STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Director Says His Luke Skywalker Was "100% Consistent" With The Original Trilogy

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a critical and commercial hit but it divided the fanbase and much of that can be blamed on Rian Johnson's portrayal of Luke Skywalker, right? Well, the director has a response!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi broke box office records and earned acclaim from critics but many fans were divided on the sequel and that led to a surprising amount of backlash. The main problem appears to be the way Luke Skywalker was portrayed and many claim that the character's legacy has been tarnished beyond repair after what writer and director Rian Johnson did. 

Well, the filmmaker is still fielding attacks on social media and when one fan proclaimed that it was "bad storytelling" to make so many changes to Luke in the movie, Johnson was quick to respond:



Burn! 

This is clearly an issue that fans of Star Wars will remain divided on and nothing Johnson says will probably change that at this stage. However, Lucasfilm is clearly happy with the movie Johnson delivered because he's been hired to write and direct an
entire new trilogy set outside the Skywalker Saga. 

There's no word on when that will be released as of right now as it seems Disney is holding off until Episode IX is released before making any decisions. What do you think about the director's remarks? Share your thoughts in the usual place.
