Well, I don’t plan to remove Phasma or the fight between her and Finn, so there’s nothing to worry about there.
The Luke Jakku quip is something I’ve hemmed and hawed over but I think it’s just not something that we would have seen in the OT, but that we have seen in the ST. So I’d prefer to keep Luke away from it since he doesn’t do it much. The reed gag later on seems more consequential and part of the point being made, so it feels different to me.
Whatever happens, I’ll get a solid workprint out before IX for anyone interested in having it for a countdown viewing.
😉 I will make sure to show V3 to my cousin that has never seen star wars but wants to watch all of it before IX
