The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)
Time

I like the idea of adding a shot of stormtroopers in the hangar beforehand so we have a bit more time. Then the Trooper could say “Who are you, droid” or “What is your operating number” and we could still fit “It appears”. Does anyone have a little clip I could slot in there?

And yes, I will be supplying raw audio, not finalized clips, so it can be laid in wherever anyone wants.

After the interrupted execution scene…

Stormtrooper: “What are you doing down here?”

C-3PO: “I am a highly-trained Resistance spy.”

Stormtrooper: “Then why ar- wait, what?”

[PEW!]

Okay, here’s a stab at this. I don’t think there’s enough screen time to fit in a “What are you doing down here?” But I could try speeding up the 3PO clip.

(Note: I just muted the movie audio when they talk, so it’s just isolated dialogue right now)

Sorry, I meant in aurebesh.

Besides graffiti, I didn’t think to much extra would be necessary. You can already hear blaster shots and stuff in the distance I believe, during certain points of the Kijimi sequence. I think adding more sounds of distant blaster fire, explosions, even battle cries, could help keep that in the audiences mind. It looks like the stormtroopers are raiding houses, so you could even have something like a distant First Order announcement saying anyone harboring insurgents will be punished, or something like that.

If this clip gets created with more battle noises and the graffiti/posters added, I will absolutely add some yells to the background

Well, it took 3 hours and still needs a ton of work, but here’s a mockup of what my idea would look like:

This is absurdly fantastic. I LOVE this idea so much!! As a cold open, does that mean that you have this, and then hard cut to the Star Wars title and crawl? Because that would be an incredible way to kick this off

And that clip works well, Sherlock! Because it’s so tight, a hilarious 3PO line might actually drown out the rest of the scene. “Is everyday like this for you people” might work best.

If we end up with a clean(ed) line about being a “highly trained resistance spy,” maybe it could replace the lines when he’s chatting with a stormtrooper on the star destroyer.

Oh man, if he said that on the star destroyer, and the Stormtrooper was just like, “Wait…what?” before immediately being shot, that would be hilarious! (Although…would his knowledge of the Resistance have been erased in the memory wipe? Hmm…)

Does anyone have this clip with the dialogue removed? I’d like to do some Stormtrooper voice audio tests.

When D’Arcy is updating the crew about what has happened, after she says all their leadership except for Leia is gone, the crew moans and groans a little. During this time, we could add a new voice line or two from random crew members asking questions like:

“How did they find us?”
“There must be a spy!”
“What are we going to do?”

I’d happily do one of these, but for it to feel like chatter, we’d probably want three unique voices. Is this something that’s really wanted? If so I can put it together.

RogueLeader said:

You could make it just voices, or maybe a vision like he has in TROS when he touches the helmet, since he says “show me”. But basically, the vision would revolve around three lines he hears.

Palpatine: If the Jedi are not all destroyed, it will be civil war without end.

Vader: Bring order to the galaxy.

Snoke: And fulfill your destiny!

This is fantastic. If someone gets me the isolated dialogue, I can put some effects on them to fit the vision vibe

<em>REY NOBODY</em> - The 'Official' Fan-Editing Thread

If her parents are still the deadbeats from TLJ, then Palpy’s line about “Weak…like your parents,” actually hits really hard; because we know that her parents were weak. Rey silently staring at Palpatine in response, without being about to refute his point, actually creates a gigantic character beat for her

BIG agree. This is a great improvement. And I agree about removing Ochi killing her parents, anything that portrays them as important to the story detracts from the “Rey Nobody” idea.

This is an image from when Palp has red lightning. Question is, should the Saber reflection be purple, and should the force ghosts still be blue or would the redness of their sky drown out the colour?

The ghosts being red is weird visually. Personally (and who knows if this is even an option) I would re-color all of the Exegol footage, and then check in with Jonh if he’s still got his original project files from adding the ghosts. Instead of re-coloring around them, if he could swap in the alt-colored-Exegol in his project with the blue ghosts still on top of it, that would be great.

Yeah, really don’t like any of this trailer music, lol. It’s way too bombastic and “This is awesome because they are winning now!!! Feel excited about what is happening!!!” when that’s not really appropriate. Really takes me out of the movie. It’s trailer music for a reason.

Yup, it removes any and all tension from the scene. The music is so absolutely triumphant while Rey is still struggling, it’s telegraphing how easily she’s about to defeat Palpy.

That’s really cool! Great work, you nailed the timing. I love that trailer soundtrack and plan on using it in my edit for when Palpatine is disintegrated and all of the Sith Eternal / Final Order destruction begins- it feels so much more climatic to me than ANOTHER unfitting misuse of the Force theme, and it’s just a beautiful piece of music that I think deserves to be included.

I have a rough mockup here but I’m very inexperienced in editing so it’s a bit rough, my main issue was trying to blend the cut-off and the original audio right after General Pryde dies.

https://vimeo.com/459982104

I’m planning on trying to learn more and refine it, but I’d love to see someone else take a shot at trying this

I could see this working in the movie actually. That triumphant music cue really is made of pure dopamine, isn’t it?

Yeah, we went through a bunch of colours but landed on magenta that just wouldn’t look right. Someone also made the Rey meditation jungle scene purple that looked pretty cool but looked a bit avatar-ish.

I’m not sure it needs changing?

I just wish we didn’t get three new desert planets in the Disney movies, you know? Between Jedha, Jakku, and Pasaana, it seems like they could have given one of them blue or teal or orange or purple sand, or something.

Something that bugs the hell out of me, and I’d love to see removed in a fanedit, is the ring of little spikes that pop up on Rey’s yellow lightsaber at the very end of the movie. I was watching this scene earlier and it occurred to me how incredibly easy it would be to remove them, by taking a small rectangle of footage directly above them and duplicating it over them (I made a mockup from a still frame, but I’m not sure how to upload it in here).

Is it only me that hates those little spikes? To me, they turn a perfectly fine lightsaber design into something from 2012 DeviantArt. Hell, if it doesn’t bother anyone else nearly as much as it bothers me, and if someone can send me the bit of footage and tell me what to do with my export settings (Premiere Pro CS6 for Mac), I’ll even do it myself.

Are you talking about the triangular vent/flap things on top? They don’t bother me from a visuals/design standpoint, I’m more confused by how they seem to be entering the beam of the saber without being destroyed.

Final version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hW352M6uMS0&feature=youtu.be

I have a new updated edit/version with the new track,
Recut the whole track to fit the scenes pacing better, it also keeps the original in there, its about 50 seconds now and has a lot more emphasis on Duel Of The Fates, repeats twice but smoothly transitions together. I don’t think Hal is interested in updating the origianl version, but always good to get feedback.

I absolutely love this.
