Rian Johnson Responds to the Haters of 'The Last Jedi'

Rian Johnson is speaking out to respond to haters of his movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi, specifically those who criticized Luke’s Force projection near the end of the film.

The director wrote a thread of tweets in which he didn’t even use words to explain himself.

Rian started the thread with the eyeball emojis to let his followers know that he could see their critiques. He then shared a photo of his bookshelf with the book “The Jedi Path” on it.

Then, Rian opened up the book to the “Advanced Force Techniques” section and shared the definition of a “doppelganger,” as explained in the Star Wars endorsed book.

“Doppelganger permits a Jedi to create a short-lived duplicate of himself or herself or an external object that is visually indistinguishable from the real item. Those who have perfected this ability can create phantoms of any person of their choosing or trick an enemy into seeing more objects, such as droids, than are actually present,” the book explained.

Rian than faded into the distance with the help of a Homer Simpson GIF. He also had a conversation about Leia’s float in space moment!

    Yes, mature professional adults use the term “haters” when referring to critiques from fans. This guy needs to shut up and keep doing his work. Fans will be fans, he’s just as immature as they are.

    The Last Jedi was amazing! Rian is doing great and I’m so happy to see him shut down the haters!

    I love how this shitty director / shitty writer is dismissing the criticism as “haters”. You crapped out a TERRIBLE film . . . not just a TERRIBLE Star Wars film. No amount of mental gymnastics is going to change that fact. To say that the critique of the fans (both male and female) is just “butthurt fanboys” is also a feeble attempt to justify this TERRIBLE movie. Either you’re a Star Wars fan or you like the last Jedi . . . which is it?

    Not even the prequels got this much hate from SW fans back when they premiered.

    Rian did a great job! The Last Jedi was amazing! I’m so sad that he will not direct SW 9.
