Weirdly, the new ‘Scream’ looks exactly like a ‘Star Wars’ movie


And the original Yell the trio works here much like the original three star wars the heroes do in the sequel trilogy; Dewey, like Han, split from Gale (Leia) and basically became an aimless dropout who is still revered by the younger generation, who know all about his past adventures.

And just as Han was killed in the force awakensDewey is tragically murdered early in the story – by someone with a mask and a black cape, no less.

Sidney Prescott is the Luke Skywalker of history; she lives as far away from the town of Woodsboro as possible (which is understandable) but is drawn into the story after her friend’s death. And when Sam impulsively chooses to leave, Sidney tries to warn him, ultimately to no avail – much like Luke does with Rey in The Last Jedi. Even the very end of the film has a similar vibe to the final moments of The Rise of Skywalker; with Luke and Leia from YellSidney and Gale, watching over Sam.

It seems doubtful that this was all done by accident; one of the film’s many jabs at toxic fan culture is the brief mention of a controversial new subject Stab reboot that was crossed out by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson – a very joke almost included a cameo from Johnson himself. Fortunately, the Yell the filmmakers refrained from sending characters on an extended run through a distant casino.
