Anakin’s Father

I was watching Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith the other night and I came to a startling conclusion. It is my suspicion that Palpatine is Anakin’s father. It all comes together:

  1. Anakin was “spawned by the midichlorians”.
  2. Palpatine can use the Dark Side to influence the midichlorians to “create life”.
  3. Profit.

*In an earlier post at, I wrote that my girlfriend came up with this theory. She has since corrected me. Her theory was that Darth Plagueis was Anakin’s father. So this one is my theory.
