This youtube edit I found is a concept for what an Anakin and Ben force ghost on Tatooine could look like.

Love it! Hope someone adds this for sure. However, a minor request would be for Ben and Anakin to be in lighter robes more similar to those of the Jedi. However, one could argue their darker robes reflect their darker past before returning to the light side of the force.

But no, it’s a somewhat awkward shot of the twin suns for the third time, and a reused piece of music from TFA.

Hmm, what if “Broom Boy” was removed from TLJ and made the last scene of TROS . . . ?

(For me this might be easier, since I’m planning a 3-film mashup anyhow.)

I don’t have a problem with the final scene besides the absence of Ben (needs to be added w/ Luke and Leia), but I definitely think the broom boy could be re-purposed as saga finale, especially in an edit where Rey is no longer a Palpatine. It would ring home anyone can be a Jedi in the final frames of the saga.

A quick and dirty test of something else I would like to see. (Click image to see test video)

This totally needs to happen in a fan edit. Love it! Plus I always wanted a little contrast between the sabers Rey uses together in the end of the film. Two blue sabers together was kind of bland in my opinion. Also it is good to see someone else with a purple saber beyond Mace.

Here’s my shitty proof of concept for extending Mustafar:

Clearly you can see here that nothing really works with this clip as the video quality of the added shots is very poor as well as the added music.

I think you are on to something. Perhaps when Kylo uncovers the stone chest and grabs the wayfinder, instead of panning back to him holding it against the backdrop of the forest you can show an establishing shot of Vader’s castle from Rogue One instead. Just another link to him and his grandfather and shows the audience it is indeed Mustafar. You can make it look like he is in the interior of the castle retrieving the wayfinder instead of outside. Just an idea. Keep up the good work!

Here’s Boolio’s new dialogue which will be in Bocce with English subtitles:

Boolio: “The First Order’s super weapon— someone gave it to them.”
(Ha Wun Orr Da olanda reapon - Koo-dopi hokokeez yolats?)

Finn: “Who?”

Boolio: “I don’t know but it only fires once.” (Donnoj. Fooma wuntimax)

Finn: “How do we thank you?”

Boolio: “Shoot the Supreme Leader. Twice please.” (Zooto meesta fazkup. Dola bleeze. )

I like your change ideas, definitely helps follow up Kylo’s trajectory after The Last Jedi. However, I think this new dialogue exchange needs work. It sounds a little clunky like the prequels in my opinion. I look forward to seeing the final product. Let me know if I may be able to help. May the force be with you!

Speaking of what Palpatine wants, I also think Palpatine’s motivations need to be changed.

If Palpatine was Snoke, presumably, then Palpatine already knows that Kylo won’t kill Rey. And Kylo would also know that Palpatine knows that. If Palpatine as Snoke couldn’t get Kylo to kill her, then this guy Kylo just met definitely won’t. If Palpatine asked Kylo to bring Rey to him, it might be something more reasonable for him to ask. Then you could use Kylo’s masked dialogue to fill in that gap of why Palpatine wants him to bring Rey there. Maybe it is to kill her himself, maybe he tries to convince Kylo that he can help turn her to the dark side, or maybe he never tells him why and the truth is that he knows about the dyad and needs them both there to drain their power.

Whatever the reason, I think Kylo would look smarter if he knows it is probably a trap, and his goal is to find Rey and keep her from reaching Exegol, because he knows that is exactly what Palpatine wants.

EDIT: I suppose my motivation for this is that I still want to keep this idea that Kylo has overcome what Vader couldn’t to some extent. Vader was a pawn of the Emperor up until he threw him down that reactor shaft. I think Kylo Ren should stop being Palpatine’s pawn when he kills Snoke. So even though Palpatine is “alive”, Kylo sees past Palpatine’s machinations and tries to work against them. I think this would help keep Kylo’s character regressing too much from where we left him in TLJ.

Perhaps in the fanedit, you set up through the crawl that Snoke was one of Palpatine’s pawns or apprentices (Like Maul, Dooku and Vader) and now Kylo has destroyed his apprentice and impressed Palpatine. This way, Snoke isn’t a meat puppet and somewhat autonomous of Palpatine. You could still leave the line that Palpatine created Snoke, but now it is more metaphorical and just cut the vat of cloned Snokes. Also it solves the problem you were talking about, as Palpatine may not know exactly how Snoke was defeated in his throne room and Kylo’s conflicting feelings with Rey. It just seems a lot cleaner to me than Palpatine creating Snoke and literally controlling him.

Mentioning that Snoke is a pawn in the crawl is redundant. Simply cutting out the jar of Snokes would lead the viewer to assume such (give or take how they interpret “made”).

Perhaps, but I do not think it is clear at all in the original cut of the film what the dynamic is exactly between Snoke and Palpatine. I still don’t know if Palpatine was directly controlling him and he was simply a “meat puppet” or autonomous like the clones in the prequels. I feel like him being an apprentice would be a nice call back to the prequels too. It’s just an idea. However where you see redundancy, I see clarity.

Plus I think it helps solve the problem I have with Snoke bridging Kylo and Rey’s minds and then Palpatine being shocked they are a dyad in the force. Also why would Palpatine tell Kylo to kill Rey if he was witness to Kylo and Rey’s takedown of Snoke and his guards?

Also has anyone here seen the new SNL skit with Adam Driver reprising his role as Kylo? There are a few shots of a maskless Kylo with a goatee, but in full Kylo Ren garb. I was thinking through editing these could maybe be used as pick up shots in the beginning of the film and have Kylo telepathically commune with someone (Palpatine, Luke, Rey, Anakin, etc.) It just gives him another look and sells time passing/ maybe he looks a little unkempt as he is obsessed with finding Exegol/Palpatine. Just an idea, don’t know how feasible that would be with editing.

Stein, thanks for the list of ideas.

Some I like and agree with, some I’d have to see the movie again to assess, and others might still be worth experimenting with.

The dagger aligning with the wreckage goes along with Rey veering off to go get it and with 3PO specifying a precise approach vector. So it might have to stay as part of the Gordian knot.

I’d have to look again, but I’m not sure how one would remove Rey deflecting the emperor’s lightning at the end and have it make any sense.

I think implying or stating that the Sith fleet needs the Human Resources of the First Order would be awesome. Can it be done, I wonder?

Hey! I’m new here, but I’ve been admiring your work on fanedits for some time now. I was wondering if perhaps there could be a reference to the some of the Sith Eternal being clones? This would explain how they could amass such a force and would tie in nicely with the clones of Snoke (and potential Palpatine) on Exogal. Also it ties in with the prequels and Kylo’s line about a clone army in TFA. Just idea…I don’t know by some crazy trickery maybe you could put Jango’s clones in vats alongside Snoke (or maybe Palpatine clones).
