Just hopping in here to ask about the stormtrooper saying “Ghouls!” at 19:02 in workprint 2 - is that staying? I honestly think it should be removed. Not only is it an awkward line, but when I first saw it in theatres I thought he was saying “Cool!” Anyone else with me on this one?

100% agree and I thought the same about “cool”. I thought that was a bad line and then heard Ghouls which was even worse!

It doesn’t need a line. I just cut to the head drop orchestral stab just after the Troopers look at each other.

lol, yeah. What nonsense. Makes me embarrassed for any SW stuff I see on YouTube or anything like that.

If they do, great. But at this point there’s not much to do. And even if they did, it wouldn’t obviously change anything we’d do beforehand.

It’s been so disappointing to see so many YouTubers covering this trash! Especially those that bitch about the mainstream media. They’re doing exactly what they’ve accused the media of by reporting BS on every channel. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Work in progress shot!

I’m having a lot of trouble with the chroma key on the Star Destroyer (because the free program I use doesn’t have chroma key.) Does anyone have any suggestions for this?

I could render out my background plate (with moving waterfalls and clouds) and have someone else comp in the destroyer?

I can give it a try if you like? What program are you using?

I spent a few hours re-sorting the LEGO Star Wars voiceover lines by character instead of level. This should make relevant lines easier to find: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1x9jVm0p8GydqtH1Vvl0SHtfbuIfkUzJV?usp=sharing

Wow! This must’ve taken a lot of time. If anyone is still looking for Leia to say “come home” there’s the clips you’ve been looking for.

Here’s what I’ve got so far:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pREsyomXeYU&feature=youtu.be

“He’s Alive, Rey:”

  • He means nothing to me”
  • “I sense she’s west”
  • “The girl I’ve heard so much about”
  • “The pull to the light”
  • “I will tear that information from their mind”
  • “He gave the order”
  • “You can’t hide, Rey.

Really nice work. I know how time consuming this type of thing is. I tjink you pulled it off well.

Sure, if there’s some way to convey the peoples of the galaxy are under a oppresive FO regime and have this being their primary motivation to join the battle at Exegol, instead of just being cowardly/lazy until Lardo charms them out of it. Maybe you could use some shots of FO Destroyers over planets for your Palpatine broadcast montage.

That’s exactly what I’m thinking. I originally had shots of other planets but they just stood out as recycled footage, then I designed the Coruscant and kylo scenes but now I’m thinking of mixing both ideas and have the destroyers appear in each sky scene to highlight the treat and change the original footage more. 🤔

I did wonder. I was thinking of adding star destroyers arriving at each planet destination before the battle starts to add to the reason why the galaxy got involved but I couldn’t think of a reason why they would do that unless they were xyston class destroyers.

In my headcanon I just assumed the First Order had occupied and laid siege to all those worlds in the aftermath of TLJ, paying off what Rey stated in that movie: “The First Order will control all the major systems within weeks”. Perhaps this detail could be included in a redone opening crawl.

I’ve just filmed a tutorial crawl video including my new layout. Should be edited in a few days. So, Do you think that Star Destroyers orbiting each planets atmospheres would be a good set up before the final battle?

While personally I don’t want his broadcast in the movie, I can see that there’s a point where it could possibly somehow be placed in the movie itself: when the resistance is at the base after Leias death, and rose and poe and the resistance find out about the stupid death Star destroyers, you could put Palpatine’s announcement over in that part of the movie, and cut to the galaxys reaction maybe, and then it could flow into the scene where they all head out to exegol and chewie and lando set out to find people. I don’t know how someone would do that with footage but that’s where it could be placed if someone wanted to for their version of the movie

That’s exactly where I’ve placed it. I played around with many ideas i.e. at the start of the message reveal, when we see Kylos ship, when Rey looks up and senses Chewie or this point. I feel it works here as it now gives that segment of the movie a swift gear shift and gives Lando and Chewie more of a successful reason for getting the fleet together.

Star Wars Episode IX: The Last Hope (Help needed?)
Time

I was trying to make it seem as if Rey and the others were scared of Kylo so they run from him without confrontation, boosting Kylos intimidation and lowering Reys Mary Sue feel.

In my trilogy, Rey doesn’t actually fight Kylo until the DSII scene. I reduced TFA fight to Kylo owning Rey but Rey swinging one lucky strike to give him a scar. I wanted it to feel that Kylo was closing in without actually landing or getting out of his ship. This way it feels like the others are being pinned in with the whisper coming in from one side and the TIEs coming in from the other. There is some more footage to play with but if I stretch it any longer Kylos TIE would seem like a standard horror movie where the monster seems closer in one shot but is actually still far away. It was a tough all to make but I feel it adds to the chase this way.

Here you go https://vimeo.com/407939026

I’m not sure what’s different?

Rey can’t destroy the whisper as it’s a modified prototype that shouldn’t appear in the following scene if destroyed, it shouldn’t blow up and kylo walks out unhurt after such an explosion and kylo shouldn’t play tug o war with Rey, he should attack her not the ship, my edit eliminates all those issues.

Without trying to sound rude or condescending about the topic of the broadcast, but why do people want it in? The crawl tells us Palps sends out a broadcast about his return and the Sith’s revenge.

Yet, through the movie, or at least the first time we see both sides (First Order’s board room and Rebels after the get the intel) and the concept of some radio broadcast is not even mentioned, or let alone eluded too. A simple line from either one side (or both) could have said a simple line like “So the broadcast was true/real” or “So Palpatine himself is really behind it” could have made it relevant BUT it’s not at all. It’s ignored. Not even mentioned.

So what’s the point of it in the crawl? What’s the point of it at all if neither sides even mentions it. Heck, they are both SURPRISED or at least completely unaware that Palpatine is alive OR even the possibility of it. Really? Even after this mysterious “radio broadcast?” Not even a simple one line? There is no connection to it in the movie. Unless someone acknowledges it, why is it mentioned in the crawl? Let alone trying to put it in.

Anyway, I am really trying not to “talk down to anyone who likes it or wants it,” I just personally don’t understand the need for it since the movie itself doesn’t acknowledge it.

Plus it’s kinda over the top … at least to me personally.

Oye I hope I don’t sound like a jerk from all that.

EDIT: as for the extending Kylo’s thinking scene, if it can be smoothed out I like the to add a little breathing room.

There needs to be a reason why the galaxy joins in. They didn’t listen in TLJ so why would they do anything in TROS without a broadcast across the entire galaxy?

TROS opening crawl including Palp has to go. It’s a huge cop out and is a spoiler imo.

I know it’s pretty late in the edit for me to ask for new stuff but, I found these videos on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Slsj4YeYaYQ , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIFlS772N1k is there any chance that Palpatine’s broadcast could be brought into the edit somehow?

Damn! That’s almost identical to the scene I’ve made. They did a good job getting rid of the time code of TFA clip but it doesn’t work in reverse.

Here are my thoughts on the small portion of the live stream that I had the chance to watch. (Passana chase to Rey landing on Exogol)

The pacing in general is a big improvement especially with how the scenes are cut and rearranged. I’m also digging a lot of the new creative ideas that you’ve come up with.

These are my critiques from memory but I’ll have to get my hands on a Google doc to give a more thorough analysis.

-Passana underground cave

  • The cut from Rey igniting the saber to the group walking around is too jarring, I prefer how Hal intercut the Knights of Ren shot as a buffer. I also missed the flash light gag, thought it was hilarious, but to each their own!

  • Recutting the Serpent’s introduction to give a more monster movie/Jurassic Park feel is a great way to build up tension. I think 3PO’s talk about the “law enacted in old Republic” should be moved up to when the crew see the snake, showing that 3PO is unaware of the danger.

"Breathe, just breathe "

  • Nice nod to TLJ. I think it needs to be a little more subtle but it could just be the audio quality of the stream.

Rey/Tie fighter/ Chewbacca shuttle

  • Brilliant idea, I think you should use Dominic cobb’s version that makes the scene longer using trailer footage. I think the scene should focus more on Kylo Ren’s approach, building more tension and not intercutting to the crew during the standoff.

"a prisoner?"

  • The scene where Hux and Pryde talk of there being a prisoner on the transport is a dead giveaway of Chewie being alive. I think you should cut all indication of him being alive until it’s finally revealed on Kigimmi. I’d also cut the scene where Hux introduces Pryde to “the beast that flew with Han Solo”. The first time that we see him after his “death” should be when the crew finally meet him in his prison cell. That way you create anticipation for his rescue😉

Drama on the Death star

  • Leia voice reaching out to Rey after sensing what she did to her son sounded kinda casual, maybe she could say “Rey, no !” instead. I wonder if the shot of Leia dropping her com-link would be more suitable for this scene? It would mirror the scene in TFA where she sensed the death of Han Solo.

the Princess of Alderaan has disrupted our plan

  • Since in this version Han’s memory/spectre is what intervened and Leia just senses what’s happening from a far, it doesn’t really make sense to have Palpatine say that in this context.

Palpatine’s message/Kylo on Coruscant

  • While Palpatine sending out his message after initiating the “final order” is not a bad idea, including Kylo Ren on Coruscant in the montage right after seeing him throw away the saber on the death star just doesn’t follow logically in this context. Maybe you could replace it with the shot of Kylo looking determined after having thrown away the saber. Otherwise you could place the message in the beginning of the film as the prime mover of the plot. The thing that ignites the race for the way finder’s and by extention, Exogol.

These are some of the nitpick I had based on the short time I had on the live Stream. Overall I’m very impressed with what you’ve done so far, looking forward to get my hands on a workprint!

Passana underground cave
I haven’t seen Hals edit of that so I’ll check it out. I really wasn’t a fan of the flashlight gag 😉

"Breathe, just breathe "
I’ve changed that audio volume so many times but it seems to change on every device I play it on. *frustrating!

Rey/Tie fighter/ Chewbacca shuttle
Do you have a link to Dominics cut? I’ve not seen that…

"a prisoner?"
I did originally cut this and the reveal scene but I couldn’t get the transition to work well. I’m still going to try and do a workaround as I really don’t like that scene. I liked the chewie and hux scene, I originally removed that too but thought it suited that scene better.

Drama on the Death star
I did have her saying “Rey no” but I thought just keeping it to “Rey” would mimic Han saying “Ben”. the com drop is used at the beginning after Luke dies. Not sure if you saw my alternative opening? https://vimeo.com/419937146 pw: fanedit

the Princess of Alderaan has disrupted our plan
I did think that but I feel that if Leia didn’t reach out to Rey then her killing Kylo would have pushed her towards the darkside more instead of giving her a wakeup call from her fit of rage and healing him.

Palpatine’s message/Kylo on Coruscant
I’m still working on that scene. I wanna make it feel like Kylo is split and maybe have some way of troops being pulled back on Coruscant. I’m trying to get the vibe that Kylo is 50/50 at this point leaving the audience questioning his next move.

I feel the message being there is the way it ignites the galaxy to help. The message sent out by Leia at the battle of Crait didn’t really hit home to everyone but Palp sending this message at this point of the movie is what the galaxy needed to all pull together, IMO.

I’m still trying to upload a 480p version to my google drive but it keeps failing. I’m really starting to lose it with my internet provider. I don’t have enough phone data to upload such a large file. 😦
