“I think it’s impossible for any of us to approach Star Wars without thinking about it as a myth that we were raised with, and how that myth, that story, baked itself into us and affected us. The ultimate intent was not to strip away – the intent was to get to the basic, fundamental power of myth. And ultimately I hope the film is an affirmation of the power of the myth of Star Wars in our lives.” – Rian Johnson

“This is not going to go the way you think.” – Luke Skywalker

The Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks new mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

“Writer-director Rian Johnson’s middle chapter in the Sequel Trilogy was a rich, adventurous, mythical tale continuing the stories of Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn and Poe Dameron, that also dug deep into the soul of Luke Skywalker himself, decades after the triumphant finale of Return Of The Jedi. Along the way it contained all kinds of surprises, developing the threads of The Force Awakens in fresh and unexpected ways. It was another box office smash, pulling in over $1.3 billion worldwide – but it also challenged its audience in ways that some weren’t quite prepared for at the time.” Ben Travis, Empire

As a sensational Star Wars vehicle and a pensive reminder of ideals for any age, The Last Jedi holds its lightsaber high – a beacon for what these films can be, and what they can impart.

Cory Woodroof, Nashville Scene

[Director Rian Johnson’s] movie has a sense of humor about itself and a sense of joy, but its emotional generosity, even in the midst of all the extravagant green-screen work, is its best special effect.

Glass Onion

After resurrecting the classic whodunnit with Knives Out, writer-director Rian Johnson set himself the task of bringing the genre up to date with the lavish sequel, which is as much a satire as it is a murder mystery. Not that it is any less fiendish.
