OLD BEN: An Obi-Wan Kenobi Fan Edit [ON HOLD]
Time

I would’ve like to have seen more of the inquisitors just being badasses. Reva is an important antagonist but I think the “less is more approach” might be the way to go. Having her be a more silent and mysterious hunter would make her feel more threatening. No need for her to explain her motivations early on. I’m really curious to see how you handle Vader if and when you get around to it.

If you have any more general ideas for an edit, there is a more general redux thread for the show. I’m still just trying to break the first act of my personal edit here lol. Not that I don’t appreciate anyone trying to help, but I do have more specific goals than being everyone’s else’s wishlist. I do read that thread and if any of those ideas appeal to me, I’ll reference it here as I fold them in

Agreed. Most of us are here because of the unique approach you’ve taken. The comments should focus on what you’ve released and avoid directing you where to go. It’s your vision after all.

When Reva throws the knife, she looks around and sees Nari holding his hand up to force stop the knife. Seems like he could have just let it drop instead of holding it in place for so long. I cut those two scenes to avoid it dragging out and to make Reva’s response more prompt. Also removed Nari saying "You’re wasting your time, you know that, right?” mostly because the delivery is so bad.

Love the tone you’re going with NFBisms. I agree with RogueLeaders comments above. Ben leaving Tatooine and having the vision of Leia right after felt off. Some time needs to pass between the two events if it’s not going to be the motivation for him leaving in the first place. Also had the same thought when the Jedi was hanging. In the previous scene it appears that Reva is going to strike him down. Just showing the feet dangling would imply that what isn’t shown is very gruesome.

Excellent work so far and I’m excited to see how this progresses.

The end is near! Final cut has been reviewed. All that is left is the rendering… and maybe a trailer.

How’s the rendering coming along? 😃

You know how it is with editing. I was about to render and then found something else I wasn’t happy with 😂. I’m just tidying up the opening shot then I’m good to go.

Yes! It’s easy to obsess over every frame. Fortunately, you can always put out an updated version with any future tweaks.

Edits are never finished, they’re just abandoned!

Haha, so true.

Here’s a version of the logo made to match the Disney+ movie logos, thoughts?

Need to fix “Vergence”, but that looks great!

Damn it. I’m terrible at spelling, and slightly dyslexic. 🤦🏻‍♂️

If that isn’t just embarrassing as can be.

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.

Yes!!!

I’m listening on headphones so it might be amplified but the two little notes that fade with the hyperspace sound are what’s bugging me. It’s obviously not a big deal but if you’re able to fade them out more it might help. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate what you’ve done here. Really looking forward to seeing the final version.

Here’s a mashup:

Following the death of EMPEROR PALPATINE at the Battle of Endor, the NEW REPUBLIC has restored peace to the core systems, but a power vacuum has plunged the outer rim into chaos.

IMPERIAL REMNANTS have formed in the shadows. They have taken control of distant worlds as they search for a mysterious asset that could return them to power.

Commissioned by THE GUILD, bounty hunters are only given tracking beacons and the age of the target. With the promise of a vast reward, a lone MANDALORIAN approaches the last known location…

The colors look great on the downloaded version. This is coming together nicely.

Are the stormtroopers still going to say “Knights of Ren… Ghouls” or are you planning on making them silent and just look at each other? Seems like half of us thought they were saying “cool”.

How does everyone feel about trimming the flying trooper that deflates when shot? It feels like a cartoon and might as well show Wylie Coyote chasing after the Roadrunner. Here are a few variations I put together to reduce the silliness.

  • And, finally, when Kylo confronts Rey about being a Palpatine… I found myself still cringing at Kylo saying “You’re his granddaughter”, is there anyway to axe “You’re his granddaughter” and keep “You’re a Palpatine” and then have Kylo continue with “My mother was the daughter of Vader and your father was the son of the Emperor” instead of him blatantly saying “your his granddaughter”… it just sounds weird lol

It is a little cringeworthy much like when he said “grandfather” in TFA.
