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!

Adam Driver Had No Problem Going Shirtless in 'The Last Jedi'

Adam Driver goes shirtless during a memorable scene in the new movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the film’s director Rian Johnson says the actor had no problem stripping down for it.

Rian opened up about why the shirtless moment was necessary for the plot. The scene happens while Kylo Ren and Rey are having one of their conversations through their minds.

“It’s all about those Force connection scenes,” Rian told People. “The keyword being intimacy. And the idea that this was a way to just, why not step that up? The idea that, what’s even more uncomfortable having a conversation face to face with a person you don’t want to, is if they’re half-naked during it, while you’re having to do it. And so it was just another way of kind of disrobing Kylo literally and figuratively a little bit more, and pushing that sense of these conversations becoming increasingly more intimate.”

Adam looks so damn good because he’d been training hardcore for the past six months for those fight scenes. I’m like, ‘Eh. He looks so good. We should put him up there,’” he added.

So did Adam have any issue with going shirtless? “No, no, he’s good. He’s great. He knew he looked good,” Rian said.

Daisy recently opened up about being surprised and shocked by where Rian Johnson took the scrip of The Last Jedi.

“I was also very surprised.

And yes, it’s an unexpected story so there was a lot to talk about – so I felt nervous, but luckily Rian explained everything and I thought ‘oh, OK’.”

Rian Johnson, the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is revealing something that nearly every viewer likely missed while watching the new film this weekend!

Fans initially thought that this was the first Star Wars movie to not feature the iconic line, “I have a bad feeling this,” but it actually is in the movie.

The droid BB-8 delivers the line early on in the film during the battle against the First Order. BB-8 says the line to Poe (Oscar Isaac), who replies, “Hey, happy beeps here, buddy, c’mon.”

“It seemed like a fun character to deliver that line,” Rian told Huffington Post. “I think originally I had Poe respond, ‘Oh, I got a good feeling about it. Keep your chin up.’ And then I made it a little less explicit just to make it more fun.”

You’ll have to go re-watch the movie to check out the moment, plus all these other Easter Eggs!
