The force is what gives a
Jedi his power. Obi-Wan first introduced the force Luke on his journey to become a Jedi. The Force in Star Wars is based on religion. Han Solo didn't believe in the force, meaning that he was an atheist. In the Star Wars film there was two sides, light and dark. This resembles Zoroastrianism.Which is an ancient semi-dualistic monotheist religion.
In the movie, we saw that the
infamous Anakin Skywalker turned
against his own due to his fear and
hate. Just like Lucifer against God. Lucifer was banished and went to war against God. Just like Anakin who becomes Darth Vader who joins evil against the Republic.
