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.

In this section, we examine The Last Jedi itself in light of the ideas developed in the previous section. We think that not only is our suggested interpretation fully compatible, but a more resonant and coherent read of the movie than the surface read. For a full explanation of the interpretation, go here.

The vast majority of the fandom feels The Last Jedi has unequivocally shut the door on Rey being the daughter of a legacy character, particularly Luke Skywalker. In this series, we’ll make the case that the movie does not close the door, but in fact makes the Rey Skywalker theory just as viable, and immeasurably more meaningful, satisfying and powerful.

The Statistics of Force Sensitivity: Or Why Members of Inferno Squad Should Have a High Midi-chlorian Count

Something that greatly intrigues me about the Star Wars setting and the Force is the statistics of and mechanics Force sensitivity. We know a tiny number have the potential to become Jedi and the most will live their lives without ever seeing any overt evidence of its existence. However, there’s a relatively sizable number of people who are above average and below Jedi potential with consequences for all sorts of professions and statistics in large populations.

Author’s Note: In this article I am simply qualitatively applying population statistics to what we’ve been told and shown about Force sensitivity in the GFFA setting and make no judgement on whether the conclusions are thematically appropriate.

The Fall of Ben Solo

Written by robotical712

I would like to say up front that I don’t think JJ’s statement in the commentary that Rey and Kylo haven’t met before TFA should be taken absolutely. So please don’t reply as though I’m not aware of what he said. Second, it does make some leaps that aren’t predicated on any information we currently have. It’s based on where I think the ST is going thematically. This incorporates ideas developed in the previous three sections.

The Emperor and His Goals

Only the beginning.

Canon has been steadily revealing the Emperor’s goals were far more ambitious than ruling the galaxy and had many hidden projects to achieve them. This gives some context to my discussion of Rey and Jakku.
