Join our host Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) and her guest Ty Black (@black_Tym and Wit & Folly on YouTube) to discuss the Star Wars The Last Jedi Novelization written by Jason Fry, published by Delrey.
We discuss Themes, what this book says about the force and the Saga in general including an understanding of the Hero’s journey. We also talk about Wayward Jedi if you are interested in finding out more about his discussions. We recommend his videos on the Hero’s Journey and Star Wars as well as his videos on Rey/Kylo.
Join us for Part 2 next week – all about the Characters, non-romantic pairings and Ships.

I’m a big fan of Wayward Jedi’s videos on YouTube. So I was really excited for the lines in this novel that you feel support his theory of Kylo and Rey being the reincarnated Anakin and Padme. I love this idea and will be thrilled if it turns out to be the real story.
But even if we don’t get a reincarnation story spelled out explicitly, I love the strong evidence from both the movies and the novels, that Kylo’s story is the mirror image of Anakin’s in reverse. I feel that fact alone allows the Sequel Trilogy to complete a circle for the nine movies of the Skywalker saga. If we get the reincarnation reveal it will be the icing on the cake.
There are alot of hints at and I am a huge fan of WWJ as well. I believe that there is alot in extended canon that points to the idea of the redemption – the resolution not being done yet. It all ties because to BEN. Thank you again for listening.
