I thought this film was largely a trainwreck when I saw it in the theater, but Hal9000 (with the help of many others) has once again managed to strip away the fat and produced a vastly superior film that is a worthier ending to the whole Skywalker Saga than the theatrical cut gave us. Bravo to everyone involved.

This was an amazing edit. The added force ghosts alone are a huge improvement. My only gripe is Rey's crackling lightsaber, but that's down to personal preference.

This edit blew me away! Hal9000 and the team of passionate faneditors managed to slow down this movie's frantic pace enough to actually develop its characters and internal logic. The result is a crisper, far more enjoyable film that closes out The Skywalker Saga in a much more appropriate way.

The addition of new FX shots and the restructuring of scenes does not feel jarring. The quality is professional and if one is unfamiliar with the theatrical cut, it's very easy to confuse this version for the original version of the film.

I've only seen the theatrical version once, and I hated it so much that I vowed to never watch it again. I said the only way I'd ever watch it was if a "Special Edition" of it was made that fixed some of the narrative issues and included Force Ghost Ben Solo at the end. When I found this edit, and read the changes made, I thought I'd give it a try.

I was not disappointed. I watched it 3 times in a week, and I consider this the true cut, the cut that should have been. (Well actually the cut that should have been was Ben and Rey living happily ever after, but I digress) Hal 9000 showed care and attention to detail in this edit, and it shows. I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who'd like to give TROS a second chance.

When I saw this movie in theaters it was at the Cinerama dome. I am a huge star wars nerd and have seen every big premiere at this amazing theater. When I had walked out of the theater my fandom was crushed. I had never turned so sour on a franchise so quickly. Now that's not saying that the first two movies in the sequel trilogy don't have their problems but overall they were respectable entries into the star wars franchise, but the rise of skywalker was such a complete and absolute mess that I found it hard to believe that someone could make a better edit using such distasteful source material. Well, I have never been happier to be proven wrong. You have done what I thought to be impossible. This is the cut I will show my children and am excited to delve into your other works. Amazing work. As Palpatine himself once said "We will watch your career with great interest!"
