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

She is immune to it apparently. Plus she has no REAL temptations to join the dark side at all. (The whole throne scene in TLJ with Kylo trying to persuade her to join had me roll my eyes. She JUST MET THIS GUY, had a “moment”, even though the day before he murdered his dad and is part of the space nazi army that has attacked her several times. That proposal was suppose to be tempting?)

Sigh Disney.

Sigh jarbear.

… I could talk about how did completely you missed the point of Rey’s arc in TLJ and how did you not paid attention to the movie at all.

But laying out opinions about the previous film and discussing it merits or shortcomings in a fanedit suggestion thread of a different film is unnecessary and derails the thread, there are countless threads for that already.

Not following something of the previous movie because in the opinion of someone “it doesn’t make sense” or “doesn’t work” is how we got the mess that was TROS in the first place.

The dialogue of @RogueLeader with her being tempted by the darkside, follows well her character and makes sense in the context of the previous movie.

So say we all.

I understood that Star Trek DS9 reference! /s

I think Rey’s struggle with the darkside works better with Rey being nobody, in that version, after learning that her parents dumped her in TLJ she develops the feeling that she isn’t wanted or worth of being with the others, that combined with the temptations of the darkside making her think that “she isn’t the Jedi, that she should be” brings her a myriad of anger issues and selfdoubt.

I find that more believable than “Maybe becomes bad because evil genes!”

The REY NOBODY cut

In regards to this, here’s a shameless promotion of one of my threads: 😉

https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/REY-NOBODY-The-Official-Fan-Editing-Thread/id/76772

For those who haven’t read that thread, this scene from RogueLeader is great

RogueLeader said:

This version of the hangar scene just has Kylo Ren confirm Rey’s fears about the vision she saw earlier in the film. Rey’s reaction to info she already has might seem a little dramatic, but in my mind, I interpret Rey’s reaction as her starting to feel that her future is fated and inescapable. But a part of her is still in denial, convincing herself that Kylo Ren is lying in order to manipulate her.

Here’s a rough test for their hangar interaction: https://vimeo.com/447063673

And here’s an alternate line read for Kylo near the end of the scene, keeping closer to the original line: https://vimeo.com/447069546

I think the impact is even better with the crowd reacting to “The day of victory is at hand”, like they realize there’s an evil scheme that’s approaching soon, which Poe comes to explain afterwards with “He’s been planning his revenge, his followers have been building something for years…” etc.

And like I said the extra line makes it feel more like they’ve been hearing to a longer message, since “the great error is corrected” doesn’t sound like the beginning of a phrase, now it feels like we hear the final words of a longer speech. The speech ends with Palpatine promising their victory approaches = the crowd gasps.

The extra line also gives more breathing room for the audience to understand what’s going on in the scene (a large crowd hearing to a recording of Palpatine), a first time viewer will probably “get it” after the establishing shot & the first line, alongside the gasps of the crowd. Where as the current version feels a bit “blink and you’ll miss it”.

  • Rey was nobody, she had no part in this story, except she’s Palpatine’s granddaughter and her parents were killed by an assassin Luke and Lando chased across the galaxy.

“Rey Palpatine” is such an unearned retcon that goes agains’t one of the most important twist of TLJ, and that hurts the trilogy so bad, maybe JJ didn’t like the twist of “They sold her for drinking money” as so many people did, but retconning in that way is embarrasing, he should have been a professional and follow the story he was given.

Is like if in Return of the Jedi this happened:

LUKE: Master Yoda… is Darth Vader my father?

YODA: Mmm… rest I need. Yes… rest.

LUKE: Yoda, I must know.

YODA: Right you are, but only an evil clone of your real father Anakin Skywalker he is.

LUKE: No way!

“Rey Palpatine” is not just a poorly written predictable copy of “I’m just father”, it also confirms that only people with “strong bloodlines” with high midichlorians count can do important things or are important in the order of the galaxy.

It also doesn’t work in a character level… Rey doesn’t even know or care about the guy! Luke saw vader killing his mentor and chasing/capturing his friends before the reveal, that is why so hard for him.

Why is Rey afraid of going to the darkside because his lineage in TROS? HER FUCKING FATHER WAS A CLONE/DIRECT SON OF SHEEV PALPATINE AND HE WAS A GOOD PERSON ACCORDING TO TROS, LUKE SKYWALKER WAS THE SON OF DARTH FUCKING VADER … UGH…

This movie is horrible.

I could include that scene without the added Solo music for you if you’d like.

I would a appreciate that, thanks : D (Sorry if i came out as annoying about the subject, appart from the movie as a whole that fight, luke´s wig and rey being a palpatine were the moments that pissed me of the most in theathers)

So I have some time before work… here is the reflection and just some general fixes. It was pretty easy to apply the effect to the helmet but let me know if it looks wonky.

I’m a little disappointed in how subttle Duel of The Fates was in the death star fight in workprint 4, is the final duel in star wars and the soundtrack is almost none existing and the little there is, is very subtles and forgettable 😕

I get the intent of focusing in the sounds of the duel and enviroment and being a silent duel, but i think it feels very lacking.

Why not try something like this ?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjMVwE-d4yU Rey V kylo, with Battle of Heroes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulIXYyPqFOg Rey V kylo, with Duel of fates

the reason that i don’t think that i could edit the audio myself once v1 realeases is that i’m afraid to lose the crackling sound of Rey lightsaber from the audio of ascendant

  • And, finally, when Kylo confronts Rey about being a Palpatine… I found myself still cringing at Kylo saying “You’re his granddaughter”, is there anyway to axe “You’re his granddaughter” and keep “You’re a Palpatine” and then have Kylo continue with “My mother was the daughter of Vader and your father was the son of the Emperor” instead of him blatantly saying “your his granddaughter”… it just sounds weird lol

There is no way to make that twist natural xD

Watched the new workprint:

-I think that the LUTs looks great (exegol looks neat) it just need a little adjusment.

-I hope god, jonh can fix luke’s hair… that wig is atrocious

I watched the movie 5 times already and i can’t take it seriously with that dumb, repetitive and shallow retcon of “Rey Palpatine”, really hoping for the “Nobody” version.

I saw everyone talking about making Rey’s lightsaber have a crackly blade. I’m a hobbyist, so not professional work but definitely a neat concept. Super early draft.

Edit: Also, if anyone is interested I found this picture of a planetary view of Ajan Kloss from BFII, added a letterbox to it… someone could add the Falcon to it or something, maybe when Finn, Poe and Chewie come back after Leia dies? Here is the link if needed.

Heres some random ideas I thought of.

Stormtrooper 1: “Weren’t those Snoke’s guards?”
Stormtrooper 2: “Not anymore”

Stormtrooper 1: “Snoke’s old guards”
Stormtrooper 2: “It’s been years”

Interested to hear anyone else’s ideas.

What is the point of making them snoke guards? in comics the have never been depicted like that, and they don’t hold any relationship with snoke guards in TLJ (they appear to be even weaker than those).
