Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker maakt komaf met tal van concepten die in Rian Johnson The Last Jedi werden geïntroduceerd. Terwijl de nieuwe film voor velen een teleurstelling blijkt te zijn, is op Twitter een golf van liefde ontstaan voor zijn voorganger.
Onder de hashtag #thankyourianjohnson tweetten tal van Star Wars-fans hoezeer ze The Last Jedi op prijs stellen. Johnson reageerde door hen op zijn beurt te bedanken.
“Ik heb oneindig veel bewondering voor jullie passie, creativiteit, woede, vreugde, positiviteit, enthousiasme, engagement en liefde. Jullie zijn de beste,” schreef hij.
Endlessly awed by your passion, creativity, anger, joy, positivity, excitement, engagement and love. You continuously defy every cynical narrative. You’re the best. #thankyoustarwarsfans

#thankyourianjohnson for giving me a Luke Skywalker who's been through some shit. Being a hero isn't easy and carrying the weight of the future is hard for anyone. Luke loses his way and finds his way back. It's a journey so many with depression fight and it matters.

#thankyourianjohnson for telling a story women relate to. I felt so heard, so respected, so seen by TLJ. From Rey, to Rose, to Holdo, to Leia, women were there and they felt real. Tlj made me feel like Star Wars was for me, for women. Thank you @rianjohnson

#thankyourianjohnson for including Carrie Fisher in your writing on The Last Jedi, for always placing women front and center and in every single group shot frame in a Star Wars movie, for understanding our needs and caring

The Last Jedi was the last film I shared with my grandfather. He lived far away for most of my life, we weren’t close, but we reconnected in our love for Star Wars. I can’t say how much it helped when he passed. #ThankYouRianJohnson for showing me “no one is ever really gone”.
