The original fairy tales are also a lot darker than the sanitized versions most people are familiar with today.

Most myths too of course, complete happy endings in those were a little elusive.

Not to mention, of course, Star Wars has never been just a fairy tale. That’s just one aspect of it. And it was never supposed to be just another myth. It was supposed to be the creation of a new modern myth. Deconstruction has been built into the franchise since the beginning.
