The Force Awakens: The Starlight Project - (WIP) <strong>WORKPRINT RELEASED</strong>
Time

Maybe after the pain has been blunted by time…maybe. 😉

Anyway, on this project I’ve gone back to an earlier concept for the Starkiller Infiltration. The previous iterations all felt too choppy and stitched together, so I’ve consolidated the Mind Trick scenes back into one. The workprint version of the Kylo Falcon scene came after the X-wing attack, which felt strange because it pulled focus away from that action for too long. Besides, it was originally supposed to take place before the fighter attack. Here I’ve returned it to a previous spot after Rey avoids the guards. With the addition of extra dialogue and that establishing shot, I think it works a bit better.

Amazing, all of it.

Only think to nitpick is that the smash cut from Kylo inside the falcon to appearing outside the falcon feels a little abrupt.

Oh, and please tell me you’re cutting the scene in Ep1 when Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon use force speed to escape the Droidekas, which isn’t used again in Star Wars, and especially not used when Obi-Wan needs to move fast through the closing forcefields to get to Qui-Gon to save his life.

Correction: Luke uses it to escape the carbonation shaft in ESB.

Personal note: PLEASE DONT

<em>The Mandalorian</em> Discussion Thread - * <em><strong>SPOILERS</strong></em> *

I have a feeling the overall plot of this season will revolve around the search for Luke’s hidden jedi academy. The only possible place where the “sorcerer knights” could reside. I’d imagine Ashoka is searching for the same thing and so they team up, ending the season on Luke Skywalker’ amazing face 😉

Gad: Have you been keeping Rey’s secret from the beginning. Did you know about the parentage?

Ridley: No. At the beginning there was toying with an Obi-Wan connection. There were like different versions and then it really went to that she was no one.

What’s interesting to me is that there could be alternate cuts of TFA were Rey is explicitly Obi Wan’s granddaughter. I remember it being reported in the trades early on when they were shooting the film. There’s also the fact that Han and Leia seem to know who she is,with the information being deliberately hidden from the audiance. “Who’s the girl?”-cut.

Daisy Ridley on the evolution of Rey’s lineage

Gad: Have you been keeping Rey’s secret from the beginning. Did you know about the parentage?

Ridley: No. At the beginning there was toying with an Obi-Wan connection. There were like different versions and then it really went to that she was no one. Then it came to Episode IX and JJ pitched me the film and was like Palpatine’s granddaddy and I was like “Awesome!” Then 2 weeks later he was like “Oh we’re not sure.” So it kept changing. Even while we were filming I wasn’t sure what the answer was going to be.

Edit: This puts the line uttered by Kenobi in TFA into perspective, “Rey…these are your first steps”. It is likely that there were versions of TFA were Rey was explicitly related to Obiwan, and that this line is a remnant of that.

And yeah, it actually looks plausible now that the whole “You are a Palpatine” thing could have been recorded a few weeks before the release in Adam Driver’s closet…

Random, but I’m watching the workprint now.

With the removal of the light speed skipping, Poe says, “How thick do you think that ice wall is?” and then boom, instant light speed and the scene ends. Can we get a shot of his hand on the accelerator or an interior shot of them jumping to light speed or something? It feels way, way too rushed without showing them making the jump.

+1

Double that

Since Hal wants to maintain the majority of the reactions to after the message cuts off, I think the solution would be to include the scene from later where they decode the message but instead of the sith language being played you have “the work of generations is complete” cutting “the great error is corrected” and going straight to "the day of victory is at hand, the day of the sith.

I think the most important thing, in this case, is to convey the most with the least amount of words possible.

So… do people prefer Palpatine’s message here to what’s in the workprint? We get one additional line, but lose the impact of the concluding static immediately preceding the crowd gasping and clamoring. Personally, I prefer what’s currently in the workprint. https://vimeo.com/449495094

I think that if you are to overlay a Palpatine line over the characters reaction than you might as well include more of the message like in IIFaneditor’s version: https://vimeo.com/399876146
(which I’m totally a fan of!)

Yes, because it was from the film prior and is tied to that moment, whereas Burning Homestead is a callback to an analogous moment which itself is no longer anchored to a specific moment. Not saying it’s logical anyway.

Here, compare this to what’s in the workprint for the message moment: https://vimeo.com/449495094

Certainly an Improvement!
If you want you could try replacing “The great error is corrected” by “the work of generations is complete”, just because that line gives the most context. If you wanted to have both, You could move Chewie and Finn’s reaction shots up alongside Rey and Leia’s reaction.

Re-watching the message I don’t think the average viewer would get the impact of what was happening or who was saying it right away just from the two lines “day of revenge, day of the Sith”. I think it would be more obvious that it’s Palpatine and more impactful for the audiance and the trilogy as a hole if the first part “the work of generations is complete” and “the great error is corrected” were included. Only thing you’d have to do is play the extra lines over Rey and Leia’s reaction, which I think works better because that way the audience’s reaction bounces off the characters’ reactions to hearing his voice.
