I wish that angle was never put to film, but I’m not sure I want to go that route. We’ll see but I expect that won’t change.

I understand. I too am also someone who prefers sticking true to route. It’s even more difficult to do that with the Sequels now that they’re following the Original Trilogy. It was much easier for the Prequels because they preceded the Original Trilogy and were made afterwards. So it’s much easier for us to make changes to strengthen the continuity with the original three films.

Continuity can be fixed with the Sequels, but something tells me that J.J. Abrams changed Rey’s origin for this film, knowing how much backlash was given from her being a nobody in The Last Jedi, so he changed his original plan to satisfy the fans. I also don’t believe his word that Palpatine was always planned from the start of the trilogy, but that’s a discussion for another thread.

Just a suggestion, but do you think you’ll remove the reveal of Rey being Palpatine’s granddaughter at this point? I know that there are moments in the film that play towards this narrative, but they (like Palpatine offering her the rank as Empress) can still be kept in with an altering viewpoint and motivation.

He could offer her the throne knowing how powerful in the Force she is and ordered for her and her parents to be killed knowing her raw power that could potentially be a threat to him.

Her being his granddaughter does raise so many unanswered questions, especially who and when did Palpatine married to have a son. I’ve always liked the aspect of Rey being a nobody and rising (no pun intended) to become somebody worth of recognition. Even the ending of her doning the name Skywalker would make things even stronger without her being related to the Emperor.

I don’t know if I should mention this or not, but have you seen the list of scenes cut that we may get come the Blu-ray release. This post should be taken with a HUGE grain of salt, though.

I wasn’t too sure about the legitimacy of this post. That’s why I said to take it with a huge grain of salt.

  • Attempt to reinstate Han’s no-look shot with an added “huh” afterward.

If you’re planning on doing that, you can use a voice clip from the Lego game of The Force Awakens, as Harrison Ford actually voiced Han in the game. Here’s the link to the sound bytes ripped from the game.

Have you ever thought about trimming up the sequence where Ben and Rey reunite after defeating Palpatine to remove the implication that Rey died. To me, there are many things in this movie where we explore what the Force can do, but resurrecting someone from the dead is kind of pushing it a little too far. It also wouldn’t be the power to cheat death as Palpatine told Anakin, since the person would have to be alive for them to be protected from dying.

Are you interested in branching in different story directions for the characters, or would rather keep as to what happens in the story. An example would be Ben’s death, and having him live in your edit (even though it would be almost impossible unless an alternate ending was shot and released to the public). I know you had Padmé survive your edit of Episode III, but that did make sense to tie more fittingly with Leia’s description of her in Return of the Jedi. Plus, those were prequels to the Original Trilogy, and these are sequels.

Rey &amp; Kylo Ren's Relationship - <strong>TROS SPOILERS</strong> from Page 3 onwards

Yes, I tend to think that “Rey shouldn’t love abusive man” is a sort of one dimensional way of viewing their relationship.

What other way is it? She fell for him because he has a nice body (TLJ scene) and because JJ Abrahams wanyed to redeem another villain so badly. Kylo is a man child, he is a murderer and the only interaction he has with Rey is during fights… Its so messed up.

I think it’s quite obvious that they came together based on their lives and growing up lonely wanting a family.

Well, it is now.

I found the kiss at the end to be a satisfying end for them. Had Ben been friend-zoned, it would have felt very off-putting. So I’d say their relationship worked well, even if they lazily killed Ben afterward (seems to have been a last-minute change).

True. Thanks for marking this as a spoiler thread. I didn’t know how to do that on here.

I assume it was the mods?

Probably so.

I can’t remember, but does it cut from him tossing his saber to Rey tossing kindling onto the TIE?

I won’t be sure until sometime later, but I think that scene is pretty well tethered to the loss of Leia.

My memory is also kinda hazy too, but we can discuss more about moving that scene once the film is out on video so we can watch the movie as many times as we want.

I have both a suggestion to make and a point about the deleted scenes come the Blu-ray release.

My suggestion is similar to your change of moving the Luke and Yoda scene to a different place in your edit of The Last Jedi. How about moving the scene between Ben and Han to a different place as well? Maybe after Rey leaves Ahch-To in Luke’s X-Wing? Just like how Luke was offscreen for a long period of time, the same could be said about Ben here.

I think it might strain believability that he’d just stay standing on that precarious piece of the Death Star for so long.

True, but then again, why was Luke standing at the edge of a cliff in The Force Awakens for a while before Rey found him?

About the deleted scenes, I am hoping that we get a lot of really good juicy scenes come the film’s home video release. I heard that J.J. Abrams wasn’t that much of a deleted scenes guy when it comes to releasing them to the public. That would explain why we got a handful of short deleted scenes for The Force Awakens. Hopefully we’ll get something exciting.

Just a question, when you made your edits of the Prequel Trilogy, you described yourself as more of a curator, considering that you were borrowing ideas from other editors for your edits, as well as some of your own. For the Sequel Trilogy, you’ve been coming up with ideas as well as taking ideas from fans. Is there anything from other Sequel Trilogy edits that have made you want to use them as well. I know your inspired a bit by poppasketti’s edit of The Last Jedi.
