Despite its financial success, Star Wars: The Last Jedi deeply divided the franchise’s fanbase. Now, Rian Johnson’s movie has done the same to the Honest Trailers crew — so much so that they invited the person who did the original voiceovers to back his claim up that Rian Johnson’s movie is “the worst Star Wars film ever.”
The Honest Trailers team further stirs the pot with the current narrator taking the side of those who love and defend Johnson’s story, giving us just over six minutes of back-and-forth banter and criticism. The discussion wades into Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) turning his back on the galaxy, his new hobby of milking aliens and his relationship with Daisy Ridley’s Rey. She doesn’t escape the spotlight, either, with the commentary also taking aim at her lack of backstory and her bond with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

Everything’s fair game in the parody trailer: from the Porgs to Chewbacca (or lack thereof) to the angsty and shirtless Kylo Ren. Last but not least, the narrators battle it out over Snoke’s history and just how much of a good thing it was for Johnson to break such new ground for the franchise. If anything, the Honest Trailer just proves that this movie will continue to polarize Star Wars fans.
