As Luke Skywalker went into hiding for years, it is surely expected the reason behind it will get unveiled already.

Accordingly, one possible reason of his decision to stay away from everyone is his utmost desire “to keep people safe.” It can be noted that whoever stays near him, he or she becomes a collateral damage.

Meanwhile, another exciting detail of “Star Wars: Episode 8” which fans should look forward to is the discovery that Luke Skywalker could be hiding the tree that has special powers inside his new Jedi Academy.

Could it be another reason why he has been hiding since he wants to protect it?

In the meantime, International Business Times reported that contrary to speculations stating that Rey could be Luke Skywalker’s daughter, there is a strong possibility that she is actually the grandchild of Emperor Palpatine.

And this new fan theory is supported by some evidences.

The first proof cited was the way she fought during the last installment, wherein it was pointed out that her style of using the lightsaber has semblance to the late Emperor’s.
