Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Reason for the Color of Luke’s Lightsaber at the End of ‘The Last Jedi’

Published

on

We are entering SPOILER territory here folks. If you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi, then look away!

We have all been wondering exactly why Luke chose to manifest himself on Crait with Anakin’s blue lightsaber in his final duel with Kylo Ren. Heck we have even speculated on our Podcast here before. Now though, Rian Johnson has spilled the beans to IGN, given us the answer as to the reason for Luke having Anakin’s lightsaber in his hands again.

“[Luke] is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo,” Johnson explained. “He knows that Kylo’s Achilles heel is his rage, and so that’s why he kind of makes himself look younger, the way Kylo would’ve last seen him in their confrontation at the temple, and that’s why he decided to bring Kylo’s grandfather’s lightsaber down there — the lightsaber that Kylo screamed at Rey, ‘that’s mine, that belongs to me.’” As far as Johnson’s concerned, Luke believes that Anakin’s lightsaber will have a much more visceral impact on the erstwhile Ben Solo than Luke’s own green blade.

But why did Kylo fall for his uncle’s Force Illusion when he saw Anakin’s lightsaber split in half right in front of him? Because, Johnson pointed out, he didn’t actually see it.

“We as an audience saw that… The truth is, we see the lightsaber split in half — Kylo sees a blinding flash of light and is knocked unconscious, and then Rey takes the lightsaber away before he wakes up,” he said. “So if you really want to dig into it and get an explanation, you can say that he doesn’t 100 percent know what happened to the lightsaber.”

The Last Jedi DVD & Blu-ray Disc Sales Top the Charts in the US

Published

on

Could it be that all of the blowback for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, be coming from a very vocal minority? According to the latest DVD and Blu-ray sales, it seems to be true. The second ranked movie on the list, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, sold only 29% of the totals for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Granted this is was the first week of release, but it seems the “Force” is still strong with Star Wars.

The eighth numbered installment of the “Star Wars” saga and the ninth live-action film in the franchise took in $620 million at the domestic box office and $1.33 billion worldwide — making it the top earner released in 2017. The Rian Johnson-directed film easily took the No. 1 spot on both the NPD VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.
