The way Luke actually died. For no fucking reason. At all.
Not. Fucking. Cool. Rian.
My nephew and I were discussing this…why DID he die? Did he use up all his life force when he astral projected? I mean, WTF?
I’m sure Official Lucasfilm product holds some convoluted explanation, but the real reason he died is because of an agenda that is best explained by Kylo Ren - “Kill the Past” - Make Han and Luke abandon their responsibilities and have Leia be the only responsible one even though that whole narrative goes against everything we know about Luke and Han. Too bad Carrie Fisher’s poor life choices won’t allow that narrative to further play out. I feel bad for Mark, he actually took care of himself and wanted to deliver something the fans would love - and they gave him…this…
The movie is a bit like if Zac Snyder had made a Star Wars film - well not as extreme, but Johnson and Snyder are from the same school of thought. Can you imagine? Zac is all about deconstructing beloved characters and narratives the fans enjoy and turning all that “past” stuff on its head - “Kill the Past” - just like his DC films. It would’ve been a little more extreme than what we got, but not much. Honestly, I’m so sick and tired of this mindset that seems to permeate Hollywood. At least these types haven’t gotten ahold of Marvel…yet.
