I would recommend the following changes:

  • After Hux says, “We have them tied on the end of a string,” cut to Kylo entering the throne room and Snoke saying “Tied on a string indeed.”

  • Move the deleted scene of Luke mourning Han’s death to right after he says, “Where’s Han”

  • Cut the Tie Fighters shooting the bridge and Leia blasting into space and flying back

  • Cut Finn and Rose’s subplot and Poe and Holdo’s subplot

  • Reinstate the caretaker scenes and Luke’s third lesson

  • Replace Holdo with Admiral Ackbar in the hyperspace Kamikaze attack (borrowing shots from Ivan Ortega)

  • Re-edit Finn’s sacrifice so that an AT-AT shoots down Rose, Finn tries to sacrifice himself, then an AT-AT shoots him down.

wow those changes sound awful

Well, I don’t plan to remove Phasma or the fight between her and Finn, so there’s nothing to worry about there.

The Luke Jakku quip is something I’ve hemmed and hawed over but I think it’s just not something that we would have seen in the OT, but that we have seen in the ST. So I’d prefer to keep Luke away from it since he doesn’t do it much. The reed gag later on seems more consequential and part of the point being made, so it feels different to me.

Whatever happens, I’ll get a solid workprint out before IX for anyone interested in having it for a countdown viewing.

😉 I will make sure to show V3 to my cousin that has never seen star wars but wants to watch all of it before IX

I’m excited, all those new changes for V3 Sound amazing except for:

-Removing phasma: i liked that sequence , phasma and that fight is just eye candy similar to darth maul or boba fett, i like the score that plays during that fight, the length of the film is ok, the only thing that made me check my watch , watching the movie was the fathier in the original, without it the film is ok and one thing that i liked about this fan edit was how little it change , was basically the same movie but improved, taking that fight out would change that 😛 .

-Removing Jakku being nowhere: i liked that joke/interaction with luke and rey, the more luke jokes about rey the better the movie is xD besides that, it fits with the theme of Rey = nobody

But putting that aside i’m looking foward for the V3 😄

Appart from finn if this was the version in theaters i think people would have been less ofended by the film, despise it’s glaring issues i loved the movie since day and made me fall in love in star wars again, this version only needs rose giving finn the lecture in the casino before them being caught, and it would be perfect.

Thanks hal9000 your fan edits always are fun to watch, I watched this and it was almost perfect (i loved TLJ when it came out ) but… finn arc doesn’t make sense, if i watched this version in the teathers i would have thought , how finn become from "this is not my fight i only care about rey " and making an attempt to escape, to sacrificing himself to save the resistance, i don’t like canto bight but without him watching the effects of the war (the childs and the animals being torture) he doesn’t get a motivation to fight alongside the resistance (him not wanting to become like dj after his betray helps, but i don’t think that is enough) , in everything else this version is superior to original is just finn’s arc in this one that prevents it to becoming my to go version.
