of most of Anthony Daniels’ work as 3PO which makes it a lot easier to source lines from other media. (I watch a lot of the parody LEGO cartoons and other Star Wars things with my friend’s kids!)
Here it is:
I will need major assistance from an audio expert to remove the background noise in these lines if Hal ends up using them!
Literal goosebumps hearing all you amazing people’s voices.
My head cannon is that ESB is accidentally more accurate than the rest of Star Wars, Nolan’s Interstellar-style. Time might pass differently on the surface of different planets versus space?
You’re exactly right. I would go as far to say that it isn’t even accidental.
