Btw, am I the only one that had to do a double take at 1:17:47 and then google it when thinking that was Donald Sutherland standing on the ground in front of the trenches who raises up the binoculars? Only just noticed how much of a doppelganger that guy is for DS, so much so I thought it really might have been him as an extra for a little bit.

Also the new VFX is very well done, I’m amazed at how well the throne room guards having lightsabers works, an instant improvement on the original and I find it far more threatening of a fight than with their original weapons. The one instance where the saber becomes a whip is a tad odd but it doesn’t really detract at all from the scene.

The fix to give Luke his green ROTJ saber during his standoff with Kylo is also well done though the close ups are a tad shakey (literally at times LOL) and it does almost appear more 2D than 3D so the effect isn’t perfect and could use some additional work (if possible, I’m not experienced in VFX one bit) but I imagine the overall affect is probably fairly convincing if you’re not expecting / looking for it.
