Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi - Consistency Edition (V3 Released)

Snoke’s throne room is actually on the Star Destroyer over Mustafar, not on the planet. The entire background would had to been changed during the throne room fight if that was the case.

Cutting a lot of stuff with Finn was necessary because he’s with Rose throughout the movie. But the deleted scenes with Poe and BB-8 were done to soften the blow so to speak, putting more focus to his belonging with the Resistance and his desire to see Rey again.

Kylo doesn’t conquer Mustafar in either the movie or this edit. In Episode 9 he’s just there to get the Wayfinder and the locals were simply in the way. But in this edit, with Snoke using the planet as his own, I tried to imply the fighting happened because the locals didn’t like him dying and having Kylo take his place. With the Wayfinder, Kylo simply finds it because he senses it.

I’m glad you liked the other changes I’d made though. I appreciate it.

I understand that. But it’s not really important if the throne is on the surface or the Star Destroyer. It’s a perfect new beginning after the crawl. I like it.

I understand why you must cut the scenes with Finn. There is not much what anyone can do. I feel a little bit sorry for Finn.

I understand what you would imply with the Mustafar scene, but it work not so well for me.

Hi Revan. I watch your edit and I really like the ideas. The new beginning suggest that Snokes Thronroom is on Mustafar and I really like the idea. The short talk between Snoke and Hux suggest that he gives Hux the Order to attack the Rebel base. Hux is now much more competent. I love that new beginning. As Luke talk about his encounter with Ben, I love the idea with the vision of Palpatine, what triggers Luke’s lightsaber ignition. And the shot of Vaders Castle, before we see Ben and Reys first force connection is really cool. Cut the whole Chase, Holdo and Rose. But I missed Finn a little bit. His sacrifice on Crait (whitout the kiss) is a really strong scene, but I don’t sure if it works whitout Finns Arc in the film. That makes me a little bit sad. A little problem is the Wayfinder scene on Mustafar. If this is Snokes planet, why he must conquer Mustafar and why he find the Wayfinder. Episode 9 don’t explain that, but in the context of your edit is it a little problem for me. Your explanation with the locals fits not for me. But I like the edit and the ideas.

Thanks for your review Mario, much appreciated!

When I edited this cut of the Kenobi series I did so with the original trilogy in mind.

From watching the OT I never got the idea that Lea knew she was adopted when growing up, probably because George came up with the idea of Luke and Lea being twins when he did ROTJ 😊. When Bail takes Lea to look after at the end of ROTS I always figured he and his wife would raise her as their own child, and only they would know that she wasn’t. That would serve as a much better cover. To me the way the writers went with it in the Obi Wan series didn’t make much sense. This is of course just my opinion but that’s why I cut all the talk about Lea’s real parents.

I cut the Vader Kenobi fight short because it feels so overpowered when compared to ANH. The best part of the fight to me is when we see Anakin’s face and they have their little talk. So I looked for a way to get there a little quicker.

Thanks for your reply IC. I understand what you mean. But I think kids eventually find out they’re adopted. I also like the scenes between Ben and Leia.

Hey IC.

I watched your fanedit yesterday and I really like it. You cut a lot of unnecessary or bad stuff and it’s a fast paced cool movie. I love the added music at the beginning (Ben look at Luke) and this make that little moment so much better. The chase scene in the wood is now perfect. Same for episode 4 in the fortress. You cut all the junk and now it’s awesome. Same for cutting the evil Lola plot. Cut the great Inquisitor at the end and Revas hunt for Luke works so much better. But there are a few scenes I missed. Ben and Leia talks about Padme, the final fight between Ben and Vader, the end scene on Alderaan and Qui Gon. But in the end its a really good fanedit. Thank you for your effort IC.

Thanks for all the great feedback! Glad you enjoyed many of the changes, and I think it’s a good thing if you don’t notice everything on a first watch, that means it is integrated smoothly. The reason I didn’t have Starkiller destruction setup like HAL’s wonderful edit is that personally I think it is a very tired trope for the “bad guys” to lose mere seconds before they were about to win. This was an awesome, tense storyline decision in 1977 with A New Hope, but we’ve seen that already in Star Wars! With a major complaint of The Force Awakens being how much it resembles A New Hope, I didn’t want that same exact plotline being in here too. I tried to create a more unique version of Starkiller’s destruction so it doesn’t just feel like Death Star 3. I think the way I framed it kept the drama more focused on Rey and Kylo here which is a much more interesting dynamic than another superweapon in my opinion.

Hey Acbagel. I’m sorry for my late response and thanks for your great answer. I understand your opinion and it works really good. But on the other hand really like the dramatic effect if Han dies and to make it more worse the Starkiller destroys the Republic. And it fits a little bit more with General Hux line in Last Jedi “The Republic is no more”
I like both Version and will see which one I prefer for my replacement. Thanks for your awesome work.

I saw the edit and it’s like the edit to episode 7. It’s really amazing and the best version of TLJ is see so far. The new beginning on the island and all the changes with Luke and Rey are amazing. The trainingscenes over the voiceovers works so great. The best thing - Luke isn’t grumpy, will not die and is a good master. I love it. The idea that Kylo shoots the ship with his mother and Luke help her to survive is the best solution. And I can’t believe how you turn Holdos sacrifice in a amazing Luke moment. I don’t hate Holdo, but that over the top moment fits awesome for Luke Skywalker. I love it so much. The final fight between Kylo and Luke is much more emotionally with the short flashbacks. Especially the short scene between Leia and Luke with Leias purple lightsaber. That was the best moment. All the other scenes are really good edited. The most unnecessary funny moments or other bad scenes are gone. The complete new scene at the end is really a surprise. The new music parts at the end there a little bit too loud for me. A really great edit. Can’t wait to see episode 9. Love it.

I’m not sure if I watch the newest Version, but this edit is really amazing. I like the theatrical Version really much, but this is much better. I think I missed a lot of the changes. All runs really smooth. And I love the a lot of the changes that are obvious. Poes interrogation is much cooler with the voices. Rey see the island in the sunrise is really cool. I love how you change Reys Escape. The death of Han is so much more emotionally and it gives more interpretation for Kylos motive. And I love the fight against Fin and Rey. Kylo is now more powerful and Reys not overpowered. And i prefer that the Star Killer Base fires at the end of the movie. But i like the version of Hal9000 a little bit more. I think it’s more dramatic if the republic will be destroyed seconds before the rebellion wins. And I love your new ending on the island. The original end is too long and that dream is amazing. And the deleted scenes are great. Awesome edit. Love him so much. Perfect if he would be in my language 🙂
