I'm stuck on this question: Is Anakin the chosen one just because eveyone said he was, or is Luke, because he saved the galaxy?

Anakin pratically killed the emperor by helping Luke from the Emperor.

Luke was just there to pull Anakin from Dark side to the Light.

Luke never had a chance to kill the emperor, remember the emperor basically killed 2 jedi masters under 1 minute (he lost to Mindu though).

Anakin was the Chosen one.

ANakin is, because he brought literal balance to the force, 2 sith and 2 jedi. The the other Jedi in the books are second tier cannon, in other words cannon for the books, not cannon for George Lucas. Luke is merely Anakin's very whiney offspring.
There is a special place in Hell for Forum Flamers, right next Child Molesters and those who talk in the theatre.

That was not what was referred to as balance. The books are Canon as well. Not "Second Tier." There is only one continuity.

From GL

"The first film starts with the last age of the Republic, which is it's getting tired, it's old, it's getting corrupt.

There's the rise of the Sith, who are becoming a force, and in the backdrop of this we have Anakin Skywalker, a young boy who is destined to be a significant player in bringing balance back to the Force and to the Republic...

Then in the second film we get into more of that turmoil. It's the beginning of the Clone Wars, it's the beginning of the end of democracy in the Republic, sort of the beginning of the end of the Republic. And it's Anakin Skywalker beginning to deal with some of his more intense emotions of anger, hatred, sense of loss, possessiveness, jealousy, and the other things he has to cope with.

And then we will get to the 3rd film where he is seduced to the dark side..

Which brings us up to the films 4, 5, and 6, in which Anakin's offspring redeem him and allow him to fulfill the prophecy where he brings balance to the Force by doing away with the Sith and getting rid of evil in the universe..."

Removing the Sith is what created balance. Not bringing the numbers equal to the Jedi. The Sith were throwing the force out of balance.

Thinking about it now, by the time of ROTJ...theres still imbalance all through the movie. At the start, it starts out as 2 jedi and 2 sith but then 1 jedi dies so now its 1 jedi and 2 sith. But then at the end, there are 2 jedi and 0 sith but one jedi dies so theres only 1 jedi and no sith.

Light Side is balance, Dark Side Causes Imbalance. So it was Balance.


Luke isn't the chosen one. Anakin is. Luke is what Anakin should have been. Anakin brought complete imbalance(Wiping out the Jedi Order) and then brought pure balance.

Saying Luke is whiny in comparison to Anakin is one of the funniest things I think I have ever seen on these forums.....

According to hard canon the chosen one is Anakin. He destroyed the Sith and brought balance to the force by killing the emperor. However if you go by the EU then there isnt really a chosen one at all because the emperor came back and so did lots of other dark force users, making the whole balance thing meaningless.

Not quite. That's thrown around a lot as well. Dark side isn't imbalance. The sith are imbalanced. There's other dark side users and they're fine. the thing is the Jedi protect and uphold the value of the republic but they don't force their light philosophy on others. The sith aim to turn the entire galaxy dark and eradicate the light. Which creates imbalance.

Dark Side itself(The entire thing) causes imbalance. Any Practicioner of the Dark Side causes Imbalance. According to Lucas. Light Side is Balance. Dark Side causes Imbalance. If there was only Light Side, everything would be balance.

Does that make sense?


Any presence of the Dark, Numbers matter not, just the presence of the Dark Side causes imbalance.

I'm not good at explaining things.


And the EU messes it up, there really is no chosen one in EU.

Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."
