What are Luke Skywalker's Jedi Trials

Star Wars 8 - That's why Luke Skywalker has to be the last Jedi

After the official title of Star Wars: Episode VIII was revealed, speculation has risen as to who is actually meant by The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the official title of the new episode VIII from the star saga, as it became known yesterday, Monday. Cinemablend now speculates that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) could be the eponymous last Jedi. The assumption is based on the assumption that Luke has no interest in teaching the teachings of the Jedi to Rey (Daisy Ridley), who was introduced in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. A look at earlier events leads to a comprehensible explanation. The page initially refers to the representation of the Jedi Order in the prequel trilogy.

In fact, the Jedi show themselves here as an almost religious community with political power, which tries to suppress any emotions and gives the impression of being above things and the population. Even the proposal of a military coup against the Galactic Senate is up for debate, as is the execution of an enemy without a trial. Emotions and peace, so the ideology, could not coexist. A Jedi should not even take time to mourn loved ones who have died, as Yoda (Frank Oz), leader of the Jedi Council, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) once suggested in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

Because even these basic feelings led to the dark, emotionally motivated side of the Sith. Luke Skywalker, on the other hand, often did not listen to Yoda's teachings and was guided by those same emotions. In The Empire Strikes Back, he comes to the aid of his friends after his mentor advised him to stay with him and train, leaving them to the deadly clutches of Darth Vader (voice: James Earl Jones). Yoda believes the fear of death leads into the arms of the Sith. With the conviction that feelings are nothing terrifying, and the motivation of love, Luke manages in Return of the Jedi, however, to bring his father Anakin back from the form of Darth Vader.

Ultimately, this led to Luke Skywalker's success against the dark side. At the end of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, we finally see the Jedi with Rey at the location of the first Jedi Temple, according to Cinemablend. Accordingly, Luke, strengthened in the conviction that the path of the Jedi like the Sith was not the right one, possibly looked for a new lesson between those opposing sides. This could explain the title Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi. Luke teaches Rey on this new path and remains the last, "true" Jedi. The prophecy told at the beginning of the prequel trilogy about someone who would restore the balance of power, it could ultimately be about Rey and her new path in dealing with power. We have more speculation here for you as to who the last Jedi will be.
