Kanata’s Castle #16: Padmé Amidala: ‘The Paths we Choose Pave our Destiny’

by Kanata's Castle

Kanata’s Castle continues their “Pathway to The Last Jedi” with Padmé Amidala: ‘The Paths we Choose Pave our Destiny.” In this episode, Becca, and Devon pick up where they left off, the Skywalker family. Only this time, it’s all about origins. A bloodline of courage, selflessness, and hope. Padmé Amidala.

Sometimes, love isn’t enough.

Anakin and Padmé were star-crossed lovers. Doomed from the start. And yet, their love created something that the galaxy needed. It’s ironic. The galaxy that made their love impossible to be out in the open needed their love more than they knew.


The Force chose Anakin, but it also chose Padmé.

The Force knows courage, selflessness and it knows hope.

And Padmé’s most endearing act was giving her life for her children’s safety.

Padmé Amidala Skywalker.

A symbol of Hope.

A Force of Destiny that will lead us on the ‘Pathway to the Last Jedi.’
