We Saw "The Last Jedi" And We Have QUESTIONS

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.

Posted on

Hello. We're Crystal and Brian, and we're both huge NERDS! And one thing we love is to geek out over Star Wars. After we both saw The Last Jedi we were left with a FEW questions we want answers to.

1. Who the fuck was Snoke, anyway?

LucasFilm

In The Force Awakens, Snoke was a pretty mysterious character with no backstory. The Last Jedi didn't give us any more answers as to who he was. How is he so strong with the Force and how did he meet Ben Solo?

3. What the heck is connecting Kylo Ren and Rey, then, after Snoke died?

LucasFilm

Snoke explained that he was the one who infiltrated Kylo's mind and connected him to Rey. But after Snoke is killed, Kylo and Rey still have the connection.

5. Why did Rey only see herself in the weird hall of mirrors/reflecting thing?

LucasFilm

Could it be that Rey only sees herself because she has no parents and is a Force baby created to balance out Kylo Ren?

8. Clearly Leia uses Jedi powers to survive the attack on the Raddus, but how does she know how to use the Force in that way?

LucasFilm

Did Luke teach her how to harness the power of the Force? Did she have some sort of training post-Return of the Jedi?

9. And after she used the Force to get back into the ship nobody onboard seemed surprised. Had she used the Force in that way before?

LucasFilm

Obviously, they know she is Force-sensitive. (Side note: Also, we're thinking that maybe there were plans to have this question answered in the next film.)

10. Where is Luke’s green lightsaber that he constructed after Empire?

LucasFilm

Did he throw it away after almost killing Kylo or is it hidden somewhere? Did he get rid of it in a bid to truly walk away from being a Jedi?

11. And why, when he Force-projected himself, did he choose to be seen with his blue lightsaber (which at that point was broken by Rey and Kylo anyway)?

12. Where the hell are the Knights of Ren?

LucasFilm

We haven't heard anything about them being killed off. Also, like Snoke, we got no more backstory about them. Are they waiting for Snoke and Kylo to call them back?

14. Why was Vice Admiral Holdo's escape plan kept secret from almost everyone? Wouldn’t it have been easier to just let Poe know the plan?

15. What is this “camera” that Maz is using that tracks/follows her as she’s running around dealing with union disputes while talking to Poe/Finn/Rose?

LucasFilm

Also, why did she not just tell them the name of the code-breaker? Clearly she knew him (since she implied they had sex).

17. I think it is safe to assume that Luke will be a Force ghost, and obviously Rey will see him. But will he also appear to Ben/Kylo as he said he would?

LucasFilm

And will Rey be able to see Yoda, since she heard his and Obi-Wan's voices before in The Force Awakens?

19. And finally, will the next movie, Episode IX, take place several years later?

LucasFilm

The movie did leave off with the Resistance being all but destroyed. So it would take several years for the Resistance to rebuild and be able take on the First Order again. Also, that could be a way to address Carrie Fisher's death.
