Luke Skywalker was given a lot in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film showcased a variety of different sides to the character.
In fact, one of his scenes became the subject of artist and illustrator Karen Hillion's pieces, which was shared on Twitter. Mark Hamill reacted to the piece, calling it a "beautiful interpretation of my favorite moment in the film!"
Thanks @Khallion for this beautiful interpretation of my favorite moment in the film!— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) February 25, 2019
The scene from The Last Jedi that both the artwork and Hamill are referring to takes place in the third act of the film, when Luke, via projection, walks through the old Rebel base on Crait and restores Leia Organa's hope in the Resistance. He then gives her the dice from the Millennium Falcon and kisses her forehead. It's a poignant moment for multiple reasons and symbolizes a point of closure for the passing of the old guard of the Star Wars saga.
Far more than that, the piece also serves as a touching commemoration of Carrie Fisher, as it's titled, "No One is Ever Really Gone," which is a quote from the scene. Fisher passed away in 2016 due to a drug-related cardiac arrest. The actor, well known for her role in Star Wars, as well as her work as a script doctor and writer, will appear once again in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX using a mixture of new and old footage.
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX also stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film is scheduled to open on December 20.
