The Last Jedi: Rekindled (V3 UPDATE!)
Time

I think ROTJ and TLJ already established her force-sensitivity pretty well without her spacewalk.

In ROTJ, Luke tells her of her power and she uses it a couple of times:
“Somehow, I’ve always known…”
“He wasn’t. I can feel it…”

In TLJ, she has a mother-son force interaction with Kylo-Ren just before the bridge explosion, and she connects with Luke from her hospital bed.

I also just want to clarify that I don’t dislike the spacewalk because of how powerful/not powerful Leia is supposed to be. My brain just could never muster enough suspension of disbelief to accept that anyone blown into outer space can survive. I know there are studies suggesting it could be possible to survive for a minute or two, but in my mind, basic logic and storytelling dictates that she should have died. I would feel exactly the same if it were Luke.

I don’t like the head fake of making us think she’s dead and then using the force as a deus ex machina to get her out of the situation. It cheapens the stakes for me. I’m okay with it in Guardians of the Galaxy, because that plays a lot more fast and loose with the rules and is just plain fun (it’s also actually set up better than what happens in TLJ). But in Star Wars, that’s a basic rule of logic that I think should stick.

The Empire Strikes Back also implies that Leia is Force-sensitive.

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.

The “Anyone can be a Jedi” thing was already shown multiple times in this franchise with the fact that every single other Jedi and Sith in this franchise (aside from the Skywalkers) already existed without an important family connection.

Interesting idea with the editing choices, the cuts and whatnot feel pretty smooth and the music will be the thing to polish, as you have already noted.

However, I kind of have a logical issue with Han calling out … so smugglers can also do the whole force ghost/speaking thing like Jedi? I know Anakin got a “Chosen One Pass” to do it, but Han as well?

How about he can be a projection, like Luke was on Crait?

I like this idea a lot…I always hated that scene of Rey lifting the rocks with such minimum training as its just makes her look so OP with no explanation. I always wanted an edit to appear as if Luke is lifting the rocks and not Rey. However your idea ties into TROS themes so it’s a lot better.

Agreed. The scene would be much more believable if the film took place a few years after The Force Awakens instead of immediately after.

This isn’t real. Whoever posted this just reversed the shot.

RogueLeader said:

Yes, seriously, please don’t share anything from there.

Sorry, I thought this was real to the point where I felt like it needed to be mentioned. Haven’t seen TRoS since release day, my bad…

Part of me likes the idea that it’s the midway point between blue and red, but also thematically there isn’t really anything in the movie to set that up. Also the fact that Mace has a purple saber obscures that idea.

I read a theory I really like that suggests color distinguishes alignment -
Red: Extremist dark side user (ex: Maul)
Orange: Dark side user with a significant light side pull
Yellow: True balance (ex: Rey)
Green: Roguish light side user (ex: Qui-Gon)
Blue: Traditional light side user (ex: Obi-Wan)
Purple: Extremist light side user (ex: Windu)

Now that I think about it, I probably found it here. Forget where it’s from lol.

Hmm… thinks of future potential edits of Kylo having an orange lightsaber

@poppasketti I know you probably won’t be doing this change for V3, but can you remove Luke brushing his shoulder on Crait in a later version of the edit? It is just so on-the-nose, considering the fact that he walked out of the blaster fire visibly “unharmed” already showed that he was unharmed. It also feels out-of-place and disrupts the tension of the scene.

Is the baby’s name supposed to be “Aska”? Is that what that means?

I think he meant to say Ahsoka.

Had to look up what that is.
Do not want.

I like what Rian did with TLJ that anyone can be a Jedi, but that it can run in families.

That is 100% certifiable utter bullshit. That idea was introduced with the very introduction and description of the Force in A New Hope, the expanded definition of the Force in The Empire Strikes Back, and basically the entire context of the series. Characters like Obi-Wan, Yoda, Ahsoka, and so many others already existed as special people or heroes without an important family connection. Luke’s actualization as a character and as a Jedi isn’t in the power of his bloodline, but the strength of his character to go against what others expected of him because of his family.

Anyone who parrots this pretentious nonsense should probably rewatch the other films and try paying attention.

I think it would be cool to get an Old Republic story where we see opposing Jedi philosophies come to a head, not in a violent way, but where we see Jedi debate on the nature of the Force and the dark side. Maybe some Jedi see the dark side as an evil that needs to be purged, where others see it as an aspect of all life that needs to be understood.

That would be great to watch, they can probably pull inspiration from early church history with their theological and doctrinal difference, councils etc .

Too complex and cerebral. People just want white hats and black hats whacking colour-coded glow sticks together.

Then why did it not kill either Kylo or Rey?

In the scene jarbear is talking about during their first force connection, Kylo says to Rey: “You’re not doing this, the effort would kill you.”

Later, in the Throne Room, Snoke says: “It was I who bridged you’re minds.”

I’m not sure how this applies to TROS. I guess Palpatine continued their mind-link?

I see… but why did it not kill Snoke?

On the subject of Palpatine, the final interaction between Rey and Kylo in The Last Jedi before the Falcon got off of Crait implied that the Force mind link is permanent after Snoke’s death.
