The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)
Time

Replaced Kylo Ren’s line “I never lied to you” with “You were right” for more intuitive and precise continuity with TLJ even as the scene retcons it. In that film, it is Rey herself who supplies the information that her parents “were nobody.”

Kylo Ren clearly wanted to take credit for what Rey said.

(…though, I would suggest the line can be changed from "I never lied to you. Your parents were no one. They chose to be, to keep you safe, to “We were wrong.* Your parents did love you. They chose to keep you safe,” as well as changing the “sold” in “They sold you… to protect you,” to “left,” since I never saw Rey’s TLJ arc as about “being insignificant in general,” but more that she needed to come to terms with her parents being bad people and stop caring about them, the “nobody” part is there not to say that Rey is insignificant, but only there so she would no longer use any destiny or purpose to feed her internal lie that her parents loved her and thought she was valuable so she’d feel loved, happy.)

Removed talk about Leia (and possibly Luke, depending on one’s interpretation of the scene) having known about Rey being a Palpatine.

The Leia thing is there to show to Rey that being related to Palpatine doesn’t inherently make her worthless.

*Both Kylo Ren and Rey believed at first that her parents did not care for her and thought she was worthless, until he learned the truth from Palpatine.

Oh, I know. This started as posting a silly TikTok.

To honestly fix it, I imagine you’d need to define why Luke gave up the search. I’d love for it to be he sensed Grogu and left to go be in The Mandalorian and was simply to preoccupied with training Jedi after that to bother with finding ancient Sith and Jedi attifants… but that’s really the only thing I could see doing it.

Also, not a plot hole, but why did Lando stay on Pasaana for 30 years? Like, Luke bails on the search, and Lando just… vibes in the desert for 30 years? Gave up searching for (presumably) Jannah?

It’s already explained in the film.

LANDO: Luke and I were tailing an old Jedi hunting. Ochi of Bestoon. He was carrying a clue that could lead to a wayfinder. We followed his ship halfway across the galaxy here. When we got to his ship, it was abandoned… No clue. No wayfinder.

Hey everyone ! I’m done with working on the DS fight for the crackling saber and I don’t intend to modify the shots from now (but I can always share the AE files so that one can make the modifications wanted). All the shots are available here, now the only thing needed is to reunite them !

https://mega.nz/folder/m5oD3IqA#5znVQQ_9m8AQSDGGFTw6RA

I’ll try to share the Exegol sequence next week.

This is absolutely insane. It’s incredible.


Not sure if this is something you would want implemented but watching your work on the crackling saber inspired me to make a few sounds to match it.

There is about 7 different sounds.

EDIT: Nevermind.

Besides that’s cool. By showing Vader literally physically lift up a whole person it shows his strength. He’s not just strong with the Force.

I was actually just watching a video explaining how no human could do that, so it’s either the Force, his cybernetics, or both.

Okay, but Vader is physically ‘‘that’’ strong.

Why I Love Prequel Yoda (and what I think people get wrong)

The force in the prequels is the same as in the original movies. They didn’t introduce anything new. Force lightning, telekinesis (Vader throws objects at Luke in ESB, force choking is technically telekinesis, Yoda lifting up an entire X-Wing), force speed and super high jumping (Luke did it in ESB AND ROTJ when he jumped up to avoid Vader, and Vader also did a big jump in ESB), seeing into the future, fast lightsaber dueling (sometimes Vader and Luke’s duels can actually be pretty fast in their most intense parts; the only reason they weren’t faster is because Luke is a novice force user and Vader isn’t trying to kill him, it makes a ton of sense that Jedi masters that trained for decades would be incredibly fast and powerful), it’s all there.

Just a point, but Yoda blocks Dooku’s and Palpatine’s Force lightning.

It is never mentioned or implied in the film that the Wayfinder belonged to Anakin specifically.

It was on Mustafar, stated in the novelisation, stated in the deleted scenes, and the current Darth Vader comic has him acquiring it directly.

The Alazmec of Winsit, whom Kylo Ren fights to obtain the Wayfinder, are a cult following Vader.

I said it wasn’t stated in the film; one shouldn’t have to go outside of a work and rely on ancillary material in order for it to make sense.

It’s pointing out that Anakin’s Force Ghost could’ve told Luke where his Wayfinder was, basically pointing out the massive plot hole in The Rise of Skywalker.

My gripe with this is,a character not telling another character something isn’t a plothole. By this same logic it is a plothole in A New Hope that Obi wan didnt tell Luke that Vader was his father and that he had a sister.

I wouldn’t frame it as a plot hole, but more of an Idiot Plot. On the topic of Obi-Wan, the reason he didn’t tell Luke that Vader was his father is so he wouldn’t be traumatized.

I had just came up with the idea of removing the mention of Leia from Finn’s “It’s something only Rey and the general would understand!” in a separate version of Hal’s edit, for those who choose to watch poppasketti’s TLJ edit which removes the “flying Leia” scene instead of watching Hal’s TLJ edit which does keep the scene, since Finn would not be familiar with Leia’s Force-sensitivity because of the aforementioned scene removal in poppasketti’s TLJ edit. Is this possible?

Unless you’re suggesting the characters also be CG, in which case I guess that could be tried out but I’m not sure how that would look compared to the rest of the film.

I stated that the recent live-action remake of The Lion King used the Unity game engine to animate 99% of its scenes in the film; in case you didn’t know, the filmmakers made the CGI for the remake look super photorealistic, it looks almost exactly like in real life.

My idea is that the film will be edited to make it appear as if Luke had been training with Yoda in the time period between ESB and this film, which explains how Luke became a better, more powerful Jedi in-between.

You said it yourself, that Luke isn’t as powerful as the prequel-era Jedi.

Also, regarding scenes you want such as the canon comics version of Vader’s “No!”, I suggested in Hal’s thread for TRoS that they create new scenes or stuff like Adywan did with the OT; however this should require collaboration, since I don’t think you have enough resources for new scenes matching the quality of the PT and OT, respectively.

One idea I have is using the Unity game engine, I recall it being used to animate 99% of every scene in the recent live-action remake of The Lion King.
