Luke shares zero scenes with the rest of the original cast in empire. Was this intentional?
Luke and Han will never share a scene in the new trilogy.
They killed Han without so much as getting a fucking reunion with one of his closest friends.
If Han comes back as a force ghost, I will straight up walk out of my theater.
Luke and Han at the start
Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie and 3PO at the start
Leia tells him it's a trap in Cloud City
Leia saves him from Cloud City
Leia, R2, and 3PO are with him in the closing scene
OP are you an idiot?
Luke, did Sheev ever tell you about the super secret dark Jedi magic trick where you can bring your good friends back from the dead and live forever? There's one catch, you have to murder a bunch of kids. A dozen or so, maybe twenty just to make sure it sticks. Your father did this very same thing and after living life as a hideous deformed cyborg, came back as Hayden Christiansen. He was a good friend.
>Luke and Han will never share a scene in the new trilogy
This is honestly such bullshit. I bet they'll kill Luke off before he ever sees Leia again, too.
No, I think the novelization implies that neither of them have anything against Luke and that they don't blame him for the Kylo incident. If anything his "I knew him" sounded like he was overcome with nostalgia.
>Wouldn't be surprised if he blamed Luke for Kylo's fall
Kylo was already a problem child long before they sent him to Luke. Apparently Leia knew via the force that Snoke was speaking with Kylo, but she didn't tell Han because he's not force sensitive. They then sent him off to Luke as a last ditch effort.
>I can't, it's too big
>size matters not
What did they mean by this?
This was the last time they spoke as non-frozen friends.
This, his flared out 70's hairstyle is practically iconic, don't know why they decided to do away with it for the last movie.
I heard we were having a Luke thread and came as fast as I could.
shit, looks fucking bro based as fuck
for some reason the maturity of mark hamils face really brings home the end of ROTJ to me
now imaging pre crash Luke taking on Vader for the first time in ESB, well
honestly it's just the maturity of it all
When the dialogue stopped being Lucas written and the pacing stopped being Lucas set, it was immediately elevated. It's like the elevation from Genre to Literature. And Star Wars was about as good genre as you can get
There's a marked difference between his face in the first movie and the last one. His nose and cheeks got rekt and I'm sure the surgery combined with aging is what made him look so haggard in ROTJ.
Amazing, he looks thinner there than he did in TFA. Hope he keeps the weight off forever.
I like you two. Also from what I've read, Kershner really encouraged the actors to have table discussions about their characters and development, including improvising dialogue. Whereas Lucas was kind of a "1 take and done" director
Good thing Luke isn't an autist like his dad.
>Kershner really encouraged the actors to have table discussions about their characters and development, including improvising dialogue
Should've been that way for the entire series, Lucas is embarrassingly terrible at actually directing actors. He should really just stick to coming up with ideas and nothing else.
What would be nice if if Snoke had begun turning the Knights of Ren to the dark side, and Luke, having been well acquainted with the dark side himself, convinced Ben that the only way to win would be for him to become a sleeper agent. Which would have made Han's death necessary as it was, and add weight to the moment when Kylo Ren finally turns back to the light side.
But there's no way that will happen, Ben is just an angsty manchild.
>the way it burries its face in Mark's arm
>tfw no middle aged luke
Either go twink Luke or old Luke, there is no in between.
I have to post at least one pic of him like this. please forgive me
Looks too much like other actors there, not distinct enough to be a true Mark.
I would go that far. They're war buddies and compatriots, but Han's closest friends seem to be Chewie and that's it.
And he won't return to be a force ghost, he didn't like working on the Star Wars films and only took this role to close out his character. He won't do it for money, either, because he was the only one to retain merch options from the first trilogy and he has a ton of other good films bringing him income, unlike Hamill and Fisher.
The Big Red One is under-rated as fuck.
>They're war buddies and compatriots, but Han's closest friends seem to be Chewie and that's it
They have a fire forged bond, you fool, Chewie was more like a pet.
Is this actually you or are you just yanking our chains?
I think it's bullshit the endgame wasn't both Luke and Leia wanting to get fucked by Han desu
It's the hair
Why do people keep saying this? When Rey drove the Falcon back to the Resistance base Chewie was seen huddled in a corner.
I'm not sure if he got out of the ship when it landed though. He probably did.
That's a big part of it, but his face in general isn't nearly as qt in that movie. Maybe aging after the surgery fucked everything up?
>those knee high boots
So many exploitable outfits wasted in the 70's fandom.
So that's what pic related is based off.
>people harass the shit out of Ford about shooting first
>he says he doesn't care most of the time
>sometimes he'll say "If George says I shot second, I shot second."
>Hamill even asked people to lay off on that question
Sure, of course there is. Given that Disney's already looking into making a "Young Han Solo Adventures" movie, I'd say it's even likely the idea gets kicked around in at least pre-production eventually.
Just don't expect Harrison Ford to have even the slightest amount of involvement in it. Mark Hamill's been doing voicework for decades, so I'm sure he'd be game, and Carrie Fisher would probably be willing enough, but if you asked Harrison Ford "Hey, would you like to voice an Animated version of Han Solo for a Star Wars cartoon?", he might actually break your nose.
Why is Luke such a likeable character anyway? The way his story arc goes he really should be a bit of a twat for most of it duration (all the way until RotJ and there he stops being a twat and becomes more dickish) but he still manages to be likeable as fuck.
How is he not likeable?
Young kid with big dreams. Destined for something more. Nice, good heart. Had a lot taken from him.
If you want to talk unlikeable, Han Solo.
>shoots greedo in cold blood and just walks without caring
>HURR ALL I CARE ABOUT IS MY REWARD
>IM TAKING YOU THIS FAR AND DATS ALL
>I DONT WANNA GET INVOLVED IN ANYTHING IVE ALREADY DONE TOO MUCH ALL I CARE ABOUT IS MONEY
Harrison's weird unnatural delivery of the lines didn't help either.
I never got the "he's too whiny" complaints because his brand of whiny is a totally harmless, naive, almost endearing kind of whining, not any of that godawful "everything sucks, my life sucks, I hate everyone, I should be the strongest Jedi, etc." bullshit. He's just an all around innocent, pure hearted, nice guy who underwent decent character development.
took itself seriously but at the same time it is
nightmarish in many places: the cave, the carbonite, the duel, the fall through cloud city - all ethereal, dreamlike, full of drama and meaning but almost entirely felt, not understood... hits you right in the unconcious
I've seen a lot of appreciation for Luke nowadays and I think that's because there's generally a new wave of appreciation for kind hearted "good" characters. The general public seems to be bored of the bad boy trope as it's been run into the ground at this point.
>implying the shiny smooth curves of the Republic steadily giving way to harsh boxy greys and whites of the Empire isn't an excellent thematic tie to the fall of a golden age story
(sorry for bad english) i always look the way lukes faces changes like this, in the first film he is this idealistic young kid who has never experienced war before the attack on the death star. when we meet luke again its a few years later and he has been if more then a few battles and his face reflects this, we also see this in ROTJ.
As his face changes, so does his character, he becomes more mature through out the films.
This gives a really nice character arch
>I was tired of getting hit on by beautiful women every time I went out in public, and then I bought this jacket. Problem solved.
I must add that this jacket's repellent powers are infinitely multiplied when coupled with the included Medal of Yavin. Without it, the untrained female eye may confuse this ceremonial jacket with a Justin Timberlake style biker coat.
So if you're the type of guy who prefers to sit in the corner of the bar sipping a mikes hard lemonade while playing touch screen erotic photo hunt without any interruptions, you need to get this jacket. The 7 year olds in Shanghai who made this must-own article of clothing didn't grind out this bad boy for nothing.
