Kanata’s Castle #3: The Skywalkers: The Force, it’s Strong in their Family

by Kanata's Castle

They say, “third time’s a charm,” right? Well, let’s hope that’s true because Becca and Devon are back for their third episode, and this time, it’s all about those meddling Skywalkers and that “Hokey Religion.” the Force.

The Force, per Obi-Wan, is  an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together.”

According to Star Wars lore and history, the Force was a mystical energy field that connected all living things in the galaxy. The power of the Force or the belief in it i.e. “Church of the Force” could be practiced by anyone who was sensitive to it or at the very least, open to it. It’s a power that was tapped through the midichlorians, which according to Qui-Gon resided in all living things. The Force had many aliases or factions. For example, the Lasats, called it the Ashla, and described it as “the spirit of the galaxy.” The Force is said to be a concept that existed for well over 25,000 years via Wikipedia.

Now, all that said, how does this apply to the Skywalker family?
