Over at my site Fangirl Next Door I ask an important question – does the Jedi choose the crystal, or does the crystal choose the Jedi?
If you pay attention to more than just Star Wars you see a mythological, magical and deep world of fantasy in many other franchises. The one I feel like parallels Star Wars the most is Harry Potter. In fact I am convinced that JK Rowling drew on Star Wars as an influence when she was writing the Potter novels. In Harry Potter we see a journey with Harry the same way that we see a journey with Luke Skywalker. While this journey is not the same there are ups and downs and some run ins with the dark side. The idea for the “wand chooses the wizard” is what inspired me to wonder if the lightsaber Kyber crystal chooses the jedi?
