Star Wars: The Force Awakens left us with a stunning visual of Rey (Daisy Ridley) holding a lightsaber out in offering to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on a gorgeous cliff side, where it left us hanging. So what are Luke’s first words to Rey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Not ‘Did you happen to find a hand with that?’ as I had previously guessed.
At an annual Disney shareholder meeting in Denver, many subjects were discussed. One of the biggest topics of course, was Star Wars. Bob Iger, Walt Disney Co.’s chairman and executive director, had a bit to say on the matter. First though, he honored Carrie Fisher and her memory with a touching tribute.
“Carrie Fisher has been an iconic part in this franchise from the very beginning,” he said. “We all miss her. She has great talent and wit. We’re proud that this movie coming up is part of her legacy.”
A clip was played for the shareholders, one that started with a joke and didn’t tell much about the new film. However, it did give us Luke’s first words to Rey. And that iconic, powerful phrase is……”Who are you?” The Force told him enough to be waiting up on a cliff looking all badass, but nothing else, apparently.
General Organa was also seen on screen shortly, and many different terrains and landscapes were shown. The clip was truly a teaser in every sense.
More importantly, at this same meeting Bob Iger told us something else about The Last Jedi, describing the film as “a perfect chapter in the iconic Skywalker family drama.”
I repeat, Skywalker family drama. Which means all of us ‘Luke is Rey’s father’ theorists may very well be right after all. But with a statement like that, it seems pretty obvious the two will definitely be related somehow, which many of us have guessed at since The Force Awakens.
So what do you think of these new developments? Had you already come to these conclusions yourself, and what are your current theories? Let us know in the comments!
