Rian Johnson recently did an in-depth interview with GQ about some of his most iconic movies and his comments about them last jedi They’re sure to stir up the scum cell and villains that Star Wars fans can be into at times. Johnson spoke about how Star Wars inherently contains elements of comic films, saying “Anyone who thinks that a little goofy humor has no place in the Star Wars universe, I don’t know if they’ve seen Return of the Jedi.” He specifically refers to the scene where they pretend Chewbacca is a prisoner who escaped from the Death Star, saying, “The little Imperial droid comes, Chewbacca roars, and the droid goes, like a frightened dog, [screeching]. “
If you’re a Star Wars fan, it’s hard to disagree with Rian Johnson here. There is plenty of comedy in the beloved original trilogy as well as the newer TV shows like The Mandalorian. If the movie was anything but tough and serious, it certainly wouldn’t feel like the quintessential Star Wars movie, with the comedy helping to mitigate some of the rough moments.
Of course, Johnson is fighting an uphill battle here, as his Star Wars movie is one of the most divisive films ever made, especially because of the comedic parts in the movie. Some also complained about the comedy in last jediMost of them had more issues with how to handle Luke’s character rather than the funny parts. Of course, there are many people who loved the movie, but many more who hated it.
for last jedi, There are not many moderators for the masses. While almost everyone thinks The Force Awakens It was a promising start to the new Star Wars trilogy and Celestial Rise It was a disastrous end. last jedi He is either loved for subverting expectations or reviled for the same reason. Elements of the Star Wars comics tend to be a minor concern in discussion, but the same can be said for most of the franchises Disney has acquired.
if something happens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi It has comedic elements that fit the universe really well. The conversation between a nervous General Hux and Oscar Poe’s Poe Dameron is perfect for both characters and Yoda laughing at burning ancient Jedi texts. Plus, who really could still be mad at a grinning Mark Hamill drinking blue milk straight from the (disgusting) source?
If Star Wars completely abandons comics, fans will miss out on great scenes like the scuffle of Boy Scouts (played by Jason Sudeikis and Adam Pally) in The Mandalorian. In addition, there are as many children who watch Star Wars as adults. You have to keep in mind that kids will want some gentle humor and goofiness mixed with characters rebelling against authoritarian regimes.
There are also Star Wars projects like Andor That keeps the comedy to a minimum, so there’s clearly room for both in the ever-expanding galaxy far, far away. With the number of shows Disney will release, there is sure to be a Star Wars movie or TV show to suit everyone’s taste. Of course, there will always be subsections for such a huge fan who will cringe at the new projects.
One thing you can always count on with Star Wars – you can’t please every fan, even when there’s comics involved. There will always be serious projects, comedy projects, and projects that mix in between. Whether you agree with Rian Johnson or not, the franchise will continue regardless and it won’t always make everyone happy.
