Warning: This post contains spoilers for the Star Wars: Rebels episode "Twin Suns." From a certain point of view, Obi-Wan Kenobi sits at the very center of the entire Star Wars saga. Dead or alive, Kenobi is the only human character who shows his face in every episode of the original and prequel trilogies. His inability to prevent the rise of the Empire, or the creation of Darth Vader, is the core story of Episodes I-III. Kenobi's nurturing of Luke and lying to the kid about his dad sets in motion the core story of Episodes IV-VI. The core mystery of how he turned into a Force ghost when he lost his duel with Darth Vader in Star Wars lasted six whole movies. Read more...

The image above shows the general elements of the hero’s journey, which can be broken down into much more detail than presented here. It’s important to note that not all monomythic stories contain every aspect, but the original Star Wars faithfully follows almost every element of the hero’s journey. Let’s focus on the first two steps of the journey, in the “ordinary world” before the journey truly begins. Here's how those elements occurred in the original Star Wars . Luke is living in the ordinary world of his home planet, working on the family farm. The “call to adventure” is R2-D2's holographic message from Princess Leia, the classic princess in distress. Luke initially refuses the call due to his family obligations, until his aunt and uncle are killed. Luke meets his mentor and guide, Obi-Wan Kenobi, who convinces Luke to proceed with his heroic journey.

S. presidential election. “There is no other nation in the world that was watching Donald Trump so closely during his campaign, cheering him on,” declared Dmitry Kiselyov, the head of the giant government-controlled international news agency Rossiya Segodnya (Russia Today). Kiselyov, who also hosts a widely watched program on state television, has backed Trump openly and loudly on his show. "They failed to portray Putin as a monster, now they're trying with Trump," he said during a recent program, referring to the U.S. media. Since his inauguration, Trump has received a lot of positive coverage from Russia's state media. Since mid-January, Time Will Tell, a live political talk show that airs weekdays on state television, has devoted five programs exclusively to the American president. During one of those broadcasts, host Anatoly Kuzichev, who has called Trump “our president,” stood in front of a large screen with Trump’s face photoshopped onto an image of Star Warscharacter Obi-Wan Kenobi swinging his laser sword.

Woody Harrelson is officially joining the cast of the upcoming Star Wars standalone film centered around a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) , and Mashable got a chance to talk to the Hunger Games star soon after the casting news broke on Wednesday. Details about Harrelson's Star Wars role are scarce, but the actor confirmed rumors that he'll be playing "a mentor to Han," telling Mashable that his character is "also a bit of a criminal." Much as Obi-Wan Kenobi schooled Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force, perhaps Harrelson's character will tutor the young Han Solo in the finer points of being a smuggling scoundrel. Read more...
