Even if it was poorly conveyed, George’s intention was to critique the Jedi way. The Jedi rip a child away from his mother, and it leads him to the dark side. That’s the fault of the Jedi. In the end, when Vader is redeemed and the Sith destroyed, it is because he loved his son. The Jedi were wrong, and Luke was right. That is the point Lucas was trying to make, and the sequel trilogy isn’t doing anything but continuing his ideas in that regard.

I don’t know if we can say for sure that it was in fact George’s intention to critique the Jedi. But I will say that is an interesting ideas we will consider! You are correct in pointing out that Luke only won because he didn’t listen to his Jedi masters. The idea of reforming the Jedi Order will be imbued in him.

There is no “proper canon.” That’s bullshit. George was constantly changing his mind. He had approximately 500 different ideas for the sequel trilogy over the years that were probably incredibly contradictory (as the PT often was to the OT).

Please refrain from becoming so meta that you end up saying things that make no sense. There is a proper canon. We have an artist and his creation. Anything he wants to do or approves of is canon. Let’s not confuse ourselves.

I also prefer to see it as George coming up with ideas constantly instead of constantly changing his mind. When I think of the way the Star Wars story came about, I can admit that it did happen, but I don’t think it happened in the way you’re trying to prove.

It should be noted that he did not have 500 ideas for the Sequel Trilogy. He has like 5. He always said he had vague ideas, because he never really considered it would happen. All the ideas he did mention, do not contradict each other. There was a post earlier that links to a collection of interviews with George regarding the Sequel Trilogy. Check it out!

This thread is just speculative fan fiction. Don’t pretend it’s anything else.

Of course. I never said it wasn’t. I’m sorry you came into here thinking it was otherwise. I should’ve been more clearer. I would like to justify our “fan fiction” though: at least it’s more rooted in the creator’s ideas than Disney’s trilogy was. So which one is the real fan fiction?
