Tbh these things don’t really need to be explained, but this could be pointed to for those who needed that kind of question answered.
You’re right that they don’t need to be explained, and the people asking for explanations for that will also want explanations for how the Holdo maneuver only works in that one particular circumstance and who Snoke is where Maz got Luke’s lightsaber and a billion other useless bits of visual dictionary filler.
If Han Solo demands an answer to questions like this, then so do I.
I still think about your Ben Solo using Anakin’s lightsaber idea. ❤️
I get so exhausted thinking about ideas for the PT and ST. I just want to move on, but my brain can’t help but churn out ideas for them. Maybe it’s because I’ve loved Star Wars for so long it’s like the sunk cost fallacy. I’d like to help complete a solid Rey Nobody edit (which I think Spence has done with his edit), then do a fun Return of the Jedi edit, then move on from Star Wars. But honestly the idea of doing an entire Saga edit will always haunt me…
I had made peace with the PT for a long time, until the idea for ROTS invaded my brain…the one where Anakin goes to Mustafar while the clones (and Palpatine?) go to the Jedi Temple, implying that Obi-wan lies to Padme to get her to confront Anakin. That one change would solve half my issues with that trilogy while having reverberations all the way through the ST.
Yet I would never be able to limit the edit to that change, and the task of a full edit of another Star Wars movie is just far too daunting. Perhaps some brave soul will take up the mantle and do these movies justice…I can only hope.
You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.
