Nothing reflects the beauty of Star Wars more than the concept of the Jedi. The universal idea of good versus evil through the balance of the light and dark side of the Force is just one of the things that invoke in all Star Wars fans a sense of awe and wonder.
For the word 'Jedi', George Lucas was inspired by the Japanese Jidai Geki, which refers to a drama set in medieval Japan during the time of the Samurai. (5)
Joey writes in with a very interesting bit of information about Yoda.: "I was reading the book "MAD About Star Wars" and found a bit of information George Lucas revealed to the producers of MAD regarding Master Yoda's unusual Speech Patterns. Apparently that is the SW Universe equivalent of Shakespearean English. Yoda is old enough that he was alive when the Jedi used to speak that way."
The Jedi are beings who are strong in the Force. Jedi most often refers to those who use the light side of the force, whereas those who use the dark side refer to themselves as Dark Jedi or Sith. The Jedi Order is almost as old as the Republic itself and over those millennia, many terms have become part of the Jedi lexicon such as midi-chlorian, lightsaber, and Padawan.
More than 9,000 fully trained Jedi are scattered throughout the galaxy, with a further 200 at the Jedi Temple available for emergency missions. (3)
