With the latest trailer for The Last Jedi, one can say that Star Wars hysteria has begun. With this comes many questions and speculations about what fans may see in December. Let us take a deeper look at why the Jedi needs to end by examining the fall of 2 Skywalkers.
Many will argue that Anakin was manipulated by Palpatine to become his apprentice by offering him a chance to save Padme from death during childbirth. Now, this is accurate, but Anakin’s turn to the dark side was more complicated than Padme’s death. Anakin had turned to the Dark Side as Palpatine corrupted the Jedi Order to the point that it is hard to call the Jedi good guys after watching The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network as they strayed far from the path of peacekeepers.
Imagine watching someone that you have faith in, go against everything they taught you by trying to execute a man in cold blood. This was the crucial moment that turned Anakin when Mace Windu had gone against the code. Anakin was belittled by the Jedi Council by not being considered one of them because of Palpatine’s assignment. He then went on because of the faith he had in everything that he was taught.
Palpatine may have manipulated the events, but the Jedi lost sight and betrayed Anakin.
Now, this may be speculative but with these pieces, we have learned throughout The Force Awakens and the trailer for #The Last Jedi, one can go out on a big limb here without the fear of falling. Leia may have proclaimed that Snoke seduced Ben, but how did Snoke get close enough to Ben? Unless something that Luke had done sent Ben into a tantrum and sought advice elsewhere.
We know that Kylo Ren is a huge Vader fanboy, but what if he had started out as an Anakin fanboy and then wanted to be the best Jedi?
Luke was at his best when he had disobeyed the Jedi and did what he thought was right. He saw that people could be brought back from the Dark Side.
Luke betraying everything that the Jedi stood for by teaching another way may have made Ben think that he will not be as good as Anakin Skywalker. Then Snoke swooped in and tells him that can be powerful as Darth Vader with this teachings.
