Long before he got to determine the fates of beloved characters in the Star Wars galaxy, writer/director Rian Johnson made a name for himself with the brilliant indie film Brick back in 2005.

Will J.J. Abrams Retcon STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI?

It’s been a few months since Star Wars: The Last Jedi completely destroyed fan theories that Rey was secretly related to the primary characters of the original trilogy.
