What if I Wrote The Force Awakens? - Star Wars Theory Fan-Fic

If Luke never tried to kill Ben Solo. Things would have been entirely different.
Ben would continue to communicate and be under the manipulation of Snoke, however his destruction of Luke’s jedi temple that night would or would not have happened. Regardless, it would have happened eventually. That night or another night. Let’s say Ben was going to do it anyways that night, then Luke wouldn’t have been knocked out. He’d have been fighting for and protecting his students. He’d have destroyed the few students who rallied with Ben and easily taken Ben out, too.

This could cause two outcomes. One would cause Luke to bring Han and Leia to his temple to talk with Ben, and 4 of them together could discuss things. Luke wouldn’t be driven to run away and cut his force powers off because A) he wouldn’t be ashamed of trying to kill his nephew because he never did, regardless of it being a fleeting shadow of a thought or not. And B) his students wouldn’t be slaughtered and his Jedi temple would still stand!
This would cause Ben to escape from his parents once they took him home, and he’d leave to unite with Snoke.

The other outcome is, Ben gets away that night, he escapes by the skin of his teeth, just strong enough to flee from Luke’s grasp. He steals a ship and leaves to find Snoke.

Snoke essentially does what he originally did with Kylo which was not complete his training until the events of the force awakens.

However, now there would be no point in having the map to lead to Luke Skywalker, because he never went into exile. So in order to understand this new Luke, we have to explain the force awakens slightly.

The map for Luke Skywalker, would turn into a message to Luke Skywalker, to come back as a rebellion fighter, and join the resurgence of new rebels to destroy starkiller base and defeat Snoke. Who they don’t know is Palpatine. Poe gives the message to BB-8 who runs away and fights Teedo in the desert. And we can just say Rey meets BB-8 the same way she did in 7, then meets Finn and Poe etc.

Jump back to the current time where Luke doesn’t kill Kylo and Kylo runs away to Snoke.

Luke would continue to train Jedi for the next decade and become even more powerful in the force.
He would continue to educate himself with new texts and scrolls throughout the galaxy, and commune with the force ghosts. He would constantly stay in touch with his sister through the force and keep tabs on his friends. Visiting them periodically and stopping by Leia’s home while gallivanting through the galaxy, finding new artifacts.

Luke would become so unbelievably powerful, that no one dared to exterminate him. This forces Snoke to train Kylo even harder. Making Kylo into what he was always wanting, a dark, brooding, powerful fallen Jedi. Using both the light and dark to power him. He would lead the first order under Snoke’s command. Snoke would order Kylo to go to Exegol where his training would be completed for real. He would meet Palpatine and face his test against the Sith troopers. I’m not talking about the stormtroopers in red paint, I’m talking about real badass Sith troopers with dual wielding lightasbers. Palpatine would also have cloned, imperfectly, a cyborg Maul, and trained him to fight like the real maul used to, albeit without force abilities. This Maul would be a more terrifying version of Grievous. More skilled, and with the same personality and fighting style as the real Maul. He would just lack the powers of the force, albeit, still force sensitive, just not very much. Kylo would prove himself, and fight hard against this Maul. He would become very powerful and pass all tests, defeating his enemies. Kylo moves like Anakin. Sidious sees it, and smiles.

      This is what should’ve happened in the last Jedi the idea that Rey’s parents were no one was so interesting and should’ve kept that and she isn’t a palpatine. They should’ve shown more back story on the knights of ren. When Kylo asked her to join the dark side and rule the first order she should’ve joined and they rule the first order and that leads Finn a former storm trooper who feels the force and becomes a Jedi and Leia trains him. The fact that a storm trooper has the force and becomes a Jedi would’ve been the best thing the sequels could have done and is so interesting. Kylo ren as the main villain is what should’ve happened in my opinion and Rey is on his side and that leads Finn to destroy the first order and take down Rey and Kylo and save the republic.. boom!!!! The sequels would’ve been so much better if it went this way and kept palpatine out of sequels.

    My suggestion is that.. Its possible in the opening scene of your version of episode 8, We would be able to see as Luke gallantly slashed one of the knights of ren with his green and blue light sabers as Rey watches in fascination but.. the tides would easily turn against Luke. Kylo was far more stronger and had been more calmer and less arrogant than he was in the films due to Sidious' trainings. Unlike the movies, Rey would be useful. She'd be on the millenium falcon (or some other ship who knows) and she'd be using the turret of the ship to blast on the knights of ren and kylo, opening the hangar bay and save Luke. On the other side, Kylo would be in pain as the shot severly injured him some of his limbs to be missing or blasted off. The remaining knights of ren carrying their leader back to exegol and there Palpatine ordered medical droids to attach cybernetic limbs just as he has done to Anakin. So yea, thats my suggestion hope you liked it

    I posted this to the community poll for when I first heard this, but it bares stating again. Really wish people would stop saying “Luke tried to kill Ben”. That’s very clearly not what happened. He panicked and instinctively turned on his saber. Not to strike or kill, but just out of a fleeting moment of intense fear. Ben saw it as an attack because well, he woke from a deep sleep to see a lightsaber and a scared Luke standing over him. Ben was already on a tightrope between the light and dark, and just the thought that Luke didn’t trust him, then seeing him with a lightsaber like that was the final push over the edge into the dark side. I’m not a fan of the sequels so I’m not shilling for them or whatever, but it’s a very interesting moment in the story and seeing that even SW Theory himself blows past the details because he doesn’t like the outcome anyway makes me quite sad. It’s much more complicated than just “Luke tried to kill his nephew”. He didn’t. He faulted for a critical moment of fear and the crack in the armor there of the Jedi Master was the catalyst for the destruction of the Jedi Order once again. It’s such a compelling moment but everyone blows past it because they either didn’t pay attention, or just hate the movies so much anyway that they just ignore facts because it disinterested them.

    I feel that it would be good to have rey not be amazing with the force but in fact have her have to learn to channel it as she never had training in the first place. I think it would also be pretty interesting to maybe have her create her own saber but instead of the yellow blade have her either use Vader's cyber crystal for a short period since Luke would probably want her to be able to defend herself or maybe find her own crystal (instead of just randomly having one like in rise of Skywalker) and I think that it would be interesting to maybe have her have to overcome something like Anakin and Luke had to. Maybe she does something reckless or ends up being to slow as she is stopped by her fear(an example being maybe someone gets into her head and she is unable to act because of fear)

    My only problem is I feel the lore is way too heavy for the first episode of the trilogy. With Snoke, Palpatine surviving, the Father, the son, the Jedi war, seems way too heavy, on top of having Ben Solo, and Rey in here as well. Seems like part of it could be for Ep 8. Personally with Palpatine revealed here, I feel we can cut Snoke entirely, as he is unnecessary filler.

Have Luke obtain what his father Anakin didn't a true balance in the Force. Have Luke be the next embodiment of the Father of Mortis, the embodiment of Balance.

    Yes thank you, this is exactly the kind of Star Wars I wanted to see/hear about after Return of the Jedi. This is the Luke Skywalker I wanted to see. A Grandmaster Luke of the Jedi order that has been through trials and tribulations but is still upbeat yet grounded. A Luke Skywalker that has embrace or at least has touched the Dark side of the Force, but is still very much rooted in the Light. This Luke is much closer to the teachings of the Jedaii order and is much stronger and in my opinion much better for it.

    Always thought Ep 7 should have been about the quest to find the map to Luke Skywalker bringing our heros to interesting locations with the first order on there heals and the war between the new republic and the first order. Luke is in excile because be tapped into the dark side when snoke and the knights of ren along with kylo destroyed his new jedi order. Now he is afraid of the dark side. But when rey and such find him he is reminded of hope. And eventually comes back and saves the day. He becomes a teacher to Rey and then maybe you could kill him at the end of ep 8 or 9 when he dies an hero's death. Also i think Anakin should have been way more involved. Maybe after his death he has taken over the role of the father, daughter and son from the mortis arc or something like that. Anakin keeper of the balance. He is relatively new to that role and kinda power, so he does not have it under controle, and as the dark side grows stronger, so does his inner part of the son/darkside/vader side of him and he is fighting it but it's getting out of controle and it poses a real potential threat to the balance of the force. Also they should have either commited to Snoke as the main villain or maybe snoke is the son himself or darth jar jar lol, maybe even Palpatine but then in a better way
