In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
Regardless of how the film was perceived, the Star Wars movie train continues to chug along.
As we talk about the film, we point out things that we liked, things that caught us off guard, and what we hope we will see in future installments. And it occurred to me last night that what does happen when I watch movies.is I generally find things that are like, 'hmmm, I wonder if I should do that differently.' Which is some really disgusting form of personal criticism because there's really nothing to be done.
"I typed Episode VIII out on a MacBook Air". They include references to Star Wars Battlefront II, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and some little threads that may be explored in future Star Wars stories. "And when the Force is referred to or felt, we want to hear the Force theme, and so on".
We see the Force perform acts of telekinesis but it also allows for mental manipulation. Who knows, perhaps we will get to see a returned Luke utilise his green saber in Episode IX. There are some moments from Admiral Holdo's aforementioned lightspeed attack, some new shots of Benicio del Toro as DJ, and most importantly, the final battle between Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker.
For some, this was an obvious hint that Luke was actually using a powerful force projection technique against Kylo, because surely the famed Jedi couldn't be using Anakin's broken saber.
Rian Johnson responded to a Twitter exchange between Bungie project leader Mark Noseworthy and /Film head Peter Sciretta. There's been no end to the debate surrounding the latest Star Wars film, but few can deny that writer and director Rian Johnson certainly brought something different to the franchise.
