In the three months since the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” fans have been very vocal in their opinions about the Rian Johnson-directed eighth chapter in the overall saga.
More than most “Star Wars” films, this one took risks and in the process resulted in some plot holes and a divided fanbase. Before it opened though, Johnson was announced as developing a new “Star Wars” trilogy from scratch.
Now, speaking at SXSW the other week, Johnson revealed he won’t let any backlash affect him or the new trilogy:
“I feel like every Star Wars thing that ever gets made has a big, loud response because Star Wars fans are passionate and that’s what makes them awesome. I don’t think it’s possible if you’re really telling a story you care about and having it come from your heart it’s just not possible to be intellectually processing what everyone else wants. Nor would it be a healthy thing, I don’t think that’s a good way to tell a story.”
The comments come as the film is all set to hit disc this coming week.
