1 Happy Family?


Recommended Posts

someone has said to me that that Emperor had secretly inpregnated Shimi. Is this the story everyone goes by?

Episode III has made it much more likely that the deceased Darth Plagueis is Anakin's father. Personally, I suspect Sifo Dyas/Palpatine was the apprentice to this Sith Lord. If Palpatine was Anakin's father, it would clash with the message behind Return of the Jedi involving the redemption of a father via his son.

I'm thinking Palpatine lied about Plageus (however that's spelled) being able to cheat death. He just lied to Anakin to get him interested in the Dark Side's powers.


I don't doubt Palpatine was Plageus' apprentice, though.

I think he or his master somehow used the force to cause Anakin's birth, but that's as far as my understanding goes. I wouldn't exactly say they "impregnated" her, though.

If anyone tells you it's 100% one or the other, they're wrong. George Lucas said himself in a recent interview that it's deliberately left open to interpretation - it's up to the viewer to decide. Personally, I love that - almost makes up for the midichlorian thing (which I don't mind so much any more - with the story of Darth Plagueus it actually seems kind of cool now).


So go with what you want. Personally, I like to think Darth Plagueus and his implied student, Palpatine, had something to do with manipulating Anakin's birth, and tried to create a false prophet. Unbeknownst to them, he actually was the chosen one (didn't matter if they helped to make it happen or not), and did, in the end, destroy the Sith.


But like I said, it's deliberately left open for you to decide!
