Wow, guys, The Last Jedi premieres this week! I absolutely can't wait, and I'm sure you can't either...so to get our Star Wars fix until then, let's play another round of Who Would Win in a Fight: Star Wars Edition, eh? This week, the semifinals begin, but first, let's see who won last week's matchup!
Quarterfinals Week #4 Results
With 67% of the vote, Chirrut Îmwe beat back Kylo Ren to advance to next week's semifinals, where he will face the frightful Darth Vader...
For now, though, let's get to the first week of semifinals. Boy, is this one a doozy: Luke Skywalker vs. Rey.
Literally the center of the Star Wars saga, Luke Skywalker's life and accomplishments are hardly anything to scoff at. Born on the desolate desert planet of Tatooine, Luke Skywalker was suddenly caught up in the galaxy-wide battle between the Empire and the Rebellion when R2-D2, bearing an important message, fell to his hands. Luke eventually came under the instruction of Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Yoda himself, delivering massive blows to the Empire using his newfound abilities in the Force. He blew up the first Death Star with a one-in-a-million shot and converted the infamous Sith Lord Darth Vader (who also happened to be his father) back to the Light Side of the Force. While we've yet to see any action from Luke in the new trilogy, he's done quite well for himself in the past:
Introduced in 2015's The Force Awakens and returning for the upcoming film The Last Jedi, Rey has captured the attention of fans due to her mysterious past and uncanny connection to the Force. While the origin of her powers may remain enigmatic until Episode VIII premieres this week, we saw glimpses of Rey's strength in The Force Awakens, most notably in her encounter with Kylo Ren. Armed with a lightsaber passed down through generations of powerful Jedi, Rey is a force to be reckoned with. Take a look:
So, there it is--I've never seen such raw strength in a WWWF matchup. But, you'll need to decide...who would win in a fight? Luke Skywalker or Rey? You have until Wednesday the 13th at 11:59 P.M. to vote below!
