There are some brand new cameos revealed as well, including the presence of Chelsea Hamill, Nathan Hamill and Griffin Hamill, the children of Mark Hamill. And though he had some of the most memorable lightsaber duels in the saga, his battles have been succeeded with some epic fights.

Despite all of this seemingly positive response, the movie has been met with some criticism from the only thing bigger than the franchise itself: the Star Wars fanbase. He said, 'It's okay, I spoke to J.J.

The script for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was undoubtedly one of the closest-guarded secrets in Hollywood a year ago, and director Rian Johnson employed a fairly simple tactic to prevent spoilers for the film leaking out.

On his score for The Post: "I've never done anything quite like it. I knew I was hugely impressed".

Admiral Ackbar, who first appeared in 1983's Return of the Jedi, was killed off in Star Wars: The Last Jedi in an off-screen death, which many fans weren't happy with as it was disrespectful, distasteful, and empty. So it makes sense that the film would be chockablock with Easter eggs to other Star Wars stories.

"I think there's a lot of variety in the various lightsaber duels", Hamill added. And shouldn't Kylo have noticed that Luke was wielding a lightsaber that had just been destroyed? From the lightsaber duels of the original trilogy, to the flipping CG-based fights of the prequels, to the back-to-basics approach from the newer films, all of them have managed to be more impressive than what came before.

The directing will be handed back to Abrams and perhaps this last film of the newest trilogy will give us a better understanding of what moving into an entirely new generation of Star Wars means for both the characters on screen as well as the expectant fans around the world.

Each Star Wars film feels like a culmination of all the ones before it, and The Last Jedi is no exception.
