The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (SPOILERS)
Time

As disappointing as the news is to hear that the first home video release will not feature deleted scenes, there’s also the possibility that they could be released in a future Blu-ray. The Force Awakens had more bonus features and deleted scenes included in the 3D Blu-ray released in November 2016 compared to its standard Blu-ray in April that same year.

Also, the more I’ve thought about it, I think there is a way to make a good edit of The Rise of Skywalker, with or without deleted scenes. All it would take would be to cleverly use other material, including stuff from fans, as well as restructuring and shuffling some of the scenes.

The intention of adding it (in my edit anyway) was to give the vision some more immediate relevance to Rey’s emotional state - she’s afraid of losing people forever and fears that this has just happened with Finn. I don’t think it needs to speak to the rest of the trilogy.

I see your point, but if her vision shows the past and future, such as accurately predicting her fight in the snowy woods with Kylo Ren, then this would be an event that never happened. It could work for a personal nightmare she’s having, but the vision is mainly triggered from touching the lightsaber which has had a legacy that she is unaware of and is experiencing and interacting with for her first time.

No deleted scenes in the TROS BD… ok i’m done with this movie…

Inside, I’m telling myself that this is not true, but I think this is a fact. Is this an act of hiding the behind the scenes and fan backlash towards The Rise of Skywalker, kinda like how they never released deleted scenes for Rogue One. Solo a much worse production, and still, deleted scenes were released, despite trying to hide the director change.

I don’t know how true this is, but one of the actors who played one of the Knights of Ren said they saw an ending where Rey dies and Ben takes on the Skywalker name. Could be false, but if true, there may be a very unlikely chance this ending makes the deleted scenes release.

It was confirmed false. That guy didn’t even play a Knight of Ren, he was making it up.

I’m not really surprised to hear that. Sorry for posting this.

Yeah. FCP7 is already well past it’s lifespan and I’m not in a hurry to learn all over again using something else. I’ll always have FCPX for personal or simple things, but I’m happy with having good 1080p Star Wars and LOTR stuff. That’s 95% of all I’ve edited anyway. This was always a short set of projects rather than a hobby. It’s just that those projects went on and on.

And it’ll take a handful of miracles to have the time required to eventually complete a TROS project.

Understandable, I was just curious if this has ever been a fun hobby to you as it has been for me and other fan editors. There are so many movies out there to cut your teeth into to fix up or do something special with that it keeps the future of fan editing thriving.

I’d think it’d be a lot easier to remove Rey Palpatine and Rey’s Virtuous Parents in one fell swoop.

I really don’t know. Forgive me if I let this thread out of my mind for a while until we’re a little closer to being able to actually do much with it.

And like I said, I anticipate being a glorified figurehead for this, aiming to produce a “well, here you go” version anyone else can run with themselves. My point is: I doubt it’s gonna be me that comes up with any of the good ideas, not the least reason being a super busy home and work like to juggle.

That’s very understandable. I think a lot of others will do the same. Let’s hope that we will get a lot of deleted scenes come the film’s home release. Maybe even deleted scenes from the others in The Skywalker Saga 4K box set, considering that there’s about 27 discs included.

I wish that angle was never put to film, but I’m not sure I want to go that route. We’ll see but I expect that won’t change.

I understand. I too am also someone who prefers sticking true to route. It’s even more difficult to do that with the Sequels now that they’re following the Original Trilogy. It was much easier for the Prequels because they preceded the Original Trilogy and were made afterwards. So it’s much easier for us to make changes to strengthen the continuity with the original three films.

Continuity can be fixed with the Sequels, but something tells me that J.J. Abrams changed Rey’s origin for this film, knowing how much backlash was given from her being a nobody in The Last Jedi, so he changed his original plan to satisfy the fans. I also don’t believe his word that Palpatine was always planned from the start of the trilogy, but that’s a discussion for another thread.

Just a suggestion, but do you think you’ll remove the reveal of Rey being Palpatine’s granddaughter at this point? I know that there are moments in the film that play towards this narrative, but they (like Palpatine offering her the rank as Empress) can still be kept in with an altering viewpoint and motivation.

He could offer her the throne knowing how powerful in the Force she is and ordered for her and her parents to be killed knowing her raw power that could potentially be a threat to him.

Her being his granddaughter does raise so many unanswered questions, especially who and when did Palpatine married to have a son. I’ve always liked the aspect of Rey being a nobody and rising (no pun intended) to become somebody worth of recognition. Even the ending of her doning the name Skywalker would make things even stronger without her being related to the Emperor.

I don’t know if I should mention this or not, but have you seen the list of scenes cut that we may get come the Blu-ray release. This post should be taken with a HUGE grain of salt, though.

I wasn’t too sure about the legitimacy of this post. That’s why I said to take it with a huge grain of salt.
