Trivia

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) remains the most controversial film in the Star Wars franchise, as well as the most divisive film in the history of contemporary cinema. Many fans displeased with the film criticized the choices made by writer/director Rian Johnson, including the overuse of humor, altering space science and character arcs already established in canon, various plot twists and plot holes, subtle left-wing political themes, and a vastly different characterization of Luke Skywalker, which actor Mark Hamill still fundamentally disagrees with.

Quotes

Mark Hamill: I told Rian this. It's no surprise. I said, "I just fundamentally disagree with your concept of this character and how you use him. Now, having said that, I'll do everything within my power to realise your vision." Because, you know, it's not my character to decide. It belongs to other people, they just rent it out to me.

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.
