When it comes to fans being angry about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there is someone who feels sympathy for you — and that’s Mark Hamill. While speaking to Game Radar he said he understood why fans were so passionate about certain aspects of The Last Jedi.
“I relate to the fans because I’m a fan myself. I understand that they have a deep investment, a sense of ownership, because I do too and the problem is, you just can’t please everyone.”
That doesn’t mean he understood all of the grievances, though, and there was one in particular that didn’t make sense to him.
“I was surprised everyone was so upset that they got rid of Snoke.” He tells me. “From Rian’s point of view, it was a big favourite for [Episode] 9 because he’s not important. It clears the deck to have the conflict between Kylo and Rey without him getting in the way and having to explain if he’s a clone or if he’s related to Palpatine… all that stuff.”
So now even one of the stars of the film is coming out and saying that the reaction over the death of Snoke was a bit much. Does that mean we can stop sending death threats to people? Please? No more death threats.
Summary: Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher, and Adam Driver. It’s out on home release now.
