Still, at the center of this matinee adventure is the tale of young Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and his mystical, monkish mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness).
While rescuing princesses and blowing up death stars, the apprentice Jedi knight is schooled in meditation, mind control, swordplay, and the mysterious ways of "the force."
For more mentoring, tune in to The Empire Strikes Back where Luke goes on to graduate studies with Yoda. ***
