Were Luke and Leia Supposed to Be Siblings When They Kissed in Empire Strikes Back? | HuffPost
A few months back, I did a piece on Comics Should Be Good about the moments during the Star Wars comics where Luke and Leia kiss. They first appeared in 's Star Wars: A New Hope and both characters Star Wars Deleted Scenes Luke Leia Kiss .. Because of that hologram, Luke's life changes forever: he goes on to become a Jedi and help Leia. solo a star wars story han and qira I'm no relationship Jedi, but I can tell you that these Star Wars lessons have helped me out Leia to Han.
Vader would use Luke's devotion to his sister as a catalyst toward his anger, threating to turn Leia if Luke wouldn't. After the second Death Star, Luke joins the rebels in their ultimate victory against Empire.
Luke and Leia lovingly embrace each other as brother and sister. Around 30 years after the Empire's defeat, Luke seemingly abandoned his sister under his grief and guilt of failing her son. Despite this, Luke eventually apologized for everything that happened to Leia in result of himself not being present. Leia easily forgave him and was just glad that he was with her, proving her boundless love for him.
Shortly after Luke sacrificed himself for the Resistance, Leia mourned over his death, but Rey told her that Luke found purpose in his passing.
Luke taught Ben the ways of the Light Side of the Force and lightsaber combat. Unfortunately, Luke made a mistake by contemplating and nearly considering killing him upon sensing how strong his connection to the Dark side of the Force is and this proved to be extremely disastrous, as Ben's former faith in his uncle was shattered and he became known as Kylo Ren and his by his fellow Jedi as they would later become members of the Knights of Ren who were some of Luke's own apprentices he had turned, he killed most of Luke's apprentices; this act greatly delayed his uncle's plan to restore the Jedi Order to it's former glory and left his uncle despondent, while Ren went on to terrorize the galaxy as a leader of the First Order.
Luke was the only one who managed to survive and escape the Jedi massacre. In the aftermath of the Jedi massacre, Luke was deeply grieved and wracked with guilt, blaming himself for his students' deaths, Ben and his other students' turn to the Dark side.
Luke then mysteriously disappeared; as he embarked on a quest to seek out the Ahch-To Jedi Temple. Ren, under the orders of Snokeis instructed to find and kill Luke, as Snoke knows that as long as Luke is alive, a new generation of Jedi Knights can rise once again.
Luke came to lose faith in Ren for his destruction of the New Jedi Order and believed he is unable to ever come back to the Light side.
However, he showed deep remorse for failing to stop his fall to the Dark side.

Despite this, it does not soften Luke's opinion towards Ren. However, Rey points out to Luke that he failed Ren in thinking that his falling to the Dark side was a premeditated choice. After Yoda in a gentle manner scolds Luke, pointing out that failure is one of the greatest lessons the Jedi could learn from, this causes Luke to realize that his failure wasn't for training Ben in the ways of the Force and lightsaber combat, his failure was for not trusting his nephew and believing in his inner goodness; as he apologized to Ben for failing him.
After Luke was born, Obi-Wan took him to Tatooine, to be raised by his father's step-brother, Owen Larsand his wife, Beru Whitesunin order to protect him from Palpatine. Obi-Wan watched over him for nineteen years. Before discovering Obi Wan's true identity, Luke believing him to be a strange hermit, under the name of Ben Kenobi. After this knowledge, he gained great respect and admiration for the Jedi Master. During their journey to Alderaan, the two quickly became good friends.
Luke was devastated by the death of his mentor, but continued to fight in in the Galactic Civil War, so that Obi-Wan's death would not be in vain. When he discovered that Vader was his father, Luke became angry that Obi-Wan had deceived and lied to him, but eventually forgave him.
However, after he became embittered over Ben's fall to the Dark side, Luke appeared to have regained his bitterness at Obi-Wan for failing to safe his father, as seen by how he told Rey that he believed that Obi-Wan's failure as a mentor was one of the proof of the Jedi Order's hypocrisy. Despite this, after he made peace with his failures, hearing Obi-Wan's voice allowed him to become one with the Force while also retaining his identity, proving he still considered his mentor as a dear friend.
Han Solo Luke arguing with Han. Luke initially had a rocky relationship with Han - due to Han being a greedy and selfish smuggler at the time. During their rescue of Leia and escape from the first Death Star, he became extremely annoyed by Han's recklessness, as he placed them at risk and almost got them captured several times.
During the Battle of Yavin, however, Vader almost succeeds in killing Luke and Han saves him - after this Luke's opinion of Han changes - and they become close friends. Around 30 years after the Empire's defeat, Luke seemingly abandoned his old friend and brother-in-law under his grief and guilt of failing his son. Despite this, Luke still cares about Han, upon learning from Chewbacca off-screen that he had recently been killed by Kylo Ren, he was genuinely devastated by Han's death, as he mourned and grieved over the death of his friend.
Luke would later join Han in death; as he willingly sacrificed himself for the Jedi and Resistance to survive.
However, throughout the Galactic Civil War the two become close friends. In Return of the Jedi, after he and Lando Calrissian destroy the second Death Star; defeating the Empire once and for all, Chewbacca celebrates his comrades' victory and reuniting with Luke, happy that his friend survived the Battle of Endor. Luke's first impression of Yoda was that of a strange, yet harmless hermit, however, after spending many hours on Dagobah, he realizes that the green alien was, in fact, a Force-user like himself and the last surviving Jedi Master in the galaxy.
He discovers this when Yoda begins to talk to Obi-Wan through the Force. At first, Luke wonders who he is talking to, until he hears Obi-Wan's voice. Yoda initially refuses to train Luke as a Jedi despite the fact that there were very few Jedi left in the galaxypartly due to his age and mainly because the be believed Luke to be too much like his father, Anakin Skywalker, in personality reckless, impulsive, short-tempered, and hot-headed.
Yoda was eventually persuaded, albeit reluctantly, by Obi-Wan to accept Luke as a trainee.
Yoda then begins to train Luke in the ways of the Light Side of the Force and lightsaber combat, but also warns him about the dangers and lure of the Dark Side of the Force. Luke had been on Dagobah for at least a year and came to greatly respect the elderly Jedi Master - having the same level of respect for Yoda that his father once had.
Luke has a vision of his friends in pain and leaves to rescue them, abandoning his training, much to Yoda's disapproval and despite Yoda stating that the vision Luke had may not come true. Three months later - Luke returns to Dagobah after rescuing Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt to complete his Jedi training - but is devastated to discover that Yoda is dying. The loss is deep as he had not completed his Jedi training and more so due to how close he had become to the Jedi Master.
Yoda reassures Luke that there is no need for more training and that he had learned all he needed to know. He asks Yoda if he is now a Jedi Knight and Yoda states that he must first face Darth Vader - only then would he become a Jedi Knight - to which Luke states that he already had. Luke asks if Vader is his father and Yoda confirms this truth. Luke became angry that Yoda had known the whole time who his father was but had refrained from telling him yet forgave him at the moment of his death.
Yoda tries to tell Luke about the existence of his twin sister Leia Organabut only states that there is another, and dies before he has the chance to finish his statement. She was quite certain he would be a great father, she assured him, before going one step further and saying he would be a wonderful grandfather, too. At that, however, Han joked that he would never get that old-- and we don't even have to explain why that line hurts so much.
Part of what makes them so exciting as a couple to begin with is their mutual tendencies to buck convention and go wherever the wind may take them. Rather than staying put at home while Leia served in the Galactic Senate, Han in turn took up work as a racing pilot and instructor for up and coming generations of pilots who wanted to learn how to fly from the greatest hotshot pilot there ever was.The Birth Of Leia & Luke & The Death Of Padme [1080p]
An outsider to the connection shared by Luke, Obi-Wan, and even Leia herself, he served as a voice of "reason" when things seemed like they were headed into the entirely elemental and spiritual territory of the Force. However, it was Han's status as an outsider and a non-believer that perhaps led to one of the most avoidable tragedies in the entirety of Star Wars.
Leia had sensed from the womb that there was something dark inside of Ben-- thanks in large part to her awareness of Snoke's interest in him-- but she never thought to tell Han of anything that was happening, because-- as he was non-Force-sensitive-- he couldn't possibly have understood.
So rather than talk it out, Ben was sent off to Luke's for training, and the rest is history. Over the course of Claudia Gray's Bloodline, the long-time married couple frequently fantasize about taking some time away together and just traveling from system to system in the Millennium Falcon, letting all their obligations fall away. Of course, given the tense nature of Leia's work life, and Han's likelihood to be called away at a moment's notice for some sort of pilot commitment, scheduling this time together proved more difficult than it should have.
Yet no matter how inspired by fairytales Star Wars may be, it seems as though happily ever after was never truly meant for these two star-crossed lovers.
