Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which hits theaters Dec. 15, will have its first-ever duel between two Jedi Masters.
The duel will take place on “The Force Awaits,” an episode of “Star Wars Rebels,” according to the synopsis on the official Star Wars Twitter account.
Luke Skywalker (Adam Driver) will face off against his former apprentice, Kylo (Mark Hamill), and Han (Anthony Daniels) will take on Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac).
In the teaser trailer, it’s unclear if the duel will feature a lightsaber fight, or Rey and Finn battling with a lightsaber, but the showrunners of “Rebels” have hinted at that.
A second teaser trailer showed Finn and Rey engaged in combat against a lightsaber wielding Luke Skywalker and Kylo, and it’s still unknown what will happen next.
“The Last Knight” was written by Chris Weitz and directed by Lawrence Kasdan.
The Force is with you, The Force is With You, and the Force is In Your Life, says Luke Skywalker.
He is the son of a Jedi Knight and the first son of the Sith Lord Darth Vader.
When Luke was young, he had his first lightsaber.
As a young boy, he learned the ways of the Force.
As he grew older, he trained to become a Jedi.
But it was not enough to save him from Darth Vader’s evil.
He had to return to his father’s side, to protect his own.
The dark side had taken over his mind, and he could not save himself.
The Force was with him, and in his life, he found redemption.
Luke’s redemption begins with his father, Darth Vader, being killed by Luke’s uncle, Darth Maul (Anthony Rapp), who is the father of the young Kylo.
Luke’s father is killed, and Luke has to make his way back to his family and the Jedi Order to learn the way of the dark side of the force.
His uncle, a young man named Kylo Ragnos (John Rhys-Davies), takes on the role of Luke’s mentor.
Kylo is a powerful Jedi Master, but his teachings are outdated and dangerous.
Kylos way of teaching is to sacrifice himself to save others, and to kill in order to save them.
Luke has been trained by Kylo to kill with the Force, and this is how he learns the dark arts.
Kyla is a kind and loving person who believes in giving back to others.
Luke and Kyla fight together in a quest to save the galaxy from a dark force, and find their own path to redemption.
A New Beginning is on Netflix and the Walt Disney Animation Studios.
