I’m a new member and I wanted to see what the esteemed group feels about my take on the whole prophecy idea. Before I begin, please excuse me if this has been discussed a thousand times. I’ve searched for prophecy and didn’t find anything. If it has been discussed, I would appreciate a pointer. Anyway, I think the point of all 6 movies is that Annikan *had* to go through the entire cycle in order to fulfill the prophecy. We saw in Ep3 that Yoda was unable to kill the Sith. And, I believe it was stated that Yoda was the most powerful Jedi. So, there was no way Annikan could have killed the Sith unless he had learned the ways of the Dark Side. Finally, it was only the love for his son, that allowed him to break the hold the dark side had on him (thus, he had to have children). So, basically, the whole saga had to take place for Annikan to fulfill the prophecy and bring the force back into balance. The implication is the metachlorines figured this out and impregnated Annikan’s mother to fix the mess the Sith had created.
What do you think?
