Luke Skywalker Last Jedi backstory

What was Luke Skywalker doing in the thirty years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens? We know about a few precious fragments of what happened to him during that time, but if you’re hoping for an extended exposition scene in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi in which Luke explains the past three decades to an inquisitive Rey, I’m sorry to report that you’re out of luck.

In a new interview, actor Mark Hamill reveals that Luke’s backstory is “not important” in The Last Jedi.

Does Luke join the Dark Side

“It’s time for the Jedi to end.” Star Wars fans practically lost their minds when Luke Skywalker uttered those words in a trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and that statement combined with images of the sci-fi icon looking stern and shrouded in shadows on posters have made it clear that the Luke we meet in this movie has experienced some major changes since we saw him in Return of the Jedi.

But does Luke join the Dark Side in The Last Jedi? In a new interview, actor Mark Hamill talks about Luke’s state of mind and sheds some light on how he’s doing when we catch up with him. If you’re looking to avoid spoilers, it might be best to sit this one out.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV Spot

We’re just a month and a half away from Star Wars: The Last Jedi hitting theaters. Though the last theatrical trailer gave us plenty of new footage and dialogue to sink our teeth into, we’re starting to get more thanks to the TV spot portion of Disney and Lucasfilm’s marketing campaign.

A new Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV spot debuted Thursday evening, and while it mostly features footage from the aforementioned trailer, there are a handful of stunning new shots, including that one above of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) back in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon for the first time in decades. Check out the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV spot below. Read More »

It’s no secret that the marketing for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been carefully composed to hide the film’s biggest secrets. In fact, there’s something to be said for how the modern trailer machine has gotten so good at selling these massive event films while leaving the biggest secrets and reveals hidden. There’s an art to it!

However, things start to get a little less controlled once you stray outside of the intended cone of vision. Specifically, international marketing tends to lean more heavily on the spoilers, hoping to cast a wider net over audiences that can sometimes be more fickle than predictable Americans. So before you take a look at the new Star Wars The Last Jedi international poster, which features a reveal that will probably be more effective in the actual movie, please note this spoiler warning.

star wars episode 9

In the aftermath of Colin Trevorrow leaving the director’s chair of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode 9, there was a lot of speculation about who might take over. Eventually J.J. Abrams, the prodigal son who relaunched the franchise with The Force Awakens in 2015, returned to the fold, but before that was locked in, there was some speculation that The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson may come back to finish off the trilogy. After all, it was initially reported that Johnson would be writing the story treatment for Episode 9 – a claim the filmmaker recently described as inaccurate and based on “old info.”

But Johnson took himself out of the running for Episode 9, and in a new interview he confirms that he is not involved in the development of the upcoming follow-up to his sequel. And while we’re here, he also addresses the speculation that Luke Skywalker may be transitioning to the dark side of the Force.
