Is Famed ‘Star Wars’ Line – ‘I Have a Bad Feeling About This’ – in ‘The Last Jedi’? Fans Are Worried

Bit of dialogue uttered in every single ”Star Wars“ movie may be masked from fans

Warning: Some mild spoilers ensue. 

“Star Wars” fans have noticed one famous line present in all the films missing from “The Last Jedi,” but director Rian Johnson promises “it’s in there.”

“I have a bad feeling about this,” or some iteration, is present in every “Star Wars” film, from “The Phantom Menace” to “Rogue One” to, of course, “A New Hope.” It has become a classic, and fans are worried that Johnson didn’t continue the tradition.

Early viewers of the sequel are saying no human in the movie says they “have a bad feeling” about anything, but perhaps a certain rotund robot says the line.

Some fans are guessing that BB-8 tells fighter pilot Poe (Oscar Isaac) it’s got a bad feeling at the beginning of the film. The droid beeps something to make Poe reply, “Positive beeps only.”

Johnson responded to one’s fan inquiry about the line on Twitter, saying “It’s in there!” but didn’t give further specifics.


TheWrap has reached out to Disney in an attempt to solve this “Star Wars” mystery once and for all — but alas, the studio declined comment, wanting to leave the debate open for fans to solve.
