Hal, I’ll probably be sending a line sometime this week, I can’t wait to see a clip of it! 😄

As for Poppasketti, that clip looks great! Could we possibly see something built more off option A? I loved the flght path of that one and I think it would be better if the jump to hyperspace is as far out of atmosphere as possible.

Edit:

Here’s a thought!
Could you try to do something about the Lars homestead in the foreground? It sort of throws the scale off as the Falcon flies really close to it overhead and looks too small. I would suggest to shrink it or erase it completely.

It’s weird, when I woke up I saw the shuttle and Vader’s TIE shots on his Google drive, but the Vimeo link with all the joke shots was busted so I never got to see any of them. 😦

The original TIE wasn’t really meaningful anyway, they just showed us something common that Kylo found that was flyable.

Nope. Have to disagree. As Rich Evans describes Abrams:
“His whole thing is feeling over sensible plotting.”

I don’t think Vader’s TIE really works. The idea that it was sitting on Death Star II and happened to survive intact along with the radar dish and the throne room stretches my suspension of disbelief. Plus, shouldn’t the redeemed Ben be moving away from his obsession with Vader iconography? I would prefer the shuttle personally.

Hal 9000 said:

We saw Vader arrive on the DSII in a shuttle, and he hasn’t been seen using his TIE since ANH. I know “realism” isn’t this movie’s strong suit anyway, but the shuttle just seems to make more sense.

Whatever works for you Hal, I guess…

Just thought I should let Poppasketti know that the shot of Vader’s TIE next to Luke’s X-wing is my new desktop wallpaper. 😉

As for convincing Hal to use it as well, whilst the Empire did construct more of them just not in mass amounts, it can probably be assumed that the actual TIE belonging to Vader WAS present on the Death Star II, as it was never destroyed following Yavin and Vader could have just parked it in a hanger somewhere during one of his frequent visits to the station.

Additionally, Kylo has a lust for Vader artifacts and probably saw it sitting somewhere and said to himself, “How could I not take that baby out for a spin?!”

Finally, the entire point of that shot was to be a cheap nostagia grab to make us smile, (it certainly made my brother smile when he saw it!) Vader’s TIE chasing Luke’s X-wing is arguably one of the most iconic pieces of imagery in the original Star Wars. The shuttle inclusion whilst still looking great, don’t get me wrong, makes the entire shot make little sense in being framed in such a way. Choosing it is choosing a minor nitpick on practicality over an incredible visual spectacle. The Imperial shuttle wasn’t shown until ROTJ and even than, it made little impact visually.

But you know, that’s just my opinion. 😄

JJ - Destroyer of Worlds

jj

To get things back on track, here is a complete list of all the moments in the film when a reference is made to the Final Order having Death Star cannons:

(I think we can imply that the function of those cannons is just, big guns, not blowing up planets!)

  1. Hux saying, “Shall we destroy the city?”

  2. Palpatine telling Pryde to destroy a world they know. (So dumb!)

  3. Scene of Kijimi’s destruction.

  4. The aftermath scene with Poe, Rose and Merry.

  5. Poe saying, “Every one we knock out is a world saved!”

As you can see, there is not many, so it should be pretty straightforward!

Yeah, this thread added 25 pages in the last week alone.

Exactly why I’ve been trying to convince others to shift some of these conversations to the ideas thread… It seems many newcomers can’t see the difference between that thread and a thread for someone’s specfic edit. 😐

It’s become an orgy of Mustafar establishing shots and fortnite broadcasts.

Which reminds me - I’m pretty certain Anakin actually says “oh shit” in this shot at :50

Does he? Or was that just an offscreen cameraman realising what film this is…

Edit:

Can we ask Darth Giacomo to retitle this thread to “The Eopie flatulence appreciation thread”

If we make the message about a hidden fleet and have the fortnite broadcast it will be confirming what they just heard.

Not what I meant but, whatever… 😒

I think some of these ideas being thrown around are better suited to Idir’s ideas thread. Much of this discussion about bringing in the message in completly newly created scenes doesn’t seem like something Hal is planning on pursuing.

The line seperating an ideas thread and someone’s actual edit has become blurred. 😐

“We’ve decoded the message, and it confirms the worst. Palpatine has returned.”

But why would they have to “decode” a message that everybody just heard in plain English?
