'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' will settle the mystery of Rey's parentage

Any morsel of Star Wars-related news gets people on the internet excited. Advice on which characters should live and which should die? When asked if Lucas still offers ideas about the new Star Wars films, Kennedy said "not really", but did admit that Lucas sometimes offered insight about "something specific or important to him about Jedi training".

The inner workings of the Jedi Order backpinned The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith.

"Not really. But he'll whisper in my ear every now and then". You might say they were too significant, with multiple lengthy scenes of wrinkly aliens in robes sitting in a circle and debating about proper procedure. Reportedly, the 66-year-old actor ended up referring to "Star Lord", the nickname for Peter Quill (Pratt), as "Star Wars".

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi has a December 15, 2017 release directed by Rian Johnson starring Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Benicio Del Toro". It sees Rey returning Luke the lightsaber of his family and the former is completely shocked when he finds out that Luke does not want to return to the fight.

"I think he's starting to settle into this and just be a fan", she continues. "It's taken a while".

Letting go to something you have created which was lasted an entire career over the span of decades is hard to do. And even though he made a few snide comments about the The Force Awakens, which he later retracted, it seems like George Lucas is settling into the idea that Star Wars is in the hands of another generation, at least in terms of its future.
