I don’t know what you’re getting at. To be honest this discussion belongs in the Last Jedi spoilers thread.

I hope you feel better about yourself knowing you recked some people who liked a movie you didn’t. I’m pretty certain that that’s the widely accepted interpretation, but go on. Keep feeling special, they’re the wrong ones. You’ve earned it.

If that’s what the movie was going for, the message is muddled at best. Luke shows up as a projection, using a projection of the saber he rejected at the beginning of the film. Furthermore, it doesn’t really emphasize his acceptance of the sword. I think it could have been powerful if he had a quiet moment of finally accepting his destiny and his father’s sword. But everything is just a projection, plus Rey and Ben destroyed the real sword.

I think that’s a fine interpretation, but if it was intended as such it’s kind of half-baked, like many things in this movie. That said, I would rather have the symbolism of his father’s sword than have it be replaced with his green saber for nit-picky fans who are overly-obsessed with Star Wars internal logic and continuity.
