It’s been years since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, however, detractors continue to make jabs at the decisive Star Wars sequel trilogy entry as fans wait for the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Posts against the film have also increased the past two weeks as reports regarding the next three Star Wars film have been inciting rumors that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s films might actually be cancelled by Lucasfilm.

Johnson has been actively defending The Last Jedi on social media while haters have been jabbing at the film. One fan tagged the director hoping to set up a debate about Snoke and Kylo Ren. Another Twitter user reached out to the filmmaker, using a line spoken by Yoda in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back about the future being difficult to see.

Johnson has responded to Tweet, agreeing that Snoke shares the same overconfidence as Palpatine.

Check it out the post down below:

This is just one of Johnson’s many conversations with fans regarding Star Wars and The Last Jedi. It might seem exhausting dealing with such vocal detractors, but Johnson tries his best to respond to fans when they have questions about his film and about Star Wars in general.

Earlier this month, one fan expressed their frustration over Snoke bing killed before getting any sort of backstory from The Last Jedi. Johnson was quick to point out that George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy did the same thing, killing Palpatine before explaining his origin.
