If there’s one thing we know for certain with every single Star Wars movie, it’s that someone will have a bad feeling about this. Not about the movie — rather, an event transpiring in the film. The line goes all the way back to the first flick, A New Hope, and even made a quick appearance in the first stand-alone Star Wars film, Rogue One (though K2-SO was cut off before he could finish). So when does “bad feeling” happen in Last Jedi?
Those of you who have seen The Last Jedi – and, from the box office numbers, I’m assuming that’s all of you — might have left the theater wondering when exactly this line happens…because you don’t hear it. But I swear it’s in there. Director Rian Johnson put it in there, because he knows what we want. And we want someone to have a bad feeling about this.
So who says the iconic line that you 100% missed, since it was said via beeps? BB-8, obviously.
Talking to The Huffington Post, Johnson explained that he let everyone’s favorite little orange droid deliver the quote. It happens at the very beginning of the movie, when BB-8 and flyboy Poe Dameron are going after the First Order ship. Remember when Poe mutters, “Happy beeps?” Yeah, he’s telling BB-8 not to have a bad feeling about this mission.
This is almost as good as Rey going “Yeah, say that,” to Chewbacca when the walking carpet suggests something incoherent as a message to pass along to Finn. Almost as good.
