I have been away for a bit … but one of the other things I would look into is the removal of the Dagger’s … pop out. I rolled my eyes HARD when that happened. It didn’t make any sense. Not only was the dagger made … it had an inscription of the location of the way finder (who the person made it know where it was located … so why “write” it down. Example: I know where my parent’s house is, but I don’t inscribe the address on the key copy I made) but HE CHOSE A SPECIFIC LOCATION OVERLOOKING THE DEATH STAR II’s LOCATION TO “POINT” TO THE LOCATION OF THE WAYFINDER!
That was too much.
As much as I would LOVE to remove the dagger … that probably isn’t possible. Instead, I think it would help to remove that “pop out” dagger scene when the crew is looking at the wreckage when Rey finds that detail to “line up” the design.
Instead, when she is looking out … couldn’t we simply add the Sith Whisper sounds when Rey is looking out? That way we recognize she is being guided by the dark side? We the audience know she is still “flirting” with the dark side, especially after the Last Jedi. She is kind of mirroring Luke’s footsteps in ROTJ where he wants to be full on Jedi, but he still has that temptation. Rey is a bit similar, albeit some differences … but she is looking for a Sith thingy, so she should be “guided” by that side.
Since we the audience, who have seen/watch Star Wars Movies would recognize those whispers and understand “Hey! that area is it!” without being told it.
Anyway, that’s my two cents.
I like that. Perhaps just show her pulling the dagger out of the bag, add the Sith whispers to the shots of her looking at it, but cut away before she pulls out the “line it up just right” thing.
