Looks sick! Can’t wait to see more! Hopefully a Scarecrow one!
Yeah, could I get a link as well?
I really enjoyed it! Can’t wait for 9! Do you have a title for it yet?
How’s the progress on the edit? I’m super excited!
This sounds really cool!
I’d delete the shot inside the cruiser from 1:26 to 1:27. You can see a little of Holdo’s arm moving. Other than that, exciting stuff!
I saw that you’d have draft tomorrow. Could I have a link to it when it’s done?
This is probably a change you already have, but Palpatine definitely needs to be set up in this one. He comes out of nowhere in ROS.
I’m loving the change list!
I really like RogueLeader’s idea! Maybe you could use the scene from Rise of Skywalker where he interacts with the helmet again.
That sounds right to me. Another thing I’d have changed, as this was just a pet-peeve when I first saw the movie, is that the music should be more evil and ominous when Kylo kills Snoke. It feels like whiplash when it’s portrayed as heroic and then he’s bad immediately after.
I forgot to ask this. How is Kylo’s fall to the dark side being handled? I don’t think Luke’s going to try and kill him in his sleep in this edit.
I love the sound of this! How will you deal with the Snoke and Kylo relationship? Since he wasn’t “bested by a girl who had never held a lightsaber”, some things will be different. I liked their scenes in TLJ except for the fact they made Kylo look wimpy. Every thing else makes me excited. I hope the Luke mourns Han scene is included. Another scene I’d like to be included is that unfinished Finn and Phasma scene. It bothers me that such a good scene was cut. Maybe some color correction and smoke filters can help hide the unfinished backgrounds. Looking forward to the change list in the future!
The Luke arc sounds very promising. I can’t wait for the thread/change list for it!
The problem with that line to me is Finn trying to sound tough and in this he gets wiped, so it would feel almost comical.
I really hope you can fix Luke’s arc in the next one because I disagree with it on almost every level. Rey just need to be depowered a bit in the first one to make her needing training feel more important and Kylo needed to feel intimidating throughout. Both of these you accomplished!
The narrative fixes/rearrangements really help the characters and help the plot feel less like New Hope V2
I loved every part of this! There were two bugs to fix: the opening crawl music starts a little late and Han’s you “hurt chewie you’ll deal with me” is duplicated. This edit has me excited what you can do with the rest. I really don’t like the others. Two editing things I’d have changed/fixed is to change the lightsaber noise when Darth Vader appears in the vision to match his and re-edit the Maz conversation because Rey says “what fight” when the line that triggered that one has been deleted. Other than that, amazing stuff from everyone involved in the clips/footage used! Can’t wait for more!
I’d love a link to this when it’s ready!
Sounds amazing! I own all of these and would love to a link when it’s done.
Rise of Skywalker Resurgence by krausfadr Latest Version
Loved the new ideas incorporated (Rey being more dark side oriented, killing her parents, Palpatine being a twist later on in the movie, Correlia destruction, etc).
Thank you to everyone involved in the creation of the force ghost scene, the Knights of Ren voices, and fleet voices. Really elevates those aspects.
There were some weird jump cuts when the trooper is shot with an arrow and Finn being force pushed. Some audio popping when Luke says you went straight to the dark and when Snapp dies. I think the “you sent down there ship” is a little clunky. The “you wanted your parents dead” and ship destruction footage is enough to show the audience what happened.
Would have liked some of the humor to be trimmed more (They fly now, be more optimistic, terrible job, sir). But that is personal preference.
Overall, really liked the new version! Would recommend it! Breathes a life into this movie that it needed. As it needs to cap off a saga.
