Sorry if this is a bit off-topic but I know a few others here were interested. I’ve worked for awhile on continuing to add the final TROS trailer’s music into the movie:

https://vimeo.com/459982104

It’s still a bit rough when the music goes in and out since I can’t find a way to gradually increase or decrease it, so I have to cut the ends into numerous quarter-second chunks that quickly increase or decrease in volume, leaving the audio somewhat clippy/chunky.

However, the music placement and transitions are improved and I made custom sound effects to replace the original rocks crumbling and explosions (I had to keep the blaster fire for a second though which sounds slightly odd with a pinch of the original music peaking through… I might just cut this part out). I’ll still try to improve it anyway I can but this is good enough for me now to add as audio on my own into the final edit when it’s complete 😃

its feel super off, doesn’t really match the rest of Williams’ TROS score, especially considering he didn’t do the trailer music

Okay, so here’s this. We can certainly give Poe a line or two from video games or whatever, and add a few more hollers from people sending in audio.

Y’know, things like “let’s give 'em hell!” and “ASS!”

I still think that kid shouting “we believe in you Poe” is too loud, lol.

ouch lmao

I gave a go at doing sound for the shot, only issue is the shot isn’t in the best quality ever but it should be serviceable. also I’m pretty new to sound stuff, i did it in mind that there would be more radio chatter on top of it

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EIIUPBtBVwgtNvsb3JAnaPsChVNY_dAf/view?usp=sharing

I dunno how to remove the watermark either lol.

Sounds good to me, too! I can’t tell for the moment, but is it in surround? Could you perhaps export it with ONLY the added sound effects (no music)? If it’s only stereo, I may need separate tracks for some of the sounds to be able to pan as ships fly into frame from behind.

Honestly, I couldn’t figure out how to mix in 5.1 so I just tested it out with 6 different audio tracks with one all the way right, one half way to the right, etc etc; However, I’ve just figured it out lol, so ill redo it and get it done soonish.

(edit: i actually don’t really understand it lol. should i just send every track as a separate audio file? the shot where I’ve edited it from takes place right after poe’s “hit those underbelly cannons blah blah blah”

If you can just send me six audio tracks and let me know which is which that’d be amazing. If you would just include the video stream as well, the entire unbroken shot, that’d be helpful as well. I’ll do my best to assemble it and see if there’ll be room for a few more “woo”s from you all. And then whenever the watermark can be removed we’ll hopefully be all set.

Just left home but I’ll do it later on if thats all good

Absolutely nothing in the movie implies Palpatine’s son is a clone. I’d say the fact he doesn’t look like him should count as precluding it.

That’s a good find, but we’d probably need more audio to go with it for the ships flying by. Worth a shot, for sure! And we could include a few more people’s audio submissions. Anyone able to remove that watermark?

My only issue with the music right after “I am all the Jedi” is that once that music bit Ends it just repeats slightly slower. It is such recognizable music that it’s impossible to miss

okay, I know this is the most unimportant thing in the world, but no one yet has noticed that the music is straight-up lifted from luke’s death in TLJ.

(edit: sorry I was playing catch up, didn’t realise someone else said exactly the same thing lol)

poppasketti mocked it up once, and it just feels 100% correct, not just for a fan-edit, but for the movie. It’s also a really strong opening shot across the bow so far as the first cut in a fan-edit goes.

https://originaltrilogy.com/post/id/1346491

its really good, butit doesn’t help or serve any good to the film to open there. shatters the already fragile pacing.

Hal, have you considered having Luke speak to Ben during the Mustafar Opening or when he is repairing his mask? Maybe just a quick line like “Ben”, but something just to be consistent with Luke’s last words in TLJ of “see you around kid”.

Remember Rise of Skywalker is the true sequel of The Force Awakens, so it doesn’t really care either happened in the last movie. 😉

🤦‍♂

<em>REY NOBODY</em> - The 'Official' Fan-Editing Thread

I still like the idea of Rey representing a “vergence in the Force” like Anakin was. It gives Kylo something impactful to say in the hangar scene (although you’d need to create new dialogue wholecloth) and keeps her from being actually related to anybody.

Something like this:

Rey: Why did the Emperor come for me? Why did he want to kill a child? Tell me.
Ren: Because he saw what you would become. You don’t just have power. You’re a vergence in the Force Rey. The most powerful nexus of Force energy since my grandfather. I didn’t want to accept it, but it’s the truth.

For years, I’ve been chasing his power, and all this time it’s been right in front of me. In you. Palpatine fears your power, Rey. We’ll kill him, together, and take the throne.

EDIT: I spent a few hours re-sorting the LEGO Star Wars voiceover lines by character instead of level. This should make relevant lines easier to find: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1x9jVm0p8GydqtH1Vvl0SHtfbuIfkUzJV?usp=sharing

i could maybe do the line, people like my kylo impression

That was great! Yeah, the “world they know” thing, I was just throwing out ideas to move people away from the Fortnite broadcast by suggesting something a little less (hopefully, imo) ridiculous.

Maybe Palpatine’s line could be:

“The Final Order begins. Send the ships.”

Unless that’s too vague, or his cadence is too unnatural.

maybe something like “the day of revenge, the day of the sith, the final order begins” could be neat?

I think if the “Somehow, Palpatine has returned” bit is going to be replaced with the group listening to something, a big fancy broadcast isn’t the way to go. Instead, we should hear Palpatine speaking with Pryde, distorted enough to sound like a secret recording but clear enough to recognize their voices. This places emphasis on the spy subplot and foreshadows both that someone high-ranking is the spy, as well as that Pryde’s loyalty lies with the Emperor and not the Supreme Leader. It also potentially works as a red herring. If we hear Richard Grant speaking in the spy message and then later see him as a new character in the First Order meeting, he and Hux eyeing each other suspiciously from across the table, then an observant audience member will likely come to one of two assumptions: either Hux is the spy (now foreshadowed instead of a random twist), or Pryde is (a red herring, making Hux’s reveal and death a bigger twist).

Edit: if we want to split Palpatine and Pryde’s conversation from later in the movie, and do a bit of sentence-mixing, we could do it like this:

Spy recording on Ajan Kloss:
Palpatine: “Send the ships to a world they know. Let it burn. The Final Order begins.”
Pryde: “Yes, my lord.”

This gives context to Poe’s line, “He calls it the Final Order. In 16 hours, attacks on all free worlds begin.”

Then in the meeting after Leia’s death:
Palpatine: “The princess of Alderaan has disrupted my plan, but her foolish act will be in vain. Come to me on Exegol, General Pryde.”
Pryde: “As I served you in the old wars, I serve you now.”
Palpatine: “She will come. Her friends will follow.”
Pryde: “Yes, my lord.”

This is the same “Yes, my lord” used twice, but it’s far enough apart and appropriate enough for the situation that I bet a casual audience member wouldn’t notice.

I did a super rough mock up of what this could theoretically look like… I don’t think anyone else did this lol, but I just quickly went through the pages. I’m sure Hal would make it sound much better than what I could do, but I think that, done right, it could work well.

its decent, i just have no idea what “send the ships to a world they know” is supposed to mean in that context

That plays pretty well. However, it borrows shots from later in the scene and it may not work to lose them.

the only borrowed shot in there is the wide of rose and Finn, other than that there’s none

Knight of Kalee said:

I don’t know if this would fit better in the the Radical redux thread, but I like it a lot! It might be the most plausible way to both address the intel and remove the cringy “Somehow Palpatine returned”.
Maybe there should be a short reaction shot added before Rose speaks, because her facial reactions don’t quite match, and the characters would need a couple more seconds to process it. Maybe insert Chewie’s reaction in there?
Though I agree with Hal, I’d like to see how the rest of the scene plays out.

a shot of chewie shot could work, thanks!!
