Et une version Lego de maître Luke Skywalker
Par le biais d’un tweet, Mark Hamill semble avoir confirmé que Luke Skywalker pourrait bien être présent dans le 9e épisode de la trilogie numéraire Star Wars. Voilà pourquoi. Attention, spoiler sur l’épisode VIII !
Il y a quelques semaines, l’acteur Mark Hamill expliquait qu’il n’était pas particulièrement motivé par l’idée de revenir dans un prochain Star Wars sous les traits de Luke Skywalker. Si l’absence de Harrison Ford était alors évoquée, c’est surtout le décès de Carrie Fisher qui a énormément affecté le comédien. Pourtant, il semblerait bien que le scénario de Star Wars IX ait changé ses plans, à en croire un tweet assez lourd de sens récemment posté par Mark Hamill.
Sur l’image, tirée d’un comics de Star Wars : Les Derniers Jedi, on peut voir Luke sur le point de disparaître, lâchant le « See you around, kid » qu’il lance à Kylo dans le film. En guise de commentaire, Mark Hamill a simplement posté « #Foreshadowing », ce que l’on peut interpréter comme la promesse de revoir Luke sous une forme spectrale.
Star Wars IX n’a pas de titre et ne sortira pas avant un an et demi, soit le 18 décembre 2019 en France. Si l’on ne doute pas que quelques informations seront distillées par Lucasfilm d’ici là, pour avoir le cœur net concernant ce teasing pas si mystérieux, il va falloir patienter longtemps…

One of Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s more striking moments also happens to be its last, as the narrative switches perspectives away from the movie’s leading characters to one whose name the audience doesn’t even know. A little boy shown earlier in the movie during its Canto Bight sequence is casually revealed to be Force-sensitive, and star Mark Hamill has now shared his thoughts on what the scene means not only for The Last Jedi, but for the entire Star Wars universe going forward.
“What I love particularly was – and they didn’t have to do this because the movie’s over – all of a sudden you cut to the stable and there’s that little boy, he puts out his hand and the broom comes to him,” Hamill told Games Radar. “It’s so subtle, the first time I saw it I thought he just took it, but if you look he puts his hand out and it moves over for him, implying that yeah, she’s [Rey is] the last Jedi… until the next Jedi.”
The actor then remarked that although the Skywalker saga might be reaching a close once Episode IX releases on December 20, 2019, Star Wars is here for the long haul. “It’ll go on forever, believe me,” he added. “Long after both of us are gone they’ll be making these films from here into eternity.”
Available now digitally and on Blu-ray and DVD, writer/director Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Benicio Del Toro as ‘DJ’, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, and the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa.
The depiction of Mark Hamill’s aging Jedi Master Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been a point of contention for a number of longtime fans. In fact, it even sparked a petition to remove the eighth chapter of the saga from Star Wars canon for “[destroying] the legacy of Luke Skywalker and the Jedi.” However, it isn’t just fans who’ve taken exception with writer/director Rian Johnson’s handling of Luke, as even the actor himself is still struggling to come to terms with his character’s portrayal in the film.
“I said to Rian, I said ‘Jedis don’t give up’,” Hamill explained in an interview currently making the rounds on YouTube. “I mean even if he had a problem, maybe take a year to try and regroup… but if he made a mistake he would try and right that wrong, so right there, we had a fundamental difference, but, it’s not my story anymore. It’s somebody else’s story, and Rian needed me to be a certain way to make the ending effective.”
“That’s the crux of my problem,” he continued. “Luke would never say that. I’m sorry. Well, in this version, see. I’m talking about the George Lucas Star Wars. This is the next generation of Star Wars, so I almost had to think of Luke as another character. Maybe he’s ‘Jake’ Skywalker, he’s not my Luke Skywalker.”
Nevertheless, despite Hamill’s obvious frustration, he would go on to say, “I still haven’t accepted it completely, but it’s only a movie. I hope people like it, I hope they don’t get upset, and I came to really believe that Rian was the exact man that they needed for this job.”
Hamill’s concerns with how Johnson chose to depict Luke in The Last Jedi are well-documented. In an interview back in May, Hamill noted that he told Johnson, “I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character.” He would downplay those remarks the following month, but even at a press junket just days before The Last Jedi‘s theatrical release, Hamill would reiterate that his and Johnson’s vision for Luke simply didn’t line up.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Benicio Del Toro as ‘DJ’, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, and the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa. The film is in theaters worldwide.
