This week, the title for Star Wars Episode VIII was revealed causing us to not only massively geek out but also try to figure out who is The Last Jedi?! Perhaps Mark Hamill‘s theory may give us some answers… or not.
While at Sundance promoting his newest film, Brigsby Bear, Mark had this to say:
By the way, when you read The Force Awakens script, the very first two words are, ‘Luke Skywalker has vanished.’ Ooh, baby, this going to be good! I’m going to have a great part! But down later in the crawl, and I can’t quote it exactly, I saw on Twitter this morning, ‘until Skywalker, the last Jedi, is destroyed.’ I thought, well, I didn’t know that! I’ve only seen it twice – VII, I mean. And I was wondering why they would use that phrase if it was used that way, because it specifies me. And I think it’s very ambiguous. Is the last Jedi Leia? Is it me? […] Is it someone we’ve never met before? Or is it Rey? Because she seems to have the Force as well. So we’ll all wait and see.
Hmm, speak in riddles, Master Hamill does.
Who do you think The Last Jedi is? To better assist you with that answer, check out our colleague Kevin’s awesome article here!
