Any progress updates? I’m guessing it’s close to release if all that was left was Dr. Dre’s color correction.
Something for you to consider:
At the celebration at the end with the soldiers that replaced the matte where you added in the cameos for you and George there is around 4 rows of soldiers on both sides, but in the next shot with the 3 guys walking down the aisle, there are only 2 rows of soldiers on both sides. A small nitpick that would be cool if you could fix it.
Just to review Hal, how is the structure of the film changed with the added deleted scene of Luke Mourning?
Rey Confronts Luke
Luke Has A Moment
Out of Hyperspace with Leia
Poe and Finn Jacket Scene
Leia Slaps Poe
Luke’s Daily Routine
I’m considering getting the Kessel Run Falcon myself.

“Star Wars Only Version” of the Thread
That’s why it shouldn’t have been a “Solo” movie…
That’s like one of my major issues, Han bounced back and forth from coward to Mr smug dude but never actually developed or changed…
I didn’t mind that because that’s how he was at the start of ANH, his arc is there, not here.
There were groans in my theater during her “equal rights” joke, and there were cheers when L3 died.

Agree on all these exactly what I thought except Han should shoot 1st that scene was a good character builder.
He still should shoot first, I’m saying when Beckett move his hand towards his gun Han shoots then and doesn’t let the conversation go longer.
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
The Force Awakens
The Last Jedi
The Phantom Menace
Revenge of the Sith
Attack of the Clones
First things I noticed:
Remove opening and “unneeded” text
(A long time… straight to the action)
Trim slug lady at the beginning to have less humor
Recut so Han says his name is “Han Solo” not just Han
Trim overly quippy dialogue from Han throughout the film
If possible, remove Chewie subtitles, we never needed them before and we don’t need them to make the scenes work
Keep, but trim down L3 politics… god some of them were “forced” 😉
Trim over-the-top space monster moments
Cut it so as soon as Beckett goes towards his gun Han shoots him
Nah, leave it out. It makes him sound childish.
So I took a shot at removing the latter part of Snoke’s dialogue (“I cannot be betrayed…he kills his true enemy…”), and here’s the result:
The new music is from Torn Apart, which I think is appropriate here because it’s the same track that plays when Kylo kills Han Solo, so it’s kind a mirror. Just an idea I figured I’d share!
I LOVE this

Welp, I lied! I went ahead and did a mockup of that very idea. This would be about what it would sound like if I did it for real, so please vet it accordingly.
Sounds good. I started the music a little earlier in mine because I thought it felt a bit rushed where the music originally started in the scene. Either way, it is still much better than having repeating music back-to-back.
On an unrelated note… if you are including the deleted scene with Finn and Poe at the beginning, I think you should also include the “Finn & Rose Go Where They Belong” deleted scene as they kinda go together. “I don’t belong here” -> “Going where I belong”
I would also recommend cutting the closeup of Snoke and cutting straight to Hux watching Snoke’s body fall out of the chair. If you look at Snoke’s mouth it is mostly open in the closeup but is then more closed in the wide shot, just a small inconsistency.
I had some time today and decided to mock-up the following:
Luke Has A Moment ‘Rescored’ - Take II
- Per MalàStrana’s suggestion on the thread, I used the first part of “Torn Apart” from TFA
- Per jrs81’s suggestion on the thread, the shot of the door is extended
I think it works well. Let me know your thoughts!
Here is my take on the rescoring of the “Luke Has A Moment” deleted scene:
The track I used is from The Force Awakens, “Farewell - The Trip” starting at 1:38 when Luke closes the door and cutting when the Leia scene picks up. It fits PERFECTLY IMO and I think this works extremely well, especially using Han and Leia’s theme to solidify that the focus is on mourning Han.
Maybe for the rescore of the Luke deleted scene it could be the “sadder” music that plays from TFA when the Resistance gets back to the base. To better define it, the music playing when Rey and Leia hug and then it cuts to sad Chewie.
You can definitely sign me up to look at a second workprint when you have it.
Is there an updated crawl?
You could upload it to google drive and share the link. I’d be interested in checking out your edit. Please send me a PM with the info to download when you sort it out!
From the RyanG. thread:
here is my scene where I have created Luke saving Leia. thoughts?"
I think the music is a little over the top but the idea is a good call back to Empire. Thought it could be something you could consider Hal.
I apologize for the comment. It just irritates me so much that they were more concerned with pushing an agenda through Holdo in this movie than keeping Leia in the leadership role throughout the movie.
It’s quite sad that it has been 30 years since these characters were in a movie together and they couldn’t all get one scene together, or have a story where they were actually successful, and that is because Disney is more concerned about pushing them out and pushing an agenda with characters than it is telling a focused, clear and consise story, and anyone who does not like it is a racist or “man-baby” to quote R.J.
The Last Jedi is on course to be the most fanedited Star Wars film because of this. Taking out these agenda-driven moments makes for a better film as you can interpret how you want to. Most people tend to cut Canto Bight which is only there to preach about animal rights and that war suppliers are bad, which is why Hal’s Canto Bight is so much better! These scenes feel very out of place in Star Wars movies. The movies are supposed to be about fun and adventure.
It’s nothing more than a cheap fake out and stupid way to remove Leia from the story so Admiral Gender Studies can take over. It would be much more powerful if Leia took out Snoke’s ship and Luke visited her there instead.
