The Force Awakens Alternate Ending

The end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens dealt quite a blow to fans with the death of Han Solo at the hands of his son Ben, who turned to the dark side as Kylo Ren. Sadly, the death of Han Solo means that fans won’t get to see a reunion between their favorite smuggler and his old pal, Luke Skywalker. That’s something that definitely bums Mark Hamill out, and he expressed as much in a new interview. The actor then went on to discuss a The Force Awakens alternate ending he thought of while reading the script, one that would have added even more emotional weight to the death of Han Solo.

Mark Hamill’s tribute to Carrie Fisher panel

With this year marking the first Star Wars Celebration since Carrie Fisher passed away last winter, there were plenty of touching words said about the late actress and writer by colleagues and admirers alike. But no one gave Carrie quite as wonderful a tribute as Star Wars brother Mark Hamill.

Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher formed a strong bond on the set of Star Wars and an even stronger friendship after the film turned them into international superstars. Therefore it should come as no surprise that Mark Hamill has some truly delightful, touching stories about Carrie Fisher in his own Star Wars Celebration panel that was a nearly hour-long tribute to the woman he refers to as his “beloved space twin.” Fortunately, you can watch Mark Hamill’s tribute to Carrie Fisher panel in its entirety right now.

Who is the Last Jedi

Following the release of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there were plenty of details for fans to obsess about in the new footage (check out our trailer breakdown for a closer look). But perhaps the most shocking part of the trailer comes from the end when we hear Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker say, “I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end.”

This detail about the movie has been there this whole time in the title The Last Jedi, but at the same time, fans have also been wondering who the title is referring to. It was thought that the international titles revealed that the title was plural, either referring to Luke and Rey (Daisy Ridley) or maybe Luke and either some Jedi who are still alive, or the Jedi who were killed by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the Knights of Ren. But it turns out, the title isn’t plural.

In a recent interview following the premiere of the teaser trailer, director Rian Johnson seemingly confirmed the title is specifically referring to Luke Skywalker, which may provide some insight into what we can expect from the Jedi master in this movie. Furthermore, with Luke Skywalker coming to the belief that the Jedi must end, Mark Hamill doesn’t rule out the possibility that our hero takes a turn to the dark side. Find out more after the jump.
