Mark Hamill says the Force is strong in Ireland

Take the film's final confrontation on the crystal-strewn planet of Crait, where Luke Skywalker baits Kylo Ren into the one-on-one confrontation (so it appears) that his power-thirsty nephew has been craving.

Though I admittedly thought that the only theme I liked from Force Awakens was March of the Resistance, I've recently discovered that there is actually a very clever way in which Williams wrote Rey's theme. Truth be told, the writing has been on the wall, after The Last Jedi failed to dethrone Ex-File 3: The Return of the Exes in its second week of release.

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.

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

Last year, Mark Hamill set off a flurry of speculation when he told Empire Magazine there was a big, last-minute adjustment to the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that would have changed something about the then-upcoming Last Jedi. "He knows that Kylo's Achilles heel is his rage, and so that's why he kind of makes himself look younger, the way Kylo would've last seen him in their confrontation at the temple, and that's why he chose to bring Kylo's grandfather's lightsaber down there - the lightsaber that Kylo screamed at Rey, 'that's mine, that belongs to me'". But instead of the green lightsaber that we last saw him wield, both in Return of the Jedi and in flashbacks from The Last Jedi, he's wielding the blue lightsaber he inherited from his father, Anakin Skywalker.

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 website notes that if Williams is nominated for his work on The Post or Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it will be his 51st and 52nd nominations.

Odds are Rian Johnson's explanation either wasn't necessary or it wasn't enough.
