I’m all for anything that allows the audience’s intuition to function without being chloroformed by retcon-heavy canon stuff being hurled in reaction like so much orangutan diarrhea.
I don’t care so much about the immediate canon surrounding TROS, since it’s just antibodies rejecting a transplanted organ. I just don’t want to take radical swipes that would make this edit not at all function with the eventual 12-novel Luke Skywalker series I’ll hopefully get to read.
The good news on that front, is that Luke has never seen the Dagger before - let alone a Wayfinder - and doesn’t seem to know that the MacGuffin he’s after is a Dagger at all. Meaning we can do whatever we want with the knife, and unless that Luke Skywalker series decides to ret-con the original TROS itself, we’re in the clear.
Now, if you’re holding out for Ochi: A Star Wars Story, the Sequel-Prequel dramedy directed by Paul Feig and starring Tom Hardy as Ochi, well…you might be a little disappointed.
Also, does anyone know where I could find some “C-3PO” moving sound effects? You know, that whirring noise that his limbs make? It was in the center channel underneath the dialogue that I removed, and I’d like to add it back.
