Thinking about the crawl, would it be “too on the nose” about an imperial fleet. Granted, I like this A WHOLE LOT BETTER than the actual crawl, but could the focus be more about Kylo trying to become stronger in the Dark Side or Sith-ness? Something more on the lines of finding the Sith home world or something to increase his power/knowledge.
This kind of mirrors what we first thought (through Han) that Luke went to the “first” Jedi temple/planet to gain knowledge. Instead, here Kylo is wanting to gain knowledge for power by going to the “beginning” of Sith. It may be a better connection with the Sith Wayfinder to lead him to the “Sith homeworld”
It also kinda mirrors Rey’s use of the Jedi text, the ancient Jedi text from the beginning that leads her to her “new” powers and talents.
Just a thought I had.
So both the Emperor AND a giant fleet is more of a “Surprise” reveal for both the audience and Kylo himself.
Both his mentors are gone and he still has much to learn to gain more power, since we know he too wants to be as strong OR stronger than his grand father, Darth Vader, so he needs at least some guidance or learning more things to increase his power.
