Thanks to a Disney shareholder's meeting last night in Denver, we have learned some new information about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, including the first words ever spoken by Luke in the new trilogy. Disney screened footage of the film, and Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller was there and relayed some information abut what he saw, most importantly being "Luke's first words."
At the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey (Daisy Ridley) traverses a treacherous path up a rigid mountainside to finally come face-to-face with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in his secluded residence, she reaches out to hand him his lightsaber, and we are ended with a cliffhanger just as bad as The Walking Dead left us with at the end of Season 6. So what did Luke say? Luke offers Rey a dubious question, one brought about likely from years of contemplation and asks, "Who are you?" Rey hands Luke his light saber, and that is about all they see of the scene.
Well, that was a bit of a let down. I was hoping for, "Rey, I am your father," or "Hey, I am really tired of fishing around here, do you by chance have any grilled Womp Rat in your pack?" Either way, Luke is skilled in the ways of the force. Is the fact that he does not know her right off-the-bat enough to let us know that the theory many have, that Luke is indeed her father, enough to disprove this? I doubt it, because he never knew that Leia (Carrie Fisher) was his sister until Yoda pointed him in the right direction, however he did use the force to figure that out and even said, "Leia is my sister." Very interesting. *correction - Leia said "I've always know," not Luke, but that is even more proof - thanks Skullz.*
Disney CEO Bob Iger had this to say to say about the footage:
“We make a point of revealing very little from our upcoming Star Wars films, we want to keep them secret. But we’re making an exception today. We’re going to show you an exclusive first look at what happens right after that scene, and that lightsaber being handed to its rightful owner.”
The screener for the footage also showed Chewbacca, Finn (John Boyega) and the late great Fisher, along with more footage of "mountains, oceans, forests, deserts."
He then took a moment to address the crowd about the passing of Fisher.
“Carrie Fisher has been an iconic part in this franchise from the very beginning. We all miss her. She had great talent and wit. We’re proud that this movie coming up is part of her legacy.”
We will have to wait until December to find out! Is this enough to disprove that Luke is Rey's father? Please chat away below!
