I put this together as a little experiment to see if it could work. The idea was to pretend (obviously) that the Vader scene didn’t happen at the end of Rogue One, but rather Vader was the first onto the Tantive after the ship was taken into custody.
So it goes:
-Star Destroyer blast hits the Tantive
-We see rebels inside the Tantive running from explosion inside
-A rebel shuts down their main reactor (insert exposition by our fav droids)
-this causes the door to get stuck as the ship is being taken up into the star destroyer
-the rebels hear an explosion
-Rebel hits button to close the door
-the rebels prepare for second wave (stormtroopers and Vader again all ANH)
I’ve seen so many RO ending/ANH beginning mash-ups online, and they are all pretty similar, so I really just wanted to try something new. Let me know what you guys think!
