At some point the farm boy from Tatooine needs to grow up and make his own wise decisions. And finally he did—-when he projected himself across the galaxy, sacrificing his life. Having Ben or Yoda or whoever pipe up and guide him at that point would undercut his final arc.

I think it’s worth a try, if it’s executed well it would be a nice addition.

I don’t see any way it could be executed that wouldn’t feel like it’s out of left field and entirely unnecessary. But again, I’m willing to keep an open mind about it if someone gives it a try and it works. I just don’t see how it could.

I guess I disagree that they “should have” made an appearance at all. That would have been pure fan service. If there was a place in the story for either of them, then sure. But there wasn’t, so trying to force an appearance where it isn’t organic is just going to be…well, forced, and unnecessary. That would have been true if Johnson had decided to toss Obi-Wan in there just because he felt obligated (see: Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek: Into Darkness) and it will be doubly true for any fan edit trying to jam him in there just because the editor thinks he needs to go somewhere.

The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (SPOILERS)
Time

That gave me an idea.

What if Rey simply doesn’t answer the “Rey who?” question? As in, the question is still asked of her, but instead of saying “Rey Skywalker,” she just takes a beat to consider it, then smiles, we get the binary sunset, and the movie ends. Or she answers with, “Just Rey.”

The reasoning being, it highlights that she’s free to decide who she wants to be from now on. She doesn’t have to be beholden to either her family (Palpatine, or if it’s a Rey Nobody edit, her parents who did nothing with their lives) or her “adoptive” family (Luke/Leia/Han) - she’s just Rey, and she gets to decide what that means for herself.

I think this does a good job of wrapping up her arc, since throughout the trilogy she’s been looking for meaning through others (her family, then Finn, then Han, then Luke, then Kylo, etc), but now she’s accepted that she can create her own meaning. Leaving Luke and Leia’s sabers at Luke’s childhood home and moving forward with one of her own creation (with a symbolic new color) also accentuates this.

What do you guys think?

Star Wars: 4K77 v1.4 [DNR] With Color Grading Avaible?
Time

It’s because the v1.0 DNR version is basically an entirely different “fork” from the v1.0 No-DNR version with an entirely different base color grading, so any color corrections which are done to one of them can’t be applied to the other.

If Williarob pops in here, he can explain better than I, since he’s the one who did v1.0 DNR in the first place.

There is a new version in the works which uses DrDre’s new reel-by-reel color grading that should finally give us a new DNR version and bring DNR and no-DNR into parity so future updates to one can be applied to the other, like 4K83.
