What do you guys think of integrating this deleted scene (https://youtu.be/UzeIb-TZo_I) with the original fight in the TLJ?
I think for the average viewer it would be too long and confusing, maybe using quick flashes of the the saber’s history like Anakin screaming in the lava and younglings being killed, Luke’s temple burning ending with the island would be a more concrete illustration of why Rey fears taking up the weapon at the same time forshadowing the future.
So I’m probably going to stick with the original cut, unless I dub Snoke into a foreign Alien language and subtitle him. Kylo Ren/Ben knowing his language would be plausible, having been under his command for recent years.
If I should pursue either of these ideas, I would have to start work; tonight.
I want these two edits out the same day that Rise of Skywalker releases. They’ve been in the works for too long. I want people to experience these two films as much more original pieces to the Star Wars saga than what they were presented as.
I think the best thing to do is to either stick with the original or to find a voice actor with a spot on Snoke impression.
I’m not saying you do a bad voice impression of Snoke,I just think its noticeably different and it might be a little jarring for some.

- For this sequence; audio is not completely finished (cleaned up), and I want a better Rey to Kylo transition. I might also change the soundtrack.

Have in mind that none of these clips are fully completed, but very near.
- Luke has his original saber (green) during the Kylo confrontation.
- All the SW films have a saber duel, so I’ve borrowed Snoke’s Guard’s sequence with lightsabers. However, I might give them different colors (perhaps they all have purple instead of red, or two of them with purple and the rest red).
Oh its beautiful.
Agreed, I think faster and more intense is the way to go, maybe something akin to PTSD flashbacks.
That would be a game changer.
Although it would be painstaking It would be quite a feat to replace Alden with Harrison for Solo.
I agree that that might have been Rian Johnson’s intention but I disagree with the execution.
For me the goofy purple hair aesthetic looks more Hunger Games than Star Wars.
I’m not sure I follow that, how is it distracting/unfitting? I don’t think I’ve ever read anything about rebels having hair colours dependent on rank (if that’s what you mean, but I may be being naive).
Maybe its just personal preference but i think the purple hair looks a little goofy and maybe a bit childish for an admiral of the rebellion, I mean could you imagine how silly it would look on someone like Tarkin or Hux?
Are you still planning on releasing this around December with TROS.
I find that it’s quite distracting and perhaps unfitting for a woman of her status.
this looks fantastic.
I think the best thing to do for the moment is to make this into a 3 hour movie,cut out the filler and keep the juicy stuff.
Disney Plus is releasing today with all Star Wars films in HDR 4k, they are using the special editions for the original trilogy.
That actually works for me, cocky Han Solo throwback,ring theory,everything rhymes 😉
Sure, here it is:
That’s actually completed to my satisfaction, and hasn’t substantially changed since this update on page 26:
If it’s not too much trouble would you mind showing what the falcon chase scene looks like with the new washed out colours? That’s the first scene I thought of when I heard of the new colour correction.
Apply new color grading to the entire film in general, and a bright, washed-out ‘purgatory’ look for Jakku in particular.
Any progress on the purgatory look? Sounds interesting.
Would it be better if I were to replace the rocks behind Luke and have him fade in totally independent of the surroundings?
I’d like to see what that would look like but I honestly prefer letting the scene play out without fading in luke at the beginning like the previous iterations mainly because the blur-in makes it look like an illusion within a dream and maybe it would give away the fact that Rey is just generating a fantasised version of luke which I think should be kept for TLJ as a shock when the audience finds out that he is just an old hermit on a rock.
Concerning the final scenes, it becomes more and more clear that I need to show BB-8’s contribution to the map or else the Resistance looks that much worse for failing to search R2. So I’ve extended the TLJ musical cue to give the map scene more time to breathe. There are also a few small changes to the Luke dream I’m sure you’ll spot:
The music transitions are really top notch and the bright dream affect is superb, I personally wouldn’t blur luke at the beginning instead leaving it till the end of the dream so that it remains more subtle.
Love this, gives Kotor vibes.
