From its very first frame, the Star Wars series created a compelling universe, with complex characters and engaging storytelling. In advance of the highly anticipated new movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this essay collection offers a fascinating and unauthorized psychological analysis of every aspect of George Lucas’s richly rendered galaxy. Expert contributors led by Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight; The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead) examine such topics as family ties, gender, values, villainy, and heroism itself. They shine a light into the hidden part of the psyche and reveal the ultimate lesson of Star Wars.
