Star Wars, by George Lucas, is a movie that will be excelent forever. The reason
for this is that the movie is very symbolic, and the ideas represented in the film are
central to human existance — humans will always believe in some form of the ideas
that are in the movie. The most obvious idea that is in the movie is religion.
Good versus Evil, Light versus Dark, and the Rebels versus the Empire. These are all
religious overtones in the story line. The religious connections become clear
when the movie is watch.
Star Wars opens with a desolate desert planet where the viewer/reader is introduced to
the main character, Luke Skywalker, and his aunt and uncle. Luke is a young kid who
wants an adventure, he is gifted with a strong love of “The Force”. At first, Luke is
unsure of his gift, and unsure of his beliefs. This is where the teacher is introduced. Old
Ben Kenobi, or “Obi-Wan” Kenobi represents a priest/teacher figure who is well known
in the force. Obi-Wan provides guidance for the young Skywalker, teaching him how to
use his gift for good. Once Luke lets go of his mental block,
