Warning: The following contains spoilers from Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett "Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tatooine,” streaming now on Disney+.
One of the things fans wanted most when the Star Wars sequel trilogy was announced was for Luke Skywalker to have a family. Many wondered if he'd be married Mara Jade, the former assassin of Emperor Palpatine, like the Expanded Universe, but that sadly didn't come to pass. However, Luke did have a wife in The Last Jedi novelization from Jason Fry, and shockingly, she made a cameo in the latest episode of The Book of Boba Fett.
This is none other than Camie Marstrap, who appears in The Book of Boba Fett alongside her boyfriend, Laze "Fixer" Loneozner, while accosted by a biker gang at Tosche Station. Fortunately for them, Boba barged in, beat the villains down and stole their speeders to use in a heist with the Tusken Raiders.
But while many didn't recognize Camie, she has a rich history with Luke, with her and Fixer being his friends on Tatooine. She debuted in a deleted scene from A New Hope that George Lucas deemed too expositional. They were watching the skies at this same station, along with pilot Biggs Darklighter, denying that a firefight was occurring as Luke tried to get them to see it with his binoculars. This helped push Luke to dream of life out there in the galaxy while also teasing the future Jedi had a crush on her. But ultimately, she ended up with Fixer, ending the guys' rivalry before Luke went off to find his Jedi destiny.
In the novelization of The Last Jedi, however, it becomes clear Luke never gave up on her because, as an old man on Ahch-To, he still felt she was his soulmate. The exiled Jedi Master had a dream on the ocean planet where he married Camie during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War, opting to stay in the moisture farming business with his uncle and aunt.
In this alternate life, Luke stood outside of his homestead, gazing at the sunset with Camie as they always did, remembering the time they shared together during the war between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance. But Camie became unsettled by her husband in this sequence, suspecting he wanted to be far away from her, only for Luke to reassure her she was his everything. It added a lot of depth, personality and emotion to Luke, showing how he longed for her in a life devoid of love due to devotion to the Order.
Camie's inclusion in The Book of Boba Fett was welcome, as it felt organic. But it's also a massive payoff for diehard fans because while Camie and Fixer appeared in various Star Wars ephemera beyond their deleted scenes (the 1981 Star Wars Radio Drama, the Marvel Comics adaptation of the first film and 1976 novelization by Alan Dean Foster), they've been considered borderline canon. Well, that's officially changed thanks to this sentimental scene, and the Disney+ series could aim to have more moments like this as its run continues.
To see Luke's wife from his dream, The Book of Boba Fett is now streaming on Disney+.
