Star Wars: The Last Jedi - 9 Episode VII Problems It Must Avoid

Lucasfilm, you must complete the training...


The journey to The Last Jedi is now on the home stretch, and about time too, since the mid-season break of Rebels means we have to go a whopping five weeks without any new Star Wars content. Well, content that you don't have to put hundreds of hours/dollars into to enjoy properly, anyway.

Currently, things are looking very positive for The Last Jedi, with it being the only Star Wars film on Lucasfilm's slate to not have a director given the boot, and director Rian Johnson being handed an entire new trilogy before his first Star Wars film has even been released. The Force is strong in this one, apparently.

But despite Johnson seemingly pulling things off so well that he'll be directing at least as many Star Wars films as George Lucas, that's not to say things can't go wrong. Because, to voice an opinion that will likely end in a Force Choke and the words "I find your lack of faith disturbing", Episode VII had some pretty noticeable issues that The Last Jedi really needs to steer clear of.

So as the days wind down to us hearing a proper line of dialogue from Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker for the first time since 1983, let's fill the time by sharing some worries about how things could go wrong.
