Yoda (the sole remaining Jedi Master) sets one very specific precondition on Luke being able to call himself a Jedi, that he has to confront Vader. “No more training do you require,” Yoda assured him. “Already know you that which you need.” “Then I am a Jedi?” Luke pressed. No. He knew he was not, quite. Something still lacked. Yoda wrinkled ...

He was mocking Rey. He was arguing to Rey that he wasn't the savior she thought he was, and he wasn't going to return and go defeat the First Order on his own. He mis-identifies the lighstaber to mock the idea that he could take down the whole army with his weapon. Laser sword is the way somebody who is unfamiliar to a lightsaber might refer to one, so it ...

I don't know the canonical answer, but flesh-and-blood creatures can have crystals growing off of their fur. This is an image of a furry animal with ice crystals growing off of its fur: It lives on a planet where it rains both liquid and crystal water, depending on temperature. Edit the first picture shows a creature with ice crystals that had actually ...

The very short answer is that although the outer "fur" of the Vulptex is crystalline, the inner part of the animal appears to remain mundane flesh and blood. "The theory is they’ve fed off this planet for so long that their fur has become crystalline. They’ve taken on the very surface of the planet they live on.” The Last Jedi: New Revelations ...

She is in Episode VIII, filming is complete, and her scenes will not be changed. General Leia Organa was played by Carrie Fisher, who was definitely going to be in The Last Jedi (Episode VIII): “She’s in ‘VIII,’ and we’re not changing eight to deal with her passing,” Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger said during an on-stage conversation with his wife, ...

Luke has no way of knowing that his blue lightsaber had been destroyed. He was on Ahch-To when it happened and presumably was still cut off from the Force. As for why Kylo didn't notice the inconsistency, that's an intentional choice by the filmmakers. You may have noticed during the fight that at one point they zoom in on Luke's feet. It was previously ...

He saw her helping him, and assumed she was on his side It’s that old standby of prophecies, exact words. Both Rey and Kylo are correct in what they saw. It’s important to note that Rey says she saw Kylo’s future, but “just the shape of it” (so she was receiving some impressions, not necessarily images). Rey doesn’t necessarily see Kylo killing Snoke, and ...


75

It was 100% Kylo Ren. When Snoke was slain, Rey had her back to him and when she turned around to see what happened, she was in complete shock. Also, Snoke narrated Kylo Ren's thoughts, which included him (Kylo Ren) striking down his enemy. Lastly, Kylo Ren lied about who killed Supreme Leader Snoke because it would be considered treason, and Kylo Ren ...

Not only was it a puppet, but they even got the original voice-actor/puppeteer Frank Oz to provide the voice and operate the puppet. And if you were wondering, yes, it is Frank Oz puppeteering the whole scene, reuniting the cinema veteran with Mark Hamill decades after they first appeared onscreen together. “Frank came back, and Frank puppeteered ...

Temiri Blagg held his hand out and the broom traveled toward him. I think we can presume that he used the Force rather than it being some kind of high technology hover-broom.


74

The implication was that Rey was somehow blocking him through her own efforts to move the hilt. Note his surprise that an object so small doesn't come on command. The exertion actually causes him physical pain which in turn weakens his Force abilities to the point that Rey can overpower him and call the lightsaber to her. He retracted his blade, turned, ...


73

Could it be something else: The details of his appearance are inconsequential to Kilo Ren, as @TenthJustice says he is blinded to what is in front of his eyes. In fact

His vehicle was slowed by the (pressure of the) cannon's beam. You see his ship buckling under the pressure and slowing. Based on a quick eyeball assessment of his speed, from the point seen below it should have only taken him about five seconds to reach the cannon, yet he's still more than a hundred yards away eight seconds later when Rose hits him. It's ...

There's shallow water under the cliff on the island side whereas there's deeper water under the ledge on the other side of the gap. Presumably the really big fish won't come into the shallows and it would be almost impossible (without the Force) to balance a pole long enough to reach the deeper water from the cliff. On the south side of the island, a ...


64

Snoke wasn't reading Kylo's mind. He was sensing his feelings and intentions. Rey was attempting to convince Kylo to return to the light side, and she was failing. Snoke could sense that Kylo was still filled with hate and anger, and he was right. He even accurately predicts Kylo's actions: aiming his lightsaber and killing his enemy. And that is what Kylo ...


63

Entirely speculative as we don't see her do it, but Rey stole them. The viewer is made to believe that Luke was in fact about to burn the sacred texts and that Yoda did it for him because Yoda believed it's time for Luke to move on from those ways and to realise his students will grow beyond him. Yoda almost certainly knew that Rey had taken the books ...

Yes. Johnson’s openly stated so in an interview: Literally the first question I asked Johnson in an interview on Friday was, “That had to be a Hardware Wars reference in The Last Jedi, right?” Johnson let out a bellowing laugh and said, “I’m so happy you saw that.” After explaining that I haven’t found too many people yet who have gotten the reference, ...

Space Gary is indeed an alien who appears in the casino on Canto Bight. This has been confirmed by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson on twitter. @FanthaTracks: We want to know if you can confirm this cute little creature is #spacegary in #TheLastJedi @rianjohnson: YES! Wow, good eyes. Twitter, @rianjohnson The above tweet seems to have ...

The film's Visual Dictionary describes it as a ... natural blowhole where seawater has carved away a cave of polished rock. This cave causes Force-visions that are very similar to those seen in Empire Strikes Back when Luke enters the cave on Dagobah. Both are natural vergence points for dark side energy. A natural convergence of energy, strong in ...

Kylo says "The Supreme leader is dead" to which Hux replies "Long live the Supreme Leader". Basically they're confirming that the [old] Supreme leader (Snoke) is dead so they now need to transfer their wish of long life to the [new] Supreme Leader (Kylo Ren).

Luke was never trying to teach Rey how to use the Force. He was trying to show her why the Jedi needed to end- and, by extension, why he would not train her. The first lesson was supposed to show Rey what the Force actually was; she already knew how to access it, but she had no idea what it was or how dangerous it could be, like a child playing with a ...

He tries to remove the lightsaber's mythical image. The term lightsaber implies a lot of things beyond the actual technical device. For example, it is a part of the Jedi religion, it is a weapon of mythical reputation, it is the weapon that great heroes fought their heroic battles with. Luke wants to make Rey understand that everything beyond the apparatus ...

Luke over-exerted himself. This Jedi had not moved since dawn. During that time, the mountain had quaked. A cliff had crumbled. The twin suns had begun to set. The moon had gone on the rise. It had taken all his strength to do what he had done. The salt lines of tears on his face showed the incredible strain. Now that it was done, he could ...

This is addressed in the film's official novelisation. He stuck his head onto the top of his welding arm, then shoved the whole thing into the junction box. Meanwhile, his body was held in place by the sides of the "droid socket". With inventiveness born of desperation, BB-8 had lowered the elevator he used to assume his station in the droid socket ...

A Super Star Destroyer like Vader's Executor is approximately 19,000m long and some 6000m wide and about 1500m deep. By comparison, Snoke's mobile capital is 13,000m long, over 60,500m wide and more than 3000m deep. Figures sourced from the Star Wars Databank and The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary

Leia used the force, brought out by her survival instinct. Survival in space is something that seems within the grasp of Jedi to do, as is evidenced by Plo Koon in The Clone Wars I can withstand the pressure for some time While it's unclear whether or not this is a skill specific to the Jedi, it seems to be with their ...

There are several reasons: Yoda likely didn't know where Ahch-To was, until he became a Force Ghost. Luke only found out after he had access to both Imperial (thanks to R2D2's hacking) and New Republic archives after the Rebellion won and the New Republic was established. And even then, finding it was a big difficulty for Leia, who had access to same info. ...

A recent tweet from the head of the Star Wars Story Group, Pablo Hidalgo would suggest that (artificial) gravity plays its part in getting the bombs out of the magazine. There's gravity on the bomber. We saw a person fall and a remote control fall. That's really all you need to get the bombs to fall out the bottom and then keep falling. The Last Jedi:...

It has already been established that when a Jedi becomes one with the Force, that they (sometimes) take physical objects with them. Yoda goes with his robes and his necklace. Kenobi, by comparison, seems to have left his robe as a distraction to Vader so it's certainly possible that a Jedi can choose what to take with them. ...

He overheard Finn and Poe talking about them. Before Poe starts his mutiny, he radios Finn to inform him that Vice Admiral Holdo is planning to flee the cruiser and head to the surface and they need to get the tracker down ASAP to make the jump to hyperspace. During this scene, DJ is sat in a chair behind Finn listening to the whole conversation, the film ...
