It is so crazy how much better every scene feels in this cut.
The lack of the theatrical release’s very overbearing at times music lets each scene breath and brings out acting nuances I’ve never noticed before. Not to mention the very subtle moment to moment editing changes you’ve made. So many lines are removed, or muted, or moved around. This edit is such a triumph of recontextualization. Instead of feeling like Cassian is stuck in a Star Wars movie, it feels like he’s finally where he belongs.
This is how I’ll revisit/ show people Rogue One from now on.
Thank you so much for your work!
