From there, we are thrown into the same situation explained in the screen crawl that opens the first movie. A rebellion is in progress against the rule of the tyrannical Galactic Empire, and the in medias res introduction presents us with the spectacle of a small civilian ship being captured by a large Imperial spaceship, a “star destroyer.” Jones, Camden (March 8, 2020).

Keeping in mind when this was written, and giving it a free pass on weird stuff, I want to leave you with a short quote from my favorite part of the entire book. Luke just learned from Obi-Wan that his father was Jedi Knight, and he wants to learn more. He decides to ask Obi-Wan a question, and this is how the book describes this little moment: a b Hiatt, Brian (December 18, 2015). "Skywalker Speaks: Mark Hamill on Returning to 'Star Wars' ".

Even Obi-Wan Kenobi didn’t feel in the Force the sudden death of all those billions of Alderaanians.Dennis, Catrina (November 19, 2014).

You sense only a part of the force, Darth,” Kenobi murmured with the assurance of one to whom death is merely another sensation, like sleeping or making love or touching a candle. “As always, you perceive its reality as little as a utensil perceives the taste of food….This is a fight you cannot win, Darth. Your power has matured since I taught you, but I too have grown much since our parting. If my blade finds its mark, you will cease to exist. But if you cut me down, I will only become more powerful. Heed my words.” (pp. 184-85) The world’s first glimpse of Star Wars happened with little fanfare, and this first edition of the novel sold modestly. It wasn’t until the official ‘tie-in’ version of the book that it sold millions of copies and broke records, much like the film was doing in theaters.

Tarkin didn’t bother to go over to Dantooine, since even if it would be a real active Rebel Base, it would be too far away of the main space routes to serve as an effective visual testimony of the Death Star’s power to infuse fear in the Core Worlds of the Galactic Empire, so Alderaan was going to be the intended target not matter what. there is an odd paragrah indicating that Darth Vader has been in service of more than one emperor, and while Palpatine is mentioned, it’s not said that he’s a Sith too.In Fate of the Jedi novels, set about 40 years after the first film, Luke Skywalker, now in his early sixties, is deposed by the government from his position as Grand Master, and exiled from Coruscant. However, if he finds the reason of why Jacen Solo fell to the dark side, he can be allowed to return. Ben insists on coming with him. Together, father and son explore dangerous and little-known portions of the galaxy. Luke and Ben learn much about each other, about the Force, and about the great dangers threatening the Jedi. The great love the two surviving Skywalkers have for each other grows even greater as they repeatedly save each other's lives and explore the limits and powers and mysteries of the Force.

Each of the Star Wars characters instantiates one of the archetypes in Joseph Campbell's hero's journey, [56] with Luke Skywalker filling the hero archetype. [57] As such, he is a relatable protagonist who encounters the basic struggle between good and evil in the same way as other heroic figures such as Harry Potter, Bilbo Baggins, and Jesus Christ. Luke's central dilemma is the ongoing war between good and evil, both externally and internally.
