Is there a plan to readjust the Executor crash scene so that you can see the curvature of the DSII?

I was watching this YT vid talking about the DSII size and it makes a good point: https://youtu.be/p_tUF_jvTBE?t=197

Really looking forward to this shot and whatever he has planned for the B-Wings.

I’m not sure if anyone has brought this up. Its bound to be controversial but, is there any footage from ‘Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure’/‘Ewoks: The Battle for Endor’ that could be useful to supplement the Endor scenes.

Its very likely the footage is too low quality and idk if there are any “good quality” sources for it out there. But it might have useful shots/clips of Ewoks or the forest in there. It would be unsurprising if its a no, though.

Adywan, in your full list of changes you’ve put:
“Have a small portion of the Ewok celebration which then leads to the funeral pyre scene. This is where the Force Ghosts will appear and the film will end with Luke being alone (which in turn foreshadows TFA).”

And I was just wondering where the stance is on that now. After TLJ/TROS, I know I’m not sure about how to feel when it comes to the sequel trilogy. I liked TFA, but it didn’t stand on its own and kind of hung on ANH/the promise of solid sequels but, given the disjointed nature of that trilogy… idk.
The real reason I ask is because, if that sort of open-ended ending was still part of you’re plan, then…

Spoilers for Rise of Skywalker

Could that new scene of Luke training Leia work as an alternative ending. It would still require trimming down the celebration and I’m not sure whether the pyre scene would work better where it is rn or just before the new scene, but I can imagine that scene fitting in there. I feel it would work well to act as a pay off to the whole “there is another” and give the whole siblings plot an actual conclusion, rather than just drama. It would also work for “haters” and fans of the Sequels alike, and would give credibility to certain controversial plot points that felt forced due to them having no setup.

Overall I believe it would add to the movie, and Star Wars saga, as (for some) the final movie in the saga, would end with Luke fulfilling his role of teaching the next generation of Jedi. The ‘Return Of The Jedi’.

From this behind the scenes footage of Luke and Leia’s training sequence it looks like the scene was a lot more fleshed out and elaborate hopefully the whole scene gets released… or ‘goes missing’.

How would it foreshadow The Force Awakens?

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

I also prefer to be referred to as “TNT”, not “Freezing”.

I don’t think it’s any more “open ended” than the original ending.
What it does do is end the film on a more serious, reflective & emotional scene than the Ewok boogie.
I couldn’t care any less how it ties in to the ST, It’s just a better fitting end to the trilogy.

You miss understand. Its not that I don’t like the idea of ending the trilogy on the pyre scene, it sounded great when i heard it. And I to have no love left for ST, but I know there are some who do, and I was simply respecting that in my reasoning. But an added note you have I’m not sure if that scene would work, it may not feel organic if it is incorporated, and the cinematography may not match that of the rest of ROTJ. But it was an idea I thought I’d share.

Also I might note that “serious, reflective & emotional” ending was already used on ESBR, and is intended as a foreshadowing of sorts for the unknown struggles to come. But that only works if you are going to follow it up with ST content, which is something I am willing to bet a lot (though not all) will not be doing.
However, the Luke/Leia scene could work for both sides of that equation.

I totally disagree. The pyre scene with force ghosts is perfect closure.

Yeah, I think people had the idea to close it that way even before the Sequel Trilogy was a thing.

I don’t know if this is exactly what Adywan is thinking, but I still really love this idea. To me, it is a very moving ending and I hope he adopts something like this.

Maybe Yoda could say “my child” at one point and Luke, as he’s watching the Pyre, could whisper “Asoka…”

That would provide some links to the new legends or whatever they are calling this stuff now. I mean, if all ideas are on the table… right?

I liked how Grindhouse did it, personally.

What the hell are you talking about? I genuinely don’t understand. What would any of this add?

Also, I’m 90% sure Baby Yoda isn’t Yoda’s actual son.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian,
TFA (Starlight), TLJ (Fallen Knight), TROS (Resurgence).
May the midichlorians be with you.

Why?

and Luke, as he’s watching the Pyre, could whisper “Asoka…”

What does that even mean??

Oh. Is that what Kurgan was talking about?
Yeah. That’s not Yoda’s baby. …I hope.
Is the baby’s name supposed to be “Aska”? Is that what that means?

I think he meant to say Ahsoka. Which just makes it even weirder, since why the hell would Luke know about her, and why would he whisper her name at Darth Vader’s grave? This “suggestion” is just so weird.

TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian,
TFA (Starlight), TLJ (Fallen Knight), TROS (Resurgence).

You need to check out TCW, man. Ahsoka’s great once you get past the first season.

Had to look up what that is.

I just can’t tell you how put off I am by everything about that show. I don’t care about Jedis. It doesn’t look like the Star Wars world. I hate the visual style.
I’m just not interested in Star Wars outside of the OT & I don’t feel like that story is missing anything that a PT or ST needs to fill in.

The only way I’m watching it is snuggled on a couch with you. Otherwise there’s nothing in it for me.
