Brief Synopsis:
The Expanded Edition aims to extend The Last Jedi to its maximum possible length with finished effects. Using a few existing fanedits, this incorperates just about everything clean in the kitchen sink.

Eleven new, alternate and extended scenes have been masterfully restored added back into Episode VIII with 10 more minutes of footage.
I wanted to create the longest possible cut of Episode VIII, as I wasn't quite satisfied with ebumm's edit, in the way a few scenes were incorperated into the film. So I made my own extended cut of the film witha few unique bits.
Additional Notes:
This actually has 5.1 surround, unlike many of my edits. There is also a workprint version of this cut, running at 2:46 that adds the alternate opening, extended Fathier chase and the alternate Phasma fight with Finn. This all has unfinished VFX, so it is available upon request.
Other Sources:
- The Last Jedi Blu-Ray: For the film and it's deleted scenes
- The Last Jedi – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: A few tracks to bridge scenes here and there were used
- ebumms' Extended Edition was used for the Canto Bight audio, however all the video was replaced with the lossless BR footage
- poppasketti's Rekindled/Recalibrated was used for some of the transitions between the "Not Much of a Sewer" and the "Luke Mourn" scene as well as the "Where We Belong" scene
Special Thanks:
ebumm's for making his Extended Edition, as I've borrowed a few elements from it, including the amazingly extended Canto Bight sequence
poppasketti for making his Rekindled/Recalibrated cut that cut together a few deleted scenes in a way that I was a big fan of
