He says the training scene is entirely cut as is the flashback to her parents being murdered.Cheebo Since you listened to the podcast, please clarify the following:
is Luke and Leia training flashback cut from the movie or the movie just doesn't open with it but it's still in the movie?
Is the scene flashback of Rey parents murder cut? reddit bullet points don't make it clear.
So opening is now Sith Fleet rising from Exogol (sp?)
Did he explain why he brings this news to Patreon rather than video or site (where he supposedly releases more verified stuff)? Are the changes just rumored but not verified?
What else did he say that is important? Does he sound like he's backtracking?
Did he explain whether FG help Rey fight Palaptine or just revive Rey after Palp siphons the Force from her, as Jason claimed originally?
I just hope Rey is front and center in this movie. That’s the main thing I want out of this final chapter.He says the training scene is entirely cut as is the flashback to her parents being murdered.
He didn’t say why he brought it to patreon first but he occasionally does this for Patreon first once in a while.
He sounded frustrated about having to backtrack but said it’s hard because Abrams changed so much throughout production and then changed even more throughout various reshoots so it has become extremely hard to lock down what happens as Abrams has changed a ton as production went on.
He didn’t give any details on what the force ghosts do, it’s just that Abrams at some point decided to change it from Luke and Leia as it didn’t feel epic enough and changed it to bigger with “Jedi of the past”.
oh and he thinks Wedge is in the movie but can’t confirm it because his best sources aren’t big Star Wars fans so they wouldn’t even know who Wedge.
that he believes Wedge is likely part of Landos reinforcements in the third act.
The opening I could see because ILM could be told “JJ says scrap it, the effects are too uncanny valley so he is changing the opening”.
The leaks did make the movie seem very side questy
Man you really got a lot of opinions about a movie you haven’t seenCheebo Big thanks!
Ochii side-quest really felt like side-quest and I hope they get rid of Falcon side-quest as well. I really hate that detour.
Also, I hope he drops the dreadful ending with people who don't have fuck to do with Tatooine on Tatooine taking a slefie with twin suns. ROTS ending worked because everyone associated with Tats (Luke, Owen, Beru and OB1) were there. Rey, Finn, Poe, Jannah, BB8 and D0 have nothing to do with Tats and therefore ending feels awful. A lot of people complained about it. There's no resonance.
No, I got a lot of opinions about leaks. But since they are the closest we have to the movie...
They are extremely vague. They don't go into any detail about how the fights go down and virtually no info about the non-Force plot.
At the rate things have been changing, I have half a mind to expect Han to be the one to help Rey against Palpatine in the final cut.I kinda like how the narrative is constantly changing on these spoilers. Not because I feel strongly one way or another about any particular aspect of them (well, maybe one aspect....), but because it's keeping the speculation fresh and exciting.
I hope we get conflicting reports right up till the movie's release. =D
Kylo or Snoke.
