I hate to be a pain, but I don’t think it is super convincing just yet.

I think if the ship descended much slower, and if the smoke was more transparnet to the background it would work much better. As a bonus, it would be nice to see some Naboo starfighters flying away from the destroyer, even if it is just some small ships instead of one big ship blowing up with nothing around it.

Are the stormtroopers still going to say “Knights of Ren… Ghouls” or are you planning on making them silent and just look at each other? Seems like half of us thought they were saying “cool”.

I would love for them to be silent and just have that look of unease. We don’t need them to give us story details.

I mocked up the ending with the cockpit shot (music-only) and I think it actually makes the final music track smooth out a lot nicer towards the end!

I also increased the warmth of the cockpit shot to simulate the sun through the windows.

It would be cool to include R2 and maybe D0 behind BB-8 at the end.

And it would be AWESOME to include the ghosts of Luke, Leia and Ben watching them fly off.

Why did Hux’s “I’m the spy.” line get removed in WP V3?

Poe and Finn’s reactions feel kinda jarring without the line. Plus I thought it was kinda funny too. Like it or not Hux is the First Order’s Jar Jar haha

The next new stormtrooper 3po joke is hilarious but the voice line sounds like it was obviously added in. I think the audio there could maybe use a little reworking or maybe a better filter.

I think one thing that makes restructuring the opening feel wrong is that even though we hear “the Falcon still hasn’t reported in,” we see Poe and Finn appearing to just start their mission. The reason it took so long to get back was because Poe screwed up the Falcon with his shenanigans.

That could also be assumed to be they haven’t reported in to say they got to the ice planet or met up with the spy. Either or 🤷‍♂️

Something like this?

I also agree with the slight reordering of the opening scenes to break up the Ajan Kloss material! It improves the pacing greatly by making it feel like time is passing, and flows more naturally from the dialogue.

I’m slowly getting convinced that you aren’t human with how quick you pump out new effects lol. Plus the restructure is something I was a strong advisor for.

Kylo: “Who is she?”
Cuts to Rey scene

Allows time to pass

“Still no word from the Falcon”
Cuts to Falcon scene

Falcon gets message from Bolio and we cut to new establishing shot of Ajan Kloss and Rey reading the texts with “Rey, the Falcon’s back!”

I’ll mock something up later for this. I think I have a good idea for fixing the abruptness of the ending of the ice wall scene
