There are plenty of similarities between The Last Jedi and The Empire Strikes Back. Both Star Wars movies continue the stories of heroes struggling to defeat a tyrannical galactic government that rules with an iron fist. In The Last Jedi, it's up to Rey, Finn, Poe, Luke, and Leia to stop Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order once and for all.
While The Last Jedi left us with plenty of unanswered questions, writer-director Rian Johnson clearly used Episode V as the model for his depiction of the Resistance. In the same way that The Force Awakens emulates A New Hope, at times, The Last Jedi perfectly emulates The Empire Strikes Back.
Below are the best examples proving that. Be warned, though. There are spoilers ahead.
