Great Edit!
The sequels are a mess if you really think about them and are not made to watch all three in one or two sittings right after each other. But this edit made it possible and the story more cohesive. The main characters Rey, Poe, Finn and Kylo get their best sides shown. I even Like Finn now after seeing this edit! The bond between them all got me more invested in their journey together. And I was even smiling during some jokes that are left in there.

The hints of Palpatine in this edit is a little too subtle I think. You get it in visions before TROS which is nice, but I expected a little more to really bind all the movies together. Of course still better than the original which had no hints of palpatine!

The edit is divided in two parts, That made the TLJ part feel really slow because after the end of VII there is 1h of runtime. Sorry but I had to take a break when it felt right. The breaks might have happened when the originals ended. Still worked though!

This edit is FAST, EMOTIONAL and EPIC. My go to edit for sure!
flawless editing and cohesive story!
The quality is great! But I only give 9s or 10s to 4k and/or surround sound these days.

About three-fourths of the way through my watch, I realized what I really wanted to see was 'The Last Jedi Awakens', as the first two films worked a heck of a lot better together than Rise of Skywalker did. I *loved* the edits done to The First Awakens and The Last Jedi segments, but nothing changed my mind: there's no getting around the avalanche of head-scratcher 'story-telling' decisions made in ROS, no matter the thoughtfulness of the excisions made by the platoon of fan-editors behind it. Nevertheless, this two-parter works pretty well considering the limitations of what it had to do.

Consider my 'Enjoyment' score a 8/10 for the TFA and TLJ combination, but a -1 for ROS.

But regarding what I loved, just to mention a few: the removal of the superweapon subplot, the addition of the Han Solo dice scene, the Luke Skywalker Han Solo grief scene, the removal of the useless Canto Bight sequence, and the removal of the wheel-spinning Poe Dameron/Admiral Holdo subplot. Distractions/redundancies removed, it was easier to see more of the vibe the original filmmakers were going for.

The video and audio editing really helps bring out the beauty of the films. Whatever flaws the ST has, at least the films always look good and sound good. Not much that can be done to smooth the transition between TLJ and ROS, but the attempt here is inspired.

If you enjoyed Rise of Skywalker and the first two films as well, you'll really like this edit.

Wow, this edit was outstanding, and this is coming from one who dislikes the disney sequels intensely.
The light trimes to dialogue to remove the cringe throughout makes the leads of Kylo and Rey so much more likable, the cutting of redundant scenes such as the entire removal the Finn and Rose subplot, no super weapons and adding foreshadowing throughout was perfect.
Some minor critiques, by having starkiller not destroy the republic, its absence is felt a lot and if possible an explanation needs to be stated as to why it remains neutral, perhaps when the First Order says that they're just people, when referring to Lando's fleet, they could say it's the republic! Also a lack of 5.1 sound is keenly felt. I also think this edit would work if broken up into episodes like a TV show then you could have a mini crawl to explain things that cannot be edited in.
But all in all I'll say this edit is the one I'll watch next time I feel the need to watch the sequels.
Thank you for making this.
