Because fans have been pretty confused.

People are still Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Despite , there's been a bit of a disparity between critics and fans. And apparently, one of the movie's key scenes has also caused some confusion among audiences.

[WARNING: SPOILERS]

At the climax of the film, Space Laura Dern's character, Holdo, sacrifices herself to save the Resistance. She pilots the Resistance starship into lightspeed right through the First Order destroyer. At the moment of impact, the sound in the film cuts out—an effect, that Star Wars VFX supervisor Ben Morris “would resonate, both as a story beat and as a striking visual, and when I heard all of the cries and gasps in the silence, it was just fantastic. We realized that it worked. That’s never really happened in Star Wars before.”

Unfortunately, Star Wars fans have been mildly confused by this. Some AMC theaters have begun posting warnings so audiences aren't thrown off by the silence.

“Please note: The Last Jedi contains a sequence at approximately 1 hour and 52 minutes into the movie in which ALL sound stops for about 10 full seconds,” reads an AMC note to moviegoers that was posted on Facebook by Paul Scheer. “While the images continue to play on the screen you will hear nothing. This is intentionally done by the director for a creative effect.”

And this is precisely what director Rian Johnson intended.

"I just wanted to make something that felt like a great Star Wars movie to me. And it’s the middle chapter, so it’s the one where we throw the hardest thing we can at each of the characters and really challenge them," Johnson told me. "And that leads to some surprising places—at least it did for me. I wasn’t coming into it with that intent, but I also couldn’t be afraid to shake some stuff up. It had to be something that was different than expected."

Of course, change isn't always easy for a franchise like Star Wars.
