Star Wars creator explains the entire saga is told from one character's perspective

Star Wars creator explains the entire saga is told from one character's perspective

Can you guess who?

You may not have noticed this but all nine films in The Skywalker Saga are reportedly stories recounted by one singular character, R2-D2.

It’s a relatively well known fact that C-3PO and R2-D2 are the only two characters to appear in all nine films - and, of course, those films are A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker.

You may not have realised R2’s significance beyond that.

The character may not be present in every single scene but he was clearly still closely tracking events as George Lucas has previously revealed that The Skywalker Saga is told as if recounted by R2-D2 several hundred years after the events took place.

In the book How Star Wars Conquered The Universe by Chris Taylor, Lucas confirms that R2 relayed this information to the keeper and narrator of a book known as The Journal of Whills.

ICYMI: We recently sat down with The Acolyte’s Dafne Keen, Rebecca Henderson, and Charlie Barnett.

As reported by Metro, this fictional history book details the events that span those nine films - from the fall of the Galactic Republic to the rise of the New Republic.

Who passes this information on to the author of the book? R2-D2.

When we watch those films, one interpretation is that we’re experiencing R2’s recollection of events having stored all of that information to his hard drive.

“The entire story of Star Wars is actually being recounted to the keeper of The Journal of the Whills – remember that? – a hundred years after the events of Return of the Jedi by none other than R2-D2,” reads the book, based on information provided by George Lucas’ animation director Rob Coleman.

If that Star Wars factoid hasn’t left you too stunned to go on, oh my, there’s more.

If you’ve ever wondered what a Tusken Raider looks like underneath all their regalia, that particular mystery has been answered.

It turns out that Emperor Palpatine’s return in The Rise of Skywalker may have been Luke’s fault all along too.

Star Wars’ lore is extensive and vast.
