Rian Johnson Answers a Burning 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Ending Question

This promo film is the latest element of Tourism Ireland's campaign which is created to highlight Ireland as a key Star Wars filming location and promote holidays along the Wild Atlantic Way to Star Wars fans around the world. In between we see him use the Jedi mind trick and make a Stormtrooper hear something that's not there, before pushing Luke to "use the Force" and go all Bend it Like Beckham on a pair of photon torpedos.

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 flawless answer that should satisfy any potentially confused or annoyed fans.

It's a little frustrating that Rian Johnson had to explain this when many had already assumed this fact, mostly because it's something that shouldn't really require an explanation. Williams has been scoring Star Wars films since 1977, when Steven Spielberg put him in contact with a friend who was looking for a composer for his latest film - George Lucas and Star Wars: A New Hope.

There's an argument to be made that Luke's projection is just a major enhancement of a previously seen Force ability.

That actually makes a good deal of sense. And not only is Luke a big part of that, but seeing that blue lightsaber surely brought up thoughts of his grandfather, Darth Vader, whose legacy he's trying to live up to.

Johnson also has a technical answer for fans who point out that Kylo should have known something fishy was going on with all the blue, since Kylo himself destroyed the blue lightsaber only moments earlier. According to Rian Johnson, Kylo didn't know it was destroyed. He draws his lightsaber, and Luke Skywalker does the same. "So if you really want to dig into it and get an explanation, you can say that he doesn't 100 percent know what happened to the lightsaber". 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. They make you feel like family, they were so welcoming, so accommodating and so friendly.
