FAQs

Edit
  • Finn didn't learn to fly. He operates a skim speeder, which is a unique form of land speeder. Land speeders are the Star Wars equivalent of a car. Ships that fly in the atmosphere (such as Luke's T-16 Skyhopper or the various speeders seen on Coruscant) and in space are an entirely different vehicle which Finn isn't capable of operating. Edit

  • No. The title is intentionally ambiguous, as Jedi is both singular and plural. As stated in the opening crawl of The Force Awakens, Luke Skywalker is the last Jedi. TLJ Director, Rian Johnson has also confirmed this in interviews and via Twitter. In the first trailer for this film, Luke is heard saying "I only know one truth; it's time for the Jedi to end.", which could mean he refuses to train Rey to become a Jedi but may still train her in the use of the force, which would make Luke the literal last Jedi. However, if Luke trains Rey to be a Jedi, then they would both be the last.

    From episode 9 the title is in plural: Luke, Leia and Rey could be considered the Last Jedi (though Leia officially never ended her training) eventually Rey being the only Jedi still alive and capable of renewing the Jedi Order (or not). Edit

The FAQ items below may give away important plot points.

  • Yes. Phasma is not in episode IX. John Boyega confirmed in an interview that the character died in her fall. wookiepedia, the official star wars wiki lists her as deceased as well. So until/unless a story or film reveals her to be alive, her death can be considered confirmed. Edit

  • She passed out. She was critically injured but survived. She also appears in IX. Edit

  • Spoilers for episode IX:

    Snoke is revealed in Episode IX to be a clone or a manufactured being created by Palpatine. It's unclear whether Palpatine controlled Snoke directly, as a puppet or if Snoke had his own consciousness, and was simply programmed to carry out Palpatine's will. The latter is more likely, as Palpatine comments that he's impressed with how Snoke trained Kylo Ren. Edit

  • The easy answer is because using this ability is so energy-consuming, that the user dies as a result. Luke may have been the first to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to save his comrades/friends/family.

    There's a line foreshadowing this during Rey and Kylo Ren's first Force bond when he tells Rey, "You're not doing this, the effort would kill you." Edit

  • While travelling to the star destroyer they plan to board, Finn and D.J. are in the cockpit of their ship while Finn talks to Poe over the com link. Poe mentions Holdo's plan to evacuate on the transports to Crait. There is a shot of D.J. subtly reacting when Poe says this. That's how he knew. So when the group gets captured, he gives up the information for his freedom and payment. Edit

  • Luke is consumed with guilt over the massacre of his New Jedi Order, at the hands of his own nephew no less. Luke feels he failed his students, his family and by extension, the galaxy. After the fall of his New Jedi Order, Luke went in to exhile. In his solitude, Luke reflects on the history of the Jedi and concludes that it is a history of failure. Luke truly feels the Jedi Order needs to end, because the rise of the light side of the force leads to the rise of darkness. Causing death and destruction across the galaxy. Edit
