STAR WARS: FORCE BOND

Force-bond

Initially, I was one of those die hard Star Wars fans who hated how Rian Johnson made The Last Jedi. At the time, I could not even stomach watching it a second time. However, after doing some research, I discovered something Johnson did that was unexpected. What Rian Johnson did was find ways to depict certain aspects of the old Expanded Universe and reintroduce them to us through the movies. For example, we got to see Kylo Ren and Rey form a what is known as a Force Bond, which is a phenomenon in which two Force wielders become connected spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. We were first introduced to the Force Bond in the first Knights of the Old Republic game where Revan shared a Force Bond with Bastilla Shan. Both in the old Canon and the new, there were other examples of the Force Bond. Jedi Master Yoda shared a Force Bond with his former apprentice, Count Dooku. Darth Sidious attempted to use this bond to attack Yoda with Sith sorcery. With Kylo Ren and Rey, we finally got to see how the Force Bond worked in live action on the big screen. Now that I think about it, I think there were aspects of The Last Jedi that were creatively executed.
