– It’s time for our Spotlight! This week it’s all about Anakin Skywalker.
– We discuss his beginnings on Tatooine, before he was discovered by Qui Gon and Obi-Wan.
– Did expectation for his destiny play into his loss of innocence and, ultimately, his fall?
– What about his lack of father? Was he truly an immaculate conception, or was his father a deadbeat?
– His conflict with the Council begins as early as Episode I, when they refuse to train him.
– Was Anakin’s relationship with Obi-Wan more father and son, or one between siblings?
– We bemoan the lack of development regarding his family, and the life his mother led post his leaving Tatooine.
– When we think of Anakin, we mostly think of the one presented to us in Clone Wars.
– So many little things played into the catalyst of Anakin’s fall in Episode III. We discuss some of them.
– Got any thoughts about Anakin and his fall? Hit us up in the comments, or on social media and let us know!
