7-Year-Old Wants to Let Jedi Marry; Lucasfilm Responds [Pics + Videos]


In the Star Wars universe, Jedi knights can’t marry, and 7-year-old Colin doesn’t agree with that. When he gets older, the young Padawan wants to become a Jedi, and he also wants to marry, so he took the matter into his own hands and wrote to George Lucas to ask the man to change the rule. Here’s what Lucasfilm responded:


Hello, Colin,

Thank you so much for writing to us with your question. It sounds like the Force is strong with you, and you are showing great wisdom by asking your question. To be a Jedi is to truly know the value of friendship, of compassion, and of loyalty, and these are values important in a marriage. The Sith think inward, only of themselves. When you find someone that you can connect to in a selfless way, then you are on the path of the light, and the dark side will not take hold of you. With this goodness in your heart, you can be married.

We enclosed a few gifts that we hope you enjoy. Thank you again for writing to us.

May the Force Be With You!


Your Friends at Lucasfilm.


And lastly, the force is indeed strong with Colin:
