Apprentices Edit

if there are new jedi in Episode VII how would we know if they were trained by Luke or one of Luke's Students? 06:55, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

  • If they are specifically mentioned as having been trained by Luke, then they can be listed under this page's "Apprentice" field. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 07:12, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Lightsaber abilities and NPOV Edit

Even if this is new canon, it should still stay in neutral tone, right? I quickly glanced through the current Lightsaber abilities section and it didn't sound that neutral to me, but idolizing Luke in a big way.--Dionne Jinn (Something to say?) 21:35, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Then feel free to change the way the info is presented. That is all I can say lol. Matt Seay (talk) 00:06, May 24, 2014 (UTC)

Surely the stuff about Form V is not canon? CadBanesHat (talk) 07:10, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

Image Edit

Are there any objections to using a different main image? One that shows his face or something from RotJ, as opposed to the cloaked one. Admiral James Kaizer (talk) 18:03, June 3, 2014 (UTC)

Red 5 linkEdit

Is there a reason why the canon link for Red 5 goes Straight to the luke canon page? Jkirk8907 (talk) 06:15, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

Spark of RebellionEdit

Obi-Wan says, "the new hope will rise" that is referring to Luke is it not? Matt Seay (talk) 16:01, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Bit of a stretch, IMO. Could also have referred to Leia. — DigiFluid(Whine here) 16:17, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

Could be possible but Obi-Wan and Yoda always saw Luke as the new Hope. Matt Seay (talk) 16:22, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • That's speculation, however. It's really ambiguous, not worth trying to guess what he's referring to. 1358 (Talk) 16:24, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

Alright well I thought it might have been an important indirect mention of Luke. I wanted to make Sure is all. I know the whole time Luke is growing up Obi-Wan still think Luke will grow up to be the savior of the Galaxy or whatever but It is not like he comes out and says, "The son of Anakin Skywalker will save us all." Matt Seay (talk) 16:28, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • It's pretty obvious what the reference is, but I agree it's not enough to add to a Wookieepedia page. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:32, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah now that I think about it, unless some more direct reference is made like the "There is another Skywalker" think from Sacrifice then it should not be noted I guess. Matt Seay (talk) 16:37, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Let's not take this to an unnecessary extreme. The "a new hope" line could easily be referring to the Rebel Alliance, but the context in Sacrifice is clear. Destiny and Sacrifice are about Yoda learning to become a Force ghost because he would train the "one who will help bring balance" (or something along those lines). The Force ghost trick was all about Luke's story and guiding Luke, and Yoda learning about it was because he would one day train Luke. It's a clear Luke reference. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it's a duck. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:51, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

Well seeing as the point of the show is to explain how the alliance came to be then thst makes since. Matt Seay (talk) 17:00, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

Can anyone add the new information from "Star Wars 2: Skywalker Strikes Part II"?


I'll be honest. Is this section even needed? (Here and in any other page.) It merely seems like a way to clutter the page. (Even if they're well-written.) | ShiroxCloud(talk) 13:16, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

A Jedi or Padawan?Edit

Are we considering Luke to be a Jedi, a Padawan or what; during the time of A New Hope and the Marvel series? I've been using the term "Jedi Apprentice", because that's closer to what was said in A New hope and Heir to the Jedi. Calvin Schubert(talk) 00:45, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

TFA quote? Edit

The quote attributed to Luke in the "post-Endor" section is archive audio from Return of the Jedi. I know that Mark Hamill was recorded saying the dialogue again for the trailer, and that is the "echo" that is heard, but this is probably something that was done just for the trailer and not an actual excerpt from the film, and therefore not a quote that can be attributed to Luke post-Endor. I'm also pretty sure that I read somewhere that the narration for the first TFA teaser was recorded by Serkis specifically for the teaser, so it wouldn't be the first time that they did this. Also the quote wouldn't really make sense anyway because he says "my father *has* it" when Anakin is now dead. Rebelssbm (talk) 01:06, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

As Anakin became a Force Spirit. I believe he had presence and aura in the Force and that he did have the Force. I guess it's just speculation. But i do believe that if someone becomes one with the Force they have a great connection to it and has the Force and possibly the ability to use it. Same with Qui-Gon(Though his training to retain his consciousness was incomplete it's clear in the Clone Wars Episode Voices he has the ability to use the Force)Obi-Wan,Yoda and whoever else becomes one with the Force. Eclipse (talk) 07:14, March 7, 2016 (UTC)


Since it says Leia was born two days after Empire Day, shouldn't Luke's say that too? Skywalker2255 (talk) 20:35, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi. It does, in the "Early life" section. It doesn't need to be in Leia's infobox (that's too much information for an infobox) so I've moved the info on her page from the infobox into the article body. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:37, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

Okay thanks. That clears things up. Infoboxes should be just to the point. Skywalker2255 (talk) 20:41, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

Post-Endor QuoteEdit

Should the "Force is strong in my family" quote be used here? It was in the Ep VII trailer and all, but the quote is from RotJ... Thoughts? Cwedin (talk) 04:50, July 5, 2015 (UTC)

Update template Edit

I can't find what the standard procedure in cases like these is so I'll explain here and someone who knows the rules can handle it. Luke was only briefly mentioned in Aftermath, there is no info in the book that would be of use to this article. Overlordjeff (talk) 09:30, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

  • I'd say the general aftermath of Endor should be at least added to the article, like the fact that the Empire fell and the Rebel Alliance was replaced by the New Republic. It's all relevant context for his upcoming appearance in Episode VII. QuiGonJinn Senate seal(Talk) 11:58, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Restoring the Jedi Order Edit

There is a lot of assumption in this section. It is assuming that Kylo Ren killed his fellow students but it is never said. He might have turned them - thus creating the Knights of Ren. We do not know. We also do not know that the planet with islands houses the Jedi Temple. It might just be a place where Luke chose to hide. It is never specifically stated. I think the assumptions should be removed. --UnimportantHero (talk) 04:32, December 19, 2015 (UTC)

  • I agree. I haven't read the VII novelization of the film but that is the reference used to support an explanation of R2D2's power mode. We need specifics or a deletion. Did R2 really download the entire empire archive while they were trying to escape the deathstar in IV? After downloading the archive in the middle of battle, R2 needs power mode and a whole day to search for the map? This can't be right.Gulliver1swift (talk) 07:08, July 15, 2016 (UTC)

Info box pictureEdit

I have a picture of Luke from The Force Awakens. It is of decent quality but not sure if I should upload it. Is there a way I can get an admin to look at it first? I also have a picture of Leia as well. JediMaster1987 (talk) 19:29, December 24, 2015 (UTC)

  • The only way to get an image of Luke from the film is through leaks or torrents, which can't be uploaded as they do not qualify for fair use status. We'll need to wait until an image of Luke is officially released. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:58, December 24, 2015 (UTC)

The Leia picture however comes from one of the TV spots, so that can be used right? JediMaster1987 (talk) 22:33, December 24, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks to the official announcement video for Episode VIII, we now have a high quality image of Mark Hamill as Luke from the time of the sequel trilogy. Could we add that? VadertheWhite (talk) 20:55, February 15, 2016 (UTC)

  • It's not really suited for an infobox. It's too wide, and it's to the side rather than looking straight at him. I would wait until we have an official promotional still, or a Blu Ray screenshot from the film when it's released on home media on April 5th. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:02, February 15, 2016 (UTC)
    • There is a portrait of old Luke in The Force Awakens: Rey's Story, but it's a drawing by Brian Rood. What do you think? --LelalMekha (talk) 10:02, February 16, 2016 (UTC)
      • What? It's worth uploading at least as one of the first official images of Sequel Trilogy Luke. They haven't even released an image of him in TFA. --Alientraveller (talk) 10:20, February 16, 2016 (UTC)
        • Just putting this here so everyone can see it before we decide anything. --LelalMekha (talk) 10:24, February 16, 2016 (UTC)


Wouldn't this imply that he died? Why does the article start with was?Takua (talk) 22:42, January 23, 2016 (UTC)

  • All in-universe articles are written in past tense, per "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." More information can be found in the Manual of Style. Cwedin(talk) 22:45, January 23, 2016 (UTC)

Hair color dispute Edit

Guys, it looks like there is an ongoing dispute about Luke's hair color. Can't we settle the matter once and for all? A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy consistently describes Luke as "blond kid." --LelalMekha (talk) 13:06, February 7, 2016 (UTC)

  • If that's what the book says and the character is already generally known as a blond anyway, then that's certainly more than enough for me. He's blond. ProfessorTofty (talk) 15:29, February 7, 2016 (UTC)
    • Maybe the page needs protecting. Bet these folk think Ezra's hair is blue as well. --Alientraveller (talk) 05:07, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

ROBO hand Edit

is it bothering anyone else that lukes had is no longer human looking? i mean did technology go backwards? last i knew of young luke he had a prostetic that looked real not just a robo hand attached to his arm. why the downgrade? Dracoswizard (talk) 15:20, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

  • I would assume after 30 years the synthetic material would either wear itself away, or fall apart following some accident. Also, if you could, please try to use article talk pages to discuss the article, and not the topic of the article. BrulesBrules signatureClick here to chat 17:17, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

Plot leakEdit

It was revealed via plot leak that Luke was suffering from an inner conflict between light and darkness around 30 A.B.Y. Should we put this?--Beethoven4ever (talk) 17:35, June 16, 2016 (UTC)

Intro references Edit

Why doesn't the top of the article require references? Or is the information too obvious, and only in the body for obscure information are they needed? I'm just curious. -- NoahR9First_Order.svgChat with me! 03:11, August 7, 2016 (UTC)

  • As indicated here, "This is done to prevent "congestion" in the main introduction of the article. As most—if not all—information appears elsewhere in the article, do not begin sourcing until after the first heading. If, of course, the information does not appear elsewhere in the article, then it is acceptable to source it in the introduction." --LelalMekha (talk) 07:55, August 7, 2016 (UTC)
    • Thanks heaps! I was trying to find the policy page myself. NoahR9 First_Order.svgChat with me! 08:02, August 7, 2016 (UTC)

Wording about training with Yoda Edit

This article mentions that Luke spends a whole year training with Yoda. While Episode V itself does not make the passage of time too clear, what is the source that he spent a whole year on Dagobah? QHRvRICdalurIA (talk) 00:22, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Update 2Edit

Looks like Luke's biography could use some polishing up.Jkirk8907 (talk) 21:54, March 20, 2017 (UTC)
