    All rumors so far seem to be pointing to Luke having disappeared sometime after the destruction of the second Death Star. Some of these rumors say that Luke disappeared immediately after ROTJ, yet some maintain that he did some work rebuilding the Jedi order for upwards of 10 years before exiling himself.

    If he did in fact go missing, either by his own will or someone else's- where is he?

    Did he exile himself on Degobah like Yoda did? Another possibility is that there are still enemies of the Jedi out in the universe and he could be being held captive...

    Is it December 2015 yet?

    He was captured, escaped, and now he's hiding out.

    The term "Luke has been missing (insert arbitrary amount of years here) is incredibly ambiguous.

    Thankfully, the film will show us what's up (if this is even true to begin with). Though I do think the rumors that he's been "somewhere" for ten years makes far more sense...mainly because if he just up and disappears after ROTJ, then we literally have no Luke and no new Jedi to discuss in the new EU that has 30 years to play with.

    Pretty sure that's not happening.

    I like the thought that luke is bit messed up after killing his own father. Leigh sees vader as a murderer . And Jedi and sith are outlawed in new republic or empire. People blame the Jedi as mush as the sith and this is why he has gone into hiding. But something happens where his help is needed. And he has the chance to redeem the Jedi order

    do you guys Think Luke will be the first thing mentioned in the text in the opening crawl?

    One rumour said that the Movie will be about Luke , but we will not get to see him that much, instead we will see a lot of Han Solo, possibly searching for him.

    For me it makes sense that he could be hiding if the empire knows he is a great threat, maybe on Dagobah were he could be studying the deepest mysteries of the force

    It makes less sense if the empire sees him as a big threat & has captured him & not killed him, unless the rumoured dark side entity voiced by Max Von Sydow has him captured & tries to break him & get him to join the dark side

    Is that more from your insider or your own speculation. Either way keep up the good ideas!

    Luke Skywalker is in self-imposed exile, so as to not endanger the galaxy by his presence. He is struggling with the aftermath of having killed his own father, his own brush with the Dark Side of the Force, and Yoda's words, Pass on what you have learned...

    Why would Luke be conflicted about killing his father?

    1. He accomplished the goal of returning him to the light side of the force.

    2. He didn't kill him.

    You guys watched ROTJ, right? Serious question.

    Sorry. It would have made a mark I think. And it would keep vader very much in the story. There must be a big difference between Luke and Leigh over vader. She never saw his compassion like Luke did. He forced her to watch destruction of her world

    Because killing your own father might cause a little psychological damage?

    Luke is probably the only person who saw that side of vader. The rest of the universe lived in fear of him. That must be heavy burdon for luke to carry. And would be a reason for him being reclusive.

    Yes, the galaxy has no reason to trust the Jedi either. Could be part of the new trilogy's arc, gaining back the trust of people. Or not. Personally I don't need more Jedi stuff, especially after the inanity on display in Ep III
