"Anakin Skywalker" is a booklet in a series of canon reference booklets titled the Star Wars Encyclopedia. It was published on June 8, 2021.[1]

Publisher's summary[]

Raised as a slave from his earliest childhood, Anakin Skywalker always aspired to be something more. He possessed a great sense of justice, an extraordinary knack for mechanics, and surprising acumen for someone so young. All of this was mainly due to his great affinity with the Force. Only one encounter with Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn was enough for the Master to think that Anakin might be the Chosen One to bring balance to the Force. Young Skywalker would fulfill his dream of becoming a Jedi and this would mark a turning point in the course of galactic history that no one could have foreseen.[1]

Continuity[]

The booklet's information on Yerbana consists of a French translation of the English Wookieepedia article on the planet.

The booklet states that the "business on Cato Neimoidia" referenced by Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith was an operation undertaken by Kenobi and Skywalker just before the Battle of Yerbana,[2] in 19 BBY.[3] This corresponds with the Star Wars Legends depiction of the event in James Luceno's 2005 novel Labyrinth of Evil.[4] However, the 2022 novel Brotherhood will depict a canon version of the incident[5] occurring in 22 BBY,[6] overwriting the encyclopedia.

  6. Brotherhood is set between the beginning of the Clone Wars and the Battle of Christophsis, as the novel's plot involves Anakin Skywalker becoming a Jedi Knight, a rank he attained between those events. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates both events to 22 BBY, Brotherhood must be set in that year.
