May I have a link to your edit? Always been more a fan of 8 than 7 or 9.
To be completely honest, I’d download and watch the shit out of a cut of the Mandalorian wherein a whole season is cut together, only leaving out the recaps and end credits, preferably with timed English subs. I unfortunately have no talent or time or skill to do it, but even if it would be 4+ hours long, it would be practical for me. And now we have 2 full seasons, so 8-10 more hours of Star Wars content worthy of long runtimes.
This is almost what I did with mine. 4 x films approx 2 hrs 20 min each.
Trimmed two lines of dialogue.
Removed one scene that doesn’t work for me.
Moved three scenes:
- opens with mando as a kid being rescued (move #1)
- moves to peaceful village being attacked (move #2)
and then episode 1 start
move #3 involves moving the ashoka scene scene that starts her episode to later in the episode so it looks like she comes to the village, says what she has to say, is rebuffed and then she and mando go after liberating the village (I had to cut one line of dialogue here to make it work).
Cut - mando’s skype session with gideon. Just doesn’t work for me.
I have the original Star Wars program book. Beautiful, but with a weird pink fading. Only seems to affect the text.
I bought mine new in a theater in 1977 and it was printed pink.
I’ve bought another which is not pink, I think it was probably a printer error and someone shrugged and said, eh, who’s gonna care? Ship 'em and sell 'em.
The Dark Troopers remind me of Baron Karza from the Micronauts.
So Bo Katan may not want to kill Mando but how about they hook up and she gets the darksaber via marriage and they’re off to re-establish the greater Mando culture as acting King/Queen (wahtever titles they use, I don’t follow the EU or the cartoons too closely).
The upcoming 4k release has the song.
In my version there is a funeral and Padme lives.
She has a history of using decoys, she faked her death.
Anyone else noticing Google Drive working…odd…after updating the latest version of Chrome?
I copied this file last night to my google drive and today, at work, could stream the mp3 I have on google drive.
Came home, could not stream or download ANYTHING. Error messages and dead ends left and right.
Log in to my Google Drive via microsoft edge and can stream and download at will. Really, really weird.
I agree with an comment a couple up about the KoR dialogue. I like the dialogue but the sound doesn’t really blend, did not watch through browser if that helps. I thought it sounded too loud.

If he wasn’t force sensitive, then how is Rey? And at any rate, it can’t be something she inherited from Palptine then, right?
I don’t see any upside to making him a clone in the novelization. Lol
Midichlorians. Some got 'em, some don’t.
I think it would be a good idea to do another WP and call it a day until whatever odds and sods are produced to call it done. Quite honestly the thread has devolved into change/tweak things for the sake of changing/tweaking things.
A point of demarcation may be useful…this is it and the final thing will be if/when this that and the other thing exist, otherwise done.
Generally agree about the time lock tied in with the beacon.
They have 70 bajillion souped up Star Destroyers hanging out there.
You destroy the beacon…um…they build another one. Or two. Just to be safe.
Unless they’re out of building resouces from crafting 70 bajillion souped up Star Destroyers.
I agree, my biggest issue with what Yoda says is he basically says the same thing in every movie.
Let me guess, fear, anger, the path to the dark side.
Ben doesn’t get a whole lot to say, either. In my ROTJ cut I eliminated the Ben scene entirely and let Darth Vader do the math via the Force about the other child and be the revelator of that. It works much, much better.
When I bought the OT on VHS I recut my Super 8 films & years later when I got a laserdisc player I did my first stab at a chronological Back to the Future and I did a supercut of Krystof Kieslowski’s Three Colors trilogy as one movie.
Option 3, if you like the scene (like I do) then use the edit as a base and make your own version restoring it.
Open request to the team working on this…
not sure how close it is to a v.1 but please consider that the folks who populate this site represent a wide spectrum of abilities and access to the internet. When this is released please ensure it is accessible to the intended audience, we all aren’t on ‘‘the spleen’’ and that jdownloader thing…I don’t personally know anyone who ever got it to work.
I make my own edits and I have been really impressed by the clips shown, I don’t have the skills or time that you all are investing in this to do things to the scale that you are…I’d really like to be able to see this when it’s done and every time I see another cool post the 1st thing I think is how hard is getting a copy of this going to be?
I think the Poe humor in TFA and TROS is some of the worst in the entire franchise, especially the recylced joke from Lost in the beginning of TFA. I agree that JJA needs someone to reign him in, he’s super creative but needs some inflexiible limits imposed on him.
Regarding the film in question in this thread, I am a bit more forgiving of it than others, however I am really excited to see how this FE project turns out.
If you’re looking for inserts to drawn out some scenes I think some of the ocean wave scenes from Interstellar could be pilfered to provide more of a sense of environment to the scenes with the partially submerged wreckage of the Death Star.
Regarding the Reynbow; she’s a Jedi, not Maud Dib.
I did love that concept art in the BTS of her sitting on the Skywalker dome watching the sunset, wish they would have executed that instead.
This attitude is unbelievable for such a big, mainstream blockbuster.
It should not be that surprising from a movie done by the same director that earlier gave you a movie with Luke’s recovered lightsaber…and even included a chiding scene where a character says that the backstory for that is ''for another time." Or that the original idea for the opening of TFA was Luke’s hand clutching the saber floating through space.
Kylo Ren’s motivations toward Rey change pretty quickly in this one (like a lot of the movie, I guess).
Maybe that could be made more acceptable by tweaking a scene, if possible, where Palpy articulates that he knows Ren has feelings for ''the scavenger girl" and somehow validates them…maybe a warning that ''your feelings for her will be your undoing." Something like that would work on two levels, one, Ren’s ‘‘anything you can do I can do better’’ attitude and, two, making the Reylo flip a bit easier to digest timewise. Oh and then he does end up being undone due to her feelings for her so it would validate to a bit Palpy’s continuing forciness.
The movie is like a John Tesh cd, too many crescendos and climaxes and not enough melody and song.

While John Williams has been a consistent architect of music for these films I think that some of these sequences would be better served with no music, just the fight and the sounds of the world around them. Sometimes less is more. Rise of the Skywalker is the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom of this franchise, it needs to be allowed to breathe more than it was. Aside from Rey Palpatine it’s alright, if it wasn’t a rollercoaster and more of a story it would be a better watch.
How about moving the opening of TROS to the opening of TLJ?
This changes Kylo Ren’s motivation throughout the movie and, adding the failed Snoke clones, would serve as an enhancer to why he wipes out Snoke when he has a chance with Rey and moves to consolidate his power base.
I liked the dagger bullshit in so far as it felt like a bit from Indiana Jones.
This movie is the “Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom” of the Star Wars franchise.
