Star Wars The Last Jedi poster

ScreenRant has collected a number of tweets from fans who tweaked the film’s new poster to humorous effect. Here are a few of my favorites:

In the helicopter shot above, you can barely see Luke and Rey standing on the side of the mountain. To the left of Rey, there’s a big rock formation near the edge of the cliffside. Because Star Wars fans can be nuts sometimes, a fan on Twitter wondered if he could see Yoda standing on top of that rock overseeing Rey’s training. But Lucasfilm Story Group member Pablo Hidalgo shot down that notion pretty quickly:

In an interview with MTV, John Boyega was asked if the bromance between Finn and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) would continue in the new movie. “Absolutely. One hundred percent. Poe’s my boy. That’s my dude. The love is potent. We’re doing very well,” he said. And Boyega is very aware of the fanfiction that’s been written imagining the two characters as lovers:

“I know about FinnPoe. There’s many erotic images that I have received, and I appreciate all support for Finn and his butt cheeks.”

How amazing would it be if Disney decided to make the subtext of that relationship actual text in the new movie? Well, we can dream.

In an interview with ABC, Mark Hamill was asked whether that was actually Luke Skywalker uttering the final line of the teaser (“It’s time for the Jedi to end.”), and he confirmed that it was indeed him and spoke about how shocked he was to read the script.

“There’s a difference between teaser and a trailer. A teaser is supposed to show you dynamic images that heighten your awareness and make you want to see the trailer, but avoid all story points if at all possible. [But] I think that’s the only story point that’s in the teaser, which is Luke saying it’s time for the Jedi to end. It was as shocking to me to read what Rian had written as I’m sure it will be for the audience.”

Let’s finish it off with one more Photoshop job. This one hails from Simon Etchells (via Reddit), and it takes the Last Jedi design and replaces key characters with ones from A New Hope. Since the Jedi poster was obviously inspired by the original poster for A New Hope, this mashup finally completes the circle and a Star Wars angel has just received its wings. Thanks Simon!
