Wow, I liked this much more than I expecte I would. It actually builds on both Force Awakens and Last Jedi, and brings something of its own.
It's more straightforward than the movie we got instead, Rise of Skywalker, but that's not neccessarily a problem.

First of all, is "Duel of the Fates" better than JJ's TROS? Yeah, probably.
Tremorrow's script has a lot more cool moments that take advantage of every character's backstory and personality. And the narrative as whole is far more compelling than JJ's "Oh, we ve got to look for McGuffin 1, and that will lead us to McGuffin 2, and that will lead us to McGuffin 3..." nonsense.
An also, there is no Palpatine to be seen in here, thank God (he appears in an old holographic message, but that could've bee

There are so many aspects of this story that I really enoyed (especially the way it built on the issues with the stormtroopers and that Rey's grandpa wasn't you know who), but I still have to say I preferred the one we got instead. I could write 500 essays on the character realtionships and themes in TROS that I feel I couldn't really do with the DOTF story.

Honestly, both of the scripts/stories disappointed me in some way.

I wish we could have gotten a movie where they took the best aspects of b

dramatically better than the movie we received.

not without its flaws, but no work is without issue.

this is what i choose to commit to memory as the canon version of episode IX.

even if you're the kind of person who looks at this and thinks "why would i want to read a script? moreover, why would i want to read a script for a movie that didn't and will never get made?", i appeal to you to read it.

if you watched the real last star wars movie and were struck by the realization that it sucked, i humb

I didn't hate The Rise of Skywalker but it disappointed me in many ways that this wouldn't have. While not perfect, I would have loved to have seen this get made and expect that many of the issues with the script would have been ironed out during production. This script is definitely a good starting place and would have provided a more satisfying end to both the sequel trilogy and the saga as a whole.

Who remembers those halcyon days of 2015? When Christmas was consumed, not with Brexit's fallout, El Presidente's election, looming war that only a global pandemic managed to defer and the godawful end to the Star Wars series, but with its overhyped new beginnings? Strange to think that the 'Force Awakens' days were the good ones, when all we worried about was viciously shouting people down for "spoiling" a movie that contained nothing worth spoiling, and the concentrated harrassment campaigns w ...more
