Who the heck ARE the Sith in RoS?
Time

In TPM it seems safe to assume their were two Sith, and they were so undercover the Jedi thought they were extinct.

In RoS we have a giant SafeCo Stadium filled with Sith, a Sith fleet, a Sith language the Republic banned, and secret Sith followers like the bounty hunter who caught Rey’s folks.

Where did these people come from? Was this galaxy spanning religious organization (including secret Sith hood ornaments) spring up in the 40 years between RotS and TFA?

And what do they beleive in? When you ARE A SITH LORD it’s about a struggle for personal power. What does Hooded Sith Enthusiast #35961 in the giant crowd think of all this? Is he happy living in dirt, wearing a hood all the time, waiting for Palpy to make his move?

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

Watched a bit of TFA last night.

When I saw TRoS I noticed how much it gave the middle finger to TLJ that I didnt notice JJ gave the iggy to his own film.

TFA makes a HUGE point that the blue lightsabers is Reys. It calls her. She gets it when Kylo wants it.

But all of a sudden in TRoS its Leias to give to Rey when Rey ‘earns’ it.

I’m sure I’m not the first to notice this, but it’s just one more element in the last movie that is just wonky.

'The Cancelled STAR WARS Episode 9 Animated' youtube video - by Mr Sunday Movies
Time

I do not think you can JUDGE an unmade project… BUT…

I think the problems with RoS were chiefly thematic, both contradicting earlier themes and generally being unexciting ideas (“it’s all about Skywalkers and Palpatines”)

THIS story (DELIGHTFULLY animated) seems to have a much more interesting set of ideas and themes behind it, BUILDING new ideas, like Kylo’s downhill slide, or Rey’s new ideas on the Jedi.

And straight jacking a Star Destroyer would have been fun to see.

IDEAS are a dime a dozen (look at this website) and execution is ultimately what matters, but this sure looks like it COULD have been a fine film, more satisfactorily concluding the series.

Idea: THE RISE OF THE BOOST CUT
Time

Probably need a new title. Maybe “THE FINAL ORDER” but damned if I’d know how to make a scrolly gimmick.

CUT:
Like 2 min of dialogue that says Rey is a Palpatine spread across 3 conversations. This does not effect the plot in any real way. The conversations stay, just those offending sentences.

CUT:
When in the final battle Finn says “Rose, leave me to die to blow up this ship” and Rose goes “Why?” and Finn goes “Because fuck the theme of the last movie!” Same things happen, but just those lines are cut.

CUT:
Weird old lady who, like a Monty Python sketch, snuck up on Rey in a totally barren flat plain. It ends with the yellow lightsaber… maybe put Ghost Luke and Leia a little earlier. I dunno. That might be hard.

That’s it. Much better film. Not perfectly to my taste, but without anything that makes me cringe.

The Sequal Trilogy... in 1985

I mean, it would be entirely different and not open to useful speculation. Would it use Hamill, Fisher, and Ford playing their characters just a few years older? Would it recast for a plot taking place hundreds of years in the future? Who knows?

Exactly. So obviously DEBBIE REYNOLDS as Old Leia.

What about STEPHEN COLLINS (from ST:TMP and the recently cancelled Tales of the Gold Monkey) as Poe Dameron?
