It has been a week since The Last Jedi released and the world is still torn on it. While everyone agrees that it was a very, very different kind of Star Wars film, no one can seem to agree if that is a good thing or not. Should the franchise remain what we know and love? Or should it evolve into something different?
Wherever you fall on this debate, I, for one at least think it is good we are having it. One of the biggest complaints about Hollywood is that they make the same things over and over again. So shouldn’t we be wanting something new?
Was The Last Jedi too new?
Director Rian Johnson has finally chimed in on this issue. While I think we all suspected that he would stand by his work, he did also mention that dividing people was never his intention.
But much like The Last Jedi itself people are really divided on Johnson’s answer.
This will be a fight that lasts a long time. It will only end when the light side and the dark side can strike a balance.
