LUKE’S JEDI TRAINING TOOK YEARS
In contrast to Rey’s speedy development, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) trained for years before he became Master Yoda’s padawan. Many fans do not account for the three years between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, during which time Luke practiced and tested his relationship with the Force, training daily. While Luke is by-and-large a self-taught Jedi, other than the brief periods of time when he was able to train with Obi-Wan and Yoda, he still developed his skills and knowledge of the Jedi Order over years.
In the Marvel Star Wars comics, Luke discovered a number of holocrons that contain information about the Jedi Order adventures between Episodes IV and V, now in the possession of a Hutt named Grakkus. Luke not only trained physically and practically to be a Jedi – during his development, he also learned about the history and philosophy of the Jedi Order. Even though Luke was self-trained, his training is in the Jedi Order, and not merely in the Force.
