‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Will Rely Less On The Divine Power Of The Force, But That’s Not Necessarily A Bad Thing
It first dawned on me that there was more to the Star Wars film franchise than I had previously appreciated when it was announced that we’d be watching it in Hebrew school. Thinking about the film in the context of religious education, I recognized new weight in Luke and Han’s conversation about the veracity of the Force. I can’t exactly manage a better excuse for having missed this admittedly heavy-handed translation than the fact that I discovered Star Wars at a pretty young age. So there’s a good chance that any fan, casual or adamant, of George Lucas’ 1977 space opera know it to be a proudly spiritual testament to the powers of faith and possibility.
