WATCH: Cracking edit inserts famous Jedi into final scene of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and it’s SO much better

July 9th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Man… Disney really screwed Star Wars up, didn’t they?

I mean, even of you do like the new movies (we don’t judge), it can’t be argued that there was a lot of heart missing and the story was a mess from the second Rian Johnson decided to go off the script, literally.

But for me, the biggest problem with the final movie, The Rise of Skywalker, was that as pretty as it looked, it was a big, empty, heartless shell.

Now Youtuber Jon H has taken the final confrontation between Rey and Palpatine from the last movie and has given it something that was  utterly absent… heart.

In the scene, Palpatine tells Rey he is all the Sith and Rey replies that she is all the Jedi while in the background we hear the voices of several Jedi from across the whole franchise and at one stage we had been led to believe that several stars – Hayden Christensen, Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson and others – had returned to film cameos as Force Ghosts.

But alas, it was not to be. Until now as Anakin, Luke, Yoda, and Obi-Wan appear to help our hero.

Check the video out below and tell us that that hasn’t infinitely improved on the original.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
