eyebrows convey so much emotion. People without them look pretty alien

Hey, Michael Berryman can’t help the way he looks.

Duracell, could you chop down your sig a tad? It’s causing problems on mobile devices.

Having eyebrows just doesn’t seem accurate or makes sense, even if it does convey more emotion.

Seeing that his eyebrow area doesn’t look damaged or scarred like the top of his head or under his left eye, I’d simply say that they escaped that kind of trauma to the area and so still grow the eyebrow hair back without issue.

One of my cousin’s once completely burnt off both of his eyebrows when lighting a bonfire (he’d thrown fuel all around it and the resulting fumes went up in a massive fireball when lit with him in it). To this day, he still has completely full and normal eyebrows 😉

No matter what kind of heated arguments this community can get into, I just wanted to say I love how we can have a civil, in-depth debate on the merits of keeping or removing a character’s eyebrows.

What it really all comes down to is what adywan wants to see in his own personal edit of the film.

If I were to put in my two cents, I’d say the eyebrows give him too much of a kindly old man look, which I don’t think is appropriate for the character.

In that scene (being post-redemption) it might be.

I’m still mostly leaning toward no eyebrows for my personal preference, but I’m more on the fence now than I was before this discussion went in depth.

What about making the eyebrows a bit patchy.

We can take the truly democratic route and only give him one eyebrow.

Or keep one eyebrow and remove the other.

Maybe we could transplant them and give him a moustache?

I have a simple third option to resolve the eyebrow debate: Under Vader’s helmet he just has another, smaller helmet.

This just sounds like something from SpaceBalls. 😜

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

Not sure what you’re getting at by quoting yourself.
Of course it comes down to what Ady wants to do. All of it does. But it’s fun to debate and make a case for your opinion and Ady has made decisions based off these types of discussions.
You are more than welcome to wait silently until it’s all finished, without voicing any opinion, but don’t try road blocking the conversations of others.

Who says Han wanted to be reassuring ? 😄

Definitely one way it could be taken, especially since the betrayal would still be pretty real and fresh in Han’s mind after being frozen in carbonite till not long before. The fact Lando is obviously there helping with the rescue effort wouldn’t undo the emotional affects of the betrayal.

Ugh, here we go with this again…

WTF are you on about man? I think I know what you’re referring to but it’s got nothing to do with my above comment or this thread.

I find Lando’s “betrayal” to be a misreading of events and it’s a pet peeve of mine.
You brought it up and I made a joke.

I think this is my favorite solution! 🤣

FWIW, if Revisited is supposed to be a ‘desert island’ version (rather than an alternative to the originals on one’s shelf), I would recommend keeping the eyebrows. If not, I think the ‘no eyebrows’ approach is nice for a Special Edition or alternative version.

I agree, lets lose the eyebrows.

Ah k, that makes a bit more sense. I thought you were alluding to events in the random Star Wars pics and gifs thread.

I’m not sure how it is a misreading though of the matter? From the character’s perspective and the audience’s upon first viewing (who know no better at the time), Lando has betrayed them to the Empire. Vader may have arrived before the gang and tied Lando’s hands so to speak but there was nothing stopping Lando from telling Han on the landing pad to turn around and run or try to get some radio message out via his wrist communicator to Lobot as we see him do later on anyway. Sure his life may have been at risk in both situations but allowing the gang to be captured in order to save his own skin is selling out. You might say he has to be responsible for the residents of Cloud City but when he later decides the deal is no longer to his liking, he organised a resistance force and orders the evacuation of the city anyway. Seeing his old friend being tortured and the oppression of the Empire very much in his face probably helped him to change his mind but it doesn’t change the fact that he initially betrayed them.

In any event Han, Leia and Chewie certainly have the initial view point that he has betrayed them (and therefore the audience) with Han being tortured and Leia and Chewie still highly suspicious of Lando even right after he delivers them from the storm troopers taking them to Vader’s shuttle. It was just lucky that Lando was able to gasp out that there was still a chance to save Han that saved himself from death by Wookiee.

Great! Now that that’s settled, I think I noticed a white speck on Chewie’s foot on the sail barge. Call me crazy, but it almost looks like a snowflake…
