How Star Wars Relates to Mythology

             As Darth Vader's tall black figure stepped forward, Obi Wan Kenobi raised his lightsaber to his head in sacrifice. In the film Star Wars, the elements of mythology are shown throughout the film. The quest, flawed mortals, and deity help shape the film.
             Watching this film has shown me that mythology can relate to my everyday life and that there are many morals, problems and solutions in just one myth. .
             Luke Skywalker stared at his aunt and uncle's burnt bodies, the only family he knew, still smoking in the desert. He made eye contact with Obi Wan Kenobi and said," I want to become a Jedi like my father before me." Luke Skywalker's quest is to follow in his father's footsteps to become a Jedi and fight against the evil empire. Luke's quest begins when he leaves Tatooine, his home planet, and begins learning the ways of The Force. His quest continues when Luke rescues Princess Leia , who is being held captive on the Death Star. Luke's final step of his quest in the movie is when he destroys the Death Star by using The Force. While Luke is on his quest to help destroy the empire, there is an evil flawed mortal that stands in his way.
             Darth Vader reached forward and grabbed the neck of one of the members of the Rebel Alliance and lifting him off the ground crushing the bones in his neck, killing him. Darth Vader is an example of a flawed mortal in the film. Darth Vader destroys Princess Leia's home planet, Alderon to test out the Death Star's power. He doesn't think twice about all of the lives that will be killed. Then Darth Vader captures Princess Leia and is planning to execute her, even after she tells him where the rebel base is. Darth Vader's plan is to take control of the entire galaxy. I think this is very greedy and another example of him being flawed. In addition to Darth Vader being a flawed mortal, Darth Vader also creates a deity in the film.
             "If you strike me down, I will become more powerful than you could ever imagine.
