If you’re full of creative ideas OR a talented voice actor… This is the place to be!
A recurring theme in Disney’s Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi is failure.
Yoda’s force ghost directly gives Luke this message in the film.
The resistance, despite only just managing to pull through at the very end, ultimatly fails in keeping evryone alive and safe. Ending the film with only a handful of them left.
The sequence of events in this film has been described by the great Mr Harry Plinkett as: ‘a comedy of errors’ a form of narrative stemming from the early Shakespeare play: The Comedy of Errors.
This type of structure is when a single mistake made by a charcter creates a tumbling snowball effect. Meaning that it is followed by a series of endless new disasters and tragedies each with worse and worse implictaions.
The ultimate failure of the resistance and the countless losses of life on their behalf can be traced back to a single, poor decision made: Finn and Rose getting a parking ticket.
That’s right folks! In this installment of the Skywalker Saga the heroes lose and everyone dies because someone parked their spaceship in the wrong spot!
This bizarrely written and strangly executed turn of events can be re-shaped however. It is my intention that in my personal fanedit of TLJ (for which I will create a seperate topic) I will attempt to alter this single action in a way that makes the turn of events seem somewhat less ridiculous and more like a Star Wars movie.
This can be achieved by redubbing the alien that gets Finn and Rose arrested.
I was hoping to have someone re-record his lines so that it seems as if they get arrested for a more serious and less stupid reason than a parking ticket.
I now turn to you guys and encourage any suggestions!
The question I ask is:
What should the alien tell the police Finn and Rose have done wrong that gets them arrested?
