Except that the kids playing with the Luke doll are reenacting the Crait “duel” between Luke and Ben.

I can’t recall the dialogue during this scene. Do they reference it specifically? Even if so, it might be interesting to see this beforehand as a foreshadowing of how Luke literally steps into the form of his own legend.

Yeah, that might work. I’m actually partly wrong though, they’re talking about his standoff against the walkers before the duel, not the duel itself.

I think they’re speaking another language, but the toy setup is clearly the walker standoff.

It wouldn’t have been the first time Luke has taken on walkers. 😃

JEDIT: And honestly, it seems like the story of how Luke took down a walker single-handedly would be a more widely-known legend, considering it was witnessed by the Rebellion that would have gone on to rule the galaxy and that it would have had decades to spread and grow.

One thing I was wondering after seeing the film is whether or not Luke’s line “if you strike me down in anger, I will always be with you. Just like your father.” was meant to imply that Ben is literally being haunted by the voice/image/presence of Han. Only because that line was so much like Kenobi’s line which resulted in him literally becoming a ghost.

Ok, cus I was thinking of it wasn’t a metaphorical thing that maybe adding a VO of Han once or twice in the film could be neat.

Further thoughts on changing The Force Awakens to serve TLJ, I could place some of the footage of the Raddus going to hyperspace into the destruction of the Hosnian system.
Hosnian Destruction
It might be going too far to show Holdo staring out of the window at the approaching lasers, but even placing the TLJ ships in the distance going to hyperspace in this shot would help.

If we see Holdo in this sequence, then the only dialogue necessary for the previous scene would be ‘General, the Republic is scrambling the fleet to assist us’.

Another idea for the crawl, this time focusing on Finn:

The galaxy stands at the brink.
With the Republic destroyed,
General Leia Organa has fled
into uncharted space with the
last of their once-mighty fleet,
awaiting the return of the
legendary Luke Skywalker.

Feverish from his wounds,
former Stormtrooper Finn
tries in vain to warn Leia
of a hidden peril, claiming
that Snoke’s mighty warship
contains a device which can
track them past the furthest
star.

Disobeying the orders of
his superior, Commander
Poe Dameron has sent Finn
with a medic to Canto Bight,
where a mysterious gambler
may have knowledge of this
insidious device…

Your alternate crawl sounds good, but I always find it hard to tell without seeing it in motion. Though I’m not sure about “awaiting the return of the legendary Luke Skywalker”, I’d go with something on reigniting the rebellion here instead. Also, I’d say farthest rather than furthest in paragraph two.

Your idea for Holdo in TFA is interesting. If you could make it work, I think a close up of Holdo (something like with Korr Sella on the planet) would be great.

I really like the idea of putting Holdo/TLJ ships in TFA.

One thing I’m curious about with this restructure that moves the Leia/Resistance stuff to later is the scene where Snoke gets mad at Ren for losing to Rey. I think that needs to be the first scene of the restructure because it is a direct follow up to the scene in TFA where Snoke told Hux to bring him Kylo Ren so he can finish his training.
