Williams will also provide the theme for "Solo", the next stand-alone Star Wars film that will be released in May.

Mark Hamill (himself) has been singing the praises of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way and Skellig Michael, which both have starring roles in billion dollar blockbusters Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Writer and director Rian Johnson recently revealed his justifications for the scene to IGN. Rian Johnson ended up being tagged in the conversation, and Johnson did end up chiming in on the topic, where he pointed out that really none of the Force abilities are ever specifically called out prior to being seen on screen. I'll take my answer off air. I carried it around and used it for nothing except writing the script.

In the Tourism Ireland promo, Hamill says: "To come back to Ireland was a great treat for all of us, because the beauty of that country is unmatched".

The Luke Skywalker we see at the beginning of The Last Jedi has rejected the Force, so to have him showing off one of two things he learned from Yoda (the other: backflips) would have changed the movie entirely. "We hope that these references make sense to the fans and make the aural connections that we want them to have". We didn't know the Force let you shoot lightning out of your fingertips until we saw the Emperor do it.

For some, this was an obvious hint that Luke was actually using a powerful force projection technique against Kylo, because surely the famed Jedi couldn't be using Anakin's broken saber.

There's an argument to be made that Luke's projection is just a major enhancement of a previously seen Force ability.

Odds are Rian Johnson's explanation either wasn't necessary or it wasn't enough. Not original trilogy young mind you, but with a well-kept beard, no gray hairs, and a traditional Jedi outfit as opposed to his worn down space parka.
