Do people seriously hate Hayden this much? Lol.

No, about 50% of this thread by post is suggestions for changing things for the sake of changing things.
I think the current version should be called done & if the myraid collection of pending things that never seem to inch to completion are ever finished then re-do it and give us a pleasant surprise.
The litany of needless minutiae being beaten into the ground is incredibly tedious.

The <strong>Original Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread

I just grazed around their video, a couple of the Y-Wing trench shots looked okayish however a lot of the rest that I saw just looked like a video game. Which the original movie did not (Revenge of the Sith OTOH).
The other problem is the massive bombardment of lasers flying at the ships, we don’t see anything like that before or after this scene in any of the movies, putting it in the movies would just be a massive speed bump.
Speaking of speed bumps, the one thing I would like to see someone fix is the cut that exists when ships are enterig the trench.

Is this really an issue? For all we know there’s different interfaces that a gunner can choose when they fire it up.
It’s like complaining about the hallway lights in the Falcon, in one movie they’re blue-ish in another green-ish Big deal, someone replaced the lights they’re a different color now. I’ve been in plenty of places where you walk through a store or down a hallway and there’s 2-3 different color flourescent lights, white/pink/grey combos. That’s how life is.

Let the past die. Kill it if you have to. It’s the only way to fanedit the way you were meant to.

It’s Imperial March not Darth Vader’s theme song. The Imperial March is in Episode 2,3, Rogue one and even Solo: A Star Wars story. In episode 6 it’s used when the Emperor arrives at the Death Star. Playing the Imperial March for the Revisited’s grand reveal of the Death Star is fitting. That being said, Rogue One Death Star music is fine. Whatever Adywan thinks is best for the scene.

John Willaims disagrees with you

And Yoda may be saying the sacred texts are not really helpful for the current mess. Times change.
Religion, ethical systems, etc. they’re supposed to teach you how to be a person who knows how to act, you don’t particularly need to run back to the owners manual and read chapter 3 again to figure out how to respond to a situation, you’ve learned and you can roll with whatever life throws at you.

When I first watched this fanedit I actually skipped ahead to see if something was fixed or not, it baffles me that in all the official tweaking of this movie that they never have fixed it. It’s the scene in the Death Star with Tarkin and Vader talking and Vader finishes his sentence and then 2-3 seconds later he’s shaking his hand in the air to emphasize what he’s saying but…he’s done talking. And every sanctioned do-over of the movie, this is the first place I head to hoping to see that…oh, crap, they didn’t fix it. Again.

Star Wars: The Last Skywalker Awakens - A sequel trilogy &quot;mega-edit&quot; (RELEASED)

I’ve been casually looking at your preview videos.
An observation about the Holdo’s sacrifice clip - Hux makes the trip from the bridge to Snoke’s throne room very quickly, especially on a ship that has just been sliced and diced by a Mon Calimari Ginsu Cruiser.
I know you’re trying to tighten up three movies into one edit but that watches like a speed bump to me (I feel the same way about C3P0 in TESB, in one shot he’s in the command center on Hoth and then literally in the next scene he’s in the hangar telling R2 to be careful).
Your Journey To Exegol scene is very nicely done.

Speaking of Palpatine clones, I suggest changing them so they all look different from each other but in their own unique, mutilated ways, although one closely resembles Snoke but with some of Palpatine’s facial features — adds to the inference that Palpatine is horrible at manufacturing lifeforms, hence why his body is decaying and deteriorating, and why he can’t just make an entire army of Snokes.

EDIT: Also, make the clones in question dead, implying that Palps’ clone vessel and Snoke himself were barely successes.

OH YEAH! Like Alien: Resurrection!

An image can say a thousand words in any language.

I realize that you’re just presenting a humorous pic that dovetails with the topic at hand, however if that changed to Jyn Erso as a kid holding up her stormtrooper toy…that would be really awesome and could work in the edit. It would also tie into two of the characters in this movie being ex-stormtroopers.

I agree generally with Neerbs comment however I think adding Leia to this is important and also a really nice transition from her death scene. Sure she isn’t a Jedi master because she derailed her training due to her premonitions about her son but she is a pretty Force-y character. She was Rey’s mentor for training and including her in the array brings the Jedi part of the relationship full circle.

Star Wars - Episode IV: The Heir of Skywalker (V2 Released)

It’s a very interesting take on the movie.
The main change is the changes to the color and the music as others have pointed out.
I’ve seen the movie so many times that some of it was jarring to me and some was quite nice.
The music changes I could have done without, however that sounds harsh and I am simply one who thinks there’s a bit too much music in movies (particularly more modern ones). I am a big fan of relative silence with some dialogue and ambient noises.

The creative touches are nice. I like the hologram briefing on the Death Star and I really like the little Empire recruitment spot in the Mos Eisley cantina. What would be really sweet, if you do a V3, would be to tweak that and make it a wanted announcement for a missing ship that is trying to join the rebellion and sneak in a shot of Biggs Darklighter. I think that the most ispired one is how the Falcon enters the Death Star slipping through the docking bays shield. I like how there is a suggestion that the shields don’t have to come down per se, they might just be dialed down for a bit to allow things to come and go while still providing some protection.
The work with Alderan’s destuction is interesting, you have some creative things happening here and should be rightlfully proud of yourself. I look forward to future efforts of yours.

The Art of the Force Awakens book refers to Rey repeatedly as Kira.
What I find interesting is that in the Solo movie they basically recycle that name (Kira becomes Qi’ra).
There’s also a fair amount of pre-production art in there for TFA that appears to have found it’s way into later efforts, including The Mandalorian (sometimes blatantly and sometimes more nuanced).
