Some days you just can’t get to the bottom of the lore hole. Such was the case this morning when what should’ve been simply research into the Overlords Trilogy from the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars turned into a cascade of “Wait, what?” and a flurry of tabs opening the likes of which I haven’t seen in many moons. But the results were so worth it because I return from the depths with a treasure trove of semi-canon lore about the creation of the Force and the galaxy at large that could be easily folded into the new, streamlined Star Wars. In fact, the process has already begun.
In 2011, Star Wars: The Clone Wars aired a self-contained series of episodes known as the Overlords Trilogy. Breaking from the main storyline, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, and Obi-Wan Kenobi found themselves teleported to a metaphysical plane inhabited by what can only be described as the anthropomorphic personification of the Force. The Father, the Son, and the Daughter. The episodes were controversial and befuddling, working a a huge metaphor for how events would play out in the “real” world as Anakin turned to the Dark Side to become Darth Vader and destabilize the balance of the Force. But who where these people, known as the Force Wielders within the show and “The Ones” in the now defunct Legendary universe? If the lore is to be believed, they are the children of the architects of the galaxy.
In the video below, the following are mentioned: Celestials, Killiks, the Mother/Abeloth, the Font of Power, the Pool of Knowledge, Centerpoint Station, the Corellian System, ascension, engineered star systems created for unknown purposes, and more. Just sayin’, it’s a lot to absorb. Maybe take notes.
