Those debates will rage on in the years to come, but when it comes to one big moment from the Star Wars The Last Jedi ending, Rian Johnson has the ideal answer that should satisfy any potentially confused or annoyed fans.

"When I read [The Last Jedi] before [The Force Awakens] came out, I said 'what?!" and called JJ [Abrams] or Rian [Johnson] to say, 'Are you guys aware of this?

A relatively major plot hole in The Last Jedi has been explained by director Rian Johnson.

In the third act of The Last Jedi, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) returns to square off with his nephew Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

I should stay out of this but... were ANY aspects of force use in the OT (force grabbing objects, force ghosts, even the jedi mind trick) explicitly "set up" before they happened?

It's a fair point.

It gets worse, too, as Chinese theaters have pulled 92 of screenings for Star Wars: The Last Jedi - not that you can blame them, either, as Rian Johnson's somewhat contentious sequel just experienced one of, if not the biggest Friday-to-Friday box office plunges on record. In their epic clash we see Luke use a blue lightsaber instead of his customary green one.

On the references to other scores in The Last Jedi: "When we see Rey, we want to hear Rey's theme", Williams says. We didn't know the Force let you shoot lightning out of your fingertips until we saw the Emperor do it.

The crew also explains the various tiny details that should make the audience realize that Luke isn't really fighting Kylo Ren because he's not there in physical form.

That actually makes a good deal of sense. If a Jedi can make somebody hear something that isn't there, as Obi-Wan does while shutting down the tractor beam in the first film, can a Jedi also make somebody see something that isn't there? This would certainly be taking the idea to an extreme, but we're certainly led to believe that what Luke does is extreme.

"I would very much like to complete that", Williams said in a recent interview with Variety.

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.
