    Riding into battle on horsy things has me a bit concerned. Is it possibly a low tech Ewok solution? Take down the First Order with the power of nature?

    I think this theme is definitely present. But it's not just an RotJ callback. We see this all over in SW. And it's not just nature v. technology, I think it goes deeper. It's the natural/spiritual/constructive vs the manufactured/institutional/destructive. It's spiritual, political, and ecological. Star Wars is all about the ragtag rebels and the balance of the Jedi, living at peace with the galaxy, versus the destructive, cold, structured force of the Empire.

    We see the same contrast in the Wookies vs the Separatists, the Gungans vs the Trade Federation, and the tension between the Jedi (peaceful, balanced) and the Republic (war mongering, institutional).

    The Orbacks are another symbol of this contrast. It's a native people using their native creatures, their connection to the land, to fight a destructive occupier.

    The more you look the Orbacs, the more "George Lucas" the idea becomes.

    One could argue the “nature” is the Force, especially if you take into consideration Luke training Rey in TLJ when he asks hercto reaxh h out and she sees “the island, life, death, new life.”

    At last.. the plane has been found.

    *Sends Tie Fighters to intercept* (tie)

    On a serious note, what places does that SW plane go to and do they have SW music onboard?
