While we’re discussing the Force Ghosts scene, I want to ask since this soundtrack addition absolutely makes me feel like a hyped little kid; Hal, what do you think of the following from the redux ideas thread?

a quick test

The music feels very “epic trailer” to me, and feels out of place within the movie itself. It gave me chills too! But it felt like a trailer video.

Plan A to try at some point is what was originally scored for Rey catching the saber in TFA.

Although I like music, I must say that I agree with you … it seems more trailer music

Would have been sick to have Palpatine hiding in the sith shrine deep below the temple instead of Exogol, right under the noses of the New Republic and The First Order. Imagine the surprise of the destroyers emerging from deep below the surface of the industrial regions of the capital. A true power play.

Judging from this concept art this may have been the case in an early draft.

My only problem with using Jedi temple shots TOO unchanged is that it’s important to remember that the Jedi Temple was remodeled into the Imperial Palace, so it’s probably looking at least a WEE bit more sinister these days, at least on the inside.

sorry! that where it appears? I’m not following the expanded universe or legends😅

In Lucasfilm Canon, it’s mostly appeared in a bunch of (very good) comics and novels. Here’s a picture:
https://www.artstation.com/artwork/DQqz0

The exterior structure is mostly the same, save for some lovely banners. The interior appears have had at least some degree of structural change, however, at least based on what we see of the throne room and the Emperor’s vault.

Here’s the throne room, as illustrated in the comic adaption of the first of the new Thrawn books- looks pretty similar to his throne room on the Death Star:
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/3/36/Emperors_throne_room_Imperial_Palace.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20180220134421

However, looking over the various related comics, it looks as though most of the actual interior structures have remained intact, they’ve just been stripped of their Jedi symbolism and statues and the like, and instead replaced with imperial symbolism and statuaries and all that.

This isn’t directly relevant (I just like talking about lore), but it’s kind of implied that Palaptine chose to turn the temple into the Imperial Palace because the Jedi temple was, eons ago, built atop a Sith shrine. During an ancient war with the Sith, the Sith built a shrine in that location and, through heinous bloodshed and general Sith-ery, created a nexus of Dark Side power. The Jedi Temple was built on that location to cap and contain that dark power, in order to prevent it from directly corrupting the rest of Coruscant.

I’m sure that, at the very least, most of the Imperial symbols and relics would have been stripped away by 35 ABY, which is roughly when the ST takes place.

uhhh interesting! I did not know, I did not know it! I’m just a mega fan of movies hahaha, I’ll have to start with the EU 😃

Jonh, you just let us know when you have it where you are once again happy with how it all looks. It’s a gem, so polish it to your heart’s content. 😃

If I’m very lucky I can totally finish up with everything ROTJ for the time being and then have sporadic time to implement the things that have stockpiled for TROS.

Ok hal !!
Part 1 is OK OK …
I will make a small improvement in part 2, I will upload it soon 😃

GREAT ! remember I recently uploaded a version with a little improvement

jonh what was the change you made? Maybe I can just isolate that part on an update.

I made a little change of almost all the shots … so better if you replace them all! I made changes to Anakin’s hair, and changed the noise from other shots 😃

barely noticeable! but I am more satisfied with this version hhahah

While narratively it wouldn’t make a difference whether he finds the mcguffin on Coruscant or Mustafar it’s still worth experimenting for the difference pacing and austhetic.

Yes! the only difference is that it could be a calm sequence, instead of fighting images

apart from a great tribute to the prequels…

we could try it hahahh

a calm sequence, with calm music

, then the millenium, and then exegol

I think the first shot, would be one of the most difficult, would require a star destroyer 3d model

3d models don’t really look that convincing, It would be easier to pan down to a wide shot of the destroyer(could be rotoscoped from TFA or TLJ) with Coruscant just under it’s frame, Shot of Kylo on the bridge from TLJ, and then you can have Kylo’s Tie leave the destroyer from below.

Instead of the old republic shot, I’d suggest using this one but you might have to get rid of the smoke.

I like! The sequence is a lot of work, but I like it, it would be a sequence to breathe calmly

My main issue with the film is that the story is never allowed to breathe, characters don’t have time to reflect, Rey doesn’t even acknowledge that she’s a Palpatine. Kylo’s redemption and death are merely skimmed over. It’s just run run run.

true !, there is no time to rest

EDIT: Could you give me the link of your edit with kylo in coruscant? I’m going to do a story board

God with each of these videos my hate for this film grows. The pacing of this film drives me nuts!

Hopefully with the success of the Snyder Cut movement Disney may look into releasing an extended cut.

🤣🤣🤣
calm idir_hh! We’ll fix it…💪💪💪

I don’t think an extended cut fixes the movie, it’s just a bad movie

edit: I’m still thinking about your opening with coruscant … I think it could be very good

Slight update (same link):
https://vimeo.com/420155526
pw: fanedit

I did actually bump the scale up a little bit. The model was about 1100 pixels high when it should have been about 1300. I didn’t scale it all the way up, though, because it didn’t pass the eye test for me, and like Nev said, it could just have landed a little farther away. (I can bump it back down if this doesn’t feel right, though).

jarbear said:

The next trick I think is the lighting for the shuttle. I think the shuttle’s lightest light is a little too white or “bright.”

You have a good eye, jarbear! However, I wasn’t trying to match the lighting of the X-wing, I tried to match the lighting of the original Tie Fighter. Both the Tie and the shuttle have very sharp vertical wings which reflected super white in the original shot. I think it’s also because of the angle, where the X-wing is completely backlit from the lightning, creating a different effect.

why are you so brilliant? hahahah great job! 😃

the bad thing is that as we do to introduce the palpatine scream and the sound effects!

any wizard of sound?

Here are a few examples of effectively (imo) added sfx and trailer music for reference https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gBXjXvu9bJ9TCdx9R8SNxYK6ESl8TLWT/view?usp=sharing

I like this, though with the Rey/Kylo fight I can’t help but think it should be more Duel of the Fates, whereas with the Palpatine scene it’s a shame how much it’s cut down. Maybe if there’s a way to keep jonh’s full extended scene as well as the trailer music and the sfx?

forceghostrecon will send me the sound effects, I will do a test
