When Luke Skywalker seems on Crait, many viewers had been stunned as he had apparently determined to remain on Achto Island and he had no method off the planet as his experience within the type of the Falcon had taken off and his X-Wing was beneath a number of ft of salt water and had been for years.
So many viewers would have requested how was he there?
The important thing reply was instantly apparent (although many viewers didn’t perceive they weren’t seeing the true Luke) – and that was his beard and hair had been all of the sudden brown when a matter of hours in the past, he was fairly the silver fox!
There was no method this was the true Luke however for those who did not get the ruse immediately, director and script author Rian Johnson added a number of different clues to assist the viewer work this out earlier than the large reveal by Luke.
Right here they’re:
- Luke’s ft don’t go away a crimson foot print on the salty floor however Kylo’s do.
- Luke’s ft motion makes no sound.
- No ash or mud settles on his particular person. And when he brushes some off his shoulder, there’s truly nothing there.
- No ash or mud settles on his saber BUT it does on Kylo Ren’s.
- Leia seems to grasp what is going on when Luke locations his hand on hers. It is a very delicate one and is maybe some what debatable.
- Luke’s saber is the truly identical because the one which Rey and Kylo simply Drive broke on Snoke’s ship. This nonetheless won’t truly be a clue for Kylo however it’s for the viewer. Why not a clue for Kylo? Rian Johnson has identified that “the reality is, we see the lightsaber cut up in half — Kylo sees a blinding flash of sunshine and is knocked unconscious, after which Rey takes the lightsaber away earlier than he wakes up.”
- Luke is youthful wanting with a brown beard – the identical look as when he and Kylo had been nose to nose on the Jedi Academy.
- There blades by no means truly contact. If Luke had of allowed this to occur, his ruse could be up.
- And at last, how did Luke get into the cave? There was no entrance for him, apart from the closed entrance door.
The actual query ought to be method did Kylo not see these indicators and work out Luke’s trick for himself?
He was blinded by his fury and anger.
