  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) remains the most controversial film in the Star Wars franchise, as well as the most divisive film in the history of contemporary cinema.
  • Many fans displeased with the film criticised the choices made by writer/director Rian Johnson, including the overuse of humour, altering space science and character arcs already established in canon, various plot twists, and a vastly different characterisation of Luke Skywalker, which actor Mark Hamill still disagrees with.
