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.

The release of Solo: A Star Wars Story is only about a month away and there’s been plenty to speculate about, most notably regarding the flagship Millennium Falcon.

One of the most important concepts in the Galaxy Far Far Away is the dark side of the Force. Confusingly, it’s been presented in two seemingly contradictory ways in Canon – a corruption of the Force, but also as a natural side of the Force. In this article I’ll explore how the dark side has been portrayed through the evolution of the franchise. In a future article, I’ll take a look at and speculate about the two conceptions of the dark side.
After watching The Last Jedi again after its home release, I’ve realized that the Third Lesson is essentially the theme of the movie as a whole. The lesson involves fighting for the galaxy as a whole, and not making family your bottom-line motivator. It’s a battle between Luke and Kylo Ren to turn Rey to one end or the other, and Rey represents the audience. The Third Lesson was not only taught to Rey, but it was taught to us as the viewers.
