    Yeah, of course it can be anything, but if we assume The Mandalorian plot will be somehow relevant to the bigger picture, so to speak, and it revolves around a 50yo cold case which also takes our protagonist to Tatooine, then Anakin sure does fit the bill :) Now, I am not so invested in this idea that I'm gonna be cranky and toxic if it turns out not to be the case, but I thought it was an interesting prospect. Nothing else goes on in 41 BBY (AFAIK).

    Again, the plot could be about something entirely random, but it seems weird that they chose the 50 year old tracking code thingy if it wasn't meant to hint at something. I mean, in and of itself, a 50yo cold case is not very inspiring; it only becomes inspiring when we learn what the old story was about, but they didn't tease THAT plot in the trailer, which would be the sensible thing to do if we're supposed to fall in love with the show over a new cold case plot. No, I think it is very possible that The Mandalorian will end up giving us some backstory on what the hellion went down with Shmi and Palpy and everything that resulted in the Chosen One's birth. We'll see :)

    He's a clone of another bounty hunter that's over 50 years old.
    I like this idea.

    Man between you and Jon Fav I'm not sure whom I despise the most right now. Why? Between the trailer last night and this post, I'm dying for this show. Darn I can't wait till November 12.

    I think you hit on something here. I can't see this NOT being Tatooine. I know we've had some other desert planets including Jakkuu and Jedah, but man this just feels like you hit the nail on the head. Good job!

    I personally feel they will be making connections with the sequel trilogy more than the prequel, but we will find out soon enough, can't wait!

    Knowing what we think we know about TROS,
    I'm guessing the bounty has to do with Rey's parents, aka Palpatine's son or daughter, and the baby in question is Rey.

    So, not Anakin then :)
    It is fun to speculate but also cool to be proven wrong :D

    Who could have predicted that though? but thats what makes it so good and so well written, if we were predicting everything correct all the time it would get boring right? you we're in the right area though and good detective work

    Qui-Gon’s senses were “Decieved” (Darth Malgus voice), Anakin was not the Chosen One but a distraction. It was Kitster all along.

    Now that we know it's all true, and the news/rumors that The Mandalorian might spoil The Rise Of Skywalker it all comes full circle, I believe this is why they planned the last chapter to be aired on December 27th, the answer might be there :D

    Okay, so we have cloning, we have a baby Yoda (same race), we have imperial remnant looking for it, but also another faction wanting it dead... Yeah, I got nothing. Although I did think that Rey could be a clone of Anakin or Luke... Maybe she's a clone of Palpatine?
