  • Different crawl text
  • Leia stays dead

Changes/Additions:

  • New Crawl Text explaining Luke’s absence from most of the movie and making Poe the new General
  • Mask repair scene moved to beginning with Emperor’s broadcast (and new music)
  • While training in the beginning of the movie, Rey has only visions related to her
  • Kylo’s dialogue in the briefing room changes from mentioning a treacherous spy among them to an unknown traitor sending a message to the resistance
  • C3PO’s dialogue in the cave changes. The dagger inscription show’s not the way to the Wayfinder but is a clue Luke was looking for
  • Rey communicates with the serpant through the force, remembering Luke’s first lesson in TLJ
  • The light coming from outside the cave has a warmer color
  • Kylo’s ship is not destroyed by Rey in the desert. It’s parked in the background as he approaches her.
  • Poe leads our heroes to Babu Frik instead of Zorri
  • Added “Dark Rey” flashback as Kylo is telling Rey that she has the same powers as the Emperor
  • Instead of fighting “Dark Rey”, the scene plays out creepier. Dark Rey just talks to her and moves to strike and Rey, startled by the encounter, moves back and falls to the ground
  • Kylo’s line to Rey on the Death Star changes from “You wanted to prove to Leia that you’re a Jedi but you’re something else” to “You wanted to prove that you’re a Jedi…”
  • Instead of Leia calling out to Kylo, he is distracted by Luke, who apologizes for failing him
  • Luke is shocked when Rey stabs Kylo. After stabbing him, she remembers how Luke warned her (in TLJ) that saving Ben will not go as she thinks. She leaves Kylo to his fate, running away in tears.
  • Moved scene where the Emperor talks to General Pryde before Kylo’s scene with Han
  • Kylo is redeemed and becomes one with the force after his father asks him to come home
  • Luke is not a force ghost anymore ^^
  • Luke does not appear to Rey from out of the fire but comes down the steps. He stares at Rey, still a bit shocked from what she did. When Rey sees him, she looks down in shame.
  • Different color for Leia’s lightsaber when we see her train with Luke
  • Rey is not holding the other Wayfinder in her hand while she watches Luke raise his X-Wing. Instead we can assume, that either he told her how to get to Exagol or the location is saved in the ship’s system
  • Instead of calling Rey “Empress Palpatine”, the Emperor just calls her “Empress” daring her to come to the dark side
  • The Emperor’s line changes from “She will strike me down and pledge herself as a Sith” to just “She will pledge herself as a Sith”
  • Inserted memories of the dead (Han, Leia, Kylo) from TFA and TLJ  while Rey is thinking of what to do
  • Added a line for Rey that she refuses to take part in the ritual
  • Added shot of Lando saying “Come on Chewie” right after we see the Falcon arrive at Exagol, instead of him just laughing
  • Instead of saying “Zorri, you made it” Poe just says “you made it” referring to Babu Frik
  • Different color for Leia’s lightsaber when Rey uses both sabers against the Emperor
  • Added scene where after Rey defeats the Emperor, she senses Luke becoming one with the force (re-purposed ending from TLJ ACC).
  • Leia’s body disappears after Luke becomes on with the force. Their bond was so strong that she couldn’t “leave” without him.
  • Rey’s lightsaber staff has a different color

  • Maz Kanata’s silly phone call
  • Finn’s side quest on Canto Bight (and the whole Code-breaker nonsense)
  • Rose’s introduction
  • Rey nearly killing the island nuns with a rock
  • Luke falling down after Rey hits him on the head from behind.
  • NEW Luke hitting Rey after she attacks him
  • Captain Phasma
  • BB8 going on a killing spree
  • NEW Rose and Finn returning to Crait while being shot at by Tie Fighters
  • NEW Rebels setting up their base on Crait
  • NEW Weird old rebel guy walking onto the battlefield with some binoculars
  • NEW Gareth Edwards Cameo and rebel soldier putting salt in his mouth
  • NEW Rey shooting down three Tie Fighters at once on Crait
  • Finn trying to sacrifice himself in the battle on Crait and Rose “saving” him
  • Rose kissing Finn while the Rebel Base is being blown up in the background
  • NEW General Hux being thrown around by Kylo in front of his crew
  • Luke dying
  • NEW The names of the actors playing Maz Canata, Captain Phasma, Rose, and DJ where removed from beginning of the credits

Added:

  • Deleted scene where Luke is mourning Han
  • Deleted scene where the island natives are introduced
  • Deleted scene where Poe explains to Finn what happened while he was in a coma
  • Deleted scene showing Luke’s third lesson to Rey (involving the island natives)
  • Two aerial shots from a documentary of Skellige island (Ahch-To island) that serve as transitions between scenes
  • Some classic Star Wars scene transitions here and there
  • NEW New background music in some scenes and scene transitions (only using TLJ and TFA OST)
  • NEW There can be no Star Wars without a Wilhelm Scream somewhere in the movie 😉

Changed:

  • The intro crawl text changed slightly to include that Snoke has been training “his apprentice Kylo Ren” and that the rebels are certain that “young Rey will find Luke Skywalker and with his help restore a spark of hope to the fight”.
  • The first battle against the Dreadnought is much more fluid and intense now and not broken up by silly jokes
  • Moved the scene where Leia tells C3PO to “whipe that nervous expression off his face” to right after the Dreadnought cannons move to point on the rebel cruiser making it a better fit
  • NEW Although General Hux is still not the most intimidating bad guy, at least now he is spared the humiliation by his superiors in front of his fellow officers, restoring some of his dignity and the appearance of him being a respected General.
  • NEW The first time we see Luke and Rey, he is already holding the light saber in his hands, showing us that at least some time has gone by since the ending of TFA.
  • Instead of throwing away the light saber, Luke gives it back to Rey and tells her that he’s sorry before walking off, making her confused expression right after, more believable.
  • Leia dies in the second assault of the First Order
  • Luke has a vision of Leia floating in space after he reconnects with the force
  • NEW Teleportation of matter like water via force call is not possible anymore (shown when Kylo wipes his face to reveal that water from Ahch-To island was transported to him). Now it looks like he’s wiping away some sweat after his intense conversation with Rey.
  • NEW Luke now seems more skilled in the fight with Rey. He doesn’t fall down, after she hits him on the head the first time but immediately turns around to stop her second strike at which point he has a force vision of Rey tempted by the dark side and hears Master Yoda’s warning voice telling him not to attack her. This results in him just dodging her hits and staying on the defensive. The one time he falls down now, he breaks his fall with the force, showing us that he could have easily beaten her if he wanted to. This changed scene now also implies that if he had attacked her, he would have probably driven her away even more causing her to join Kylo later when he offers Rey to come to his side. Her refusal to do so has more meaning now.
  • When Poe asks Admiral Holdo, if she has a plan, it now seems like she gives in an is going to tell him what the mission is. When they leave her alone on the cruiser and Poe leaves with the transport ships, it looks like they are working together.
  • NEW To showcase that they are indeed working together there is a montage with a voice-over explaining the escape plan to Crait to Poe and the audience.
  • The reveal that Rose is Paige’s sister comes much later in the last act on Crait when she touches the second half of the medallion as she is flying towards the large cannon, creating a better connection/contrast to the beginning of the movie. Her sister died in battle, she survives.
  • NEW Now the Millennium Falcon enters the battle on Crait gracefully and with style. The first thing we see is it’s shadow and not an exaggerated triple kill shot
  • When Poe tells Finn to pull back, it now looks like he is following his order
  • Luke makes his last stand with a green light saber instead of the blue one making the reveal, that he is not really there, more surprising.
  • The movie ends with Luke surviving and looking out at the sunset, coming full circle. He looked at it as a baby in “Revenge of the Sith”, as a young man in “A New Hope” and finally as an old Jedi Master.
  • NEW When Luke stares at the sunset for the first time there was a small black dot that was removed to avoid the misconception that he is staring at something small in front of the sun
  • Color grading of the whole movie (greenish/yellow tint removed and more color vibrance)

Final Running Time: 108 minutes

Same here - a shame as there are some intriguing things you have listed in your Change List - though that mocking of Rian Johnson didn’t help in your trailer, either. Feel free to disagree with him, state why, and make as much of an Edit you’d have preferred it to be with whatever footage there is etc - yet this repeated ‘no… no… no…’ mimic thing… it’s a ‘no…’ for me.

That said, there’ll no doubt be people who will like it. An you’ve obviously put some time and energy into it, whilst making some bold decisions - good luck.
 

Thanks for the comment oojason! Rian Johnson is the reason, why I decided to make my first fan edit so yeah you can say that I strongly disagree with a lot of his decisions not only regarding STAR WARS but movie making in general, which is a shame because I liked his work on Breaking Bad.

Of course I realize my decisions for this fanedit are not gonna please everybody but nevertheless I stand by them 😉

STAR WARS: Last Jedi (The Anti-Cringe-Cut)

This movie was a mess! It managed to subvert fan expectations in the worst way. With it’s pointless twists and turns, unnecessary side plots, some ridiculous character moments and cringe-worthy dialogue it quickly buried my faith in the new STAR WARS franchise. But Episode 8 was not all bad so a spark of hope remained… Maybe with some cuts here and there, it could be possible to redeem this movie. So I did exactly that!
