I Think There Were Force Connections Before ‘The Last Jedi’

If you’ve read my previous post you will know that I have recently watched Revenge of the Sith and to my great surprise I think I discovered another secret Force connection but not from The Last Jedi but instead from a movie made over a decade before it; Revenge of the Sith. There’s a scene after Anakin is told to wait in the Jedi Council by Mace Windu that highlights a quiet but emotional moment between Anakin and Padme Amidala.

They are both sitting in a chair deep in thought with a window to their backs and slowly, as they seem to sense one another, they go to look out the window.

They both seem to stare at each other even though they are miles apart. Padme gazes at the Jedi temple across the way.

And Anakin stares at the apartment building they live in across the way. Both of their faces are creased with emotion and while they may not know it, they’re practically looking at one another eye to eye.

You see, I don’t think this is as strong a Force connection as say the meetings between Rey and Kylo Ren where they were literally in the presence of one another but rather a different connection where they can sense each other and are linked in a strange bond they can’t rid themselves of. And this isn’t the only time this has happened.

In Attack of the Clones when Padme and Anakin find themselves in the dreadful droid factory they both face death at the same time (Padme almost gets covered in molten lava, Anakin almost becomes chopsui thanks to a giant axe) before finally getting caught.

And then there’s the parallel between these two lovebirds as Anakin gets medically attended to fully become the Darth Vader we all know and love and Padme is medically aided as she gets ready to bring Luke and Leia into the world. The scene cuts back and forth between them, each of them experiencing pain in different ways. Anakin’s mutilated body is the source of his pain and Padme’s is her childbirth. And they both end up dying as well, as Padme dies from supposed lack of will to go on and the man that was Anakin Skywalker is destroyed by his new identity, Darth Vader.

All three of these scenes hint at the idea that there were Force connections before The Last Jedi was even thought of. Of course, they are not as elaborate and personal as the ones in The Last Jedi where two people can hold hands across an entire galaxy but the concept is still there and that’s pretty cool.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this theory and whether there should be more Force connections in the future. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.

 

Fan Art Wednesday

It’s Fan Art Wednesday and you know what that means, I’m going to share at least two of my sister’s incredible pieces from the past week and boy am I excited. So, with no further delay, let’s do this!

A Portrait of Padme in Blue

This portrait of Padme in what is undoubtedly my favorite outfit of hers is utterly beautiful. There’s something almost magical about this picture that features Padme Amidala that feels both original to the character yet retains that sense Natalie Portman brings to the character.

I’m in love with this portrait. Continue reading Fan Art Wednesday

‘The Clone Wars’ Delivers a Riveting Second Episode

The Clone Wars is back and its second episode reaffirmed that by giving the fans what we wanted; more Anakin, some Obi-Wan and some Padme, all with the new clones and fan-favorite, Captain Rex, leading the story. The action was ramped up, the story feels like it’s getting somewhere, and the realization that the entire season takes place during the timeline of Revenge of the Sith is beyond exciting.

This Friday the story should get even more interesting after the second episode’s intriguing conclusion and I’m hoping that it’s all leading to the horrifying slight-reveal of the clones troopers’ eventual doom at the hands of Order 66. Ooh, this is going to be a fun ride.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force be with you.

It’s Eights Days Away from ‘The Rise of Skywalker’!

It’s eight days away from The Rise of Skywalker, just a little over a week. It’s an exhilarating thought. Today we get to celebrate this day by looking at some of the best posters from Revenge of the Sith. Enjoy!

This feels like a precursor to The Clone Wars, which featured the Clone Troopers very heavily. Continue reading It’s Eights Days Away from ‘The Rise of Skywalker’!
