Mark Hamill Reveals How Star Wars: The Force Awakens Almost Ended

Mark Hamill Reveals How Star Wars: The Force Awakens Almost Ended

Despite all of this seemingly positive response, the movie has been met with some criticism from the only thing bigger than the franchise itself: the Star Wars fanbase.

Fans speculated on the movie's title after learning that the seventh Star Wars saga film would be called "The Last Jedi". Here's what Rian Johnson had to say about it in a recent interview.

"[Luke] is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo".

This is certainly an explanation that makes sense, projecting a younger visage to intimidate Kylo and utilising the weapon that would cause him the most distress.

Luke was given the blue lightsaber by Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope but lost it during his duel with Darth Vader on Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro. For example, Johnson talked to the team about the logistics of Admiral Holdo's lightspeed kamikaze move that took out the First Order fleet of Star Destroyers.

"We as an audience saw that".

"When we see Rey, we want to hear Rey's theme", he said about new Star Wars heroine.

There's an argument to be made that Luke's projection is just a major enhancement of a previously seen Force ability. Many believe he destroyed it after sinking the X-Wing on Ahch-To as he denounced the force, and that the crystal he wears around his neck is actually the Kyber crystal from this lightsaber. Details about the new trilogy are sparse, but it will reportedly chronicle "new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored", according to The Verge. Given the divisive response to Star Wars: The Last Jedi amongst fans so far, plenty of people are likely to have other issues with the movie that simply can't be reconciled.
