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.

How I Met Your Mother: Rey Skywalker Edition – The Cover Up

Legends of Luke Skywalker badly wants you to think two characters are the same, but a careful reader will realize that’s impossible.

“She’s got it where it counts, kid.”

Han boasting that the Millennium Falcon is the ship that made the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs has been the cause of much confusion and debate among fans for the last 40 years.  The question arises because a parsec is a measure of distance not time, so Han boasting about the speed of his ship by saying that it was able to complete a route over the shortest distance makes little sense.

Sequel Trilogy Theory of Everything: Part 2 – The Force Awakens

In part 1 of my Sequel Trilogy Theory of Everything, I discussed my thoughts on the events that led up to the state of affairs that we find the major character’s in at the beginning of the Force Awakens.

Part 1- Background

The TLDR version is that I believe:

Snoke is a villain more akin to Voldemort or Suaron than to Palpatine in that I believe he is seeking to regain lost power and that he sees the members of the Skywalker family as a means to that end.

Rey is Luke’s daughter and was separated from her family when the Falcon was stolen from Han Solo during an attack on the Skywalker/Solo family orchestrated by Snoke. Luke, Han, Leia, and Ben were led to believe that Rey had been killed. The loss of Rey was the catalyst for a chain of events that culminated with Ben Solo’s fall to the Dark Side.

Luke is aware of the Chosen One prophecy and believes that his family are the ones that need to maintain the balance of the Force. He originally thought that Rey would be the one to carry on that legacy, but after her “death” he put all of his hopes on Ben. After Ben fell Luke went looking for answers at the First Temple to try to figure out both how he went so wrong and how to make things right again.

The Force Awakens drops hints to the back story and also poses a few other minor mysteries that I would like to address here.

Sequel Trilogy Theory of Everything- Part 1: Background

What does Snoke want?

Is it just a coincidence that the ship belonging to the brother in law of the galaxy’s last Jedi and a highly Force sensitive little girl just happened to end up on the same backwater world with the same guy?

Why did Ben Solo fall?

Why did Luke go looking for the First Jedi Temple?
