Full disclosure: I was involved with the approval process for this one, but my input was minimal; just a few suggestions here and there.

With "The Rogue One Arc", NFBisms presents Rogue One as a three part series in the sonic style of Andor. It is, in my opinion, completely effective, with some exceptionally natural music placement. For me, this is the ONLY way to watch Rogue One going forward.

AUDIO/VIDEO QUALITY

Essentially perfect.

AUDIO EDITING

Some may be challenged by the 2.0 presentation, but for me, all that matters is what my two ears experience. The soundstage is wide, the dialog clear, and the music well balanced.

VISUAL EDITING

No notes, but the episode recaps seem professionally done, and the montage for Jyn in the first episode is amazing. If you're planning on creating this kind of recap in your edit, studying what NFBisms has done here could be a good starting point.

NARRATIVE

The film lends itself to a three part narrative. The story isn't tilted far enough to Cassian for it to feel like an "Andor" story, and Jyn still doesn't get enough focus, but this is a challenge with the source material, not the edit.

ENJOYMENT

I've always liked Rogue One, but it never felt quite right. The music is, at times, cringe-inducing for me (the bombastic, "I'm not John Williams, but here's some trumpets" score often feels tone-deaf and disconnected from the story). This edit completely transforms the experience for me.

Strongly recommend, even if you've seen Rogue One a thousand times.
