On “Space Saga Side Story: Rebel Girl And Her Crew”
George Lucas had it right from the very beginning. You had to start with “Episode IV”. The original trilogy is the story that mattered. Because “Star Wars” is about the hero’s journey of “Luke Skywalker” and maybe even moreso the redemption of “Han Solo”. When you really think about it “Han” is the real hero of these movies. “Luke” joins the rebels because the plot gives him no other choice. His aunt and Uncle are dead and his home it burnt to a crisp (and as I mentioned before I think “Obi-Wan” knew that was going to happen and saw that as the only way he could start training “Luke”. Which is all kinds of messed-up). So he goes with the old man who at least seems to know his dad.
“Han” on the other hand not only really chooses to be a hero, but does so at great risk due to the bounty on his head. Sure you can chalk some of that up to him really wanting to bang “Leia” but still. He also saves the main competitor for her affection more than once again at great risk to himself. He also does this with no powers, no teachers, and no personal stakes in the fight. He also pays the price for it by being tortured and frozen for several years. That’s a good dude…
Tomorrow still more with these guy as the talk about “Space Saga Side Story: Rebel Girl & Her Crew”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
