I feel like you should cut Vader giving Kylo instructions, since Vader has just been defeated, as if Kylo is purging the influence of Vader over him, it doesn’t make sense for him to then obey Vaders command.

And here is the more “sympathetic” version of Kylo and Luke:
This version hints more at his eventual turn to the light, mostly due to the fact both of his comebacks to Luke are delivered more like delusions he doesn’t even want to believe himself at this point.
This delivery is much better! Should Luke have a bit of reverb? Like Ben Kenobi on Hoth? Having a bit of reverb might help key in subconsciously that he is actually speaking as a ghost?

I’m now satisfied with the lines for the Kylo and Luke scene. It just needs the sounds originally from the scene, minus the original music.
Everything is great and nearly made cry except for the last line
“I chose power” seemed a bit off…
I would love a chance to see this. I’m always a fan of radical edits
I think in the context of the surrounding scenes, the way finder makes more sense. Especially since she then goes and tells Leia about it.
Because DoomCock says so
Just spitballing here, but the biggest issue with Luke’s death is that it feels a bit random. Like, he could just as easily have lived, so it’s unclear what purpose his death serves.
So what if Luke saw his own death when he confronted Ben, a death he knew would take place on this island? This is hinted at when he says to Rey ‘I came to this island to die’. However, in that context it sounds like he has just given up and figures that this would be as good a place as any to spend the rest of his days, instead of accepting the truth of a vision that is put in motion when he fails to kill Ben.
Perhaps he says something in the Jedi Tree:
“I will never train another generation of Jedi. I came to this island to die…that is my destiny. It is time for the Jedi…to end.”
Just a bit to emphasize that he has seen his own future and believes it to be unchangeable. Therefore when he dies it is in fulfillment of his own vision, but interpreted in a hopeful way that he couldn’t have foreseen.
Dude!! That’s so good!
Any words on part 2?
Really enjoying the conciseness of the story in your edit of part 1
Can V1.1 be found in the usual drive?
Looking forward to this! Your Kenobi edit was near perfect
I would love a pm!
I’d love a chance to watch 😃
Does it follow the FOTJ storyline!! Does Luke seek out Abeloth? How does it fit into the Legacy Comics? Who did they cast as Jaina Solo??
I’d love a chnace to veiw this! I never thought about bringing Leia’s death forward, but that sounds like such a great improvment
That’s really cool!! I didn’t even know such a site existed!
To echo the other comment, I think the edit itself is nearly perfect. Ever cut made makes sense to me, if not exactly my personal preference. I would have kept more of Alderran, in the beginning, to give us more time with Leia. Other than that though, I liked it very much.
The FX could use some work. For the bacta scene, maybe we could reuse footage from RO instead of the new scene, it’s just very out of place.
For the Ties, if the camera isn’t locked on that one Tie Fighter like a Video Game the shot would work better. (Smoother pan)
The holocron at the beginning looked great until Obi-Wan popped up, I don’t think you need the visual to get the point across.
Don’t let these nit-piks diminish the amazing work you did though. This a great edit, and maybe V2 or V3 will be my preferred watch of Kenobi in the future.
Watching it now!
I am one of those people cleaning up the book 😃
You could keep the murder, but change the reason as to why Cassian was there. Instead of being there to find his sister, maybe he’s trying to sell the starpath unit?
I really liked what you did with the probe droid. It feel more imperial than the originL
You can upload the pictures to another site, like imgur, and then embed them in your posts.
Have you thought about editing Practice makes Perfect into the order 66 episode of clone wars? With flashbacks intercut until the moment?
Could I get a link to your drive?
I’m really looking forward to this! I’ve seen a ton of movie cuts and they’ve all seemed alright, but this is the first one that actually is getting me excited.
That trailer was really well done too!
