Mark Hamill says 'it's possible' Luke goes to dark side in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

Michael Rothman
ABC News
April 14, 2017

Quote:
Today, the first teaser for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" dropped and the thing that stuck out for fans was Luke Skywalker's quote at the end that the "Jedi must end." ...

As for if Luke would ever turn to the dark side, [Hamill] said, "It's possible, anything's possible." ...

I like the speculation that Luke rejects the Jedi order because it causes an imbalance in the Force, and founds a new order that IS balanced.

or The Jedi Must End the Reign of Terror
or The Jedi Must End the Seduction of the Dark Side
or The Jedi Must End [fill in the appropriate blank but not the one in which the Skywalker goes to the dark side]

Would Yoda ever become the partner of Darth Vader?

Did Mark Hamill Ruin 'Last Jedi' Twist in 1980s Interview With Gene Siskel?

Ryan Parker
The Hollywood Reporter
April 25, 2017

Quote:
Odds are, the story has completely changed, but who knows for sure.

Ah! Decades-old spoiler alert!

Mark Hamill may have spilled the beans about his iconic Star Wars character years ago while doing an interview with the late film critic Gene Siskel around the time Return of the Jedi was released.

In the unearthed interview, Hamill said George Lucas explained to him his layout for the prequels and also told Hamill to be ready, because he had plans for Skywalker many years down the road.

More, with video clips
