CLASSIC ART: THE FORCE AS THEIR ALLY!
It was the scene for EPISODE VIII that we were all hoping for but sadly proved not to be: the no longer exiled Luke Skywalker joining forces with the light side powerful Rey against the evil of Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order. It was a storytelling direction that clearly didn't interest VIII's bold writer/director Rian Johnson, instead taking the Jedi and Jedi-to-be's journey into an altogether more complex, darker, different direction. But who knows, maybe the more feel good action-packed extravaganza/Skywalker family wrap-up of the upcoming EPISODE IX may redress the balance a bit.
Worst case scenario, perhaps in the future MARVEL COMICS could do one of those great alternate SW universe stories, like the Infinities trilogy done with Dark Horse, all of which were excellent and thought-provoking.
Great 2017 fan art from David Demaret.
