    I don't know about you guys but I am sick and tired of thinking about this.. Throughout the entire PT all we hear about the prophecy is that...

    "There will be a Jedi that will balance the force."

    And Anakin is the Jedi that will fulfill the prophecy..
    This isn't a thread to find out what the prophecy is.. this is a thread to find out if we will actually hear the Prophecy word for word..

    Where did it come from(old Holocron?)??
    I know they are EU but it's a thought.
    Who was the prophet that told of the prophecy..
    If it is such a widely known prophecy I want to hear the story..
    I like fantasy as well as SW and when I read a book that has a prophecy in it .. they always explain all these questions with a very historic and enthralling story.
    Are we, as SW fans supposed to automatically assume that the prophecy is everything that is happening coming to order..
    Or is there a greater story written out somewhere in old ,pre-knight era jedi hieroglyphs.
    I am the type of person who enjoys historical data revealed in movies to keep me from wondering and making theories as to WHY?
    If Gl isn't planning on explaining the Prophecy in detail then I am left to wonder.. besides what has been said in the PT.. what exactly is written in the TRUE prophecy..???

    Probably not. I think we'll be left with simply knowing that there was a prophecy of a Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force.
    From on screen we know that:

    The even is a prophecy.
    That it includes a Chosen One who was born of the midichlorians.
    That the Chosen One would have a higher midichlorian count than any Jedi.
    That the Chosen One would bring balance to the Force.

    As for where it originated from, I dunno? Fortune Cookie?

    Maybe, maybe not. No way to tell, really. Depends on whether it´s important to the story that we hear it.

    I hope we don't. We've got the jist of it anyway.

    I think we'll be left to wonder. Lucus got flack for making it up in the first place, so I don't think he'll be willing to go in any great depth over it.

    I dont think we will hear the prophecy in the films, but I mean that the prophecy is mentioned in TPM book, but i'm not sure.

    Nah, we'll never be given the details. I kind of wish we had been given the details at the start, but its too late now. Besides, "prophecies" don't really go with Star Wars, or even LOTR: no, prophecies should be left to Dune.

    My guess is that Mace Windu will reveal the prophesy in Ep III. It seems apparent that he knows the full prophesy, and has tried to prevent it from being fulfilled (refusing to let Qui-Gon train Anakin in TPM; telling Anakin to stay out of the conflict in AOTC)

    I'd like to hear the prophecy word for word but doubt that we ever will.

    speculation, methinks.

    but I am sure if we don't EU will take care of it for those who have to know.

    I seriously doubt we will ever hear "the Prophecy" word for word. I don't think it's essential to move the plot along, although we may get more parts of it in Episode 3. It's a slight possibility, but more speculative at this point.

    I think we would have heard the prophecy by now if GL intended to give it to us. It would be a nice thing to here. I think that he could at least put it in a bounus feature section and ease our pain.
