" Star Wars: The Last Jedi " director Rian Johnson discovered that Russian Twitter accounts are serious about saving Admiral Hux.
In the documentary "The Director and the Jedi", which was screened at South by Southwest On Monday and now is available with the release of "The Last Jedi", Johnson says he has received hundreds of coordinated tweets that demand that the character of Domhall Gleeson survive. The Film School Rejects website called the moment to our attention.
"All of Russian accounts, and everyone begging me not to kill Admiral Hux in this movie," Johnson said. "Look at this, General Hux, lovely personality, if you kill him in the new episode my heart can not stand it & # 39; HuxLive & # 39;".
While the hashtag has been inactive recently, a quick search until early 2016 shows many tweets that demand that Hux survive the latest Star Wars movie.
Some use illustrations to show their desire to see the character live.
And another one even points out how it seems that only the Russian accounts are fighting for their survival.
Spoiler Alert: While these versions are unlikely to have any effect, Admiral Hux survives "The Last Jedi," only to bow to his rival become Supreme Leader Kylo Ren.
