Rise of the Rebellion: A Rogue One Edit (Released)
Time

I like the Survival Cut as an alternate experience to the original…however, you know there’s a gaping plot hole created now. The scene with Jyn running on the beach to the U-Wing at the end…she’s carrying the Scarif hard drive with the Death Star plans. So if the U Wing with her on board goes to light speed, escaping the battle, the secret plans are on there and there is no reason for her and the team not to go back to Yavin 4. Which makes the plot of A New Hope redundant.

Most Powerful Quote in all the Star Wars films.
Time

You knew my father?
Here’s my take on an underappreciated facet of Star Wars and the world for kids in 1977.
There was a huge explosion in divorce in the early 1970’s and society really wasn’t prepared for it.
I’ll give you an example, my parents got divorced and my dad wanted to see our report cards. There were no policies for this sort of thing. He was told the custodial parent got it haveaniceday. Off to court he went, he had a right to see our report cards without going through his ex-wife.
There were a lot of kids growing up largely without dads.
I feel that the scene with Luke and Ben really resonated for a lot of us, even though being 8,9,10, 11 years old we weren’t really consciously aware of it…it spoke to us.
That scene in Ben’s house, when you’re a ten year old kid that’s when you get up to go pee, get some more popcorn, whatever. It’s a slow scene.
“You knew my father?” Yeah, our butts stayed in our seats, Luke was us.

The Mandalorian Season 1 & 2 Mixed Edit Ideas? (Spoilers)
Time

Horesz1994 said:

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:

  1. opens with mando as a kid being rescued (move #1)
  2. 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.

Discussion: What is the oldest Star Wars merchandise in your collection?

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.

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 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.

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - ** PRODUCTION HAS NOW RESTARTED **

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.

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.
