The Last Jedi nearly had a different ending

The Last Jedi nearly had a different ending

If that last thing sounded too ridiculous to be true, you have clearly forgotten which time it is that we live in and the corresponding fact that pretty much nothing now is too ridiculous to be true. But maybe director Rian Johnson said it best with this tweet. After all, we're supposed to go see the movie. While those of us who love the property often thrill at in-the-know references and winking nostalgia, for Star Wars newbies all that nuance is lost, and throwbacks can feel confusing. The film focused on a small group of Rebels lead by Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) as they searched for the plans to stop the Galactic Empire from activating their unsafe planet destroyer Death Star.

So, continue with your fanbro edits to the film. But perhaps my biggest complaint with the film is the manner in which it introduces a whole slew of new characters to an already bloated ensemble, at the cost of utterly wasting previously established characters. By contrast, as THR points out, "the new Star Wars films lean especially heavily on references and nostalgia for the originals".

Yesterday, word broke that some dude had recut Star Wars: The Last Jedi to adhere more closely to an incredibly sexist vision for the franchise that's as brazen and very bad as it is unsurprising. But I can't help it.

Or how the most powerful Sith Lord in the Galaxy, with such a dose of The Force that he can bend metal just by staring at it, can't recognise his own freaking daughter when she's standing right in front of him? With this thematic development, the parallels are drawn back to "A New Hope" where a young "nobody" ends up saving the galaxy and then "The Phantom Menace" where a really young nobody ends up nearly destroying the galaxy. He's not exactly the Luke you know, with the years in isolation taken away any youthful exuberance, but my god he's still Luke. The film incorporates the overarching theme of evil and its ability to entice individuals, which is illustrated in the numerous artistic choices to highlight the colour red.

"They were filthy junk traders who sold you off for drinking money", Kylo Ren told her after betraying and killing Supreme Leader Snoke. No longer a little emo bitch, he's totally unpredictable, unsafe and placed to be a compelling threat in the future. Even Mark Hamill admitted when he first read Johnson's script that he didn't recognize the character anymore and was a bit anxious how the world would perceive his more bitter version of the iconic hero.

In a nation going through tumultuous, divisive times, many will look towards the familiar for comfort.
