Brief Synopsis:
Rise of the Rebellion is a light fanfix of what I consider to be the second best Star Wars movie currently released. This edit differs from others in that it does not drastically reduce the length, narrative focus of the movie or add any John Williams cues. Rise of the Rebellion seeks to restore heroes to the movie by slightly shifting their motivations and actions to produce a story that is filled with brave heroes and less distractions.
Intention:
Rogue One is my favorite Star Wars movie right after ESB. I found the planet title cards to be extremely distracting. We never had them before, why do we need them now? The story should drive itself, not the location. That's what DK's illustrated encyclopedias are for ;)

This edit is intended to clean up the few subjective mishaps in the film and present a narrative that isn't merely trying to be Star Wars, but IS. My main objectives were to add a crawl, remove planet cards, rescore certain scenes (with EU and Giacchino cues) make Chirrut less Kung Fu, Bodhi slightly calmer and more confident, making Cassian's demons internal and reducing Saw to a Lor San Tekka-Esque character.

Editing Details:
I began with the idea of simply adding a crawl and reducing some of Chirrut and Bodhi. As usual, the community challenged and inspired me to look at the film differently and to attempt edits that I had not intended to do (removing Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba). This edit also introduced me to Vegas' secondary color correction tool. This was used to color correct Tarkin and Leia's skin tones as well as removing Vader's red eyes from his meeting with Krennic and his surveying of the space battle. Cropping and sharpening tools used to remove the planetary title cards.
Cuts and Additions:
- New title cards
- Custom Crawl (this will be my Episode III of the prequel trilogy, so it indicates that)
- Custom pan down and Krennic shuttle flying towards Lah'mu
- Removed Saw opening up hatch to find Jyn (we only see the hatch begin to open)
- Removed Rogue One Title card, now hard cuts to Jyn waking up as if she was dreaming
- Removed Cassian's introduction scene
- Removed Bodhi's introduction scene
- Cropped scene to remove planet card during Wobani rescue (added sharpening to film)
- Cropped Yavin and Rebel Alliance planet cards to remove text (added sharpening to film)
- Removed second Bodhi scene where he meets Saw
- Color corrected Tarkin's skin tones
- Removed Bor Gullet
- Added tie sfx to transition from K2 to Jedha pan shot
- Removed Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba
- Added Battlefront Imperial track to Rebel ambush
- Shortened Chirrut's acrobatics and removed his "is your foot alright" line and human shield antics
- Removed the cut to Jyn and Cassian to connect the continuous shot where Baze fires at the stormtroopers
- Removed Chirrut's "are you kidding me" line
- Color corrected Tarkin's skin tones during Jedah DS firing sequence
- Color corrected Vader's eyes during his meeting with Krennic
- Cropped Eadu planet card to remove text (added sharpening to film)
- Rescored Rebel Alliance meeting with Force theme
- Removed Bodhi's stuttering when asked who is stealing the imperial ship
- Cropped Scarrif planet card to remove text (added sharpening to film)
- Color corrected Tarkin's skin tones
- Cropped scene with R2 and 3P0 to remove them from the shot and reworked surround track to eliminate their dialogue
- Rescored Star Destroyer collision (Scrambling the Rebel Fleet' airplane collision/crash sfx)
- Color corrected Tarkin's skin tones
- Color corrected Vader's eyes when he is watching the Rebel fleet be massacred
- Trimmed Vader's awkward hand gesture of choking rebel soldier and then motioning to fling him to the side. (it just looks too fan filmy for me)
- Color corrected Leia's skin tones
- Fixed audio volume transition into credits
- Added custom edited/fanedited credits
- Added grouped name credits to shorten credits and have them end on the the musical finale (the original doesn't for some reason)
- Added custom title cards to ending

DigModiFicaTion comes through again - You don't even realize the small changes that make a film better. I'm sure studio heads all have their notes and things to add in order to make this work for this more marketable, but DigModiFicaTion isn't constrained by those limits thankfully

Rouge one is perhaps my top 3 star wars movie. It puts the WAR in STAR WARS!
With this edit it is even more focused and exciting! No cringy references or backstories, just pure action adventure with likable characters.
But i think there is more to be cut to make it even more enjoyable.

flawless cuts, flawless audio and video quality!
This is my go to version!

Totally forgot to review your project on R1.
Simply put: i loved it, so much better pacing, no silly jokes or redundant dialogues/scenes. I liked R1 in the original version, but yours is awesome.
Thank you for that!

I loved this edit. I watched it today for the second time and every edited or cut scene makes sense or was redundent or distracting in the first place in the original version. In my very personal opinion, I would have liked it, if the battle of Scarif would have been cut down more, since there is a lot of fighting going on with noone I care about in the scenes and it feels like it's been dragging on for too long. There are some nice effects, but there is also a lot of random shooting, firing and exploding that does not add a lot to the story itself. I lost a bit of patience and care in these scenes. But besides that personal preference, this edit is great and forever another fixture in my star wars saga collection, thank you again!

Pros:
- 3rd act is the best part of the film, and it is mostly intact from the original.
- The re-scoring! Editor feels the moment, and adjust it as such.
- Color correction is well done. Although some might prefer the original.

Cons:
- Boring character stories and arcs mostly left intact.
- Saw Gerrera... just his character... ugh!
- The Rebellion/Resistance comes over as a bunch of whiners.

Conclusion:
In my honest opinion, the Fan Edit "The Battle of Scarif" is a better fit for this movie. I just can't get through the first 2 acts of this movie. This is not the fault of the Editor, but of the Creators of the movie itself. The characters are bland and boring, the story is to convenient and nonsensical, and last but not least, this movie didn't need to exist. It's a badly explained plot that just derails the Epic Battle in the final act. The editor did his best to make the movie watchable, and for some it has become just that... watchable. That is not enough for me.
