I just downloaded and watched poppasketti’s Last Jedi: Rekindled and he has truly outdone himself. This is a marvelous edit and the SPFX changes/additions he made were top notch. This is my go to version of the Last Jedi. With that being said, I was still bothered by the horrible Maz Cameo, Cantobight trip, and lame codebreaker talk/character. This is simply bad writing by Rian and there is no way around that. Or is there…
I’ve been messing around with the Rekindled edit and I think with his added BB-8 to Finn and Rose’s shuttle escape scene, I think it may be possible.
‘The Plan’ - Setting up the new plan of action without Maz and the need for a codebreaker. Quite simple really. The plan fails so it doesn’t have to be well thought out. The theory behind the new plan? Someone (Poe) has learned about Han and Leia’s little maneuver in The Empire Strikes back. Floating away with the rest of the garbage. The rebels are being pursued with ships being destroyed so debris would be constantly passing by ‘The Supremacy’. Finn and Rose would float in space as debris until they are behind ‘The Supremacy’ and then enter from behind. Billie Lourd’s character even says as much. “It’s nothing. Just debris”
Here are the short scenes edited together. “The Plan”
I had a 20 minute video of just Finn and Rose on ‘The Supremacy’ combined with Poe’s takeover and subsequent hyperspace ram, but I need to re-encode that. I can upload that tomorrow. But I really think it works… Thoughts?
