After WandaVision I really want Phase 1-3 to be re-edited into The Avengers Seasons 1-x. It would make it so much more watchable for me if I don’t have to sit through sometimes really boring movies that focus only on one character. Someone did an edit of Thor, Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man 2 into one that worked really well. Plus, having the stories occue at the same time could also help with “why aren’t the Avengers Assembled to fix this problem” syndrome that every movie has after The Avengers.
Yeah, gonna do that for V3. Thanks for the idea.
I would say, slow the wipe from Ani/Sid to the Temple down if possible, it moves really quickly.
This is such a great idea. Looking forward to more!
It feels very Star Wars, and is a nice callback imo, to Clone Wars’ Mortis arc.
Very intrigued in a number of aspects of this. (Especially Mace goingbto fight Palpatine alone.) Good luck.
Lol, that was.
That does sound weird.
Oh yeah… Instead we could kill her off in the PREVIOUS movie! 😛

I’ve seen an edit that made it work kinda well, where she and Ben both survive and then they share an awkwardly composited hug. The problem is that so much of the movie’s last act requires Leia to be in a coma, and I don’t know how we could communicate her waking up.
What edit was that? I’m curious if I could make it work in my No Palps version…
Yeah, it would require some restructuring, but it could possibly work. Just curious if people have thought about it already.
Anyone put thought into whether it could work to NOT kill of Leia in this movie?
Agree on all fronts.
Personally, that’s one of my favorite things about the Clone Wars and Rebels, is how it shows us the Force is way more than just what the Jedi and Sith say it is/understand it as. Sure the Jedi recongise that it binds all things, but they have no conception of its magnitude. The Mortis arc, the Nightsisters, Yoda’s final arc, the Wolves and WbtW in Rebels - I love how wild and weird it gets.
Because I didn’t touch the credits. And I’m not planning to. Mon Mothma isn’t credited, but appears in this cut, and none of the Clone Wars actors are credited.
This from my version of Ren finding the fleet, which in this version is something Snoke was working on, and is giving to Ren now that he’s Supreme Leader. What you’re seeing is the end of a test Snoke prepared for Ren to determine his worthiness to inherit the Final Order.
It’s not finished, as I haven’t finished all the SFX for the fleet rising.
I’m looking for thoughts on Snoke’s dialogue and the use of the Anthem of Evil track.
Thanks in advance.
Ren is tested on Exogol, part 2
Thanks! I appreciate the work review.
I’ll take a look at it and see if I can’t fix the sync issue. And yeah there were a few more fades-to-black than I would have preferred, that I should be able to fix now.
I appreciate your thoughts:)
Since there is no Palpatine in my edit, Exogol serves only as the staging area for the Final Order fleet, which necessitates pushing the Ren/Rey DSII Duel to the third act, AFTER Leia has gone off to help Ben. Which means that the Duel itself no longer acts as a catalyst for Leia realising she needs to help her son.
So I’m working on constructing a new scene using the “Ren/Palps Force convo” and “Leia reacts to Ben” scenes. But changing it so we’re seeing Ren connecting to Leia through the Force to challenge her. This will be her catalyst for trying to help Rey defeat him.
This is what I’m toying with having him say.
“Mother.” (This will be what gets her attention and causes her to drop her headset)
“I know where she’s going. Your apprentice.”
“I will find her. And turn her to the darkside.”
“You can’t stop me.”
Thanks. It’s always fascinating to me to see the different ways people tackle these films. Like yours is an excellent take on it.
Rey throwing Ren down the Chasm is something I toyed with briefly, before I figured I just couldn’t have Rey go to Exogol at all for it to work. 😃
The fleet chatter is beautiful, and as much as I do appreciate the old Jedi ghosts for what they represent in that sequence, I’m doing a No Palpatine version cus I hate that they used Palpatine instead of some dark side vision where Rey confronts herself. So in my version, no Palps at all, just Rey confronting the fear that she’s going too dark instead of finding real balance between datk and light.

I guess that POS finally just had something really break.
Technically, there’s nothing stopping me from having Poe say this after they crash…
“And then Poe yelled, ‘GOD FUCKING DAMNIT PIECE OF BULLSHIT,’ as he kicked the Falcon’s console, fracturing his ankle.”
God, poor L3…
The Black Robe is one of the things I want to invest time in down the road. I think it’s necessary, personally. Anakin and Luke wear black in their respective finales to represent the pull to the dark they’re feeling. The fact they went with white for RoS instead is baffling.
Also, anyone read the Duel of the Fates script and come away thinking that, aside from losing the connecting threads to TLJ, it felt like it was basically the same as RoS?
Hahaha. Nice one Hal.
I think some of the ideas you have in this edit (namely Rey killing her parents and Kylo blowing up Corellia) are ABSOLUTELY inspired.
Would I be able to get a copy of this?
Honestly, Rey killing her parents is my favorite thing, followed by removing the ghosts from the end. The destruction of Corellia also helps to establish the FO as a threat early on without having to have Palps there from the get go.
There’s a lot about this edit I really like and plan on incorporating in some fashion in my own edit.
Thanks. I’m aware that some of my ideas won’t make for a seamless edit, so that’s why I’ll probably put out more than one edition of each version.
So V1 will have a version without Anakin and one with Anakin. (The later of which may also include some additional Rey & Luke dialogue on Ach-to that I feel is necessary to give that scene some breathing room AND feel like a proper resolution of Rey’s fear arc.)
You could try running ebsynth over Anakin to give him some movement. See if you can get his hair to blow a little to match Leia’s hood.
