I mean, I don’t want the films to ever definitively define the Force, but the films do seem to suggest that the Force either does have a will of its own, or the Force is merely an aspect of that galaxy’s nature that can react to certain external forces that gives the semblance of conscious action, if that makes sense.
Yeah this aspect of the lore is interesting to me. That’s why I wish they would’ve done George’s original sequel trilogy idea, because they would’ve delved more into this. The Force is an energy field of life, and the midi-chlorians in our blood help us communicate with it (or something like that), and the Whills feed off of the Force and can control it. So they sound like a parasite. I’ve always been fascinated with the Whills since I’ve seen them mentioned in the very first Star Wars draft. Who/what are they? Are they good/evil? We’ll never know now it seems 😕
