Indeed. Didn’t Hal have issues too? I need a new computer asap. I can’t work under these conditions LOL

I agree, She’s angry through so much of this movie, Even the training scene was pretty aggressive.

That’s why I can’t wait for Rey Nobody. They actually have a semi-well set up story about Rey falling due to her own anger and darkness; but then they completely undermine it by saying the reason she might fall to Dark Side is because Palpy is her grandpa, and “the Dark Side is in her blood” or something arbitrary like that.

Well, I have no idea how to actually add the lightning into the shot; but I was able to add the sound effects of Rey’s lightning from earlier into the scene. If anyone who knows how to do the lightning effect wants to take over from here, that would be amazing!

reminds me of this vid i saw some time back.

Dude, those effects look fantastic! I wonder if JXEditor would be able to add them to this new shot as well? Personally, I feel like she should just use the lightning one more time, with Finn. Blocking the lightsaber with lightning…it feels too intentional to me, too deliberate. I like the implication that she’s only able to cast it when she’s losing control, rather than her actively embracing the Dark Side here.

And Jar Jar, I feel like Rey’s lightning should have its own distinct sound from Snoke’s lightning. Base it on the person casting it, rather than the type of attack. The latter feels kind of “video-gamey.” The Rey sound effect also has a bit more “oomph” to it, I think.

Lol, just rotoscope Palpy’s face onto Finn’s. But honestly, Grandpa Sheev is the only one who was actually deformed by lightning. (That’s why it makes so much more sense in your Ep. III edit, Hal.)

I know! Someone removed the lightning from Palpster’s hands when he raises the Fleet, yes? Let’s just reinsert that lighting onto Rey. That’s how VFX work, right?

Here’s an idea for an edit to the Battle of Exegol that uses some Vehicle Flythroughs footage:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB4hSGtdD8o

I like this a lot! Of course, it would depend on being able to successfully overdub that line though, to make sure the sequence still makes logical sense. Also, would it be possible to move the camera a bit on the insert? A slight zoom, and/or a small pan to the right? J.J. moves his camera so much, especially during action scenes; it stands out to me as an artificial insert if it basically pauses on a static shot mid-sequence.


Also, this isn’t related to anything at all, but you know when Rey and Kylo are dueling on the Death Star, and Rey turns around and pushes Finn back? I was thinking it might be cool to have lightning shoot out and hit Finn, rather than a Jedi-like Force Push (kind of like when Snoke threw Kylo back in TLJ, he did it with a burst of lightning). Just like with the lightsaber sputtering out, it would symbolize that she’s dangerously close to losing control (something I never really felt in the theatrical version), and it would help to build to her stabbing Kylo in a cheap shot and then wanting to flee. (REY: “I’m here because I had a vision of myself on the Sith Throne.” LUKE: “Rey, that was 90 minutes ago! You haven’t even used any Sith powers since Pasaana, and that was four locations back!”)

God, just imagine it - the rain, the crackly saber, the bleak Duel of the Fates music…Rey accidentally loses control and shoots lightning at her friend (again), and then a minute later the legendary Skywalker Saber - that she failed to rebuild - starts to sputter out. She has utterly failed as a Jedi. It’s genuinely her lowest point in the film - makes a whole lot more sense why she would suddenly be so scared that she goes into hiding on Ahch-To.

My feeling on the ghost thing is that people can try to explain the exact “procedure” for ghost apparitions however they want; but the canon is full of contradictions in that regard, so I don’t really care about the logistics. Bodies vanish except when they don’t. People have to be taught the technique before they die unless they appear later anyway (Anakin, in both regards). The details don’t matter.

So in that regard, I was leaning more for the large group myself (helping to tie all of the saga together), but I think Neerb may have actually convinced me otherwise:

Neerb said:

I think Leia appearing as a ghost in the Palpatine fight would hurt the payoff on Tatooine where Rey sees Leia, without adding enough to the Palpatine fight to compensate. Rey hearing Leia’s “always,” which Hal has already incorporated from the trailer, is satisfying enough without being distracting.

Maybe it’s just me, but when the ghosts appear against Palpatine, I see it as a kind of catharsis where these Jedi that have spent decades against The Sith are finally getting their due; Sidious is literally facing his ghosts.

Well said, friend. (Of course, Mace fought Palpatine too, but I can ignore that.)

But regardless of what I want, Hal has made his preference for the Ghostly Quartet clear by this point.

Jonh just dropped something out the blue…

https://youtu.be/iT0HAvqB-EA

I saw a comment on the YouTube video saying that Qui-Gon, Ahsoka, and Windu, shouldn’t be there, but in my eyes (as a hard stickler for canon) Qui-Gon and Ahsoka are fine, Windu is just the odd one out. Qui-Gon canonically was able to appear physically to Kenobi by the time of ANH (as per the From a Certain Point of View book for that film) and since every Jedi after Kenobi had become a Force ghost also became one, it’s safe to say that Ahsoka would, the only question is if she’s dead or not by the time of TROS (and Dave Filoni has implied/joked that she isn’t :S). And as for Windu, there’s almost no chance he could have become one, but the Story Group could always bend over backward and make it happen if they wanted.

I mentioned this in a comment above, but if we go with the explanation that “Only Jedi who were taught by Qui-Gon while they were still alive can return as ghosts,” then we have to exclude Anakin from that group as well. If Anakin can learn after he’s died, the other Jedi should be able to too. So I say, the more, the merrier!

I didn’t realize Filoni had already implied that Ahsoka is still alive - that might throw a huge wrench with the upcoming Ahsoka show. jonh - if there’s any way to have the expanded version with the extra Jedi, but a variation without Ahsoka, that would just be incredible!! (And with the purple/crackly lightsaber effects, of course!)

<em>REY NOBODY</em> - The 'Official' Fan-Editing Thread

hinventon said:

Has there been a solid Rey Nobody implementation yet? I love the stuff happening for Ascendant but the movie won’t feel complete unless Rey Palpatine is scrubbed forever.

100% agree. Hal’s plan is to get Ascendant V2 out with all of the new cuts and VFX work, and then put out a “V2 - Rey Nobody” version after that, I believe.

For what it’s worth, I’m absolutely in love with RogueLeader’s reinterpretation of the film - rather than making the film all about Rey’s past, it would be reinterpreted to being about her future. It would emphasize the internal conflict she has about accepting or rejecting the vision of her falling to the Dark Side. To me, it’s the interpretation that feels most in line with TLJ’s themes of Rey letting go of her past; and it also feels like the cleanest direction to take the film out of the different versions discussed.

Also, RL’s hangar scene is just…*chef’s kiss*

RogueLeader said:

In this version of the film, I would remove any reference to Rey recognizing Ochi’s ship, or Rey seeing her parents in any vision. I may try to tackle the Force bond duel at some point, but in this version I would probably shorten the scene, and replace a lot of the dialogue with more generic taunts about Kylo sensing the darkness within her.

This version of the hangar scene just has Kylo Ren confirm Rey’s fears about the vision she saw earlier in the film. Rey’s reaction to info she already has might seem a little dramatic, but in my mind, I interpret Rey’s reaction as her starting to feel that her future is fated and inescapable. But a part of her is still in denial, convincing herself that Kylo Ren is lying in order to manipulate her.

Here’s a rough test for their hangar interaction: https://vimeo.com/447063673

https://youtu.be/iT0HAvqB-EA

WHAT? Oh my god, that’s just amazing. My inner child just squealed with delight.

Lots of thoughts haha…

On one hand, people have mentioned that a lot of those ghosts don’t really matter for the Sequel Trilogy. Which, as much as I appreciate that argument, I’d counter-argue that Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin don’t matter to Rey in the slightest - so by that logic, the only one who should be there is Luke. (And, to be clear, I 100% still want the ghosts.)

I guess I treat the ghosts’ inclusion as a finale of the saga as a whole, not just the last three movies; so from that perspective, I think it’s valid to have the Prequels represented. They’re already in the voice over, so it’s like their whispers are them gathering to Rey before they appear visually. In that sense, I think they should all be included.

With Leia, I know her body hasn’t disappeared yet, but…I don’t care? Besides, if it is a bother, we could just move Leia fading away to maybe right after Poe leaves her bedside? Like, Poe decides to assume her mantle as leader, cut back to Leia, she fades away… (None of the other Force Ghosts even wait that long before fading away, so I think it’s fine. I like crosscutting Leia’s fading with Ben’s, but I’m also fine with giving each of them their own moments.

Technically, I’d prefer to keep some variation of the original music in the scene, rather than the trailer music. I’d also wonder, jonh, if it’s possible to have Luke and Leia fade out a second or two later than the other ghosts, so that they’re the last ones we see?

In terms of canon, I don’t care that the other ghosts “didn’t learn” how to manifest. According to canon, Qui-Gon taught Yoda, who taught Obi-Wan. But who taught Anakin? He shouldn’t be a Force Ghost either, then. I think it’s safe to assume that once Obi-Wan became one with the Cosmic Force, he could have taught other deceased Jedi how to return.

I would say that I’d rather cut Ahsoka - not because she hasn’t been seen before in the main saga, just because we don’t know what will happen to her in her new Disney+ series. (Yes, the implication of hearing her voice is that she died; but we don’t know that for a fact. Maybe she was alive, and just felt Rey reaching out to all Jedi, past and present? I don’t care if it’s in a book; the upcoming show may retcon it anyway.)

Yeah, lots of thoughts.

EDIT: And oh yes, the lightsaber should be purple lol!

“Leia told me that she sensed the end of her Jedi path.”

I’d really like this if it can be made to sound seamless. I’d really prefer it not be tied to Ben at all. I think it’s in character for Leia to end her Jedi training because she feel she can do more good in getting the new government off the ground.

Yeah, Leia never seemed to want to be a Jedi in the other movies. She was a politician and a commander, and she seemed (based on TFA and TLJ) to have pursued that path while Luke pursued being a Jedi. It felt weird to me in theatres when the film retconned that into Leia being basically a full Jedi, and Luke saying, “Ha! Nah, she totally trained to be a Jedi off camera. She just gave it all up because [external factors pushed her out of a career path she apparently always wanted, #feminism].” At least with this rework, it gives her character more agency - she decides to quit because that’s what she wants, not because she thinks it’ll magically somehow prevent her son from dying. (And, by the way, that plan was a rousing success, Leia. You idiot.)

So on that note…ehhh? https://streamable.com/ehphfh

Every time I see the changes laid out like that, I’m literally stunned by the talent and creativity of this community. Thank you, all!

Hal 9000 said:

  • Slight tweak so Rey is shown contemplating before asking 3PO to consider going through with a memory wipe

Do you have a clip of this, Hal? I know I was thinking about this as well, but I didn’t realize something had already been submitted. Is that when they’re debating going to Kijimi at all, or when they’re already in Babu’s workshop?

Also, just some house cleaning things - are we still considering changes on the following:

  • Change “Leia sensed the death of her son." Either to "birth of her son" if we can find audio to support it; or else “sensed her son at the end of her Jedi path,” or even just “Leia told me that she sensed the end of her Jedi path.”
  • Clean up the ending of the Pasaana chase, using bbghost’s trimming and my padded shot (and/or some other variation - maybe we can pad it using some of the new footage from Biomes of Hoth or Tatooine?)
  • Restructure Rey’s death. (Hal, you expressed interest in this idea, but said that the first attempt didn’t quite land. I did an updated version a little while back - does it solve whatever qualms you had about it? Again, removing the kiss was just for my benefit. We can leave the kiss in.)

Or have all of these suggestions been vetoed for one reason or another?

I like that idea, Sherlock, but I wonder if that’d be weird to actually have sequenced that way.

Scenes and scenes and planets have gone by, and Hux just now tells him “it was a coordinated incursion.”

I do like the idea of slowing down with an establishing shot after we settle in with Lando, and possibly at the end of that scene, with engines lighting up.

And - this may sound blasphemous - but I actually don’t really like the establishing shot before the necklace scene? The scene is so quick that it basically feels like the film is cross cutting between Kylo’s ship and Lando’s sex dungeon. An establishing shot is usually reserved for a whole scene - does a cutaway warrant that? We’d basically be spending more time in the establishing shot than in the meat and potatoes of the scene.

If we applied this same logic to Mustafar then we wouldn’t have come up with all those establishing shots.

I’m all for establishing shots, and for slowing down the film’s pacing. But it’s not the same as Mustafar. Mustafar is an entire sequence, where, like…things happen. And it’s over a minute long. And it’s the very first scene in the movie, so it makes sense to establish not just that location, but the film as a whole. For settling into the movie.

To me - and this is subjective - it would feel weird to be in the middle of one scene, have an establishing shot of a different one, 25 second “scene,” and then cut back to the first location. With a cutaway like that, editing implies that the scenes are happening concurrently. So if you’re in the middle of a conversation, another conversation may be happening at the same time; but you wouldn’t want to just sit there idling waiting for the conversation to restart. You’re already settled into the Lando scene. You can’t just uproot yourself and settle into a completely different location, and then snap back. It’ll be jarring.

Think of it this way: you’re listening to one conversation. You turn your head, and see another conversation on your other side. Then you look back at the original conversation. If the first conversation wasn’t done, you wouldn’t pack up your things, walk to a new location, settle in, and find a different conversation, right?

Again, this is all subjective; but we can’t just use establishing shots willy-nilly. We should treat them how a professional director/editor would; establishing shots are more about settling the audience into a scene than they are about padding it.

Oh yeah, it’s an idea more for my own edit, where I’m hoping to remove the Hux Spy stuff entirely. I was probably going to just remove Hux’s line there as well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Either that, or just move the Pryde/Palpy conversation up to right after the Gang™ escape? I dunno. It’s not something I’m actively going to fight for in this edit either way.

And - this may sound blasphemous - but I actually don’t really like the establishing shot before the necklace scene?

Maybe it would feel better if it was moved to after Lando crossbows the trooper? They start walking away with Billy Dee’s body double, cut to Kylo’s ship; and then cut back to a slightly different location on Pasaana? Implying that they’ve been walking for a while to get away from the troopers.

Eh, I don’t really care. I’m working on an alternate workaround for the necklace scene anyway, so it doesn’t really matter to me.

I believe there was a shot of the engines as well. You can cut to the exterior after the shot of Pryde, and then to the shot of the engines to imply they are on their way before it cuts back to Rey and crew.

That would actually work really really well for an idea I had for my edit - if it was possible to overdub Pryde’s line “Tell him we’ve found our spy,” with something like “Prepare to depart” without it completely throwing off the lip sync, I wanted to put the Shooting Hux scene after Pryde’s conversation with Palpy. Then, Pryde basically goes off and shoots Hux in a coup, in order to combine the First Order with the Sith Fleet.

Your idea would really help to sell that!

Jar Jar, I may have actually found some rips. I can share them later. Theoretically, that would be better quality than a screen capture. (We’ll see once I download them.)

This is really great stuff. The Hoth and Tatooine shots could be easily recolored to use as Pasaana shots. Vader’s Castle, of course. Perhaps even the forest shots as establishing shots of the new Rebel base planet?

There’s also a shot of the torture chamber where Chewbacca is kept. It might work to have Rey see that when she senses Chewie is still alive.

I’m with Hal on this one. I think it would feel weird to imply that Chewie has been tortured - but not actually see Chewie either way - and they Rey be all smiley and happy. Huge tonal clash.

Although, it might be cool just to hear an echoey Chewie roar in the distance when Rey senses him, to involve the audience a little more in the realization.

Honestly, the solution I keep coming back to would be to comp a brand new shot of 3PO into the sequence. That may well be a pipe dream though - I personally have no idea what I’m doing with effects like this, so unless someone else is willing to lend a hand…?

The shot needs to slow down either way for which ever line is chosen. It’s too much information to process no matter how much the lines are whittled down. If we were to keep the line placement over that shot as is, it would be one of the quickest and most jarring scenes in this movie. And that’s saying A LOT for The Rise Of Skywalker, lol.

I was afraid of that. (Though, to be fair, the theatrical cut has 3PO literally blabbering incomprehensibly until the stormtrooper starts talking over him, so I don’t think noise overload is exclusive to our changes here.)

The problem with slowing, even with frame interpolation, is that it works really well when the camera is moving, but it becomes noticeable when the subjects are moving as well. (I did that in my “crash land” test from the other day, for example.) It’s just really hard to pull off when other things are supposed to be moving in the frame. For example, the stormtrooper gesturing and 3PO fidgeting in this scene. So, just to test, I slowed the footage here; but I don’t really think it works. It all just feels too “floaty” to me. I think we’d be better off trying to insert an extra shot of either 3PO or the stormtroopers from somewhere.

The only potential problem with using the Babu Frik line here is, again, timing. We only have about 4 seconds to play with total, unless we can come up with a way to artificially pad out the moment. The Babu line alone is - what…3 seconds long already?

I think we might just be able to squeeze everything in if we can cut 3PO’s line to only “It appears I am…a Resistance Spy!” This still needs a lot of clean up - it’s mainly just to figure out if the clip will even fit here timing-wise. Perhaps the trimmed line, and a slight speed increase if it still sounds too rushed? https://streamable.com/ajq1ba

axlanian, thank you so much for the audio clips! They sound great!

And Burbin, we may never agree on which dagger version is a logical nitpick and which version is a logical leap; but if we go with the new dagger translation, we’ll have to remove the location being “inscribed on this dagger” anyway, so it may be a moot point. I guess we’ll see what happens.

Heck, maybe Rey senses how important the dagger is when she picks it up and telegraphs that there’s something significant about it. You know, like later in the movie, when she senses how important the dagger is, despite already having the translation? “Rey doesn’t know for a fact that the dagger will be relevant again! She abandons her friends for what might be a wild goose chase! Plot hole!” The dagger’s stupid no matter what. “It’s stylistically designed to be that way, and you can’t undo that. But we can diminish the effects of it.”

As Burbin said, the only significant change I made in the new version is to tweak the dialogue from “It’s [definitely] the clue” to “This [must be] the clue.” Like I said last time, I don’t think it’s a huge logical leap that, when they’re looking for a Sith artifact by tracking a known Sith assassin, they find what is clearly a Sith artifact (based on the Sith language written on it), and deduce that it’s relevant to their Sith-centric mission. And they’re desperate for clues anyway. To me, that makes a lot more sense than someone programming 3PO with an illegal Sith to English dictionary, but then programming him to also not actually be able to use it, or to input the coordinates into the navigation computer himself, or something. The former is a reasonable deduction that anyone would make, especially given that the new dialogue line implies a level of logical reasoning behind it; the latter actually makes no sense.

I considered included the “Oh I have read it” line, but I ultimately decided against it. At that point, you’d have to convey to the audience that he read it, but he was unable to comprehend the writing. It felt like it was getting back into messy, convoluted territory, so I removed that line too.

Burbin said:

Also this new change doesn’t fully work since when Finn asks “Where’s the Wayfinder?” 3PO says “I am afraid I cannot tell you” instead of “I am afraid I don’t know since I’m unable to translate this inscription and it might not even contain the location of the Wayfinder but I just have such a good hunch this is what we need I’d be willing to sacrifice my entire existence for it”.

“I cannot tell you [the translation] because I’m literally unable to translate it.”

I dunno, it makes sense to me…

Alrighty, Dagger discovery scene! The last time I tried to edit this clip, there was some concern that 3PO would know that this Sith artifact is the one they’re after. So I did a bit more dialogue tinkerage - now he thinks that “this must be the clue Master Luke was looking for.”

https://streamable.com/iy6dpe

There might be some subtle sync issues with the echoes in the cave, but I didn’t really notice until I muted the center channel and cranked the volume up, so I think it will be okay?

(You know, whether or not the other Dagger Vision components can be figured out, I do think that this scene and the new Jannah scene really help to smooth over some of the internal logic of the film. At least, that’s my impression.)

At this point, my only question is how long we debate the merits of what must be changed in the v2 before we’re all satisfied (mostly) satisfied with it. The scope of the project keeps growing and growing, and it’s hard to keep up with what’s going to be in the “final” version.

There are still a few effects shots in development, so we have a bit of time. After that, I believe there are two other potential “large-scale” changes being discussed (and then an endless list of smaller ones, of course!):

Revamped Dagger Guide Concept (so that it no longer has literal coordinates):

Things needed:

  • Change 3PO’s lines when he picks up the dagger (I’m working on a cut, I’ll have something by tonight)
  • Change dialogue when The Gang™ meets Jannah, to avoid mentioning Babu (Potentially done)
  • Design a vision for Rey to see the Death Star when she picks up the dagger in Kylo’s Quarters
  • Potentially have a moment where Rey tells Finn and Poe about the dagger (I have an idea in mind that I’m actually really excited about. Stay tuned…)

Revamped Kijimi Sequence (to show that the galaxy is starting to revolt against the First Order):

  • Track in some anti-First Order propaganda posters (I believe some folks volunteered to design some pieces?)
  • Add some more crowd-sourced voice clips (Things like “For Skywalker!” “Down with the First Order!” “For the Republic/Resistance!” “Protect the children!” (Tying back in with the earlier “Harvest more of the galaxy’s young” comment), etc.)
  • Add some blaster and explosion sound effects in the distance.

And then whatever else Hal had on the docket for V2… (I think this is the most up-to-date list?)

Hal 9000 said:

I guess it’s about time for another “where are we” post. By my records, here’s everything currently outstanding. Things that, if they were suddenly all turned in, I would begin encoding:

  • Sherlockpotter’s idea to remove Lando line “Leia sent me a transmission” (I just haven’t done it yet)

  • Depict Kylo’s TIE with a different color stripe after his first one gets blowed up (poppasketti working on it)

  • Have Rey’s saber sputter or crap out a little at end of DSII duel (Movies Remastered working on)

  • Have both sabers spark and smoke like it’s Friday night after Palpatine gets blowed up (Movies Remastered working on, or perhaps is finished)

  • Pasaana puppet show with Luke being a legend (snooker and/or RogueLeader filming and compositing elements - will also need a vocal dub to replace the one or two lines with something about Skywalker)

  • Remaining footage of the crackly blue saber (I believe Movies Remastered is helming the shots that weren’t already done by kewlfish or Luka Frik)

  • Fixed Jedi haircut footage from jonh to then be run through by NeverAr for regrading

So clearly there’s still several things outstanding but they are being tracked and will all come together in time. For the thousandth time, you’re all awesome and it’s an ongoing privilege to steer us along.

I also had a few other smaller ideas that were pending; but this comment is already too long, so I’ll bring them up again a little later.
