    Young Luke. The first 19 years of his life must have been so boring. It gives me the impression that he was scolded by his uncle and aunt on a regular basis.
    Don't get me wrong. I love Luke as a character. But you have to forgive me for thinking that his early years were a total waste. And that's part of his character development. He was underachiever on all fronts until he leaves Tatooine. Creating a movie of him accomplishing great things during his youth would totally break the character.

    Agreed, that must have been the reason. However, I always wondered ... if they wanted to protect him and keep him away from the Empire's eyes, why did they allow him to keep Skywalker as his last name?
    Not sure if this was discussed in another thread, but my theory is that this was done against Kenobi's will. Owen and Beru accepted Luke in their family, but didn't accept naming him Luke Lars, which must have been Kenobi's original intention. The Lars might have not grasp the potential risk and burden that came with Skywalker name, as they lived so far away from the center of the galaxy / imperial domain. Owen didn't do this for Anakin, but for Shmi. He had lived with her step-mom for several years and according to the Episode II novelization, he had very good relationship with her. He loved her and even use to call her "mom" if I recall the early chapters of that book correctly. So, although Beru reminds Owen that Luke has too much of his father in him, for Owen, Luke must have reminded him of her beloved step-mom Shmi Skywalker, and decided to honor Luke's grandmother's last name.
    Although I still maintain than Luke's early years must have been pretty boring, the only thing that I'd really want to see would be the relationship between Owen and Kenobi. ANH made it clear that these two were already in pretty bad terms after 19 years. I can see them disagreeing in multiple things. Perhaps Kenobi's original intention was to take Luke to Dagobah for Jedi training at a reasonable age, but Owen didn't allow it. And for some reason, Kenobi was forbiddlen to use Jedi mind tricks on Luke's foster parents.
    Not enough to justify a stand-alone movie, but it can still be portrayed as a small cameo either in Rebels or the Young Han Solo movie (Han may visit Tatooine for Jabba/Mos Eisley reasons, Chewie may meet Kenobi for the first time, and that could lead to a small Kenobi-Owen argument in the cantina). So there is some hope there.

    To me. Boba Fett and Yoda movies are not a good idea. The reason those characters are so beloved is partially because of the mystery that surrounds them. I have no problem with them showing up in supporting roles in other films but I don't need them to be a main focus of a movie. I'm sure both films will be done at some point, but I'm sure there are better projects that should be made first.

    Boba Fett is likely going to be the next Star Wars Story after Han Solo. I wouldn't mind seeing a rivalry blossom between Boba and Han. I think that could be the best way to use him.
