    I'd request an official change of name.
    It's way too similar to Smee from Peter Pan.

    I think it'd be a neat little easter egg addition. But wouldn't her tombstone likely read "Shmi Lars"?

    Theoretically, yes...and I cannot believe this old thread got resurrected, but now that it's alive....

    I think that we should see Rey visit the old homestead (of her father :) ) and see her great-grandmothers grave [sprints out of room before rocks are thrown].

    But seriously! :)

    I see you're holding out hope for Luke to be revealed as Rey's father, huh?
    Either way, It'd be cool to see the Homestead once before the Sequels end

    I'm not too interested in any more edited changes in the Special Editions. I prefer my SW untouched.

    It could be a nice change to add in another Special Edition.

    I think we've seen enough unnecessary edits to the original series.

    Perhaps her grave market might factor in to the "mind melting" ending we're told to expect in IX.

    Luke had plenty of time to investigate his families past. He should know a lot about Pademe and Anakin. No way empire could expunge all records of that time nor really any reason for them to do so.

    I like the idea of adding the tombstones. BUT...... I have a counter offer: For every good thing they add, like this tombstone idea, they have to correct a bad one, like Greedo shooting or Jabba or whatever.

    My dream scenario is that once all 9 saga films are out (i.e. next year!) LFL/Disney would make a super-boxed set including the "current" version of the films (if there can even be said to exist a "current" version, lol), a theatrical version of each film (for reference and purist satisfaction), and at least one "final edition" version of all films, with possible reinserted deleted scenes, possible new/tweaked scenes to answer inconsistencies and whatnot, and to just give a more concerted effort/overall completist take on the Skywalker Saga for us crazy fans who cannot get enough. In such "final edition" versions of the films, I would love to see Shmi's gravestone inserted into ANH scenes, and much more beside. And yes, I know, greatly extending SW films doesn't make them better from the perspective of pacing, or even plain storytelling, but I (and I imagine most fans?) would love to have just MORE of the SW movies we love. +20-30 minutes to each film, please :p

    In short, I don't mind special editions at all. Actually I favor them, as long as the execution is good (i.e. someone need to go back and redo the OT special edition CGI).
