I think I found someone who can help us out with Luke’s new line, “Leia told me that she had sensed the birth of her son at the end of her Jedi path.”

Okay, this is actually huge. I know that there had been a lot of talk before about making new Kylo lines, but chopping them up yielded less-than-convincing results. If someone taps this person to make new Adam Driver lines, I will happily make a Kylo mask effect for them. Great find!

This was pretty much exactly how I pictured the scene in my mind too! I was actually using my “Force Hunting” mockup as a way of testing building up a battle soundscape. If you’d like, I could send over some of the sound effects I gathered for it - it’s a lot of audio from the different Battlefront games, mainly.

Yes please! Send whatever you’ve got, that’d be very helpful!

I don’t have a 5.1 setup, can anyone tell me if the Stormtrooper voices in this scene are just in the center channel or if they’re all over? Wondering how difficult it would be to remove them.

My intense (but might not work out) idea for this scene was too add a whole new soundscape. I really want to have a scene that shows civil unrest under FO rule, so it’s not quite as out-of-nowhere when the wind Galaxy rises up at the end of the movie.

I wad thinking of making it sound like a riot is going on farther back in the city, with these troopers split between trying to keep everyone else detained in their homes, and marching towards an area they’re being deployed to. Any graffiti would be great to show that Kijimi is a protest hotspot, but could anyone here add flashes of laser fire to the establishing shot as the Trio’s ship flies in?

There are already a good amount of noises in the scene, I’d mainly add voices and distant blaster fire. It should sound like they landed far away from the action.

Honestly I really don’t know if this will work, but I’d like to give it a shot first, and then if it’s a non-starter we can try simply replacing trooper dialogue instead. Does this sound like a good idea to anyone?

The graffiti messages should be in Aurebesh, right?

Yeah. Maybe the hypothetical “Skywalker Lives” text could come accompanied of the jacked Luke from the original SW poster to drive the point home.

The Rebel crest could also be thrown in (to allude to the Resistance already having allies across the galaxy), and we could draw inspiration from the official Star Wars propaganda artbook.

These are great ideas. You’re right, it should probably one be one Aurebesh line, like Skywalker Lives, and mostly pictures. The Rebel crest done up like a tag is a great idea.

Is anyone taking on RL’s ideas? I think they’re pretty awesome.

I remember someone offering to design the graffiti art but did this happen? I could try to camera-track a wall and add it to a scene or two.

I’m assuming Alex would be the one talent to add the additional voices etc?

When they were first talked about, I offered to do the audio if the visuals are done, so yeah I’ll definitely add voices if this happens! I just only know how to do audio, so I can’t really help with any of the designs or edits.

i think the whispers could work really well, but to me, they shouldn’t appear just in the end, they could be there in Exegol since the first Kylo enters the temple, like the ghostly voices of the past sith lurking in that darkside madness, they could be really suttle in the beggining, appearing here and there, and getting stronger closer to the end, taking a bigger leap when Palps regenerates.

Yup, this is the plan.

oviniboy said:

Also, i don’t think the echo in Palpatine voice works, it’s just too much.

I agree, but I’m gonna keep trying different effects on it to hopefully get something that works. If it doesn’t, no big deal.

Personally speaking, I do like the idea of having the Sith Whispers being in this final confrontation as being a last temptation sort of thing (even though it doesn’t really make sense in a 1:1 interpretation since Palp’s is trying to kill her at this point but whatever).

However, I’m really not a fan of the echo voice for Palpatine. It just seems really hokey to me (although you have done excellent work with it, Axlanian!)

Yeah, I’m still playing with the Palpatine voice thing. Right now I’m trying to just pitch his actual voice down to get something closer to his voice in Episode III after the Mace Windu confrontation. I feel like there’s something to this idea, but I’ll post a different version this weekend. But in my head, it’s less of a “last temptation” (I’m doing that too though, with Sith whispers on Exegol while Palpatine’s still trying to get her to kill him) and more like the disembodied Sith are all piling on her to try to break her at the most crucial moment.

No idea where they’re intended to go, but honestly those ‘sith whispers’ are very out of place during that moment really pulls you out of the climatic moment with Rey and Palpatine.

If it’s strictly Palpatine vs. Rey, then yeah I agree. I’m working on emphasizing the “I am all the Sith” idea throughout the movie, with Palpatine’s current body literally containing the spirits of the Sith that came before him. If this is included, it wouldn’t come out of nowhere, it would be built up throughout the movie whenever Palpatine speaks.

I’d be down for this. It kind of sounds like the Sith Whispers already, but just a little more explicit. The added whispers could also be really cool when Rey is wandering around Exegol, as they guide her to Palpatine…

Sherlock, did you hear my Sith voices test for the climax? I’d be totally down to make a sound pack of clips like this (not the Palpatine voice doubling, I’m still trying to make that work) so they could be added wherever you want.

Currently been cleaning up the Lando audio from the Star Tours ride however; theres a kid speaking over part of the message, unfortunately all the youtube recordings of the ride have crowd cheers with the exception of the one I have found.

So, I have a pretty janky solution for this: put some crackle or interference over when the kid speaks like Lando’s transmission is going out slightly.

Okay, I want to try this now. But does anyone have an idea of what footage to put the transmission into?

And for a Ben final line…

Oh! Or what if he calls out to her right before she sees him and gives him the lightsaber? (“Rey…”) Not super deep, perhaps; but conceptually, I think it would flow well.

I feel like this is the one that would work best. Though I’m sure someone could easily find some Sad Adam Driver Noises in Marriage Story if they wanted to add that to the bit where they take turns dying.
