Hehe, nice. And great trooper voice, no offense intended to RogueLeader.

I suppose there’s not enough time in the footage to have the trooper address 3PO before his line, but I imagine it being funnier for it to be a direct answer to a slightly irrelevant question.

Could the trooper maaaaybe be trying to talk over him for the first two seconds, as though 3PO interrupted him to say that?

The shorting out is not a necessity, but seemed to fit in naturally with the added crackle effect conceptually.

The puppet stuff, still looking forward to it!

Kijimi graffiti could be cool, to hint at the pending ‘rise’ of ‘Skywalker’ in the heart of the people, if indeed someone wishes to bring it about. Otherwise, it’s not necessary.

And a “canon” suggestion that in TLJ no one came to help because the First Order left the phone off the hook is dumb as hell. I’m really starting to not care much at all for “canon” surrounding this movie or the ST overall. Death of the “author” is best for those, it seems. (I see this as a separate concern from not going out of my way to make edits inconsistent with books-and-things-like-that to come.)

I liked RogueLeader’s idea of introducing the B portion of Across the Stars to their hand moment in TLJ and then in TROS. But I don’t plan to implement it in my projects. I like the existing music in the scene, and I think it’d be confusing or weird to insert it there and nowhere else.

Then again, ‘Luke and Leia’ as Jannah meets Lando, so…

Whether it’s a GPS coordinate or knowing to use the knife in a mystical way, it’s still a piece of exposition that they needed 3PO in order to reach. I guess it does soften the impact of his sacrifice in a way not to have something pretty concrete to gain from it, that’s fair. In movie parlance, you’d expect information like that not to be costly, and would arise on its own. Y’know, sort of like how it does in V1 with Rey hearing whispers.

I’ll give it to you, that is something to weigh and consider in assessing this potential alteration.
