Anakin's Canon Age[]

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)
The newly-published The Star Wars Book states that Anakin is 10 years old when Qui-Gon finds him on Tattoine. Is this a mistake?Kingsman28 (talk) 22:12, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Hmm, okay it does seem to be a mistake as later on the book states that Anakin is 9 years old when Qui-Gon meets him. Guess it's a disagreement between Holocron files.Kingsman28 (talk) 22:50, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

Blond hair color[]

I've made this reversion several times now, so I want to explain in further detail than an edit summary can contain. Anakin's hair color in canon is never called "brown," but some editors have speculated that it is that color in their opinion and added it to the infobox. In canon, Anakin and Luke's childhood hair color is stated to be "blond", and as an adult it is called "light" and "dark" in shade without naming the color. Legends, it was "blond" as a child and "sandy-blond" as a young adult. Please do not change the color to something else without providing a citation for that change. :) Immi Thrax RainbowRebellion2.png (talk) 14:23, 2 July 2021 (UTC)

Birth planet[]

Why is Anakin listed as being born on Tatooine even though it's stated in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace that he and his mother moved there when he was very young? 90.213.118.8 14:05, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

  • Homeworld could mean the world one was born on, but it could also mean the world one was raised on. OOM 224 ༼༽talk༼༽ 14:09, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
    • I believe it's listed on the article as where he's born (in addition to homeworld) because The Star Wars Book states "Born on the desert planet Tatooine, Anakin Skywalker spends his early days as an enslaved person alongside his mother, Shmi." I personally feel like that's an erroneous statement conflicting with the film, and that book has some other errors in it. (In Legends, it was more explicitly confirmed that he wasn't born there through depicting his arrival on the planet, but Legends books don't apply to canon). What do other people think?

Death Star[]

In Star Wars Episode 3, in the end scene, we see Vader, Tarkin, and the Emperor watching the Death Star. I have read the Darth Vader 2017 comic and it doesn't show that scene anywhere, so when did that scene take place. Erdan5 ( talk) 02:35, September 25, 2021 (UTC)

  • I do not believe that it has ever been firmly established. VergenceScatter (talk) 19:43, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
    • It seems like it happens after issue 6 of that series at this point Lewisr (talk) 21:55, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
