Regarding the script screenshots that just leaked:
I like Leia’s role better, but obviously the change in her role from this draft to the final cut was dictated by tragic circumstances that nobody is to blame for.
Regarding all of the other characters:
I prefer the roles of Rey, Poe, Kylo, Hux, Force ghosts, and Sith in the film we actually got, whereas I prefer the roles of most of the other characters like Finn, Chewy, the droids, etc., in this draft.
I also prefer the aesthetics from the concept art of this draft, when compared to the look of the film we actually got.
Regarding the time jump: 9 or 10 years (as it is in this draft) is too much. For this version in particular, a jump of 2-5 years would’ve been a nice sweet spot, me thinks.
So, ultimately, more of a hybrid between the two visions would’ve been the ideal.
