According to Sumerac: “It’s always a great pleasure to get to return to a galaxy far, far away for another project, but having the chance to explore the path of the fabled Jedi Order through Luke’s eyes was an honor like none I’ve ever had before“.

The author also commented that the Skywalker saga has always been a crucial part of his own reference base in pop culture and being invited to write the book, in the words of Luke Skywalker himself was a dream come true.

The book, although not a story in the strict sense of the word, promises to expand the universe of the Jedi, incorporating things from Clone Wars, Rebels, the films and content never seen before, both from Luke Skywalker and other iconic Jedi Knights, such as Qui-Gon Jinn, which will surprise Padawans and long-time fans.

The author also points out that one of the book’s biggest challenges was finding a way to bring all the vital information about the Jedi in a way that looked new.

We all know his story, of course, but Master Skywalker who writes this book is no longer the farm boy who had an optimistic look at everything. Therefore, he is able to give a unique perspective on the Jedi stories that allows us to discover the truth about the Order.

With this as a priority, it is possible that the readers, are able to analyze the different aspects of the Jedi Order and from a different angle of the ancient legends.

And the most interesting of all that is: let’s go deeper into Luke’s mind and know what he really thought about the Order, when he refused to teach Rey at first.

In this book, Luke ends up revealing that he kept in touch with the Spirits of the Force of Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda during the years that came after the events of Star Wars: The Return of Jedi.

The work also shows that Luke even lost contact with the spirits when he “closed to the force,” but managed to reconnect when he started training the young Rey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

If this information is relevant to episode IX or not, only the film will tell, but we can assume that Luke’s spirit will be present, since Mark Hamill – the actor who plays it – is in its cast.
