I would have thought it complete balderdash but when my grown nephew brought over two DVD Players and two television sets, I admit I was curious. In one machine he cued up Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith (2005) and in the other, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). He pressed play simultaneously on both. He explained that we were to watch only Revenge of the Sith, but with the volume turned all the way down. Meanwhile, the set with Willy Wonka was on full volume but behind us and facing away.
Readers, the result was nothing less than mind-altering. What unfolded before me was a synchronicity the likes I’ve not experienced ever before, even with that trifling business about Pink Floyd and The Wizard of Oz.
The entire audio of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory aligns perfectly with the moving pictures of George Lucas’s final prequel film, so perfectly and poetically that it can by no means be a coincidence. If you are skeptical, as I was, then watch this brief example:
Lucas must have structured his ultimate film, and thus the very legend of Darth Vader, to mirror the journey of Charlie Bucket, Grampa Joe, and Big Willy W himself. What this means on the deepest of levels I am only now beginning to investigate. But first I suppose I should watch the other Star Wars movies to get an idea what they are about, seeing as besides Sith, I’ve seen only the Star Wars Christmas Special of 1978 and that was when it first aired, and at the time I thought it was a holiday episode of Maud.
