Will we ever know who the Final Jedi actually is?
The day might but come when Star Wars: The Final Jedi lastly clears up the query that has plagued us for 259 days: Who is that this “final” Jedi? Or Jedis? Oh wait — is “Jedi” the plural? Nicely in that case who’re THEY, and many others. and so forth.
If we ever get something out of Disney/Lucasfilm — a release date, or a trailer, or a poster, or a canonical YA novel, or storm trooper vacuum cleaner or ANY SORT OF VERIFIABLE CLUE as to what this Star Wars factor is all about — possibly we are able to start to piece collectively the reply. For now, it’s going to stay a thriller, wrapped in an enigma, surrounded by an upwelling John Williams theme.
Self-importance Honest, for its half, tried — after which didn’t, as there isn’t a attempt — to get that reply, from everybody from Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy to The Final Jedi director Rian Johnson. (Credit score to the venerable journal for admitting their failure in a tweet on Monday evening, that took guts.)
But it surely was Johnson’s cryptic response that solidified this Final Jedi factor as the best movie-spoiler thriller of 2017:
There you go, simply extra deception and deflection. Typical.
Who is aware of? If Disney ever tells us something about The Final Jedi, possibly we’ll start to piece collectively different questions, like, who is that this Empire that struck again? Will the Jedi ever return? When did the Star Wars happen, and the place?
Hold your eyes peeled for clues, younger padawans.
Endurance you will need to have.
