Star Wars The Last Jedi

Now that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been in theaters for nearly a month, fans are no longer as worried about spoilers. That doesn’t mean we’re going to start shouting them from the rooftops, but it does mean we can start talking about them a little less cautiously out in the open, and that’s exactly what the Lucasfilm Story Group just did.

On a new episode of The Star Wars Show, host Andi Gutierrez sat down with Lucasfilm Story Group members Leland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo, Matt Martin, and Rayne Roberts for a nearly 30-minute discussion about some of the secrets and Easter eggs fans might not have noticed. They include references to Star Wars Battlefront II, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and some little threads that may be explored in future Star Wars stories.

Mark Hamill - Star Wars The Last Jedi Disagreement

Movies can change drastically over the course of production. And in a series like Star Wars, where the directors are replaced movie to movie, there will inevitably be some ideas left on the cutting room floor. One of those ideas is the original ending for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Mark Hamill has revealed the original ending for The Force Awakens, which could have changed the entire course of Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Last year, the actor revealed that the ending was changed at the last minute, but the nature of what changed has been veiled in mystery. But now, it seems he’s been given the go-ahead to say exactly what that was, or at least, Disney is not watching him as hawkishly anymore.

Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi follow.

The Last Jedi Conspiracy Theory

It’s been over two weeks since Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit theaters, and the movie is still stirring up fans into a frenzy. While the debate still rages online, parts of the fandom are getting out of control.

Mark Hamill previously voiced his initial distaste for the direction of Luke Skywalker’s character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, something that I personally vehemently disagreed with. But then Hamill clarified that all of those concerns went out the window once he actually saw the movie, and he regretted expressing any of that skepticism he felt. But apparently that’s not good enough for some fans, because a conspiracy theory about the production of The Last Jedi has surfaced. Thankfully, Mark Hamill has no problem debunking this nonsense. In order to explain, we have to dive into spoilers, so don’t read any further if you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Read More »

mark hamill the last jedi

Two weeks after its release, the Star Wars: The Last Jedi discourse is far from over. Fans are starkly divided on whether Rian Johnson‘s newest entry into the Star Wars saga is good or not, but star Mark Hamill certainly hasn’t helped to calm the fan outcry.

Hamill has publicly aired his grievances with Johnson over the direction for Luke Skywalker, the character that Hamill has inhabited for decades. After initially expressing doubts over the choices for Luke’s arc, he walked back that statement, giving his full support to Johnson. But soon, Hamill was back to adding fuel to the fan fire, claiming “He’s not my Luke Skywalker anymore.” And now, surprise surprise, Hamill is realizing that he shouldn’t have bad-mouthed a movie that arguably gave Luke his most complex and compelling storyline yet.

Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi ahead.

Mark Hamill The Last Jedi

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: Mark Hamill is completely wrong about Luke Skywalker and the Jedi.)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is easily the most divisive movie the iconic sci-fi saga has ever seen. Hardcore Star Wars fans are having endless debates about whether director Rian Johnson‘s new chapter in the franchise throws everything we love about Star Wars to the wind, or if it merely introduces new elements into the galaxy while still respecting what came before it. This is an argument that will be going on for years to come. Now Mark Hamill is throwing some more fuel onto that fire.

We already know that Mark Hamill fundamentally disagreed with Rian Johnson’s ideas for how to continue the story of Luke Skywalker, but he eventually came around to the filmmaker’s way of thinking. But Some recent remarks from the original trilogy star about the trajectory of Luke Skywalker in the movie indicate that he still hasn’t come to terms with his character arc. In order to properly discuss this concept, we have to dig into spoilers, so if you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi yet, do not read any further. Read More »
