Rian Johnson recontextualizes the ending of The Last Jedi as a Star Wars Viking burial

Rian Johnson is currently riding high on the success of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The Elon Musk-impaling sequel has become a huge hit for Netflix this holiday season, no doubt making them feel like the $469 million they spent to back it up glass onion and the coming knife out 3 was money well spent. Although the filmmaker is now known for his mysterious murders, his heart always seems to remain in a galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues to provide endless fan debate, and there’s still a chance he’ll return to Lucasfilm to make his own trilogy. Now in an interview with The Atlanticdid he reflect on the film’s ending and contextualize it as a comment on working with a huge ongoing franchise:

“Regarding the war of stars movie I did I tried to give it a hell of an ending. I love endings so much that I even tried to end the middle chapter of the trilogy.

A good ending that recontextualizes everything that came before it and makes it a beautiful object in its own right – that’s what makes a movie a movie. It feels like there’s less and less of it. This whole toxic idea of ​​creation [intellectual property] has completely seeped into the bedrock of storytelling. Everyone just thinks: How do we milk it further? I love an ending where you burn the viking boat in the sea.”

Johnson’s desire to burn everything down (also featured heavily in glass onion) may not have made him so popular war of stars fans although we loved it The Last Jedi and wish The Rise of Skywalker built on it instead of frantically going back and forth on almost every plot point.

Still, we can somewhat sympathize with fans who didn’t necessarily want to see it war of stars burn to the ground. If Johnson ever gets to do his own trilogy, we suspect it will be received much more warmly, as in hindsight he might not have been the best choice for the middle entry of three films.

Johnson has already started the preparatory work knife out 3scheduled to land in late 2024. Additionally, it sounds like Kathleen Kennedy’s door is staying open for him, so fingers crossed that his war of stars The trilogy is finally in production.
