what awesome jedi powers do you think he'll have?
i'd rather not even see him duel with a lightsaber. his powers should be way beyond that.
jedis cant shot lightning you fucking baka. that's a sith ability.
Dude is fucking old and has been living alone on a shitty island for years, probably meditating and talking to ghostyoda and ben. his only power is the wisdom to teach rey before getting fucked up by snoke.
>Actually, Rey will do it on her first try.
I will LITERALLY shout reddit in the theater if this happens.
I want Luke to convince Kylo to return to the side of light, only to do the suprise stab move Kylo did to Han. That will learn him, and as he lays dying Rey, Finn and Luke kick and spit unto Kylo Ren, and they even kick his dick
>I will LITERALLY shout reddit in the theater if this happens.
Go back and watch Tron Legacy
Theyre both 30 years late sequels and Jeff Bridges is basically a Jedi. Both made by Disney too.
Seriously, I wouldnt be surprised if Snoke is detached manifested half of Luke.
>episode 8 starts with kylo + knights of ren landing on the island
>rey stands before them, alone and unarmed
>"well if it isn't the scavenger."
>"my powers have grown, kylo. beyond your comprehension."
>"we'll see about that."
>kylo + knights power up their weapons
>rey smirks, and says
>EU Luke was trying to rebuild the Jedi
>fucked up but learned from his mistakes and ended up being the greatest force user by the end
I wouldn't even mind Disney having him run off if I knew they weren't going to fuck him up, but I know they will
I bet he doesn't even have to hand gesture anymore. The galaxy just moves around him.
But seriously he's in hiding because he's trying to find a way to exorcise the force from himself and make it so he's no longer a target. The reason why he might've been so hard to find might be because he's been suppressing his use of the force for a while. He looks sort of rough, kind of like a junkie that's been weening off the heroin. Or Carrie Fischer. That could be a result of the suppression.
Nigga she's always drunk when she tweets.
The weirdest part about what they're doing with Rey is that it will probably backfire in promoting the idea of strong female leads in film.
I was talking to this normal girl at my work, and her main criticism with the film was that she was "tired of all of these films with strong female leads." I was pretty surprised, because I don't think it makes sense for a girl to be against a strong female lead, or really anyone to be against it, but I'm pretty sure most people think any example of something is representative of it as a whole. All of these movies coming out with lazy depictions of strong female leads with no character development will probably push people against the whole notion of a strong female lead.
>implying episode 8 won't start with Rey running Luke through with his own lightsaber
You're in for quite the surprise anon.
>i'd rather not even see him duel with a lightsaber.
I disagree with this, I think he should be teaching Rey more about the lightsaber, from its usage to its construction. He's not Yoda, his lightsabers were a huge part of his adventures and helped him become the legend he is.
If she doesn't get one though, she's gonna do the darkside m8. Then she'll gut Luke like a tauntaun.
>implying Luke won't learn positive force lightning
>which in JJ Abrams pottery form will be black lightning (with purple outline), contrasting the light color of sith lightning and the usual black/white dichotomy
Luke will be killed and realize that the only way to bring balance to the force is to train more. So he'll go to Yoda's force hut and train at 500x gravity while Qui-gon and Obi-wan serve drinks and have a party with Samuel L. Jackson and Sio Bibble. Smh.
Nah, Kylo will return to the light and finally become as powerful as he thought the dark was going to get him.
>it's never too late
>there's still good in you
>it was in you the whole time
name of your sex tape
Use the force to levitate lightsabers and throw people off balance when they try to attack/strike him.
It's one of the only things I haven't seen in the movies yet
Darth Vader was 45 years old in Return of The Jedi.
Luke Skywalker is 53 in The Force Awakens.
Luke is now older than Vader ever was.
I still don't understand why anyone likes that fucking game, much less considering it to be "among the best rpgs ever" or some shit. It felt like the same sort of shitty garbage that normally came from the EU.
At least KotOR 1 felt like a Star Wars story.
Should episode 8 feature Gary the Dog?
>tfw i'm closer to TFA Luke Skywalker's age than I am Darth Vader's
nah senpai. they wont film on that island again. it'll be implied that she was trained there but I don't think luke will leave.he'll just communicate with her and guide her later with the force.

I don't really know how Jedi grow in the force. I just don't see him getting much stronger than he was in Return. I mean maybe the skills he showed then have improved with practice but How are you really developing new skills with no one around to practice or train with. I guess Yoda, Ben and Anakin could give clues to the things they knew or insight from being "one with the force". It's just it's not like he didn't have other shit to do. War clean up, finding a place to train, finding force sensitive students, the day to day shit of running a school. How much time could he have really had to improve himself. Maybe in the last however many years he' been in hiding he could have been training for this confrontation with Kylo or Snoke, assuming he knows about Snoke. I just don't see a tremendous leap in improvement. More of a guy that's an impressive Jedi because there are no other Jedi around to compare him to.
>Actually, Rey will do it on her first try.
He should at least be as powerful as Sheev. I want to see him do some crazy shit.
Snoke is said to be scared of him, so he's not weak.
Women actually prefer flawed female leads and character growth. That's why every fucking women magazine is filled with self help. They like stories about women who get better at things.
Please God don't have Rey do that. I've defended her but I can't stomach the thought of anyone but Luke rebuilding the Jedi.
There was something like that in the old EU, Electric Judgement or whatever. Could be cool.
I want him to to be the strongest jedi we've seen in any Star Wars movie.
Where just walking down a hall shit ruptures and bends and breaks from the force which surrounds him.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs_kkJRNbf0 I want Galen tier force abilities.
I want something like the cave scene with Rey and Kylo. Cameo from Hayden Christensen, playing Anakin and Vader, Kylo kills Anakin, Rey kills Vader.
Fuck. Someone hire me as a writer.
Imagine Luke doing shit like Starkiller does to the stormtroopers in the opening scene, that would be baller as fuck and probably one of the coolest moments in any star wars film. The calm way he handles everything would be perfect for an older Luke.
>one tree hill
>pretty little liars
>Bridget Jones diary
> knotting hill
Literally every show aimed at girls and women supports it.
On TV everything except parent hood had strong females from the start. Occasionally they got support from there friends when there was some trouble but no one was really flawed and learned things that changed them as human beings.
In movies Mean Girls, Pretty Woman, Knotting Hill also had females lead that were pretty together and didn't really change or grow at the end.
Parenthood yea, Bridget Jones yea, Bridesmaids yea, you were right about those and all the Julia Robert movies reminded me of Runaway Bride. Which I would say counts.
The rest are characters that either weren't flawed or didn't grow as characters buy the end of their journeys. But to be fair I'm not counting not liking a guy and then learning that he's not so bad as character growth.
I just want him to survive the entire new trilogy.
pls don't kill my Lukefu, Disney.
His powers won't be even be shown until maybe the third movie just to keep him in secrecy
its considered a sith power because its using the force to inflict pain which is against the nature of the force. jedi usually use the force for good and rarely use it to hurt others. the most youll see a jedi use it against other people are when they use force pushes or mindtricks. sith are all about inflicting pain (lightning, choking), so thats why those powers are considered sith powers. autismpedia will probably have something about needing to use hate and anger to use them as well, i dunno.
Remember when Darth Vader was all "NOOOOOOOOOOO" and crushed every piece of electronics in the room?
Yeah I'd like to see some more of that shit.
>taking autismpedia seriously
There's nothing stopping the Jedi from using force lightning, but as you said, it's mostly used to inflict pain on others so it's a quick way to the dark side.
It's not like either side unlocks specific powers like a video game.
Well it is kind of matronising and condescending having such characters being written because of politics and twitter zeitgeist. There is a risk of the fight for equality being co-opted and diluted too much.
>Luke is telling Rey about his Jedi Academy and the his daughter that was killed by Kylo when he killed the other padawan
>Rey has a force vision
>looks at Luke, extends her hand and says "Luke, I am your daughter" while looking at the camera and winks
My dream for viii is that Luke defeats all knights of Ren by fighting with 3 sabers levitating around him. His green one, anakins blue one, and Vader red one. He'd be force pushing n shit to, fighting seven people. It'd be great.
The light side version is called 'electric judgement' and Luke does use it at least in the EU.
>what awesome jedi powers do you think he'll have?
Whatever new awesome powers Rey teaches him, of course. Since she learns and masters Force techniques without even knowing about them or how to do them.
Sort of. The CANON has Force lightning only used by Sith. But the force choke has been used by Jedi and Sith both. The only Jedi to use it are Luke, Anakin and Offee Barriss (who turned against the Jedi)
Jesus Christ. What the hell is she even trying to say?
She reminds me of this chick I know who drinks a bottle of Old Grandad every Saturday night with a bunch of pills crushed up in it.
Yeah, now. But before his ass had to get into shape he looked pretty not-great.
>Those dark patches around his eyes
If he doesn't turn out to be Snoke, or at the very least a Dark Jedi, then I'll be surprised.
>inb4 "but the Sith are destroyed!"
>"I am not a Sith, they were weak. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy"
>All the Star Wars "fans" jumping straight onto Twitter with their reaction posts about how Luke is now a Darth Vader
jedi and sith can learn the same powers.
powers that are used to inflict pain and kill are used by sith (eg: lightning)
jedi prefer not to use them, but they can learn them if they want
Another cute young Mark Hamill thread?
Sure I'll start.
helluva f*ckin epic, thanks for lols (loughs out loud, seriosuly) my man
The only way this could be good is if something happens, she freaks out, and starts to throw a ship in her hysteria.
Maybe at that point Luke has to do a reverse tug of war with the ship or something.
This would show she really does have massive force potential, but would need training to utilize it.
If he fights with a lightsaber, I want him to be fighting telekinetically. Like, making the lightsaber fight for him while he just stands there doing something else like it's no big deal.
sigh. No she won't, fucking autists. She only did all that shit in VII because Luke clearly has taught her before.
It's like you scream at all the "turn off your brain" fags all day, but somehow turn your's all the way off. The film is practically screaming at you that Luke has already trained Rey and knows her.
Rye or whoever the fuck will probably get shot down over luke's planet and the machine crashes into a swamp/ocean and they think they'll die but then magically they get liffted up and then look out and there's luke standing there all badass.
>"I haven't done this in a looooong time"
Will there ever be a use of The Force as badass as this in the movies?
This is the impression I got too.
Like the reason she's amazing at all that stuff is because she was a student of his and had her memory wiped.
She definitely had her memory wiped of SOMETHING
Lucas' treatments which Disney rejected had Luke use something called "Force Shift" against a villain in the final fight, which is a two-part move where he disappears and reappears in a different place, like 'teleporting' at flash speed. He also used the term "Force Leap" which is like a Neo/Matrix super jump nearly the same as flying. Bigger than the flip Obi-Wan used against Maul
There was a rumor of drawings for a lightsaber duel in which things like this happen. They saved it for either VIII or IX.
>Now I am Yoda
why is this so fucking funny
he trained her as a fucking 3 year old and dumped her on a planet? do you realize how ridiculous you sound? she was trained as a toddler so it fixes everything? how does this make sense to you?
just have him be wise and old like yoda in empire.
he doesn´t need to some weird super hero like powers.
only think that comes even close that I can kinda see working is for him to constantly outsmart anybody and use jedi mind tricks
>Chewbacca fucks it up and Millenium Falcon drowns in ocean
>Luke picks it up, just like yoda did
P O E T R Y
You dumbfucks. If you actually needed the scene to be spelled out here it is. He mind rapes Ren because he is weak with the dark side, therefore he is weak in the force. While mindraping him she learns of the powers of the force, at least she knows how some powers are supposed to work.
Mindwiping is so anti-normie.
I thought that Jedi just didn't use offensive force powers like force choke and lightning. Throwing heavy shit at people is alright though...
They have the ability to do it, they just don't because it leads to the Dark Side.
I can see it now
>Kylo ren does some intense fucking training
>Rey and ren have a fair and even fight (only reason he lost to Rey before was because he was shit with a fucking bowcaster and he had just fought Finn who also wounded him AND he wasn't mentally stable considering he just killed his fucking dad
>Rey gets BTFO like Luke did in empire (POTTERY)
>Luke shows up, Kylo attacks him
>Luke catches the lightsaber blade
>Kylo shits himself
>Luke offers ren a chance at redemption
>ren pussies out and runs away
