I have mixed feelings on this …I think it is great that the kid stands by his principles and that Mark Hamill gave a shout out to him and much love and respect , and I hope the ones who assaulted this kid are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law . I also think a better Jedi philosophy to follow is that of Yoda " A Jedi uses the force for knowledge and defense , never for attack ." If it were my kid , I would make him aware of the real world martial arts influences on The Jedi , let him know that to defend yourself is perfectly ok , and enroll him in a martial art school to learn self defense .I’ts not the Jedi way to kill and maim , it is to defend oneself and others.

I hope the kid’ll learn that too mate - he’s off to a good start with some impressive strength of mind and self-control.

I’m gonna play devil’s advocate and say that for his own good in a school environment he shouldn’t name the jedi way as his personal motivation… Just in name only. Yeah yeah it’s shallow but I think the negatives outweigh the positives.

Our Star Wars Stories - Trailer’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQwn2k91GiI
 

‘Introducing ‘Our Star Wars Stories’, the new digital series from Lucasfilm in which Jordan Hembrough travels the country talking to fans about how Star Wars has impacted their lives.’

^ Hopefully it’ll have some interesting and rich fan stories from across the varying reaches of fandom (and if it is not just a sanitised / safe PR series… maybe something on those that like watching the unaltered theatrical versions of the Original Trilogy 😉)
 

The building your own R2 droid does look intriguing…

Some more info here - https://www.starwars.com/news/our-star-wars-stories
 

 

The first episode has been released on youtube (12 minutes long) - and all episodes are available for free for anyone to watch:-

’Albin Johnson and the Power of Fandom | Our Star Wars Stories’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZE4UYy8EoyU

‘Jordan travels to Columbia, South Carolina to talk with Albin Johnson, founder of the 501st Legion fan group. Albin’s story is one of creativity and determination, facing unplanned and unimaginable heartbreak and tragedy, and the uplifting power of the Star Wars fan community.’
 

 

The second episode is:-

’How Star Wars Sparked Robin’s Journey | Our Star Wars Stories’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ow66OQ29xRg

‘Jordan Hembrough visits Bernardsville, New Jersey, to talk to Robin, a doctor and collector whose life was deeply impacted by Star Wars. Through Star Wars, Robin saw new possibilities for science and her own path for a career in medicine.’
 

 

The third episode is:-

’Christina Cato and the Drive to Create | Our Star Wars Stories’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HO5mI_VlFw

‘Jordan Hembrough heads to Beaverton, Oregon, to meet Christina Cato, a Star Wars fan who taught herself the art and science of droid building. Challenging herself, Christina worked months to build her own functioning astromech from scratch; in the process, she discovered that she’s capable of more than even she herself previously believed.’

 

The fourth episode is:-

’How Star Wars Showed FJ That It’s OK to Be Yourself | Our Star Wars Stories’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXzOfKZmXOI

‘Jordan Hembrough goes to Washington Township, New Jersey, to chat with FJ, a collector who has used the lessons of Star Wars throughout his life. When he was younger, FJ struggled with who he was – but in Star Wars, he saw the power of diversity, equality, and being proud of oneself, no matter what.’

 

The fifth (and final) episode is:-

’The Perales Family and the Binding Force of Star Wars | Our Star Wars Stories’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zy2GhKi61LA

‘Jordan Hembrough travels to Anaheim, California, to meet the Perales family – Sal, Liz, Lizzy, and Axel – who share a love of Star Wars and cosplay that has enriched their lives in surprising ways.’
