Confirming the Last Jedi

Luke Skywalker, right now, is The Last Jedi,” Rian Johnson confirmed to the New York Times.

To recall, Mark Hamill’s character chose to live alone in a far away land after he failed to rebuild the Jedi Order when his apprentice and nephew, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), turned to the Dark Side.

He was named as the Jedi Killer then destroyed his uncle's temple and killed all his remaining trainees.

“There’s always wiggle room in these movies,” the director added. In fact, he revealed that “Episode 8” will center on Rey and Luke Skywalker’s adventures and how he will treat his new trainee. He even added that the film would be from a “certain point of view.” But coming to their story, Luke is the real last Jedi.

Aside from Rey and Luke Skywalker, Rian Johnson also confirmed that other characters’ stories would be explored as well.

The possible Jedi’s return

According to Metro Online, Rian Johnson used the word “right now” when revealing who the real Jedi is.

So, there might be a big possibility that the Jedi will return. In fact, this was made by Rey in “The Force Awakens,” where she was drawn when she held a lightsaber that was owned by Luke Skywalker and his father, Anakin Skywalker. Now, the weapon is calling her.

A new weapon

In “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” official trailer, fans haven’t seen Luke Skywalker holding his lightsaber, although Rey already gave it to him.

So, there is a new theory that the Jedi master has a new weapon that he used to survive in the wilds alone.

Daily Express reported that leaks are hinting that Luke Skywalker has a collection of mysterious ancient Force artifacts. This is even confirmed by the recent Force Friday II when his Hot Toys Cosbaby Bobble Head figure is holding a lightning rod that can emit lightning, per “Star Wars” theorist Mike Zeroh.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is set to hit the big screen on Dec. 15 in the U.S. Stay tuned for more updates.
