STAR WARS: FORCE PROJECTION

Luke_Skywalker_on_Crait_Promo_Shot

At the end of The Last Jedi, some fans complained about Luke Skywalker’s “duel” with Kylo Ren because Luke wasn’t even there and Kylo Ren only fought an illusion of Luke. However, as I explained in my previous post, this was another Force power from the old Expanded Universe that Rian Johnson was reintroducing us to through the movies. In many of the old Star Wars books, such as Legacy of the Force, Force users were seen projecting realistic illusions of themselves great distances. The Star Wars fans who were not pleased with the “duel” should read the Legacy of the Force books even though they are not longer Canon. The reason for this is because they will be able to get a better understanding of just what the heck happened on the big screen. Also, Legacy of the Force was about Kylo Ren’s counterpart Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus, which ties it even closer to The Last Jedi. I look forward to what other unorthodox Force powers from the old Expanded Universe we will see in the future.
