Episode 9 ending

George Lucas‘ involvement with the Star Wars franchise is (mostly) a thing of the past. But at one point, Lucas had plans for the on-going Skywalker saga. Plans that were all but abandoned when Disney took over. Now, Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, has revealed Lucas’ original Episode 9 ending idea. There’s absolutely no chance of this happening now, so we wouldn’t classify this as a spoiler. But let’s just go ahead and issue a spoiler warning just to be safe.

The Last Jedi costume change

When writer/director Rian Johnson began writing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he was handed a pretty serious cliffhanger to resolve: Rey standing on an Ahch-To cliffside, offering a beige-and-white-clad Luke Skywalker his father’s lightsaber. The Last Jedi‘s opening scene picks up where The Force Awakens‘ left off, and after unceremoniously tossing the saber over his shoulder, Skywalker immediately changes out of his light colored robes and into darker garb.

Luke’s darker robes better represent the character’s internal struggle, but now we know there’s an actual story reason for his new look. Read on to discover the reason behind Skywalker’s The Last Jedi costume change.

Star Wars The Last Jedi - Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker - Young Luke Skywalker Movie

Currently, the future of Star Wars lies in expanding the franchise with two new series of movies. The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is working on a new trilogy outside of the traditional Skywalker saga and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are working on another series of movies outside of both those arenas. There are also the ongoing chapters in A Star Wars Story that seem to be filling the gaps of the original Star Wars movies so far, including Rogue One and this year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story. So is there a chance other classic characters could get their own spin-offs?

Star Wars saga star Mark Hamill was asked about the prospect of seeing a spin-off that focuses on Luke Skywalker’s life before he got caught up in the fight against the Empire. Though he’s not necessarily keen on the idea of that kind of prequel-esque story, he does have a wish as to who would play the young Luke Skywalker now that Hamill himself is a little too old for the gig.
