Unrelated: One thing I would certainly like to see is the single shot onboard the destroyer that blasts Kijimi altered to depict the crew as First Order. At minimum replace their insignia, but anything else would help. I can’t remember if their hats don’t match what we see of the First Order officers. The helmeted people are unique, and while that can be fine, it’d be even better if their helmets could be replaced with those we see at the start of TLJ worn by those working the main guns targeting the Raddus (the big black helmets that cover their whole head).

While I am all for this idea Hal, it hardly seems possible unless we were to replace the entire shot inside the destroyer with an already existing shot taken from TFA or TLJ.

As you can see here the uniform is entirely unique as well as the stormtroopers who are all Sith troopers:

In my edit the entire concept of a fleet of literally thousands of planet killing superweapons is removed… I’m not 100% sure what kind of approach you will be taking on the matter as I hadn’t seen this mentioned on your cutlist.

Well it doesn’t look like I’m even going to bother changing that part after failing to find a replacement line.

But I thought I might try to tackle this:

Does anyone know what music plays during that scene? I can’t find it ANYWHERE.
It might be nice though to rescore it with something different if we can’t find the track though, so I guess we’ll see…

Not really needed, but I think it’d be cool to change 3PO’s interaction with the troopers. (“That’s not even a language!”) He should just haplessly be trying to find protocol to attend to, not necessarily aware that the troopers are hostile.

Challenge accepted.
I will see if I can manage to tweak C-3PO’s babbling to the troopers.

Okay, so here’s my first contribution to this edit:

As per Hal’s request to me, I have replaced 3PO’s silly “Whoever this Chewie fellow is…” line with a more fresh out of the box thing for him to say:

In this version 3PO says a line taken from one of the cartoon animations:
“And I will be your protocal droid!”

Also, I just realized that Oscar Isaac forgot to take off his necklace during reshoots, and now I can’t unsee it:

Hopefully someone like Poppasketti or Snooker should be able to fix that.

Nope.

Just a question for the sciencey people out there:

Speaking in terms of geography, do any of you reckon that the fallout of the DSII as well as all the debris may have caused a major environmental shift in Endor’s climate, resulting in huge spans of oceans and flooding as a way of explaining why Endor now looks so different in this cut of the film?

If we go down this path, we may need to replace the establishing shot of the planet Kef Bir with a planet more similar with the forest moon. It also may be a good idea to add many more trees to the background of the more ‘grassland’ type shots to minimalise the contrast between the Ewok shot looking just like Endor and the rest of the scenes having no trees and just being grassy plains and huge oceans.

I’m sure poppasketti will be able to pull something like this off! 😉

The video source isn’t great so I’ll definitely redo it when i get my hands on the hd clip.

I’m basically in tears of joy snooker, I love you and the work you do so much! 😄

If I remember correctly though, in this scene, doesn’t the falcon make a crash landing?

Anyway, we will watch your career with great interest. 😉

Great!

Maybe the star destroyer kamikaze from that shot could be reused with a Coruscant matte, if one wanted to keep the ending montage. Then, you would have one PT planet (Coruscant), one OT planet (Bespin), and one ST planet (Jakku).

Hey guys,
I’ve been sitting back observing the discussions here for a while and it’s been a long time since I’ve contributed but after seeing a suggestion made by Snooker, I thought I should share an idea for this edit:

So I heard an idea being tossed around about making the planet ‘Kef Bir’ or whatever where the DSII wreckage is settled become the Forest Moon of Endor…

We could have the shot from the end celebration be used during the falcon’s arrival…

Here’s a very rough mock-up:

What do you guys think about this idea?

It makes little sense anyway for there to be an upsrising against a Star Destroyer on Endor, because who’s flying the ships attacking it?

Option 2
“It’s a resistance shuttle alright, probably here to stir up some trouble officer, could come with a good bounty.”

“It’s them! The resistance agents!”

“Do I get that First Order bounty?”

Gonna replace the word ‘bounty’ with reward.

“It’s a resistance shuttle alright, probably here to stir up some trouble officer, could come with a good reward.”

“It’s them! The resistance agents!”

“Do I get that First Order reward?”

I’m happy for you to PM me the recordings now if this is the choice we’ve made!
You can decide how he should sound, I’m sure you’ll make the right choice.

Two of them, and a droid. The resistance has no business here officer, unless they’re worth a good price.

Option 3
Our casino guests aren’t gonna want these resistance folks here, unless they’re looking to get paid.

Vote now!

Voting is still needed!

Thank you. I’m excited. This is going to be fun. I think the first line is too wordy. I like RL’s idea that he wants the First Order bounty, and they are waiting in jail til they get picked up. Doesn’t the guard mention something like “You’re under arrest for illegal parking”? So, his line will need to be changed too.

Hmmm…
How about:

Option 1

I am an amateur voice actor, and can do a lot of different voices. I’d love to try this.

Awesome, this is just so awesome guys! I never for the life of me thought this idea would actually start taking shape so fast!
I would love to get a voice actor involved! Something I’ve never tried before but have always wanted!
Before we record lines, we need to agree on the lines.

I was thinking:

“Yes officer, carrying the insignia of the resistance. A possible security threat to our guests and their clients in the first order.”

And later:

“It’s them! The resistance agents!”

MasterSolo, I’ll PM you once we’ve decided!

Another option to consider besides a voice actor: Battlefront has a collection of alien voice lines for that species, so you could redub him with alien dialogue and then add appropriate subtitles.

Maybe he could say something like, “I’m confident that is a Resistance ship! I think I saw them head towards the casino!” And maybe as they’re being carried off, we could hear him say offscreen, “Do I get that First Order bounty?”

I guess implying that the First Order has put a bounty on Resistance members. This might actually help explain why Finn and Rose wouldn’t want to park like normal people, hoping their ship wouldn’t be recognized from the beach.

I like that idea!
Only problem is that the police put them in jail and leave them there, without ever alerting the first order.
I’ll upload a clip soon with alien subtitles!

I do like the idea of Luke’s matrix shot being sped up so that’s another vote from me!

I will never stop being impressed by the quality of ideas and work that is put into these edits.
I am a HUGE fan of this edit as well as Hal’s and am looking forward to seeing Sir Ridley’s take on the film.

You guys have inspired me to make my own and in doing so, I desperately need the level of brilliance on threads like this to be shared: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Fixing-The-Last-Jedis-COMEDY-OF-ERRORS/id/72568

I’m looking for new ideas and am seeking a talented voice actor!

Are you going to remove the “Oh no” in the opening Resistance evacuation scene? That line adds nothing and is an example of on-the-nose dialogue.

Yes, that among many, many other things has been deleted. But this thread isn’t the place for these questions, as I said in the description, I am currently working on brainstorming a single edit which is to re-dub the alien who alerts the police. This is the change I am up to at the moment. Making the arrest occur for a different reason will improve the peceived outcome of the film.

It won’t be long before I move on to a thread for a complete re-edit discussion, in the meantime, I am hoping that all of you intelligent people can help me with solving this single problem.

Sorry if I rambled! 😉 I just wanted to keep the conversation on track!
