About

The Sacred Texts is a memorable line uttered by the character Luke Skywalker in the 2017 science fiction space opera film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Online, people have used the moment as an image macro, pairing the subtitled frame of Skywalker saying the line with captions sarcastically describing an old and worthless piece of writing being destroyed.

Origin

On December 14th, 2017, the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released.[1] In the film, the character appears before Luke Skywalker in a time of crisis and burns the ancient Jedi texts to teach Luke that they are useless.

That day, an anonymous 4chan user posted a screenshot of the moment from the film in the /tv/ board. They captioned the post (shown below) "YOU LITTLE GREEN ASSHOLE." The thread received more than 340 replies before deletion.[2]

Fun fact (I guess many people noticed it, but this deserves a mention): the sacred texts weren't actually destroyed. Rey took them with her before leaving Luke's island and they can be briefly seen in a drawer of the Millenium Falcon at the end of the movie.
