TFA: A Gentle Restructure (Released)
Time

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.

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?

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>1080p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

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.

The Force Awakens - Ridley's Edit (WIP)

(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.

Just noticed a fairly hefty mistake!

Just noticed an extremely bizarre editing mistake (at least I think its an mistake). When Palp gives the order to fire the DS laser, watch Luke. He is looking at the emperor and then to the window and then back, and repeats this exact action. I may be wrong but it looks like they looped it. Either way I don’t think I’m alone in thinking this is weird am I?

I’m sure Ady is pretty set on his additions and changes now, but I thought I might throw out one other idea.

At the end of the final space battle, I think a shot of Star Destroyers scattering into hyperspace would be an interesting addition. Not only would it give a little more context on what happened to the rest of the massive Imperial fleet (did the smaller rebel fleet destroy them all, did they surrender?), but it also could foreshadow the eventual return of the Empire as the reformed First Order in the next trilogy.

That sounds really cool, and idk how adywan is planning to shoot Endor scenes or if the 501st will be involved, but if he had imperial officer garb, it might be cool to use to have a star destroyer admiral say “Recall the fleet. The rebellion my have one this battle, but the war is not over…” (or something like that). Alternatively it could be easier to use you hyperspace idea, and have a few beats of the imperial march play just as they leave. Like you’d have to pick the right moment to cut to and the right part of the score to pick up an leave, but it could be extremely menacing.
