If you're not familiar with the huge amounts of mythic symbolism in the Star Wars movies, this is a nice introduction that will send you back to the library catalog to find books of Greek myths, Celtic myths, Norse myths, Arthurian legends, and more. If you're a fan of Star Wars AND Rick Riordan, you'll definitely want to check this out!
