Why wasn't a giant hole created when Kylo Ren fired upon the vision of Luke Skywalker?

1 Answer 1


Actually, there is a hole behind Luke, but barely visible, and maybe a bit too small given the massive rain of fire that poured upon him. And the hole's immediate surroundings are undisturbed, which can't be right given the cloud of debris created as the walkers fire.

The first shot:

First shot

Increase firepower:

More fire

I said increase firepower!

Keep firing aholes!

Just a tiny scar on the ground?


Plus, there's a bit of a continuity error anyway, because the massive damage from the siege cannon is also absent during the fight between Kylo and Luke. I guess the SFX team missed something on that scene, which would also explain why we don't have a big hole behind Luke.

  • Exactly. Well done. Thank you. (And indeed the hole would be behind him ... so why isn't that entire wall of rock also falling on his projected head?) Commented Oct 25, 2018 at 14:54

    This would be better with a freehand red circle - kidding, nice catch :p

  • @RandyZeitman That's no rockwall but the door to the old rebel base. The canon punched a tiny hole in it, compared to it's size. It's not going to fall down any time soon. Since you like the answer, please accept it by clicking on the checkmark to the right, thank you.

  • From the looks of it, the red area immediately surrounding him has been fused into glass, which would explain the general lack of holes.

    @Sava: "The canon punched a tiny hole in it" – This is the opposite of what normally happens in Star Wars, giant holes punched into canon. Commented Nov 4, 2018 at 22:23
