[quote=“Jim, post:3335, topic:214, full:true”]Why does a story have to have one lead? Who’s the lead in Game of Thrones? Star Wars is Luke and Leia’s story. Harry Potter, is Harry, Ron and Hermonie. I think there’s a real splitting hairs situation if you’re dismissing those characters as not being alpha++ as a means to bypass that Dr Who didn’t need to make this change. [/quote]
Calling Star Wars equally Leia’s story is a huge reach. Luke is the emotional center of the trilogy, from the hero’s journey starting in the first film to the reveal that Vader is Luke’s father (that he’s also Leia’s father is revealed to her in an epilogue, essentially) and the efforts of Vader to turn Luke to the Dark Side, and the destruction of the Death Star and defeat of the Emperor. See, also, Harry Potter.
