Director Rian Johnson Hilariously Responds to STAR WARS Fans Pushing For a Remake of THE LAST JEDI
First of all, this is just a bit of Star Wars humor that I think we can all get a kick out of. There's nothing to lash out against here. It's just supposed to be fun. Remember the days when Star Wars was fun!? We should get back to that place.
Anyway, a group of fans got together and launched the Twitter account @RMTheLastJedi to begin a campaign to raise money to develop a "fan remake" of Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I guess they must've have secured the rights from Lucasfilm to do that... right? Sometime's fans can be silly.
Our team of producers is offering to cover the budget for a remake of The Last Jedi in order to save Star Wars. Share this and spread the word to let @RobertIger & @Disney know you want this! This isn't a joke, we're ready to have the convo now! #RemakeTheLastJedi #StarWars— Remake The Last Jedi (@RMTheLastJedi) June 20, 2018
Those tweets about the fan remake went viral and started spreading all over Twitter and I've seen fans supporting them and fan bashing the hell out of them. It ended up getting the attention of Star Wars author Chuck Wendig, actor Seth Rogen, James Gunn, and, even Johnson himself, who had the hilariously perfect response:
Rian Johnson begging to direct the remake... I thought that was funny. If you haven't already, you should check out the @RMTheLastJedi Twitter feed and read their ideas because it's pretty amusing. Some people might actually like the ideas they are pitching. What do you all think? Here are some of the Twitter reactions below:
The remake of The Last Jedi is just going to be a bunch of straight white dudes measuring their light sabers and saying “Actually” for two hours.— OhNoSheTwitnt 🌈 (@OhNoSheTwitnt) June 21, 2018
I'm going to remake The Last Jedi remake and make every character a LADY and have Luke Skywalker marry six porgs in a trenchcoat.— Alicia Lutes (@alicialutes) June 21, 2018
I'd like to formally submit my pitch for the Last Jedi remake to anyone that's listening. It's exactly the same as The Last Jedi except the scene with a shirtless Kylo Ren now has the waistline on his pants six inches higher.— 💀💀💀Jon Moisan 💀💀💀 (@JonMoisan) June 21, 2018
In order to save Star Wars, we are going to remake The Last Jedi with a box of puppets, a packet of googly-eyes and my dad's camcorder. Please give me £300m.— Eddie Bowley (@Eddache_) June 21, 2018

TLJ REMAKE SCRIPT PG 1
EXT. Space, or something. We see Luke Skywalker being cool, because he's like our dad except he actually loves us and is proud of us and would never tell us to get a job even though we don't want to.
LUKE: Girls are smelly and bad.
my last jedi remake is just the same movie except everyone is a porg and only speaks in porg noises and the porgs are replaced with the actual actors making porg noises and super smol and can fly— Samantha (@Arielrocks5) June 21, 2018
