Woohoo! Heres hoping you have no major hiccups and it gets released on May 4th! Can’t wait.
Well, with the Cassian Andor series coming out it will be good to have him survive the movie instead of knowing his fate will be him dying.
Feel free to keep posting ideas, and the discussion is great, but like I said, I’ve been pretty busy and am likely to only get busier (hint: my username)!
Congratulations Poppa, I have the two boys myself and their lots of fun…hard work as well and will definitely keep you busy. I’m sure they will follow in your footsteps and become awesome editors!
This sounds great…I’m a big fan of the EU (Legends) so color me interested.
I’m happy to check out any Workprints and give feedback.
I believe Poppa’s TLJ Rekindled has the most Palpatine foreshadowing in it.
As well as all of Hal’s Palpatine references you could also add the Palps “find me” on the radio that Kylo hears in the Crait base at the end of TLJ that Poppa added to add more foreshadowing so Palps doesn’t suddenly appear out of nowhere.
Also, just my own personal preferences if you are willing to add them in the edit:
- In TLJ, add Luke’s third lesson from the deleted scenes where Rey runs into the Caretaker nuns camp holding the lightsaber
- At the end of TLJ, instead of showing Rey moving the boulders from the cave (with only 2 days of training) have it appear as if Luke is using the force to remove the boulders and saving the resistance (maybe this is what kills him in the end).
The change list sounds good, were you planning to drop any hints of Palpatines return during the first 2 or 3 acts? Similar to Poppasketti’s TLJ Rekindled.
I was told that if you star the item, drag and drop it into a folder you create, and download the folder, it will work.
not having success with this so for
This video will help you out, as it did for me.
Thank you for this…it worked for me as well.
Cant wait to watch the edit. Might do a marathon this weekend…Restructured, Rekindled, Ascendant.
Well, after watching the BluRay version of the edit, Smudger has really outdone himself.
When watching the movie you can instantly tell it’s been edited by a pro. The love and attention to detail is real class and it really feels like you’re watching a true Star Wars movie. The way the transitions are implemented and it moves to the next episode is seamless.
If this had been released in cinemas as is, I probably would have went back and watched it two to three times.
It’s a shame we lost the Jawa scene but I understand why it had to be cut. It doesn’t really add to the overall story and Smudger was adamant on getting the edit to a proper movie length at 2.5 hours so I understand the sacrifice.
I highly recommend watching the edit even if you have seen Season 1 as it feels like a real sequel to ROTJ. Well done Smudger, you’re hard work has really created something awesome!
Woohoo…looking forward to the release. Appreciate the work you have put into this.
Looks great DigMod…will you be doing the same for Rouge One?
Also, I would love this edit to bring back 2 things from the original cut:
- The shot of Han being thrown up in the air after he is told he will be “flying in no time” by the Imperial officer.
- The machine gunner in the trenches that is killed on the planet Mimban. The main reason the crew come back for Han and Chewie is there missing the “muscle” for the heist job because of the machine gunners death so not sure why it was removed from the edit.

Here’s how it would be with just the TIEs shot.
Any chance of adding the Stormtroopers coming out of the troop carriers as well to see how it looks.
Well done on V2 and look forward to watching it soon with my son.
The only issue I have with BFII footage in Mustafer are when the troop carriers are landing as it’s look very “gamey”. My preferred option would be TIEs flying over head and then the storm troopers disembarking from the troop carriers as that appears as movie footage. This would mean cutting out both the troop carriers landing and the interior shot of the troop carriers.
Updated the change list.
The change list looks great…Looking forward to V2 release.

I think this might have gotten lost in the thread but does anyone else have any feedback on cutting the Finn scenes from Rey and Kylo’s duel and have it not cut away except for the Leia moment.
I can take a look at that and see how it plays.
JEDIT: There’s a few points that would either be awkward cuts it having to cut out a fair bit of the duel. I’ll probably leave Finn there, just with one or two fewer exclamations if “RAAAAAYYYY”.
And I can’t even remember, did anyone ever find a non-soundtrack version of Duel if the Fates that sounded like a good fit for TROS?
The edit Dominic did with the this version of the Duel of the Fates on the DSII is my favorite so far. If it can be incorporated into the final release would be fantastic.

Here’s a test of the ending, with pretty much everything except for a ghost for Ben.
Unfortunately the music used comes in right on the heel of a bombastic conclusion to the Resistance theme, so it’s a shame it can’t be a bit more teasing and gradual as it comes in like the original scene’s music.
It’s still synced to the original, so it’s be easy to ditch in favor of the original.

To be fair, everyone’s always been an asshole to 3PO. “Shut him up or shut him down!” I do think it’s a little awkward how mild this line reading is compared to Poe’s reaction though. You’d expect 3PO to be more hysterical.
I dunno what it is about TROS, I just feel really sorry for 3PO. Everyone seemed really extra nasty to him this episode. 100% didn’t earn the “One last look… at my friends!” line. It’s so being cut. 😃
After 3PO says “One last look… at my friends!” it would be cool to have a short montage of Luke, Han and Leia from the Original Trilogy. This would make is appear 3PO is accessing his memory banks of Luke, Han and Leia instead.

THE RISE OF SKYWALKER
Flames of rebellion burn across the galaxy. The tyrannical First Order has retaliated by attacking any planetary system that supports their enemy.
As Rey, sole heir to the Jedi, continues her training, General Leia Organa sends her brave agents across the stars to unite the disparate worlds in the name of Resistance.
Meanwhile, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren has traveled to Mustafar, chasing whispers of a hidden power that would allow him to destroy any threat to his rule…
My main issue with the film is that the story is never allowed to breathe, characters don’t have time to reflect, Rey doesn’t even acknowledge that she’s a Palpatine. Kylo’s redemption and death are merely skimmed over. It’s just run run run.
Idir_hh, have you read the novelization if TROS?
I’m a few chapters in and there is a lot more dialogue and the character motivations are much better explained and it doesn’t feel as rushed. I know it won’t improve the movie but it’s an enjoyable read of what the movie could have been. I have hope we get an extended cut coz Chris Terrio’s BvS got one a few month after release.
This showed some great editing skills. I really liked how you added Kuill repairing IG early on. Looking forward to the final product.
Man, hard too keep up on the discussion, but I’m with Dominic on this on. It would be a damn shame to lose that musical score when Kylo is flying through the Nebula. I think it’s need to be established that Exogel is completely hidden planet early on and the Wayfinder needs to show the audience how Kylo found it.
Meanwhile, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren has traveled to Mustafar, chasing whispers of a rumored Imperial fleet that would allow him to destroy any threat to his power…
Hmmm…not sure about this. Wouldn’t it be better to mention a hidden clue to an unknown Sith Planet aka Exogel instead of an Imperial Fleet. As Kylo did not know about the hidden fleet until he gets to the planet. The Wayfinders gives direction to a
hidden a Sith planet that is not on any known maps.
Anyone thought of removing the Kylo and Rey kiss? Is it possible? It just doesn’t seem right. More like Disney’s insistence on catering to both sides of the fanbase. Kylo is not a redeemable character. His arc was always going to end in death. And Rey was at his throat for most of the movie. So why kiss now? It just does not work.
I’m also rather confused about Poe and Finn’s rivalry. The seemed to have great chemistry in the the last two movies. A great friendship in the making. And now they are bickering at each other over petty things? I don’t buy it. Someone please convince me otherwise.
This edit may be for you as it addresses a lot of your complaints
Just be aware you need to watch TLJ - Anti Cringe Cut prior for this edit to work.
I have requested a download link yesterday to the new TLJ Definitive Anti-Cringe Cut and TROS Anti Cringe Cut. The TLJ -DACC has a new ending with Kylo Ren finding Palps in Exogol. I haven’t had a response back as of yet.
I have a download link to the original TLJ Anti Cringe Cut if you want it.
So were u able to squeeze in Bill Burrs character by any chance? I think he is returning to Season 2.
