It’s the question on every ‘Star Wars’ fan’s mind: what happens to Luke Skywalker in ‘The Force Awakens.’ Is he dead? Is he a droid? Is he really Tupac Shakur? Fans excited to see the new movie are using the Force to come up with some outrageous theories over Luke’s fate. Click to see!
The lack of Mark Hamill, 64, has caused a great disturbance in the Star Wars universe. While fans clearly saw Han Solo (Harrison Ford, 73) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher, 58) in trailers and posters for The Force Awakens, Luke Skywalker’s fate remained a mystery! Some fans, however, might have come up with the answer to what happened to the Jedi. Remember: No spoilers!
Would you believe that Luke turns out to be a “large dog in a trench coat” during The Force Awakens? Or that he might really be C-3PO? Could he finally do what The Force Awakens director, J.J. Abrams, couldn’t do and explain the ending to LOST? Fans eager to see the brand new Star Wars movie just could not wait until opening day to pose ideas about Luke’s fate.
After all, Star Wars fans want answers! Luke wasn’t seen in any of the trailers. He was also noticeably absent on the official poster for The Force Awakens, but some actually wondered if he was secretly behind the mask of Kylo Ren instead of Adam Driver.
With no Skywalker in sight, many feared he was dead. One fan suggested he’s been dead the whole time (shades of The Sixth Sense.) Others playfully said that Raven-Symone would use her reported psychic abilities to help Luke in the new movie, or that Luke would graduate from King’s College to become a “Master Jedi.” One thought Luke would somehow got turned into Tupac Shakur. Well, anything’s possible in the Star Wars universe.

Of course, whatever happens to Luke in The Force Awakens, it won’t be as humiliating as getting crushed to death by an AT-AT. When the Star Wars: Battlefront video game was released, one player tried to attack the Jedi Master. Cue General Ackbar (“It’s a trap!”) because Luke gets suckered and ultimately, squished to death!
Though what Luke has been up to since Return Of The Jedi may be explained in The Force Awakens, what Mark has been doing is already known: he’s been helping sick kids feel better! Mark brought a cast of fan-favorite Star Wars characters to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles to bring smiles to some ill boys and girls. Talk about using the Force for good!
What do you think happens to Luke, HollywoodLifers?
