Unusual <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

Ackbagel is working on a clip of Rey instinctively using telekinesis to unlock the restraints (removing her using the mind trick), for his edit of The Force Awakens. Anyone want to help him out with visuals and stuff for that specific clip?

Now, I know one’ll probably say that the reason Rey knows how to use the mind trick is because of the dyad, which I would agree with, but one should never have to go outside of a film in order for it to make sense on its own, in this case The Force Awakens (it’s why films such as Battlefield Earth, The Emoji Movie and even the prequels are still criticized to this day).

Also, the backgrounds in 0:11 and 1:15 look out-of-place in comparison to the rest of the Rey scenes in the clip.

Could you expand on this? I’m not seeing what you mean. The background at 0:11 is just what is in the film. I didn’t change anything regarding backgrounds. Same at 1:15, that’s just how it is in the movie. It’s all from the same scene, just re-ordered and the backgrounds weren’t touched.

At 0:15 the shot is in a room with small bars in the background, the next shot we cut back to the blue-ish metal room Rey is in. Regarding 1:15, I meant to say 1:14 when the hand is moving, it’s in the same room with the small bars in the background.

I know this would be considered necroposting, but for those who remember or have at least seen this edit we all may know that I*** has Ackbar survive to tell the Resistance people that there may be a spy among them, which is supposed to explain why Holdo refuses to tell Poe anything about her plan.

The concept of a potential spy being used for a purpose like this is inherently broken, Holdo’s plan involves everyone else having to get onto the transports and escape the First Order, any spies will immediately find out what the plan is once they see at least a single transport and contact the First Order about this.

Is it possible to properly remove the “all” from both the lines of dialogue in that final exchange between Palpatine and Rey to make the dialogue less clunky, without suddenly skipping a couple of frames or anything?

I think it’s possible to do. Give me a bit and I’ll post a link of it. Kinda distracted by USA news… 😳

You said you were going to do this edit?

I am not having her use a mind trick on the guard, as my original post explains that she doesn’t even know what that is. I am hoping I can find a way to cut this into a scene of her simply concentrating on her bindings and using the force to spring them open. I find that much more believable for a neophyte force user to achieve rather than using a very dominating mind trick.

Let alone how to use it (properly).

The Last Jedi: Rekindled (Released) (V3 UPDATE!)
Time

Would it be possible to have Luke not ignite his green lightsaber on Kylo? I have seen some impressive edits of this on YouTube where the green glow is removed from Kylo and his eyes. Kylo wakes up, sees Luke hovering with his lightsaber out and looking distraught, and then Ben “turns on him” and Luke defends. I think this will help greatly to “re-characterize” Luke in the film and make Ben’s decision more his own. The whole “pulling a weapon on my unarmed nephew” is still something a lot of fans struggle with.

As much as I disagree with the concept of Luke thinking about killing Ben, it has to stay. It’s supposed to show him making a mistake that results in Ben’s fall. The change I would suggest is make it seem more “instinctual,” since the visuals frame it as Luke consciously slowly pulling out the lightsaber, standing there and igniting it, as much as I disagree with Rian’s notion that Luke is instinctively murderous, too.

Since Snoke=Palpatine, is it possible to remove his mention of bridging their minds? If Palpatine was controlling Snoke then why would their connection be a surprise?! Removing Snoke inconsistences is key to making a more cohesive trilogy

Snoke is not really a VR headset for Palpatine to play on, he’s more of his own person who listens to Palpatine.

THE SACRED JEDI TEXTS!!! I think the lines between Yoda/Luke, “ahh, read them have you? Page turners they were not!” Needs to go. It makes Luke seem like he didn’t even read/study the books, but then in TROS we find out Luke did study them and annotated them. I suggest, “Luke: The Sacred Jedi Texts! Yoda: Yes, yes. Wisdom they held…”

This helps us accept the notion that Rey apparently learned Force heal from the books.
