New Obi-Wan Kenobi Hot Toys Action Figure Comes with a Baby Luke Skywalker


Hot Toys has released a new action figure based on Ewan McGregor‘s Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars: Episode VII – Revenge of the Sith and it comes complete with a baby Luke Skywalker! We know that Lucasfilm is currently developing an Obi-Wan Kenobi film which is set after the events of Revenge of the Sith and before A New Hope. A lot of fans are excited to see what exactly that will end up being. In the meantime, this figure is a must own for any collector. This is Hot Toys’ most impressive young Obi-Wan figure that they’ve made yet.

“Bring balance to the force… not leave it in darkness!”

Mark Hamill Says George Lucas Didn’t Plan on Killing Luke Skywalker Until STAR WARS: EPISODE IX After He Trained Leia

Well, thanks to Mark Hamill, Star Wars fans can now continue to ponder what the Star Wars saga would have been had George Lucas‘ ideas been used. In a recent interview with IGN, Hamill revealed that Lucas didn’t plan on killing off Luke Skywalker until Star Wars: Episode IX… after he trained Leia!

“I happen to know that George didn’t kill Luke until the end of [Episode] 9, after he trained Leia.  Which is another thread that was never played upon [in The Last Jedi].”

The Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren Showdown From THE LAST JEDI Recreated in 16-Bit Greatness

I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up I loved playing the 16-bit Star Wars game on Super Nintendo. I wish those were included in the SNES Classic console! It would be so cool to see the current trilogy of films get similar playable games, but thanks to Mr. Sunday Movies we can at least get an idea of what it would look like if Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a 16-bit video game.

The video below was created by animator John Stratman and it focuses on the badass climatic moment of the film where we see Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren face off on the planet of Crait. This is easily one of my favorite moments of the movie, and this is a radical recreation of that scene that I think fans are going to love! Check it out!

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you’ll probably want to skip this because of spoilers.

Mark Hamill Says The Version of Luke Skywalker in THE LAST JEDI is “Not My Luke Skywalker”

It’s no secret that Mark Hamill wasn’t 100% satisfied with how Luke Skywalker was portrayed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. At one point he even said that he was insulted. Well, now that the movie has been released and people have seen it, he’s not changing his opinion. He still isn’t happy with how Luke Skywalker was portrayed in the movie and he even goes as far to say that “He’s not my Luke Skywalker.”

While doing an interview with JarJar Abrams, Hamill explained:

“I said to Rian, ‘Jedi’s don’t give up.’ I mean, even if he had a problem, he would maybe take a year to try and regroup. But if he made a mistake, he would try and right that wrong.”

He just doesn’t feel that Luke would have acted this way and I know a lot of Star Wars fans feel the same way. But, he goes on to say that he does understand that The Last Jedi wasn’t really a story about Luke Skywalker. It’s a story that focused more on a group of new characters and to tell that story, Luke needed to be something different than what Hamill had in his head. In the end, though, this isn’t his Luke Skywalker.

“This is the next generation of Star Wars, so I almost had to think of Luke as another character. Maybe he’s Jake Skywalker. He’s not my Luke Skywalker, but I had to do what Rian wanted me to do because it serves the story well.”

I’ve been seeing a lot of fans debating over Luke Skywalker’s portrayal in The Last Jedi. I have to say that I found it interesting that Hamill said Jedi don’t give up because they totally do! Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda both pretty much gave up and went into hiding just like Luke did. For years they really didn’t do that much to help combat the Dark Side. Yoda was also reluctant to train Luke like Luke was reluctant to train Rey. They just had different reasons. So, Hamill doesn’t really make the strongest argument.

Anyway, what do you think about Hamill’s comments on Luke Skywalker? Do you agree with him or not?

Mark Hamill Completely Disagreed with Rian Johnson’s Take on Luke Skywalker in THE LAST JEDI

This week marks Star Wars 40th Anniversary and Vanity Fair has given us an inside look at the upcoming The Force Awakens sequel, The Last Jedi. And for most fans of Star Wars this sequel is very important because, for the first time since Return of the Jedi, we will have LOTS of Luke Skywalker (if you don’t count the seconds he appears in The Force Awakens.) Many fans have a certain expectation of what Luke may be like in his later years. They are of course basing it on what they have seen him do in the previous films. Certainly Luke himself, Mark Hamill is one of those ‘fans.’ In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Hamill recalls the first time he read through The Last Jedi script:

Luke Skywalker Confirmed to be The Last Jedi in STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII

When the title of Star Wars: Episode VIII was revealed to be The Last Jedi, fans began to discuss and speculate what that actually means. Who is the last Jedi!? Is the word Jedi meant to be singular or plural!? Director Rian Johnson was amused by the kind of discussions that fans were having regarding the title, and if you’re still waiting for a definitive answer, we have one for you today. During an interview with Good Morning America, the director confirmed that the title refers to the one and only Luke Skywalker. He says:

“It’s so funny when people started asking that when the title was announced because I never even pondered that question… In my mind its singular. They say in The Force Awakens that he’s gone on to find the last Jedi temple. Luke is the last Jedi.”
