This is an interesting explanation of the Star Wars movie themes from Wikipedia.

In the fictional universe of the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas, The Force is a binding, metaphysical, and ubiquitous power Introduced in the original Star Wars film (1977), it is wielded by the Jedi and Sith monastic orders and is a part of all subsequent Star Wars works, including the Star Wars Legends collection of comic books, novels, and video games. The line “May the Force be with you”, spoken in each of the Star Wars films, has become part of the pop culture vernacular and is iconic of the series.

Asked whether the Force is God in the Star Wars universe, George Lucas replied:

“I put the Force into the movies in order to try to awaken a certain kind of spirituality in young people. More a belief in God than a belief in any particular religious system. The real question is to ask the question; because if you have enough interest in the mysteries of life to ask the questions “Is there a God?” or “Is there not a God?” that’s for me is the worst thing that can happen. If you asked a young person “Is there a God?” and they said “I don’t know” I think you should have an opinion about that. I think there is a God, no question. What that God is or what we know about that God, I am not sure. The one thing I know about life and the nature of the human race is that the human race has always believed it’s known everything. Even the cavemen thought they had it all figured out and they knew everything there was to know about everything because that’s where mythology came from. It’s constructing some kind of context for the unknown. I would say that cavemen on a scale understood about one. Now we’ve made it up to about five. The only thing is that most people don’t realize is that the scale goes to a million.”
