Power of Myth & Symbolism: Dark Vs. Divine Union

Join our host Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) and co-host Ty Black (@black_Tym and Wit & Folly on YouTube) in our segment “The Power of Myth & Symbolism” in Star Wars. Today we talk about the Myth of Tristan and Isolde and how it helps explain what will happen in the Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker based on the mythological parallels and asking specific questions about what Palpatine Wants.. This boils down to Power and how we have on the table a Dark VS Divine Union in the works.
