Anakin Skywalker and a burning force tree
Anakin Skywalker, The Chosen One

“Chosen One shall come, born of no father, and through him will ultimate balance in the Force be restored.”

Master & Apprentice, Claudia Gray

While the book hit stands recently, it has provided the most detailed version of the ‘Chosen One’ prophecy to date. THS writer JJ Goodman wrote an awesome article on the prophecy. He hit many valid points. It was his final paragraph that was off. JJ stated:

“Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader is dead. With the Chosen One Prophecy unrealized, will the Force now forever be unbalanced?”

It is this last statement that I want to visit and correct. Anakin was the ‘chosen one’ and DID fulfill the prophecy. I will cover the completion later, but first I want to go back in time a bit further. This first part is my opinion, but it does fit with the prophecy.
