Rian Johnson Speaks Once More About Fan Reactions

Before the Solo movie takes over and will dominate the headlines there is one more article about The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson was interviewed by Flickering Myth for the European disc release of The Last Jedi. And Rian Johnson made a remark about the fan reaction.

The extensive interview with Flickering Myth once more delves into some of the thought processes behind The Last Jedi and what Rian Johnson thinks of the fan reacion to the movie.

When asked how he feels when he looks back on The Last Jedi after all these months, Rian Johnson has this to say:
“I feel fantastic. It has been so much fun seeing the fans’ reaction to it and seeing the depth that people have been diving into it with. It’s so nice that it’s going to be out on home video because I’ve got a lot of feedback, especially recently, from folks seeing it for a second or third time or even more. Especially folks who, when they first saw it, weren’t quite sure what to make of it, or had stuff they weren’t sure about with it or just flat out didn’t like it and have now revisited it.”

When asked if he knew that some of the things he would do in the movie would be polarizing, Rian Johnson replies:
“But,  for me, I always felt very confident that the decisions we made in the movie were coming from the right place and were the right decisions that honoured the characters and honoured the story. So I guess in my head, I always felt that even if for some folks it wasn’t what they expected and they were going to recoil from it a little bit, I had this weird confidence that even those folks over the long haul, once the dust settles, they will take a look at it again and see where it’s coming from. But maybe they will always hate it.” [laughs]

And then the interviewer has the following question: One of the things that surprised a lot of people about this film is the way you approached some of the mysteries J.J. created in the previous film. I believe the term is that there were a lot of “fanboy tears” about what you decided to do…
Rian Johnson: [laughs] “Delicious fanboy tears!

Did your opinion about The Last Jedi change when you saw it on Blu-Ray / DVD? Do you agree that the decisions made in the movie were coming from the right place? And do you think Rian Johnson drinks delicious fanboy tears from a Star Wars mug before he goes to sleep?

The interview touches many other points as well. You can find the full interview on Flickering Myth.
