Star Wars Episode II, The Hidden Planet (1956).
Time

The opening crawl from the long-thought-lost Star Wars Episode II, The Hidden Planet (1956).

Immensely superior to the 2002 remake, The Hidden Planet captures the mythic nature of Kurosawa (The Seven Samurai, The Hidden Fortress), the suspense and intrigue of Jules Dassin (Rififi, The Naked City) and the fun and adventure of the 30’s and 40’s serials (Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers).

Awesome.

I think the idea of having large ships hovering above Mos Espa could be interesting and further differentiate it from Mos Eisley. Also, adding things to the soundscape like the distant sounds of laser fire etc.

Keep up the good work, I’m loving each update on this project!

Thank you! The laser blast i could do with someones death scream (Maybe a good wilhelm scream) in the back ground. Not sure what you mean by ships in the sky tho. I don’t wan’t to imply imperial control or anything. Lawlessness i like, but id need more context for the ships. I was thinking about sneaking a mandalorian in somewhere. Not the main guy but one of the other ones maybe if i can

I was thinking more like freighters/ cargo ships. I like the visual of Anakin’s dream being just out of reach. Similar to the planes flying over Rick’s cafe in Casablanca.

Ahhh ok. I have a scene in mind i want to try to create (binary sunset moment for Ani) that i think it would go good in. Plus i can try to add more traffic possibly to the sky in other shots.

Oh nice, Anakin definitely needs his own binary sunset moment.

I think the sabre hidden in the rocks should be Ben’s. The one we see in the flashback in TLJ. It could be easily implied that he abandoned his sabre after destroying the temple, and Luke found it and hid it the walls of his hut. Metaphorically, Rey repairing Luke’s mistake. Also, it’s as if the force is aware that Ben has turned and his calling for his sabre to be returned to him.

The tricky think is Ben uses Anakin’s saber throughout the third act, while Rey uses Leia’s. It would take a lot of work to swap out the hilts for every shot.

That’s a very good point. Though if someone could accomplish it, I think it would be the best option narratively and tie the film in a little closer with TLJ and make the three films seem a little more cohesive.

Something I would like to see is a dirtier/ smokier Mos Espa, closer to the concept art. The same with slave hovels, I feel they should be dimly lit, not warm and inviting. During the sand storm, the lights should flicker. The Phantom Menace makes slavery look far too pleasant. We should be rooting for Anakin to escape this environment and feel his pain at leaving his mother there.

What if it shifted colors like a mood ring?

Okay, I gave it a shot.
In this edit, the cracks are a dull silver, to match the rest of the helmet, then when he gets pissed off they flare red:

That’s a lot cooler than I expected!

Could you do one where they’re just black? If not, no stress. I hate the return of the helmet. The film wastes valuable screen time showing it be re-formed without any context, besides an f-u to Rian Jonson. The audience can just assume he made a new one or repaired it between films. Currently, years after destroying it, he just decides to get a monkey to fix it?

Also, JJ’s obsession with adding random bits of red to everything infuriates me. 3PO’s arm, the tie fighter, the training remote, Rens helmet.

I have a kind of idea that Ren should re craft the helmet specifically to block out Palpatine’s whisperings. There could be a very fun connection where early in the movie, before Ren discovers Exegol, he’s communing with Vader’s helmet, and he hears these Sith whispers. After he meets Palpatine, during the Mask creation scene, he hears the whispers until they suddenly whimper out as soon as he puts on the mask. He is resisting Palpatine immediately.

I cannot for the life of me find an HD version of the TV spot that has footage of him putting on the mask, so maybe an edited shot from Force Awakens or The Last Jedi might work.

This I really like this!

Another idea could be to have Luke’s voice haunting him.
