Star Wars: The Last Jedi - 9 Major Blunders Fans Can't Ignore

1. Flying Leia

Easily the most laughable and "meme-able" scene in the entire film, the affectionally labelled, "Flying Leia scene" has turned into a running joke.

Yes, it's "cool" to see Leia demonstrate usage of the Force (we already knew she was Force-sensitive thanks to hearing Luke's cries in Empire, or from being told of "that power" in Return), but the literal visual of Leia flying through space simply didn't, well, fly.

You can pinpoint the second it falls apart too - it's the cut to a wider angle as she slowly starts soaring forward. A very similar shot was also in Mary Poppins, and it brings about comparisons that simply have no place in a scene that's supposed to connote an unprecedented display of power.
