Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Breznican gets a little overwrought writing about Luke and Leia and if they’ll reunite in The Last Jedi. The article doesn’t say, but why even tease it in your big Lucasfilm-participating cover story if they won’t?
More intriguingly, the article also explores a bit of Luke’s mindset:
“Luke longs to have that extended family that he established in the original trilogies, but now he’s at a place in his life and in his history where he’s shunned all of that,” Mark Hamill says. “The big question is why didn’t he respond to Leia during [The Force Awakens]? There’s a lot of things you can’t answer until you see this movie.”
