With hindsight, I probably will end up rendering my Last Jedi fanedit “non-canon” in my trilogy and just leave that middle portion alone (you can pretend Han is alive throughout it though) and focus on book-ending it with “The Ford Awakens” and “Rise of Skywalker”
Here’s my outine
-Movie opens the same way, only with Palpatine’s fortnite message playing over the massacre that Kylo leads
-After The Emperor talks with Kylo, cut to the Falcon arriving at the first port of call in the Wayfinder quest with Rey and the others. Cut out Rey training.
-Cut a reference to Han being killed when Rey and Kylo bridge minds
-Cut Rey and Kylo’s lightsabre duel in Kylo’s quarters.
-Try to keep Chewie’s fate unknown to the audience until Rey senses him on Kylo’s Destroyer
-During the Death Star duel, Leia contacts Ben, Rey wounds him, Leia doesn’t die. Felt unnecessary to drain her life force just to give him a phone call
-As noted above, cut C3-PO getting his memory restored. CONSEQUENCES
-Cut Kylo entirely from the final battle with the Emperor. Now when Rey defies Palpatine and puts her sabre away, he tries to cut her down in anger, the Jedi tell her to rise and she destroys him
-Conclude the film with Rey and her friends heading out into a free galaxy, Leia knows Rey will return one day once she figures herself and her powers out, they embrace one final time
-End the movie on Kylo at the Death Star ruins reuniting with Han and throwing away his lightsabre. The Skywalker line lives on and is redeemed
Any thoughts on this?
