From ordinary surroundings, Luke undertakes an epic journey, as much of growth in himself as one of distance and time, to become something greater than he could have ever imagined, a hero. Though he wields a lightsaber and flies a starfighter, Luke is still a young man at heart, just like any other, struggling to find himself in the universe. It is this that connects him with his legions of fans. When audiences see the universe of Star Wars
, it is through the eyes of this restless youth. It is his yearning, his anger, his triumph that fans share in as they follow his journey, and it is through his eyes that the amazing universe of Star Wars unfolds before us. The original film concludes with a celebration of the Rebel victory at Yavin IV, with the young moisture farmer recognized for his great deeds and heroism. Thirty years after the original release of Star Wars, it is hard not to feel the same swell of pride and satisfaction to see Luke march down the colonnade of Rebel forces to receive his due.
