So that's Qui Gon Jinn then. Their outfits are pretty much the same.

Yeah been to a few cons, and there are some pretty brilliant costumes, but nothing comes close to seeing the actual costumes and props used in the movies.

Anyone watch Red Letter Media stuff? Their whole skit at the start of their Rogue One review rang pretty true, even though I think it's one of the best entries in the franchise

I like it, it echoes the OT, where we had A New Hope, and Return of the Jedi, now we have The Last Jedi. Return of the Jedi used red for its colour scheme (at least sometimes), so further links back.

It does rather suggest Luke is the titular last jedi, perhaps confirming the speculation that Kylo wiped out the rest and left an untrained (or at best partially trained) Rey behind.
