Star Wars: The Last Jedi is by far the most divisive Star Wars film to date and it’s no surprise that some fans were left disappointed by the film’s conclusion. Spoilers ahead! There is much to be said about the film’s bold risks in regards to its narrative, particularly its deviation from the atypical Star Wars conventions. A particular scene that stood out would be the final shot in the film.
Mark Hamill discusses his thoughts on the final shot of the film in which one of the kids who helped Rey and Finn escape in Canto Bight picks up a broom using the force and gazes into space. In an interview with Games Radar, he discusses the significance of the scene to the franchise:
“The first time I saw it I thought he just took it, but if you look he puts his hand out and it moves over for him, implying that yeah, she’s (Rey’s) the last jedi… until the next jedi. It’ll go on forever, believe me.”
Based on Hamill’s statement, we can deduce that The Force is strong in the kid. This further solidifies Rey’s lack of significant familial background, implying the nature of the force as not something hereditary.
Themes of cultural preservation, hope and legacy were always present in previous Star Wars films and despite all that is said about The Last Jedi, it very much carries the heart and soul associated with the saga albeit with a different structure.
