Also, I do think there is a bit of irony in how fiercely people will defend the idea of the Saga being the story of Anakin, and be offended by the idea that the ST undermines Anakin’s position as the Chosen One, when George himself said he was going to make Leia the Chosen One in his Sequel Trilogy. We treat his work as religious text when he’s making it up on the fly.
I’m actually the most consistent person on this topic, just read what I wrote in my previous posts. To me, Anakin is the protagonist of the Saga and is the Chosen One. Anyone who contradicts this truth is wrong, even if it’s Lucas himself who does so. But I don’t think he would have done that, because if you read carefully what he said, you’ll understand that he didn’t wanted to make Leia the Chosen One in a literal sense, but in a more metaphorical sense. So, tecnically Anakin Is the Chosen One anyways.
