Rian Johnson Defends New Force Powers In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars 8 Rey with Luke's old blue lightsaber

Regardless of how the film was perceived, the Star Wars movie train continues to chug along.

Some fans loved The Last Jedi and all that it had to offer.

Rian Johnson, the director of the "The Last Jedi", denied he wanted to come back for the ninth film. "I wish we could have shot the entire film there". Rian Johnson ended up being tagged in the conversation, and Johnson did end up chiming in on the topic, where he pointed out that really none of the Force abilities are ever specifically called out prior to being seen on screen.

"I typed Episode VIII out on a MacBook Air". I carried it around and used it for nothing except writing the script.

It's a fair point. That doesn't mean we're going to start shouting them from the rooftops, but it does mean we can start talking about them a little less cautiously out in the open, and that's exactly what the Lucasfilm Story Group just did.

The Luke Skywalker we see at the beginning of The Last Jedi has rejected the Force, so to have him showing off one of two things he learned from Yoda (the other: backflips) would have changed the movie entirely. The idea that you can pull an object to your hand probably makes sense once you learn you can use the Force to strangle somebody, but there was no reason to believe you could use the Force to strangle somebody until we saw Darth Vader do it.

First, the saber: "The truth is, we see the lightsaber split in half [but] Kylo sees a blinding flash of light and is knocked unconscious, and then Rey takes the lightsaber away before he wakes up". And if they can, could that be how Luke is appearing on Crait, a mass Jedi mind trick?

Odds are Rian Johnson's explanation either wasn't necessary or it wasn't enough. The 2015 premiere of "The Force Awakens" is the only movie with a bigger opening box-office weekend in the US than "The Last Jedi", and its success has often been attributed to the amount of nostalgia stitched into it, with several thematic callbacks to "A New Hope", the 1977 original.
