This might not be for everyone, but the in the BTS, when they filmed the homestead scene, there was this rainbow in the background.

Something about the rainbow, which has often been a symbol for rain and life, being above this place that we have always considered to be a dry and barren place, really struck me. I like the idea of actually seeing this in the film, but maybe done more subtly than this!

Was it something done as an effect or was it the natural weather on location?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I can understand the binary sunset was more important to them and ending on a rainbow could be seen as too hokey, but I love that there actually was one there and I would love to see it at least subtly in a shot. Would two suns affect a rainbow differently?

Maybe it would be two rainbows?

I just googled that question and found this. Basically you get two off-center rainbows. But since it is normal for us to also see double rainbows, you could end up with quadruple rainbows.

But since that is too busy, you could just do two off-center rainbows. And you probably could make them skinnier than I’m making them.

It would still end on a binary sunset, but maybe you could see a subtle rainbow in this one shot.

When Leia is dropped off on Alderaan in ROTS there is a double rainbow in the sky, so something subtle to that effect may be nice for that reason, too.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Maybe if the rainbows of the quad were just wider with the right tail end obscured by the falcon? Could the behind the scenes rainbow be used somehow as well? Something really tickles me about a real rainbow there, also how might or would the rainbow be visible on the shot of Luke and Leia force ghosts?

I like this idea. Could you do me a favor and scale up the rainbows then drop the opacity way way down? Curious what that’d look like.

Speaking of the final scene, anyone working on force ghost Ben?

Honestly this is one of my most desired request. I’d like to see Ben phase in after Luke and Leia towards the end; similar to how Anakin joins Obi Wan and Yoda in RoTJ.

I will try it out if you like.

I will likely create two alternate endings with Ben (because I can’t decide what I prefer). One where Ben dies and we see him as a force ghost and one where he lives and we see him on Tatooine with Rey.

Sounds great!
I’d love to see it when you’re done!

I’d just also request a version where he is present simultaneously physically and as a ghost.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

You mean one version where he is there physically, and another where he is a ghost?

Something like this or even more subtle?

No, a version where the physical him sees ghost him.

Joke fail, I was just kidding.

That’s nice! The double-ness of the rainbow even ties nicely into the whole twins thing.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Haha, I was picturing him there, not transparent, but he still has that Force ghost glow. But I guess that would sorta look like TLJ Yoda!

No, I think that’s perfect! If anything I’d bring up the opacity just a very very small tad.
