The Last Jedi easter eggs you missed, from the folks at Lucasfilm

Star Wars 8 Rey with Luke's old blue lightsaber

Fan favorites were killed off, questions from the previous movie were left unanswered, and we got a very passive Luke Skywalker.

The following contains Star Wars: The Last Jedi spoilers. As such, some things have been pointed at that simply don't add up in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and now, the movie's director has provided an explanation and justification for one of the biggest possible issues in it.

For some, this was an obvious hint that Luke was actually using a powerful force projection technique against Kylo, because surely the famed Jedi couldn't be using Anakin's broken saber. Here's what Rian Johnson had to say about it in a recent interview.

"[Luke] is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo", he explained. Rey bringing the lightsaber to a hooded figure, holding it out for them to see, upon which they pull back the hood and reveal that they are none other than Jedi Master Luke Skywalker himself.

Several other hedge funds and other institutional investors also recently added to or reduced their stakes in the company. State Of Tennessee Treasury Department holds 0.02% of its portfolio in Kansas City Southern (NYSE:KSU) for 40,026 shares.

This is certainly an explanation that makes sense, projecting a younger visage to intimidate Kylo and utilising the weapon that would cause him the most distress.

Last year, Mark Hamill set off a flurry of speculation when he told Empire Magazine there was a big, last-minute adjustment to the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that would have changed something about the then-upcoming Last Jedi.

Take the link to see their full, fascinating and detailed analysis - we will be watching this one closely. Many believe he destroyed it after sinking the X-Wing on Ahch-To as he denounced the force, and that the crystal he wears around his neck is actually the Kyber crystal from this lightsaber.

While there's discussion about Easter eggs that don't have much impact on the story of The Last Jedi, there are plenty of interesting details about the development of some key moments and how they came to be.
