It’s a moment of a Zen here at Kanata’s Castle as Becca and Devon are back with episode ten! Giving it their all as they tackle one of the most controversial topics since “Twin Suns” debuted on Star Wars Rebels; the prophecy of “The Chosen One.”
“The Chosen One” is the one chosen by a higher power to save us all. A Hero: the one that must undergo a series of risks, forced into unfavorable choices, and faced with enormous stakes.
As a child, he made a choice to leave the only family and life he had ever known because he was simply too afraid to stay a slave in the only life he ever knew. Every choice has its price, a cost. Loss. Perhaps the Force understood this. After all, the Force chose him to choose. Well, from a certain point of view, of course.
