    Agreed. One they settled on the Luke/ Skellig ending, you can't cut away to him earlier. Mark's "missed opportunity" solution is a bad idea in terms of the wider story they are trying to tell, and best treated as such.

    Mark Hamill not happy with the Sequel Trilogy

    MODifed: Outdated news and the video has a Disallowed Word in the title.

    I agree. Mark's "missed opportunity" is that he did not get to be God Luke.

    All this talk about God Luke bothers me, only because I do not want to see Luke be the most powerful Jedi there ever was. For me, that feels like a Deus Ex Machina. He's flawed and there's still a part of him that probably never attained the stillness Yoda did (but to be fair, did any other Jedi attain that degree of tranquility through opening themselves up to the Force?)

    I think Luke will be shown as less than perfect in Ep. 8. I think it'll make him a more well-rounded character if he has flaws, fears and issues he needs to overcome, like all the other characters. Perfect characters are boring.

    I love how effortlessly his TFA look seems to have been established as THE Luke Skywalker look of today.

    It gave me the fright of my life. I always imagined myself growing up to be like Han Solo at his age in the OT. Then, at that age, I see an approximation of myself in Luke Skywalker, aged thirty years older than he appeared in the OT. :(
