Hamill suddenly switched gears to address Lucas' vision for the character.

However, in an interview with IGN, Hamill revealed that Lucas meant to kill off Luke at the end of "Episode IX" after he had trained his twin sister General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) the ways of the Force.

Speaking with IGN, the Luke star said: "I happen to know that George didn't kill Luke until the end of [Episode] 9, after he trained Leia. Which is another thread that was never played upon [in The Last Jedi]".

Luke may have become one with the Force at the end of The Last Jedi, but before selling the rights to Star Wars to Disney in 2012, Lucas had had other plans. Interestingly, Mark Hamill has revealed that things would have worked differently for Luke and his sister Leia Organa if George Lucas was still in charge in Episode IX. Kurtz revealed that Lucas originally didn't want Hamill's Luke and Carrie Fisher's Leia to be siblings, with the "you're definitely not related" reveal coming in the sixth movie (Return of the Jedi).

The parody trailer points out that even though "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" was all about "balance and non-attachment", it would be "worshipped, hated and obsessed over until it's not even fun to talk about anymore". Chief among them - The Force Awakens being an origin story for a young, female Jedi, the son of Han and Leia falling into a dark path, and the idea that Luke would put himself into exile following some tragedy.

With snark that serves as a commentary on both The Last Jedi and Star Wars fans themselves, Jon Bailey and Ted Evans take on the film's many gripes and revelations with just as much passion as people had back when they first saw it.
