The added “Moff Gideon” line given to Bo Katan still sounds rough. Can you pitch shift it down a few percent?
I haven’t seen the edit yet, but i agree with Delpheas about the destruction of the New Republic, and how it leads to nothing. It’s better cut.

I’ve finished 4 pieces of animated concept art for the Domino Squad arc!
Those waves were sick! Amazing
I think I just reacted to the fact that the word inspection is used both by the station commander “…squared away for inspection” and Obi-Wan speaking to Cody “How goes the inspection?”, and Cody speaking to the battle droid “We need to inspect the base all the same”.
You could also use both words in the intro text “Rex inspecting facilities during his patrol” etc.
I should point out though, that English is not my first language, so I’ll defer to your judgement in the matter 😃
About the droids reporting 4 clones escaped; it didn’t bother me at all, and if it bothers many members here I’m sure we can find a droid saying the word “three” or “some” somewhere in the series to paste in.
The blue text mentions Rex “patrolling” facilities, but shouldn’t it be “inspecting”?
I feel the “Two weeks later” could use a second or two more black screen before the visuals of the next scene start. Also perhaps surge of music just before this (as we focus on Hevy’s face) to further the idea that 99’s words have landed.
Other than that I was very pleased with everything - it felt contained and better than the three original episodes
I feel both are too long for cold opens.
How about you use the first failed excercise as a cold open, then show intro credits and blue text (implying that if they don’t pass they will end up on moon-guard duty), then go to version 1
This seems to be the best edit by far I’ve heard for this film. Can’t wait to see it. I’ll wait for a link for the next iteration however.
Do Rey and Poe know of each other in this edit? It seems strange if Rey has found Luke but she doesn’t send a message to Poe who is searching when he’s captured.
This is an interesting edit btw, I will look forward to it 😃
I also hate the PT droids, and have cut their voices as much as possible. You might have spotted a couple of ‘roger rogers’ removed from that clip already, and there’re more in the full episode. You do need to put up with their voices when they’re carrying important dialogue, but I’m getting rid of as much trash as possible.
There are audio editors, like Audacity, that can change the pitch of a sound without affecting the speed and vice versa (often used by guitar players for practice). Perhaps lowering the pitch by a few percent will make the battle droids sound less ‘cartooney’?
Do you plan on doing similar fanedits for ep2 & ep3? If yes, consider naming them non-sequential episode numbers to further the idea that they are scattered episodes of a missing series; so this is ep4, the next ones could be ep9 & ep15 for example
Since it’s supposed to be a single episode from a lost series, you could start with “previously on Knights of the republic” intro with a 30-second montage of things cut from your edit that might still provide some backstory
These are all great suggestions, thanks! Will reply shortly with some rough clips for testing
This sounds like quite a different and interesting edit. How will you transition between the two movies?
I was watching 2010 the other day, and though of a few things for a fan edit project.
I love the film as is, and I don’t feel it really needs any alterations; however there are a few ideas to help it be a little closer in tone to 2001, yet still have it retain its own identity. Pretty much all of these ideas involve the audio rather than the picture, with one exception.
1: The 80s score sounds a bit dated. So changing to classical music (preferably lesser known works than 2001, and more Khachaturian to fit the Soviet scenes) for certain scenes might make a difference. Any suggestions welcome.
2: We have sound in space in this film which was not present in 2001, and could be removed for exterior shots.
3: I never liked the sound of Floyd’s narration; it sounds like it has a lot of reverb and was recorded in another room than the mic. Also I think there is a lot more narration than necessary. So I would edit the narration length down, and to filter it so it sounds like he is talking over the radio and have them played over exterior space-travel shots.
4: I never really liked the “Bowman visits wife & mother on earth” shots; and I’m considering cutting them altogether.
Season 2 could be the sequel; 2010
I feel Tattooine has been done to death in the ever shrinking SW galaxy. It’s refreshing with a new location.
Just my opinion of course
May I have a link as well?

Will the scene in Ben’s hut be true to the way it was shot or the way it was edited? I understand why Adywan changed it for continuity reasons, but it was edited with the second half first for a reason; and is one of many ways the original film was saved in editing.
For Lando, maybe it’s possible to increase his presence in the film by using his voice in some places (offscreen, over radio etc) from his large body of radio plays and voice acting for games.
Billy Dee Williams voiced Lando in all of the following:
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back radio adaptation
Dark Empire audio drama
Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
Star Wars Rebels series
Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront I
That way his limited screen time will be made up for a little bit? Thoughts?
I realize that Mark’s memory may be incorrect after all these years, but he mentions it being filmed here:
So this was the original line when meeting Leia, and the film must exist somewhere. Why hasn’t it been included in deleted scenes or making-of docs? It would be interesting to see for sure.
Any new reviews David? Great writing so far
This is now my go-to version of Solo. All the right cuts for a seamless fan edit. Great job!
It’d be nice to see a fan edit with different markings or colors for the ROTJ X-wing. Luke shouldn’t be red 5 anymore, he should be Rogue leader.
