You wanted feedback so here it is.

Like every fan edit, we can debate the details here and here but overall your work show great respect to the source material, reinforcing the strength of the sequels while eliminating the rough edges. I certainly will recommend your edit for star wars fans who have a hard time enjoying the sequels but want to watch them anyway for whatever reason.

If i have to point one thing, i would move the some time later before Kylo go to Mustafar get the way finder. I understand what you went for but his face scar almost healed and his conversation with the First Order generals are two elements that make the time jump more logical in its original place IMO.

But it is not that important, i enjoy this a lot as a pretty big fan of the sequels ( even with their shortcomings.) Good job and thank you.

Thank you for the feedback! I understand where the critique regarding the time skip is coming from, for sure. I am considering removing the title card entirely and allowing the viewer to fill in whatever timing gaps the intuit to be right. I’ll have a play around with it at some point. Glad you enjoyed overall, though!

Not late at all! I’ve been working on this pretty consistently since January, it’s feeling like the current version is as final as it’s going to get. Will send you a PM!

Great work!

Not particularly related, but I’ve always found the sound of the Porg in the film to be far inferior to the one used in the trailer:

It’s just something about the way the Porg sustains that scream that feels incredibly forced in the film, for whatever reason.

Thanks!

Oh yeah, the one in the trailer even fits the animation better weirdly. I get wanting to make it more of a “war(g) cry” but they definitely could have gone with another couple iterations for it.

If I might make a suggestion, could you add a wipe in the “Journey to Exegol” clip, more specifically between the lightspeed shot and Kylo overseeing Vader’s mask? I feel as though a simple cut seems a bit jarring. :v

Thanks for this! I did play around with a lot of different kinds and speeds of wipes on this cut, but ultimately stuck with this. I think what I might try and do is extend the hyperspace shot out but just a few frames. The issue with a wipe is that it implies the passage of time, whereas I want this whole sequence (the Resistance leaving Crait/Kylo being led to Exegol) to be relatively contemporaneous in the context of the film.

I’ve been casually looking at your preview videos.
An observation about the Holdo’s sacrifice clip - Hux makes the trip from the bridge to Snoke’s throne room very quickly, especially on a ship that has just been sliced and diced by a Mon Calimari Ginsu Cruiser.
I know you’re trying to tighten up three movies into one edit but that watches like a speed bump to me (I feel the same way about C3P0 in TESB, in one shot he’s in the command center on Hoth and then literally in the next scene he’s in the hangar telling R2 to be careful).

I’ve never noticed that in ESB! I imagine it was due to those wampa scenes being criminally cut from the film…

I get what you’re saying, though. In the theatrical he also gets from the docking bay up to the bridge fairly quickly, too. I feel like it’s ambiguous enough as to how much time has passed since the shipwreck when we cut back to the bridge, as Rey managed to wake up, leave, steal a ship and get away already. Appreciate the feedback!

I use Final Cut Pro which I Definitely, Absolutely Legally Paid For.

I’d kill to have Palpatine stuff be added (specifically that part you added in bbghost) into Hal9000’s cut of TFA

I have thought about getting around to doing my own standalone cuts of the sequels separate from my 3-in-1 edit, and things like that would definitely be added. I’ll let you know if that comes about!

Has anyone tried putting Palpatine chuckling or something during the looming shot of Vader’s helmet in TFA?

(If you come across this, Sparky, I don’t think this, specifically, would ruin TLJ’s hope message, as it could be interpreted as Palps’ spirit inhabiting Vader’s helmet until TRoS when Palps talks about the voices.)

Have mentioned it before in other threads but my sequel edit does some things to obliquely link Palpatine, Kylo and Vader’s helmet from the outset:
Kylo’s vision in TFA: https://vimeo.com/549080534
Palpatine summoning Kylo to Exegol: https://vimeo.com/554625583

I really never had a problem with Hux being made a farce of, or “they fly now” (yes it’s corny, but that’s Star Wars, right?)

It wasn’t until I found this forum that I realized so many people HATE that “They fly now” joke. I will never understand it. lol.

I think the fact that it was in the first clip they released from the film didn’t help! People were kinda set to hate this thing regardless, and the joke became a bit of a pre-emptive flashpoint for that.

Because the Empire, Republic, and CIS have all had jettroopers and it would be weird if the FO didn’t.

Well, the audience doesn’t necessarily know that as it was never depicted in the mainline Skywalker films, and certainly not the sequel trilogy. Also, none of the characters save Chewie and the droids lived through any of those wars, and C-3PO had his memory wiped after ROtS.

I do get where you’re coming from! But I think sometimes the moment has to come first, even at the expense of those of us who’ve spent their lives reading Wookiepedia.
