What if kylo finds the wayfinder in coruscant? Instead of mustafar … In the jedi temple

According to the Rise of Skywalker concept art that was JJ’s original intention.

You and skenera put out some really cool shots of Coruscant that would be great for this.

Since the Mustafar stuff is such short scenes anyway, could that Coruscant concept art somehow be used to replace the mustafar scenery? So after staring at the Jedi temple from that cool ass mothership and possiblly communing with the broken vader mask, we get a shot of Kylo walking into the temple, it’s in ruins of course, and find the wayfinder there.

If so, it would be, along with making Ajin Kloss into Naboo, a great way to give the worldbuilding of the prequels an actual presence and help further establish the idea that this film is an ending to the previous 8 movies, not just the previous 5.

That was my one of biggest issues with TRoS, after JJ talked about it being an ending to the whole saga, to everything that came before, there was almost nothing in the film that recognisably tied it to the PT. No Anakin ghost (fixed thanks to jonh, amazing work btw), no recognisable PT planets, the only thing we got was the blink and you miss it communing with the jedi scene where I couldn’t hear who was talking to Rey in the theater.

I remember watching RotS the first time and being really disappointed that we didn’t hear or see Obi-Wan’s message warning Jedi away from Coruscant.

I was really happy that we finally saw it in Rebels.

I would love to see a montage of Jedi survivors watching the recording and going into hiding afterwards. Probably during the epilogue montage, after Padme’s Funeral/Vader stares at the Death Star, insert shots of Jedi in ships, hiding on battlefields, etc… either hearing the message or watching the holorecording.

I think it adds to the tragedy that in addition to those who died, we get survivors who have to go to ground and leave being a Jedi behind them forever.

Idea: Knights of Ren Overhaul - Ideas for Fixing the KoR in TROS

Film The Rise of Kylo Ren comic and insert it into TFA and TLJ’s forcevisons and flashbacks.

end sarcasm But really though, it is beyond mind boggling that the story of Ben’s fall and the creation of his alternate persona was told exclusively in a comic. Just as bad as having Palpatine’s announcement of revenge in “fortnite”

Officially RotS has always taken place over 6 days (10 now, but that’s only to expand on how much happens during the montage epilogues)

Day 1: Battle of Yerbaba, Palpatine’s Rescue, Battle of Mandalore

Day 2: More Battle of Mandalore, Political maneuvering on Coruscant,
Anakin is appointed to the council
Anakin meets Palpatine at the Opera where he learns grevious is on utapau

Day 3: Obi-wan heads to Utapau,
Maul is captured.

Day 4: Obi-Wan kills Grevious, Anakin’s Fall and Order 66

Day 5: Empire Day, Palpatine declares his new empire, Obi-Wan vs Vader

Day 6: The twins are born, the decision is made to go into hiding

Day 7-10: Yoda and Obi-Wan head off for their new assignments, Ahsoka and Rex go into hiding, Vader gets up to shit, Padme’s funeral happens, Vader does more shit, Vader and Sidious stare at the death star

Within the next year:
Vader finds Ahsoka’s lightsaber(s) at the venator crash site, she is removed from the list of Jedi survivors.

Having Palpatine have no plan for Rey would be nice because it would show him falling into the same trap the Jedi are guilty of, letting their arrogance and belief in their own power prevent them from seeing what is on the horizon.

Leia dying on Naboo is a great idea, as it allows her to end where her mother started. Make this movie rhyme with the others as much as possible. It is the last after all.

And any version that is meant to include Padme surviving RotS and dying while Leia is a young child, should absolutely consider giving Leia the pendent.

Ben in exile is a great idea, and one that could probably be executed, but without dialogue between him and Rey where he says something like "I’m staying here. It is my penance.’ It could be quite a head scratcher.

Secret meeting:

I think the silent nodding in the workprint is fine as is, though this isn’t bad either.

If you weren’t trying to keep this scene and the war council from being redundant/contradicting clone wars, what would you keep or change?

Pre-Duel:

This is really nice. I think you’re right, it makes the context stronger. If you can make it work without the echo it’ll be real nice.

Absolutely, will refrain from further discussion. I only asked cus it was an editing pattern I was noticing that as snooker said is “yikes” and this seemed the only thread even remotely like a place to bring it up.

RogueLeader said:

Yeah snooker, you had some pretty good plans to set up their feelings for each other throughout. It’s too bad there’s no way to get a kiss in there at the end.

The setup could still be used though, even if there isn’t any explicit payoff. Just cutting the flirting/longing looks with Jannah and the other girl would help a lot imo.

Okay, so here’s the clip from when I was working on “Last of the Jedi” many years ago. I may get back to the project eventually, if I do it would hopefully be better, I had done a lot of the editing of the film before I had Vegas so it wasn’t great. So I’m not actually proud of it. 😕

Also I was running out of harddrive space before I finally upgraded, and I exported the whole film to 480p mpeg to to cut the file size…

But as it is, it does show that making Luke kill Fett can work.

So if we have

  • Rey on the Falcon at the end,
  • with her friends with her playing chess
  • And 3PO’s memory remains wiped

Can we add something to the final falcon scene around R2 telling 3PO the whole story as a callback to GL’s original idea of the saga being a story that was being told to someone who was unfamiliar with it?

I love the “Ben goes into Exile” idea. I think that is a much stronger button on the story than “he’s dead and that’s it I guess”

Even though the majority swung away from my vote on a few places, I would be perfectly happy with an exit that incorporated all the majority and consensus votes.

Edit: I would love to see something like this for all 9 (11) films. Questions could be in the vein of finding out what changes people prefer for saga cohesion. i.e. Do people prefer trying to make the PT completely conform to the impressions given in the OT or do we lean towards a balanced nip and tuck to clear away most inconsistencies.

Personally I want a Ben lives version and I really like DominicCobb’s idea about how that would work.

I would still want the alternate “Rey Skywalker” audio with this version, and the Falcon going into hyperspace.

Also, in addition to Jonh’s amazing “I am all the Jedi” upgrade, was something decided on for the scene where she communes with the Jedi? We still just going to hear them?

problem: new shots, out of sync music

This is amazing. I can’t wait to see this in the film. F*ck.

I agree with Hal, a purple saber version would be great.

Edit: Just watched it again, and it still gave me chills. We needed the visual representation of their help and this is amazing.
