Some very clever Star Wars has managed to take the Rey vs. Palpatine battle at the end of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker and given it extra force ghosts.
There were a lot of Star Wars fans who weren’t all that pleased with J.J. Abrams’ final film in the recent trilogy.
That said, there have been very vocal Star Wars fans who’ve been against almost every Star Wars film made since Disney took over Lucasfilm.
Personally, I thought the film was fun, yet flawed.
However, every Star Wars film has flaws, and I think many Star Wars fans forget that fact.
The main issue with The Rise Of Skywalker, and this scene in particular, was that it was trying to be too ‘fan-servicey’ and ended up trying to fit too much in it.
That said, this new fan edit adds a little something extra to the final battle between Rey and Palpatine and it actually makes a lot more sense for the Star Wars franchise as a whole.
Rey vs. Palpatine’s battle at the end of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker now has Force ghosts
This new edit from jon h on YouTube adds the Force ghosts of Luke, Yoda, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi all using the Force to help Rey to defeat Palpatine once and for all.
What I found, and I believe many others, is that this edit ends up giving a more well-rounded ending to the Star Wars franchise as a whole.
In particular, this gives the Skywalker story arc a nice and fitting conclusion.
In the original edit of the movie, Rey defeats Palpatine basically on her own, and it just makes more sense that she would have a helping hand from her fellow Jedi.
I think if they had gone with this in the cinema release of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, people would have left feeling more satisfied than they did.
What do you make of this news?
Do you think this new fan edit of this Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker scene is better than the original?
