    A couple of things about the Chosen One prophecy.
    1. In the films, and in everywhere I've looked, there seems to be a version of it which states the Chosen one will bring balance to the force. So yes, if that is the authoritative version then all is good.
    2. However, as often with George, things are fuzzy. There is also a version which says that the Chosen one will bring balance and destroy the sith. So if that is the case, then Palpatine being alive (assuming he is actually alive) seems to contradict that.

    I realize they've consulted with George on IX, but we will never know what his advice/input was. Did he approve of this? Who knows? I know Iger alluded to the idea that consulting doesn't mean they are obligated to do what George says. They can go off in their own direction.

    Personally, and this is just me, if I were JJ, I'd have Anakin come back, even if it is just in voice, to assist in some way. They seem to want to tie all 9 films together, so why not? Especially since they are bringing back Palps. Those two are kind of tied at the hip. And hell, think of the reaction in each and every cinema when/if suddenly force ghost Anakin shows up??? Yeah. Exactly. ;)

    The Chosen Prophecy should not have been a focal point of the Jedi Council. Palaptine didn’t invest in the Sith’ari Prophecy but did his own work to create an Empire. The Jedi should have allowed the prophecy to come naturally oppose to forcing it because Anakin had such a high Mid-chlorian count. Only in relative hindsight does Yoda say, “A prophecy misreed could have been.” So wait, the Jedi never thought to examine the prophecy more carefully before putting Anakin with Palpatine? Oh Jedi foolery, no wonder they were purged.

    I REALLY loved the PT putting them together. That is definitely one of my favorite aspects. How at the end of TPM Palpatine is in situ. Fantastic. How he tells Anakin "we will watch your career with great interest." Awesome!!!!

    I think you hit it on the head there. One of the problems the Jedi have is many of them think the prophecy was ALREADY fulfilled. Then there are those few who think it hasn't. The Jedi really messed up there. Heck, why allow the chancellor to take ANY interest in a lowly Padawan??? What were they thinking???

    I picture in Palpatine mind as he says thise lines, “at last.. I have found him. Your spawn Plagueis shall be my apprentice.”

    Ths Jedi as Yoda said in AOTC, “A flaw more common among Jedi, too sure of themseleves..” Palpatine was right, “your arrogance blinds you Master Yoda.” It was arrogance that had the Jedi claim Anakin as Chosen One before they even knew what that means.

    I have said elsewhere I think the Chosen One Proohecy is Jed’aii not Jedi. The Jed’aii were obsessed with balance (Bendu) and wanted their acolytes to use Light and Dark Sides. The Jedi want to destroy the dark, “destroy the Sith we must.” (Yoda, ROTS).
