Did You Know?


Rian Johnson: Mark, very understandably, wasn't thrilled about some of the choices in the script. The big things being the place that Luke's head is at, the fact that he's not the Luke Skywalker that we knew, and, frankly, the fact that he dies at the end. Then it was just a matter of really being honest with myself. Like, is that what's best for this trilogy? Is that what should happen here? And just questioning that over and over again.

Misleading Title
20 May 2018 | by d-duffSee all my reviews

Misleading title. I was hoping for two hours of uncut footage of Mark Hamil and Rian Johnson yelling at each other about what Luke Skywalker's character should be, but it was just a normal behind the scenes documentary. It was well made but it didn't offer any insight into the creative differences between Hamil and Johnson that we didn't already know. You can probably skip this one and just watch the YouTube compilation of all the times Mark Hamil tried to warn us about The Last Jedi. It's a lot shorter and much more entertaining.
