Of course, we all know of the mysterious exchange in ESB/ROTH when Obi-Wan remarks, “That boy is our last hope,” to which Yoda replies, “There is another.” In this video, they arranged the clips to imply that, when Yoda says that line, the “other” is in fact, Rey.

This is an interesting idea that I hadn’t seen mentioned elsewhere

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it, but I did toy with the idea of Rey being the daughter of Luke’s long lost sister, whose tombstone Luke finds on Ach-To. I decided it made way more sense to make Vader the other and make Rey nobody, though.

The ST is based on the canon that Luke and Leia are sisters, so any removal of Leia’s powerful destiny would also have to keep her relation to Luke for the ST to function.

It’s a shitty enough twist to warrant full surgical removal from four films.

Neither version of the “son of a bitch” line works, but while the second is way off, the first is pretty close. Just needs to be less abruptly cut off.

I don’t know if you’re still working on this Ziggy, but this sounds fantastic. ROTJ is one of those movies that’s so frustratingly uneven (the good parts are the best the franchise has ever been; the bad really pulls it down), and I’m always on the lookout for more VI fanedits.

I’ve grown to appreciate Hayden in ROTJ, so that’s the only sore point in this edit for me. But I love all of your other ideas, especially a new closing shot. Just wanted to say that I’m looking forward to this.
