Kelly Marie Tran is Rose and John Boyega is Finn in THE LAST JEDI.

This may be a case of art imitating life. Whenever there is a Russian character in a film, chances are audiences are going to root against them considering that they almost always play a villain. But in reality, they are in the news for a variety of reasons from political interference to technological hacking.

And now it seems, at least according to a new study, they’ve gone one step further by trolling Star Wars: The Last Jedi. More on the story below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Starring Daisy Ridley

What Rian Johnson did for Star Wars in The Last Jedi was very interesting. It challenged what we knew about the universe, but it also rubbed people the wrong way. Not only that, but it offered a very polarizing answer to one of the trilogy’s biggest questions: who are Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) parents.

Now we are learning that The Force Awakens and Episode IX director J.J. Abrams had a much different plan for who Rey’s parents are. Hit the jump to see how Johnson’s creative decisions may have hurt Episode IX. Spoilers below if you’re not caught up.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Finn vs Captain Phasma

The joys of watching a deleted scene are imagining how it could have fit into the film in the first place. Some of the scenes are cut out because of the film’s runtime. Other times they are necessary because of pacing. So there will be plenty of time to figure out why certain scenes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi ended up on the cutting room floor.

While deleted scenes almost seem like a necessary addition to any DVD, there is one deleted scene from The Last Jedi involving Finn (John Boyega) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) that will have fans questioning why it was cut out and chosen over the scene that made the final theatrical cut. Check it out below, but beware of spoilers ahead.

Rian Johnson Explains Knights Of Ren Absence and “New” Jedi Powers In ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Kylo Ren

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has been taking a lot of heat for the creative liberties he took in the sequel. The film, which took place directly after The Force Awakens didn’t have the narrative luxury some of the other film have, with some sequels having months or years long gaps. This may explain why the Knights of Ren didn’t make an appearance in The Last Jedi. But it doesn’t explain how Johnson came to the decision to have Luke Skywalker Force Project himself from across the galaxy to confront his nephew, Kylo Ren, on the mining planet of Crait.

But the director is now taking the opportunity to explain some of those decisions. One comes down to being unable to due to screen time, while the other, he had to go back to the old “Jedi Texts” to prove such powers exist. Check them all out below.

Mike Lee’s Top 10 Favorite Movies Of 2017

Movies of 2017 top ten header

To say that 2017 was an incredible year for films would be a vast understatement. The year was full of extraordinary films ranging from the typical blockbuster tentpoles like Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Wonder Woman to the indie darlings like The Big Sick and Lady Bird. And the best thing about it, a lot of these movies come from first-time directors, women, and veterans like Jordan Peele, Patty Jenkins, Greta Gerwig, and Rian Johnson. It’s not easy to see all of the films that are released within the one calendar year, but I make sure I damn well try to see as much as I can, and 2017 was no different. I went out to see over 100 films, and to narrow it down to 10 best within the field of exceptional titles that were released was hard. While best is subjective, I tried to narrow it down to the 10 films that meant the most to me that I enjoyed thoroughly.

So, you’ll find the 10 of my favorite movies of 2017 that I could not stop thinking about, along with a few honorable mentions. Check them all out here below.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Cast On What Carrie Fisher and Leia Means To Them

Rian Johnson Directing Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a major hit over the weekend, earning over $220 million in the domestic box office. While the film is polarizing, no one can deny the profound impact that Carrie Fisher and her character of Princess Leia had on the immensely popular franchise. Having gone from princess to general, Fisher carved her own mark and defined what it means to be a badass woman. A notion that she had carried with her until her death, and one that has inspired not only her co-stars, but almost every woman on earth.

We had a chance to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the female cast of The Last Jedi about what it meant to them to star alongside Fisher and what they learned from her during the production of the film. Check out what they had to say here below.
