    LioZ’s edit throws a curveball at fans from the very beginning. In the theatrical release of ‘The Rise of Skywalker,’ Rey confronts the resurrected Emperor Palpatine in a brutal duel. However, the edit throws a surprise twist. As Rey stands defiant against Palpatine, a spectral form materializes – Anakin Skywalker, lightsaber ignited and ready for battle.

    The duel between Anakin and Palpatine is a sight to behold. The edit masterfully blends footage from the prequels and Episode IX to create a visually stunning fight sequence.  More importantly, this battle carries immense emotional weight. 

    It allows Anakin, the prophesied “Chosen One,” to finally confront the Sith Lord who manipulated him throughout his life. Additionally, witnessing Anakin, redeemed as a Force ghost, take on Palpatine provides a sense of closure for fans who felt his redemption arc remained incomplete.

    LioZ’s edit transcends the thrill of a lightsaber duel. By having Anakin face Palpatine, it delves deeper into the themes of legacy and forgiveness that permeate the Star Wars saga.

    This rewrites the dynamic between Rey and Palpatine, shifting the focus to the Skywalker bloodline’s ultimate confrontation with the darkness. LioZ’s ‘ANAkin vs. Palpatine’s edit is a testament to the power of fan edits and the dedication of the Star Wars fanbase.
