    Daisy Ridley interview....http://www.refinery29.com/2015/12/98808/daisy-ridley-star-wars-force-awakens-interview

    So when asked about what are the wildest rumors she's heard so far, this was her response. In context:

    What are the craziest theories you’ve heard?
    “The Kylo-Luke thing. [Ed. note: There is widespread speculation among fans that in the new film, Luke Skywalker is in fact the villain Kylo Ren.] I’m like, Kylo Ren is Adam Driver! Luke Skywalker is Mark Hamill! It literally makes no sense. To me, that is crazy. I have no idea where it comes from.”

    That’s been dispelled, no?
    “Well, no. I’m still being tagged on things in Instagram, like ‘Who thinks this is gonna happen? Twelve days until we find out if this is true!’ And I’m like, we’ve announced the cast!”

    Any others?
    “That [Luke] is not going to be in the film. He’s Luke Skywalker!”



    Encouraging words?

    I find it a bit silly that some people thought Luke wouldn't be in the film at all. The question, really, is how much he's in the film. And as for the Kylo/Luke theory... I have nothing to say. Haha. But I do like that Daisy is interested in the theories and keeping an eye on what people are saying. She really seems invested in the film and in interacting with the fans, to whatever extent that is possible. :)

    Considering Luke isn't on the poster and his face isn't seen in the trailer and Mark Hamill isn't doing talk shows, the casual fan naturally would assume this. For us hardcore fans, you have all of the above plus Makingstarwars telling us he's only a 2 second shot with no dialog.

    The way she answered the question, it sounds like "duh, of course! He's friggin Luke Skywalker!" To me, that means they've kept him a HUGE secret and not even MSW knows his role.

    My reaction to this - There are seriously people who think he's not in the movie at all?

    totally a moot point. the whole Kylo-Luke debate is pointless and honestly people are just reaching for stuff at this point. Relax. TFA is right around the corner. less than 2 weeks away.

    Not sure what your post means. The whole point is Daisy said the craziest two theories are 1. Kylo is Luke and 2. Luke isn't in the movie.

    The fact remains Mark Hamills face has yet to be shown officially, but every other prinicipal cast member has been seen.

    I don't think she would say it's a ridiculous theory if he only takes the saber at the end. She wouldn't have even brought it up.

    The fact that the marketing has omitted Luke is cringe worthy. The fact that no credible leak has Luke doing anything heroic is cringe worthy. Daisys interview gives us hope!

    that still doesn't give people the right to go making stuff up all willy-nilly. lol. I have faith in the producers and director to reveal Luke at the right time. Of course Luke is in the movie, we dont need Daisy to confirm that for us. Search your feelings, you know it to be true. :D

    To be fair, if you go to the bathroom at the wrong time during this movie, you'd probably miss his appearance completely.

    Well of course he's in the film! 2 second cameos count as still being in the movie, duh! They would NEVER do a Return If The Jedi sequel and not put Luke in it! They'd just put him in it as a 2 second voiceless cameo where he never does anything, never uses his green lightsaber, and never interacts with Han and Leia....but Luke not being in the film at all, that would just be craziness!

    Like I said above, I doubt she would say the rumors were crazy if he was only in it for 2 seconds.

    People think it can be that way because they're not thinking things all the way through. They see "Kylo is Luke" and jump on board without considering the unstated propositions contained in the information. Meaning, "Kylo is Luke" is the same as saying "JJ will completely ruin the story for a huge swath of fans!" If they could just see beyond the plain text, and perceive the subtext behind the plain text, you'd know that "Kylo is Luke" can't be true.

    Man MSW is playing tons of people like violins. I even suspect that JJ's recent interviews in which he bends over backward promising not to ruin anything is because he's seen the Han dies rumors and it's killing him to think people are thinking he's that big of a buffoon. Because "Han dies" "2 second Luke" people might as well be plainly saying "I think JJ is a complete buffoon who can't direct!" because that's what those two statements translate as.

    It only confirms what I already know. A recent interview with JJ was posted not long ago, and an article about the Force. Everything JJ says in those interviews I've already said on these boards. Like 10 different topics that I was discussing, JJ brought them up and said exactly what I had said. We're clearly on the exact same page. I even joked he must be reading my posts for talking points, because the things he said were in perfect synch with my posts. Not all of my posts mind you, but about 10 of them which had to do with major angels in the story. JJ is a Star Wars fan like me; and I am confident his vision is the same as mine- because it's what has to be. The road from here is pretty clearly laid out beforehand.
