Words cannot express how much I love this edit. I have watched countless edits of TLJ over the years and while I liked a lot of the ideas, the sum of all the parts ultimately were always lacking to me. This is now my definitive edit of TLJ; so much so that I erased all previous edits I have downloaded over the years off my computer. You absolutely crushed it.
The teases of Palaptine, the new music that swells, Luke’s green lightsaber and holy hell…Holdo is not only a likeable hero now, but an integral part of the resistance. So glad the Holdo/Poe subplot has been jettison, Canto Bight (Rose/ Finn’s Love Angle) is no more and Phasma dies in the ruins of Starkiller Base; especially since most of these plots are not touched upon again TROS. You won me over with the caretakers and the third lesson too as they have never been my favorite. My only minor nitpick is Luke’s green saber/ Luke’s blue saber hilt switch back and fourth during his fight with Kylo. Not a huge deal, but it took me a little bit out of the moment as it happens a couple times. Overall in terms of fan edits, 4.5 out of 5. I adore this edit! Thank you and may the force be with you…always!
