The famous "Wilhelm Scream" sound effect has been found in every canon Star Wars film, most recently in The Force Awakens and Rogue One

Was it used in The Last Jedi?

My ears heard one...

...near the end of the film. Having seen the film twice now, I believe I heard it during the fight between Kylo and Luke (or rather Luke's projection) in front of the mine doors, when Luke ducks out of the way of Kylo's first strike.

This article concurs with my hearing:

Building on Praxis' excellent answer, we can hear the scream distinctly at timecode 2:15:30 as Kylo Ren backswings his sword at Luke.

    Interesting. Now the question is why is it in that scene?

    @RedCaio - Because it's traditional, but at the same time the director probably didn't want it. This will be the compromise.

    @Valorum : It's probably hidden there to give fans a bit of a challenge. Finding these screams has become sport. :-)
