Star Wars Poetry
So many people criticize both the Star Wars prequels and “The Force Awakens” for being clones of the original series. But what is often forgotten is that Star Wars is the very embodiment of the Hero’s Journey, and its themes and archetypes live on from generation to generation. Although this video was made before “The Force Awakens” (which has gotten the most heat for copying “A New Hope”) it drives home the poetic synchronicity that is found within the Star Wars saga: the originals, the prequels, and the new (and although “The Force Awakens” is not featured here, you can use your imagination to fill it in).
Watch, and see the poetry of Star Wars and the Hero’s Journey.
