Mark Hamill says the Force is strong in Ireland

On a new episode of The Star Wars Show, host Andi Gutierrez sat down with Lucasfilm Story Group members Leland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo, Matt Martin, and Rayne Roberts for a almost 30-minute discussion about some of the secrets and Easter eggs fans might not have noticed.

As such, some things have been pointed at that simply don't add up in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and now, the movie's director has provided an explanation and justification for one of the biggest possible issues in it. Who knows, perhaps we will get to see a returned Luke utilise his green saber in Episode IX. "For security it was "air-gapped" - never connected to the internet", Rian Johnson told the Wall Street Journal in an interview.

"[Luke] is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo".

The Last Jedi painted some aspects of Star Wars into a corner, and it's hard to fathom how Abrams will resolve the biggest issues the series now faces when he delivers the sequel trilogy's concluding chapter in 2019. Noseworthy laid out how Luke's powers are foreshadowed by Snoke bridging Rey and Kylo, while Sciretta thought that the appearance of the last-minute astral projection came out of the blue. Rey bringing the lightsaber to a hooded figure, holding it out for them to see, upon which they pull back the hood and reveal that they are none other than Jedi Master Luke Skywalker himself. According to Rian Johnson, Kylo didn't know it was destroyed. But this movie I've seen now a couple times with an audience. Though, no mention has been made yet about what actually happened to Luke's green lightsaber. The Last Jedi turned out to be a great movie, much darker than the first episode and also quite divisive. That doesn't mean we're going to start shouting them from the rooftops, but it does mean we can start talking about them a little less cautiously out in the open, and that's exactly what the Lucasfilm Story Group just did. We certainly can't accuse him of making lazy mistakes at this point.
