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

For the scene when Luke surrenders himself to Vader, is it still being considered changing Vader’s line from “Obi-Wan once thought as you do” to “Your mother once thought as you do”?

An interesting thought I’ve had recently is that they might try to make this line make more sense retroactively through the Kenobi show. As in, before they fight Obi-Wan is like, “Come with me, it’s still not too late.” We’ll see.

I don’t see the problem with Pryde saying Palpatine & co. “conjured legions of Star Destroyers”, I don’t think he means that they literally materialized the ships out of thin air. It’s just a riposte to that other officer calling them “conjurers”, he’s simply stating they have brought forth a large & previously unknown fleet, as if being “conjured”.

In any rate I don’t think Pryde would be privy to the inner machinations of the Sith Eternal and their ‘fleet conjuring rituals’, so I don’t see how this line could be read as him explaining the origin of the Sith Fleet.

On the other hand, Kylo was the only person who even went to Exegol (as far as we know), so all any of them would know is what Kylo told them. Why would Kylo, in his official report, say that Palps had “conjured” Star Destroyers if he hadn’t? I’ve always interpreted as Pryde being literal (not to mention, it’s the closest thing the original film offered to an explanation for the Sith Fleet’s existence).

Personally, I’m not super concerned about this either way. If Pryde/the script wants to say that the Sith Fleet was conjured…fine, whatever. It’s not the stupidest thing in the film by a long shot. But if Ascendant does want to downplay that whole aspect…like Chase said, it would probably be more in line with that goal to trim the line.

Plus, the intel from Hux that Poe shares outright states that they’ve been BUILDING the fleet for years.

And even then, one possible interpretation of that statement is that they’ve been building ON the fleet. As in, there was a stockpile, but they’ve also been expanding upon it and upgrading the weapons (BTW this is the answer that I think makes the most sense because it’s a hybrid approach).

Is the “Captain Hux” ranking still being kept in with Faraday’s efforts ending?

Also, I meant to have this out weeks ago, but here is a sample pitch as to how we could try getting the line, “You’re just a clone” into the film.

Is that the same line SpeakingOfAi sent? Cuz it’s even rougher than I remember.

Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread
Time

I’ve done it in novel format, if that’s of any help. Obviously this is more for ideas than anything:

"Ben,” came a young man’s voice from behind him. He turned.
The young man had long, curly hair and a slight grin on his face. His entire person was partially transparent, gleaming with a blue light, and adorned in the robes of a Jedi.
“I’ve been wanting to speak with you,” he said.
Kylo blinked. He could hardly believe his eyes. “Grandfather?”
His smile grew wider. “Yes,” he said, striding toward him. “In my true form. Not the lie Palpatine wanted you to see.”
“You’re just a manifestation of Vader’s failure,” Kylo said.
“No,” Anakin said, his eyes full of compassion. “Vader was my greatest failure.”
Kylo looked away from his eyes, gripping the snippet in his hand even tighter. Snoke had told him that Vader had suffered a moment of weakness when he chose to save his son over power. Another lie, it seemed.
“What’s that in your hand?” Anakin asked.
Kylo had a feeling he already knew what it was. He opened his hand anyway, revealing the small trinket in his palm. Its leather strap was looped loosely around his gloved fingers.
“I made that, you know,” Anakin said, reminiscing. “A gift for your grandmother. Before I took her life in my lust for power…”
“I’m being torn apart,” he muttered. “I want to be free of this pain.”
“Ben,” Anakin said, his face suddenly grave. “If I had only been selflessly devoted to those I loved, I would have avoided a lifetime of pain.”
“It’s too late.” It was something the voices in his head had always said. It’s too late for you. They’ll never take you back. But this time it was true, because: “She’s already gone. He’s gone.”
“Your parents are gone. But Rey isn’t. Finish what I truly started. Save the one you love.”
He stared at his grandfather, afraid to believe his words. Afraid of what he was feeling. Domination was all Kylo Ren understood.
“I know what I have to do,” Kylo admitted, his voice tremulous. “But I don’t know if I have the strength to do it.”
“I believe in you,” Anakin said. “And your father would, too.”
Kylo Ren turned, and launched his lightsaber into the air. It sailed in a high arc, far above the wreckage, and disappeared into a haze of ocean spray.
Ben Solo turned back around, and the ghost of Anakin Skywalker was gone. He was alone in the middle of the sea.
For the first time in more than a decade, Ben’s mind was clear. No longer did he desire conquest, only love. To give it to others and receive it. He stuffed the japor snippet back into his pocket.

Random thought of the day: would it be possible to replace Luke’s “Leia knew it, too” with “I told Leia” so as to preserve the surrounding dialog? I ask this because it’s definitely plausible for Luke to have manifested to Leia either by voice or Force ghost in the year following TLJ. Definitely still implausible for her to have come up with that on her own, though.

Hello! These are the shots in which it has been possible for me to change Luke’s hair, there are other shots in which it is impossible: a thousand generations … it is impossible, for me at least.
I have also lost two kilos of weight to Luke

I’ve gotta be honest: I could never tell there was anything wrong with the fixes jonh applied here. It all looks great to me. It’s probably one of those things I’d notice if somebody pointed it out to me but anything is better than the original lol.

How is it possible for the First Order to be recharging the Starkiller? If it fired when the sun was depleted, do they have a spare sun? It seems to me that it was designed as a grand single-use weapon, or alternatively it would need to be moved after each use.

Think of it like this: when you charge a battery, do you use all of its energy at once, or do you use chunks of it at a time? That’s the same way Starkiller Base works in this edit. They used up a lot of the energy to destroy the Hosnian system. It then took some time to recalibrate the weapon to fire on the Resistance since it just ate up a lot of the energy. But my point is that there was some energy left after firing.

I think if the Biomes shot were to be included, a lot of color grading and VFX to change the landscape would have to be done since the Mustafar atmosphere in Biomes is based on Rogue One, not The Rise of Skywalker.

Our current shot is literally modified Rogue One footage so I don’t see this being a big deal. This is the one change I’m really hoping will make it in time for v2.
