I see many people talking about how the movie will take place aprox 30 years after ROTJ which I agree on. What I also hear is about how Luke will have established this great new jedi order and jedi's will once again be a part of the post empire republic or whatnot. We cannot be assured the empire is completely gone btw and if there is conflict still after 30 years the galaxy is a big place. But I ask you to think on this from a realistic logical standpoint. If you think back to EP3 when the emperor had declared himself and how he gave his speech on how the jedi had tried to kill him etc everyone there from every planet seemed to be on the same page of "Jedi are bad now" they have become a threat. Thus order 66 happened and everyone seemed to be ok with jedi being hunted down. Except for a few who knew the truth Bail Organa and a few, jedi and their "ancient religion" are bad news. Now I know that the empire did bad things (blow up planets, desolve the senate EP4) etc. But for the most part order was kept and relative security in the inner rim so most ppl would still be on board with them. It was only the rebel alliance who was really rag tag and not offically from any planets that opposed them. You could say that many ppl were displeased by Ep6 hence the victory celebrations the emperors dead etc but the empire was still "Their" army and in control. I dont think even after 30 years that the empire would just be completely gone, it may be that there is some sort of civial galaxy war happening in Ep7 I dunno. All of the Moff wouldnt just say well thats it give me my retirement. They may have the senate back and a conflict between empire remnants and new republic again I dunno. Anyway to my point: I dont think the population as a whole would be willing to just be like hey luke come train a bunch of new jedi and lets start this whole process over again. We will rebuild the temple and all that jazz etc you can have free reign over disputes all of that, lead troops do it all. I feel many ppl would view them as dangerous, older ppl as terrorists. Young ppl as "whats a jedi"? Jedi were once guardians of peace yes in the past but the popular view of them changed drastically by the empire. They may not like the empire but they also may not want jedi running around again. We know Luke battled with the alliance but how many ppl even knew he was a jedi knight? or Vaders son? wouldnt be a good mix i dont think. Also, Despite what yoda said would Luke even want to train others? I kinda felt luke would just kinda dissapear wanting to move on and have peace, maybe even solitude like Kenobi on Tat. He never seemed like the type to want to organise something like a totally new order that would take hundreds of years most likely. It really depends on how dedicated he is going to be in EP7. Still i dont see new jedi orders like in all the EU books. I could see a very small secluded group of jedi padawans but nothing like i think alot of ppl are imagining for the movies. Another point if they killed off Luke in Ep 7 or 8 i think you could kiss a new order goodbye no one else would have the knowledge to do this. I really hope he doesnt die. Thoughts or am i mistaken?
