Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

My first reaction to Mike’s time-travel prediction was “Ha, yeah right!”. Then after hearing him list the deflector shield, Palpatine’s laugh, the medal, Luke’s destroyed lightsaber… it wasn’t that funny anymore. Also his other theory about Palpy possessing Kylo gave me a headache. But overall, I’m currently in a pretty good spot with the story because it can only get better from here… or well, it could always crash and burn in flames… but that’s unlikely.

EDIT: The deflector shield and the lightsaber are things which can be reforged easily.
I forgot the lightsaber was only split in half, not blown to smithereens.

The Last Jedi- Full Movie Re-Edit

I really don’t know which one is worse… the edit itself or the comment section in the announcement video. I am just glad this project is finally over and I wasn’t even surprised that it turned out to be a turd in the end. The Patreon supporters must be overflowing with joy. But yeah, this edit was initially directed towards the ultimate TLJ haters so… good for those who can find some solace through this professional film editor’s version… I guess?

Yeah, this was a cool piece of work and everything… but the comments section is just too much as always.

“Wow… this reignited my love for Star Wars!”
“OMG, this is better than everything Disney does!”
“They should make a new Special Edition just to add this!”

The colossal amount of stupidity, argh… it’s making my face hurt, please make it stop!

Yes, the 012319 version is currently the latest. Every file should have a date in the filename. If you have an older encode, that would likely be the reason for there to be slight variance in file sizes… but not sure how that would happen if you only downloaded it once!

Thanks buddy! If I had a brain, I could’ve just sorted them by date and see which one was the newest. 😄

If you don’t mind me asking, have you had any new ideas or changes in mind to warrant a new version? In my opinion the edit is overall truly fantastic, but I’m still kinda shipping for that Hux-Poe convo to return to its Legendary state. The “skinny, pasty guy” part still makes “oof!” even when I try to tell myself that it’s tolerable, haha!

The Mandalorian - Star Wars Live action TV series
Time

I just watched a couple of interviews with Gina Carano and I gotta say… I’m so excited for her. She is radiating with such an honest, grateful vibe (also damn gorgeous!). She admitted that she’s a total newbie when it comes to all the lore etc, but she was enthusiastic to absorb all the information Filoni and Favreau provided her. I know she hasn’t been the best actress around (she’s an ex-fighter after all) but if you need a female who you can believe to kick some ass, Gina Carano is the one to hire. Hopefully this will be her best performance so far.

<em>Star Wars: The Clone Wars</em> To Return With New Episodes
Time

I’ve never been that interested in TCW or Rebels, but I could easily imagine myself jumping in if there were movie edits of the shows. Does anyone know if there’s someone in our midst who is / has been juggling with this kind of an idea? A story arc in a single movie or two with all the filler cut out? To me, that would probably be the most enjoyable way of watching (or just look up all the filler episodes and skip them).

Your thoughts on the Episode IX title - <strong>'The Rise Of Skywalker'</strong> - a NON-SPOILER thread
Time

Shopping Maul said:

Okay, here’s my theory. There’s a big showdown in the guts of the Death Star, all the Force Ghosts are present, everyone’s about to be blown up or something, and then Kylo has a big change of heart and self-sacrifices so that his beloved Rey (and co.) can escape. As he does so Palpasnoke is screaming “no, you are Master of the Knights of Ren!” and Kylo - just a Leia’s theme/Force theme mash-up swells - says “I am a Skywalker, like my mother before me!” before going kaboom.

If this happens, I’ll never love again.

Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

When the Knights of Ren were mentioned the first time, I always expected them to be like mini-bosses in each film. Then have the classic final boss fight vs. Kylo in Episode IX. But that’s just too generic, I know. I’ve played too many video games, haha!

I’m just amazed that they have had only one appearance so far (in a Force vision, of all things). Now that I know Palpy is back, I don’t know if I really care about the Knights anymore. I think I would’ve liked seeing Rey take on the Knights + Kylo in the final act rather than Darth Sidious playing mind tricks throughout.

By the way, what are your guys’ thoughts on the theories of Palpatine just being a mere front for Plagueis all along? Or Palpatine being Plagueis himself / resurrected über vers. 2.0?

<em><strong>Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order</strong></em> (Video Game)

Kyle Katarn saga, Knights of the Old Republic, The Force Unleashed… hopefully I can add this one on the list as well. The Second Sister Inquisitor + Purge trooper designs looked cool, always nice to see new versions. Upgradeable lightsaber and buddy droid, awesome! I guess now it’s time to cross my fingers and hope for minimal EA interference on rest of the development.

I can’t imagine that one rumored title “leak” to be true that IX would be called Will of the Force. That would just make the memesters’ day because then it would be called Star Wars: WTF? from there on out. Personally, I hope it’s something new and unique without “of the” preposition.

Further trimming Paige Tico (bomber girl) kicking the ladder to drop the detonator.
I know that you shorted this slightly, but to be honest, I still find it longer than it needs to be. I keep screaming at my TV, “Just get up and go grab the damn thing!” Two kicks or so is fine, but right now, it is still too long, I think. ForceGhostRecon’s “Clean Cut Version” does a pretty good job of fixing this.

Changing BB-8’s repair of Poe’s X-Wing
I’ll be honest, I always thought this scene was too silly. BB-8 starts popping new fingers into every socket on the board, only to use his whole head which magically fixes the problem. It was just too slapstick for me. The best fix I’ve seen of this is one that I’m almost afraid to mention because of some controversy regarding the faneditor creating it. Regardless, the actual change itself [watch it here] is really great and is one I’d love to see happen someday.

100% agree on these!

Remove this thread, and all that will be left is what he’s said about OT in his livestream. We ought to have our side of the story told?

Yes, I can understand this point of view as well. I just thought that it would be much simpler to wash our hands from it all, have no mention of the project anywhere on this site. Only because this thread is like the 2nd/3rd result (for me at least) on Google when you look for the project, in case the Mouse gets interested. But yeah, we definitely still have every right to talk about it and voice our opinions.

If we really want to distance ourselves from this particular edit… the thread should be removed by mods or at least lock it down (in my opinion) because it pops up easily on Google searches. The editor in question doesn’t even visit this site anymore (Last activity 14-Jun-2018) so there’s really nothing to gain by continuing discussion about any constructive feedback or his unconventional practices.

The Worst Scene/Sequence in Any Star Wars Film
Time

I was humming Imperial March while making breakfast this morning and thought about watching DigMod’s Rogue One edit later today. Then I realized that there has been at least one introduced species / moment in almost every Star Wars movie that just didn’t work on me.

The prequels had Binks, the whole Gungan experience, droid factory etc, ROTJ had Ewoks, TFA had Rathtars, Rogue One had Bor Gullet, TLJ had Porgs + Space Leia and Solo had L3 + Han speaking Shyriiwook and getting his last name from an Imperial officer. Luckily most of these “problems” have been solved by some amazing fan edits.

I am also very interested in seeing this because of the editor in question and the amount of L3 cuts.

If I may ask, was there ever a thought to do something about Han speaking Shyriiwook (or is that even possible)? Personally I could definitely live without ever hearing that part again, haha. But the amount of L3 cuts in the list really brings me joy.

For those who didn’t like Phasma, they probably won’t care and probably just be happy that she is gone. And if she does show up, then it still works because she could’ve just gotten extremely wounded by all the destruction in the hangar.

If / when we see her again, I bet she will start with:

“FN-2187! I remember what you did to me in Episode VIII!” 😄
