Fan-Edited “Rise of Skywalker” Ending Is the Thing of Dreams
A Star Wars fan has recently created an alternate ending to The Rise of Skywalker that adds more depth to the final battle, which many fans felt was anticlimactic. YouTube user jon h posted his fan edit that showed the Jedi Force Ghosts assisting Rey in the final battle.
The fan edit inserted the force ghosts of Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, and Obi Wan Kenobi, all using the Force to give Rey the extra strength she needed to defeat the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Sidious.
Of course, this is a fan edit and did not include all the Jedi that spoke in the scene from the film. After seeing this and experiencing the tonal shift these small inclusions made, one cannot help but be hopeful. Maybe one day they will release a cut of the movie with something like this in it, if the Force wills it. In the age of re-releases and extended/director’s cuts, anything is possible.
Check out the amazing edit below!
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker along with the entire Skywalker Saga is available on Blu-Ray and streaming in 4K on Disney+.
