"First comes the day
Then comes the night.
After the darkness
Shines through the light.
The difference, they say,
Is only made right
By the resolving of gray
Through refined Jedi sight."
―Journal of the Whills, 7:477[src]

The Journal of the Whills was a journal that referenced the Jedi. A verse within the journal labeled 7:477 contained a sort of poem concerning the darkness and the light.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The conception of the Journal of the Whills dates back to the earliest drafts of the Star Wars franchise, in which filmmaker George Lucas had intended to use the Journal as a plot device for connecting the Star Wars galaxy to the real world.[2] While this idea was ultimately dropped, the Journal was mentioned in several Star Wars sources such as the novelization of the original film, which like the novelization of The Force Awakens, was written by Alan Dean Foster.[3][1] The Journal of the Whills was first made canon by the novelization of The Force Awakens, which opens with a quotation from the journal.[1]
