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 😄

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.

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.

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!”

IMO, I think if you leave out the transports landing, but go straight to the interior shot of the stormtroopers disembarking and then charging into battle, it looks good. I also think muting the Battlefront footage would help, if you were to keep it in.

Strongly agree here. Not that I’m a big fan of the Battlefront stuff, but the landing is the worst part due to the odd speed and camera angle, and there shouldn’t be any voices when they leave so that it flows a bit better into Kylo’s reveal.

I threw together a SUPER rough cut in the default Windows editor of how this would look.
