    farce of the entire Star Wars canon, for others a great, emancipated sci-fi movie. I do not blame The Last Jedi for offering strong female characters. Actually, Star Wars has always done that. I reproach the film for not understanding its own purpose, the heroic journey. I reproach the film that its plot does not make any sense at all. The time-frame of "Force Awakens" and "The Last Jedi" does not even last a week. During this time, we get to know a half-dozen new characters. None of them is particularly

Hope is a central theme in the film, as it is used as a political tool of the Resistance and constructed as a threat to the ability of the Empire to maintain control (Johnson 2017). In this paper I will demonstrate that hope as a political tool, especially as it is employed in The Last Jedi, can be used to transcend
