This dude added Admiral Ackbar to TLJ and makes Holdo actually seem competent.

There is a snippet of it in the BTS footage:

“You’re used to getting away with an awful lot, huh? Because people like you? That I-can-take-'em-all-on-myself gleam in your eye. That’s dangerous, and the last thing we need right now.”

I would really like to see the alternate version of those scenes and actually see how “spaced out” she really was. I wonder exactly why that didn’t work in the edit. Did her quirks make it seem ridiculous that she would be in charge? Was it just too weird?

Rian said it was too much, too strong. I just wish this was something that was detected and dealt with on the page in a draft as opposed to in the edit/reshoots. I do think LD’s performance suffers from it in a way that’s hard to put your finger on. There’s also some really obvious ADR(especially with headphones).

I think the problem from a character perspective is that she does nothing to reassure anyone that she knows what she’s doing, creating growing animosity that leads to a mutiny.

One problem with Holdo is that a lot of her original dialogue didn’t work in the edit and had to be redone with ADR and limited reshoots. The result is a Laura Dern performance of one version of Holdo replaced with different dialogue in a lot of scenes, and to me it’s a factor in why it sometimes feels off. Originally Holdo was more “spaced out and hippy dippy” in Rian’s words, and was supposed to be more overtly flirtatious with Poe.

I’ve been waiting to see if someone would make a nice LUT to use for a brighter color grade, but beyond that I just wanted to trim stuff here and there to cut about 15 minutes to get the runtime down to 2 hours in order to make it a bit “faster”, and “more intense”.

There’s a nice color grade that came out recently, on r/fanedits. I have seen it a few times, and it’s a big improvement.

The Last Jedi : Fan Edit Ideas - ** <strong>SPOILERS INSIDE</strong> **

That’s what I was thinking as well. The shots of the gun getting banged around are not something that would make it inoperable.

Another continuity error are the small islands behind the Falcon’s landing pad, which is a departure from TFA:

Maybe these islands could be painted out? The Falcon is practical in TLJ and CGI in TFA, so you can see a few differences in the body, but that doesn’t bother me as much.

I’m also planning to fix Leia and Poe’s conversations in the transport on the way to Crait by mirroring the scenes horizontally. Leia is sitting at the rear window of the transport and it would be pointed straight at the Supremacy, flying away from the Raddus and Crait, in the opposite direction of the other transports. Since the scenes are short, the mirroring isn’t too distracting and once you realize how the ship should be oriented it’s hard for me to see it any other way.
