Since the beginning, Star Wars has always been about family. We've 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. We've followed his Hero's Journey. And we 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 that will be our main topic for today. After all, a mother's love is a powerful gift, from a certain point of view.

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 midi-chlorians, 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?
In light of Valentine's Day, Becca & Devon (Red5Mom) have decided to have a heart-to-heart chat on the romantic aspects of Star Wars. Starting with the bantering romance between the smug scoundrel and the prim princess of the original trilogy, to the doomed-from-the-start love affair between the bad boy Jedi and the “absolute-angel” from the prequels. And, well, everything in between…
