John Williams Confirms Return For Star Wars Episode IX

John Williams Confirms Return For Star Wars Episode IX

Aside from the more particular complaints on the current state of the Star Wars universe, there has been a mixed reaction from fans regarding Luke Skywalker's role in "The Last Jedi".

Just before 2017 came to close, the latest entry to the Star Wars series made the second-biggest box office premiere in USA history, bringing in $220 million during the weekend of December 14-17. All the new Force powers in The Last Jedi have precedence in the Expanded Universe and many are even extensions of stuff seen in previous films.

"[Luke] is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo", he explained. So, why did Luke use the blue lightsaber instead of his green lightsaber? Rey bringing the lightsaber to a hooded figure, holding it out for them to see, upon which they pull back the hood and reveal that they are none other than Jedi Master Luke Skywalker himself. The 2015 premiere of "The Force Awakens" is the only movie with a bigger opening box-office weekend in the USA 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. "The one between Kylo and Rey and Snoke's people is just jaw dropping". 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. But this movie I've seen now a couple times with an audience. "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". 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. Some fans loved The Last Jedi and all that it had to offer. That doesn't mean you're going to agree with the choices he made artistically and narratively, but he made them consciously.
