    Preparations in the spring and filming starts the end of July. Will he be a force ghost or is JJ bringing him back?!?!

    I'd know what I'd like it to be (Luke in Episode 9, exploration of what happens when someone becomes one with the Force) but the timing may just be to do with supporting the impending launch of the TLJ DVD/Blu-ray release. I think the timing may be off as well if he is needed for proper filming back on Skellig Michael, given the time of year.

    I think 2+2 , in this case, should be, around 4

    sorry, but no hopes there. probably the same baiting as when he had his contractual beard for much of TFA filming. We know how this ended. Baiting won't work for me anymore. Sadly I don't trust JJ and this is simply for marketing of TLJ home release. :(

    They prety much succeeded in making fandom much more caucious.
    Which is good.

    I think Kathleen and company didn't imagined Star Wars can fail, well if ep IX would be mediocre film they would make it happen.

    For that to not happen they need Luke, lot of Luke, and..paradoxically...redeemed Luke( he must redeem since they made him alomost a Kylo-creator).

    I think it's too early, the filming starts in July. I think @Chobbly might be right: if he isn't going privately, it might have something to do with Blu Ray release.

    On the other hand, I fully believe he would be in EPIX - as a Force ghost. JJ and Terrio will not miss the opportunity to write for Luke Skywalker, especially after already having a setup: "Strike me down in anger and I'll always be with you."

    Filming doesn’t begin until July so it’s unlikely his visit has anything to do with the film.

    That said, if he is brought back in the next film I hope he returns in a similar fashion to Gandalf the White in Lord of the Rings. Which means I want Luke to return to the physical world. The whole force ghost thing has been done before and it could take away the pathetic ending that he was given in TLJ.

    I don't agree that Luke's ending is pathetic as is, but I wouldn't mind a different take than him simply being a ghost. I think "Gandalf the White" is a pretty good analogy.


    I'd also note, just for fun, the twitter exchange between Mark/ Mike (;)) and James Gunn this morning, in which Hammil referred to himself as an "unemployed actor".

    I think Mark "Twitter Troll" Hammil might just have been toying around with the idea that while he apparently died in TLJ, he's probably coming back- and I think that's likely, even if it's just as a ghost. (yoda ghost)

    agree and I don't care for any force ghost Luke cameo at all. I doubt they will allow Luke to return in flesh, so ... It would take away from our super duper Rey....:(

    What if its meteorology?

    Maybe there around Skelling its time of the year with storms,waves,and they needed to do some shots in that weather ?Also there are mockups on the coast from previous filming which are slowly erroding,they need to use it while can.
    Also island is under UNESCO I think protection and filming time window is very limited.

    And that's the right way to go. This isn't the story about Luke Skywalker. It's about the new generation. Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo etc. If you want more Luke, then go and watch the OT.

    Luke Skywalker will return for IX (mainly because of Carrie Fisher's death), but he won't play a big part. He already had a major (and good) role in TLJ, so nothing more is needed. Focus on Rey and Kylo!

    I don't care for Rey or Kylo. Nothing in TLJ made me care for them. :(

    ...and I appreciate your opinion. So that's no reason to throw around negative ratings. IMO Kylo Ren is the best Star Wars character ever created. Do you know who is my second favorite? Luke Skywalker. TLJ made him even better for me, even though I'm not the biggest fan of TLJ.

    I did not give a negative rating and only expressed that I disagreed. That's just my oppinion.

    Kylo Ren is far from “the best Star Wars character ever created”

    While I think Ren is very good character and Adam Driver is a great actor, to say that Ren is the best SW character ever is borderline laughable. Also, TLJ was basically a character assignation of Luke Skywalker. Mark Hamill was right on the money with his comments before the film debuted. In no way did it make Luke better...Yes, that is just my opinion, but I think it is an opinion held by most fans.

    That's what Kathleen Kennedy and JJ/RJ thought to.
    It costed them 1/2 billion dollars at least,and its just the the first tremor.. .Millions want Luke's proper legacy to be defined by the end of trilogy,proper resolution of purpose of life of Luke Skywalker.Force ghost will do.

    Rey Returns to the Ahch-To, to settle things with the greatest Jedi galaxy has ever seen.

    JJ is more a Han fan, so I don't expect anything positive for Luke. But you are right, they lost a lot of money because of this mistake and they will lose more.
