How’s this? It puts the music even more through the wringer, but it might be acceptable.
Sounds great to me!
Can anyone clarify though if the ice wall they break through is supposed to be behind the oncomimg TIE’s?

Awesome! Makes me feel like I’m publishing a 70’s grindhouse flick. 😃
Here’s poppasketti’s visual and my audio for Ochi’s ship leaving. Be honest, does this feel legit?
Imo it still needs another pass. The flight path is a little too straight and Kylo looks a little bit copy/pasted into the shot, not sure why.
I was going to say the same thing, that the flight path is perhaps a little too staright.
Maybe it should go to light speed sooner, or were you trying to extend the shot?
Here’s the two Klaud removal shots:
Link is downloadable and it’s also in the “Master Clips” folder!
That is cool! Great work.
Poor Finn, his character was so mishandled. The most interesting thing about him from TFA was a stormtrooper who turned (showing storm troopers could be more than just drones) that would have been something totally new and have his character build upon that with the Star Wars brand. (Which the leak Dual of the Fates script built upon, that was a good direction IMO)
… and then in this movie … the crew meets up with A WHOLE PLATOON OF TURNED STORMTROOPERS who essentially said “Hey, you know what was cool and unique with your character at the beginning of the trilogy, not so unique anymore! (cue in Nelson’s “Ha Ha!”)”
Anyway, with the whole thing regarding Finn’s proclamation of not telling Rey something. It was still baffling in theaters what HE wanted to say to her, but also, the context of the scene. (Yes, we see throughout the movie it heavily implies he is force sensitive, but again, not really points to what he wanted to say to her.)
The crew, made up of close friends, are probably about to be buried in quicksand and die. The last thing while he wants to say before he dies to his close friend is “I may be force sensitive?!”
Just think about it. The logic and context of the scene is baffling. Let’s say you are with a bunch of friends swimming in the ocean and you all get caught by an under current. You are all about to drown, and one of your friends turns to you and says: “INSERT NAME HERE, I always wanted to tell you I can bowl a perfect 300 game!”
Impressive. Yes. Interesting? Sure. But in that context, makes no sense to blurt out as his/her dying last words.
So although I don’t think you can get around that scene, the context of it MAKES NO SENSE for him to shout that out. You ASSUME you are about to die. That’s what his last dying word(s) will be for that moment? So for me its the context of the scene. That’s what I have a problem with it, personally. On top of that … he then keeps it as a secret the whole time? Really?
That ends my TED Talk.
TFA set up the cards to make him an interesting, unique idea.
A nameless faceless stormtrooper who turns into a new hero, maybe even a Jedi…that adds something to the SW universe. It explores the philosophy/joke that every SW fan has made for decades about whether the Stormtroopers deserved sympathy for just regular people doing their jobs.
TLJ and ROS had no idea what to do after that point. JJ sort of had the “secret Jedi” in the works but never actually followed through, and Rian did the weird “subverted expectations” suicide and tacked on romance, neither of which meant anything.
The Duel of the Fates script gave a far far better completion to his arc that didn’t even NEED the secret Jedi aspect, yet they didn’t go with that either.
Maybe it will be possible someday to Deepfake some sort of Stormtrooper rebellion?
His was the first face we saw in in the TFA teaser, “There has been an awakening”!
It should’ve been Finn 😦
For what it’s worth, that’s why I like the clips JakeRyan17 posted in the redux thread (I believe they said Snooker made them?) where Finn calls to Poe instead, and Rey asks “So what were you gonna tell him?” in the cave. Even though there’s no romantic payoff for them, it’s believable that he was about to confess then jumped waaaay back when it turned out they weren’t dying after all. Works better than the force sensitivity or a random resurgence of his brief crush on Rey, anyway.
I also thought Snookers tweaks gave his character more overall progression, I felt there was little in the film aluding to him being Force sensitive unfortunately 😦
Idea: place Poe’s “can we kiss?” line during the final celebration when he’s embracing with Finn.
If the shot’s not long enough I remember a much longer alternate take/different angle existing in the documentary.
For the record I am desparate for these two characters to be in love because I desperately want to see people like me on the big screen for longer than one second.
That’s one of the changes I made in my version. I posted the clip somewhere in this thread, but it might be simpler to point you to this thread instead.
Hadn’t come across StormPilot before but those changes for me flow a lot more naturally than the forced ReyLo we got 😦
It’d be nice to have at least one arc in the ST 😃
Okay, party people. A LOT of you sent in voices for the Fleet, so I’m trying to find a balance between making sure everyone’s got a line in there while still making some lines stand out and not muddying the whole thing up. This is what I’ve got right now, let me know what does and doesn’t work:
Version A: https://vimeo.com/427444580
Version B (moved lines of encouragement to Poe to a different shot, not sure if it works): https://vimeo.com/427446625
Passwords are fanedit
Great job axlanian, really lifts the scene!
I’m feeling Version B myself 😃

I just wanna comment here so I can see updates. How far off completion is this?
Ady, I just wanna say thank you for these edits as they were the one thing that pulled me back into the franchise after TLJ. Your talent was also one of the reasons I started doing fan editing myself.
Hey Movies Remastered
Unfortunately the project has been delayed, you can read about it here:

Not sure if anyone has seen the ending of this video but the Kylo force ghost and removed old lady is pretty impressive. https://youtu.be/cW-mx3xUHT0
Ouch! Works a little too well as a comedy 😦

Here’s a potential rough proof of concept for an alternate ending I had in mind:
Edit: As you can see I’ve sort of given up.
“Did you hear something grandfather?”
just adding in the opening, something that kylo has found the wayfinder …
And “boom!” 😃)
I personally still think that the movie should start with this clip. And completely erase mustafar. (Which doesn’t seem to mustafar)
That’s an awesome suggestion jonh!
Hadn’t seen that clip before, it’d be a great cold opener.
The actual beginning was needlessly confusing but there’s some outstanding salvaging work going on here by you all!
More Concept art from, Colin trevor’s duel of fate.
Thanks for the the link.
It all looks so great, just deepens the disappointment for me 😦
It’d be cool if an animated alternative episode IX could be made using the available concept art as key frames.
Just updated the Finn Wakes sequence with a quieter “Finn” and removed the force call sound! Same link:
That’s excellent! Great job!
Here’s the only non-Palpatine related tweak I’m considering, thanks to the idea from Rogue Leader.
I had piece together Rey whispering “Finn”, because all of times she says his name were in the wrong tone! At the end of TFA when she’s speaking to him while he’s unconscious, she whispers “friend” and “again”, which is where this came from.
Perhaps a touch quieter?
Great job Adywan!
As mentioned above the new canyon matte looks beautiful.
Looks as though you’ve managed to tweak R2’s trajectory after he’s received Leia’s message, he doesn’t appear to headed for the wall now.
Thanks for the clip 😃
If Adywan ever wanted to use any of my ideas I’d be honoured, and would understand if not 😃
If it’s included or not it’s some radically awesome thinking!
I’d love to see the ‘flash’ on the bottom of the stardestroyer lined up correctly.
That’d be cool but “can it be done?”
When R2 plays Luke’s holographic message to Jabba, Luke’s lightsaber is shown clipped to the right side of his body. Then before the message ends a brief shot of Luke’s hologram is visible showing his lightsaber clipped to the left side of his body indicating that in all previous shots of Luke before the one with the message ending, Luke’s holographic image was flipped.
NOTE: In the film Luke keeps his lightsaber clipped to the left side of his body (this is also true in TESB).
Good call Tantive3+1
Those flipped shots of Luke really bugged me at the time as his hair parting was on the wrong side which stood out to me more.
Makes you wonder how a “small” detail like a massive hologram of one of the main characters got through in the first place
It’s possible the Rebels are leaving through the South Entrance.
Great point! 😃
Ady had a map based on the shot of the transports flying towards the Star Destroyer at some point.
Did he share it in this thread?
On the subject of overthinking things 😉
Now that we see that the transports are leaving from outside the shield doors:
Are we to assume that the Empire have entered via another entrance & that the rebels are leaving via the back door?
Before Revisited the area from where the transports were leaving was undefined.
Hopefully someone can rectify my overthinking 😃
Why does he say “ok we’re going, we’re going” in reaction to something that simply is not there?
I had always assumed R2 was anxious because the base was being overrun by the empire & they appear to be among the last to be leaving.
Everyone else around them do look pretty calm though as they’re packing their bags, perhaps it’s a different exit from the base that’s behind them 😃

I made a few screenshot comparisons from the first act. I can make more if anyone is interested.
The external shot immediately proceeding the ion control one is also great for continuity/geography.
Great job Adywan!
Hope you can enjoy a showing of it some time away from After Effects!
Continuity is fantastic, other than the big ticket shots most of your hard efforts passed me by seamlessly, which is intended as high praise!
Did anyone else notice an issue with the audio around 1’48", just before the Falcon lifts off from Cloud City? The sound of the lasers blasts seemed distorted.
Just a reminder of release info Adywan posted earlier in the year 😃
A lot has changed since Star Wars Revisited was released 10 years ago. What is the plan for distribution?
It will be an 8gb(approx) 720p mkv file at first, most probably available through usenet and direct download links. Torrents will most likely crop up not long after. The 25GB bluray and DVD will follow later in the year once i have completed the special features, which i haven’t started yet because i have been concentrating on getting the edit out of the way first
Thanks for all your efforts Adywan!
18:01 tonight unplug your internet & enjoy a pint! 😃
