Star Wars: A 'Template For Awe' December 10, 2015
Say what you want about “hero journeys” or the veiled Eastern mysticism of the Jedi Knights—that’s the icing on the cake in Star Wars. It’s the smallness you feel in its big universe that’s the real spiritual “force” of George Lucas' epic. Writer Eric Wargo tells us that for him, great space movies like Star Wars really are religion, re-linking, reconnecting him with something higher and far, far bigger than himself.
