Mark Hamill - Star Wars The Last Jedi Disagreement

Towards the end of last month, a slew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi details came from Vanity Fair’s big cover story, but there was one new piece of information that caught fans off guard.

During an interview, Mark Hamill brought up a conversation he had with director Rian Johnson:

“I at one point had to say to Rian, ‘I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character. Now, having said that, I have gotten it off my chest, and my job now is to take what you’ve created and do my best to realize your vision.'”

Some fans took that in a negative way, but Hamill has taken the time to clarify that’s not how he feels about the situation anymore. Find out what else Mark Hamill had to say about his The Last Jedi disagreement below. Read More »

rey new lightsaber

Between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and images from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’ve all seen Rey brandishing the classic blue lightsaber that was once owned by Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker — Lucasfilm even went so far as to rename it as Rey’s lightsaber for marketing purposes.

However, a new lightsaber that Rey wields in images from the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 video game may hint at a plot point in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Snoke Rumors

Last week brought plenty of new details about Star Wars: The Last Jedi thanks to Vanity Fair’s big cover story on the sci-fi sequel coming to theaters late this year. Not only did we get a glimpse at new characters, but we also learned some surprising details about the characters introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Now even more information has come to the surface, thanks to leaked images of some merchandise that will be hitting shelves on September 1 this fall for the big Force Friday II event leading up to the release of The Last Jedi. However, if you want to go into The Last Jedi blindly, I wouldn’t read after the jump since the photos confirm some rumors that have been making the rounds online. We’ll discuss and speculate on what they’ll mean for the movie after the jump. You’ve been warned! Read More »

John Boyega Hugs Adam Driver - Kylo Ren

In the world of acting, there are those stars who are only in character when the camera is rolling, and there are those who prefer to dig a little deeper and stay in character during the production, if not a bit longer. It sounds like Adam Driver belongs in the latter category, at least when it comes to playing the physically and emotionally scarred Star Wars villain Kylo Ren.

At the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren had to make the grim decision to kill his father Han Solo in order to stop the struggle in his mind that kept him from submitting to the dark side completely. Adam Driver has said that because of that, there may be more scars he’s dealing with than the one that now crosses his eye, and when he’s on set, he brings that emotional intensity to his performance.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by fellow cast members John Boyega and Mark Hamill, and they each tried to get through that exterior in their own way during production on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Find out more below. Read More »

Mark Hamill Rian Johnson disagreement

Yesterday’s Vanity Fair’s cover story gave us all kinds of insight into Lucasfilm’s upcoming sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but they aren’t done dropping new snippets of information about the movie, and we just read something that’s worth discussing in a little more detail.

Mark Hamill, who plays one of the most iconic characters in film history, says he “fundamentally disagreed” with the way The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson envisioned Luke Skywalker in the new film. Whoa.

Luke's Lightsaber

A lightsaber is the weapon of a Jedi Knight, an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Since the lightsaber of Anakin Skywalker that was handed down to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) was one of the driving forces of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this specific weapon has become more important than ever, especially for Rey (Daisy Ridley).

After the weapon called out to Rey and gave her a perplexing Force vision, she eventually came to wield it against Kylo Ren before returning it to its rightful owner. However, it sounds like the lightsaber may not exactly belong to Luke anymore, something that might be further explored in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

We’ll dive into that below, along with some interesting information about Luke Skywalker’s current lightsaber, the green one that he constructed sometime between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and the real reason why it wasn’t blue. Plus, for those wondering if Finn will ever wield a lightsaber again, John Boyega offers his own thoughts on the matter. Read More »
