John Williams Confirms Return For Star Wars Episode IX

Star Wars Themed Produce Exists Because Why Not IS STAR WARS LEAVING FANS BEHIND?

Everyone's mileage may vary when it comes to Star Wars VIII, but numerous attacks levied against the film don't hold much weight when compared to the previous films.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi may have left even the most ardent supporters of the film with more questions than answers, but one of the mysteries that has been frequently mentioned in conversations about Episode VII involves the climactic showdown between Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren. Regardless of what faults the film may have, however, The Last Jedi is a box office success the world over.

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. "For security it was "air-gapped" - never connected to the internet", Rian Johnson told the Wall Street Journal in an interview.

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

He has since exhausted his petitions and appeals through the immigration courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals and the U.S. Ragbir was one of those individuals headed in for a routine check-in when he was detained, community members said.

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.

The script for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was undoubtedly one of the closest-guarded secrets in Hollywood a year ago, and director Rian Johnson employed a fairly simple tactic to prevent spoilers for the film leaking out.

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. But Kylo ren and Rey destroyed that lightsaber on Snoke's ship, so why did Kylo Ren fall for it? 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. Though, no mention has been made yet about what actually happened to Luke's green lightsaber. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" not only drew an impressive audience, but was also very well received by critics, scoring a 90 percent rating on the review site Rotten Tomatoes.
