Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is still holding it down out here defending the movie, nearly a year after the film's release. This latest hot take is in response to fans criticizing Luke Skywalker in the film in comparison to the Original Trilogy.
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.— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) November 5, 2018
Fans think Luke's voluntary exile is in opposition to the bravery Luke showed in the Original Trilogy. Luke is a different person in TLJ than he was in the OT. 30 years has passed since then. In a sense, he's following in the footsteps of his masters, such as when Obi-Wan went into exile on Tatooine or when Yoda exiled himself to Dagobah after failing to kill Emperor Palpatine.
The Last Jedi is the best Star Wars movie since Empire. Fight me.
