Star Wars.com completes its look at themes present in the six existing Star Wars films, as we are finally able to experience the newest chapter in the saga, The Force Awakens. The final film in the original trilogy, Return of the Jedi, answers many of our questions, brings important new information to the overall story, and catapults a change in George Lucas’ mythological canvas that has enraptured us for almost 40 years. We see the end of Emperor Palpatine’s dominant reign, learn the fate of Darth Vader, say goodbye to some old friends, and find out how Luke Skywalker restores peace and freedom to the galaxy. As is often the case in meaningful storytelling, Return of the Jedi features themes that bring even more impact to the audience, and allow us to discern greater significance to this galaxy far, far away.
