STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Actor Mark Hamill On The Possibility Of Luke Skywalker Turning To The Dark Side

A certain line in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser has let to speculation that Luke might be heading down a darker path. Find out what Mark Hamill has to say about that after the jump...

Friday's first teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi avoided giving too much away about the movie's plot (as a teaser should), but the last line spoken by the returning Luke Skywalker has had fans speculating that a turn to the dark side might be on the cards for the reclusive Jedi.

Though it does look like Luke will agree to train Rey, the line "it's time for the Jedi to end" certainly has some potentially ominous connotations, and might suggest that the son of Anakin Skywaler wants the Jedi to end, as opposed to simply fearing that their time has come.

During an interview with ABC, Mark Hamill commented on the reaction to the teaser, and says he was as surprised as the rest of us when he read that particular line in the script:


"There's a difference between teaser and a trailer. A teaser is supposed to show you dynamic images that heighten your awareness and make you want to see the trailer, but avoid all story points if at all possible. [But] I think that's the only story point that’s in the teaser, which is Luke saying it's time for the Jedi to end. It was as shocking to me to read what Rian [Johnson, the director] had written as I'm sure it will be for the audience."

When asked outright if he thought Luke could ever turn to the dark side, Hamill responded: "It's possible, anything's possible."

What do you guys think? Is Luke ultimately destined to be Rey's enemy in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, or is this just a massive red herring? Sound off below.
