Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *

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.

You follows he together, you take him to come to want to kill off me here!

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.

Poppa, great job with the latest videos! Changing the “targeting” makes the logical conclusion in the person’s mind when watching the crash scene. It’s little things like that that perfects thing. Marvelous!

Also, the same thing with the particles. You know how my eyes work and all, I see the difference in those two. Very nice. Even before when you added those effects it helped tie things in nicely.

It just keeps getting better and better.

Also, what about adding an Obi Wan line? I still don’t get the rationale for including this.

It isn’t necessary at all or adds anything helpful, it would be more distracting than anything, personally.

Recall too, Kylo/Ben already established in the movie previously between the first “force call/connection” with Rey that such a feat (Force Projection or whatever), the effort would kill a person (Jedi/Sith/Whatever.) So there literally is no need for someone/something to tell Luke after he does it to “let go” or “It’s ok, you can die now” or something.

I’m always up for hearing ideas and whatnot … but I respectfully couldn’t get behind it.

Then why did it not kill either Kylo or Rey?

You can never get rid of your darkside, you can reject it, fight it, but never get rid of it. Its a constant battle and that’s the point. Taking the path of the light is vowing to fight this battle.

To be fair Yoda conquered his dark side in The Clone Wars and yet he never struggled with it ever again

Pressuring Luke to kill his father isn’t very lightside ; )

Well… at least Yoda wasn’t intending to kill Vader by himself.

I think it would put Rey on an even footing with kylo on an emotion level, in the hanger scene you can have Kylo tell Rey “we are heirs of the darkside and we will take it’s throne” really lean in on the similarities between them -the “dyad”. this would make the ending far more impactfull (especially if we make ben live) as we have them both reject their innate darkness and begin the future with the light-It rhymes.

And then Rey still struggles with the dark side as if the fact that she rejected her inner darkness meant nothing at all, just like Luke in The Last Jedi where he has a dark side temptation to murder the sleeping Ben Solo as if rejecting his inner darkness after realizing that he is following in Vader’s footsteps meant nothing at all.
