When the heroes of the Resistance realize that the First Order has been tracking their fleet, they seek the services of a master codebreaker in the high-end gambling resort of Canto Bight, to disable the beacon. Then Johnson throws in a twist, which severely divided fans when the movie first came out in December 2017.Ex-stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) and mechanic Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) slip into the city, but quickly get arrested.In jail, they meet a wily thief named DJ (Benicio Del Toro), who helps them escape, then later breaks them into a First Order stronghold. Though he gets Finn and Rose where they want to go, he also sells them out, revealing the Resistance’s secret plans and getting a lot of people killed., Matthew Erao describes the whole subplot as “roundabout” and “moot,” and complains that an action setpiece where Finn and Rose ride around on the city’s prized racing animals, the fathiers, “leads nowhere.”But the film’s March 27th release on DVD and Blu-ray offers a chance to carefully reconsider these scenes, and their significance in the story.In Johnson’s DVD / Blu-ray commentary track (recorded before beats in the same way.Referring to the franchise’s rogues, Johnson says, “We’ve always been conditioned to see them come around.” His DJ, on the other hand, is a knavish Han Solo type without a mitigating heroic streak.He’s an amoral crook who suggests there’s no real good or bad side in ’ endless interplanetary conflicts. Does DJ’s cynical attitude — which is also arguably Johnson’s argument — ruin the movie? last year, Joanna Robinson succinctly summed up a lot of the backlash, from the reasonable to the reactionary.Whether longtime fans like Johnson’s choices or not, though, it’s been odd to see the Canto Bight subplot dismissed as a waste of time, when it’s so clearly central to the film’s fundamental themes.Prior to films have largely dealt with down-and-out characters scraping by in junkyards and slums, but Canto Bight is a haven for the decadent super-rich, who’ve been largely untouched by what’s happening with the First Order and the Resistance — aside from taking money from both.Shot of the battle-scarred heroes regrouping on the main deck of the Millennium Falcon — the kind of image that would ordinarily lead directly to John Williams’ rousing exit theme — Johnson cuts back to Canto Bight, where the impoverished, oppressed stable boys and girls are already sharing the legend of how Luke Skywalker returned to the fray to stall the First Order and buy his friends time to escape.Earlier, these same kids witnessed Finn and Rose wrecking the casino, challenging authority, and freeing the fathiers.They actually helped the two Resistance members get away, and were left with Rose’s ring as a memento. It’s inspiring and important, and it’s leading to change in unexpected places.
