I have a very clear idea for how to handle a Ben Lives alternate ending, which will be the first thing I work on once the film comes out on Blu-ray, but I kind of want to wait and see how much I can do on my own before I share it.
But speaking of Ben Lives, I’m still kind of debating on how to handle Ben bringing Rey back to life. It makes sense that if Ben resurrects Rey, that he will die since he gave her his life Force. So just cutting him dying might feel like it goes against what the movie established about the power.
So should we just have Ben save Rey and not die, regardless of the questions it might raise, or introduce some “divine intervention”?
Either divine intervention or just have Rey not fully die in the first place. Perhaps she gets hurt or just faints and he wakes/heals her before it’s clear that she’s dead. I like the idea of involving Leia though.
