The arrival of the new Star Wars trilogy, “Episodes VIII-IX: The Force Awakens,” “The Last Jedi,” and “The Rise of Skywalker” stirred enormous anticipation. “Star Wars” has been with us since 1977 and interest has not waned. Jung has written that the best we can do is dream the myth forward. This presentation will take us back to the original trilogy to explore what extent this mythic adventure is still alive in its newest incarnation.
