Rise of Skywalker concept art, suggesting a better film than we got (a low bar admittedly)

Hello,
I was very excited to learn about "Star Wars: Deleted Magic Revisited" though I am unable to find it online. I was wondering if it is available to watch somewhere on the web. I am sure you are busy but if you have the time to respond and enlighten me on the subject it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,
CHOTime!

Rise of Skywalker: Like The Phantom Menace, this one gets worse the more I think about it.

Rise of the Skywalker doesn't have much sense of scale and proportion. The threat presented is way over the top. It was probably intended to be all ghosts and phantoms at some point, but it's all real here, and universe-breaking because of it, as well as hard to take seriously.

The Last Jedi seemed to be setting up arcs for the characters which TROS wastes a lot of time undoing. Abrams is practically having a temper tantrum showing us what his episode 8 "would have been," doing nothing with Finn, Rose, Hux, etc., and doing way too much in one movie.

The short film Return of the Ewok is officially only known to survive on a VHS tape owned by Warwick Davis himself. However, Lucasfilm is pretty famous for having properly archived all the film footage from the Star Wars films, and outtakes from Return of the Ewok appeared on the first Star Wars DVD release. In this clip about Warwick Davis' cameo in Rise of Skywalker, there are clips from Return of the Ewok at the beginning and end, from 16mm film. I don't know if the entire film still survives in that format but I would guess that the footage probably does.

Remember how in the final film of his trilogy, Finn (John Boyega) was supposed to lead a stormtrooper rebellion with a lightsaber, and have a romance with Rose Tico, instead of just running around and shouting "Rey?" Pepperidge Farm remembers ...

oops i guess they just forgot to do that

ran out of time i guess

Remember how Finn (John Boyega) was supposed to lead a Stormtrooper rebellion in the last movie of his Star Wars Trilogy, but they didn't let him do it? I think he's doing it now.

For the Rebellion.

Hm, this Pinwheel tape has a short Nickelodeon promo for Leonard Nimoy's Standby Lights Camera Action, covering Return of the Jedi and Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. Not sure that's ever leaked even? The Meaning of Life section anyway ....
