Not sure if this was already addressed, but why do you want to remove the Order 66 montage?

It has been explicitly stated:

Problem is, you have to take the films on their own, and in that case, the music and the emotion of the whole montage is way out of whack with our investment in these non-characters. Plus, I feel like cutting around to random planets that we’ve never seen before is rather un-Star Wars. Basically, the sequence had to go.

I could probably write an essay with a word count in the thousands as to why I think this is the right change to make for me. Suffice to say, while Star Wars has always been a story with an epic scope, its always been rather grounded and focused in on the main characters and their stories. The Order 66 montage breaks that convention and tries to reach for some (in my opinion unearned) emotion that, in my version of ROTS, I don’t want to have that be a factor at this point in the story.

As requested, Hal:

TROS: Ascendant

The final countdown!

DominicCobb: “Ben, come home”

Jonh: Luke’s haircut

Axlanian: alternate trooper lines during 3PO scene. I really love this btw:

If you wanna be meta funny

3PO: “excuse me, sir"

Trooper: “hey wait"

3PO: “would you be so kind to…”

Trooper: “you’re that droid!”

Bam ya dead

Kewlfish: Anakin’s saber with crackle. (We also never seemed to decide on a sound FX for this I believe?)

And now, the things that have no takers:

  • Add Coruscant to the roundtable scene. (either out the window the whole time, or just in the exterior shot)

  • Vader’s castle in one shot on Mustafar.

I believe there was also discussion about dropping the word ‘THE’ in the title, to rhyme better with the other trilogies… I dunno. 😕

The REY NOBODY cut

In regards to this, here’s a shameless promotion of one of my threads: 😉

I don’t know who the fuck edited this thread to say released. Not cool. ROTS is done but that’s it. The other two aren’t even close.

Sincere apologies for the bump that started the mayhem, DominicCobb. I wasn’t aware it was so far from finished. Though I think most people here asking for links only really assumed they would by getting just ROTS anyway.

Fabulous.
I think it would be awesome if we could have the force ghosts watch as the falcon flies into hyperspace. The cherry on top!

That would require additional footage of them that we don’t have. Whilst it would be cool, I like the idea that force ghosts manifest only in the presence of someone. They wouldn’t be standing there physically if no one was around.

So after multiple trials of adding Vader’s castle to that one shot of Kylo on Mustafar after making the offer to do so, I ultimately came out unsuccessful. “Sad” I had only just purchased After Effects and was too new to the process of camera and point tracking to pull it off convincingly. It also didn’t help that there’s little to no detail in the background of that shot to lock onto so it was pretty stupid of me to begin with to think I could do it. Lol. 😐

So I’m commited to creating something of a fresh interpretation of Jar-Jar, one where rather than him being a clueless idiot, he instead has a good understanding of what’s going on, he’s just misunderstood because of his awkward demeanour. In this edit, similarly to Hal’s COD, they don’t travel to the Gungan city, they go straight from meeting Jar-Jar to Theed. However, to give Jar-Jar more of a role as a navigator, he guides them as they swim there. The new lines are taken from TCW.

Edit:

I’ve noticed multiple issues and things I’m still unhappy with so consider this clip outdated.
