Arkansas: Luke Skywalker
It’s clear from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi that Luke Skywalker likes a remote area, and with all the parks and nature in Arkansas, it could be the perfect place for him to escape his past. Forget the island in the middle of nowhere. Just give him a corner of Arkansas and he’ll be happy.
Young Luke Skywalker also seems to just fit the vibe Arkansas gives off. If he wasn’t living on another planet, he’d be a small-town kid who had dreams of doing something great and who’s curious enough that his dreams become a reality. I’m sure there are plenty of people in the state that wish the same for themselves. Yes, you too can be a Jedi, people of Arkansas.
He could even set up some kind of Jedi School in the middle of a forest. Imagine, trekking to some obscure place in Arkansas that not even the locals know about, only to come upon a hut with an old, grizzled man living inside who tells you he feels the Force in you. Excuse me while I go write the script for the next movie.
And if Luke is living in Arkansas, that means Leia and Han (if he weren’t…you know) would visit too! Han would love that Arkansas is the only state to produce diamonds. I know there are some famous people who have come from your state, but I’m sorry Johnny Cash is not Luke Skywalker! Arkansans’ cool factor would quadruple if Luke Skywalker lived in the state. And with him fighting for the good side, Arkansas would be on the right side of things.
