Mark Hamill Reveals An Alternate Ending For J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS

Star Wars: The Force Awakens ended with Rey confronting Luke Skywalker but Mark Hamill has now revealed that things were originally set to wrap up in a very different way. Hit the jump for details...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens ended with one of the biggest cliffhangers in movie history as Rey finally found Luke Skywalker and held out his father's lightsaber to him before the credits started rolling. However, it turns out that director J.J. Abrams originally had a very different plan which would have actually contradicted what Rian Johnson had in store for the fan-favourite character in The Last Jedi

"When we were doing [The Force Awakens]," Mark Hamill recalls, "Rian said, ‘Oh and by the way we might have a couple of boulders floating to show your Force emanating’, so I was led to believe that I still had the Force and it was really strong in me." That would have made for a cool visual but we know that Johnson asked Abrams to make some changes to the movie when he was hired, including having R2-D2 accompany Rey to Ahch-To instead of BB-8 (who instead remained with Poe Dameron).

"When I read [The Last Jedi] before 7 came out, I said ‘what?” and called J.J. or Rian to say, ‘Are you guys aware of this? Have you seen a cut? Is there floating boulders?’" Hamill continues. "And they said, ‘No, we caught that and we worked it all out’." Do you think The Force Awakens would have been better with this alternate ending? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts down below.
