The latest entry in the Star Wars franchise, The Last Jedi, is almost here, and fans are doing their best to try and figure out the film's mystery before its premiere on Dec. 15. As the sequel to 2015's The Force Awakens, and the eighth installment overall in the Skywalker saga, pretty much all eyes are on Luke Skywalker as the hero finally makes his proper return to the franchise after only appearing briefly — without speaking — at the end of The Force Awakens. But his return brings with it some worry among fans, as there are a number of theories about evil Luke in The Last Jedi.
The idea of Luke turning to the Dark Side is not exactly new, and even before The Force Awakens came out, the smart money among fans was that the movie would feature an evil Luke. That didn't come to pass in that film, but with The Last Jedi promising to tell much more of his story (while also being the longest Star Wars movie in history), those theories are ramping up once again. Little is known about the actual plot of The Last Jedi, but one thing that is known is that Luke trains Rey in the ways of the Jedi. Fans don't yet know how this training goes except what can be gleaned from the trailers (it doesn't look like it goes that great), nor do they know Luke's motivations for training Rey. The last fans knew, he wanted to be left alone, so is he just trying to mold her into an unstoppable weapon for his Dark Side agenda? Read on to see all the major theories fans are discussing about Luke being evil in The Last Jedi.
