There is a war brewing in a galaxy far, far away as the writer of ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order‘ doesn’t mix words when he shares what didn’t work for him in Rian Johnson‘s ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi.’ Chris Avellone has built up a huge fanbase from his work on writing ‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic’ and the most recent game from Respawn Entertainment and EA. Recently, he was asked how he felt about the penultimate film in The Skywalker Saga, and like many, he didn’t enjoy it.
When it comes to what Avellone felt was the biggest flaw of the movie:
“I thought that portrayal of Luke Skywalker was very weak. I thought they gave him a scapegoat role that wasn’t merited and didn’t fit with his character, in my opinion. I like the fact that they were playing around with it, but at the same time, I didn’t like the execution, and I thought it could have been handled a lot better or differently.”
It wasn’t just how Luke Skywalker was portrayed that got to the writer, though, and the following pieces are what I can fully agree with:
“I also thought it was a case of comedy goes too far, side characters and massive detour plots were rapidly introduced… I liked what they were trying to do, I just didn’t like how it was executed.”
I’m pretty sure he is referring to Canto Bight which was ridiculous when pairing it with the slowest high-speed space chase of all time.
Fans either love or hate what went wrong in the eighth installment of the saga and while I don’t entirely agree with his assessment of Skywalker, I can get behind everything else Avellone thinks about the film.
