The Last Jedi: Rian Johnson Defends Luke's New Force Powers

It's been almost a month sinceStar Wars: The Last Jedi was unleashed in theaters, and now the Lucasfilm story group is digging into some of the secrets hidden within the film. Fans speculated on the movie's title after learning that the seventh Star Wars saga film would be called "The Last Jedi".

The Last Jedi begins by depicting Luke Skywalker as a crusty old hermit with blue milk in his beard, toward the end of the film we see Luke seemingly appear as his younger self as he faces down Kylo Ren on the surface of Crait.

On a new episode of The Star Wars Show, host Andi Gutierrez sat down with Lucasfilm Story Group members Leland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo, Matt Martin, and Rayne Roberts for a almost 30-minute discussion about some of the secrets and Easter eggs fans might not have noticed.

Many movie series can suffer from having a bad sequel, and that challenge is being observed as fans criticize "The Last Jedi".

For any fans who think director Rian Johnson was being all willy-nilly with Star Wars mythology, the chat with these Lucasfilm Story Group members indicates that there was plenty of thought when it came to introducing new concepts into the universe. The humor, meanwhile, is hardly different from what Han, Yoda, and others displayed in Original Trilogy. Hamill noted that he was shocked to hear that Johnson make his character, normally so full of optimism and hope, become so distant from his past beliefs. A new direction for the Star Wars films, the return of Luke Skywalker, and an unpredictable story line.

With all of the creative risks that were taken in this installment, it is clear that the movie constantly demonstrates a theme of leaving the past behind. "And they said, 'No, we caught that and we worked it all out". This serves an even deeper objective as avid Star Wars fans make new speculation while awaiting the release of Episode IX, set for December 2019.
