    If you could change one line of dialogue from any Star Wars movie or spin off, with the intention that it enhance/augment/strengthen a scene or a part of lore. Or perhaps it would alter/subvert/invert its meaning,. Or just change people's perception of the saga as a whole. What would you change?

    And by change I mean, adding a few more words. Or adding an afterthought, an additional clause, or an observation etc to an existing line of dialogue. Not adding whole scenes, conversations or pages of dialogue.

    Or you might want to cut out certain parts of dialogue to have the same effect.

    What would your dialogue polish look like? It could be in order to strengthen a part of the saga that you find weak. Or you could do it just for comic effect. For fun.


    I bet if they did something like this, a lot more people would be onboard with the ST than there already is

    "So much strength. As my long dead Master Dyas once taught me. 'Darkness rises and light to meet it.' I warned my young apprentice that as he grew stronger, his equal in the light would rise."

    Senator Bail Organa : Captain Antilles.
    Captain Antilles : Yes, Your Highness?
    Senator Bail Organa : I'm placing these droids in your care. Treat them well. Clean them up. Do not have the Protocol Droid's mind wiped.
    C-3PO : What?
    [R2-D2 beeps in a way that sounds like manical laughing]
    C-3PO : But, sir, I want to forget. Curse my metal body, please let me forget the horror.

    QUI-GON : Obi-Wan...
    OBI-WAN : Yes, Master.
    QUI-GON : Make an analysis of this blood sample I'm sending you.
    OBI-WAN : Wait a minute...
    QUI-GON : I need a midi-chlorian count.
    OBI-WAN : All right. I've got it.
    QUI-GON : What are your readings?
    OBI-WAN : Something must be wrong with the transmission.
    QUI-GON : Here's a signal check.
    OBI-WAN : Strange. The transmission seems to be in good order, but it says zero. I thought everybody had at least a couple dozen in them. I mean this kid has literally NO connection to the Force whatsoever!
    QUI-GON : (almost to himself) Oh, okay then...

    Greedo: You can tell that to Jabba. He may only take your ship.
    Han: Over my dead body.
    Greedo: That's the idea. I've been looking forward to this for a long time.
    Han: Yes, I'll bet you have.

    and with that, the plot of Star Wars would be COMPLETELY altered.

    I was actually going to say the same thing, but unironically. I think the twist wouldn't entirely work if only one word was changed, but if the exchange was altered a bit, I could really see that being cool going forward. It switches up a lot of the dynamics between Vader, Obi-Wan, and Anakin in a lot of interesting (and possibly detrimental) ways. Is Vader transsexual? If so, what does that mean that only transsexual character to be a villain? (Or that's what I assume people will take out of it, rather than having the nature of the character's sex & gender separated from their affiliation...then again, some interesting things can be done between linking the idea of male power to the Dark Side, hmm....)
    Or was Obi-Wan lying about Vader being a man in the first place, in order to Other Vader so that Luke could complete his quest, not unlike how he split Vader and Anakin into two separate people in the OT proper.

    Luke's like about Leia remember their mother also hits harder as well, and maybe it could be used to propel Luke to believe in Vader. Imagine if Luke is conflicted about how to go about his confrontation with Vader. He has gone to Yoda and Obi-Wan, and they have stated that the facts don't cloud the truth of the actions necessary. But then he goes to who he now knows is his sister, and she remembers the good in their mother, her humanity. From that conversation, Luke is assured in his path, and what he believes is right.

    But everything else really stays the same. Luke still wants to be a Jedi like his father before him, and refuses to kill his mother to do so, the love of a parent for their child still shapes the galaxy, and Vader & Luke's relationship is tragically inverted in the ST. The PT would change a lot as a result. I'd probably have to cut out most of TPM and jump straight into the Clone Wars. In Movie 2, Vader would attack and kill Anakin and the Jedi going into hiding. Movie 3 would be the Jedi realizing that Vader has been disappearing on and off for years, and use one of those disappearances to strike at the Emperor. They fail, and in retaliation are nearly all killed, but Luke and Leia are rescued/separated from Vader as a result. Vader can't reveal this loss because in doing so would reveal that she had children, something she's worked VERY hard to hide from the Emperor. So no one really wins, but there's hope for reconciliation in the future by Luke and Leia.
    Now, I'm not entirely sure how to work all of the above into my PT rewrite, but I have a few ideas...although it'd probably come down to having the PT turned into a Tetralogy instead of a Trilogy.



    Or if I wanted a smaller change:
    "Rey. Rey Organa."

    Krayt Dragon yells are echoing by the canyons of Tattooine... Tuskens run away... and Artoo starts to blip-blop frantically, as a hooded figure approaches Luke, lying on the ground. The alien touches Luke.
    Artoo sends a "what's up there?" whistle, and then starts wriggling, whistling and blip-blopping. The hooded figure slowly stands up, and puts off the hood.
    - Nooooooooooooooo. You are R2 ? This is where the fun begins!
    Luke wakes up.
    - Ben ? Ben Kenobi ? Boy, I'm glad to see you!
    - Ben Kenobi ? This is a name I haven't heard in a long time. But it's not me. Ben is dead. My name is Anakin. Anakin Skywalker.

    I thought of another cherry for the cupcake.

    Wouldn't it have been great if, when Finn and Rey are reunited on Crait, Rey had said "Told you we'd see each other again." and then Finn replies "I know." (Because, of course, he doesn't know. Unless he's perhaps force sensitive.) And maybe include Finn looking at Rose to acknowledge that if she hadn't saved him, Rey would not have been able to keep that promise.
