For example, what's up with the Knights of Ren, and where were they in The Last Jedi?

The Force Awakens, we got a teaser for Kylo Ren's team of Sith wannabes, the Knights of Ren.

Ironically, Poe's death means that his own heroics in Last Jedi's finale, where he leads the remaining Resistance fighters to escape, have to be scrubbed out of the remake along with the scenes of female bravery.

What more can we say about "Star Wars: The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit"?

When's it gonna come out that the entire cast of The Last Jedi has regular sleepovers at Rian Johnson's house? "There literally was just no room for another element", Johnson said in an Empire podcast. I guess I could've used them in place of the Praetorian guards, but then it would feel like wasting them because I knew all those guards had to die pretty quickly. And if Kylo had some kind of connection to them, it would've added a complication that wouldn't have helped the scene...

Orthodox Christians of Kyrgyzstan take dip in icy water for the Epiphany
According to the gospel, Jesus Christ was baptized in the water of the Jordan River by John the Baptist. Putin a historic fourth term, the 41-year-old Opposition leader and anti-corruption campaigner said.

"There are so many screens now; kids aren't just at the movies", Johnson said. In fact, Disney and Lucasfilm already started prequels with 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", which was chronologically set right before "A New Hope".

Another interesting plot detail from The Last Jedi revolved around Kylo Ren's treatment of Supreme Leader Snoke.

Although the film has received criticism about more than just Luke's change in personality, Joseph chose to focus his writing exclusively on the iconic character "in the interest of brevity".

"I like Snoke as a character - as Andy Serkis plays him, he's delicious. Re-meeting our beloved protagonist decades after we last saw him, only to learn that the passing years have changed some of his most fundamental qualities, I'll admit, it's nearly hard to see", Gordon-Levitt wrote.

Well, maybe J.J. Abrams will give us some answers with Episode IX. Today, with so many different types of Star Wars merchandise competing for fans' money, individual companies may not find the license rewarding enough to renew the following year - as sales have declined, so has the number of companies releasing Star Wars products.
