It is highly doubtful that the Jedi would have considered the possibility that Yoda was the Chosen One. The prophecy of the Chosen One, as given in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, reads: In the time of greatest despair, a child shall be born who will destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force. Yoda was born ...

Anakin was the chosen one. He was supposed to destroy the Sith and later on become the most powerful Jedi ever. Palpatine got to him too early before he knew what was good for him. Everyone was testing him at once, the council, obi-wan and the force (his dreams). The only reassurance he got was from Palpatine. While training Luke, Yoda explained that ...

One interesting concept about heroes and chosen ones is the Monomyth described by Campbell. He describes the phases the journey of the chosen one goes through, and it happens to appear in a lot of cultures. One could consider the Epic of Gilgamesh (arguably the first fantasy literature ever to exist) to be one of such stories. Another very old example could ...

“When the shadow of the Bogan falls upon them, the Ashla will not desert them because in the time of greatest despair there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.” -Sarus reciting a scripture regarding the Prophecy of the Chosen One The other name for the chosen one prophecy is "The son of suns". I don't think you will find ...

In the Star Wars Rebels episode "Twin Suns", Maul He figures out that Obi-Wan is "protecting someone" (who we know is Luke). After Obi-Wan Maul asks Obi-Wan: "Tell me. Is it the Chosen One?", to which Obi-Wan replies: "He is". After a cut scene, we see Obi-Wan So, in Disney TV canon, it appears Luke is now set as the Chosen One! Anakin may or may not ...

As Wad Cheber said, the author of The Jedi Path, Daniel Wallace, stated that it wasn't really intended to be seen. However, there seems to have been an oversight with the pages available for preview on the trade edition's amazon page, where probably due to some quirk of the scanner and/or the process they used to print black marks over the text, the tone of ...

Could you be thinking of the 1986 film, Starchaser: Legend of Orin? In the future on a planet named Trinia, human slaves have lived underground for millennia mining crystals for a "god" named Zygon and his robot minions. One day Orin, a young miner, finds a jeweled sword embedded in the rocks. Hopps, grandfather of Orin's girlfriend Elan, recognizes the ...

This blog is written by one of the people who worked on the book. He says that he did indeed write 3 pages worth of the prophecy, but only left a few bits and pieces in the finished text. When they were working on the book, they wanted to include a section on the prophecy, so they contacted Lucasfilms for advice; they were told that Lucasfilms planned to ...

The old novelization for A New Hope (by George Lucas and Alan Dean Foster) has the "son of the suns" quote at the beginning and attributes it to the Whills: "... And in the time of greatest despair there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as: THE SON OF THE SUNS." Journal of the Whills, 3:127

I believe to have been able to put together the original sentences using the amazon ebook pages. The actual book text is just a garble of messages that one can't really make out. But as I was transcribing the ebook into paper, I realized I was just writing the same things over and over again. The book pages that are blocked out with the black marks are just ...

According to Clone Wars cartoon (specifically, "Ghosts of Mortis" episode), it's the Force. Why? 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 ...

The comments to the OP make it clear this is going to bog down in definitional issues, so we might as well throw out some possibilities: Paul Atreides (Muad'dib) from Dune as a sort of Messiah Aragorn (Elessar) from the Tolkein canon as a fulfiller of prophecies Aslan from the Narnia series as an allegory of Christ

A couple more possibilities: Thomas Covenant, who stumbled into a situation where there were prophesies of a savior, which appeared to fit him ("half-hand" with ring of white gold).  As he first saw print in 1977, he's probably not the first. If we're going to mention LotR, I nominate Frodo.  He was literally chosen (albeit by fate, family history, and ...

What about an off-the-wall answer or perhaps anti-answer, where an Anti-Christ is the "Chosen One?" Written from a Catholic perspective very much of its period, it describes the near obliteration of Christianity and the rise of an Anti-Christ proclaimed by the populous. Even though it is very much a polemic, it is still science fiction with predictions of ...

"Anakin is the chosen one" Featurette: The Chosen One - George Lucas Anakin is clearly the chosen one. Now the problem with the fans they're thinking Luke because anakin turns to the dark side.Because without Luke in the first place,Anakin will not fulfill his mission. Supposedly by now, they should now think that Anakin is the chosen One. Because He ...

The chosen one was Anakin but probably Jedi didn`t read the prophecy in the right way. The chosen one must bring balance in the Force. When Palpatine said that Jedi become arrogant, dominant, too aggressive in Revenge of The Sith, it was true so the balance of the Force, in this case, pending to the Dark side. Why? Obi-Wan betray Anakin. He let him burn ...
