Why the Galaxy Views Luke as a God After Return of the Jedi (Canon) – Star Wars Explained
OK, so we all know that Threepio was worshipped as a God by the Ewoks, but did you know that after the events of Return of the Jedi, Luke Skywalker was revered throughout the Galaxy and not just by little tree bears?
In the new Star Wars novel, “The Legends of Luke Skywalker”, the collection of stories are told from the standpoint of ordinary folk in the Star Wars Universe, On their way to Canto Bight (a new casino planet that we’ll get to see in The last Jedi), tales and legends are exchanged about the now mythical exploits of Luke Skywalker. After all, this is the guy that took down the first Death Star as well as helping to end The Empire, so it’s no surprise that he has become something of a legend.
Without going to deep into the book in this article, I will say that it’s a really good read. You can also find out more about one of the novel’s tales (Luke taking down a Star Destroyer) by checking out this Star Wars Theory video.
If you’d like to find out more about the new book, check out the video below for a more in depth look into the reasons for Luke’s new godlike status. I’ll also be doing more videos on the subject in the run up to the release of The Last Jedi, so keep tuned to the Star Wars Theory YouTube channel.
