John Williams Will Score Star Wars: Episode IX

The Force re-awakened Rian Johnson talks evolution of'The Last Jedi

Take the film's final confrontation on the crystal-strewn planet of Crait, where Luke Skywalker baits Kylo Ren into the one-on-one confrontation (so it appears) that his power-thirsty nephew has been craving.

Despite seeming like a plot hole, Rian Johnson actually seems to have really thought all of this through.

Those debates will rage on in the years to come, but when it comes to one big moment from the Star Wars The Last Jedi ending, Rian Johnson has the ideal answer that should satisfy any potentially confused or annoyed fans. Truth be told, the writing has been on the wall, after The Last Jedi failed to dethrone Ex-File 3: The Return of the Exes in its second week of release.

However, with China being one of the last major markets for the film to debut, it is the last big opportunity to squeeze every dollar out of audiences. In between we see him use the Jedi mind trick and make a Stormtrooper hear something that's not there, before pushing Luke to "use the Force" and go all Bend it Like Beckham on a pair of photon torpedos.

Composer John Williams says he will return for the final entry in the current trilogy of Star Wars films, which is set to be directed by J.J. Abrams.

We see the Force perform acts of telekinesis but it also allows for mental manipulation. Each of them were using the Force to pull it towards them, but instead the lightsaber broke in half in a burst of energy, knocking Kylo Ren out and leaving Rey to escape. This would certainly be taking the idea to an extreme, but we're certainly led to believe that what Luke does is extreme.

It's been almost a month sinceStar Wars: The Last Jedi was unleashed in theaters, and now the Lucasfilm story group is digging into some of the secrets hidden within the film.

It's a little frustrating that Rian Johnson had to explain this when many had already assumed this fact, mostly because it's something that shouldn't really require an explanation.
