Despite the fact that Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced again Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford again into the galaxy far, distant, it wasn’t just like the Authentic Trilogy days the place the trio spent a whole lot of time collectively. Whereas Han Solo and Leia Organa did reunite throughout The Power Awakens, Luke Skywalker did not totally seem till the film’s last minutes, and sadly, he will not see Han once more because of Kylo Ren. As for whether or not or not The Last Jedi will ship a Luke/Leia reunion, director Rian Johnson continues to be retaining retaining these specific particulars near the chest. Leisure Weekly simply debuted a brand new cowl that includes Hamill and Fisher collectively, however when requested if because of this the Skywalker siblings might be collectively once more in subsequent month’s Star Wars film, Johnson responded:
It is good seeing them on the quilt although. Even when all now we have is that.
As a consequence of Carrie Fisher passing away final yr, Star Wars: The Final Jedi marks her final theatrical efficiency, and there are not any plans to recreate Leia Organa for Episode IX. Which means that if Leia would not reunite with Luke in The Final Jedi, then there isn’t any probability of ever seeing the siblings collectively once more in a film setting, leaving Return of the Jedi because the final time they shared house on the large display. In fact, such a reunion would nonetheless be bittersweet provided that Han Solo was mercilessly killed by Kylo Ren, Leia and Han’s son, in addition to Luke’s nephew/former apprentice.
From what’s been proven in Star Wars: The Final Jedi‘s advertising and marketing and promotional materials, Luke will spend a big chunk of time on Ahch-To coaching Rey within the methods of the Power. It stays to be seen if he’ll lastly wrap up his self-imposed exile, however as Mark Hamill informed EW, though Luke desires to be again together with his household, he is turned his again on making that occur. Hamill defined:
Luke longs to have that prolonged household that he established within the unique trilogy, however now he is at a spot in his life and in his historical past the place he is shunned all of that. The massive query is why did not he reply to Leia throughout [The Power Awakens]? There’s a whole lot of issues you may’t reply till you see this film.
Whereas Luke struggles with his inner demons and expresses terror at seeing Rey’s unbelievable energy, Leia will proceed being one in all The Resistance’s key figures. Nonetheless, she will not be the group’s high chief anymore, with Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo filling these footwear. The Final Jedi trailer urged that Kylo Ren is contemplating killing his mother after efficiently getting his father out of the image, however whether or not that occurs or Leia’s story ends another manner, little doubt many Star Wars followers are hoping to see Leia and Luke collectively one final time to strengthen Carrie Fisher’s sendoff from the franchise.
