When The Force Awakens was released 2 years ago, everyone waited for that scene when we finally see Luke Skywalker. But when we finally see Mark Hamill‘s Luke, he has no dialogue and it’s at the very end of the film.
Arriving on his planet in exile, Ahch-To, Rey approached him with his father’s blue lightsaber.
Believe it or not, this wasn’t entirely the original ending for the movie, as Hamill has now revealed.
In an interview with Mtime, the actor explained how it was changed due to contradicting plans for The Last Jedi.
Hamill said: “When we were doing [The Force Awakens], Rian [Johnson, The Last Jedi director] said, ‘Oh and by the way we might have a couple of boulders floating to show your Force emanating’.
“So I was led to believe that I still had the Force and it was really strong in me.
“When I read [The Last Jedi] before VII came out, I said ‘what?’ and called JJ [Abrams, The Force Awakens director] or Rian to say, ‘Are you guys aware of this? Have you seen a cut? Is there floating boulders?’
“And they said, ‘No, we caught that and we worked it all out’.”
So there you have it. Do you guys wish that the boulder scene stayed in the final cut?
