Star Wars - Existentialist Edition

I don't know exactly what French-speaking existential philosophers like Jean-Paul Sartre or Albert Camus would have thought about films like Star Wars... and while I can see some respects in which the movies deal with philosophical issues, my guess is that the existentialists might have thought the famous trilogy indulged in too much mauvaise foi (bad faith) for their taste.

But what if the franchise were written as an existentialist film? This is what it might have looked like :)
