Adam Driver praises ‘The Last Jedi’ as ‘remarkable’ and creates ‘new rules’ in Universe

Adam Driver goes into full hype mode when talking about this year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the eighth film in the core Star Wars franchise.

He has raved about the script, about director Rian Johnson, and now he has one more glowing thing to say. And it has interesting implications about the plot for The Last Jedi.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Driver elaborated on his late 2016 comments when he gushed about Johnson, calling him “a brilliant filmmaker” who “understands the importance of ambiguity and nuance.”

“[W]hat Rian had written was remarkable. He created new rules for the “Star Wars” universe and balanced the familiar and unfamiliar very adeptly while respecting that his audience can handle ambiguity. Which you can see in his previous films. Characters and story are his priority.”

Driver’s statement about “new rules” for the universe is interesting for fans, continuing to refute any thoughts of rehashing The Empire Strikes Back, which to this day stands as the pinnacle of blockbuster trilogy.

The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi revealed a dark and somber mood that already sets it apart from The Force Awakens.
