Star Wars" Chosen One Prophecy Damages Return Of The Jedi

Although Star Wars' "Prophecy of the Chosen One" provides a cosmic through-line of fate across the first six episodes of the Skywalker saga, it does more harm than good for Return of the Jedi. Beginning in The Phantom Menace, Anakin Skywalker becomes a Jedi after Qui-Gon Jinn believes the young boy is the Chosen One, putting Skywalker on the path toward his ultimate destiny to bring balance to the Force. However, it can be argued that it detracts from Anakin's redemption as Darth Vader and the personal connection with his son in Return of the Jedi.
Having no father, Anakin fit the criteria of the prophecy while also having Midi-chlorian levels that exceeded Yoda's, meaning he was one of the most powerful Force-sensitives in existence. As such, Qui-Gon was determined to train Skywalker, though the task was passed to Obi-Wan Kenobi following Jinn's death. However, no one in the Jedi Order expected Anakin to bring balance following a surprise corruption to the dark side, becoming Darth Vader as the apprentice to Emperor Palpatine. After destroying nearly all the Jedi and securing the Empire's reign, Anakin's fulfillment of the prophecy wouldn't happen for years until Return of the Jedi, and it's all thanks to his son Luke.
