Evolution of Get Lucky
Starts in 1920s style and progresses to 2020. Really cool!
Kenobi excerpt - Analogy of Tatooine’s Suns: Anakin & Obi-Wan.
I was reading along (top excerpt Ch. 13, pg115) and remembered the Story of the Suns as told by A’Yark the Tusken War Leader (Ch.1). I believe Obi-Wan sensed their twin fates.

That’s a really interesting take on the hood-removal thing. I read it as an explanation to why Ben looks different in A New Hope when he’s played by Sir Alec Guinness - since it happens right after Annileen explains how the sun exposure would makes people look older, even using an actor as an example.
Oh wow. That didn’t occur to me! I suppose I was basing the action on Obi-Wan’s highly attuned senses. How he has ‘bad feelings’ and such. A more idealistic / romantic take. A more ‘Obi-Wan, Jedi Master’ take I might say. Your take on the other hand, leans on the fact that Obi-Wan was then a broken man, intent on shedding his identity, to quite literally de-face himself. A ‘Ben Kenobi, Recent Arrival’ take. Very dark. Very much in tune with the raw mad grief he’s repressing. Certainly fits the change from McGregor to Guinness.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I love the multiplicity of interpreting a symbolic act. Very refreshing.
It’s really interesting to compare thoughts on story points like this.
I don’t know any Star Wars readers in real life which is unfortunate because there’s so much good stuff to talk about that I, well, can’t.
