Star Wars: The Last Jedi (or The Last Jedi in English) was heavily criticized when it was released, to the point of being considered by some fans as the worst Star Wars ever made. George Lucas himself would not have liked the film. The episode denotes the rest of the Star Wars saga with very "Marvel" humor and an action-oriented dynamic. Despite this, many questions remain unanswered about this second part. In particular, the scene of mirrors, where Rey decides to descend into the cave of Ahch-To against the will of Luke Skywalker . Rian Johnson, director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, explained the intentions behind adding this scene.

Rey and the Cave of Mirrors, the most interpretable scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
This scene takes place on the planet Ahch-To, birthplace of the Jedi Order, where Rey takes his Jedi teaching from Luke Skywalker. At one point, Rey and Luke stumble upon this cave and Luke reveals to Rey that it contains the dark side of the Force. . But Rey will be inexorably drawn to this cave and will eventually be tempted. It is then that this scene of mirrors takes place, where Rey will see her multiple reflections.
This scene asks a lot of questions, and it would be voluntary, according to its director Rian Johnson. In his opinion, debate is a good thing and should be encouraged. “I feel like people care deeply about Star Wars, and each person has a slightly different take on the saga. […] It's part of the passion to be a Star Wars fan, ”he said.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson wanted to draw a parallel with Luke Skywalker in the Empire Strikes Back
This scene is the source of many debates among fans of Star Wars, and has a lot of gray areas. In particular, it leaves room for a subjective interpretation, which accentuates the disagreements between the fans. According to Rian Johnson, the goal was to draw a parallel between this scene and that of Luke Skywalker in the Empire Strikes Back , where Master Yoda sends him to a cave to face the dark side on the planet Dagobah. Scene where he crosses the road of a "fake" Darth Vader, whom he beheads before seeing his own face under the mask of the Sith Lord.
The similarities between the two situations are indeed numerous. It would therefore be a form of introspective test for Rey, in order to find answers about his role and the meaning of his existence . The director does not give more details, in order to leave an element of interpretation in the meaning of this scene.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will therefore keep a great deal of mystery. Despite the many criticisms of this film, Disney has since raised the bar with fans with The Mandalorian, in particular. Hopefully themany productions Upcoming Star Wars will continue to satisfy audiences .
