Star Wars has always focused on family, and though the Skywalker Saga is unsurprisingly led by the Skywalkers, it is chock full of “found family” stories. In this article, I will highlight how unique the Skywalker bloodline story actually is to the saga, and how the concept of “bloodline” for the Skywalkers – in contrast to “family” – is presented as a burden each generation must overcome through choice, and not destiny. In other words, the Skywalkers themselves promote empowerment regardless of origin.

How serious am I about these choices? Not very. Or am I? Who can say. Read on to find out….

With IX in production, focus has shifted to the final installment in the Skywalker Saga. Many, if not most, expect that it will bring a close to the Skywalker storyline and the franchise will explore entirely new directions. However, a look at where we are and where we’ve come from suggests a surprising direction for the franchise.
