The massive query is why did not he reply to Leia throughout [The Drive Awakens]? There’s plenty of issues you may’t reply till you see this film… It is crucial for Luke to really feel grounded and really feel like he has a household. I believe he loves her dearly.
Per Rian Johnson’s feedback to EW, we’ll lastly have some form of Skywalker decision when The Final Jedi lastly arrives in theaters. And after dropping Han by the hands of Luke’s former padawan Kylo Ren, there is a ton of points for the siblings to hash out.
Luke’s absence in The Drive Awakens was some extent of competition for many followers. The thriller surrounding his look was at a fever pitch when the movie was launched in 2015, just for the protagonist to indicate up for a whopping two minutes within the movie’s remaining moments. Plus, after Han Solo died it grew to become clear that we would by no means be getting the trio of authentic protagonists again collectively.

It is doable that Han’s destiny may have been averted if Luke hadn’t despatched himself into exile. If he was a part of the small steam on Starkiller base, he may need been in a position to defend the scruffy wanting nerf herder, or battle against Kylo Ren.
