Eh, I’ve seen the Battle of the Heroes and DotF music mentioned multiple times here, but personally don’t know why we’d want to borrow a prequel-specific theme for the final Kylo/Rey duel.

-This is suppose to be the ending of all episodes, it should also include PT OST, not only OST from the OT.

-DOTF was promised in several tv spots:

-DOTF is the most emblematic and epic lightsaber duel soundtrack of the entire saga, and it should be in the final lightsaber duel.

-Kylo v Rey duel is suppose to be a motif to Anakin’s and Obi-wan Duel in mustafar

-This movie doesn’t have anything meaningful to say and is just fan service, the more fan service that could be included that helps to tie the entire saga, the better.

-Myself and a lot of people wanted/expected DOTF in that movie as john williamns promised that every iconic soundtrack of SW was going to be in TROS.

-DOTF is awesome is a shame that only is present in 2 of 9 films.

-Hal9000 if you don’t really want DOTF in the main TROS audio, at least put an alternative audio that includes it, for those who really want it in the movie (like myself) :d.

Meanwhile, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren has traveled to Mustafar in search of a rumored Imperial fleet that would allow him to destroy any threat to his power…

I’m not sure about that part, a rumored imperial fleet from where and why?

I think that would be better if kylo was investigating a rumored rouge Imperial fleet still loyal to “Snoke”.

A thought has occurred to me, is posible to have both “Just Rey” and “Rey Skywalker” in the film.

Replacing “And… i’m all the jedi” with “And… i’m just rey” we get rey finally accepting who she is and how unnimportant her origin actually is, after accepting her own “value” and defeating palpatine, she considers herself worthy of the name skywalker .

If this was some Indy film then “just Rey,” sure.

Well to be fair, TLJ is almost an Indy film and this is a “sequel” to that (well it isn’t but it should be), Rey skywalker would have worked if she was a “nobody”, but the last skywalker being a poweful jedi related in someway to palpatine feels wrong

You just summed up my current feelings on this movie. It’s definitely the weakest movie of the new trilogy, but I don’t think the constant hate for it, especially on this site, is warranted. I think it can be turned into a worthwhile movie with a bit of editing magic.

I really really hate the movie :d, but for the sake of our sanity we should all focus on fix what we have …

Hal what are your thoughts on making Rey’s parents assholes who sold her like TLJ stated?

You know what. This abomination really put TLJ into perspective for me. I finally appreciate the story decisions Rian made in relation to Rey, Luke and Snoke. Rian opened JJ’s mystery box, discovered that there’s really nothing there and made his own story. JJ went back to the old discarded box, and…also found nothing.

A shame that a lot of people just say " TROS its bad because TLJ!" without any thought

Doesn’t he state that pretty directly?

The problem is that his intentions are not clear, so he wants kylo to kill her first, then he wants to take his body, then he discovers the dyad and uses it to recover… i don’t know if he had a plan with rey and kylo to begin with or if he was making in it on the go.

Exactly. JJ had no idea what to do with his own characters.

Is funny that Rian didn’t use the Knights of Ren on the throne scene because he didn’t want them to be wasted, but JJ didn’t knew what to do with them, so they were useless and were killed easier than Snoke guards.

“Your father threw you away like trash, as did his father… Emperor Palpatine.”

I love that, that phrase makes Rey spiral towards the darkside much more belivable and in line with TLJ.

So it would be

A) Palpatine failure of son/clone, which was abandoned because it didn’t have the force, was a piece of s**t, sold rey for drinking money to Unkar Plutt without knowing that she had the force like his father, Palpatine senses Rey power once she grows up or the dyad and wants her dead or to obtain the Kylo/Rey dyad power to fully recover.

B) Palpatine failure of son/clone, which was abandoned because it didn’t have the force, was a piece of s**t, sold rey and to Palpatine which had a force vision of her power or the dyad in the force and thought about using that power to fully recover, Unkar Plutt was going to take care of her until she was old enough to meet kylo and for the dyad to happen.

I prefer A, i think is much more simpler than B
