Star Wars: a series famously without any retcons before Disney took over.

OK, just to burst you bubble (Unless that was sarcasm, in which case I apologize but its hard to tell from text) but I’m sure you recall the Special editions came out before Disney. Also The Emperor anyone? Like between ESB and ROFJ he got a hell of a make over.

Retcon in the sense they just are random props in the background of ANH, nothing of value attached to them, and suddenly they get some kind of narrative meaning out of the blue, as if they meant something. Their use in TLJ already was kinda weak, in Solo it was just insufferable.

I’m calling for a vote on the name for that! Star Wars Sickness or Disney Disease?

Well he made the mistake of claiming he knows my address and that he would be coming to murder me. Doesn’t matter if the guy is in the USA or not, he threatened to kill a UK citizen. When this happens, it becomes a police matter. Several accounts using the same IP address have already been identified and they have been logged. The videos being posted and the fake adywan accounts, are all by the same guy, and so are most of the people commenting on his videos. So it’s up to me now whether i want to take this further legally or not.

shadow_freddie_1983, all i’m going to say is “i know”. You will know what that means. It’s time to stop

SOLO: A Star Wars Story: Fan Edit Ideas - ** SPOILERS &amp; MAGIC INSIDE **

Hal 9000 said:

lol, what the HELL is Darth Maul doing in a young Han Solo movie? I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I imagine that it is absurd as it sounds.

Basically, no-one in Hollywood knows how to make a movie these days without trying to copy some part of “Marvels Magic Formula”. And yes I know that Disney owns both but, the copyright owners have nothing to do with how that films should be handled. And handling a golden goose like the matured ugly duckling, just won’t cut this Swiss cheese of a movie, into a perfect slice of apple pie.
Still if they do go through with a Maul centered movie in the next few years I hope they can give him some character development.
As for the rest of Solo, I liked it for the most part but some of the jokes were pushed just to far. I need to re-watch it but the Han talking Wookie, while necessary could do with trimming to avoid the awkwardness. I couldn’t look at that think without think of that one seen from Fantastic Beasts, which was not a good memory to be reminded of. Also a few other bits but as I said I need to re-watch it.

Fair enough, but I think however it plays out it will always be weird that they hug THE FIRST TIME THEY MEET. Like maybe if they had met previously I would get it, but force or no force that scene will always require some good old suspension of disbelief.
Suspending disbelief in a Star Wars movie, unheard of right?!?! Why would anyone ever need to do that in a Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Space Opera about “space wizards with laser swords”?

It very much feels like the missing special edition Matte shot we never got and I can also think of another point it could be used again…

I hope that cheers you up a bit Ady 😃

I hope so too. Also how long will that shot be running for, as it might be odd that the trees don’t rustle and the clouds are still if it’s to long. I agree that it the falcon appears to land by one of the smaller temples but the lack a proper establishing shot always (not even exaggerating) bothered me and does make it unclear. Also I think its landing site should be changed to outside the main temple. I mean why would you park in the Burger King car-park just to cross the street to a McDonald’s?(random? I don’t care!)

BTW I think the guy with the hair dryer is standing on like the 2nd or 3rd level?

AND, Is there anything to be done about the super black interior of the rebel base. I’m going to assume it was like that to hide some set crimes and that it would have fitted better with that original night time concept. But I do look at it now and wander why the rebels didn’t put some new bulbs in. Maybe they couldn’t afford the electricity bill? Who Knows!?!?

Oh and Ady, there is a silver lining to everything you know. Here I guess it could be that you are officially cool enough to be impersonated. As community pillars go you are one of the biggest here and I know everyone here would agree its appalling someone would treat you that way. May the force be with you! (Too cheesy?)

Could we re-purpose this shot as a solution to the whole hugging thing? Then you could just remove the Rey one, or have that two IDK.

IDK how hard it would be to isolate them. And it might be a bit weird he has his bow-caster but, I guess he might just like carrying it around? I also get there is a pay off between them hugging here vs when Han dies, but I figure when are you more likely to hug and figured when you best friend/husband dies. Also we don’t know how long they have been separated so…

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>

The Sarlac. I totally understand getting rid of the stupid beak thing from the special editions, but I do feel like just the hole with a couple of lame (pun intended). Is there any plans for livening it up or are you set on just the gaping maw?
One idea I did have that move’s away form the SE’s go to solution (add stuff and lots of it) to to actually remove the Sarlac. Not the whole scene, but just the creature its self. So like keep the whole pit vibe and maybe a few tenticals crawling out, but as far as the actual beast is concerned maybe just have a deep dark hole filled if eerie sounds. Like it is called the Sarlac Pit so a bit of mystery when it comes to the creature its self couldn’t hurt.
Besides tension and mystery always beat action and cg.

The worst part of prosthetic is making them look good, while also allowing the actor’s performance to show through. Also can I just say great pick on Ady’s Part. I can see every last one of them in the Star Wars Universe, they just look the part. Break a leg, to all of you!

I think it would be really cool if a behind-the-scenes doc could be made for this fan edit. It’d be great for people to see Ady’s process and the amount of work the team put into everything. And especially since this will be the last in the Revisited series.

Agreed, even if its just a post production tour of all Adywans stuff, plus B role form the shoots. But there is already some interview stuff with Ady about his work on ANHR and some on ESBR:https://youtube.com/watch?v=2TDCCHlErl0
More of that would be sooooooo awesome, if he’s cool with it.

Yep. I’d put my hat in the ring, but Chicago is a bit far from the UK…

Well sure, it is with that attitude…

Are you saying that the distance between Chicago and the UK would change if his attitude did?

OK, so now I’m very confused. Is Adywan taking suggestions here? Like I don’t have any, that been made already, but it seems that everyone else does have, even though he explicitly stated that he wouldn’t be making any new changes for the HD version. But, he has still responded to new feedback and it seemed that he agreed with some so…

OK, this is a mistake:

So notice how the AT-AT head is facing 90 degrees from the body, a feet I’m pretty sure it cannot achieve. Its also odd considering that in the prior shot it was facing directly forward. Something also seems off with the perspective as the head is behind the near tree, even though the tree appears from the Arial shot to be some distance away.
I assume this came about because Lucas didn’t feel people could understand it was the AT-AT form a profile shot(?), but I really don’t know.

It might also make sense that they contained payloads. The rebels could have loaded the cargo in the bottoms of the ships with explosives, which could be jettisoned and flung at star destroyers. I mean if I were an imperial captain I wouldn’t bother attacking transports in the middle of a battle. But Uh oh, they just launched explosives at my bridge, big mistake.

Oh and another idea I had that may be more difficult to pull of (if not impossible) is that I feel it would make more sense for the beam to hit the Hosnian system’s star, blowing that up, which then has that same ‘death disk’ thing form the death stars explosion which hit and wipe out the planets. That rather than having it travel as a single beam which randomly fans out right as it gets to the planets, splitting into 5 different beam that perfectly hit each planet.

(Don’t you just love it when you accidentally hit CTRL R)
So I didn’t make myself clear, my bad. They were two different issues. First off, yes the cannon is separate, but I only meant to be referring to that in light of how it is glowing red, were as the thermal oscillator didn’t go red until it was about to fire. So maybe making it white or dark or something might be better.
Second is that based on this:

Yellow being the direction of light (which may or may not be incorrect due to 3D to 2D mistranslated on my part) I would say that the stream should be visible on either the surface, trench or just behind the edge of the base.
That’s that last I’ll say on it. I think I said what I meant this time.

I know you are using the same restructure as Hal 9000 when it come to Star Killer so here’s a heads up on a mistake I just noticed with their edit. When the resistance arrives, the weapon is not draining the sun. It only has an ambient red glow, as if it was ready to fire, but of cause it isn’t and the sun doesn’t become ready until Kylo kills Han. I’m not sure if it should be seen in any other shots where it is not, but yeah. I already let them know, I’m unsure if they are making changes anymore but at least you can catch it now.
