Mark Hamill Reveals Luke's 'Most Important Line' In The Last Jedi

If you thought Luke Skywalker's (Mark Hamill) mention that it's "time for the Jedi to end" was the lynchpin line of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, you'd be mistaken. 

Speaking with Good Morning America, Hamill spoke about how The Last Jedi will shock fans, and revealed which of Luke's lines is the most important in the upcoming film. 

"I think there are much bigger surprises in The Last Jedi. In fact, I think the most important line, I think, Luke says is, 'This is not going to go the way you think,'" Hamill explained. "And when I read the script, I was stunned."

Considering the context in which the line is delivered, it's easy to see why Hamill thinks its the most pivotal of Luke's in the whole of The Last Jedi. Viewers heard the bit of dialogue in two previously released promotional clips: it cropped up in the first full-length trailer for The Last Jedi and could subsequently be heard in the "Awake" television spot. In the latter video, Luke utters the line from the ground as thick sheets of rain fall over him, and we then see Rey (Daisy Ridley) hovering over him, wearing a grim look on her face. Rey pulls her lightsaber up to her chest in what appears to be a moment of victory over Luke, thus bringing an entirely new meaning to "the last Jedi." 

Later on in his interview with Good Morning America, Hamill also expressed his sincere appreciation to the new creatives behind the current Star Wars trilogy. "These films now are being made by people that were children when the first films came out," he said. "They're the generation that grew up as fans and now are in charge of the franchise. It's just wonderful to be associated with something that makes people so happy and is escapism."

Unfortunately, Luke may not experience that same sense of escapism in The Last Jedi

The film stars the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Benicio del Toro as a DJ, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma. Veteran Star Wars actors Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo collaborate to bring Chewbacca to life for the movie, acting alongside Timothy D. Rose as Admiral Ackbar, Mike Quinn as Nien Nunb, Simon Pegg as Unkar Plutt, and Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd as Lieutenant Connix. 

Here's the short but intruiging synopsis for The Last Jedi: "Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn, and Poe that unlocks more mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past."

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out on December 15.
