Fan notices a pretty big error in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

It’s basically impossible for a movie to sidestep all on-screen mistakes—some, especially continuity errors, are just a given. But one fan recently noticed a pretty major mistake in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, one that was apparently (and hastily) “corrected” through some inventive editing prior to the film’s release. Check it out below.

As seen in the below clip and reported by Comicbook.com, a Last Jedi scene where Rey and Kylo Ren are battling some Praetorian guards had one viewer doing a double take. A guard starts to fight against Rey with two blades, but when she goes to take him down, he only has one. Why? Well, it looks like he could’ve easily just stabbed Rey in the back, effectively ending the movie, so some apparent editing takes the second blade away from the guard mid-move. Exciting!

Thanks to The Last Jedi’s recent home release, eagled-eyed Star Wars buffs are finally able to scrutinize the movie in detail, leading to editing observations like this. Just read the original fan’s hilarious tweet about the fight-scene slip:

Choreographer: "but sir, as cool as it may look, if the red guard has two knives he could just stab Rey in the back"

Director: We'll just edit one out half way through the move, no one will notice.

FX Guy: Done.

Genius. Watch it here:

Has director Rian Johnson seen this yet? Earlier this year, he told filmcast that he stands by every decision he made on The Last Jedi, and takes fan criticism with a grain of salt.

“There’s nothing I’ve read or seen that’s made me think, ‘Oh god, I did kind of mess that up, I would’ve done that differently if I could go back,'” he said. “I still genuinely believe in all the decisions I’ve made.”
