Kanata’s Castle #4: Star Wars Moms: “From a Certain Point of View”

by Kanata's Castle

It’s episode “Four” and we’re back for more! That’s right, Becca and Devon are ready to do what they do best. Talk about Star Wars! In this episode, they discuss Star Wars Moms. Well, from a certain point of view.

Since the beginning, Star Wars has always been about family. Viewers watched a young Luke grow from the guidance of his Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen, and face the trials, and tribulations from his biological father’s troubled past. Viewers followed his Hero’s Journey. And viewers were with him when he accepted his father’s path towards the dark side as his own, and did the unexpected by bringing his father, Anakin Skywalker, back to the light side of the Force.

Luke, Anakin, and many other Star Wars characters have had a family influence during their life’s journey. It is those relationships and influences, especially Star Wars Moms,  that will be our main topic for today. After all, a mother’s love is a powerful gift, from a certain point of view.
