STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - ** PRODUCTION HAS NOW RESTARTED **
Time

I always thought the close ups of the AT-AT heads were a bit problematic even in the original theatrical presentation because of the lack of visable atmospheric noise (for want of a better term). The effect used here amplifies the problem. Cold air has a depth to it just as heat has. It’s one thing they couldn’t quite crack in the late 70s. There is so much right with the sequence that’s its hard to complain.

Obviously surprises must be kept but the new death of the Executor is it going to be a weightier collision and closer?

I know its controversial but I like the weight of Grievous’ ship crash in Episode 3. I can imagine something of a similar scale.

Having the previously menacing signature ship of the main antagonist go out with all the impact and scale of a paper plane does diminish it somewhat.

The Dream of the Giant Fractal Woodlouse.
Time

I had a dream that I was talking to the grandson of Frank Sinatra. Who was visiting Glasgow before meeting with Johnson at some big do in London. A civil servant lady interrupted the conversation saying that the Johnson meeting was off as there were giant Tornados and hurricanes ripping through cities on continental Europe and everyone was being moved into shelters… In the dream everyone just took it in their stride. Here we go again sort of thing. It was quite scary.

One thing I would like to see in ANH and ROTJ would be droids like K-2SO walking around. I really like Rogue One and I like how that droid signalled how both sides of the Clones Wars had converged to become the Empire. Its a nice design too. If only the prequel battle droids were that substantial.

KENOBI: A STAR WARS STORY [RELEASED] [5.1 Surround]
Time

It would have worked better if a Sandperson did attack and Reva saved Luke. I wish she had lost the saber in the previous episode. When Luke lights up his new saber in ANH wouldn’t he be all “wow that’s like that red one that crazy lady my Aunt and Uncle scared off had… I thought I dreamt it” otherwise the whole sequence is pointlessly distracting. The show is about Kenobi not some child torturing dudes and dudettes. It’s all making redemption very cheap.

Worst Edit Ideas
Time

Luke Skywalker: You fought in the Clone Wars?
Ben Kenobi: Yes, I was once a Jedi Knight the same as your father.
Luke Skywalker: I wish I’d known him.
Ben Kenobi: He was the best starpilot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior. I understand you’ve become quite a good pilot yourself. And he was a good friend. Which reminds me, I have something here for you. You father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn’t allow it. He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damn fool idealistic crusade like your father did.
C-3PO: Sir, if you’ll not be needing me, I’ll close down for awhile.
Luke Skywalker: Sure, go ahead.
[C-3PO shuts down.]
Luke Skywalker: [to Ben] What is it?
Ben Kenobi:It’s your mother’s dildo. A bit of a grim memento to be honest. I’ve got some batteries around here somewhere. If I recall it could go like the clappers. She used to refer to it as Thunderous Applause.

Unusual <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

Forgive me if this has been suggested or tried before but in The Last Jedi when the resistance call for help instead of no response maybe the transmission from Palpatine could be heard. His puppet is lost he might feel strong enough to emerge after the recent destruction of the Republic Capital and Fleet. It would be the ultimate kick in the teeth for the resistance. And then in walks Luke. That way the Palpatine thing isnt just chucked in for the last part.
