The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)
Time

I don’t mind it, but I certainly don’t have the ability to do that. I’m not sure outright black robes would be all that appropriate, though a greyish color could have been nice. Anything to distinguish it from her costume in TFA, and it would be a meeting ground between her TFA and TLJ wardrobes.

It strikes me as a huge job, though, BUT IF someone did want to go through all the work for her entire screentime across the film, I would include it. But… that’d be a huge job. So, I just say “if.” Not asking for it, but would accept it if it were to be found to exist.

Sequel Opinions
Time

I really enjoyed TFA, though I had hoped they’d gotten the retreading out of their system and was glad JJ Abrams wasn’t doing the whole trilogy. It smelled like Star Wars, though it felt a little anemic. With a few particularly frustrating aspects, it bore its flaws pretty well and served to get me excited for what was to follow.

TLJ, while overly contentious and contrarian at times, offered something of substance grown out of TFA. I had a journey about this movie, going from displeased about muh hero Luke to digging the gist of it. It elevated the sequel trilogy somewhat. It took some risks, but let’s be honest: it still retreaded the OT pretty hard.

TROS was just silly, and that’s too bad. I think they would rather have put out something comfortably mediocre and uninspired than take up any real inspiration. I could only laugh, and I’m glad I could at least do that. It’s the anti-TFA, making you less excited about this whole thing and strangling the characters back into nothingness. Hindsight is 20/20, but it’s hard to imagine Trevorrow producing something worse, even with the sad passing of Fischer. JJ was the absolute incorrect choice in any artistic sense.

I’ll have to keep this in mind for a potential V2. It’a a change done by the ‘Fixing Disney Star Wars’ guys. Whatever you think of them, I thought this was an interesting little tweak.

Zorri says that the bounty on Rey may cover them.

Rey knocks them all down and draws her saber on Zorri and she points a gun at her.

Rey: “We could really use your help. Please.”

Zorri: “[Not that you care, but I think you’re] okay.”

Rey: [“I care.”] Offers her a hand

This tweak seems to reduce the ‘fan fiction character’ phenomena in which an adversary seems to make an odd statement by complimenting Rey.

The ‘Custom Special Edition’ That Almost Wasn’t, But Then Was (Released)
Time

OP updated to reflect an update to ROTJ, essentially remastering it to use OhTeeDee’s color corrected 19SE and OTD83 projects. To me, these two sources make the OOT and SE material blend together more seamlessly than I have ever seen before. I am very satisfied with this presentation of ROTJ, and thank OhTeeDee again for his help in providing such awesome source material. And of course to those behind 4K83, and SkyDude, who made even that possible. I will similarly update ANH and ESB in time.
