In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is the Top 10:
#4: The Jedi Teachers
Obi-Wan Kenobi. Yoda. Qui-Gon Jinn. These masters passed along wisdom and training in the path to becoming a Jedi. They are the ones behind the hero’s journey. Obi-Wan helped Luke alone his path to learning the ways of the Force. Ever watchful over the young Skywalker, even in death, he sent him to Yoda, the Jedi Master who trained him. Yoda trained Luke, helped him control the Force. Yoda knew the power that lay inside of Luke and helped shape his destiny. Qui-Gon Jinn was of a different era. He was Jedi Master to his apprentice, a young Obi-Wan. It was Qui-Gon’s maverick nature that set him apart. He believed in the Force, but also believed in himself, more so his instincts. Without these Jedi teachers, we may not have had a new hope for the galaxy.
