If you could change one thing about every movie, what would it be? — Page 3

I would have liked for a film with a suited Vader hunting down the Jedi. It would have had to have remained mysterious who he was. Nobody should know it was Anakin everyone should assume he died in the Clone Wars, and Obi Wan should think he killed him on Mustafar.

Not sure if this should have been in Revenge of the Sith or a film in between episodes III and IV. Maybe an episode 3.5

The Phantom Menace - Have Palatines hologram show him in his sith form Lord Sidious and not Senator Palatine. (For Episodes I-III).

Attack of the Clones - No Yoda and Dooku Duel and don’t have Dooku as a Sith, He’s a General instead.

Revenge of the Sith - Lord Sidious takes Darth Vader to Exogol for treatment, Plus no Noooo.

A New Hope - The Rebel Alliance doesn’t destroy the death Star at the end, when the imperial forces realize there is a weakness in their battle station by the way the rebel alliance is attacking they quickly retreat.

Empire Strikes Back - Leia doesn’t kiss Luke, she shows him more attention than Han because she thought he was dead on hoth and was worried about him, so she is relieved when Han saves him and gets him back to base.

Return of the Jedi - The death Star looks incomplete because they have patched up its weakness from a new hope and Han isn’t jealous of Luke and Leia because they never kissed in ESB.

The Force Awakens - Rey Doesn’t find Luke at the end, it ends with her and Chewy going into hyperspace.

The Last Jedi - Luke saves Leia when she gets blown into space. After R2 has showed him the hologram from a new hope he meditates on a rock and senses her in trouble and uses the force to project her to safety.

The Rise of Skywalker - Rey isn’t a Palpatine and she’s doesn’t refer to herself as a Skywalker either. Plus Leia doesn’t train Rey.

Out of curiosity, what do you dislike about Leia training Rey? That’s actually one of the few parts of that movie I like.

“Remember, the Force will be with you. Always.”

Hi Jedi_bendu, I just feel that Rey was already doing good by herself, she managed to fight of Kylo in TFA and Defend herself in TLJ obviously she had some training with Luke but just feel like she was already holding her own and the Leia training her feels a little forced and unnecessary.

Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying it ruins the film but I just think it didn’t need it.

Something I did really dislike tho was Rey being a Palpatine and then refering to herself a Skywalker. Why does she have to be either, the movie hints at Fin is force sensitive and at the end of TLJ we see broomstick boy.

I don’t feel the need to have Rey connected to a main character in the saga.

There’s no harm in it but to me it feels unnecessary.

Ep 1 - Delete entire movie
Ep 2 - Delete entire movie
Ep 3 - Delete entire movie (even though I’ve never seen it)
Ep 4 - Edit to add some apparent time (like a week) on Yavin IV before the DS arrives, maybe with some X-Wing Training
Ep 5 - No Change
Ep 6 - Random wheel spin of one of the following: More dignified demise of Boba Fett, Leia is not a sibling, Vader lands his shuttle before the Luke/Leia convo, Wookiees on Endor, OR at the very least, depict that the Ewoks have insanely fast wood chopping, hauling, and building skills to be able to fabricate AT-ST traps in the middle of a battle.

I haven’t seen any Disney SW except Solo, which should be deleted.

Star Wars - Nothing
TESB - Nothing
RotJ - Make the Ewoks look fierce.

TPM - Change Jar Jar’s accent.
AotC - Swap most CGI for practical.
RotS - Padme would survive but Anakin would think she died.

TFA - Nothing
TLJ - Less humor regarding Hux.
TRoS - I hate the title.

R1 - Nothing
Solo - I hate the Kessel Run concept as depicted.

Padme would survive but Anakin would think she died.

That just feels like being faithful to the OT for faithfulness’s own sake. Retcons are worthwhile if they make overall story is better.

TFA - Nothing

That has to be a hot take, right?

TRoS - I hate the title.

Well I hated the title of TLJ, but thought TRoS was a perfect title.

TPM: Age up Anakin, ensuring that he can be played by the same actor in all three films.

AotC: Give Count Dooku more screentime and character development.

RotS: Reinstate, in some form, Padme’s subplot with the dissident senators.

ANH: Remove C3PO’s line about how he “can’t abide those Jawas. Disgusting creatures.” It’s just a bit morbid, since moments before, 3PO was piling Jawa corpses on a pyre.

ESB: Tone down Han and Leia’s bickering. (That includes her kissing Luke.)

RotJ: Edit the final battle so that Vader goading Luke about how “It is the only way to save your friends” comes at the same time that Han and Leia’s lives are most in danger.

TFA: Give Finn a more serious, soldier-like demeanor.

TLJ: Luke lives.

TRoS: Luke trains both Rey and Finn on Ajan Kloss.

Rogue One: Have the Death Star Plans be actually transmitted to the Tantive IV, which is not at the battle.

Solo: Make it a comedy.

The Phantom Menace: Maintain all character ages. It just takes place about 7 years along in the timeline.

Attack of the Clones: Count Dooku fights Mace Windu after Obi-Wan and Anakin.

Revenge of the Sith: Hire a stuntman to perform for Ian in his fight scenes.

Star Wars: Remove any weird overtones of Luke and Leia.

The Empire Strikes Back: Leia doesn’t kiss Luke.

Return of the Jedi: Boba gets a better fight scene.

The Force Awakens: Forceback includes scenes of Clone War, Civil War, and a shot of Ben as a child with Luke, Han, Leia, and Lando.

The Last Jedi: Luke mourning Han.

The Rise of Skywalker: Ben has a scene with Luke and Anakin in the pit. Luke and Anakin then go help Rey defeat Palpatine with Leia.

Alright, here’s my take on this. All changes are for the theatrical versions of the movies, except ANH which has the “Episode IV” subtitle from 1981.

ANH: Redo the spaceship shots to make them more dynamic (like what the SE did, but better)
ESB: Add more windows to Cloud City (again, like what the SE did, but better)
ROTJ: Replace the Ewoks with Wookiees
TPM: Get rid of the stupid accents on the alien characters
AOTC: Rewrite Anakin and Padme’s romance to make it believable
ROTS: Rewrite Anakin’s fall to darkness to make it believable
TFA: Remove Starkiller Base’s planet-destroying laser
RO: Rewrite the characters to make them more memorable
TLJ: Rewrite the subplot so Poe replaces Rose
SOLO: Make Han less sympathetic and more ruthless
TROS: Replace Palpatine with a cult leader who communicates with Sith spirits

My preferred Skywalker Saga experience:
I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX

Gotta love how you capitalize SOLO, implying it too is an acronym. So Our Lives Obliviate, Some Only Live Once, Stars Of Solace Out, etc… You guys can probably come up with something better.

I sometimes imagine Boba Fett not falling, but getting pulled slowly into the sarlacc, reminiscent of Quint sliding into the mouth of the shark in Jaws. That is still an intense scene.

ANH: Replace Alec Guinness with Ewan McGregor from the near future
ESB: More Fett
ROTJ: Have the construction on the DSII actually make a bit of fairly noticeable progress during the movie.
TPM: Remove Jar Jar and find some other way to get to Theed that would still be semi-exciting.
AOTC: Remove mention of Death Star and save the reveal for ROTS
ROTS: Put all the deleted scenes back in.
TFA: Snoke is Plagueis (just for the heck of it.)
TLJ: DJ stays with the good guys the whole time
TROS: New script that actually redeems the ST after the abysmal TLJ.

I’m not really that much of a movie purist. I really should’ve thought my name out a bit more.

But there’s not a single rising Skywalker, just a Palpatine and a Solo.

Ben has Skywalker blood and Rey takes on the name Skywalker.

ROTS: Put all the deleted scenes back in.

Even this one?

TFA: Snoke is Plagueis (just for the heck of it.)

Groan

TLJ: DJ stays with the good guys the whole time

At the point you pretty much have to rewrite his entire character including even his name (it’s short for Don’t Join).

TROS: New script

That’s not one change.
