I just completed a fanedit on this um reboot/sequel/ of Star Wars the force copy awakens.
I did not like the flick as much as I wanted.
I disliked the movie so much I edited a copy with laugh tracks. haha.
But while I was editing the movie with the laugh tracks a funny thing happened.
My mind went to work on this movie and figured out a way so Han dies different and not by the light sabre.
Instead of getting the sabre in the chest, Han dies from his son using the force.
So after that I had to finish the movie.
No heavy handed bb8 appearance in the beginning, no monsters on Han’s ship, no trench run, no Luke giving up, no mention of the word “son”, no scene where the little alien takes off the goggles, no unexplained r2d2 sleeping thing (now r2d2 is just charging), Han’s son only freaks out once, no helicopter scene around luke, etc.
New title crawl, renamed the movie to “The Force Within.”
Now it plays out better. Like it was made for adults. Less eye rolling.
