John Williams Wants To Score Star Wars: Episode IX

The latest entry into the Star Wars saga hit theaters in mid December 2017 and left fans divided. Regardless of what faults the film may have, however, The Last Jedi is a box office success the world over. Rey bringing the lightsaber to a hooded figure, holding it out for them to see, upon which they pull back the hood and reveal that they are none other than Jedi Master Luke Skywalker himself.

Everyone's mileage may vary when it comes to Star Wars VIII, but numerous attacks levied against the film don't hold much weight when compared to the previous films. Though it was revealed that the Jedi Master had used to force to project his image to his nephew in a successful attempt to buy his allies time to escape, many wondered why Luke chose to depict himself wielding Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber.

That actually makes a good deal of sense. So, why did Luke use the blue lightsaber instead of his green lightsaber?

The script for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was undoubtedly one of the closest-guarded secrets in Hollywood previous year, and director Rian Johnson employed a fairly simple tactic to prevent spoilers for the film leaking out. But this movie I've seen now a couple times with an audience. There are some moments from Admiral Holdo's aforementioned lightspeed attack, some new shots of Benicio del Toro as DJ, and most importantly, the final battle between Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker. Details about the new trilogy are sparse, but it will reportedly chronicle "new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored", according to The Verge. That doesn't mean you're going to agree with the choices he made artistically and narratively, but he made them consciously. The Last Jedi turned out to be a great movie, much darker than the first episode and also quite divisive. We certainly can't accuse him of making lazy mistakes at this point.
