one thing just realized is that Rey’s line to Luke at the end of the first lesson (“I didn’t see you. Nothing from you. You’ve closed yourself off from The Force. Of course you have.”) doesn’t really work in this version since we see him using The Force to save Leia just a few scenes earlier.

Also, if Luke could use The Force all the way from the other side of the galaxy to save Leia, wouldn’t he have also done the same thing for other stuff in Force Awakens? Like stopping Starkiller’s laser from hitting The New Republic? Or preventing Kylo from being able to stab Han?

In any case, that continuity error doesn’t bother me too much since the moment itself of Luke saving Leia is still pretty awesome. The minor inconsistency was just something I noticed, is all.

I actually contemplated this when I was editing - and i justify leaving it in by this: In this cut, Luke IS cut off from the Force and has been for a while now. Leia’s almost being killed was the event that forced (pun intended) him to use the Force again. He had no choice… use the Force or let his sister die… and the Luke we all know from the OT is the Luke we saw in this edit save his sister. HOWEVER, he was still struggling after that scene… the next time we see him after he saves Leia is when he sneaks about the falcon to look around… you can tell there is inner turmoil. He tells R2 nothing can change his mind but it comes off as denial… and then R2 proceeds to show him Leia. This made perfect sense to me. R2 was reminding him what JUST happened and showing him the importance of his connection to the Force. The fact that Rey is unaware Luke saved Leia isn’t so far-fetched - she is strong in the Force but she isn’t Luke. 😃

Anyway, I hope that helps to understand where i was coming from with that.

Ok, I set up a website to host the link for the latest version (currently v10) and cover art. You can PM me for the site address and you can keep up with the version there if you’re interested. It’s a secret site… ssshhhhh lol 😃

Quick note for v10:
It’s very minor but there was an audio issue where I missed a crossfade between Finn picking up Rey’s transmitter and the “Rey sleeping” scene and also I corrected the timing of Luke’s green saber retraction sound effect… it was a split second off in v9. 😃

I was really impressed. It feels like the original and at the same time completely new movie. And it’s a much, muuuuuuch more focused.
“Luke saves Leia” scene is perfect! Now this not only looks dramatic, but also really make sense.
Thanks a lot for this edit! 😃

Thanks for the positive feedback! I agree, i feel like it makes so much sense that Leia almost dying would be the thing that makes Luke reconsider closing himself off from the force. That is a dramatic moment in this cut for sure. I’m glad it felt like a new movie to you (and at the same time, it gives the feeling of the “original”)- that’s exactly what I was going for!

New trailer:

Loving the trailer - very nicely done.

If you were planning on making any additions or changes / edits to the trailer maybe add your blue TLJ logo for it at the end? Or maybe some of your artwork for it instead - the cool poster or the sweet blu ray cover etc?
 

Thanks!! I actually updated the trailer- check it out. I appreciate the feedback!

I think this is the final cut 😃

If I had a quarter for every time you said this… 😉

haha fair enough. In my defense, I’ve really tried to get this as perfect as possible lol

I have a question for the community. Is there somebody who can burn V9 to a Blu-ray disc for me and send it my way ? i’d love to have a copy I can put in a case with the artwork.

I feel like you should reduce the number of versions slightly.
v6 should be v5.5, v7 should be v6, and the current version should be v7.
If you do end up fixing the saber continuity error, that should be v7.5.

At this point, all the versions (files) are labeled already so it would become very confusing to change the version numbers retroactively. When v9 is finished, it will be the definitive Clean-Cut edit, so all these other versions can really go the way of the wind.

v8 (green saber version) will be sent out this afternoon to the people who requested it. I have it at a place where I am really really happy with it. 😃


Not to be overly OCD about it, but is there any demand for a v9 reinstating the scene with Luke disappearing at the end (everything else about this edit will stay the same)? I didn’t like the way the scene felt in the original but now that I really like the way the movie plays out in this edit, I feel like it could work. I’m up in the air about it right now but considering based on feedback.

ok, v8 is coming and there are a few changes - I’m very excited about this version because this is the end for me once it’s actually rendered. With these changes, this cut is pretty much right where I wanted it.

  • Holdo’s intro speech is added back into the cut - this is done for the sake of cohesion because she pops up later and we should know who she is. The speech is literally just her intro - the Poe tension is cut. This scene also let’s us know Leia is ok and recovering, which my cut also needed since we see Leia later in the cut but never SEE her recover - this bit of exposition is enough for me.

  • When Leia is brought back into the ship and drops her binary tracker device, we now see Finn pick it up - which we also needed in this cut.

  • Luke uses his green saber/hilt in the Kylo duel - which needs no explanation. 😃

Here is another dvd cover option:
