I don’t think so for this project, but I sincerely agree its an interesting idea I wouldn’t mind see explored!

And, if the source material were there for the “more than a clone” line I’d be all for it. But the off the cuff microphone>speaker>phone recording we have to work with just isn’t there. 😕
I do think that TROS:A as it is presents at least a better version of Palpatine returning, with a bit less muddy water. It’s more clearly implied he’s a clone than in the original.

I don’t mind posting ideas here! Especially if this project is idir’s TROS ‘home base’ for now.

I don’t think I would want to go that route, though. Luke appears as he walks out of the ship, and a static shot of him waiting to do so seems to undermine what that shot is trying to do.

I would have liked MORE Luke in the movie, though!

In other news, I have a crawl from Sir Ridley now. I think whenever snooker is happy with the Naboo shot, another workprint will be in order.

Oh yeah, and if anyone so inclined wishes to add a distant Vader’s castle to the reverse shot when Kylo picks up and looks at the Wayfinder, I won’t try to stop you.

However cool that would be, it’s not necessary, and I’m happy merely to namedrop Mustafar in the crawl. That’s enough to tie it into Vader and make sense why there were two: one for the master and one for the apprentice.
