I can imagine a Sir Ridley voice saying in imitation of a stern line from Anakin: “Don’t ask me to do that!” Haha.
Given the option of the OOT and SE Sarlaccs, for this ‘so you chose to pull the Special Edition off the shelf this time instead of the original version that is also there’ version, I’ll take the beak and all for the reason that I understand the desire to do something about it for a SE.
But I do prefer the gaping maw approach overall to a beak. Seems more… psychologically interesting, similar to Luke milking the walrus things in TLJ.
Initiating self-destruct countdown…
