Rian Johnson Answers a Burning 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Ending Question

Rian Johnson Answers a Burning 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Ending Question

Williams has been scoring Star Wars films since 1977, when Steven Spielberg put him in contact with a friend who was looking for a composer for his latest film - George Lucas and Star Wars: A New Hope.

"So I was led to believe that I still had the Force and it was really strong in me. You get up in the morning and see vistas where I was sure it was a special effect". The Last Jedi turned out to be a great movie, much darker than the first episode and also quite divisive.

For some, this was an obvious hint that Luke was actually using a powerful force projection technique against Kylo, because surely the famed Jedi couldn't be using Anakin's broken saber. He draws his lightsaber, and Luke Skywalker does the same. During the fight, he uses Anakin Skywalker's blue lightsaber that was destroyed aboard Snoke's ship.

Almost a year ago Coca-Cola revealed a new "one brand" marketing approach to counteract the brand's diluted presence on shelf. Diet Coke, known as Coca-Cola light in most worldwide markets, is available in more than 110 countries around the world.

Johnson also has a technical answer for fans who point out that Kylo should have known something fishy was going on with all the blue, since Kylo himself destroyed the blue lightsaber only moments earlier. "He knows that Kylo's Achilles heel is his rage, and so that's why he kind of makes himself look younger, the way Kylo would've last seen him in their confrontation at the temple, and that's why he chose to bring Kylo's grandfather's lightsaber down there - the lightsaber that Kylo screamed at Rey, 'that's mine, that belongs to me'".

On the references to other scores in The Last Jedi: "When we see Rey, we want to hear Rey's theme", Williams says. The truth is, we see the lightsaber split in half, Kylo sees a blinding flash of light and is knocked unconscious, and then Rey takes the lightsaber away before he wakes up. He doesn't know what happened to it. It can be found inside Luke Skywalker's (Mark Hamill) hut on Ahch-To. So it would stand to reason that Luke is back in possession of it because Rey gave it to him. There are numerous aspects of the film that are being dissected by fans, but director Rian Johnson just weighed in on one of them himself.

Odds are Rian Johnson's explanation either wasn't necessary or it wasn't enough.
