There is a point in every "Star Wars" movie where just when you think you know what is going on, the writers twist the plot in a different direction. Star Wars returned to the big screen after a 10-year hiatus and it opened with a bang. We've seen the reluctant teacher/keen pupil relationship far too many times in fantasy films (take Luke and Yoda for example), but The Last Jedi swiftly handles this in quick summaries, and moves on to its own narrative. The film remained in 4,232 locations this week, and has grossed over $365M domestically.

In an interview that went viral on Thursday but was filmed during the movie's recent press junket, Mark Hamill explained his initial problem with director Rian Johnson's screenplay and how Luke Skywalker was portrayed in the film. "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" was directed by Jake Kasdan, working off a screenplay written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.

And when he finally got the chance to catch up on them, "it was awesome", he said. Luke Skywalker's adventures on Dagobah in The Empire Strikes back were inspired by the Russian/Japanese film Dersu Uzala.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is truly a movie you shouldn't miss. So I am out, and I sense from the box office so are a lot of people. As a result, Johnson has made Star Wars fresh and new.

Warning! The following article contains major spoilers from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The Last Jedi brought in $220 million in North America during its opening weekend on December 15, on the higher end of expectations, and marked the second-largest domestic opening ever behind its predecessor's $247 million in 2015. In it a band of terrorists, seduced by the dark side of the force, do battle against a group of humans hoping to save humanity and freedom for all beings in the galaxy. In The Last Jedi, she displays a strength that left most viewers stunned, but caused plenty more Star Wars loyals to cry out in confusion.

Aside from this unusual rant that has a point but is more spoof in nature than anything, The Last Jedi raises a lot of questions but it's still something different enough that it's taken the story in a different direction.

The prequels, no matter how much you like or dislike them, also delivered on this score.

I'll be excited to see what happens with Episode IX, but for now I can't wait to go see The Last Jedi again!
