Luke Skywalker is one of the greatest characters in the history of pop culture.
Throughout the original Star Wars trilogy, Luke was the character we saw ourselves in. He lived a boring life and dreamed of something more. We can all relate to that. Who wouldn’t want to be swept away from the ordinary, embarking on a galactic adventure wielding a lightsaber?
He faced many physical and emotional challenges, evolving into a complex hero.
After his journey to becoming a Jedi Knight concluded in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, an entire Expanded Universe developed around him to continue his story. He led a new generation of Jedi in their fight against evil, triumphing over one foe after another.
The Luke we met in Star Wars: The Force Awakens took an unexpected path, exiling himself to a remote island. Now Star Wars: The Last Jedi is gearing up to show us what caused Luke Skywalker to run away after everything went wrong.
