Star Wars 8 Rey with Luke's old blue lightsaber

Initially, this just seems like a small detail, but when the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi are considered, it changes things pretty drastically. In an interview with IGN, director Rian Johnson discussed Luke's decision and explained why Kylo Ren would not have recognized the weapon as the lightsaber that had been destroyed earlier.

Every Star Wars movie has had one epic moment focusing on a hand-to-hand battle between various characters.

The Last Jedi begins by depicting Luke Skywalker as a crusty old hermit with blue milk in his beard, toward the end of the film we see Luke seemingly appear as his younger self as he faces down Kylo Ren on the surface of Crait.

"When I read [The Last Jedi] before [The Force Awakens] came out, I said "what?!' and called JJ or Rian Johnson to say, 'Are you guys aware of this?"

Though I admittedly thought that the only theme I liked from Force Awakens was March of the Resistance, I've recently discovered that there is actually a very clever way in which Williams wrote Rey's theme.

Sets first-year arb record
He's in the first year of arbitration and has a career 2.94 ERA, 1.098 WHIP and finished third in the NL Cy Young voting in 2016. Among that group is third baseman, who could threaten Ryan Howard's first-year arbitration record salary of $10 million.

It's a fair point. "Is there floating boulders?' And they said, 'No, we caught that and we worked it all out'".

"We as an audience saw that. We hope that these references make sense to the fans and make the aural connections that we want them to have".

We don't know much else about "Episode IX". If a Jedi can make somebody hear something that isn't there, as Obi-Wan does while shutting down the tractor beam in the first film, can a Jedi also make somebody see something that isn't there? This would certainly be taking the idea to an extreme, but we're certainly led to believe that what Luke does is extreme.

In today's most obvious news, composer John Williams confirmed to Variety that he will score the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode IX".

Rian Johnson responded to a Twitter exchange between Bungie project leader Mark Noseworthy and /Film head Peter Sciretta.
