SPECULATION Could this supposed 'mind blowing' ending be a make or break for fans?

    First thing that I thought when I saw the teaser of TROS:

    That's Leia with the Han's medal giving it to Chewie as a souvenir and to say Thank you for everything.

    Daisy said that JJ added a different ending. Is Smith talking about the old or the new ending?

    Maybe more appropriately as a momento. If that's the case... won't confirm or deny man tears.

    I never heard this interview from Daisy as it has me intrigued yet worried. What would force JJ to change the ending after it was already shot?

    IMO there is at least one possible ending that could ruin the whole thing for me, and that is if they just copy the ending of ROTJ. Rey looks off into the distance and sees the ghosts of Ben, Luke, and maybe Anakin, Yoda, or Obi-Wan.

    Don’t get me wrong - I LOVE the ending of ROTJ, but that’s all the more reason that I do not want to see a second-rate imitation of it.

    The ending was changed after it shot. The ending changed from what was written in script when they were shooting

    Hmmmm....Interesting. I know Lucas totally redid Anakin’s turn scene in ROTS. Originally he turned when he found out Palpatine was the Sith and was by his side when Mace and Co confront him. Lucas nixed it cause he felt there was no emotional weight to his turn so he played more on Padme’s death when he reshot the new turn scene, and added Anakin telling Mace scene and Anakin looking out at Padme scene when Mace and Co confront Palpatine.

    Fans couldn't handle Luke being grumpy.
    Fans couldn't handle a lightsaber being tossed.

    Yeah, anything deemed mind-blowing and actually is as such, will break A LOT of fans.

    I wonder how extensive the change was. It could have been something minor or it could have been totally redone.

    Things change during production all the time. Just look at the OT from original script to final film.

    I think a great deal of the fandom is already leaning one way or another. For some it will take something exceedingly well done to impress them at this point. For others, an idea horribly delivered and not at all thought out. That said, sadly, I think it's easier to screw up then to succeed in these movies, especially if you're pushing the bar on some ideas and the division in the fan base.

    I hope JJ sticks the landing. I hope I can look on the ST with new appreciation, or at least enjoy this episode. I'm looking on like a passenger in a car being ushered through a car wreck, hoping to see a mother walk away without a scratch and clutching her child and all is good, but I fear the damage is so great that I'll see a dead and mangled body and all hope for a happy outcome is lost, it's just a tragedy.

    I do believe that the ending for Episode IX will be a make-or-break moment for fans. I also believe Abrams, Kennedy, and Disney are well aware of this, and are likely doing everything possible to ensure the ending is fully satisfying to a wide range of fans, and I’m hopeful they will deliver.

    I don’t know what to make of Kevin Smith’s statement, but it takes a lot to melt my mind. Perhaps it’s a view inside Artoo’s memory, or a scene of him recounting the saga to someone. Two things that would actually melt my mind, and would disappoint me as a fan would be one of the following:

    -a connection to our galaxy, like some relic from the galaxy far far away traveling to earth to seed life here, or
    -time travel

    As long as they stay away from either of those outcomes, I’ll probably be satisfied with my mind intact.

    I don’t disagree with your post, but I think Disney is playing with Fire if they are solely relying on a ‘mind blowing’ ending to please all the fans.

    By narrowing it so far to one part of the movie, it almost invites some fans to be pleased and others to be disappointed. I think they are doing this because they didn’t focus TFA and TLJ enough into tying up the 9 part Saga, so they are essentially using TROS ending as that tent pole.

    The better way would have been to make a narrative throughout the ST that ties into the PT/OT, that way fans look at the movies as a whole, and not just TROS ending as the make or break.

    I have many problems with the PT, but the one thing I don’t dispute is that it ties nicely with the OT and forms one narrative story. The rise of Palpatine, Anakin’s arc, the arrogance of the Jedi, and the failure of the Republic all lead to what we see at the beginning of ANH. My problems with the PT are more about Jar Jar, the cheesy Anakin/Padme love story and too much CGI.
