Campbell's Mono myth and Christ

@Oshwah and 2600:1014:B019:B800:E42C:43A5:30F:2E51: I'd like to suggest to you that a mention of Christ is entirely relevant to this section. The section is comparing Luke to other heroes through the lens of Joseph Campbell's monomyth of the hero's journey. In his book, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Campbell explicitly mentions Christ numerous times, in extremely complimentary ways . e.g.

He is "the kings son" who has come to know who he is and therewith has entered into the proper exercise of his proper power - "God's son", who has learned to know how much that title means. From this point of view the hero is symbolic of that divine creative and redemptive image which is hidden within us all, only waiting to be known and rendered into life. "For the One who has become many,remains the One undivided, but each part is all of Christ", we read in the writings of Saint Symeon the younger..." (p31)

If you want to engage with the editing process then I suggest you avoid threats of vandalism and edit warring as they will only get you blocked, thus removing any chance you might have of putting your point of view. Morgan Leigh | Talk 04:19, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

I personally don't see how this content is relevant or needed, nor do I see how it's neutral. Why is this content important and how is it directly related to the article subject? ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 10:15, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
The reason it is relevant is that Joseph Campbell was a big influence on George Lucas. For example:

George Lucas was the first Hollywood filmmaker to credit Campbell's influence. Lucas stated, following the release of the first Star Wars film in 1977, that its story was shaped, in part, by ideas described in The Hero with a Thousand Faces and other works of Campbell's. The linkage between Star Wars and Campbell was further reinforced when later reprints of Campbell's book used the image of Luke Skywalker on the cover. From Joseph Campbell

I honestly can't see how it's not neutral Morgan Leigh | Talk 04:09, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Expanded Universe appearances.

Sections 1.2 through 1.4.3 take up a large section of the article, but leave out numerous appearances. If we were to try adding them all, it would be an enormous list and require constant upkeep to include new material. Would it be better to have a more consolidated "Expanded Universe" section that simply acknowledges that the character has made various appearances outside the films and maybe mentions a few prominent instances? [Boba Fett's article is a good example of what I mean.] Rowsdower1 (talk) 17:38, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
