- The intro crawl text changed slightly to include that Snoke has been training "his apprentice Kylo Ren" and that the rebels are certain that "young Rey will find Luke Skywalker and with his help restore a spark of hope to the fight".
- The first battle against the Dreadnought is much more fluid and intense now and not broken up by silly jokes
- Moved the scene where Leia tells C3PO to "whipe that nervous expression off his face" to right after the Dreadnought cannons move to point at the rebel cruiser making it a better fit
- Although General Hux is still not the most intimidating bad guy, at least now he is spared the humiliation by his superiors in front of his fellow officers, restoring some of his dignity and the appearance of him being a respected General.
- The first time we see Luke and Rey, he is already holding the light saber in his hands, showing us that at least some time has gone by since the ending of TFA.
- Instead of throwing away the light saber, Luke gives it back to Rey and tells her that he's sorry before walking off, making her confused expression right after, more believable.
- Leia dies in the second assault of the First Order
- Luke has a vision of Leia floating in space after he reconnects with the force
- Teleportation of matter like water via force call is not possible anymore (shown when Kylo wipes his face to reveal that water from Ahch- To island was transported to him). Now it looks like he's wiping away some sweat after his intense conversation with Rey.
- Luke now seems more skilled in the fight with Rey. He doesn't fall down, after she hits him on the head the first time but immediately turns around to stop her second strike at which point he has a force vision of Rey tempted by the dark side and hears Master Yoda's warning voice telling him not to attack her. This results in him just dodging her hits and staying on the defensive. The one time he falls down now, he breaks his fall with the force, showing us that he could have easily beaten her if he wanted to. This changed scene now also implies that if he had attacked her, he would have probably driven her away even further, thus serving as a good callback later when she refuses to join Kylo.
- The final flashback featuring Luke and Kylo has been defused to the point where Luke acts not completely out of character anymore. The following lines have been removed: "He would bring destruction, pain, death, and the end of everything I love because of what he will become. And for the briefest moment of pure instinct, I thought I could stop it. It passed like a fleeting shadow. And I was left with shame and with consequence."
Instead after he says "Snoke had already turned his heart..." we see flashes of Kylo (from Rey's lightsaber-vision in TFA) already wearing his mask, walking towards us and killing someone with his red lightsaber. We return to a shocked Luke who continues with "...and the last thing I saw were the eyes of a frightened young boy who's master had failed him". This changes the meaning of the whole scene. Luke failed Kylo because he allowed Snoke to turn his apprentice while he was under his care and not because he tried to kill him in his sleep. Also Luke does not turn on his light saber except to block Kylo's strike after he consequently attacks Luke.
- When Poe asks Admiral Holdo, if she has a plan and notices that she is fueling up the transport ships, it now seems like she gives in an tells him what the mission is. When they leave her alone on the cruiser and Poe leaves with the transport ships, it looks like they are working together.
- To showcase that there is a montage with Commander D'Acy explaining their escape plan to the rebel base on Crait to Poe (and the audience).
- The reveal that Rose is Paige's sister comes much later in the last act on Crait when she touches the second half of the medallion as she is flying towards the large cannon, creating a better connection/contrast to the beginning of the movie. Her sister died in battle, she survives it.
- The Millennium Falcon enters the battle on Crait gracefully and with style. The first thing we see is it's shadow and not an exaggerated triple kill shot
- When Poe gives up on attacking the big laser cannon on Crait and tells Finn to pull back, it now looks like he is following his order
Luke makes his last stand with a green lightsaber instead of the blue one making the reveal, that he is a force projection, more surprising
- Rey does not appear to be jealous of Rose anymore. Instead she seems to be happy for Finn.
- We get another good look at the broken lightsaber before the Millennium Falcon enters hyperspace for the last time. The kyber crystal of the saber starts glowing faintly...
- There is a cut to black instead of a fade to white before the last scene starts
- The movie ends with Luke pulling himself up and looking out at the sunset (small black dot in front of the sun removed), coming full circle. He looked at it as an infant in "Revenge of the Sith", as a young man in "A New Hope" and finally as an old Jedi Master. Hope fills his eyes. He is alive after all...
I enjoyed this movier far more than the original. You removed almost all cringe from the original movie, only a very few humorous shots left. Leaving out sublot was done greatly. Your take on Leias was intresting, but i have not made up my mind on if it the right way to go for me. i had some issiue with Leia it felt a little jagged in story and the dices threw me off in the end. but it may also be in my mind i used to the original. Technically it was very good considiering the major reconstructing taking away huge amount of content and make it wacthable without sacrifices the narrative story. Nitpicking i saw only a couple cuts that i noticed something done with the film but not sure anyone who doesnt edit movies themself would have noticed. I get to say "i told you so" to my friend that there was a watchable movie in there somewhere if you trimmed away all the bad stuff. Very good fanedit in my mind. Keep up the good work.
I cannot compare it to the original because I couldn't get through it unfortunately. But I was able to get through this edit and that's saying something. I removed some points from narrative because I didn't get the reason why Rose (Had to looki it up) was even there in the first place. Some friends told me she is supposed to be Finn's love interest but there is none of that here as far as I can tell and it feels like she gets some random screen time for no reason. Also some of the cheesy lines and jokes remain but there is nothing to be done about that because they are part of the story. However this is a re-edit of the original film so there is nothing more to be expected unless you want all the drawbacks. All in all I enjoyed it, but I can say that I most probably won't be watching the new one when it comes out unless there is a fan edit of it...
This is by far the most complete and enjoyable edit to date of this movie. I had to watch it twice, once alone and then again with some family. I couldnt help but smile at the end...finally somebody got it right. It felt like a completely different movie and the xtra garbage scenes that were edited out were some of the same choices I wanted to make if I was to do my own edit. I'm sharing this with everyone I know who had issues with The Last Jedi...a few of them said it couldnt be saved. Boy was they wrong. DonKamillo...I tip my hat to you sir. If we're ever at a pub at the same place all drinks are on me.
SIDE NOTE: I was having issues signing into my KoDomino account so I'm using my Ko_Domino one for reviews.
To say this edit is better than the original, is an understatement. It's amazing how much better the movie is once you take out the obnoxious material. While I still don't like certain elements (Rey's parents, Luke still acting OOC and Admiral Ackbar receiving an underwhelming death), I still enjoyed this almost infinitely more than the version released in cinemas (even if the deleted scene of Poe telling Finn what happened while he was in a coma was pretty pointless.
Having been left feeling very deflated by the Force Awakens I have yet to see another Star Wars film in the cinema. Getting the Blu-Rays and trying to avoid spoilers has been my preferred strategy. When the Last Jedi was released I managed to avoid spoilers, but there was a lot of talk about someone called Rose that I kept seeing on my social media. I get the Blu Ray in March last year and I am aghast at the film. This is supposed to be Star Wars? It took me three attempts to get through the film!
However, having watched Don Kamillo's edit I can say that this is now my go-to version. Don has removed a lot of the rubbish, leaving the story to focus more on Rey and Luke, and to a lesser extent the Rebels' escape. The only real casualty of Don's narrative is Finn, as most of his story is tied up with the worthless Rose (Who thankfully now is more or less an extra). More scenes with Poe are also a bonus (Glad that his "mutiny" scene is gone).
The look and sound of this edit are spot on. The new music additions don't jar, and logos at the start and the end are priceless (They certainly got a laugh when we watched this last night). Thanks to Don for polishing a turd in to what is now a decent film. Also we spotted the Wilhelm scream.
