Forgive my terrible memory, but why are all these Star Destroyers exploding over random planets? (I only saw TROS once, so I might be forgetting something).

I moved all of this victory montage after the Resistance victory scene on Ajan Kloss. That way it can be The Resistance and their new fleet aiding in taking down the First/Final Order.

That’s a great idea.

I know we’ve pretty much retired the Ajan Kloss = Naboo idea, but the more I think about it, Ajan Kloss we wouldn’t have to change the canon to make Ajan Kloss into a planet we’ve seen before: On Wookieepedia, there’s no official information as to where Luke’s Jedi Temple (from the flashbacks in TLJ) was located, and given that it was where Luke trained Leia it would make sense for Ajan Kloss to be that same planet.
Can anyone think of a way to make that clearer in the movie?

That’s a really good idea.
In the scene where Rey looks into the distance, I wonder if the temple could be rotoscoped into that shot somehow. It would kinda set up her training a new generation of Jedi down the line.

I think I might have found the perfect spot to sneak in Vader’s castle!

You can literally grab the silhouette of Vader’s castle from the deleted scene here:

And mask it into the the background of this shot here:

Oh yeah, and if anyone so inclined wishes to add a distant Vader’s castle to the reverse shot when Kylo picks up and looks at the Wayfinder, I won’t try to stop you.

One can mask this landscape into the background of that shot:

Showing that Kylo Ren’s slaughter happened below Vader’s Castle, perhaps even where Anakin fell at the hands of Obiwan.

“At last the work of generations is complete, the day of victory is at hand, the day of the sith.
Send the fleet to the galaxy…let it burn.
The Final order begins”
“Yes my lord”

I would say this might be best. (Might have to skip the “Fortnight” message part altogether.) But, the Pryde Palpatine scene would either become very short, or lost, though. I do like spelling out that the First Order is going there to man the ship, and that scene is the only real way in any version of the film to soundly imply that.

Since kijjimi doesn’t get blown up in your version the line “Send the a ship to a world they know” is gone by default. The only line you actually lose is “the final order begins” which isn’t really much and you don’t lose any info from the scene.

“The Princess of Alderaan has disrupted our plan, but her foolish act will be in vain. Come to me on Exogol, general Pryde”

“As I served you in the old war, I serve you know.”

“She will come, her friends will follow”
End Scene

This would work nicely as a pay off for the leaked message at the start of the film. Yes Hux was the First Order spy, but Pryde was a spy of another sort. Perhaps this could imply that Hux knew about Prydes allegiance and wanted to rat him out to Ren, while also revealing the Final Order. Two birds one stone.

Palpatine Message V2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tI4vmoK8VvA&feature=youtu.be

-Removed Roses frequency line
-added backround resistance sounds
-Removed Poe’s bandage

While it’s a nice mockup, I don’t think it solves the main issue with the scene, namely, “somehow papa-memes returned”. After all, the reason why the Fortnite thing is even being considered is to finesse around that whole ordeal.

I don’t think it’s necessary to show them “decoding” the message since it doesn’t really add anything to the next scene, on the contrary it kinda drags it out unnecessarily. I think the original idea just flows better from an editing perspective, what’s the message? Answer: You hear the message. It just feels more dramatic to hear Palpatine’s leaked discussion along with the rest of the resistance for the first time.

I like it! The clip we have to work with has a hologram or radio filter on it, so that may make it less than ideal to modify.

In that clip, after Palpatine says “the work of generation is complete” there’s a few seconds with just the hologram filter and no dialogue. This could be looped over whatever modification you want to make 😉

Edit: Here’s the source for the sound affect used:

That’s such a good idea. It demonstrates to the audience that Boolio was executed as a consequence of leaking Palpatine’s discussion with the first Order. Alerting the resistance to his existence and risking the secrecy of The Final Order operation. This gets rid of a huge problem in TROS, that Palpatine announced his plans to the entire galaxy before even executing them. As if he announced that Order 66 was going to happen prior to all the pieces being in place.

It also shows that the high command are perhaps trying to hide their allgience to Palpatine because they shut off the transmission just as Kylo arrives.

If someone wants to give it a shot, here’s how to create the new dialogue
Send the fleet to the galaxy, let it burn”

-“Send”

*Palpatine and Pryde: “Send a ship to a world they know”

-“The”
*Palpatine and Pryde - “The Princess of Alderaan has disrupted…”

-“fleet”
*Palpatine in Kylo’s head - “do not make me turn my fleet against you”

-“to”
*Palps and Pryde - “Send a ship to a world they know”

-“the galaxy”
*Kylo and palpatine - “you will rule all the galaxy

And if some wants to replicate the new dialogue from my mockup here’s how:

idir_hh said:

I’m out of the editing game for a while cuz of ma computer but if anyone is interested here’s how I made Palpatine’s new lines.
Skywalker is dead!
The Republic, Destroyed

Skywalker” - Return of the Jedi - The Emperor’s arrival. “You have done well lord Vader, and now I sense you wish to continue your search for young Skywalker

Is” - Rise of skywalker - Rey and Palpatine. “Luke Skywalker was saved by his father, the only family you have here is me”

Dead” - Rise of Skywalker - Sith Sacrifice. “And with a stroke of her saber, the Sith are reborn. The Jedi are dead!”.

The Republic” - Revenge of the Sith - Palpatine creates the Empire.“In order to insure the security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganised in to the first galactic empire”.

“, Destroyed” - Return of the Jedi - Palpatine zapping Luke with lightning. “If you will not be turned, then you will be destroyed” .
😉

Adding Palpatine’s theme over the dialogue would help cover any audio issues or original unwanted background music that may arise.

Oh I agree. Personally I’m leaning more towards IIFaneditor’s concept, except I would change the dialogue so that it goes like this.

“what’s the message?”

-holographic/transmission sound-

“At last the work of generations is complete, the day of victory is at hand, the day of the sith.
Send the fleet to the galaxy…let it burn.
The Final order begins”
“Yes my lord”

All that transpired regarding the rise and fall of the repulic is addressed as the work of generations. Same reaction shots, more context to the story. Spy plot is teased. Best of ALL, no half arsed introduction from Poe.
A few birds with one stone, if you ask me.
