    We're just 10 days away from The Last Jedi novelization from veteran Star Wars author Jason Fry, and the first sentence of the book has leaked... And it just might blow your mind! (Well, sort of.)





    SPOILERS for The Last Jedi novelization!


    <div data-tooltip='February 24, 2018 at 2:38:24 PM UTC+2']Reddit member OnNomAnor posted a photo on Reddit with the first sentence from the highly anticipated expanded edition of The Last Jedi novelization due for release on March 6. The person who shared this proved that he does have a copy of the novelization, so this is as real as it gets. The sentence reads:</div>
    <div data-tooltip='February 24, 2018 at 2:38:24 PM UTC+2']</div>
    <div data-tooltip='February 24, 2018 at 2:38:24 PM UTC+2']Before you get too excited, later he did confirm that this was from a dream sequence in the story and that Luke never actually had a wife. As he said: 'It's a what-if super short story that supports themes of the film'. This clarification was very important since many of us were pretty shocked when we just read the main post on Reddit.</div>

    <div data-tooltip='February 24, 2018 at 2:38:24 PM UTC+2']Worth noting is that Luke's wife in the scene has a name: Camie. For those of you hardcore Star Wars fans among us, you might recognize this as the name of one of Luke's friends in the deleted scenes of A New Hope. And there's a good reason why they make that specific allusion: this imaginary story is set in a world in which Luke gave up R2-D2 and C-3PO to the Empire and never became a Jedi. So no, they're not just doing this to troll those of us who wanted to see Mara Jade or something - this is a story about Luke thinking about the life he never had.</div>

    <div data-tooltip='February 24, 2018 at 2:38:24 PM UTC+2']</div>
    <div data-tooltip='February 24, 2018 at 2:38:24 PM UTC+2']</div>
    <div data-tooltip='February 24, 2018 at 2:38:24 PM UTC+2']

    Still it's a very intriguing opening line and I'm all the more interested in the novel for it. Hopefully, the book will really let readers into the mind of Luke Skywalker, revealing his inner thoughts and deeper motivations behind his actions in the movie. Mark did a fantastic job in the movie, but this is an advantage that the book medium has over film and I can't wait to experience it.

    </div>


    As you know The Last Jedi novelization will feature scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content, which makes it a must read. The decision to move the book's release after the release of the movie seems like a good move, since it's almost certain that it would have leaked earlier (as it happened just now) and many of the movie's twists would have lost their weight.



    March 6 can't come quick enough!

    It was just a dream. I don’t know why this is getting so much attention?

    What would really excite me is if Luke woke up after the events of TLJ and we discovered that entire film was just a dream.

    That would be the only option to bring me back for IX. I doubt it will happen. :(

    All in all the novel adds salt to the wound.

    Luke died alone, and he could have been family man.

    Also Leia blames not just Snoke, but Luke to, for what has her son become.

    Additional burdeon on Luke's soul for the end .

    RIP Luke Skywalker.

    Rest in peace Luke Skywalker. This guy called Luke in TLJ novel and movie is just an imposter. Maybe one day we will learn his real fate from the master George Lucas! :(

    Luke blamed himself, not Leia.

    Its all set and done, and clear now.

    I congratulate ReyLo team for (phyrric) Victory

    Luke has failed in life , and died alone.

    Leia has failed,Han has failed.

    Their son Ben, last of the Skywalker/Solo bloodline was soft and beautiful kid, jet within himself always a monster.

    From the childhood he had enormus power ,he destroyed things around the house,crushed everything, they segregated him(almost like Elsa from the Disney Frozen who had magic powers), like a weird thing.

    Novel says that Ben, as a child ,has heard how Leia and Han , his own parents, behind the door talk about him as a monster.

    He is lost, but the Rey is ultimate tool of the will of the Cosmic Force,another thing we learned from this novel.

    Rey has destiny to heal the beast, to make him man, and to bring balance by, obviously, crushing evil in him trough enormously powerfull bond, love.

    Its all reconstructed now . And I am deeply sad.

    Such high price payed, to get Galactic Titanic.

    This is the movie all over again: people judging it because someone leaked them the spoilers. Now they are judging the book, because someone leaked them the spoilers. Basically, judging the work of art through someone else's eyes, without any context within the grater story.

    yes, we get a full failure of Luke, even blamed by his own family. While we get overpowered super Rey who is not allowed to fail at anything. :(

    Not the ultimate truth.
