After watching this movie in theaters, I wasn't sure if I would ever rewatch it. But upon finding this edit, I figured I would try to rewatch it. This fanedit makes some great changes to make this movie feel both planned, and the end to the saga. I was very happy with many of the trims and cuts (such as light skipping, some awkward jokes/one-liners, and unnecessary dialogue).
My favorite part of this version is the added VFX. The scene with the addition of the force ghosts at the end gives me chills, something that Disney was unable to do. Overall, the movie is a lot better, and this is the only version I will be watching!

Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant is a vast improvement.
The effort and work and collaboration in this edit is to be commended. I'm blown away by the work put into making this movie a coherent story, and while a lot of aspects of Episode IX are unfixable, this manages to make the absolute best out of the worst situation.

This got to be the first time I read so many changes done to a movie with so little time cut or added! The amount of work done to this edit is incredible.

I didn't like this movie, almost at all, and I was very reluctant in watching an edit with only 4 minutes removed from the film. To give an example, the previous edit I watched was the "Anti-Cringe Cut" which removed 45 minutes. That's how much I disliked this movie. When I watched the 'Ascendant' though, the edit was so good that it made me question if I indeed did not like the original movie that much or maybe it grew on me the last four years that have passed! And then I read the list of changes, I didn't read them before watching this, and I realized that it wasn't that the movie grew on me, it was the edit that was that good. Which is also a testament to how excellent it was technical-wise. Granted, some core stuff from the plot still bothered me, but it was much more digestible now.

So, I definitely recommend this edit to anyone who can accept the fact that all the core plot elements stay, but want to see a much more polished version of the movie! For more aggressive edits check the "Anti-Cringe Cut" by DonKamillo, although it has many problems in my opinion, and the "Final Order" by Spence.

Thank you HAL9000 for all your hard work, thanks to anyone who read my review and may the force be with you!

One can only do so much to improve a flawed product..... What Hal did with this one is overall pretty solid; the most embarrassing moments and lines are cut/replaced and the story is more streamlined, with some clever additions along the way.

Granted, the main narrative choices of the base film remain and are kinda difficult to accept at times (I can accept the return of Palpatine, but not the fact that Rey is his granddaughter), but as I said, there are limits when it comes to fixing a bad film.

Overall, it's a solid improvement over the theatrical version; good job, Hal.
