There’s talk that Luke Skywalker might be gay!
Will Luke Skywalker be gay in the next Star Wars?
Is the reason why after Han Solo got Leia, that the lack of a love interest for Luke resulted to him being a homosexual? The original trilogy focused more on Han Solo and Leia’s romantic relationship, and Luke had focused more on being a good jedi. Also aren’t jedis supposed to be celibate?
The Episode VIII writer and director, Rian Johnson, might have thought about the chance of Luke being gay. Mark Hamill has said that his character being gay is possible.
“They say to me, ‘Could Luke be gay?’ I’d say it is meant to be interpreted by the viewer.”
This fact would hurt the theory that Rey could be Luke’s daughter.
The Force Awakens director and Star Wars VIII executive producer JJ Abrams had commented that he wants to see an openly gay in the franchise.
“When I talk about inclusivity it’s not excluding gay characters,” he said. “It’s about inclusivity. So of course.”
