I think Hal is justified in wanting to regrade the movie. It has the same problem as Attack of the Clones, where the entire movie has an odd blue-green tint. It is the way it was shown in theaters, but when you look at behind the scenes material the colors are much more natural.

That is true, I just imagine that this would be a hard process.

However, this would be a case of changing the film’s original look, whereas in the past you’ve tried to restore the original look.

The Original Trilogy had the problem with the poor color timing on the 2004 DVD and 2011 Blu-ray releases, The Phantom Menace had a strange pink tint in its 2001 DVD release, and was fixed in the Blu-ray release, but had a lot of DVNR issues with its picture. Attack of the Clones had an odd green tint applied to its Blu-ray release, and the rest didn’t have any problems whatsoever.

This color grading attempt for The Rise of Skywalker seems to be in line with how people complained and graded Solo since it had a dark muddy look to it.

I’m 100% all for adding some “For Skywalker!” voices to the end battle! I wonder if we could Tweet some TCW/Rebels VAs to record just that line in-character. They’re all stuck quarantined inside already, they must be bored, right?

Yeah, but don’t you think in a case like that you’d have to pay them? Not saying they wouldn’t do it for free, but they’re professional voice actors, rather than ones who are on YouTube and do it for fun.

Having used both Mac and PC, both feel solid to me. PC can be less stable simply because of the array of components available of varying levels of quality, but any build of decent quality parts will be as stable as a Mac. I use PC because that’s what I grew up on and Mac feels awkward to navigate, but that’s all personal preference.

I hear that Davinci Resolve has good video editing on par with FCP or Premiere Pro, maybe you could try that?

I totally agree with you. Nothing against Apple, but I prefer Windows computers, they’re much more user friendly in my opinion.

I guess this might not be useful for Ascendent, but rather than try to rescore the kiss scene, I wonder if it would feel more natural if you were to place parts of that track into one or two of the previous films? Like when they touch hands in TLJ, you could replace the Force theme, which I feel gets overused somewhat in the Sequel Trilogy, with a part from the Farewell track. You could retroactively establish it as their love motif.

EDIT:

I’ll be honest, I really really don’t care for Reylo, but it is undeniably really hot. We should lean into that. - JJ Abrams to Chris Terrio

That could work!

Eh… doesn’t seem to fit snugly. I don’t mind if anyone wants to reach out, but I don’t see this as particularly valuable. I would like, though, to gently fold in a couple bars of Across the Stars.

Ben and Rey still had a love theme that John Williams wrote. Across the Stars was Anakin and Padmé’s love theme, very much how Han and Leia had a love theme too which mashed their themes together.

I think it’d also be best if we remove Finn trying to tell Rey that secret of his, that being his Force abilities. It’s never resolved/answered at all.

Might not be right for Ascendant, but another member is working on a clever way to reuse those scenes for a different context. Maybe they will share it soon! Hopefully it will work.

Not sure what the new context would be. Making it seem that he’s into her seems wrong seeing where their story lines went.

I like that! At first I wondered if ‘Anakin vs. Obi-Wan’ was a good fit but it seems appropriate. The music drop off helps accent Leia cutting in.

Is there unused score on the soundtrack that was originally meant for this duel?

I don’t think there is, except for the score for the second half of the duel that ended up in the film.

Here is my second attempt at the opening, adding the Journey to Exegol track.

Alternatively, we could keep the ship in there, coloring it black to match Kylo’s from TFA. Then we could also put in the deleted TLJ scene and have someone say in the background something like, “Supreme Leader, your shuttle is ready”.

Maybe, but it could start to feel more like a fan edit and less like an actual movie.

Really digging this man; keep up the good work. It be cool to show maybe an establishing shot of Vader’s castle if possible, but it great either way.

I was thinking about adding that as well, but it may get a bit too complicated with the opening in the movie since the castle barely at all connected with the wayfinder’s location on Mustafar.
