I definitely re-ordered some scenes. This is actually part of a much larger, and bolder, edit I’m working on for myself which most likely will not to be released as my editing skills are limited and not even close to those of others here. You will notice a few other scenes missing.
I know how much the Cantobight detour bothers others so I wanted to at least offer my thoughts and ideas on the topic. The goals of this particular sequence are as follows:
Eliminate Cantobight completely
Eliminate bad Maz Cameo
Eliminate need for a codebreaker
Shorten the way too long space chase thus shortening the movie
The fact that the rushed plan to hijack the Supremacy ultimately fails, I believe it allows us to move more quickly through these scenes. Again, this idea and attempt would not have been possible without the brilliant
poppasketti Rekindled edit.
The Plan (est 2 minutes)
Finn and Rose (minus Cantobight) (est 11 minutes)
This is the first attempt and I will probably fine tune it to the best of my ability, especially some of the audio transitions.
