Why can't Anakin be a Master? Anakin's appointment was political, not spiritual. Historically the Jedi elected their own leaders by consulting the will of the Force and by mutual consent. Anakin, on the other hand, was appointed directly by Palpatine as his 'envoy' to the Council, and his appointment pushed through by Palpatine's allies in the Senate. In ...

Watch the video again and you'll see why. Jedi believe in emotionless serenity, they don't let their emotions cloud their judgment. Anakin was a powerful Jedi but he was still far too passionate and emotional. A prime example of this was his reaction to being denied the rank of master, yelling at the council for not promoting you is surely not an example of ...

As we see in The Rise of Skywalker, he is alive and well prior to the assault on Exegol. He is only there for a second, but Denis Lawson did reprise his role for a cameo.

As of right now, we do not know. This could be revealed in the future in a movie, a TV series, or in a book, but it has not been revealed yet. It's like asking who her parents were before Episode VIII came out - they definitely existed, but it just hadn't been canonically defined yet.

He shuffled this technical data feed out of view and pulled up the news coming ...

The war was more then just creating an army. other decisions would have to been made and in such a large democracy the bureaucracy would slow them down to much to be effective in a war. Also they believed that Palpatine himself was heavily against a war and that he would relinquish these powers and disband the army when the time came.

There's a couple of things at play here Mandalorian has two meanings In a normal world, Mandalorian would refer to people from Mandalore. In the Star Wars universe, everything is fluid. As such, a Mandalorian can also refer to someone who believes in The Mandalorian Way (I'll just call it The Way for simplicity, since that's all they ever call it in the ...

Most likely a large part of why Sith do this is because they feel that they are truly different people then they were before, and do not want to continue using the same names. Throughout the Star Wars films, there is an emphasis on the fact that when someone falls to the Dark Side they become someone different then they were before, from a certain point of ...

Classic False Flag. Dooku's people come close but not quite close enough to capture Palpatine--as a Sith, Palpatine was quite capable of assuring his own survival against some bounty hunters. The near miss, ideally with some friendly casualties, does three things. First, it creates fear. After all, if Dooku could get someone that close to the well-guarded ...
