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.
I will also argue that each trilogy has pitted Skywalker vs. Skywalker, and that the Sequel Trilogy is no different. Following, I revisit themes and narratives associated with Arthurian Legend as it pertains to the battle between Kylo Ren and Rey over the saber that belonged to Luke Skywalker, and his father before him – the Skywalker Legacy Saber. I conclude that several lines of reasoning all support the Star Wars Shadow Council’s Case of a delayed familial reveal for Rey Skywalker, Daughter of Light, and Heiress Apparent to Anakin Skywalker.

This video highlights the Duality of the Skywalker Legacy born from the choices of the Chosen One: Vader and the Darkness | Anakin and the Light. Kylo Ren seeks out the power of Darkness from Vader; he seeks to finish what his Grandfather started. Ultimately, only the Light of the Skywalker Legacy Saber calls out, and it chooses Rey. She follows a path hauntingly similar to both Anakin and Luke, but Rey’s last chapter is not yet written….

In the first Case for Rey Skywalker, we presented the idea Luke knew who Rey was at the end of The Force Awakens and kept it from her to protect her. Now we present an alternative possibility. Continue reading The Case for Rey Skywalker: Another Interpretation

Names in Star Wars usually carry real-life meanings, either intentional or unintentional. As such, it’s worth examining the name of the girl in ‘Fishing the Deluge’ in Legends of Luke Skywalker, ‘Aya’.
