Mark Hamill explains exactly why Luke died in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

October 24th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Mark Hamill has taken to Twitter (below) to explain what he believes killed Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi using Gary Whitta’s comic adaptation of the movie to do so.

Here’s what Hamill wrote:

‘THE FORCE KILLED LUKE. You have to acknowledge the irony in his fate. Almost like an addict that kicked his habit cold-turkey, remained clean for decades, only to re-use just once & then, tragically, overdoses.’

We reckon if anyone can break down what exactly went through Luke’s mind at the moment he bacame one with the Force it would be him and we honeslty like this take.

Having avoided using the Force for all those years, having turned from the galaxy, to save the Rebellion, sorry, Resistance, he was force to give himself untimately and fully to it.

It’s a noble end for our heero for the last 40 years… but we’d still rather he’d survived to fight another day in the closing chapter of HIS story.

Maybe that’s just us.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
