Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi is quite divisive amongst Star Wars fans, and that probably isn't going anywhere anytime soon, especially after a recent video of Kylo Ren star Adam Driver. Fans are eager to see Driver return as Ren in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which will also bring back The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams back to close out the trilogy he started. Some who aren't huge fans of the Last Jedi will probably get a kick out of the fact that during a recent interview Driver was asked a question about the other movies, and during his response, he could not think of the name to The Last Jedi.
Driver started out fine, saying "It affected everything that we did in The Force Awakens", but then when it was time to name The Last Jedi he went a bit blank, saying "everything that we did in the...uh.......uhm.... in the second one." People have been quick to react to the lapse, resulting in the clip going viral on social media.

Honestly, with the amount of promos he's doing for all his movies, the awards, etc...I'm surprised the poor boy remembers his own name. I don't think he's gotten a decent night's sleep since...well...who knows.— Stargazer1116 (@Stargazer11161) December 10, 2019
