I don’t feel the need to make a point of bringing Finn down much.
I’m hesitant to remove the Finn having something to say thing because it’s a good chunk of what implies he’s Force sensitive. I already used poppasketti’s Rey voiceover in TLJ to tie into this even. And I find it awkward to cut out the reference to this in the sandy underworld.
We don’t really see any birds or porgs on Ach-to so it feels sort of weird to add foley for something not even there. Maybe they migrated South to an evil island.
I removed Rey’s line (“…really difficult”) rather than Finn’s (“we just landed”), since Finn doesn’t speak for a while otherwise.
And I added a little more of the DOTF from Solo to bridge more smoothly into the existing score.
