Rian Johnson Humorously Responds To 'The Last Jedi' Critics On Twitter

While Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been very successful at the box office having earned over $1 billion and becoming the highest grossing film of 2017. But that didn't change the fact that the film has attracted more than it's fair share of critics since it's release in December. And as to be expected, many Star Wars fans have been extremely vocal about their gripes with Episode VIII, sometimes engaging the creators behind the film on social media.


Writer/director Rian Johnson has had a strong presence online all throughout the production of The Last Jedi, and when faced with some of the various criticisms of his film, Johnson has not kept quiet. Earlier today on Twitter, Rian fired back at the critics in a hilariously epic fashion. First off, he addressed the naysayers regarding Luke's Force-Projection on Crait in a thread of photos:
That thread then lead to some back and forth between Rian and a few fans about Leia's space scene, in which the character used the Force to propel herself back inside the Raddus after its bridge was destroyed. His response to the critics is truly priceless, and it also contains coarse language, so younger reads need not scroll further:

It's nice to see Rian having fun with things like this, and I hope we all can learn to appreciate things like this, regardless of our opinions. (Seriously, if you didn't like the movie, don't be a jerk to Rian or anyone else behind the scenes! That kind of behavior is completely uncalled for.)

Be sure to follow Rian Johnson on Twitter if you don't already!
