    How do you think The Rise of Skywalker will open?

    Personally, I think it should open with bad guys, probably Kylo Ren's shuttle entering the Unknown Region, where we see Star Destroyers fleet and the ice plant he ignite his lightsaber in the trailer. There, he might meet Palpatine and the bigger threat that become the film's mcguffin.

    I have read some leaks but I don't buy none of them. I believe J.J. is better than that.

    Most Star Wars movies start with the bad guys and I think TROS should start with the KOR (and Kylo) attacking something.

    But yeah, I also read the latest leak by MSW about the opening and I don't like it. Mainly because it doesn't fit the structure of Star Wars movies and furthermore I'm worried about the CGI which has to be used to make this scene work.

    I love this idea for the opening scene, pretty ingenious actually..
    I just hope Luke and Leia look photorealistic and their voices are identical.

    This film may end up working as a direct sequel to Return of the Jedi.

    I'm envisioning a severed hand, holding a lightsaber, floating through space... :p

    If the rumor is true about the opening of TROS with
    Leia and Luke
    , I would not be mad at that. Right now any rumors that float around, I don't take it as gospel. Most of of the rumors sound like speculations. It's fun. For this movie, once the press screenings and the premier. I will avoid any Star Wars news on the internet until I actually see the actual film.

    I think the CGI bothers me more. Actor recreating (like in R1) or actor deaging (like in It 2) always take me out of the movie because it doesn't really look that convincing.

    Regarding the structure- I think there is a good way of transition from the crawl to the opening.

    the last words of the crawl should be something like: "Rey's training of becoming a Jedi is almost over, but there is one test left...."
    We see the flashback of Luke and Leia fighting. Luke and Leia talk. Then we hear the off screen voice of Rey: "Master Leia!", young Leia turns. Cut to old Leia turning to Rey at the same location. Now we are in the present.

    I have found that in some cases that the deaging is better in some movies than others. The character recreation can be a little wonky

    Space scene of the DS being blown up, Palpatine Falling into the shaft, part of the DS crashing into the ground on that planet and seeing Force Lightening encompassing the DS Ruin as it settles into the ground. Then we flash to the present seeing Rey and crew standing, looking at the ruin as seen in the teaser.
    Palpatine will have attached his Force essence to the Kyber Crystals in the Death Star Weapon. They have turned Red due to Palpatine corrupting them and are being used on the Sith Star destroyers that fire that red beam.

    Poe, Rey etc... are there to destroy the source of the Red Kyber Crystals but are surprised to find Palpatine existing in the ruins.

    Only Force user that could defeat Vader is Luke, Leia and Ahsoka Tano. Anakin’s other love. Only the training she had with him and the total mind mess and love for her inside Vader about his apprentice would allow him to be weak enough for defeat.

    Vader’s one weakness was love.

    And Vader would also have some love for his grandson, right? So Kylo is definitely able to defeat Vader after that logic. :p

    I love how this (supposed) plot ties in -- both through the general DS construction thing & the Kyber Crystal focus -- with Rogue One. It's almost as if LFL/Story Group had planned this all out from the start ;-) Respect.
