For the saber toss, I remember there was a much more dramatic take of that from the documentary. It seamed to really fit with the TFA ending. The issue was the string holding the saber being visible, and that Luke’s hand was pre-CG.

I think a combination of the the footage here, the original, and the early teaser, would make for a more serious and dramatic version of the scene.

Man last I check there were 12 pages… I have a lot to catch up on lol

I feel you lol

btw did you guys figure out the Vader castle scene? (To the Op and thread)

It seems no one’s tackled it yet.

Once I did a very rough concept of where the castle would be placed, but that would be it.

That looks great. I don’t think the issue lies in the place in which it’s positioned, rather I think it’s the size and perhaps the model itself that seems a little off.

I think the castle should look more distant, towering down from above.
Kinda like in this picture:

I think this image here could be made smaller to fit into the background of the shot.

Forgive my terrible memory, but why are all these Star Destroyers exploding over random planets? (I only saw TROS once, so I might be forgetting something).

I moved all of this victory montage after the Resistance victory scene on Ajan Kloss. That way it can be The Resistance and their new fleet aiding in taking down the First/Final Order.

That’s a great idea.

I know we’ve pretty much retired the Ajan Kloss = Naboo idea, but the more I think about it, Ajan Kloss we wouldn’t have to change the canon to make Ajan Kloss into a planet we’ve seen before: On Wookieepedia, there’s no official information as to where Luke’s Jedi Temple (from the flashbacks in TLJ) was located, and given that it was where Luke trained Leia it would make sense for Ajan Kloss to be that same planet.
Can anyone think of a way to make that clearer in the movie?

That’s a really good idea.
In the scene where Rey looks into the distance, I wonder if the temple could be rotoscoped into that shot somehow. It would kinda set up her training a new generation of Jedi down the line.

I think I might have found the perfect spot to sneak in Vader’s castle!

You can literally grab the silhouette of Vader’s castle from the deleted scene here:

And mask it into the the background of this shot here:

Oh yeah, and if anyone so inclined wishes to add a distant Vader’s castle to the reverse shot when Kylo picks up and looks at the Wayfinder, I won’t try to stop you.

One can mask this landscape into the background of that shot:

Showing that Kylo Ren’s slaughter happened below Vader’s Castle, perhaps even where Anakin fell at the hands of Obiwan.

“At last the work of generations is complete, the day of victory is at hand, the day of the sith.
Send the fleet to the galaxy…let it burn.
The Final order begins”
“Yes my lord”

I would say this might be best. (Might have to skip the “Fortnight” message part altogether.) But, the Pryde Palpatine scene would either become very short, or lost, though. I do like spelling out that the First Order is going there to man the ship, and that scene is the only real way in any version of the film to soundly imply that.

Since kijjimi doesn’t get blown up in your version the line “Send the a ship to a world they know” is gone by default. The only line you actually lose is “the final order begins” which isn’t really much and you don’t lose any info from the scene.

“The Princess of Alderaan has disrupted our plan, but her foolish act will be in vain. Come to me on Exogol, general Pryde”

“As I served you in the old war, I serve you know.”

“She will come, her friends will follow”
End Scene

This would work nicely as a pay off for the leaked message at the start of the film. Yes Hux was the First Order spy, but Pryde was a spy of another sort. Perhaps this could imply that Hux knew about Prydes allegiance and wanted to rat him out to Ren, while also revealing the Final Order. Two birds one stone.
