Adorably concerned boy asks George Lucas to change Jedi marriage rules
Today in “Stop, it hurts too cute,” The Mary Sue reports that 7-year-old “Star Wars” fan Colin Gilpatric wrote a super-concerned (and SUPER adorable) letter to George Lucas re: a Jedi convention that was NOT to Colin’s liking.
Dear George Lucas,
I don’t like that a Jedi cannot get married. I want to get married without becoming a Sith. Please change the rule.
P.S. I want to come to Skywalker Ranch please.
Ah, the age-old question, how to find “the one” without becoming Darth Vader? Leave it to the experts at Lucasfilm to handle this concern absolutely perfectly. See their response below:
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
Hooray, Colin got his question answered PLUS presents! The Force is strong within Lucasfilm.
