    Maybe Palps was slowly possessing Luke this whole entire time?!

    Maybe Palps transformed himself into a baby's body and now Leia adopted it without knowing it was Palps? The evil baby!!!

    The prophecy was made after the OT. The OT had no prophecy spoken of and now we are in a bind to progress the story line without screwing up canon.

    I apologize I did get carried away. I just get so amped up I can't help it half the time. I'll keep trying harder.

    The prophecy is resolved. The story can move forward.

    I can't really see myself caring if anything in the sequel trilogy contradicts something established in the prequels. The less references to the prequels the better I say.

    I think he meant in-universe not in regards to the actual production

    In the original draft of ANH, the prophecy was meant to be mentioned in the scrolling text and Luke was the Chosen One. Lucas scrapped it in the final draft.

    (it probably would've made more sense if Luke was the Chosen One, tbh)

    Like you? There seems to be an inordinate amount of "Chosen Ones" on this forum. Perhaps the title has already been trivialized, and we're just realizing it!

    "You were the Chosen One...!"
    "Whatever, there are so many of us here anyway."

    I just hope that they don't go the route of Dune with the Kwisatz Haderach. Luke being the true Chosen One is fine but Dune got so carried away its not funny. I don't mind it but that was absurd.

    I don't know but I'd guess around a couple thousand years considering the fact the angle has a close resemblance to christ. I'm not hugely involved in the EU but I have dabbled in it. (mainly video games) I can't recall it ever being said. All I can recall is the Sith were around for thousands of years and KOTOR took place 2 thousand years ago I think? Sometime shortly after that I'd say as a guess.

    Two trilogies dedicated to bringing him down and they bring him back? Not going to happen.

    Would be the definition of lame.

    You must unlearn what you have learned.
    Lucas does as he wishes. Not what we want.

    Different prophecy, but similar: the "Son of Suns" as opposed to the "Chosen One".
