I think the TIE fighter bit from the opening sequence is just a matter of the perspective shifting, not an actual continuity error.

I agree, i also think that the hanger “extending into space” is down to an exaggerated angle of perspective. Form what i can tell the platform is raised and it looks like the hanger has two floors but at the same time there is no sign of this in the official cut away diagrams, either way i think ady will be making a miniature to replace the terrible mat painting behind lando and han so he may come across the solution when he does.

OK, I’d like to begin with saying this isn’t my idea and it is one from another editor they may or may not be end up using it, but its an idea none the less that I thought might be worth sharing as it requires little to no alterations, to already planned edits.
Rather than having Death Star I and then II the idea is to have the death star damaged or at least only partially destroyed, and then repaired over the course of ESB to be once again fully operational.
Now as you are reconstructing your original edit of ANH it seems to me that you could alter the destruction of the DS to leave fragments or a husk behind (idk how well that would fit in with the 70s SP aesthetic) but you’ve already shown you have a knack for that sort of thing.
It also wouldn’t interfere (form what I can see) with your plans for ROTJ, except for the possible removal or replacement of some dialog.
Thirdly, though this is more of bonus it wouldn’t interfere with anything from TFA as they only ever refer to the first DS as THE Death Star, so that even makes more sense if its just one.

Anyway its just an idea and if Adywan doesn’t feel it belongs in revisited I’m sure Digmodification will get to it at some point, I just thought it could make a fine edition to your collection. At the same time I don’t know how you or Digmod would feel about it being incorporating here, as it was his idea but that is only something to sort out with him if you were going to use it.

Looks amazing and its as it should be. I have never been comfortable with the idea of removing peoples contributions from a film the way Lucas did. Did I miss Shaw? Not really but I certainly preferred him over Christensen. If I had been George and I was going to paste a random actors head in there for no good reason I would have done it with David Prowse. That would have been a good reason. Still WB Sebastian!

How does this guy have 100% positive feedback, that shouldn’t be possible. How can no-one have given him less than a five star review. I looked at what people said and most of them seam to either the same word for word or at least along the same lines, plus none of them are more than 10 words. I wouldn’t be surprised if he reviews are bots so that when someone reports him a mod looks at his reviews and goes “5 star reviews, 100% satisfaction rate, 10% PROFIT FOR US(!!!), looks fine to me”. Its scummy but considering the amount of product he pushes ebay will ALWAYS look the other way. What a sleemo.

  • Removed Han shooting a stormtrooper while facing the other way.

Ah its a bit of a shame but it does make sense. It was a one in a million shot, though I did feel that Han new that, considering his surprise at hearing someone get hit. I always imagined he was thinking ‘Never tell me the odds’ as he looks back to where the trooper was. Still its not the end of the world if it goes.

As far as the V1 vs V2 debate, I for one am more inclined to the V1 version since it felt like the Resistance absolutely failed and that their destruction of SKB was out of revenge. Almost like a “Remember the Alamo” type of situation.

Having SKB just immediately start targeting the Resistance base almost makes out the First Order to be too good at what they do. I like the idea of them being almost like children trying to take each others toys away. SKB destroys the Republic, and then the Resistance destroys SKB out of spite and revenge.

Just my 2 cents

Don’t worry, I don’t think anyone will ever think the First Order are good at anything after…

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 **
Time

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…

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.
