Star Wars: Last Jedi, New Empire

It’s here, my latest Last Jedi edit. I don’t intend it to be the last, as I’m currently contemplating a 3-in-1 trilogy…I just need to outline it a bit.

For now though, please enjoy this. I have added much of Kylo’s early interactions with Palaptine from Rise of Skywalker to this film, one of the major changes includes having Kylo travel to Mustafar after Snoke berates him for being nothing but a ‘child in a mask’, he goes there and cuts people down just for the sport of it. Palapatine then contacts him via the force and compels him to retrieve a way finder, we then cut back to Rey and Luke on his island and carry on from there.

Palpatine shows up again, this time in the flesh rather than a voice-over, shortly after Ren kills Snoke. Kylo traveal to Exogal where there is some use of the Fortnite speech from Palapatine and some alterations to the encounter between Ren and the Emperor.

The last major change is Kylo reveals to Rey, via their psychic rapport, that she is the granddaughter of the Emperor. I figure it’d make more sense to give her an “Empire” moment in the second act of the trilogy just as Luke’s parentage was a key factor in the second act of the original trilogy.

There are other areas cut, such as Kylo smashing his helmet and Poe’s crank call to Hun, but not much else is removed from Last Jedi as this is more about adding than subtracting. I hope to cut more from Last Jedi for my 3-in-1 edit.
