>>110837076>Luke is the exact same character in ANH and Empire
Not the exact same in ANH, but I will grant that the things people tend to get pissed off at Rey for in TFA aren't that far off from what Luke did in ANH. If you agree that bullseye'ing womprats in your T-16 and listening to the Force after one training session aboard the Millennium Falcon enables you to fire missiles down an exhaust vent, then being a bo staff fighter that listens to the Force should be enough to enable you to hold your own against someone that just got shot in the stomach with a bowcaster.
But in Empire, we saw a lot of Luke's training, which we didn't see at all for Rey in TLJ. Plus, Luke was allowed to lose at the end of that, while Rey became MORE powerful without having seemingly earned it.>Luke's development is almost entirely offscreen in RotJ
Nah son, Luke had incredible development throughout that entire movie, from being more confident in his abilities, coming to terms with his father being Darth Vader, returning to Yoda to fulfill his promise, and not least of all the symbolic gesture at the end when he casts aside his lightsaber, realizing that a true Jedi master seeks the peaceful solution. (The latter which they completely butchered in TFJ when he freaked out and thought about killing Ben Solo.)
