Are you removing all countdown references of the weapon charging? If so, good to hear. It’s so eye rolling when 3P0 says “and their weapon will be fully charged in 10 minutes. It would take a miracle to save us now”.
How do you feel about removing Finn saying “yeah they do” after Han asks if there’s a trash compacter? It seems like he’s in on the joke by having that response and it’s not necessary. Also, trim Finn saying “why are you doing that?” when Han is nodding.
I really like what you’ve done with the ending. I’m wondering if it could be trimmed more and still be as effective.
After Rey is staring at R2 and BB8:
-Outdoor night shot
-R2 hooked up
-Island establishing shot
-R2 waking up
-Closeup of Luke turning around
-3P0 informing Leia about BB8
-Luke lifts hood
-R2 displays map
-Luke staring at camera while fading to white
-Leia says “Luke”…
Only seeing Luke from Rey’s point of view might make it feel more dreamlike. Rey arriving on the island and wandering around in TLJ will be something we wouldn’t have seen before.
This is just a thought and isn’t meant to take away from what you’ve already done. Great job and I look forward to seeing your final edit.
I’m waiting for a link too.
Just added some tweaks to the Luke and Yoda scene.
Added change list for the Crait Battle in the original post.
(PM me for link)
I’m leaning towards Luke handing the lightsaber back to Rey. Definitely want to make him seem less curmudgeonly. Next scene I’d like to tackle is the battle at the end.

I really appreciate what FXitinPost did but your version works much better within the style of the film. I’d love to see this added to Adywan’s Revisited.
Would also like a link please.
“The Bar Scene”
Remember to turn on subtitles!
How about adding some reverb to the music and more crowd noise?
Is your 2 in 1 edit available to watch anywhere?
I really enjoyed this version. Any chance of removing BB8 fixing the x-wing? Perhaps Poe doesn’t lose firing capabilities and just takes out all the cannons.
Can I get a link to your fanedit of TFA? I thought the Heir to the Force edit was pretty well done but it looks like you made even more interesting adjustments. Thanks!
