SW:ST without containing direct PT references (a WIP)

 (Edited)

SUMMARY
When I first watched TFA, it seemed that Disney/Lucasfilm was trying to omit the PT as if it never happened, like showing that the force wasn’t midichlorians but something supernatural. Then in TLJ, Luke says to Rey, “At the height of their powers, they allowed Darth Sidious to rise, create the Empire, and wipe them out.” By the TROS, it was all over the place to where it was clear that Disney/Lucasfilm had fully integrated them into their canon of the Skywalker Saga.

INTENTION
I didn’t mind when this happened, even though there were certain things about TROS that I didn’t like. For someone like me who doesn’t really like the PT and prefers to come up with their own continuity based on what was heard and depicted in the OT, the purpose of these fan edit is to remove all direct PT references that restricts the canon of it to the ST without changing anything else about the films.

OVERALL
All scenes within the ST making direct PT references will be removed. These changes will only be minimal. Throughout the ST using sound-alikes, only 4 dialogue sequences from Luke, Lor San Tekka, and Kylo Ren will be changed, and 7 voice redubs for Obi-Wan and Anakin to have them speak as their OT counterparts, with Anakin speaking as Sebastian Shaw.

CHANGES
THE FORCE AWAKENS

  • In the opening scenes, when Lor San Tekka is speaking to Poe, saying “Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the force” is going to be changed

  • When Kylo Ren is speaking to General Hux after Finn’s action by escaping with Poe, telling him "They’re skilled at committing high treason, perhaps Leader Snoke should consider using a clone army will only be partially changed

  • At the end of Rey’s force vision, Obi-Wan’s line “These are your first steps” will be redubbed to be Alec Guinness

THE LAST JEDI

  • On Arch-To, when Rey is trying to convince Luke to come back with her, his response saying “You think, what? I’m going to walk out with a laser sword and face down the whole First Order?” is going to be changed to "You think, what? I’m going to walk out with a lightsaber and face down the whole First Order?

  • When Luke gives Rey her second lesson by telling her about the Jedi, saying, “At the height of their powers, they allowed Darth Sidious to rise, create the Empire, and wipe them out” is going to be changed to “At the height of their powers, they allowed Palpatine to rise, create the Empire, and wipe them out"

THE RISE OF SKYWALKER
During the scene when Rey hears the voices of deceased Jedi speaking to her, Obi-Wan and Anakin’s dialogue will be redubbed

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi: “These are your final steps, Rey. Rise and take them”

  • Anakin Skywalker: “Rey”

  • Anakin Skywalker: “Bring back the balance, Rey, as I did”

  • Anakin Skywalker: “The Force surrounds you, Rey”

  • Anakin Skywalker: “Let it lift you”

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi: “Rise”

Since my main focus is on the OT’s continuity and how the ST could’ve been different, I don’t want to create any changes that’d ruin it for PT fans. This makes a problem when trying to change one of the lines in TFA.

I don’t know where else to ask for good ideas because, while I do have some of my own, it mainly relates to what could’ve been before the PT.

What would be a good line for Kylo Ren to say to General Hux that refers to what could’ve been before the Stormtroopers and doesn’t ruin it for PT viewers?
