Luke-I-am-Your-Father

 

Star Wars has some interesting examples of good and bad fathers.  Since Jonathan and his wife are expecting their first child he thought it a good idea to look to Star Wars to see what kind of father he should be.

Please note that this episode contains SPOILERS and content from the Expanded Universe.  Although Disney is tossing the Expanded Universe for its new films we still used that for this episode.

  • 5) Jango Fett father of Boba Fett
  • 4) Chewbacca father of Lowbacca
  • 3) Luke Skywalker father of Ben Skywalker
  • 2) Han Solo father of Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo
  • 1) Anakin Skywalker father of Luke and Leia Skywalker
