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

I’ve seen multiple people talk about the idea of hinting at the return of the emperor earlier in the sequel trilogy so that it doesn’t feel as out of nowhere as it did. Here’s a mockup of an idea that could be a sort of epilogue to TLJ and possibly replace the broom boy scene. It would hint at Kylo’s new mission/goal to find the Wayfinder.

Exactly, I don’t know that perfectly white balancing every scene makes it better when there may be artistic intent behind the grade. That’s not to say you can’t make it better, though.

This is what bothers me so much when I see people complaining about color correcting. I think sometimes people misunderstand the “correcting” part of the phrase. That said, of course it’s fair to have personal opinions on grades.

Something people miss too is sometimes it’s not just the grade. Like the Star destroyers being so blue, that’s the lighting playing a part as well.

Absolutely. Where a blanket sweep “look” or “style” does become an issue, though, is when an entire film in a trilogy doesn’t match the other two films. It makes for a really jarring viewing experience when watching back to back to back. Lord of the Rings is a great example of a trilogy that succeeded at having a consistent aesthetic and color grade across all three films.

I agree about the hilt. Luke using his father’s saber at the end never really made much sense to me though. Sure it’s the “Skywalker saber” passed down from generation to generation, but Kylo literally saw it get ripped in two a few scenes before. Wouldn’t that be a dead giveaway that Luke wasn’t really there? Or at least a huge hint that something wasn’t right about the situation? Plus, I kind of like the symbolism of him showing up with his green saber to use it to right the mistake he committed with it in the past.

Has anyone taken a stab at changing Luke’s saber to his green one during the battle of Crait? I’ve changed the blade color in the current draft of my edit, but the hilt would take more After Effects skill than I have. I’ve also thought it might be cool to replace Ben’s silver hilt in the hut to be the Skywalker saber. This could give more depth to the line “that saber, it belongs to me” in TFA.
