Soo, here’s my very early stage concept of Lord Ren’s Seat of Power on Coruscant.
This plays in to my proposed restructuring of the first act of the film.
- Open on Luke and Leia flashback.
- Rey trains
- Falcon arrives
- Palpatines Broadcast. Using reaction shot montage from crew( ala IlFanEditore) and from people around the galaxy ending on Kylo’s face on coruscant.
- Rey has a moment with Leia- end on closup of wayfinder on the page of Jedi Text.
- Kylo and Vader’s helmet - “go to the mustafar system”-“find me”
- Rey and crew depart to search for wayfinder
- Mustafar - Kylo finds wayfinder - Exogol and Palpatines reveal.
- Vader’s Castle - Kylo fixes helmet- goes to Board room meeting
- Film continues as per.(for now)
Wow, sounds great in general.
I Just dont understand why opening a movie with the flashback?
Another idea, did you think maybe about adding this cool well done fan film with Kylo fightimg Vaders spectre? I think it would fit to your vision. Maybe u could insert it at the beggining of the movie. Then at the end of the seqience you add “find me on mustafar”, or add audio from Rots when Palp says “you Will go to mustafar system” 😉 and then, few scenes later you d show Kylo Ren on Mustafar.
During the broadcast sequence, you could maybe add some random shots of ppl from around the Galaxy from other SW properties, like the Mandalorian (you have So many different setting there, like a cantina, Village, prison), ewoks (from TV movies for eg) of even fan films. Like people looking in the sky or listening to the radio 😉
What do you think?
