Also, I just listened to the commentary and have a question for Hal (and everyone else): When watching Rey tap into the Force and overpower Kylo at the end, do you interpret this as her using the Dark Side, or just harnessing the ‘light’ which has ‘always been there’? I ask this because if Rey were so susceptible to the Dark Side here, that might constitute a very great character flaw and go a long way towards making her a more dynamic lead.
BTW, thanks for the many shout outs in the commentary Hal, you’re really too kind!
V1 was mediocre at best and at that time I just hoped that someone would take the idea and run with it, so you and Ridley deserve all the credit I can give.
I just got V3 and checked out your wonderful commentary, I just wanted to say that you did credit me correctly (not that it really matters, but you said that you might have gotten it wrong). There was some confusion earlier regarding the deleted scene, but you credit Neverar for putting the scene together and then me for the effects and how the scene is a great example of our collaboration. So, thank you for all your hard work and your insightful commentary track. It’s a top of the line fan-edit release.
