I would say this might be best. (Might have to skip the “Fortnight” message part altogether.) But, the Pryde Palpatine scene would either become very short, or lost, though. I do like spelling out that the First Order is going there to man the ship, and that scene is the only real way in any version of the film to soundly imply that.

I think the best way to go about this idea is simply and merely to recreate idir’s dialogue using the music-less source and use this to replace the lines “We reviewed the message or whatever, and it confirms the worse: Somehow, Palpatine returned.”

I appreciate the effort, particular from Cinefy. I feel bad turning down a lot of what you submit, but I appreciate it regardless and we’re better off having more ideas at all!

Resistance base extended scene - Alternate Palpatine message idea

Concept: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGYEq59QZzc

Super rough.

Ooohh, that’s an interesting idea. Two thoughts for the moment: Rose’s line, “It’s on every frequency” would need to go, which should be easy since her back is turned. Also, this renders Merry’s line about “dark science, cloning…” weird since he sounds surprised in that moment. He could either be cut off after the word ‘cloning,’ or remove the line.

Or have that short little scene, then they play the message for everyone and go from there.

Even just the existing audio from the music-less version being added to the nighttime Resistance scene would be better than Poe’s intro lines. And harkening back to it as Kylo heads into his meeting hits home that this was a leak rather than an announcement.

I like it! The clip we have to work with has a hologram or radio filter on it, so that may make it less than ideal to modify.

Yeah, that’s the kind of thing! Feels a lot less sudden. 😃

And so the Palptine speech we have without music isn’t actually McDiarmid? Even so that may be the best bet: use it to recreate idir’s dialogue choices and start the scene with it playing to replace Poe’s opening lines. Idir’s version feels much better than the original dialogue.

I don’t mind putting that together but it may be more expedient if anyone wants to do that for me. I will if no one beats me to the punch, whenever that’ll be.

Yeah. Idir, that’s a very nice clip. But I don’t think it works as-is for a theatrical exhibition. Undoubtedly the filmmakers could easily have made something very similar work well. The actual dialogue there is much improved from the raw audio clip.

This change is definitely something that would be nice to address but I haven’t really found or seen anything that pulls it off. 😦
