In the second, my first reaction was "NOOOOO, Adywan would never touch him" but on seeing what he did to the aliens in the Cantina some (very) subtle changes along similar lines would not be unwelcome. However I won't mind if he leaves him completely alone, and let's not crystal-gaze too much just yet.
Awesome news re the update, Ady! This will be the best Christmas ever! (Or January or, you know, whenever-you're-done.)
At the risk of sounding like yet another echo, take however long you need to do what's left on the edit.
Sorry to hear of your medical troubles Adywan (both with your body and the Establishment); I hope you manage OK, congrats on quitting, keep it up, and I so look forward to the completion of the edit. And to the Adywan Editions of Episode V and VI should you do them.
*big pleading eyes like Puss-in-Boots* any chance of doing the same with the ROTJ trailer? I can't download it...
I canna wait to see this nonexistent trailer!
I was also going to ask if you've removed the subplot about Leia being Luke's sister. I don't know how easy or how plausible this would be. It drives several of Luke's actions during the rest of ROTJ, but on the other hand it ruins their smooch in ESB, diminishes Luke's own importance, and it begs the question "Why the hell didn't Vader sense it in ANH or ESB, when he was much closer to her, and for longer, than he ever was to Luke?" I never liked it, even the first time I saw it.
Oh, how I love double negatives.
I just watched the Ben's death/Death Star escape clip for the severalth time. I love what you've done to make the Falcon and hence the whole sequence more dynamic, but I have a small idea. In the shots where we see the Falcon from in front, I suggest placing a small Death Star in the background of those shots. I don't know how "locked" that sequence is, or how much work it would be. The one shot I noticed in particular that wants it is at about 1:30:08 on the timecode, and there may be one or two others.
