Whoo, the dreaded commentary track has been recorded. lol

There was so much in this edit to comment on, and I know so many moments went by without mention. My thoughts weren’t always coherent and I didn’t have as much to say about the movie and story itself as with past installments.

Thank you all so much for coming out of nowhere to produce a jawdropping fan edit. This was the fan edit that almost wasn’t, making it all the more impressive to have done so much with it. It’s been a privilege to compile and execute. I wish I could gather us together with a rented theater and a round of PTO for everyone to spend nine days watching the whole saga.

You guys are incredible. Thank you for everything. It’s meant more to me than you might think.

Nice to hear that your commentary track is done, The circle is now complete 😉.
Thanks Hal looking forward to listening to it in your final version.

Sounds like a good lineup! 😉

And as far as I’m concerned, The Coaxium Heist with the original opening reinstated rather than a crawl is what I’d like best.

Also worth a mention is Solo - A Star Wars Edit by CarstenJ

Here’s another pass at that scene. I just added some music from earlier in the scene, since sadly that sequence is not featured in the OST. It’s not a great fit, but hopefully this can smooth out the dropoff in music.

😁👌 Perfect sound through my surround system and as mentioned strenghen the tie fx during transition and its done, also agree Maple films done one Hobbit edit to rule them all so no need to go there at all.

I’ve been avoiding watcing any other workprints of Ascendant since the initail one as I’d rather watch the finish product but as Hals stated that this current version 6.1 is pretty much the end result unless the crackling sabre footage and Lukes wig being worked on shows up, this is it. So after watching today I must say, it all just works flawlessly 😉👌.

I really can’t find fault or any major things worth changing at all, and I tried so hard to find things while watching but could only come up with a few small things so well done all involved…
here

Knights of Ren Voices
Imgur

These additions were a billiant idea and add so much more charactor to the Knights of Ren, the only line which seems slightly off was when Rey teleports the sabre to Ben one knights says “what, how?” the what is perfect dropping the how would leave that slight audio pause while Ben shrugs which would work better.

Evil Palpatines End Monologue
Imgur

Simply put he does waffle alot at the end would be nice to just see whats going on for a moment without him explaining what hes doing, specifictly after his lines…
“The life force of your bond, a diad in the force”
then cut the rest of his bad guy monologue and just show him restoring himself and cackling

Dirty Knights
Imgur

This is more of a whats this scene about as I really never did get this can someone explain why Kylo and the knights are dropping all that dirt out of them 🤨.

Anyway quality edit and my go to for ROS, looking forward to Hals commenary track on final release.

Interesting that the concepts show Coruscant somewhat further away, in my head I had been picturing it in close orbit like this:

(Ignore the literal MS paint lol)

Looks great, I did something similar for Jonh a while ago, would be awesome to see something along these lines for the meeting

I think Brewzters concept of Coruscant should be copied as is into the film, although its LUT may be off 😉

Joking aside the nearer concept is a better option for Coruscant.

When the Emperor told Luke “Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!” He wanted Luke to try and murder him. Of course even if Vader hadn’t blocked the strike, Palpatine ran zero risk of being injured. Luke was the equivalent of a pesky fly. A Jedi uses the force for defense only. Vader was protecting the Emperor, no need to retcon ROTJ with this spirit transfer mediocrity. For TROS there is no way around the spirit transfer ritual. It’s an integral part of the plot, so discussion of its removal is moot.

An integral part of being a Star Wars fan is that we can all agree 😉…

But then why does Palpatine seem to gloat as he describes Darth Plagueis not being able to save himself from being killed? Shouldn’t he just be Plagueis?

True, but we never really see the event between Plagueis vs. Sheev Palpatine unfold only what we hear Palpatine retells to Anakin. Its possible to think things went down somewhat diffently to how hes retelling it to Anakin, and that gloating face could well be Plagueis reliving the event in his head of how he ended up posessing Sheev.

What I took out of RoS which I really liked the idea of was how it explained Palpatines “stike me down” lines both in RoS and return of the jedi. I like to think that meant that if Luke struck him down in return of the jedi with anger he would of possessed Luke the same way Rey would of been possessed if she stuck him down in RoS through the sith ritual.

I really like it too, it retcons ROTJ nicely. Instead of seeing it as Vader protecting Palpatine, I now see it as Vader protecting his son

Dam I didn’t even consider that side of it, what a cool thing to consider which shows vaders possible conflictions more so shortly after his “Its… too late for me now son” line.

I interpreted the line “I am all sith” as meaning the past sith which had been possessed in this… unnatural way.

I’m sure theres some overlapping story issues via novels\comic\sticker album somewhere that destroys all that but I personally enjoy this idea of the events.

Don’t, it’s by some Neo-Nazi idiot I know about. I remember his Steven Universe review decayed into a deranged anti-Semitic rant halfway though, so I would probably avoid him.

Yeah, a quick scroll through his previous videos should tell you everything you need to know.

er… okay guys, I only mentioned it as watching it only showcased all issues we all agree were in the theatical version, I personally was only interested what was in the vid itself…

Look, I ain’t in this for your revolution

I don’t mean to sound dismissive, but I don’t think that that awesome trailer music feels right in the context of the movie itself at all.

Oh really 🤔, its a short climbmatic score which is nostalgic and new at the same time and fits the visuals of the demise of evil so well. But each to their own I suppose, it must go into an edit at some point I guess.

For a while, I’ve been trying to think of places in the movie that the incredible music from the final TROS trailer could go in since it wasn’t used in the film. You’ll have to excuse my poor editing skills, but I made a rough mock-up placing it immediately after Palpatine dies. I actually think it fits pretty well + I really wanted to replace the music there with something else since it’s a boring repeat of the overused Force theme again. The only issue I see is I’m not sure where to exactly end it. The music actually “fades” off in a decent area because the epic destruction montage comes to a halt when Rose tells Poe that Finn is still on the ship, but my editing for it is very awkward.

OMG, I love it. This fits perfectly! Please include that in any way
