Vader's trip to the Executor

Why: Although the new scenes show more of what happens, I think they show a bit too much at the wrong time. Like while the Falcon is being chased and attacked by tie fighters, we see Vader slowly coming out of his shuttle, which is a big change in tempo that is just too near to the climax of the movie, plus it provides almost no new information to the viewer. It’s like a scene from a beginning of a movie, not the end. Not to mention that there is a crazed Imperial officer running in the background of that scene.

Also, the line Vader uses on Bespin is not as powerful or as commanding as the original line. This is one of the most requested changes actually. There is no need to alert them to prepare for his arrival, he should be free to come and go as he pleases.

How: Replace the line “Alert my star destroyer…to prepare for my arrival,” with the original super-line, “Bring my shuttle,” and remove the outdoor shot of Vader and co.

Remove the scene of the shuttle docking with in the Executor, but keep the shot of the shuttle leaving Bespin’s orbit and coming up on the Executor. However, I don’t think it should be kept where it is; it’s too much in the middle of the action. I think the best place to put it would be as soon as the top hatch closes after Luke gets back on the Falcon.
