The Many Jedi Who Were Trained by Luke Skywalker

List Rules
Vote up the Jedi most worthy of Luke's patronage.

Beyond the Star Wars film saga and across two separate Expanded Universe franchises, there have been many Jedi trained by Luke. For those who only joined the fandom after watching The Force Awakens, there's a whole other set of stories in the pre-Disney canon that feature many of Luke Skywalker's Jedi apprentices. In fact, Luke set up an academy on Yavin IV to train a new generation of Jedi after the fall of the Empire.

As you'll see from the list below, many of Luke's Jedi students went on to fight in many of the wars that engulfed the galaxy far, far away as new threats entered New Republic space. One conflict that you'll see recurring here is the Yuuzhan Vong War, which affected much of the Star Wars universe and the lives of most of Luke's Jedi. For many of the characters below, that war was a deciding moment in their lives.

Some Jedi overcame the challenge and became great heroes. Others fell to the dark side, committing atrocities that would put Kylo Ren to shame. Will Rey fare better than some of the Jedi from the old canon? Only time will tell.
