The Controversial Claim: Anakin Skywalker – Greatest Jedi or Not


Dave Filoni has been known to have a keen understanding of what makes a good Star Wars product, but despite his influence in recent years, he continues to divide fans.

In a promotional appearance for the upcoming series “Ahsoka” on Disney+, Filoni boldly claimed that Anakin Skywalker is the “single greatest Jedi of all time.” This declaration predictably sparked heated debates among fans, as any assertion of being the “greatest” in any franchise tends to do.

While some fans stood by Filoni’s statement, the prevailing sentiment was that he was entirely mistaken. Like all such discussions, personal preferences play a significant role, with some fans even defending much-disliked characters like Jar Jar Binks.

The question of whether Anakin is truly the greatest Jedi in the Star Wars universe will likely remain a subject of ongoing debate, especially as Anakin is set to appear in “Ahsoka.”

The Controversial Claim: Anakin Skywalker - Greatest Jedi or Not

Anakin Skywalker’s journey was a complex one that took decades to fully unfold. Initially, Hayden Christensen’s portrayal of the character received mixed reactions, but over time, he has become beloved by fans.

His recent return as Anakin in the Disney+ series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” provided further insight into the character’s transformation into Darth Vader. Christensen reflected on the understanding of Anakin’s choices and circumstances that led to his fall to the dark side, humanizing and evoking empathy for Darth Vader as a tragic figure.

As “Ahsoka” prepares to debut on Disney+, fans eagerly anticipate the role of Anakin Skywalker in the series. While Filoni’s statement may have sparked controversy, it also adds to the excitement and anticipation surrounding the show.

Until then, fans can catch up on the entire Star Wars saga, including other TV off-shoots like “Obi-Wan Kenobi” and “The Mandalorian” on Disney+.
