Mark Hamill on The Last Jedi’s Broom Boy Ending!
Mark Hamill expresses admiration for Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s ending, particularly what the broom boy’s Force powers mean for Star Wars’ future.
Despite all the abuse unjustly hurled at Star Wars: The Last Jedi, even the most petulant fans agree that the film’s final scene – a young slave inspired by the Resistance Force-pulling his broom to his hand – was amazing. I personally enjoyed it so much that I felt that even if I never saw another Star Wars movie, this would be a fantastic coda. And Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, agrees.
In a recent interview with Games Radar, Hamill was asked his opinion of the scene and had this to share:
“What I love particularly was – and they didn’t have to do this because the movie’s over – all of a sudden you cut to the stable and there’s that little boy, he puts out his hand and the broom comes to him.
It’s so subtle, the first time I saw it I thought he just took it, but if you look he puts his hand out and it moves over for him, implying that yeah, she’s [Rey’s] the last Jedi… until the next Jedi. It’ll go on forever, believe me. Long after both of us are gone they’ll be making these films from here into eternity.”
