To symbolize her dark side struggle and to maintain TLJ continuity because the crystal broke
Can i get a link? Looks good
I also think a lot of the slo mo scenes can be trimmed as a lot of them go on way too long and get kind of annoying after a while. Definitely cut the Aquaman choir and the Wonder Woman arrow plot. Cutting the first Manhunter appearance might be good too. I don’t know if I would want any Whedon content in the movie on principle but some scenes might work. Cropping to fit the entire screen would be a good middle ground for aspect ratios too.
Now we just need to trim that awful wig and this scene will be perfect!
Quick Rey Nobody idea: Change Kylo’s “I pushed you because I needed you to see it… Who you are” to “What you are”
Luke’s fear line didn’t bother me that much, but I can see the reason for removing it. I wouldn’t mind removing it for a Rey palpatine version but I would probably keep it in to retain some Luke dialogue for a Rey nobody version since you’re already taking out a lot of Luke dialogue there. I think the interrupting is a pretty funny idea that works with Luke and Rey’s relationship as well.
I think version 4 is the best placement, but it does sound edited in as it is.
Unrelated, but would it be possible to make Leia the one that heals Ben? This would make Rey’s “will she turn to the darkside” arc more meaningful as she doesn’t immediately fix her mistake, makes her encounter with Luke more meaningful as she thinks she killed him, and makes her encounter with Ben on Exogol better as Rey realizes he’s alive. Don’t know how easy that would be to pull off though.
And cutting out Obi Wans little twirl he does
I think the explanation for the lack of third lesson is that Luke just never got to it. Rey left in anger to go save Kylo after Luke got pissed and destroyed the hut after he saw them hand touching. That’s why they deleted the Caretaker Village scene, to make Rey leave more abruptly after it seemed like her training was going well. So you could include it in TROS, but I don’t think it’s necessary.
True, removing lines like “My parents were strong” would help. I don’t know how possible it would be but making some new Kylo dialogue for the ForceLink fight/hangar scene to “reveal” that her parents left her because she was a Palpatine would be really great, then you’d probably have to remove their death scene. I don’t know how removing any of the parent stuff would work for a Rey Nobody version though.
I think Rey feeling unworthy of Luke’s saber plays well into her feeling like she’s not able to live up to Luke’s legend and being the last Jedi, which is a good character arc, especially with the added puppet scene.
That looks pretty good, the only thing I notice is the first establishing shot, it just looks like it’s bright and sunny and someone turned down the brightness.
Here’s the link:
I saw a trailer for AOTC from a 35mm copy that was super grainy and it actually looked great and made the CGI look 1000 times better. I think the prequels definitely need that. The sequels look pretty good already but some grain could look nice.
How did you get around the hangar reveal MR? That scene seemed like the toughest to pull off in my memory
Can I get a link? Looks great!
One of the changes I would want the most is replacing the Hayden ghost with one that isn’t as creepy. I would love Hayden’s ghost at the end to go with Hal’s TROS but he just looks so weird.
I think if this was in the actual movie there would be a close up of it cause it’s important to Rey’s arc and the audience is meant to see it, I think a quick one second shot might go by too fast.
Yeah I think if you do a star destroyer planet montage it would be nice to use the same planets as the end montage and give it some payoff.
What would be even cooler is if someone could make Rey’s saber on the TROS poster to look crackly like it does in Hal’s edit.
Also here’s a link to the TFA poster, I think it’s the same size as the one posted before though:
I think that would fit in great if the audio can be smoothed out, I like how mysterious it is considering we don’t know about the body transfer thing yet (I think)
Sounds cool, can I get a link?

Just had a disturbing thought: Do you think Maz Kanata was dying during TROS? She sure seemed rigid, like rigor mortis was setting in.
Wasn’t she a puppet as opposed to CGI in TROS? Don’t know why they decided to switch for the last movie
Made a small audio change with duel of the fates, right when the Droidekas appear there was a weird transition due to the lack of Anakin scenes that stuck out to me, just spliced in the actual track and it sounds a lot nicer. It’s pretty amazing that you cut so much and only like 3 audio cuts were noticeable.
I think Ben should vanish on Exogol revealing he was on Endor/Kef Bir and projecting himself the entire time
