On that topic, if someone does manage to find a good Rey soundalike, would it work to replace “Lightspeed skip” with “Lightspeed ram” to refer to Poe breaking through the ice-wall (for an edit that removes the lightspeeed-skipping sequence)?
Obviously the answer is he constantly shifts back in forth between the two. It’s a Force Ghost glitch.
Wasn’t there concept art for TFA where Ben has a vision of a force ghost that’s constantly switching between Anakin and Vader?
There’s also a shot of the torture chamber where Chewbacca is kept. It might work to have Rey see that when she senses Chewie is still alive.
Edit: speaking of which, does anyone know if “Vehicle Flythroughs” is getting more episodes? Two seems like a weird number to stop at, especially considering the description says it features “Some of the Star Wars films’ most iconic and beloved ships.”
As a side note, I think it’s interesting how it re-wrote the moment from the Kaanan comics a few years back when Caleb witness the clones turn on his master. It’s technically not all that different; it’s mostly just the tone and setting that changed, but I’m glad that they’re not being too uptight about canon. I’d much rather have Filoni tell his story rather than have them force him to recreate a moment from a comic down to every little detail. Plus, I really enjoy watching Filoni’s corner of the EU connect like this, while at the same time you can easily watch The Bad Batch without having seen Rebels.
I just with they hadn’t brought back a 45-year-old man to voice a 14-year-old boy.
A great episode overall, though.
“Star Wars: Biomes” is, as the memes say, a blessing from the lord.
There are some interesting shots from the new D+ original contents with a Resurgent Class Star Destroyer maybe we can use them for fanedits of the sequels?
Wait, what D+ original contents?
I like it too, it just reminds me so much of the Imperial March that I feel like it would work better in ROTS or TESB than in a moment that’s meant to be about Luke.
Leave Rey dead at the end of TROS.
I hate this idea but I’m also morbidly curious to know if anyone’s tried it.
Someone else has probably already done this, but I thought I’d give it a try and the timing ended up working fairly well:
That’s a good idea, thanks
I mean, if you’ve got clips that work better that you can think of, tell me. I’ve honestly had a lot of trouble finding usable footage.
Come to think of it, Rey has always had absurdly good marksmanship. So it can’t hurt to be consistently absurd.
Also, what are you going for with the shot of Aftab Ackbar?
I guess I should explain. I wanted to have more shots of aliens throughout the galaxy reacting to the video, but I couldn’t find very many that were long enough or that had neutral enough backgrounds. Then I remembered that for some reason that shot of Aftab Ackbar during the resistance briefing works really well with optical flow, meaning I could make it as long as I wanted, and because he has a relatively simple head shape I could mask him out and put him somewhere else. Problem is I don’t really know how to add light to the shot in a way that makes it look like he’s watching a bright screen, and the background inadvertently makes it look like he’s in a dungeon. But basically, the idea is that he’s in a random place far away, watching Luke’s sacrifice on a screen slightly above eye level and being inspired to join the resistance, which is when we see him next.
Well, it took 3 hours and still needs a ton of work, but here’s a mockup of what my idea would look like:
This started as more of a rewrite idea, but it’s theoretically possible to do this with editing (and also this thread has way more traffic than the rewrite ideas thread), so I’m posting it here:
One of the main ideas that a lot of fan edits are seeking to expand is the way Luke Skywalker’s sacrifice inspired the galaxy to rise up against the First Order, but that kind of raises the question as to how they know about it. So what if… the First Order broadcast the Battle of Crait? We take footage of Luke getting blasted by a hundred AT-M6’s at once, put some filters on it to make it look like it’s playing on a screen, and then add as many shots as we can of people throughout the galaxy reacting to it. Then, as the dust clears, we see the silhouette of Luke still there, and just as his face becomes visible, the video cuts out and we see the viewers react in shock and awe.
Could Obi-Wan’s line to Yoda be changed from “when you taught me” to “when you found me?”
Palpatine created Jar Jar, to serve as a pawn in his scheme to get elected chancellor, the same way he created Snoke. That’s where the name “Jar Jar” comes from.
I actually like the line “Somehow, Palpatine returned.” Sure, it’s not the most creative, but it feels like what a person would actually say in that situation, and Oscar Isaac’s hopeless delivery really sells it for me.
You say “compact-smelting-furnace” as if that’s any sort of a stretch in this universe.
This might sound crazy, but with how many animated Justice League movies there are, I wonder if it would be possible to cut together an animated conclusion to the Apokolips story…
Hi, can I get a link?
Nah, I checked. Nothing that creative.
Yeah. I would probably remove that whole line, to be honest. Hearing Leia say that someone “seduced (her) son” makes me uncomfortable no matter what pronouns you use or whether you follow it up with “to the dark side.”
I’d be interested, but where would we even find audio of the Sith language? I can’t think of an instance of it being spoken in the movies. I guess KOTOR has a lot of alien voice lines, but I can’t remember any of them that sound like Palpatine.
