Anakin's Canon Age[edit source]

So, it looks like Anakin's age in Attack of the Clones in this article has been cited as 19 based on the fact that he's known to have been born in 41 BBY. This is a change from Legends, in which he was always said to be 20 in Attack of the Clones. However, the 41 BBY birth year seems to me to be consistent with the Legends explanation of him being born at 41.9 BBY (still less than 42 years before ANH), leaving him almost 10 in TPM and barely 20 in AotC. The 20-year-old age in AotC was also supported by various promotional materials for the film at the time it came out. I would think this could still be the intention of the story group for the canon, unless we have a source explicitly stating that he's 19 in AotC (I haven't seen one, but maybe it exists?).

Ah, thanks for the detail! But that would appear to leave only 21 years between AotC and ANH, instead of the usual 22 years? I guess maybe he either turns 20 during AotC, or turns 42 during Rogue One/ANH? RainbowDroideka (talk) 23:44, July 4, 2020 (UTC)
