reducing Starkiller Base to just that: a base.
Yes. Or maybe, just maybe, the FO capital planet?
It’d be kind of anticlimactic to destroy the enemy captital in the first film. Besides, it didn’t look like an actual city. It seemed to be only a military base. Then again, for all we know, military bases might be the closest the First Order has to cities, and maybe all their “citizens” are conscripted into the army. Anyway, I just don’t see the point in making it their capital.
I would like to add cacti to Jakku and maybe water to make it more distinct from Tatooine.
That would be great! Or, maybe, just changing the sand and/or sky colour could be enough to make Jakku different.
I had also considered changing the sky color, but I didn’t think it was possible, given that chroma key couldn’t do it (I tried). I don’t think we’re gonna keyframe a third of the film to change Jakku’s sky color. I figured adding things like cacti would be more feasible.
Han’s character can be fixed extremely easily by making him a Resistance general who does smuggling on the side, and was sent to find out what happened to Poe. If you remove the Rathtar scene like so many seem to, you could even make him a fulltime general with no smuggling.
How do you make him search for Poe? I don’t recall him even speak about or interact with him.
He just needs to say he’s looking for a certain Resistance member.
I don’t see any problem with what happened to Luke’s character, and while I do agree it sucks to be back to the “last Jedi” status quo, there’s not much we can do about it.
Well… I’m wondering if it’s possible to move the Luke Vs. Kylo duel at the end of VII, making Luke to be actually there. And then having the Rey training in VIII, as it is but before she make any use of the Force. Of course this isn’t easy…
That’s an interesting idea, but I’m pretty indifferent to it. Besides, it’s not really doable.
Luke had no problem lifting his lightsaber from the snow in ESB. I agree that performing a mind trick is on a whole other level, and thus should be cut, but that’s about it.
Luke already had some sort of training with Ben a the beginning of TESB. Before meeting Ben he wasn’t able to do any of the Force related stuff. So should be Rey before meeting Luke.
Oh yeah, I’m sure one session of blindfolded blaster bolt deflection is all you need to reach the skill level of a padawan.
