He would have changed the opening...
Brad Bird apparently has an idea on how Star Wars: Return of the Jedi could be improved. Patton Oswalt was speaking with Esquire and mentioned that Bird once told him what he would have done to improve Jedi.
"I was talking with [director] Brad Bird one time, and he said it's like the beginning of Return of the Jedi," said Oswalt. "Luke shows up and he's a badass. He said they should've opened it with Luke in the swamp saying to Yoda, 'You said "Don't go." I said "F#@k you, I'm gonna go help my friends." I went and got my hand cut off and my friends are in even worse trouble because of what I did. I f#@ked up everything.' And then Yoda should have gone, 'Now you're a Jedi. Now you're beyond the fear of failure. Now you're ready.' That would have made it even cooler."
