    We know Lucas always said that Anakin Skywalker is the chosen one, but now that Disney is in charge and the slate clean for the most part, the chances that the prophecy incorrectly was judged to be fulfilled in Anakin is certainly there.

    Qui-Gon thought it was Anakin

    Obi-Wan thought it was Luke

    And now from the EW article, Luke thought it was Ben/Kylo.

    So, who is or will be the chosen one?

    I think there are many chosen ones. The point of the chosen one is to bring balance to the force. Anakin was the chosen one, he destroyed the Jedi, except for 2. Luke balanced the force when he converted Vader and destroyed the emperor. Rey may balance the force later. Kylo Ren created an imbalance when he and the KOR killed all the Jedi except for Luke.

    We need a balance of dark and light, and since Luke thought Ben having both meant something, chances are it's Rey and Ben.

    I still can't believe that there really is still speculation regarding the issue.

    It's an original George Lucas concept he created for the PT and clarified it beyond doubt, i.e. Anakin Skywalker.

    What the various authors of recent and popular online articles (deliberately?) tend to forget or ignore that an essential part of the Prophecy of the Chosen One was a virgin birth. The only thing Lucas left to our interpretations was whether Anakin was conceived by Darth Plageuis or by the Force, but he (correctly) concluded that this is irrelevant because Anakin did fulfil the prophecy at the end.

    That rules out both Luke Skywalker or Kylo Ren as candidates for the Chosen One (unless somebody seriously claims that one of them was not conceived in a natural way...).

    The only story-telling way that would George Lucas NOT retroactively make look as if he didn't know what we was doing, would be if Luke and/or Lor San Tekka found additional texts of the Prophecy of the Chosen One that went beyond the one which was referred to in the PT.
    Only that would be a clean, appropriate and palatable solution, IMHO.

    But of course, even then, the Chosen One already has already been identified (Anakin Skywalker) so the newly found prophecy text would or could refer to kin of the chosen one, saviors or else.

    Therefore I can only hope that the "Chosen One" references in Rebels (Luke) and the EW Mark Hamill interview (Kylo Ren) only have the character of clickbait and that we will be finally looking at something that does not contradict what Lucas had in mind and won't deprive the PT (and the OT) of the context for which Lucas had designed this particular prophecy.

    If Disney plans to revive the "Chosen One" story arc for their new movies, all I can say is that they are being even more unoriginal than they were with "The Force Awakens" and their use of some of the characterizations and narratives from the "Knights of the Old Republic" video game for their movies.

    GL said Anakin is the chosen one. I do feel that, on another note, when Yoda said there is another, i thought he wasnt talking about Leia (also verified through i think a Yoda comics now that he was talking about Leia) i thought it was gonna be someone down the road (which is now the trilogies). Chosen one has been fullfilled

    A child conceived by the force will destroy the Sith and bring balance to the force. Sounds pretty damn clear to me!

    On top of that Pablo Hidalgo says all the time that Anakin is the Chosen One. That what a person says in-universe isn't always correct ie Obi-Wan calling Luke the Chosen One. It's just what he believes to be true, after all who'd think a youngling murderer would save the galaxy? Lol.

    IIRC he was there in the Jedi Council room when Mace Windu talked about the "Chosen One" after a virgin birth had been mentioned.

    So Obi-Wan couldn't have possibly ever considered Luke, unless he believed that Anakin had nothing to do with Luke's conception. ;)

    Anakin was the catalyst for the destruction of the Jedi, the Sith and their extreme views on the Force. As far as I'm concerned, Luke DID NOT "convert" him. He may have inspired Anakin, just as Palpatine had provided promises he had no intention of keeping; but Anakin was basically responsible for his own actions - good or bad.

    Also, I really wish that Disney would just accept this and move on from the Chosen One prophecy. To bring it back and retcon it so that the prophecy can follow a more conformist narrative simply smacks of a lack of originality to me.

    As much as I do not like the ST so far, it has to be Rey. It's the only way to reasonably explain the nature of her power. I could accept that story-wise, it would explain a lot and make much more sense for her character.

    Chosen ones are dumb. We've had 6 movies about them. Let's move on. Nothing can be balanced permanently any ways.
    Things ever change.
