One way I’ve noticed to condense movies is to have a narrator. So maybe having it be a story told by someone post TROS would work as long as the voice actor is good and the script is good
It’s all actually one planet and whenever they go into space their just making a loop
The bombs fell because the girl fell. Artificial gravity is within the bomber. She fell from the top of the bomber shaft to the bottom of it just like the bombs did. And once the bombs hit the vacuum of space there’s nothing to stop them from continuing their trajectory.
More fantasy/spiritual than sci-fi
My thoughts are its just a promotional photo. When we actually see him it’ll be in flashback form or with force ghost blue.
I think instead of intercutting the scenes at the very end when the ties are coming with Kylo then Rey then hux I would do them one after the other. The energy of the scene is just too frantic for what feels like it should be a scene of suspense.
In other words less cutting when the ties arrive
I would love to see a movie in Luke’s dream about his wife in the beginning of the TLJ novelization. Well, maybe like a 45 minute shirt. Like all of those tv episodes were characters wake up in a different world and it’s perfect and they’re trying to figure out what’s wrong and then at the end they have to accept the fact that this world isn’t real and he gets snapped back to reality when the Falcon breaks through the atmosphere
I really like the video they made which can be seen here: https://www.starwarsnewsnet.com/2019/05/vanity-fair-reveals-their-ultimate-preview-of-star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker.html
I understand it just comes with the territory, but how much of the sex and nudity did you keep in the edit? I’ve been looking for an edit of GoT that removes that stuff because of my personal affinities
I would love to get a hold of this
They could fit with a lot more modification and editing. Well. Specifically the fight doesn’t fit in the movie. It’s just way too different. I think your empower scene, maybe some more rogue one stuff. Possibly some way to add more tatooine. Or making it truly reimagined and not having Luke show up until the Death Star. That might not be a good idea, and would require a lot
Are you going to upload it to your website? Im interested in seeing it
Do you have a rough cut of this?
I like it in concept. Execution is good too. But I have no idea how you could make it feel more natural with royal guards or him exiting. What if instead of him going to Vader, vader has to go to a hologram room. It does seem weird that he would come get his subordinate
It’s cools though
That’s a huge problem with video game movies in general since the way the player views the character is slightly based on the players choices in gameplay or story development depending on the style of game.
This might be sacrilegious, but what about instead of an opening crawl, try to use prequel and spin-off footage to create a crawl in more of a “show don’t tell scenario”
Kinda like the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring
I LOVE LOVE LOVE so many of the ideas in this edit. I was watching it this morning and even though I enjoyed the original film and was very familiar with it, most of the edits were seamless. My only feedback would be:
- It is a little awkward to not know whats going on with the Resistance since we spend all of our time with Rey and Luke
- in the first throne room scene the Pretorian Guards ignite their vibro weapons, but if we’re doing lightsabers they should be ignited as lightsabers.
- Why not extend the first skype phone call with Rey and Kylo using the whole scene, but use HAL9000’s edit of that scene to take out the caretakers, that scene just abruptly ended.
- the lightsabers are kinda weird sometimes because throughout the various throne room scenes you see their blades, it might be too much to ask but erasing the blades would help to the lightsaber believability. RIght after snoke dies I can see that most of the blades were taken out so the the ignited lightsabers could take their place. And also we have no idea how the red curtain caught on fire (which isnt a HUGE deal)
- The cut from exploded ship to hux standing over kylo is actually really jarring since we know he wasn’t even close to there a second ago. Maybe just a short scene of the destroyed hanger but leave finn and rose out of any of the shots. Just a “heres the damage” shot would help
- I love the new color especially on crait
- Its implied that finn pulls away with the rest of the group but you can stil see his trail going straight for the canon. Maybe a small vfx change just having the red line curve
8)also the green lightsaber looks amazing
I wish there was someway to add somesort of story to intercut all the rey and luke stuff with. As the edit stands I really like it, but we leave the resistance for like and hour and then go back and their on transports, I dont know if there is anything you can do for that considering this edits purpose. All that aside though, as is, great edit dude
Just skimmed pretty much the whole thread and I’m very excited to watch this and burn it to blu Ray one day
Wow this is an incredible idea! I love it, I wish this was canon, it makes a ton of sense.
I never had thought about the fact of where the map came from I just kinda accepted it. But this makes everything logical in how Lukr could not want to be found and there still being a map to his whereabouts
Vader makes sense to me in the context of having the Empire’s fingers move into all areas of the galaxy and grasping for control. The Crimson Dawn would be the Emperor’s pawn in controlling the underworld through a puppet while he controls the more civilized world openly.
When Solo came out I had the same thought of it being Vader, having him control the underworld for the Emperor, maybe even doing it behind his back. But that way the post Order-66 era wouldn’t have two different opposing evil forces. You have the Galactic Empire who controls not only the government and the military, but has its own secret Jedi hunting force in the inquisitors under Vader, and then if Vader was in charge of Crimson Dawn they would secretly rule the underworld as well.
That really fits into the movie a whole lot better than the previous one. I wonder how your shortened version would look cut into the scene…
There are parts of it that just look bad, like all of the force powers, those would need to be fixed. Also my wife says it’s too fast, and in some places it is. It’s like so close to working
There’s a really cool fan film that does something like this with the mirror scene in TLJ where instead of seeing herself she sees Jaina Solo and they “talk”.
Imagine a scene where the team goes to the Death Star and sees flashes of their Eu counterparts. Rey sees Jaina and the struggles she had to go through of killing her brother.
An almost “this is what could have been, but the force interfered with the flow of time. Creating you, Rey. The entity was unable to stop Jacen from falling, yet his name did change.”
I don’t know it would be cool
Like how old TMNT crosses over with the one from 2003
Just had a thought that would be cool, which is slight old EU references in the film. Like it’s definitely not gonna happen at all but imagine if the big twist was a Star Wars dual universe situation where the big bad is actually Jacen Solo or something
Exactly how do people apply the artwork to the sets?
