Thisisinfamous.com is has a story about the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII.
From what I’ve been told, Luke hasn’t been missing for a full 30 years, only about 10, with his early time post-RETURN OF THE JEDI being spent rebuilding the Jedi Order. Yeah, Luke had some things to do, in order to help get things back on track after the fall of the Empire. In addition, he has grown so powerful with his command of the Force that he can literally move mountains or bring down ships with merely a glance.
That lines up with what we recently heard that Luke is missing for ten years. We heard the opposite about the Jedi Order being rebuilt though and that they are not around. However, back at Egyptian screening of Return of the Jedi in 2013, Mark Hamill said he wasn’t really that inclined to do a lot of lightsaber training and work at his age. He wanted powers that were more like that of a wizard. It makes me wonder if they took his suggestion.
They then go on to say that Luke goes into a self-imposed exile. The kicker? He goes to Dagobah. That’s sounds fun but kind of flies in the face of Skellig Michael rumors that Ridley’s “Kira” finds Luke Skywalker there and springs him from seclusion or capture.
We’re just passing on what is out there. Interesting stuff.
Thanks to Kevin Merritt for the heads up!
