A very recommended edit indeed! I quite liked the the theatrical release, but this is fanedit far superior. The cuts were seamless and helped improve issues in the narrative that bothered me - first and foremost the numerous and annoying scenes involving Forrest Whitaker. Thank you so much, DigModiFicaTion, for taking the time to create this wonderful fanedit.
Additionally, as others commented before me, the visual and audio editing are superb, and in some places even better than in the theatrical release (e.g., Tarkin and Leia).
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!
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
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!
