Right… as with most editing tasks, the Tatooine to Trask segment turned out to be a rabbit hole!
Once I had decided that the simple wipe to cover the entire journey didnt flow, it opened up a lot of work and tinkering to get the segment to work. There were a number of things that made it tricky, such as Grogu’s variable presence in the cockpit. However, I have managed to put in the interaction with the X-wings, which has helped give the movie some galaxy-wide exposition.

Anyway, here is the completed segment.

All that is left now is some dialogue tidying, touching up the opening pan shot, end credits and a final decision on whether to include the deepfake Luke.

If anyone wants to do a test viewing let me know, it would be good to get a couple of checks before going public!

Overall the clip works well, but there is a minor continuity issues at the end- they land ok, but the ship is dripping wet as they walk away from it. Perhaps just cut from the landing straight to the overhead shot of them walking toward the canteena? Or cut out from the planet approach straight to the same shot of the party walking to remove the issue of the razor crest being damaged. There also a frame around 7 mins 19 secs that appears to just be a black screen. I would be happy to preview/test if it helps.

Managed to finish the Trask to Corvus link. The damaged Razorcrest plot point has been removed from the movie.

At first, I was like… but we don’t know where that person who planted it came from but then I realized it doesn’t matter. So, yeah, it’s really good. Perfectly seamless.

Yes, the insinuation being that its placed whilst Mando is on Trask, and we know the Empire has a presence there.

Here is the Corvus to Tython link. This one is pretty straightforward - just a couple of music edits and removal of the Child-Mando dialogue that I used in the Trask-Corvus link sequence.

Nice work on the audio to remove the bickering over Grogu being trained, totally seemless. Do you have a clip of your refined MOFF Gideon reveal to Mando?

I wasn’t happy with the opening crawl, so I’ve been playing around with it. I’ve settled on this. Any comments?

Following the Battle of Endor the NEW REPUBLIC has restored peace to the core systems, but a power vacuum has plunged the outer rim into chaos.

IMPERIAL REMNANTS have formed in the shadows. They have taken control of distant worlds as they search for a mysterious asset that could return them to power.

Commissioned by the Bounty Hunter Guild and given only the asset’s age and the promise of a vast reward, a lone MANDALORIAN approaches its last known location…

I would suggest maybe changing “imperial remnants have formed in the shadows” to either linger in the shadows or dwell in the shadows… I think it sounds a little more sinister & menacing
