Had some time to fiddle with “Leia sensed the end” some more. Still needs some clean up, but…is this at least in the right direction?

Nice work on the inflection, I see now what Hal’s issue was with the previous version. Definitely the right direction.

It’s so close, I want it bad.

I’d also vote a note for Imperial March in ANH. At the most, I did like an example someone did where it was a subtle horn part when Vader boards the Tantive IV. (I can’t remember who did it) It wasn’t loud, just the horn part and was tied to Vader. It was done pretty well from what I recall … I think I downloaded that clip on my home computer … will need to check later.

Another thing worth mentioning about the whole “sensed the death of her son” thingy is that the film is built around it. Leia’s body doesn’t vanish until Ben’s does because that’s when she’s completed her “Jedi path”. Yes, it may be stupid, but it’s just the way they made the film.

The thing is the film isn’t built around it, it comes out of left field at the eleventh hour, there’s no build up before it and the “payoff” works fine without it. Implying Leia waited for Ben and maybe guided him across works on its own without any random fulfilled prophecy, same with Ben choosing to give his life force to Rey. If anything it robs agency from the characters to imply this is how it was all set to happen.

Prophecies and visions in Star Wars are never this hard set in stone, always in motion is the future, to imply Leia “sensed” how everything would happen some 20 years before is pretty ridiculous, not to mention nothing we see from Leia in VII VIII or IX implied she had such knowledge. Personally I hope “sensed the end of her Jedi path” can be polished to an acceptable degree, that seems to me like it would make the most sense.

Yes please.

Bold, intriguing idea. One milder spin on it could be that Obi-Wan sincerely thinks Anakin killed the younglings because he finds the bodies with lightsaber wounds (inflicted by Sidious himself), then finds the hologram of Sidious telling Anakin to “bring peace to the Empire” (maybe with the implication being the Jedi bugged the Chancellor’s office, further highlighting how morally-compromised the Order has become), and draws an understandable but erroneous conclusion with disastrous consequences.

That’s a possibility, though it may become too confusing. The cleanest idea would probably be to just cut Yoda’s line about the lightsaber wounds.

Rewatching the scene of Obi-wan confronting Padme, the camera really focuses on Obi-wan as he speaks about the Younglings. It’s interesting how he turns away from Padme and partially covers his mouth, presumably because the truth is too horrible to say outright but it also feels a lot like the character’s half-truth in ANH about Anakin’s death. That Obi-wan is even now willing to twist the truth to persuade leads right into the OT.

That’s a very intriguing idea, since it seems to fit his character in ANH. Almost like the beginning of him needing to spin the truth regarding anakin starting with Padme. Interesting.

And of course, he’s coming right from the temple massacre and knows Anakin has sided with Sidious. So even if Anakin didn’t pull out a lightsaber in the temple I imagine he’s still almost as much at fault in Obi-wan’s estimation.

I like it, it’s a fine idea.

Can anyone give advice on unpacking these files on Mac? They keep failing.

Adywan. Thanks for all your hard work on this project.

I used the Unarchiver and it worked like a charm when I downloaded the Empire Strikes Back from her work print. quicktime doesn’t seem to play it, but other video apps I use seem to and I was able to get it to play on Plex.
