Most assumed, as they do here on this interdeck, that Johnson was likely bringing video game "Knights of the Old Republic" to the big screen.

The cast and director of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" paid tribute to Carrie Fisher during their promotional news conference in Tokyo on December 7.

But Johnson admits it's unlikely that he will borrow from past "Star Wars" media because the "sky's the limit" when it comes to stories a galaxy far, far away. I played that game when it first came out and it was like, god, I loved it. "I love reading the fan theories, you know, having been a Star Wars fan myself and been on the other side of the curtain most of my life it's pretty cool to be back behind, like peeking through saying seeing like I would have people guessing".

The "Knights of the Old Republic" takes place nearly 4,000 years before the formation of the Galactic Empire, where Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Malak, has unleashed a Sith armada against the Republic.

Whether or not Lucasfilm plans on exploring more adventures with Luke set during the original trilogy timeline is now unknown, but Alden Ehrenreich is already stepping into Harrison Ford's footsteps as Han Solo while Donald Glover is doing the same for Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian for Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The fan-casting of Stan as young Luke became popular among fans online after a photo morphing Stan's likeness with Mark Hamill's young likeness showcased the striking resemblance Stan shares with Hamill.

"They're so passionate, and the stories they tell - how it got them through illnesses, or they met their future wives. Personally, I want to see a Yoda origin story".
