Info: Has anyone heard more about Star Ep9: Rise of Skywalker’s The J.J. Abrams Cut??
Time

To be completely fair…
A script is written 3 times: 1st time is in, well, scriptwritting, 2nd is in the direction, and the 3rd time is the editing, and there is a lot good examples of how a good ‘montage’ has completly saved what was meant to be a doomed movie (star wars lol), so… who knows, right?
Personally i think the Snyder cut will be just as good as BvS (not very good, but enjoyable if you’re high on drugs).
Also i stand my ground about the possiblity of beign a good movie inside what was filmed of TROS, it just needed the right scissors and coats of paint (as this community has proved).

Indenpendent of the veracity of a “JJcut”, TROS screams for a new cut. In my dream world, someone like Dave Filoni would be the perfect guy to take the job of edit this movie.
TROS is a problematic movie that had 3 months less of post-production in an already rushed production, most of the final product problems are related to pacing and story decisions that could be fixed with the supervision of a sharp editor and no fear to cut what doesn’t work.
HAL’s edit, for example, it’s in a 4th workprint and it’s already a far better movie than the original TROS, and is being done by this very community, being done with the incredible budget of the power of love and friendship, so imagine what the guys at LF could do?
I don’t believe in a JJcut, not by a long shot, but i believe that, somewhere in the vaults of the Big Bad Mouse, there is more than enough material to craft a beautiful ending for the trilogy as we all deserved. Sincerely, i don’t even bother to ask for a new cut of this movie, I just hope for a release of deleted/alternate scenes, like the Mustafar extended sequence, etc.

Hey, first of all, i’m really loving your edit, really looking foward to watch them when they’re done 😄
But i have to ask, there is a video somewhere in another thread (maybe the PT redux) of Palpatine’s face morphing into the Emperor’s face during the Mace vs Palpatine duel, you plan to add this in your edit?

Yeah, I’m actually ok with Option 2; keeping Rey scolding Poe could make a hypothetical audience member think that “lightspeed skipping” simply means a hasty jump to hyperspace (without careful calculations, etc) and that is what got the Falcon in bad shape . After all Poe just goes and activates lightspeed right as the ship smashes against the ice wall. In that case, I don’t know if keeping the TIEs following the Falcon into hyperspace is strictly necessary, though it’s okay if it’s done this way since it’s established those special TIEs do have hyperdrives.

i’ve always though that lol
also the “lightspeed skipping” chat is pretty funny IMO

Since we have already changed some 3PO lines and cut out the reference to R2 having his memory backed up, I wanted to go ahead and see if it would be possible to not have R2 reupload 3PO’s memories at all. This is what I came up with.

I think the first scene, where 3PO meets R2 again, could be moved to before the scenes with Rey on Ach-To. That way it feels like R2 and 3PO have been speaking for awhile, and we catch back up with them in the middle of a conversation. I also slightly changed 3PO’s lines regarding the transmission to make him speak more objectively, since he may not have been caught up on who Luke is yet. It might not be right for Ascendant, but I thought I’d go ahead and share it.

I just wish we had more unmasked David Prowse footage to do this scene and the ghost.

Fun Fact: for the documentary “I Am Your Father” about David Prowse’s career, they reshot the unmasking scene with Prowse as Anakin; but Disney wouldn’t let them release it to the public, so only the documentary crew (as well as Prowse himself) have access to it.

i really wish to see this one day…

Hal, that edit looks seamless to me!

I don’t know where you head it at with a Rey Nobody version, so I can post this in the other thread if you prefer, but I revisited the “Just Rey” edit I did a couple of months ago and made a few tweaks with fresh eyes and ears. I think this is best version yet? It’s also master quality and the link is downloadable.

Just Rey
pw: fanedit

this is canon to me i don’t care what disney says

Cool! I’m planning a regular Rey Palptine version first, then a Rey Nobody version whenever the pieces are ready for it. In my head, I’m gonna think of the first as my canon. I would’ve preferred her to have remained a “””nobody””” but this particular film seems shaped by her new heritage. But I don’t mind allowing for both. I can imagine randomly selecting which one to play even.

But even for Rey Nobody, unless it’s near unanimous, I think it’s stronger to keep the original final line.

i think “just Rey” could fit really well in the “Rey Palpatine” version, i think she grew over the fact that she needs a last name, she already found a family in her new friends, and “there are things stronger than blood”, i do not hate “Rey Skywalker”, but i think “Rey Nobody” fits better with her character in any case.
If the original movie was “Rey Nobody” all along, i think “Rey Skywalker” would be a good ending to that story, she found her family there, but in “Rey Palpatine”, the whole deal is about she growing past family titles and heritages.

I’ll see what can be done. I think we’ll need some cutaway shots so Palpatine can still tell Kylo “(The might of the Final Order will soon be ready.) It will be yours to command if you do as I ask.”

Cutting to the large stadium area would maybe be weird since that was kept for later. There’s really not much else to cull from that I am aware.

Maybe could be shots from the sith throne, the first time we see the throne is during Rey/Kylo’s vision, i think to introduce the throne in the first Exegol scene is better than introduce it in a flash during a vision, and makes the vision works better since it looks like Kylo is making her see what he saw on Exegol

EDIT: Well, it might be awkward to have Palpatine just offer Kylo a vague “Final Order” “might” during the opening, and a subsequent reference to “outdated ships” or whatever wouldn’t make immediate sense. 😕

In the board meeting the FO officers are upset about of Kylo Ren’s decision of helping the Emperor, they don’t belive in Palpatine and his vague promisse, but Kylo even says that “what he saw in Exegol could turn the FO into a real Empire”, so he saw the destroyers there at some point, but we as audience did not, works like a build up to the reveal of what is the Final Order when Palps talks to Pryde and the destroyers emerges from the ice…

Yeah that’s too bad I guess.
Speaking of the destroyers rising, what about moving that up to when Palpatine says to Pride “the final Order begins”? I think not seeing them until the 3rd act builds up anticipation instead of revealing all the cards in the first few minutes of the opening.
They’re also just floating there for no apparent reason for 3 quarters of the film.

that’s an insteresting idea, almost seens like the ships were being build during the movie
maybe a line during the FO meeting about “moving precious resources and personel to repair outdated ships” could help with this…
