Part 3 is finally here! I have received too many death threats to ignore the cries of others. I apologize for the long wait for Part 3, but recently I’ve been really down with my Chronic Tennis Elbow. Everyone is sitting here talking about this COVID stuff and how deadly it is while I have been dealing with Chronic Tennis Elbow for over 20 years. Is it discrimination if others are getting more attention than me? I’ll make a note of that. Because seriously no one ever asks if I’m ok or if I’ve had a crazy year due to my Tennis Elbow. They just assume my year has been crazy due to a pandemic, but I digress. Star Wars is the topic we are all here for, not the occasional yet consistent inflammation I have to deal with. Also, I reached out to the Austrian woman from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. She didn’t respond, but I just wanted everyone to know that if I talk about something, I’m going to back it up. Guess what? I talked a lot about finishing this Star Wars series and that is why after all this time, I’m bringing it.
In the last article, I expressed what my vision for the end of this trilogy would be. I wanted the series to finally show a redemptive story of the Jedi Order. The prequels were basically three movies expressing the flaw of the Jedi at one of their highest points in power. So much time was put into showing this and I feel like the same amount of time needs to be focused on the Jedi fixing those mistakes and reaching a point where they can say the order is truly what it needs to be. I love the original trilogy and I love Luke Skywalker, but I don’t feel that the original trilogy or the sequel trilogy ever concluded that the Jedi Order was in a better place.
All we ever saw was a handful of characters learning how to wield the force and become Jedi, but I can’t get behind the idea that these handful of spotlighted characters really show us that the Jedi have reclaimed their right to be considered “good” people, or that all of the problems we saw in the prequel trilogy were fixed. I desperately need to see these people that I used to view as heroes become just that to everyone they come in contact with. It is important to remember that every person views right and wrong differently sometimes. I want to play on that idea with just the Jedi.
Sadly in this scenario I’ve made, we will be building off the sequel trilogy and only tweaking it a little because that would be the easiest way to incorporate that story. Hopefully people would actually like Rey after my edition of the story because right now she straight up sucks. The heart of our story will revolve around Ben Solo and Rey Palpatine (I will never say Skywalker). The only change we will make to the sequel trilogy is that… Ben Solo will live. Another change is that Rey and Ben won’t kiss. That part was freaking stupid and I hate it. Our story begins right after the end of Rise of Skywalker.
After the battle against Palpatine we are left with two force wielders, Ben and Rey. Now that the Sith are gone and the battle is finally over, it is time to pick up the pieces and rebuild. In the Return of the Jedi film, Luke was the only Jedi we saw at the end of the Empire. Throughout that time he traveled by himself trying to rebuild the Jedi Order, which was eventually torn down by Snoke. In that we saw just one guy try to maintain the order, but with this story, now we have two people with very different experiences with the force and Jedi. Our story revolves around Ben and Rey trying to rebuild the order in different ways. At first there aren't many problems because Ben and Rey are only trying to find force sensitive beings to train and gain numbers. During this time, Rey and Ben hone their skills becoming equivalent to a Jedi Master in terms of knowledge in the force and their power. Finn can even be trained by Rey and slowly evolve with them acting as Rey’s first student. Over time, force wielders are gathered from all ages and are slowly trained by both Ben and Rey. Then, slowly but steadily, our problem arises. It seems that our two heroes each see the Jedi differently, and have separate goals for them. It isn’t a problem at first but eventually it will become one of the biggest conflicts in Jedi History……….
Stay tuned for Part 4.
