Thanks to a recent post on the international marketing materials for Star Wars: Episode VIII, there’s been speculation that The Last Jedi could apply to Luke Skywalker—whom we saw at the end of The Force Awakens—as well as some other knights. The exact number of Jedi in the sequel, which we’re hoping to get at least a trailer for today, is far from confirmed, but we do know they’ll continue to operate in a universe infinitely less smooth than the original. While at one of the Star Wars Celebration’s panels, Billy Dee Williams said he won’t be playing Lando Calrissian in The Last Jedi.
