"Taken in Tunisia early morning Day #1 waiting for my 1st shot (emerging from home for robot auction) Perhaps the very 1st #Luke Pic," he wrote. SEE ALSO: Original Rogue One' ending did not include Darth Vader kicking ass Aw, look at original trilogy Luke.

When you make a shot worthy of Luke Skywalker, you're treated to an impressive lightshow and the sound of the Death Star exploding. For a particularly bad turn, you can have the table charge up and make a show of firing back, or taunt the player if their shot goes wide. The lights and magic are reminiscent of an arcade machine, which suits the hit-or-miss style of play for this particular board.

Ever since the (literal) cliffhanger ending of Star Wars: The Force Awakens , fans have been throwing out speculation basically nonstop about what was coming next in The Last Jedi . Was Rey actually Luke Skywalker's daughter? His former student? Did he leave her on the planet to scavenge for herself? Well, it turns out most of the fan theories were about as accurate as stormtrooper fire, because the nature of Luke and Rey's relationship has now been revealed! Photo: Disney Unveils New Cast Photo Of The Han Solo Star Wars Spinoff! At a Disney shareholders meeting, the very first footage was shown, including Luke's long-awaited first words! Thanks to many Bothans (and one leaky L.A. Times reporter who attended), we have a brief Twitter description of the footage: "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" clip is being screened. But it's a joke, sort of! We just got a few seconds of Rey handing Luke a lightsaber.

Bob Iger just became the galaxy's greatest tease. The Disney CEO offered some footage of the upcoming Star Wars sequel, The Last Jedi , at the company's annual shareholder meeting in Denver Wednesday and the footage apparently included a pretty major spoiler for the movie.

SEE ALSO: The new Star Wars episode title means more than you think The teaser features Luke Skywalker's first meeting with Rey the moment where The Force Awakens ends, and The Last Jedi begins with Luke asking Rey "who are you?" according to a Los Angeles Times reporter at the meeting.

They seem like real people. While they may have accomplished amazing things (they could even be freakish in their abilities), they also feel like someone we could know personally. I'd argue that all of these folks have elements of the familiar: Luke Skywalker Oprah Captain America Peyton Manning Frodo Baggins Neil deGrasse Tyson The Bush family The trifecta The strongest stories will often include all three of these elements, but they don't always come wrapped in the same character. Schwarzenegger's not the only one, though, by any means. Neo in The Matrix starts off as a mild-mannered Familiar, becomes an ultra-powerful Freak, and then evolves into the ultimate Cheat who sees through and disrupts the Matrix's corrupt nature. Tyrion in Game of Thrones is an obvious Freak, whose physical differences cause him untold pain.

SEE ALSO: Seven Earth-sized planets orbit an alien star only 40 light-years away The star system, which is located about 1,000 light-years from Earth and named SDSS 1557, is composed of a white dwarf star and a brown dwarf an object too small to be considered a full-fledged star, but too large to be a planet.
