Can I also get a link?
I have no expertise in this area but could you maybe loop the footage once the ghosts are in focus so that the shot could be extended?
Although I guess if you were to extend the shot by even just 2 seconds it would throw the music off.
Jon’s force ghosts made it to reddit! A little upsetting he’s not getting more credit but it was a nice surprise to see his edit pop up on my feed.

And I probably won’t get down to the level of splicing takes together. There’ll only be a few lines used and they’re fine for what they are. And it’s fun to include the results of that project.
Are you going to add the KOR voices to the cast list in the credits 😛
I don’t think the intention was to use all of them. I believe Hal said he was going to just use a few. Personally, I think the best ones are Pasaana, Kijimi, and the pause in fighting on Exegol.
Either one is fine to me. Heck you could use voice clips of Papa Palpatine from Robot Chicken and I’d be satisfied. Anything works as long as it’s not “Somehow, Palpatine returned.” I hate that line so much 😛

New work print has an extra DOTF after Rey jumps, it seems very out of place in-terms of timing.
Also camera movement feels very missing from Naboo shot,
Anyone else think so about the DOTF moment? I thought it was a good way to just gently bridge to the existing score. It could be knocked off, though, if I’m the odd one out.
The more DOTF, the better 😛
I like it personally, though it was a bit jarring at first. But I think that’s because I’ve watched previous versions of the scene so many times 😄
I didn’t know you had reached a consensus on the “Somehow, Palpatine returned” line. The result is a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one 😛
Moving the scene of Poe and Finn meeting Boolio to after Rey’s training sequence didn’t really work for me. The energy of these scenes is very different. I think keeping all the scenes on Ajan Kloss back to back will allow the movie to stop jumping around and slow down a bit.
Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the point in this change was that the opening scene ends with Palpatine talking about Rey, so it makes sense to jump to Rey next. Then the Ajan Kloss training sequence ends with Leia and Rey being informed that the Falcon hasn’t reported in yet, so the next cut is to the Falcon.
Personally, I think it actually helps to slow down the pacing with this edit instead of leaving it the way it was before.
I liked the removal of the “Only this blade will tell” scene on (now) Endor, however, the scenes of Rey retrieving the dagger on Ren’s ship are sort of useless now.
The blade is sort of whispering to Rey throughout this sequence, implying that she can hear the voices of the Sith through the blade and that it’s directing her where to go.
The worst thing about the sequel titles is that they all start with “The.” I don’t know why JJ didn’t just make it “Rise of Skywalker.”
I don’t know if you guys were still thinking about removing the “Knights of Ren” line when they’re passing the two stormtroopers, but now you officially can’t, because it’s Karl Urban’s voice 😛
Are you talking about the music that fades in when Rey turns to look at Luke and Leia? Honestly, I had no idea that wasn’t the original music. It sounds totally fine to me, but maybe I’m just not observant enough ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
What happened with Jonh? i haven’t seen a post of him for a while, did he stop working on luke’s hair?
Lol I literally just asked that yesterday. He’s back to working full time now.
I wish we could get Palpatine to say “Nothing will stop the REVENGE OF THE SITH” instead of saying return,
that would be a serious “Hux realizes that he lost the star wars” moment
You say that like it’s a bad thing 😛
On the topic of Ascendant, has anyone heard from jonh lately? He hasn’t posted in a while.
Wait, did I miss something? Is Leia’s saber being made cracklin’ too? Why?
Just to add my two cents, I think the return of the most powerful Sith Lord is a high enough stake to not need more planet destroying weapons.
I don’t think the point was that the teleporting healed the lightsaber. It’s that Ben turning back to the light and taking up his grandfather’s saber healed the crystal.
IMO, if there’s an audio/visual cue when Ben shrugs at the Knights of Ren, and the saber stabilizes at that point, it would work fine.
I like the idea of having the blade “heal” when it’s passed to Ben
My only problem with this whole crackly saber thing is that it might be kinda weird if no one in the movie acknowledges that the saber is behaving differently than normal. It’s definitely a cool idea that I would like to see implemented. Just something to consider.
Personally I’d rather C3PO’s memories not be restored at all. Someone posted a mock-up a ways back and it definitely needed some work but showed promise.
Imo, it’s more unbelievable that they WOULDN’T have backups of 3PO’s memories. He’s a droid. I’m sure everyone here maintains up-to-date backups of their computers and/or phones, so why would droids in Star Wars be treated any differently?

Anyone have any ideas for dialogue for the troopers speaking with 3PO? The 3PO line is currently “Excuse me, sir, might you direct us to—-“
Need two brief lines, neither in direct 3PO’s unfinished question.
Maybe omething from Fallen Order could work?
(Exasperated) “I’m never gonna get promoted…”
(Annoyed) “What, you want a medal?”
(Exasperated) “I knew I should’ve joined the Brood…”
(Impatient) “Go talk to the quartermaster droid!”
(Angry) “Stop it! It’s getting on my nerves!”
I like the idea of inserting the crew portrait shot of the heroes in the Falcon. But I think that should be it. The scene doesn’t need to go on any longer than that, in my opinion, so I’d leave out any extra shots and/or dialogue.
Is there any way of explaining that Palpatine is a clone? Movie on first viewing and without JJ’s later given context suggests he just survived all this time.
This edit replaces the tank full of Snoke clones with a tank full of Palpatine clones. I’d say that’s a pretty strong implication.
Anyway, I’d love to get a look at the entire cut if possible. Can someone dm me a link?
Hello there! I got you.
