The new crawl itself sound very weird to me. Like my brain has this very weird, very strange feeling every time I read it.
I wrote a new crawl, taking ideas from another I’ve seen on Reddit while also preserving part of a line from the Ascendant crawl. I’ve pitched it before, but let’s revisit it, shall we?
The flame of hope burns! Following the heroic sacrifice of Luke Skywalker on Crait, the daring Resistance has been reborn. The diabolical First Order, facing insurrection on a thousand worlds, is nearing collapse.
But a mysterious message has been transmitted across the known galaxy. A threat of revenge, rumored to be from someone from the wars of old, hiding within the unknown!
Determined to annihilate this threat to his failing rule, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren is chasing whispers of an ancient ARTIFACT, certain it would lead him to the very source of the broadcast…
(I’m fine with the broadcast. It displays Palpatine’s overconfidence, gives Kylo a motive for getting the Wayfinder and adds weight to the Resistance briefing scene when Palps’ survival is confirmed. And sadly, this requires removing the Fortnite broadcast addition, sorry…)
Is the “silencing” thing necessary for the edit?
