George Lucas' Original Ending for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" Revealed

There is little doubt that George Lucas had big plans for Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa in the current Star Wars trilogy.

Luke Skywalker is no longer the optimistic Jedi he was once when he was thirty years ago Now he's just a bitter old man living out his days on a deserted island.

In relation to Rian Johnson, who directed The Last Jedi, Hamill commented: "Rian didn't write what happens in IX - he was going to hand it off to, originally, Colin Trevorrow and now JJ [Abrams, who also helmed The Force Awakens]".

So not only was Luke supposed to die at very end of the Skywalker saga, but he was going to train Leia to be a Jedi. "Which is another thread that was never played upon [in The Last Jedi]". We did, however, see her use the Force to save her own life in the film. Kurtz revealed that Lucas originally didn't want Hamill's Luke and Carrie Fisher's Leia to be siblings, with the "you're definitely not related" reveal coming in the sixth movie (Return of the Jedi). Hamill suddenly switched gears to address Lucas' vision for the character.

In 1999, Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz dished up some seriously juicy details on Lucas' plans for the nine movies as they were laid out before 1980.

The parody trailer points out that even though "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" was all about "balance and non-attachment", it would be "worshipped, hated and obsessed over until it's not even fun to talk about anymore". The actor doesn't say.

One of Star Wars' most iconic scenes initially starred Mark Hamill with Luke's original last name, according to the actor.

Following the tragic death of Fisher back in December after filming her final scenes as Leia, Hamill revealed he doesn't know whether he will be returning as a Force Ghost in Episode IX.
