Hello editors, new to posting here, but have been fan-editing for a few years now on fanedit.org (mostly just workprints for my personal collection.) I am a huge fan of the Hal9000 Star Wars edits, they are definitive for me!

I have been watching this thread and just finished my own full trilogy edit. I am sure this is not the place to post but this is the thread I have been reading so I thought it was right to share here.

One thing that I haven’t noticed anyone mention but seems ok with the amount of changes being discussed:
I moved the moment of Ben reviving Rey to BEFORE she beats Palps. I am sure everyone here can take this idea and make it better, if it works at all.

Again, I have nothing but admiration for what everyone is contributing! I know when this is all done, the result of the group effort will be amazing.

This right here is Absolutely brilliant. his death feels more appropriate, it adds more weight to the climax, you can add leia’s voice as well as her ghost and Even bens ghost to the confrontation. I think there needs to be some edits of Palpatine laughing or reacting but otherwise great idea, and maybe put the voices of all the Jedi to when she’s reflecting the lighting

Yoda’s theme during the X-wing’s resurrection makes sense. It harkens back to Luke who didn’t think he could do it, which was where his head was at for most of the ST, and hits home how he’s grown and changed throughout this story.

The music that played as Luke revealed to Leia that they were family plays as Lando reaches out to serve as a father figure to Jannah, and he may very well be. This is a bit of shorthand, and is the only thing that tells the savvy viewer that he’s not just picking her up.

I like the music as Ben dies. It touches on the big theme of the movie on the soundtrack that strikes me as a combination of Kylo’s and Rey’s themes, which is nice. I don’t really want to shoehorn in a love theme between other characters into that moment.

I agree, it played in clone wars and rebels I think it’s also morphed into the theme of teachers and students

“Your father threw you away like trash, as did his father… Emperor Palpatine.”

The plot thickens.

I like it.

That’s cool, I understand the concerns with them being drunks, but I do think it makes rey palpatine less jarring and strengthens the trilogy, unfortunately the whole rey palpatine thing is kind of a very important aspect of the movie, I think keeping her a palpatine is the best course of action

Sorry to change the subject, but I was thinking more about changing more of 3PO’s dialogue after he gets his mind wiped.

Please let me know who you are, you clever bastard, but someone came up with that line to replace “Whoever this Chewie person is, this is madness!” with “And I will be your protocol droid!” I’m not sure if this has been officially included yet.

I had two other ideas for later dialogue:

When we catch back up with 3PO speaking to the stormtrooper, we could hear 3PO rambling on about himself, something like, “I am fluent in over 6 million forms of communication!”

Meanwhile, the stormtrooper is trying to interrupt him. “Please, stop talking.” 3PO rambles on. Then he says, “Ugh, kill me now.” Then Rey shoots him.

3PO naturally freaks out. Maybe we can take some 3PO screams from the other movies.
You could replace the line, “Oh my, my first laser battle” with “This is madness!”, which fits better here, and/or random screams each time she kills another person, and then maybe have 3PO stutter his response to Rey. “They- they haven’t come back. Oh my…”

Alternatively, it could be funny to reuse the line, “I was programmed for etiquette, not destruction!” But it might not fit (or be isolated enough to use)

That kill me line is really good

I don’t like how they sold her to protect her, it’s honesty much better if they just sold her fro the drinking money, maybe palpatines son was discarded and disgraced by everyone because he is the son of the emperor, he turns into a drunk and sells her, kylo Ren can say that in the scene on the ship by getting his line from the last Jedi “I didn’t lie to you, your parents sold you for drinking money”. Works in every aspect and it even makes his lines towards the end of the movie better, and I cheesy “my parents were strong” it would be more effective that everyone in her family was a bad person

Cut the flashback entirely. The films are stronger if Rey’s parents were a couple of drunken assholes.

I agree, I like the angle where palpatines son could have been disgraced by everyone due to his fathers actions and became a drunk, maybe kylo can say something to alude to that, or maybe make him say “I didn’t lie to you, they sold you for drinking money” I think it keeps the palpatine thing but doesn’t entirely discount the last film

Question for you guys: is everyone ok with MySpleen and Google Drive for retrieving these edits?

That looks really great jonh! Excellent job so far. I’m curious, how did you create the shots where they all raise their hands to help Rey?

For obi wan, anakin and luke, I have photographed my hand, and for yoda, I did a montage with the ROTS yoda arm …

I think I’m going insane… The video attached to that link says it was uploaded a week ago, and there’s no shots of them lifting hands…

in part 2 where they raise their hands
