Does Mark Hamill Spoil STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI in Old 1980 Interview with Gene Siskel?
If Star Wars: The Last Jedi follows one of the plot lines that George Lucas was planning back in the 1980s for a future Star Wars film, Mark Hamill may have spoiled one of the big reveals in an old interview with Gene Siskel.
It's weird to think that a spoiler for an upcoming film came from the 1980s, but it's certainly a possibility.
In the interview, which you can watch below, Hamill told Siskel that Lucas laid his Star Wars plan for the prequels and told Hamill to be ready because he had plans for Skywalker years down the road. He explained:
"George has talked to me very marginally about doing something at the turn of the century in the last trilogy, but it wouldn't be on the same plane of existence."
Siskel then cut him off and said, "What it sounds like is he offered you a job to play a father [with] a Luke Jr. around the year 2000." Hamill then shook his head in agreement and replied:
"You're a very clever man, Mr. Siskel."
So, the question is... is Luke Skywalker somehow a father in The Last Jedi? I have no idea, but tons of fans still believe that Luke is Rey's father. I don't know how that would all work, but Hamill does say that it wouldn't be on the "same plane of existence", so anything is possible!
It'll be interesting to see if this old plot point from Lucas will be included in The Last Jedi as the saga moves forward. What do you all think?
