Unfortunately, it seems like TROS is the result of that ilk invading youtube discourse.

TROS is the combination of lack of further planning, demmands from producers overlords and a direct please to the hateful minority of SW fans that just bullied the franchise since disney got the license
i believe more creative freedom and 1+ year in development could have resulted in a far better movie, or at least they should have developed TROS from DOTF.
The ep 9 from my dreams would have been a script from JJ and RJ… I would have liked that…

Just a concept so not high quality, but.

tried adding Jedi Purge theme from Revenge Of The Sith to Palpatine’s chain lighting on fleet, idea I got from a friend.

I LOVED THAT
it is a direct throwback to order 66 and is imediatly followed by the “revenge of the jedi” on Palpatine. It’s like poetry, they rhyme

Well, I just finished, and i have to say: it is an improved version of TROS, small changes can fix a lot, i think that’s the case here.
Even though I liked a lot (I got more emotional this time than in the premiere), I agree is indeed conservative, i think is a nice base for radical edits, and, with luck and with the Big-Bad Mouse good will, a future base for an extended cut if deleted/alternate scenes were ever released (or someone is crazy enough to produce new scenes).
There are nitpicks I would complain, a shot here and there, some unnecessary fan-service (like chewie medal or the kiss), etc, but nothing too big to point out (and can be easily customized at will).
Nevertheless, a fine workprint (and fine addition to my headcanon), really looking foward to see the final cut.
Good job, Hal, thanks for making Star Wars better for us 😃

I had a crazy idea as I watch the edit that I think it might be cool and work as little foreshadowing…
in 17:05, when Rey is looking at the forest, may insert a shot with a vfx work Luke Force Ghost/Vision in the woods in a POV of Rey, as the ghosts (mainly Luke) are watching her and standing behind her all along as she trains to be a Jedi, and it would build up to the new Jonh Ghosts vs Palpatine shot, and is not all that hard to make this…

Unless morning is a mad rush, I ought to be able to mux and send it up. It’ll be a 720p ‘Apple Tv’ preset with 5.1 DD.

There’s obviously things that aren’t ready yet, but I’m okay doing this since what’s there is coherent. You could watch this as is and there aren’t any loose ends.

You’re going to post it on your drive? Or it will be another link?

Here’s that clip for you: https://vimeo.com/429010558

The shot of Rey after the saber insert cuts away too quickly. I think you would be better off cutting that quick shot of Rey altogether.

All the work being done here is crazy. Impressive work.

someone here was making “frame interpolation” on some clips in order to extend then a little bit, maybe this can come in handy now…

How’s this rendition of the victory celebration for the ending, especially if other planets are added to the falling Star Destroyers and maybe with people cheering

https://youtu.be/qgjtpiICMdE

I love victory celebration (a lot), but I don’t think it will fit in this movie. Maybe if its a subtle callback on some notes it could work, but this version is far too off the tone one of the ending IMHO.

Okay, party people. A LOT of you sent in voices for the Fleet, so I’m trying to find a balance between making sure everyone’s got a line in there while still making some lines stand out and not muddying the whole thing up. This is what I’ve got right now, let me know what does and doesn’t work:

Version A: https://vimeo.com/427444580

Version B (moved lines of encouragement to Poe to a different shot, not sure if it works): https://vimeo.com/427446625

Passwords are fanedit

that’s amazing, looks like there’s real people behind those ships.
but I think the “For Skywalker” lines could stand more a little bit, it’s kind of hard to hear the way it is now and it’s super important line to understand why those guys are there.

I want to remind some neat idea of simple restructuring to make beggining of the film feel smoother and calmer. We can have Rey training scene following the Senate and Kylo conversation when they mention her, then after Falcon is mentioned we witnes this mission. This way, I think, movie flows more natural and has logical starting point, as in ANH where we follow droids to learn another pieces of a story.

It should also give more freedom to opening crawl cos both Rey and Falcon mission will be mentioned in the movie right before we see them. It should work regardless of shortening Falcon scene, restructuring Kylo vision, Palpatine lines or finding a wayfinder.

There are some rough concepts of tranzitions that I made some time ago testing some awsome ideas from this forum.

The Senate mentions Rey:

Falcon mission mentioned:

Falcon is back:

whoa, these are really nicelly done, i actually think slower scenes could help a lot with little moments like this.

Hey everyone.
I was looking at some DOTF concepts, and I stumbled on a really insteresting one, is basically a “heaven” where Rey would go after she defeats Kylo or something like that.

This: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi2.wp.com%2Fwww.cinespression.it%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2020%2F02%2FyQa0HevP_o.jpg%3Ffit%3D1800%2C877%26ssl%3D1&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cinespression.it%2Fstar-wars-duel-of-the-fates-ecco-una-serie-di-nuovi-concept-art-dal-film-di-colin-trevorrow%2Famp%3D1&tbnid=lPon3Aaq2PdseM&vet=12ahUKEwiCxvuP1vDpAhViB7kGHVK1Bs4QMygBegQIARAb..i&docid=lmCztP4Sbey3KM&w=1800&h=877&q=star wars duel of the fates concept art&hl=en&ved=2ahUKEwiCxvuP1vDpAhViB7kGHVK1Bs4QMygBegQIARAb

And I have this buging me for a while, because I think it’s a nice concept that we can, somehow, create and implement with some hard work. Thinking on the possibility of making this real (since most of imagens we can take from pre-existing materials), I’ve written a script of a possible scene.

Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EXidngkKFB847_n1PDjKKPRUaV0wuTwT/view?usp=sharing

I think this could be a good scene, it helps to give context, slow down the pacing, and give an overall message and expansion lore-wise. All we need to make this real is a really good editor (there’s a lot of excelent ones here), some nice voice-actors (not really hard to find with we look close) and a LOT of creativity. Anyway, just wishfull thinking on what we could do with some hard work. Tell me what you think.

JEDIT: The link i shared have the option of making comments. Feel free to tell me what you think can be improved there (so as here).

None have sound except Rey and Chewie. The fleet and the Tantive IV both need work.

the result is nice, but what’s the point here?

On a personal note, thinking back over my long history jacking around with this set of particular movies, I really feel like it’s time to stop. I can’t keep doing this and the obsession needs to end.

I’m going to see this project through, and give it as good a release as we can. I’ll even hold out in order to release an alternate ‘Rey Nobody’ cut.

But once it gets laid in place, there will probably not be a V2. Any and everyone will be more than welcome to take it and run with it to tweak and do with what they please. I’ll put out a lossless audio export and all.

But I have to make a decisive break with this when this is over. Otherwise I’ll see imperfections and be tempted to get sucked back into it. It served a purpose earlier in my life that was helpful, then I went back to it to do it right in 2013, and I’ve been pretty focused since. The prequels have been given several passes, the OT is about as reasonably good as I ever thought they’d be, TFA is wonderful, TLJ is nice, and TROS will be more fun. There will always be unfortunate aspects of them, imperfections, and issues. But I need to let go of them and let them lay.

I thank you all again for continuing to make this last hurrah surprisingly fun, but that’s what it’s going to be.

You are amazing, so much passion and effort you’ve put in these movies all because you love them. You are a spark of hope in the middle of the darkness that most of fandoms has turned in. You remind me a lot of Adywan.

Knight of Kalee said:

Personally, I think keeping “the final word in the story of rebellion” line feels a bit unfitting when the ghosts are now the main selling point of the scene. It’s like Palps is ignoring the ghosts on purpose. Jonh’s original version, where that line is cut, and Palpatine quickly goes for the lightning, makes Palpatine look as he’s genuinely reacting to the sight of all the Jedi and counterattacking out of shock/panic.

I’d like it better if he said “…in the story of the Jedi” instead.

exact! fear!

If that’s the case, Palps’ eyes could be more open to show his actual surprise/fear.

Also a suggestion to you John: fliping the shots of Luke and Anakin when you show their faces for the first time could be a nice idea, in filmmaking, we tend to show things in the most harmic way, as the order of the ghost from left to right is: Yoda, Obi-Wan, Luke and Anakin, is more harmonic to show then in this order instead of Yoda, Obi-Wan, Anakin and Luke. What do you think?
Another suggestion: maybe remove the shot were the ghosts vanishes, its a bit static and we can imply they disappear after Palpatine dies as they don’t show up again.

Otherwise, I’m really impressed of what you guys are pulling of this movie. I feel so much love and passion here. Really looking foward to see how it will evolve.

I think I’m a little too late, but I was thinking about (don’t know if anyone else had that idea) if there was some way to make Rey’s Parents be Sith Cultists.
Hear me out:

Rey’s parents being Sith Cultists would make them still nobodies, with Rey being born to work for the Sith Fleet would make her just one in a billion, but she being the only one to be born with the Force in Exegol could explain her being so powerful or something like that, and also would tier her to something bigger and sinister, because Palpatine could look to her as the perfect vessel for his spirit/apprentice to continue the Sith.
Her parent’s could betray Palpatine and leave with little Rey as soon as they discover her power to protect her as a act of love (Star Wars is all about love after all).

And instead of the “You’re a Palpatine” reveal, Kylo could explain “Your parents were sith cultists, only you, born in a million, the only one who could stand against Palpatine, he wants to kill because of your power, he fears you” or some dark side thing like that. And at the end we could learn Palpatine doesn’t want her dead and blablabla.

That’s my first post here. Just wanted to share this idea.
