New Star Wars: The Last Jedi clip shows Luke boarding the Millenium Falcon


Game Seven of the World Series was not a fun night for most folks in Los Angeles. I was reared a San Francisco Giants fan, but living in LA and it being 29 years since the Dodgers won the series, I was trying to be supportive of the hometown team. Oh well. There was, however, one moment of relief for Star Wars fans when a new clip of Star Wars: The Last Jedi aired during the game. There isn’t a whole lot new to it, but there is one kind of critical part that will make us old timers woozy:

Did you see it? The part where Luke boards the Millennium Falcon? *squee* Of course, I’ve imagined the entire in my head based on that four second blip we’re shown. As I’ve mentioned, my indifference to The Force Awakens has left me apathetic to The Last Jedi. However, I am a long-time Star Wars Universe fan and I eat up these dramatic throwback moments. I’ll likely watch just to see Luke come back, for which we apparently have Harrison Ford to thank. According to Mark Hamill, he only said yes to coming back to The Force Awakens and beyond after Harrison signed on. Mark said he was scared to return because the idea was “so enormous.” And he was pretty sure Harrison wouldn’t come back because “he’s too old and too rich and too cranky,” which might just be the best description of Harrison ever. Once Harrison signed on, Mark knew he had to. “Can you imagine if I was the only one to say no? I’d be the most hated man in nerd-dom.” Well, he’s not wrong.

I’ll admit that my heart sinks when I see these clips. I get bummed because (SPOILER for The Force Awakens) Han’s dead and then I remember that this will be the last time Carrie Fisher will appear as Leia – I need the original Luke AND the original Lando Calrissian to get me through this, man. There’s still time for me to see Billy Dee Williams and his epic cape, though. Kathleen Kennedy has recently said we can plan on at least 10 more years of Star Wars movies.

    Carrie Fisher will always be Top. So sad we won’t get to see the entire original version of this trilogy because her untimely death had them change the story.
    I’m a purist, ugh it’s too early for these nerd tears 😂

    Hecate? Can we be friends? I feel the same way. I’ve been a fan since 1977 (but I would never buy a t-shirt that said so!). So excited to see Luke on the Millennium Falcon although he looks like a reluctant passenger. I cry every time I see Carrie in the behind the scenes footage when she says, “It’s about family.” I too will miss Harrison but I know he wanted out for a long time. I am impressed with Adam Driver’s acting. Bad acting on his part would have taken down Force Awakens. Did you go to the Star Wars Convention in Anaheim? Mark said if he had said no, thousands of fans would have shown up on his lawn with light sabers like torches. There was not an option to say no. Looks like he is having fun though and is enjoying the spotlight.

    OH MY GOD I AM SO PUMPED FOR THIS MOVIE. I am HERE for grumpy old man Luke. I want him yelling at Rey to get off his lawn. I want him complaining about his joints when she wants to lightsaber train. I want him to cover up his grief about Han by complaining to Chewie about how the cockpit smells like wet Wookiee. But mostly, I want him to reunite with his sister, so they can both be old and crotchety together and rant about these young kids not valuing the wisdom of their mentors and causing so many problems.

    I am also studiously avoiding that Adam Driver post because I don’t want to be spoiled about Rey, though I will say I’m going to be legit annoyed if she really is Luke’s daughter.
