What makes Anakin and Luke different, and why were their choices so distinct? This leads into the driving question for The Force Awakens for director JJ Abrams, “Who is Luke Skywalker?” While the answer may seem simple, it's layered with meaning and metaphor built through four decades of filmmaking. 

Matthew Rushing and John Mills challenge each other with their interpretations of Luke and Anakin, and what the future might hold in Star Wars as Rey joins Luke in a monastic retreat somewhere at the edge of that galaxy far, far away.
