The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)

Please feel free to give me your feedback, I personally think that the beginning needs improvement.

Hmmm… Almost seems a little too subtle and the crackles seem too linear and not random enough.

In terms of tracking the movement across the blade, absolutely perfect!

I remember a while ago the majority of us agreed upon Rey’s lightsaber being as noticeably crackly as possible, without taking it too far.

Regardless, keep up the good work! I’m so thrilled that someone has finally undertaken this huge task! 😃

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - ** PRODUCTION HAS NOW RESTARTED **
Time

Telion said:

Hopefully, but its so ambiguous rn I was just wondering.

If you do some digging, Adywan is quite explicit about his plans regarding Boba’s fate:

adywan said:

A real bugbear of mine is the resurrection of dead characters( Boba surviving the Sarlaac, Maul surviving being cut in half, the Emperor returning as a damn clone etc). It cheapens their death if you just bring them back just because they are a popular character. Bringing a character back as a force ghost is a different matter entirely though as this isn’t really bringing them back to life. Boba was nothing more than a throw away character that the fans inflated his importance. I really don’t care what the EU has said or done as i have stated many times, the EU does not exist in relation to the Revisited Saga. Boba is going to die and there will be no doubt that he is dead in ROTJ:R. How this is going to happen? Well, that hasn’t been fully decided just yet.

Obviously in light of recent events in the Star Wars universe this creates real complications. I, like many others I’m sure are seriously hoping for a reevaluation of these plans. (Without any pressuring of course, these are his fan-edits) Hopefully the discussion about it in this thread will bring it to his attention so that the confusion can be addressed and some clarity can be brought.

Unusual <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread

  1. The establishing shot of the planet could be altered to where there is a thin asteroid belt around it (sort of like D’Qar), and add lava inside the large canyon that runs across the planet surface (to imply that’s where the crust was cracked open by the Death Star).

I love the idea of turning Pasaana into Jedha, I hope someone can eventually turn the opening establishing shot into something like this mockup I did:

The ‘Custom Special Edition’ That Almost Wasn’t, But Then Was (Released)

While on the subject, let me ask: would anyone like to remove Yavin IV from the SE shot of the rebel force heading to the Death Star?

Seeing as to how much that issue has been discussed lately since doubleofive brought it up, I’m willing to bet Adywan is gonna want to tackle it in ANH Revisited eventually.

Raiders is best. Temple is weakened by ethnocentric BS and making it a prequel (yeah, totally doesn’t feel/work like one). Crusade is good, though the reuse of Nazis and another Judeo-Christian McGuffin is disappointing. Kingdom is a fever dream I dimly recall.

My thoughts exactly.

Richard Marquand's effect on Return of the Jedi
Time

SparkySywer said:

Marquand as a director is a lot like Gareth Edwards. Good with action and special effects, lackluster on characters. Return of the Jedi has that aspect to it that I don’t think would have been there without him.

I actually believe the situation is quite the opposite. If I recall correctly, the ‘Empire of Dreams’ documentary makes a point in saying that Marquand was particularly bothered when having to shoot things that required mostly post-production work to fill in the gaps. He found it difficult to imagine the sets and locations with all the effects added. Also, I remember the actors and other crew being interviewed and saying that he liked to focus on character driven drama and dialogue, as he had a background in acting himself. I’m probably wrong, but this is what I remember taking away when I watched it. I never really knew too much about him beforehand. 😕

Here’s an idea: replace Scabior with Barty Crouch Jr… Just deepfake David Tennant’s face over Nick Moran’s and voila! Doesn’t change much, I know, but it could help tie the films together.

You overestimate current deepfake technology.
Not to mention that the two characters are vastly different in terms of the roles they play and their rankings amongst the death eaters. They also sound nothing alike.

WXM,

Thanks for your reply!
I’m glad to see someone with such a keen eye take interest! 👍

The small jump cuts are actually something that are intentionally added when the effect is used in the other films, I wanted my shots to feel authentic, so I attempted (quite poorly I might add) to recreate them. But I completely agree about the second shot, the changes to Harry are still too noticeable so I will try to address it! 😃 Thanks so much for the input!

Hey, yeah… It’s me!

So I was always bothered by the lack of consistency with the apparition effects across films. By that I mean between when Dobby apparates in Year 2 and when everybody else does from Year 6 onwards. So I attempted to replaces the ‘fairy dust’ effect with the new style of apparition:

(If I make any changes I’ll let everybody know!)
