John Williams Will Score Star Wars: Episode IX

John Williams Will Score Star Wars: Episode IX

In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

"When I read [The Last Jedi] before [The Force Awakens] came out, I said 'what?!" and called JJ [Abrams] or Rian [Johnson] to say, 'Are you guys aware of this?

The following contains Star Wars: The Last Jedi spoilers. Have you seen a cut?

Scenes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi were filmed in some of the most spectacular spotts Ireland's western coastline, from the northern-most point in County Donegal to the cliffs and headlands of Counties Clare, Cork and Kerry.

The crew also explains the various tiny details that should make the audience realize that Luke isn't really fighting Kylo Ren because he's not there in physical form. He draws his lightsaber, and Luke Skywalker does the same.

That's Anakin's blue lightsaber; the one Rey's been carrying around; the one that, if Kylo had only stopped and thought about it for a second, he'd recall he'd just shattered himself in his fight with Rey.

Rian Johnson has explained why it was that Luke used a blue lightsaber in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and not his green one.

"[Luke] 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 made a decision to bring Kylo's grandfather's lightsaber down there - the lightsaber that Kylo screamed at Rey, "that's mine, that belongs to me'".

On the references to other scores in The Last Jedi: "When we see Rey, we want to hear Rey's theme", Williams says.

Of course Kylo Ren isn't confused by the presence of his grandfather's lightsaber. It can be found inside Luke Skywalker's (Mark Hamill) hut on Ahch-To.

Odds are Rian Johnson's explanation either wasn't necessary or it wasn't enough. Hopefully this puts the nail in the coffin of at least one complaint about The Last Jedi, though there are undoubtedly plenty of others that won't go away no matter what Rian Johnson or anyone else has to say.
