Well, it’s official. Luke’s wife’s name is Camie. (I have no idea if it’s Camie Loneozner or not, but I wonder what happened to Fixer.) It will be interesting to see what comes of this in the canon. If it is her, I will update this post.
From our source: “We have the Novelization in our inventory now, and I was able to skim thru it. Luke’s wife’s name is…………Cammie. A new name for Canon “Cammie Skywalker.” And Luke still misses his old friend, Biggs Darklighter. He now considers Biggs one of his only true friends. That was about all I could get from it skimming thru the prologue.”
I don’t know if it’s a misspelling or not, but notice the double “m.” Camie is one “m.”
