I understand why it would be annoying to have 2 cackling blades, but the subtly of the first pass is nice
Boost for update?
Hey Hal, curious, when this project is over are you going to release the movie in a lossless format so we can edit on top of what we’ve done together?
Honestly, the first one is my favorite 😃
Imo, it’s more unbelievable that they WOULDN’T have backups of 3PO’s memories. He’s a droid. I’m sure everyone here maintains up-to-date backups of their computers and/or phones, so why would droids in Star Wars be treated any differently?
You assume too much
I’m for option B. Keeping as much of the dialogue as possible so there aren’t noticeable cuts
Honestly I think we should keep the stormtroopers line.
Every movie has “awkward Star Wars moments” and this one is no less an offender than the iron from TLJ or the Ugnauts playing keep away in ESB.
TPM had “are you an angel”
ATOC was pretty much the whole movie
ROTS had “your shorter than I expected”
RO had weird tentacle monster
Solo had the what are you saying exchange in the maelstrom
ANH had “pick up your visual scanning”
ROTJ had Jedi Rocks
TFA had dramatic “wrong fuses”
Wow that worked so much better than I thought it would!
With this line change I could imaging using the yellow lightning in Pasaana
On that last note we’ve also already seen Bespin
That shot of the Star Destroye exploding from Battlefront 2 could work really well in the background, someone would just have to replace the explosions to one that are more photo realistic.
The Naboo shot should linger a bit longer, could we slow down the pan speed?
JEDIT: wait? Is that just a still image with a Ken Burns effect?
I agree with octorox. I don’t think we should lose Jakku.
Personally, just because I think it is something Disney would do, I would love a host of a Star Destroyer over Galaxies Edge.
If I can day-dream for a moment. Imagine we all got dressed up and met at Disneyland or World and got a shot of us staring up at the sky, then added a star destroyer falling or something. Dream over…
Honestly, all I can think of when it comes to important planets is Naboo. It was integral to the Prequel trilogy and shouldn’t be too hard. Wasn’t there talk of seeing a Star Destroy explode over Kijimi?
First, I almost jumped out of my chair when I heard the “Look sharp” audio from Finn at the beginning. I know it’s soo small but the fact that I contributed in anyways made me so happy.
Second, in the workprint there is no audio for the steam during that scene, it makes the scene as is feel empty. Anyone else have thoughts on that?
I’m just happy this edit isn’t dead 😃
The Phantom Menace: A power greens smoothie, the nourishment is in there somewhere.
Attack of the Clones: A power greens smoothie… again
Revenge of the Sith: A power greens smoothie, now with fruit.
Rogue One: A homemade veggie burger
A New Hope: An actually good burger
The Empire Strikes Back: A power greens smoothie, it won’t go away.
Return of the Jedi: A steak burger with a great bun.
The Force Awakens: The same burger as before but somethings off.
The Last Jedi: The rest of the ground beef with whatever can be found in the kitchen.
The Rise of Skywalker: A power greens smoothie.
I can’t believe that I made on the list!
Honestly with Mustafar the Battlefront II footage would work without the Star Destroyer in the sky. If there was a way to paint that out it would work great, but with it, continuity gets broken with the other shots around it, since no destroyer is in the sky anywhere and no shadow is seen that would be there. Also the ground is a different color in the battlefront footage.
I don know… maybe its just me that can’t unsee it, but I also play Battlefront II like always.
funny thing (and please understand I say this in jest) remember when we laughed at other editors using Battlefront II footage? Granted they didn’t edit it at all and it looks terrible, and what has been done here looks way better and close to seamless.
Oh where this movie has brought us.
How about leaving the shot of the Forrest Moon and have the Falcon fly in an arc down to it, instead of doing a quick camera pan to a different moon?
Maybe a slight pan down to the forest moon and then the falcon roars by and arcs down to the moon? 😐
In regards to the Forrest Moon… Before it was pointed out I never noticed, but now I can’t unsee it and I’m upset. How dare you! 😉
This is definitely a nit-pick but in the transporter shot you can see the star destroyer in the sky and you don’t see it in any other shots in the atmosphere.

I love that shot of Kylo in space on the bridge, but it’s really awkward to see him in space and then the next time we see him he is slaughtering mushroom men. If only there was a shot (which I doubt there is) of kylo turning around on the bridge (like a "bring my shuttle) moment.
