'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Easter Eggs Examined

Well, according to Hamill, who spoke to Digital Spy, The Force Awakens had a different ending, one that was supposed to show off Luke's powerful mastery of the Force.

Mark Hamill has now revealed that the ending had to be changed, and why they had to change it, which should be obvious if you've seen The Last Jedi.

Boulders floating around the exiled Jedi Master would have been a far cry from the man who disconnected himself from the Force in The Last Jedi.

If there was one thing that The Last Jedi had going for it, it was that it set up a lot.

When we were doing [The Force Awakens], Rian said, "We might have boulders floating to show your Force emanating", so I was led to believe that I still had the Force and it was really strong in me.

It was an important plot point in The Last Jedi that Luke had shut himself off from the Force, so it wouldn't make sense for him to have rocks floating when Rey first meets him. Both directors revealed that they knew about the mistake, and didn't put it in the final cut of The Force Awakens.

Rian Johnson's sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues to divide fans but the sci-fi adventure also continues to bring in significant amounts of cash across the global box office.

"It's interesting that you mentioned it, because I watched the film last night and I thought, hmmm, maybe that's too incidental", Ducsay said.

"You can kind of see how we're developing things concurrently, working on things concurrently, because the list of programs or projects that Jyn goes through in Rogue One wasn't something that was necessarily in the script, those were things that we started to add later in the production process, and at the same time, we were already working on Rian's film", Rayne Roberts explains.

It's not odd, almost every artist who returns to their work - no matter how much time has passed - will discover things they would like to change or do differently.
