So I figure we need a discussion about the mythology the George Lucas borrowed to use in the SW movies. I love learning about mythology, but I dont know too many things. I know...pretty dumb. But the most obvious thing we can see is the immaculate conception. Anakin being born without a father. The is traditionally used to denote someone that is the Messiah, or chosen one. We also have the idea of the "fallen angel". the good angel or person that falls from grace, and becomes a figure that causes great evils. There is the idea of the 'prodigal son', one that leaves the family after some sort of unhappiness, goes off to perform other deeds, and then comes back. We have the temptation. A good person is tempted by someone that would influence them in a negative way. We also have two versions of this, one that is influenced, and one that is not. There are others, many more obscure....but I'll leave them for you guys to tell us about. Lets not forget that the mythology is not only applicable to Anakins story, but to others in the Saga too.
