"The Force killed Luke," Hamill tweeted Monday. "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 and then, tragically, overdoses. #SadSkywalker #ForceFatality #JediJunkie."
The Star Wars: The Last Jedi six-issue comic book adaptation written by Gary Whitta shows Luke Skywalker dying after using up all his energy via the Force for a final one-on-one with Kylo Ren by projecting himself on Crait.
Whitta's comic describes Skywalker's life ending as it began, staring at the two suns like he did so long ago in A New Hope when he was a young man still dreaming of adventure while stuck on his aunt and uncle's farm.
