Episode IX Opening Crawl
Time

Anakin Starkiller said:

Why would they rename the Resistance the Second Rebel Alliance? That’s pointless and confusing. As much as I would love to see a new generation of Jedi, Lucasfilm clearly doesn’t care for that. Why would Leia be killed offscreen?

They already renamed it and called them the Rebels in TLJ and a track on the soundtrack is “The Rebellion Is Reborn”… so blame Rian on that one. How else would you handle Leia? They said she would not be in the movie.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

I can honestly say I was very disappointed with The Last Jedi. Let me be clear, it was a GREAT film, but it was just an “eh” Star Wars film in terms of the overall plot. I went in expecting to love it… and it just didn’t feel like a Star Wars movie to me. I want to like this movie, but I am still conflicted as to whether or not I can.

Besides Luke’s story arc, it felt like no characters grew or changed throughout the events of the movie, Ben Solo is still bad, Rey is still unsure and confused of her powers, and Finn… is still Finn. The characters are also in the same place at the end of the film as they were in the beginning: on the run (even more) outnumbered by the First Order, without Luke and his guidance, and uncertain about their future as the First Order gains more power.

Furthermore, every major plot thread that was created by J.J. has been dropped only for him to get it back for Episode IX. It gives the impression that Disney does not even know where to take these characters. Snoke and Phasma have now just become useless characters with no real in-film backstories. I get that Palpatine did not have much of a backstory in the OT, but we at least had enough information to piece together what he was and his role in the story. By leaving Snoke as an ambiguous character, we are just left with more questions as to what his role in this trilogy was. Maz Kanata also appears to be a waste as well. All the buildup for her character only to be trimmed out of TFA and only to be in a hologram in TLJ.

The scenes on Canto Bight (PETA advertisements) were totally pointless as in the endgame of the movie its content served no purpose. Finn and Rose’s mission solves absolutely nothing and appears as if it was written in hindsight to give the characters something to do. Benicio Del Toro is the Max Von Sydow of TLJ, a great actor wasted on a useless character. The whole "running-out-of-fuel’ plot thread felt strange too as it has never been a problem in any other film. I guess that just means the spaceship gas station from Spaceballs is now canon.

It also seemed to me that the movie only took place over a few days, and it just seems strange. So far this new trilogy has only spanned a couple weeks, the galaxy’s biggest month… ever! The writing was also strange as R2-D2 just disappears from the movie and Chewbacca is gone for quite a while with no explanation. Rey just appears on the Falcon with no explanation as to how she got there.

The editing just felt off. Where were the wipes? The pacing also felt weird, some scenes went too long and some felt way too short.

And lastly, the last shot of the movie is by far the most upsetting in the whole saga. I get what Rian Johnson was trying to accomplish by it, that the force is alive in anyone and that hope is still out there, but it just didn’t feel earned by the end of the movie and feels like it was a Marvel-style post-credits scene tacked on before the end of the credits.

The main positive of the movie for me was John Williams score, amazing as always. I was also very pleased with Luke’s story (expect that his green lightsaber was barely utilized… another missed opportunity!). The movie would have been much stronger if more focus was given to it. I am excited to see what Episode IX holds for his character.

I was so excited to hear that Rian Johnson was directing this film, but now, I am very nervous for what his new trilogy holds.

Onward to the unwanted Han Solo movie we go…

TFA: A Gentle Restructure
Time

I like that theory, but the Falcon had already passed through Irving Boys, Ducain and Unkar as Rey later states, so the last hyperspace coordinates may be nowhere near Han. I like to think that she would know where Hosnian Prime was and that Rey would try to take Finn and BB-8 there, but they slipped out of hyperspace on the way. If it is able to be done, it can give us some more word of the Republic early on, however it would be nearly impossible to implement based upon the available footage.

TFA: A Gentle Restructure
Time

I noticed something small in the edit that prompts a new question. After they escape Jakku in the Falcon, where do Rey and Finn jump to in hyperspace? The OT established that coordinates for hyperspace needed to be entered in the Nav Computer. I know it’s nitpicky, but if Rey never left Jakku and since she does not know where the Resistance base is, how would she know where to go?

I made a quick mock up of what the ending of ROTJ:R might look like since Ady confirmed that the final scene will be Luke and Vader.

Sound effects were added in and the ending music from ROTS was used to streamline the mock-up. I’m not too sure where the force ghosts could be edited in but I’m sure Ady will think of something.

I figured I’ll bump this up as it fits the current discussion better that when I originally posted it. I think it will be hard to implement the ghosts in the scene since Luke doesn’t look anywhere else besides the pyre in the shot. As for the celebration, it would seem odd that Luke just has Vader’s body stored some place until after he parties and then goes back later on to burn it. I’m not sure how that will be addressed.

Reworking the first paragraph of the original crawl can fix the reordering of the Tatooine and Dagobah scenes.

STAR
WARS

EPISODE VI
RETURN OF THE JEDI

Luke Skywalker has returned to
the planet of Dagobah to continue
his training as a Jedi Knight.
Meanwhile, his friends have located
Han Solo at the lair of the vile
gangster Jabba the Hutt. But he
left his friend hanging on the
wall for six month…

Meanwhile Darth Vader went to
Tatooine to set a trap for Luke
knowing that he will show up
to save his friend. Vader
waited five month but Luke
never showed up leaving his
friend hanging on the wall

Vader finally left to report
to the Emperor, who sent him
to speed up to construction
of the new armored space station
more powerful, then the first
Death Star … when Luke
finally showed up.

Fixed it 😉

Let’s set ROTJ a month or so after ESB with the reordering, the crawl could still work. Lando and Chewie found Han within a week or two and Lando applies and gets a job at Jabba’s to have an inside-man. Luke got word of Lando’s plan and went back to Dagobah to confront Yoda and Ben about Vader being his father on his way to Tatooine, he needs to know for sure. Leia gets restless waiting for Luke to get there and decides to go in with Chewie and get Han out herself. Luke senses this and leaves for Tatooine right away. The movie then continues as originally scripted.

Reworking the original crawl can fix the reordering of the Tatooine and Dagobah scenes. A new crawl entirely isn’t really needed.

Little do they know that the
GALACTIC EMPIRE has secretly
been building a new armored
space station even more powerful
than the first dreaded Death Star.

When completed, this ultimate
weapon will spell certain doom
for the small band of rebels
struggling to restore freedom

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

Could it be possible that when Luke went to look for the first Jedi Temple he crashed landed on Anch-To with no means of contacting anyone? Notice the underwater X-Wing in this Topps card: https://i.imgur.com/qAslnbf.png. He probably had no parts to repair it and if he tried to reach out to Leia with the force then Snoke could block it out. In the Aftermath novels she claims something dark was surrounding her unborn son, it could be likely that the dark force that Snoke was surrounding Leia/Ben with was also blocking Leia’s force abilities. Leia feeling Han’s death in TFA could be explained because of Snoke worrying about Starkiller Base imploding and not focusing attention to Leia. After all, Snoke’s plan has been about keeping Luke out of the fight so removing his force connection to his sister would be a priority. Snoke does not know where Luke is but has managed to tear apart the connections to his family. Luke hasn’t been hiding but has instead been trapped on Anch-To. Rey and the Falcon is his way out, but since he has been living here for 2-3 years and learned a great deal about how he was trained incorrectly as a Jedi due to the ancient books he finds on the planet could be why he is reluctant to leave as he has given up hope for Ben and his abilities in this time. The whole “Map to Luke” could and has been explained more as a map to Anch-To using Imperial records and would explain that Luke didn’t leave a map since in this theory he was trapped there with no way back. It may make Luke look a little silly being that he went so far away without a backup plan to get back instead of him abandoning his family and friends in the wake of Ben becoming Kylo Ren. But then again, Luke has always been a little bit silly with his actions (ex. throwing his lightsaber away in the finale to ROTJ) so it fits his character.

Thoughts?

A quick suggestion for ROTJ:R, maybe throw in a reference to Thrawn in the background displays or see if you can add the Rebel’s Ghost ship in the Battle of Endor. It would be quite a treat for fans of Star Wars Rebels. ESB:R is a masterpiece. Wishing you all the best on ROTJ:R Ady!

STAR WARS

EPISODE VIII
THE LAST JEDI

Chaos has engulfed the galaxy. The destruction of the REPUBLIC leadership has allowed the dreaded FIRST ORDER to spread across the galaxy, as thousands of star systems are left to defend themselves against this growing threat.

Aiming to combat this evil, the brave RESISTANCE fighter Rey has traveled to contact Jedi Master LUKE SKYWALKER, the last hope against the agents of evil who seek to destroy him.

Driven to find Luke and end the Jedi once and for all, the dark lord Kylo Ren has arrived to a remote sanctuary in the frontiers of space, seeking to complete his training…

This one sounds official! I too hope that the film opens with a Kylo scene then cuts to Rey and Luke.

Opening Crawl for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Since “The Last Jedi” will pickup right where “The Force Awakens” left off, what is your opinion on what the opening crawl could be? Below is the one I have written for Episode VIII. If you have written one, please share!

STAR
WARS

Episode VIII
THE LAST JEDI

Tragedy has struck the New
Republic. After the deaths of
millions caused by the First
Order’s sinister Starkiller Base,
tensions are growing strong
within the RESISTANCE.

Little do they know that
Supreme Leader Snoke is about
to begin training Kylo Ren
in the dark secrets of the
FORCE. With this ancient
knowledge, the Resistance will
stand no chance against them.

General Leia Organa has sent Rey
to retrieve her brother, Luke
Skywalker, from his self-induced
exile, as he is the last hope to
save the galaxy from the treachery
of the First Order…

Time

I have been tracking this project since SW:R was released and I first heard about it online. I don’t care how long it takes, the hiccups it has, or how much us fans will need to donate. ESB:R will be the definitive edition of this movie and I am willing to wait as long as needed for Adywan to finish this to the fullest of HIS vision. You should be as well. We are almost there guys, just a little longer. I feel this just needs to be said because of a certain group of people saying they are being scammed or that this project is taking too way too long. Be thankful that you are actually going to get it; I know it will be awesome. May the Force be with us all.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - FanEdit Ideas <strong><em>SPOILERS</em></strong>
Time

darthrush said:

I think I have decided that my favorite crawl is the created by writer/reporter Andrew Shackley:

The Jedi are all but extinct, the Republic has fallen and in their wake, the Galactic Empire has engulfed the far reaches of the galaxy in fear.

Persecuted members of the Old Republic have been thrust into hiding. Only members of the REBEL ALLIANCE dare take a stand against the ruthless Imperial forces.

Deep in the Outer Rim territories, the dastardly Director Krennic has discovered the location of a long lost friend; one capable of completing the Empire’s most powerful weapon yet…

The first paragraph establishes the fall of the jedi, the fall of the Republic and the rule of the Empire. This is what you need for full galactic exposition. Then in the second paragraph it establishes who the Rebels are and how they came about. The last paragraph introduces you to Galen and Krennic while hinting at the superweapon in development. I prefer keeping it a mystery for the movie to take you on.

I like this one a lot, I hope when the fanedits come around, because I know they will! I hope they make it say ROGUE ONE instead of STAR WARS. I feel that helps differentiate it enough from the main saga and it would be a cool way to start the spinoff films, and a good call back to 1977 Star Wars original crawl without an episode title. I may do an edit myself unless I find a good project when the time comes around. I already did a hybrid of Empire and Jedi similar to Q2’s since I couldn’t find a download at the time. We’ll see though.
