We’ve spoken before of Finn’s role specifically in the Skywalker family arc, and how his future is heavily foreshadowed to interweave with them as Han Solo’s did before him–but what about where he came from before the beginning of The Force Awakens? In this article, I make a case for a backstory for Finn that both adds depth to his past, and gives meaning to his future.

The Legends of Luke Skywalker is structured as a series of stories being told within another story, known as a framing story. The framing story is entirely canon, the stories that the characters tell however exist as in universe legends. Like legends that exist in our world they are subject to error from exaggeration, romanticization, being altered slightly with each telling, or could be fabricated entirely. While their canonicity is questionable, the stories are worth examining because there is often a bit of truth in Legends.

I sat down earlier this week with Ken Liu, author of the book The Legends of Luke Skywalker, to talk about all manner of exciting Star Wars stuff. Full interview below the cut.

‘The Last Jedi’ is not the first divisive piece of media Rian Johnson has directed. Breaking Bad’s ‘The Fly’ was a bottle episode released in the midst of the third season, bringing a halt to the show’s main plot. Instead, Rian utilizes symbolism and unconventional directing techniques to reflect on Walter White’s state of mind. This heavy use of meta storytelling and symbolism evokes our own theories on how Rian approached The Last Jedi.

One of the most intriguing concepts introduced in ‘Legends of Luke Skywalker’ is that of the Tide. On its face, it seems like yet another philosophy of the Force, yet a survey of the canon reveals it’s actually far more important than that and appears to be an emerging core concept. Indeed, the philosophy seems to have not only made a significant impact on Luke himself, but also on the broader Star Wars canon.
