Just wanted to give you my review on the Palpatine version ——
Great work. I really, really like the hints throughout and it helps connect to Episode IX so much more. I think my favorite additions are the radio broadcast at the end and Palpatine’s laugh in the Luke/Ben flashback. Watching this, followed by The Rise of Skywalker, feels so much more natural now.
My only feedback, and I’d be happy to hear your thoughts on it, is for Snoke’s “Sith eyes” / yellow eyes moment. I think it’s a great idea, though it’s my opinion that his eyes are just not bright enough. They almost look like they’re just lit up because his robe is now being reflected from the light coming off of the lightsaber.
I wouldn’t have even noticed if I hadn’t read the change log. I’d like to see them brighter, more Sith-like.
Or, and this would be a more dramatic change, but one that would also work: when Snoke uses the Force to push and hold Rey up in the air, Palpatine’s theme starts playing, and there’s a close up on Snoke’s eyes. That would be a great place to revealing his eyes to transition to yellow as he tortures her.
That’s my only feedback for now. Great, great work.
