Breaking: Rian Johnson Wishes He Would Have Test Screened The Last Jedi

Rian Johnson now has come out saying that he wishes that he could have did a test screening for Star Wars: The Last Jedi before its release(we wish so too).

We all know that Star Wars: The Last Jedi was not well received by fans when it was released back in 2017 and it put a sour taste in may peoples mouths from day one. Johnson recently came out saying that he wanted to do a test screening for the movie before release but the secrecy surrounding the film made that an impossibility. 

Johnson, who's new film "Knives out" just received its home release spoke further about his time working on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Johnson said:

It was like a party in the theater, it was really fun. It was like the first time I was like ‘Oh wow, this actually plays. This is good.’ Which is really nice and that’s something on Star Wars, you can’t test Star Wars movies for a lot of different reasons. I’ve always hated test screening, and when we were making Star Wars, at a certain point in the process you’re like ‘God, I would give my left arm to put this in front of 300 people in Burbank and just see how it plays.’

We all know Disney is very secretive with their upcoming movies, it is not surprising that The Last Jedi did not get a screening before it hit theaters. However, when you are making any movie, especially a movie to the scale of Star Wars you should probably consider sitting down a couple of loyal fans to see what they think of the film before releasing it to the masses. And the aftermath of Disney's decision to not screen The Last Jedi rings true to the sentiment, always screen movies before their release. 

Regardless of how you liked The Last Jedi or not, Johnson is a amazing director and the reception to Knives Out proves that he has a knack for storytelling, and we can't wait to see what he does with Knives Out 2.
