So the old Jedi legend tells of a Chosen One who will bring balance to the Force. What I'm curious about is - why the "Chosen" One? Who supposedly does the choosing? The Force, as a conscious entity that can choose stuff? The Jedi Order? Some deity? Where does the "Chosen" bit come from?
According to Clone Wars cartoon (specifically, "Ghosts of Mortis" episode), it's the Force.
Because to confirm if Anakin is the Chosen one, he had to be brought to The Ones (presumably evolved Celestials) on Mortis, who literally represented the Force and its Light and Dark side.
In addition, the Jedi don't seem to believe in deities, so it couldn't be that. Everything flows from the Force. Very Zen :P
Yes, that was the point at which I decided (once I learned of it) not to watch Clone wars
So much for Dumbledore's "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities". Star Wars is clearly not in Harry Potter universe, unlike E.T. :)
