Chosen One stories seem to be everywhere, from Harry Potter to ancient myth. The most archetypal examples come from the Star Wars universe, where each trilogy's hero is plucked from obscurity and given massive responsibility. It's only in the prequel trilogy, however, that the hero is explicitly labeled as " The Chosen One. A compelling new theory argues that while he may be the Chosen One, that wasn't his main focus in life. Redditor MajorBlackie Anakin's arc has more to do with his traumatic past as a slave than his struggle to live up to the "Chosen One" mantle. Instead, he wants to get away from Tatooine, whether it be as a smuggler or as a soldier. Then he's taken under the Jedi Council's wing. Between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones , he becomes more indoctrinated with their values, devout in the ways of the Force, and seems to be on the perfect track towards becoming what everyone wants him to be: the fabled hero who will bring balance. In Attack of the Clones , an adolescent Anakin is confronted by his past quite literally in the form of Padme, who in a way represents his salvation. As he falls for her, he's reminded of his journey, and his childhood fantasy of freeing all the slaves.
Luke and Anakin Skywalker have had very different Star Wars journeys. Anakin would join the dark side and eventually take the mantle of Darth Vader, the franchise's big bad. Meanwhile, Luke fought against the urges for the dark side and was responsible for taking down the Sith.

Christensen has even said in the past that he's not the biggest fan of sand and understood Anakin's contempt for it while saying he could tolerate it better than the character he played. In a new Star Wars comic, Anakin's son Luke just referenced the moment with a completely opposite take on the sand. He ends up on Serelia, where he chases a woman in a robe on a boat.

On top of this, he is very present in the extended universe, and so there is so much knowledge and information out there to get consumed relating to the character. Nevertheless, there are still some things that do not make complete sense about Anakin, and some questions are still unanswered. This creates two problems. But, sticking with Rex, when did Anakin tell Rex about this relationship? Did Rex walk in on the two, or did Anakin go to Rex and open up to him about it. It is a significant character moment for both and creates an interesting narrative if Anakin deliberately told Rex, and not anyone else. This gets explained in the novelization of the film that states Cliegg gave the droid back to its rightful owner in Anakin but is technically unexplained in canon.
