    Plus it would just be plain weird if it appeared that time stood still for 35 years and he came off as a completely unchanged person after living a whole other lifetime.

    Not to mention they'd have to somehow write darktroopers or battle droids of some kind into the ST so that Luke can do that hacking through machinery like butter, conscience free thing.

    Please don’t lump me in with “all” in your statement. I thought Luke was pretty well iconically portrayed in TLJ, rising to become arguably the most powerful Jedi we have ever seen....

    I liked his TLJ portrayal too. To me, it fit well with the movie's theme of overcoming failure.

    I stand and confirm the "all" as in majority, u have the right of having your opinion about the sequels.

    I hate his portrayal in TLJ because thats not who Luke is to me, but If some people like it then who am I to judge them for it, but to me, The Post-ROTJ Luke from the EU is the one I have a much stronger attachment to.

    Nobody is wrong to like any version of Luke Skywalker, but criticising someone because they like one or the other is not okay.

    I stand and confirm that you have no scientific way of measuring “the majority” in this situation.

    I also stand behind and confirm that a vocal minority online is not classified as a majority, and far from indicative of the real world.

    Agree, though not recognizing that the majority of the fans did not like how Luke was portrayed, that I can criticise.

    Claiming without proof that the majority of fans did not like how Luke was portrayed can be criticised

    Yeah, it's hard to claim for sure which group is the majority in instances like these. It's impossible to survey every fan, and then things can get muddy with usernames, anonymous accounts, etc. It's not wrong to like or dislike either version, both are valid and potential paths, depending on situations and choices. And everyone has their reasons for enjoying it. Some found hope in the mando appearance and Jedi Master Luke, and some were able to find hope in TLJ Luke and what he went through. It's ultimately a personal thing in that regard.

    Meanwhile, I feel like the weird one. I didn't get emotional when I saw Luke. maybe because I was spoiled on it (I was working and glanced and saw Mark post his "see anything good on tv", and I thought nothing of it and then saw someone had posted the image), or maybe I just..idk. I think I said it before, but It only felt surface-ly like Luke to me. Like the appearance was all there, but something just felt off, and I, I think I wanted more to it than what we got. Happy for the people that loved the full thing though and got to see what they were hoping to see with Luke.

    And yeah, if Luke showed up in the sequels like this, then the story would've ended up more his story than Rey's, Ben's, Finn's, anyone's. and if I remember correctly, that was Arndt's and JJ's issue when working on the script. To them, Having Luke at all kept shifting the story to focus on him.

    You can like something. You can hate something. I can like something. I can hate something.

    Anything other than that, i.e. making statements like "We all know that XXXXXX" ..... or ..... "It's obvious a majority of people XXXXXXX" are ALSO speculation.

    Period.
