    That was an acceptable script but at this point

    “Here’s what I think I know. J. J. wrote Episode VII, as well as drafts for VIII & IX," Ridley shared with Le Magazine GEEK (translated by Tumblr user daisyridleys). "Then Rian Johnson arrived and wrote The Last Jedi entirely. I believe there was some sort of general consensus on the main lines of the trilogy, but apart from that, every director writes and realizes his film in his own way. Rian Johnson and J. J. Abrams met to discuss all of this, although Episode VIII is still his very own work. I believe Rian didn’t keep anything from the first draft of Episode VIII.”
    Eh, doesn't really tell us much. How specific was his script, how much did Johnson deviate from it, etc. Daisy Ridley is also probably not very closely involved with this process.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m62H56LMB-U

    C-3PO murders a First Order droid to prevent it from calling in reinforcements when he couldn't get the attention of any human characters to stop it.

    R2-D2 gets blown up but then is repaired at the end, during his boot up sequence he projects moments from the OT from his perspective.

    Rey is slashed across the eyes by Kylo blinding her.

    Kylo leaves her and enters a temple on Mortis.

    Whatever it was exactly that they went to Mortis to find/fight over ended up not being there at all.

    Luke appears and has words with Kylo Ren.

    Rey comes back into the picture now and has bandaged her eyes with a strip of cloth, Luke vanishes.

    Rey channels both the Light and Dark side.

    Fight resumes, Rey gets the upper hand this time and Kylo's saber is destroyed, blowing up in his hand.

    Kylo drains the life force from Rey healing him, the metal bits that were fused to his face all out and the Sith corruption seem to be healed too.

    Rey begins pleading to Ben, Leia senses this too and reaches out to him.

    It seems like this is still a Bendemption ending, not an irredeemable Kylo Ren. He feels love for Rey and now accepts that it doesn't not make him weaker. He grabs Rey's hand and the life force flows back into her. At this point he tells her that her last name is Solana and dies.

    At this point Rey ascends to an astral plane and meets with Luke, Obi-Wan and Yoda. They applaud her for teaching them something new. They affirm that Rey is correct to utilize both the Dark and the Light and to find the balance within herself. She is given the choice to stay one with the force or to return to the galaxy.

    Hux is now a wannabe force user and has been trying and failing to use the force throughout the last battle. He has a lightsaber collection and when it becomes apparent that the First Order is going to lose he commits seppuku with a purple bladed saber.

    Last scene is Rey beginning to teach a new generation of Jedi on a planet named Modesta.
    Okay, well if that leak is accurate then they were right to toss that script.

    Not that what we got was any good but... no to that also.

    Hmm, I don't like ranking films like this, but let me try:

    Great: [Star Wars/ESB]
    ...
    More good than bad: [Rogue One/Solo/FA/RoTJ*]
    ...
    More bad than good: [TLJ/RoS]
    ...
    ...
    ...
    Ick: [Prequels]

    My rankings are always subject to change. I really need to watch a movie three times before I can really put a ranking on it. Also, sequels can make a earlier movie worse or better imo

    This tends to be true. It could be because we expectations are so high if we liked the first one.

    That's actually nice, even though the Luke-blocking-lightsaber and Hux committing sudoku might be a bit too much.

    I agree. It looks like it would suffer from similar problems to RoS that we had.

    The more I learn about the happier I am we didn't end up with it.
    The worst part about the internet is that it let the truly crazy, racist, and bigots find each other easily.

    How can they change "Rey arrives to train a new generation of Jedi [Final Shot]" (unique house on a field of grass) to lets ripp of ep4 twin sun, and bury the lightsabers.

    It still bothering me about the lightsabers, shall they not be passed on to the next generation of jedi, or if they are a oblation/offering to the dead, shall they not be buried at the place ther owner did die/assended, or place in a shrine/hall of honor in a new jedi academy.

    The main problem with I have with TROS is that it barely addressed this significance of Anakin as part of the Skywalkers. I would've been a fine send off of the Skywalkers if it acknowledge Anakin more, even if Kylo/Ben just recognizing Anakin over Vader. Abrams isnt so good at ending stories. They should have just went with someone who would've played of Rian's direction than giving it back to Abrams.

    I’ve heard the writers get paid based on what % of the script is theirs, so when Abrams and Terrio took over they were financially incentivized to change as much as they could even if the scenes were superior before they touched them.

    There are hints, but yeah, they could have done more.

    No idea whether that was already discussed but

    "What could you give me?" Kylo asked. Emperor Palpatine lived, after a fashion, and Kylo could feel in his very bones that this clone body sheltered the Emperor's actual spirit. It was an imperfect vessel, though, unable to contain his immense power. It couldn't last much longer."
    That 2-line passage sure couldn't have been implemented as a 5-minute sequence in any of the two last movies

    It was implemented. We literally saw Kylo doing that. We just didn't hear his thoughts, which was ok.
    All right, gentlemen, let's review. The year is 2020 - that's two-zero-two-zero, as in the 21st Century's perfect vision - and I am sorry to say the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of robed sissies.
