You might be convinced one or two of your ancestors came from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. In that case, you’ll be happy to hear Disney has plans to continue making Star Wars for at least the next ten years.
If you can prove a relationship, be prepared to find black-sheep ancestors. During The Empire Strikes Back, the series’ fifth episode, the evil, black-masked Darth Vader shocked young Jedi knight Luke Skywalker by intoning, “I am your father (gasp-wheeze).” (Vader abruptly ended the reunion by whacking off his long-lost son’s arm with a light saber.)
Another reason to hope your relatives aren’t in the Skywalker line: You’ll run smack into a brick wall at Luke’s grandparents—his grandma Shmi Skywalker has always been vague about Anakin’s father. Movie fans suspect the ubiquitous Force, which probably doesn’t have a birth certificate. That’s certainly a mystery, but what we really want to know is who got together and spawned Jabba the Hut?
