Trideo Media launches a new podcast and video series hosted by ‘That Star Wars Priest’ Fr. Roderick Vonhögen. The Dutch priest is known by many Star Wars fans thanks to his reaction videos on YouTube in which he shares his enthusiasm for movies like The Last Jedi or Solo: A Star Wars Story.
According to Fr. Vonhögen, the enduring success of the Star Wars franchise may be linked to its spiritual and religious undertones: “George Lucas’ original idea was to create a modern mythology that would be able to pass on important values to a new generation. He deliberately integrated many moral and religious themes from various religions and philosophies in the fabric of his universe”.
In his new show, Fr. Roderick Vonhögen talks about these themes from the unique perspective of a catholic priest, philosopher, theologian and Star Wars fan. That Star Wars Priest can be found on the website Trideo.com and on podcasting platforms like iTunes.
