  1. […] Legends of Luke Skywalker With Ken Liu – My first Big interview and it ended up being one of the most fun opportunities to just connect with another Star Wars fan. Ken’s perspective and thoughtfulness about the Story and how it relates to our culture is mind-blowing. […]

  2. introduces six different tales about Luke Skywalker, passed along from one being to the next, and shared among the crew of a freighter bound for Canto Bight. What is it about Luke Skywalker that makes him more than just a hero, but a figure of legend?
