With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker coming to theaters in a only a month, followers have began to rematch the first two installments of the trilogy in preparation. One fan was skimming via Reddit and noticed one similarity between a scene from The Last Jedi and Return of the Jedi. Heather Campbell posted the clip on Twitter and other people proceed to be fascinated by the parallels that The Last Jedi continues to attract between itself and the unique trilogy movies. Now, the movie isn’t a favourite of a vocal section of the fanbase, however Rian Johnson clearly studied the supply materials very rigorously earlier than attending to work on his entry on this new trilogy. The outcomes are gorgeous, and at the similar time infuriating for lots of followers.
The central half of the clip on Twitter facilities round a shot alternative by the director. By framing the second that Luke is attempting to creep up on a resting Ben Solo, Johnson instantly conjures an analogous expression from Mark Hamil to the one he had in Return of the Jedi. In our world as we speak, the outcomes seem like a use of that growing old know-how well-liked in deepfake movies. But, the wild half is that that is all actual! It’s a dramatic via line between two of the lowest factors for Skywalker throughout the course of these movies. He’s at his most uncertain in these two cases and it’s straightforward to see why.
I simply realized from Reddit that the framing for Luke Skywalker’s highest level of doubt/concern in Return of the Jedi is the very same framing in The Last Jedi when he realizes his failure with Ben Solo.

As this trilogy attracts to a detailed, many surprise what else is coming down the pipe for the franchise after The Rise of Skywalker. Now, Johnson nonetheless has his trilogy to deal with at a later date, however that has followers who didn’t get pleasure from The Last Jedi greater than a little bit ornery. Nevertheless, the director has stepped as much as defend his creations at many various factors in the final couple of years. Last Jedi’s damaged and jaded Luke dwelling as a hermit whereas refusing to assist the galaxy in opposition to The First Order will try this. Even his closing act of heroism by way of astral projection to Crait, which allowed The Resistance to flee wasn’t sufficient to quell the fervor.
He beforehand wrote on Twitter, “Hot take: Luke is in fact 100% consistent with his character (not the way he’s described in marketing blurbs, but his actual, based-on-his-words-and-actions character) from the OT. I’ll be at the bar if you need me.”
