Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

I can agree with that, Eman. The supposed leaks suggest an awfully convoluted plot, so I hope it doesn’t feel super rushed.
Seems to me that viewing Episodes I through VIII in order would lead one to expect IX to function as something of an epilogue rather than a bombastic conclusion, since there hasn’t been anything much specific being built up to.

The Rise of Skywalker Crackpot Theories Thread

Seeing that book cover makes it click into place why I find most of the new canon stuff less appealing than Legends.
The new stuff looks new, and the old stuff looks old and pulpy. I like the crappy hand drawn stuff and it feels more real to me somehow. The content of new canon is fine, I guess, but it all strikes me as less authentic.

Not to get off topic, just saying.

Perhaps I missed something, but what do you mean by finding Luke gone? I assumed TLJ would show Rey arriving at the island and blend into Luke receiving the saber.
I suppose if that’s all I can do it would serve the purpose of temporary compatibility for a pre-IX viewing.
I might be able to try something with this today.

The Last Jedi: Rekindled (RELEASED!)
Time

There’s a dead stormtrooper revealed as Finn stands up, fairly close to camera and only viewed from one angle. A 2D image could probably be manipulated to take its place to serve as a dead Phasma. She’d even be in about the right place based on where the characters were before the kaboom.

I might even go for this change in the post-IX revision of my TLJ edit, if Phasma can be featured like this. Finn would make his character-arc-defining resolution away from nihilism/hiding by telling DJ, “you’re wrong,” then confirm it by going “where [they] belong.”

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>

Good point. If it’s in a stationary orbit, like our moon, could simulating a slight camera move be enhanced by slightly shifting the background Endor element at the same time? (To subtly imply the rotation of the DS we see is the result of the camera moving.)

JEDIT: Hell, for all I know Ady will just somehow depict the DS as rotating and show its unfinished side head-on sometimes.
