Will the audio be updated to 5.1 or will that be in the final release?
😳😮🤯these changes sound awesome, would absaloutley love a link when it’s available please😁.
Hi Acbagel, sorry my review wasn’t very good. I think part of the problem is with TROS is that the film is a mess to begin with so it’s not that I didn’t like your edit of this but even jus thinking what would I do to fix it is a shoulder shrug from me lol.
For me personally there are so many little things with the theatrical release it’s hard just finding somewhere to begin, Hyperspace Jumping, Laia training Rey, Palpatine and his fleet of Star destroyer’s, Chewy’s dead no he isn’t, c3po loses his memory no he doesn’t, they fly now🤦 and that’s just off the top of my head what o can remember with the official release, so please believe me when I say I really appreciate what you have tried to achieve so no I don’t think the theatrical is better at all.
My thoughts on Kylo living is just my personal opinion and where as I like seeing something different I don’t know with this, I thought it was clever what you did but it’s just one of those things.
The alien spy, I know we see multiples of the same Alien just like we see Greedo after he was killed by Han in ANH. It’s just me being nit picky, sorry it’s not a very good answer but it’s an honest one.
Honestly for me personally you hit it way out of the park with 7 & 8 and am looking forward to seeing the updated versions you recently announced (if they require new links I would love them please).

Let’s rent out a theater and have a marathon of Starlight, Rekindled, and Ascendant.
+1 this, all the way👍
Wow some really amazing reviews of this Nev, I was already pumped to see this to say the least but now I honestly can’t wait to get some free time this weekend and give this the viewing it deserves. 🙌Well done for all the hard work and thank you once again for sharing this.
Will leave my thoughts and opinions bas soon as I get a chance to view👍.
I also put some lava in what looked like a river in the forest flyover.
Since we know that the RO shot is very similar in its opening to this one, I don’t think anyone should mind if the beginning of the biomes shot is cut. This way the back of the shot is emphasized, a part that wasn’t in RO.
This look beautiful Nev, honestly amazing work👍.
😳awesome thanks Nev really can’t wait to see this but can’t download til after work tho😬😭.
Thank you once again Nev.
😳pm already sent😁

Hi again Octorox and thank you once again for sharing your PT edits with me. I really enjoyed all 3 edits especially I-II, I know this is the extended edition so obviously we get the "It’s over Anakin, I have the high ground"🤦😂. I have thoroughly enjoyed your PT and just wanted to say what an amazing job you have done.
Thank you once again Octorox and please take care and look after yourself.
Hi again Acbagel, and once again thank you for sharing your ST edits with me. Like I previously mentioned I haven’t seen or read any of the legends material, so what you may be trying to achieve with your edit I might not see or realise why you made that change.
OK out of the 3 ST this one is the hardest mainly for me personally because I have only seen the theatrical version once (I do own the Blu-ray, but have only seen this movie in the cinema) the other times I have viewed TROS have all been fan edits so some of your changes I may have missed (which should be a good thing as this means everything has blended and flowed smoothly).
So I’ll start with the good.
Ok things I wasn’t a fan of or didn’t like (this is just me personally and only giving my personal thoughts and opinions)
We see Kylo drop the decapitated head of the alien spy on the table during their briefing with commanders, Later we see the same Alien giving Poe and Finn info about the first order. I think I know what you are trying to achieve with that cut but for maybe a first time viewer it may be a bit confusing.
The end Kylo lives, I appreciate the work you did to achieve this but for me personally it just didn’t work, especially when we see him boarding the falcon, I was like WTF 🤷 lol.
I’m sorry I haven’t left anything positive for this edit, I know it is a mess of a movie to begin with but the major changes that were made just didn’t work for me personally.
I honestly and truthfully enjoyed and love your TFA and TLJ edits and am looking forward to seeing the full finished edit but for me this one is a big miss.
Thank you once Acbagel and please take care.
Just have a shot of a damaged shuttle emerging from hyperspace towing Kylo in a standard TIE fighter.
Agreed, as long as he does the TIE, that’s the right choice. 😉

sorry about being rude but the project restarted also recreating something slightly modified is not a good way of recreating something IMO
NOTE mods if this is going too offtopic please remove this
So i take it this edit isn’t for you lol, maybe you should have read That Guys change list first. I honestly don’t get your post, if you have nothing nice or positive or even in your case not interested in this edit why comment at all.
I’m not attacking you or anything but don’t get why make such a comment when you can clearly see that others members are interested in what That Guy is doing.
I know people on here have been helping Hal out with this edit and initially I did vote for Vader’s Tie but at the end of the day this is Hal’s edit and I’m happy with whatever he chooses to put in, so I would just go with what you feel is the right choice Hal👍.
Hi again Octorox and once again thank you for sharing your PT edits with me. I watched this last night and really enjoyed, very much like your TPM edit I love what you have done by using Hal 9000’s TAS as your main source and elements of L8wrtr’s and trimming (Sanding😁) certain parts down.
I can’t honestly remember the last time I had watched AOTC with my full attention so some changes I may have missed but things I did notice and like we’re by trimming down Anakin and Obi1’s conversation in the elevator their relationship as master and student seem better, was glad to see jar jars lines removed along with Anakin’s akward interaction with Padame’ also makes their relationship a lot better. I was sceptical about the trimming of jango and Obi1’s fight but to be honest I very much liked it along with all the cuts with Anakin and Padame’ by toning things down it makes their relationship and love for each other more believable.
Thank you once again for sharing this edit with me, I honestly really enjoyed and am looking forward to watching your edit of ROTS (Hopefully tonight🤞).
Phew lol, glad you came back to it that guy😁
Hi Octorox, first just want to say thank you for sharing you PT edits with. I watched this edit last night and really enjoyed so thank you once again for sharing with me.
I know it’s based off of Hal, l8tr and the phantom editors edits of TPM which is obviously a very good starting point, I have always considered Hal’s PT to be the absaloutle best of the PT edits but with your edit you removed to 2 tiny nitpicks that I have lol and that’s the Pod Race Commentator during the Pod Race and during the final battle in space Anakin’s "How about spinning, that’s fun"🤦 (Apologies if Hal did remove this but think I’m right in thinking he left that line in). Anyways I really enjoyed and now onto AOTC😬 lol.
Thanks Octorox and please take care👍.
Looks awesome That Guy, good work👍
Maz’s ownership of the saber was something I was trying to figure out at some point, and thought it could work to have it be part of Rey’s vision in the previous scene. I abandoned the idea since I thought it would disrupt the scene too much, but here’s one way it could work:
Obviously just a mockup, but all the elements are there and I think it may actually add something. Leia’s ‘Bring him home’ could refer both to her later line regarding her son as well as instruction to Maz to find Han and bring him back to her, Maz being a trusted confidant of both parties. Or it could even refer to Luke, since Leia could have deputized Maz into the Luke quest at some point and thought giving her the saber would help somehow.
I really liked that inclusion Nev and it makes a lot of sense of how did Maz get it, it blends very well also👍.
Another change: “Despecializing” the scene of Vader walking through a dark corridor on the Death Star. In the Special Edition, they terribly attempted to fix it by tracking and hand-animating a 2D image of Vader’s face, chestplate, buttons, codpiece and leg armor in an attempt to make him more visible in the scene. This resulted in perspective errors in the mask and garbage mattes around certain areas of the armor.
I decided to just mask in the D+77 source through and fixed it to it’s original form. Although you cant see much of Vader, I feel it makes him more mysterious in the dark.
NOTE: I changed the edit title to “DSG Special Edition” to more elaborate that this is a SE/Adywan style edit, so sorry for the frequent name changes.
Wow looks awesome Dat’s, I had never noticed it before but wow that’s much better now👍
And only now just seen the new alderan explosion scene😳😮 amazing.
That guy with no name said:
NEW FINISHED SCENE!
Amazing work That Guy, looks beautiful 👌
The “Captain Hux” line sounds good Hal, good work guys👍
I always thought the same as G&G Fan regarding the praxis rings but after reading what Hal and Dat’s reason’s I see why. The rings should definitely be kept for the Death Star explosion 👍
I was considering forking out for the Mandalorian classic figures just to have on the shelf in my man cave but don’t know if I can justify the amount. It really is crazy, I would hate to be a kid in these times.
