Exclusive: Five Years Later, Rian Johnson is “Even More Proud” of Star Wars!

“This is not going to go the way you think,” Luke Skywalker says in Star  Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, which feels especially appropriate.

It was full of surprises along the way, expanding on the themes of The Force Awakens in new and unexpected ways.

In a new interview with Empire, director Rian Johnson reflects on the  fifth anniversary of The Last Jedi and his role in the Skywalker Saga  after a few years have passed.

According to him, the film is about Star Wars and what it means to fans,  rather than simply being a Star Wars film (himself included).

“The ultimate goal was to get to the fundamental power of myth, not to  strip it all away.” Finally, I hope the film demonstrates the impact of  the Star Wars myth on our culture.

According to the director, the film’s final shots “are not  deconstructing the myth of Luke Skywalker, they’re building it, and they  show him embracing it.”
