Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill), everybody’s favourite Tatooine farmboy, is undoubtedly one of the most unique characters in the Star Wars trilogy. And one fan has done justice to the story of Luke’s life with an impressive tribute video in conjunction with the franchise’s 40th anniversary.
Note: This video has been approved by Mark Hamill. For real.

Made by one Heroes Fans Productions YouTube channel, this Luke Skywalker story focuses on the subtleties of Luke’s life, but also brings out some intense emotions as well.
“Anyway, many of you might think Rey is the Last Jedi, and yes the title can be plural (Rey and Luke, which is fine too) but for the sake of this video, I am making Luke The Last Jedi because he truly has been for the past couple of decades or so after he lost his entire Jedi academy by the hands of his own nephew…,” Heroes Fans Productions wrote in the description.
At almost 10 minutes long, the video follows Luke’s path from Tatooine to the Ahch-To, before closing with the pivotal scenes from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. It maps his journey, facing his many trials and tribulations yet going against all odds to becoming one of the most powerful Jedi ever.
It’s epic, to say the least. Especially the scenes of conflict and despair between Luke Skywalker and his father, Darth Vader. Watch:
Is Luke Skywalker really The Last Jedi? We’ll find out when “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is released on 15th December 2017.
