At the end of the film (are we still doing spoiler warnings?) we learn that the Luke Skywalker that we've been seeing on the surface of Crait isn't actually there, but instead a sort of projection created by Luke on Ahch-To.

The Last Jedi is marching on at the global box office and is still dividing fans between those that loved it and those that are straight up offended by it.

The latest installment in the Star Wars series has recently passed a Marvel Cinematic Universe heavy-hitter by knocking Iron Man 3 out of its #12 spot on the list of highest-grossing movies of all time. Rian Johnson ended up being tagged in the conversation, and Johnson did end up chiming in on the topic, where he pointed out that really none of the Force abilities are ever specifically called out prior to being seen on screen.

Explaining that Luke "is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo", Johnson went on to describe why blue makes for a stronger, more direct emotional appeal to the sensibilities of Kylo Ren - the Darth Vader-obsessed grandson of Anakin Skywalker. The Last Jedi opened to $28.7 million this weekend, falling short of both Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's $30 million and The Force Awakens' $52 million. "He 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.'" As far as Johnson's concerned, Luke believes that Anakin's lightsaber will have a much more visceral impact on the erstwhile Ben Solo than Luke's own green blade.

However, with China being one of the last major markets for the film to debut, it is the last big opportunity to squeeze every dollar out of audiences.

"And they said, "No, we caught that and we worked it all out". According to Rian Johnson, Kylo didn't know it was destroyed.
