I suppose if anyone knows where Vader’s TIE is located on the Death Star wreckage it’d be Kylo Ren, but it wasn’t seen or mentioned past A New Hope.

We also see Vader arrive on the Second Death Star in a shuttle, no indication that his custom TIE is there at all. Bringing it back for this seems highly coincidental, much more suited for the unedited sequel trilogy than the HAL version.

There’s nothing to suggest that Vader is the only person with that particular model. The Inquisitors all fly Advanced TIEs as well.

Inquisitors pilot prototype Tie Advances…

I think the dialogue works either way, and as Faraday says, it’s nice to hearken back to her origins, before she takes ownership of her new identity.

That said, I’d like to +1 for KEEPING the nice strong lightsaber ignition sound. It’s OK if it has to move to where we believe the ‘current’ one is (if we think there are now two), but that beefy PWOMP really helps sell the drama in the moment, I think.

I’m all for the new ignition sound, but there is indeed two ignitions sounds in the current build

Finally. I’m as happy with this as I’m ever going to be with the current audio sources, frankly, so now it’s up to group consensus to decide what they think of it.


Does the saber ignite twice in this audio?

I believe the “bzzt” as Rey lifts up her arm is the crackling of the lightning coming back through the silence of the scene. It doesn’t sound like the Skywalker saber ignition usually does (if anything, it almost sounds like a saber turning off), and you can still hear similar sounds again after the full audio comes back.

hmmmm everytime i have watched this seen I always took that to be the skywalker saber igniting as Rey pulls it up. Adding the second (only) ignition into the scene just makes it sound like there are two now.
