Even if you still haven't seen The Last Jedi, it's no secret that it's become one of the most divisive Star Wars films ever made. Now, after weeks of fans going back and forth online, arguing about what kind of force abilities Luke Skywalker can and can't use in the Star Wars universe, director Rian Johnson finally decided to weigh in.

Johnson's tweet storm shuts down any haters who argue that Luke's "force projection" power at the climax of the film is bullshit. According to the 2010 book, Star Wars: The Jedi Path, that whole meditating doppelgänger trick Luke pulls at the end of the film, helping the Resistance escape, is right there in the Jedi texts.

It turns out Johnson was staying true to the Expanded Universe his superfan critics hold so dear all along, and it seems to have worked! Cue the Mr. Supa Hot Fire GIFs.
